        De Concepti et generatione hominis: de matrice ab euis partius.

      Sigusmund Feyerabend, Frankfurt 1580 - ILLUSTRATED BY JOST AMMAN 4to. ff (vi) 100. Italic letter. t.p with attractive bedroom scene of a successful delivery, 1/2 page arms of the dedicatee on next, more than twenty quarter to full page woodcuts of foetuses, birthing scenes, infants, obstetric equipment, twins, monsters and the female anatomy, by the celebrated illustrator Jost Amman. Uniform light paper browning, four leaves foxed, a good copy in its original limp vellum. First edition illustrated by Jost Amman of Rueff's celebrated manual of obstetrics, which "contains the first true anatomical pictures in an obstetrics book," Garrison & Morton. The text is an improved version of Rösslin's 'Der Swangern Frauen' but its importance to the embryologist lies in Rueff's illustrations which show contemporary ideas about mamalian embryology (see G & M 463), and which corrected many of Rösslin's more fantastic images. "Jacob Rueff, city physician of Zurich was responsible for the instruction and examination of the midwives of the canton. He followed the example of Rösslin and in 1554 completed his popular guide for midwives, which next to Rösslin's 'Rosengarten' became the most important obstetrical work of the Renaissance period, and with Jost Amman's fine woodcuts it is ranked as one of the most famous illustrated medical books of the sixteenth century. The book is addressed not only to midwives, pregnant women and women in childbed but also physicians and the council of scholars in general. copies [were sent] to all midwives and nurses in the canton and they were obliged to have an appropriate section of it read aloud 'by a well-read woman', if possible during any confinement they attended. Most of the illustrations. are considerably improved as they were all redrawn by Amman. His own splendid woodcuts (none of which are signed) added to the 1580 edition of Rueff, gave a good idea of sixteenth century obstetric practice endowed with a "homely charm", Itagela, "The Birth of Mankynde", pp18-25. Remarkably, it remained a practical work of medical reference well into the 18th century. BM STC Ger p.759. Fairfax Murray Ger II 372. Durling 3981. This edn not in Wellcome or Osler.

        Variarum lectionum libri XV ... accesserunt hac editione hymni sacri, & varia eiusdem auctoris poëmata.

      First edition of Muret's classical commentaries to include the Hymni. The Variae, first published complete in 15 books in 1580, include excerpts from and explanations of both Greek and Latin texts, especially Cicero. A separate title-page introduces the Hymni (verses recited on specific holy days), followed by poems about illustrious contemporaries of Muret's -- e.g., Raphael -- and an index to the previous 15 books. The French humanist Muret (1526-85) has long been recognized as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, and his works were used as a model for students. Greatly admired for his excellent understanding and interpretation of classical texts, he was dubbed "le meilleur orateur du temps" in Italy and France by Montaigne, whom he tutored; and Scaliger mused that Muret "satirised the Ciceronians and at the same time expressed himself in a thoroughly Ciceronian style." LIke most of Muret's published work, these Variae are based on his academic lectures; however the scholar Lambinus accused Muret of plagiarism, and indeed it seems Muret "borrowed" bits from his work without permission. (In retaliation, Lambinus published their personal correspondence.) Muret's personal life was fraught with tribulation stemming from multiple accusations of homosexuality in various cities where he resided. From 1559 till his death, however, he lived in Rome under the protection of at least one cardinal and a pope.The text is in Latin and Greek, printed in roman and italic, with decorative headpieces and floriated initials. A letterpress diagram on p. 547 shows the Greek alphabet corresponding to numerals. Provenance: John Saltar (19th-century adolescent's signature, front pastedown); Henry Johns Gibbons, Rittenhouse (Philadelphia), 1923 (signature, front fly-leaf verso).

        Examen de ingenios para las sciencias: Donde se muestra la differencia de habilidades que ay en los hombres, y el genero de letras que a cada uno responde en particular. Es obra donde el que leyere con atencion hallara la manera de su ingenio, y sabra escoger la sciencia en que mas ha de aprovechar: y si por ventura la huviere ya professado, entenderá si atinó a la que pedia su habilidad natural. Compuesta por el doctor Juan Huarte, natural de S. Juan de pie del Puerto. Al Rey don Phelippe II.

      Valencia: en casa de Pedro de Huete 1580 - (Colofón: Impresso en Valencia, en casa de Pedro de Huete, a la plaza de la yerua, Año de 1580).- // 8º; 5-412, [3] p.; Sign.: A-Z8, Aa-Cc8.- // Encuadernación de la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, en pergamino. A1 (portada) y 2C8 (colofón) reforzados en siglo XIX con pérdida de algunas letras. Papel del cuerpo del libro en muy buen estado. Mínima galería en la parte inferior de págs. 367-403, huyendo de los tipos. Pág. 33-34 un poco desprendida. Pequeña rasgadura en la parte inferior de p. 297. Muy ligeras pérdidas de papel en margen superior de págs. 265-274. Falto de A8 (p. 15-16) con el final del 'prohemio al lector' en una cara y el grabado a la vuelta.- // Proc.: Ex-libris semiarrancado de la Librería de Gabriel Sánchez, calle Carretas, 21, Madrid.- // El "Examen de ingenios" de Huarte, que había sido incluido entre los libros condenados en el Index de Portugal de 1581 (nº 134), fue igualmente recogido en el suyo de 1583 por el arzobispo de Toledo, Gaspar de Quiroga (fo 66). En este caso la condena no suponía la prohibición de su lectura, sino que podía llevarse a cabo a condición de evitar los pasajes cuya censura quedó señalada en el Expurgatorio anejo de 1584 (fos 116-118), que debían ser suprimidos de los ejemplares que circulasen. En 1612, el obispo Sandoval modificó estas censuras, reduciendo algunas, ampliando otras e incluyendo nuevas en su Expurgatorio (p. 590-591). La censura afectó especialmente a las propuestas de Huarte sobre la relación entre el cerebro y el entendimiento, a su análisis sobre el tipo de ingenio que podía atribuirse a Jesucristo y, en definitiva, a todo cuanto pudiese abrir contradicciones con la concepción ortodoxa del alma, para la que el entendimiento era cosa del alma y la constitución y funciones de esta eran cosa de Dios. Se censuró incluso la mención de la anécdota narrada por Galeno sobre su nacimiento, del que su padre le habría contado que en aquel momento el diablo le dijo que el niño tenía que ser médico. Este ejemplar debió ser censurado antes de 1612 puesto que se adecúa a lo determinado en el Expurgatorio de Quiroga, careciendo de las páginas en las que todo el texto estaba prohibido (E8, G6, H4-I2, Cc5-6), que aparecen cortadas, y con las correspondientes tachaduras para ocultar el texto en el resto de los casos. En España sólo localizamos el ejemplar falto de portada de la Biblioteca histórica municipal de Madrid (R/768) y el ejemplar de la Biblioteca de Catalunya (Res 71-12º), bastante deteriorado, que presenta la variante en portada de "Vendese en casa de Miguel Borraz mercader de libros delante de la Diputacion". Fuera de España sólo localizamos otros cuatro ejemplares: Bibliothèque Mazarine (Paris, Francia), Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek (Weimar, Alemania), Hispanic Society of America (New York, EEUU) y Universitätsbibliothek Salzburg (Salzburgo, Austria).- // Refs.: CCPB 000159552-0; Gallardo, 2540; Iriarte, p. 103-4; Palau, aludido en 116485; Rebiun 15760694.

Die Augsburger Konfession (Confessio Augustana) ist die Bekenntnisschrift der Lutheraner, die unter der Federführung von Philipp Melanchthon dem Augsburger Reichstag im Jahre 1530 vorgelegt worden ist. Vorausgegangen war die Frühphase der Reformation. Auf dem Reichstag zu Speyer des Jahres 1526 wurde beschlossen, daß die Religionssache Angelegenheit jedes einzelnen Fürsten oder jeder Stadt sei. Die Sache Luther erfuhr einen ungeheuren Aufschwung. Im Jahre 1529, es war wiederum ein Reichstag zu Speyer, war der katholische Ton außerordentlich scharf. Man forderte die Aufhebung des Beschlusses von 1526 und die Inkraftsetzung der Reichsacht und deren Vollstreckung. Gegen die Veränderung des Reichsabschiedes von 1526 protestierten nun die Lutheraner und forderten ein gemeinsames, freies, christliches Konzil oder eine deutsche Nationalversammlung. Die Geschichte der Protestanten bis zum Reichstag 1530 ist verwickelt: auch unter den Protestanten brachen scharfe Meinungsverschiedenheiten aus. Der wichtigste war der Streit um die Abendmahlslehre (Zwingli). Es folgten eine Reihe von Religionsgesprächen, unter denen das Marburger (1529) wohl das bekannteste ist. Die Augsburger Konfession war die religiöse Überzeugungsschrift, die Kaiser Karl V. und dem Reichstag vorgelegt worden ist. Verfaßt wurde sie von Philipp Melanchthon. Die Zustimmung Luthers ist umstritten, seine Worte: ".weiß nichts daran zu bessern noch zu ändern, würde sich auch nicht schicken, denn ich so sanft und leise nicht treten kann", lassen verschiedene Deutungen zu. Die Confessio Augustana wurde auf dem Reichstag vorgelesen. Es war der 25. Juni 1530, ein Samstag. Gemäß den Vereinbarungen zur Kaiserwahl ("capitulatio" genannt) wurde die Confessio zuerst in deutsch vorgetragen, der Kaiser verstand wahrscheinlich kein Wort. Insgesamt umfaßt die Confessio 28 Artikel des Glaubens und der Lehre. Nach der Verlesung des lateinischen Textes folgten die abweichenden Erklärungen der vier oberrheinischen Städte, die sog. Tetrapolitana; auch Zwingli übersandte sein Glaubensbekenntnis. Die katholische Seite brachte als Antwort auf die Confessio die sog. Confutatio hervor, die am 3. August den Protestanten verlesen wurde. Melanchthon schrieb daraufhin die Apologia Confessionis, die eine theologische Begründung der Confessio Augustana darstellt. Beide, die Confessio und deren Apologia, wurden im Jahre 1531 ediert. Im Jahre 1540 arbeitete Melanchthon die Confessio um: in der überarbeiteten Fass [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Constitutionum Provincialium Tarraconensium Libri Quinque.

      Tarracone, Apud Philippum Mey, 1580. - in-4. 28ff. 411pp. 24ff. Plein vélin souple, titre manuscrit au dos (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage important pour l'histoire de Tarragone, publié par le grand humaniste et historien espagnol Antonio Agustin i Albanell. Né à Saragosse en 1516, Agustin étudia dans les universités d'Alcala de Henares et de Salamanque, puis dans celle de Bologne en Italie. Il fut un éminent jurisconsulte qui se vit confier d'importantes fonctions, dont celle d'auditeur dans la Sacra Rota Romana pour laquelle il avait eu l'appui de l'empereur Charles V. Evêque de Lérida en 1561 il fut nommé en 1576 évêque de Tarragone où il mourut en 1586. Cet ouvrage contient les règles - issues notamment des différents conciles qui avaient eu lieu à Tarragone- qui organisaient la vie sociale et la vie ecclésiastique. Il contient des directives sur les moeurs, l'économie, le commerce, l'alimentation, les sortilèges, les Juifs, les Arabes, etc. "Fruit de la réforme catholique autant que du renouveau des études juridiques, le droit écclésiastique fut également l'objet de publications savantes autant que de commenaires érudits ( ) Les travaux d'Antonio Agustin ne furent pas négligeables à cet égard. Philologue, numismate, historien du droit romain, il apporta à l'étude du droit canonique toutes les ressources de l'humanisme juridique dont il était l'un des meilleurs interprètes. Citons de lui son "Epitome Juris Pontifici" et ses "Constitutionum provincialium Tarraconensium libri quinque (1580), recueil des conciles de Tarragone et des ordonnances des archevêques de cette ville depuis les temps les plus reculés" (Sutto). Rousseurs, assez prononcées aux premiers feuillets. Infime travail de ver dans la marge intérieure de quelques pages, sans atteinte au texte. Bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 59845. Cf. "Antonio Agustín between Renaissance and Counter-Reform" (Londres: The Warburg Institute, 1993). C.

        De Simonia - Contemporary, original manuscript of Francisco Suarez work "De Simonia".

      1580 - ca.1580-1620. 8°. 93 leaves ((2), 188 pages). Hardcover / Original pigskin. Very good condition with only minor split to upper hinge. Some external wear. Faint dampstain to lower margins. The manuscript seems to be either a compendium of excerpts related to Suarez' "De Simonia" or even an outline of the work. While it looks like a personal selection, a summary of chapters of the writer, the irregular corrrespondence of chapters between the manuscript and the finished work, allows us to speculate on this manuscript being a possible draft. The manuscript is quarto sized in contemporary vellum with the title penned on an upper spine compartment and the number 41 at the foot of the spine. The manuscript has a title page stating 'De Simonia' which precedes the 93 leaf treatise and is followed by two leaves of 'Index Capitum, que in hoc continentur tractatu'. The manuscript is in a regular forward sloping scribal hand with between 20 and 25 lines per page. The text is divided into 39 chapters. The Index reads: Index Capitum que in hoc continentur tractatu: I - Quid sit Simonia et uncle dicatur (identical with Chapter I of Suarez' "De Simonia" / II - Affectur divisio Simonie / III - An in peccato simoniae sit tantium malitia contra religionem an etiam contra justitiam (identical with chapter IV of "De Simonia) etc. / XVI An Beneficia Ecclesiastica sint materia Simonia Jure Divina nel Jure Ecclesiastico etc., etc. / Images of the work and the Index on request. [See full text of Francisco Suarez "De Simonia" in "Theologiae Cursus Completus" - by Jacques Paul Migne (Tomus Decimus-Septimus: De Censuris - De Irregularitatibus - De Simonia - De Oratione) Paris, 1841]. Francisco Suárez (5 January 1548 – 25 September 1617) was a Spanish Jesuit priest, philosopher and theologian, one of the leading figures of the School of Salamanca movement, and generally regarded among the greatest scholastics after Thomas Aquinas. His work is considered a turning point in the history of second scholasticism, marking the transition from its Renaissance to its Baroque phasis. His most important philosophical achievements were in metaphysics and the philosophy of law. Suárez may be considered the last eminent representative of mediaeval scholasticism. He adhered to a moderate form of Thomism and developed metaphysics as a systematic enquiry. For Suárez, metaphysics was the science of real essences (and existence); it was mostly concerned with real being rather than conceptual being, and with immaterial rather than with material being. He held (along with earlier scholastics) that essence and existence are the same in the case of God (see ontological argument), but disagreed with Aquinas and others that the essence and existence of finite beings are really distinct. He argued that in fact they are merely conceptually distinct: rather than being really separable, they can only logically be conceived as separate. On the vexed subject of universals, he endeavored to steer a middle course between the realism of Duns Scotus and the nominalism of William of Occam. His position is a little bit closer to nominalism than that of Thomas Aquinas. Sometimes he is classified as a moderate nominalist, but his admitting of objective precision (praecisio obiectiva) ranks him with moderate realists. The only veritable and real unity in the world of existences is the individual; to assert that the universal exists separately ex parte rei would be to reduce individuals to mere accidents of one indivisible form. Suárez maintains that, though the humanity of Socrates does not differ from that of Plato, yet they do not constitute realiter one and the same humanity; there are as many "formal unities" (in this case, humanities) as there are individuals, and these individuals do not constitute a factual, but only an essential or ideal unity ("In such a way, that many individuals, which are said to be of the same nature, are so: only through the operation of the intellect, not through [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Nunc denuo ad exemplum ab ipso authore ante obitum diligentissime recognitum, recusi & editi.

      Wittenberg, 1580. 8vo. (XL),848 p. Overlapping vellum. 18 cm) (Ref: VD16 T 1123; Hoffmann p. 557. Schweiger III p. 328) (Details: 5 thongs laced through cover; short title in ink on the back; woodcut printer's device of Samuel Selfisch on the title: 'Samuel anointing David, behind him lies his harp (Samuel I,16,13), they are depicted within a floral festoon under the eyes of 2 putti, at the feet Samuel and David a shield with a big S.; good quality paper) (Condition: Vellum aged and somewhat soiled; ties gone) (Note: Vitus Winshemius, 1501-1570, or Veit Winsheim, is called after his hometown Windsheim. His original name was Veit Oertel, or ?-rtel. He is also known as Herr Vitus Oerthl von Winssheim. The young man went to Wittenberg to study, and soon caught the attention of Melanchthon and Luther. He was given financial support by his hometown with a grant of 20 gold guilders a year. His appointment to professor of Greek at his university followed in 1541, later he became professor of Medecine too. In 1538 Winsemius' teacher Melanchthon, who praised him for his knowledge and modesty asked him to publish a new revised edition of his Latin Syntax. He later produced mediocre (according to Bursian) translations of several Greek authors. (ADB 43, p. 462/3, also Eckstein p. 621). In 1569 Winsemius published a new translation into Latin of Thucydides. Eleven years later it was published for the 2nd time. His son, who's name was also Veit, who was a jurist, and also a professor in Wittenberg, produced an edition which had been revised by his father shortly before he died in 1570. This edition of 1580 has 2 dedications, the first of the son, and the second of the father, both for August, since 1553 Elector of Sachsen (1526-1586). From the dedications we learn the following, that Winsemius produced the translation near the end of his life, 'in mea decrepita senecta'. 'Vixi hic (Wittenberg) annos iam pene 50', he tells the reader elsewhere in his preface. Winsemius filius proudly tells us that his father was closely connected to monarch August (familiariter notus), and that he published the book on his own expense (meoque sumptu atque impensis). Winsemius senior undertook the translation because he was not satisfied with the already existing translations. They were mutilated and too obscure. He calls Thucydides a great historian, and emphasizes that we must learn from the mistakes and successes of the Greek, so eloquently described. However 'et quidem negari non potest, esse multa perplexa atque intellectu difficilia in libris Thucydidis'. This harshness in diction, strange and oldfashioned syntax and vocabulary deter people from reading the great author, he explains. Winsemius filius wanted to honour the memory of his father with this book. He not only took the trouble of publishing the translaton anew, and on his own expense, but he did so with great care. He hired a first class publisher who could take care of printing with clear printing type, and who knew how to produce a pleasant type page. The son ordered also to buy paper of good quality. VD16 says that this publisher was Matthäus Welack, who was active from 1576 till 1593. How VD16 knows this we could not find. This cannot however be correct. Welack was a busy printer and publisher in Wittemberg, that is true, but the printers' mark on the title is definitely that of the publisher Samuel Selfisch, 1529-1615) (Collation: a-b8, c4; A-3G8)(Photographs on request)

The Index reads: Index Capitum que in hoc continentur tractatu: I - Quid sit Simonia et uncle dicatur (identical with Chapter I of Suarez' "De Simonia" / II - Affectur divisio Simonie / III - An in peccato simoniae sit tantium malitia contra religionem an etiam contra justitiam (identical with chapter IV of "De Simonia) etc. / XVI An Beneficia Ecclesiastica sint materia Simonia Jure Divina nel Jure Ecclesiastico etc., etc. / Images of the work and the Index on request. [See full text of Francisco Suarez "De Simonia" in "Theologiae Cursus Completus" - by Jacques Paul Migne (Tomus Decimus-Septimus: De Censuris - De Irregularitatibus - De Simonia - De Oratione) Paris, 1841]. Francisco Suárez (5 January 1548 ?- 25 September 1617) was a Spanish Jesuit priest, philosopher and theologian, one of the leading figures of the School of Salamanca movement, and generally regarded among the greatest scholastics after Thomas Aquinas. His work is considered a turning point in the history of second scholasticism, marking the transition from its Renaissance to its Baroque phasis. His most important philosophical achievements were in metaphysics and the philosophy of law. Suárez may be considered the last eminent representative of mediaeval scholasticism. He adhered to a moderate form of Thomism and developed metaphysics as a systematic enquiry. For Suárez, metaphysics was the science of real essences (and existence); it was mostly concerned with real being rather than conceptual being, and with immaterial rather than with material being. He held (along with earlier scholastics) that essence and existence are the same in the case of God (see ontological argument), but disagreed with Aquinas and others that the essence and existence of finite beings are really distinct. He argued that in fact they are merely conceptually distinct: rather than being really separable, they can only logically be conceived as separate. On the vexed subject of universals, he endeavored to steer a middle course between the realism of Duns Scotus and the nominalism of William of Occam. His position is a little bit closer to nominalism than that of Thomas Aquinas. Sometimes he is classified as a moderate nominalist, but his admitting of objective precision (praecisio obiectiva) ranks him with moderate realists. The only veritable and real unity in the world of existences is the individual; to assert that the universal exists separately ex parte rei would be to reduce individuals to mere accidents of one indivisible form. Suárez maintains that, though the humanity of Socrates does not differ from that of Plato, yet they do not constitute realiter one and the same humanity; there are as many "formal unities" (in this case, humanities) as there are individuals, and these individuals do not constitute a factual, but only an essential or ideal unity ("In such a way, that many individuals, which are said to be of the same nature, are so: only through the operation of the intellect, not through a substance or essence of things which unites them"). The formal unity, however, is not an arbitrary creation of the mind, but exists "in the nature of the thing, prior [ontologically] to any operation of the intellect". His metaphysical work, giving a remarkable effort of systematisation, is a real history of medieval thought, combining the three schools available at that time: Thomism, Scotism and Nominalism. He is also a deep commentator of Arabic or high medieval works. He enjoyed the reputation of being the greatest metaphysician of his time. He thus founded a school of his own, Suarezianism (...). Suárez made an important classification of being in Disputationes Metaphysicae (1597), which influenced the further development of theology within Catholicism (his fellow Jesuit Pedro da Fonseca having a powerful effect on Protestant Scholastic thought in the 16th and 17th centuries). In the second part of the book, disputations 28-53, Suárez fixes the distinction between ens infinitum (God) and ens finitum (created beings). The first division of being is that between ens infinitum and ens finitum. Instead of dividing being into infinite and finite, it can also be divided into ens a se and ens ab alio, i.e., being that is from itself and being that is from another. A second distinction corresponding to this one:ens necessarium and ens contingens, i.e., necessary being and contingent being. Still another formulation of the distinction is between ens per essentiam and ens per participationem, i.e., being that exists by reason of its essence and being that exists only by participation in a being that exists on its own. A further distinction is between ens increatum and ens creatum, i.e., uncreated being and created, or creaturely, being. A final distinction is between being as actus purus and being as ens potentiale, i.e., being as pure actuality and being as potential being. Suárez decided in favor of the first classification of the being into ens infinitum and ens finitum as the most fundamental, in connection with which he accords the other classifications their due. In theology, Suárez attached himself to the doctrine of Luis Molina, the celebrated Jesuit professor of Évora. Molina tried to reconcile the doctrine of predestination with the freedom of the human will and the predestinarian teachings of the Dominicans by saying that the predestination is consequent upon God's foreknowledge of the free determination of man's will, which is therefore in no way affected by the fact of such predestination. Suárez endeavoured to reconcile this view with the more orthodox doctrines of the efficacy of grace and special election, maintaining that, though all share in an absolutely sufficient grace, there is granted to the elect a grace which is so adapted to their peculiar dispositions and circumstances that they infallibly, though at the same time quite freely, yield themselves to its influence. This mediatizing system was known by the name of "congruism." Here Suárez' main importance stems probably from his work on natural law, and from his arguments concerning positive law and the status of a monarch. In his extensive work Tractatus de legibus ac deo legislatore (reprinted, London, 1679) he is to some extent the precursor of Grotius and Samuel Pufendorf, in making an important distinction between natural law and international law, which he saw as based on custom. Though his method is throughout scholastic, he covers the same ground, and Grotius speaks of him in terms of high respect. The fundamental position of the work is that all legislative as well as all paternal power is derived from God, and that the authority of every law resolves itself into His. Suárez refutes the patriarchal theory of government and the divine right of kings founded upon it---doctrines popular at that time in England and to some extent on the Continent. He argued against the sort of social-contract theory that became dominant among early-modern political philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, but some of his thinking found echoes in the more liberal, Lockean contract theorists. Human beings, argued Suárez, have a social nature bestowed upon them by God, and this includes the potential to make laws. But when a political society is formed, the authority of the state is not of divine but of human origin; therefore, its nature is chosen by the people involved, and their natural legislative power is given to the ruler.[6] Because they gave this power, they have the right to take it back, to revolt against a ruler — but only if the ruler behaves badly towards them, and they're obliged to act moderately and justly. In particular, the people must refrain from killing the ruler, no matter how tyrannical he may have become. If a government is imposed on people, on the other hand, they not only have the right to defend themselves by revolting against it, they are entitled to kill the tyrannical ruler. In 1613, at the instigation of Pope Paul V, Suárez wrote a treatise dedicated to the Christian princes of Europe, entitled Defensio catholicae fidei contra anglicanae sectae errores ("Defense of the Universal Catholic Faith Against the Errors of the Anglican Sect").This was directed against the oath of allegiance which James I required from his subjects. James (himself a talented scholar) caused it to be burned by the common hangman, and forbade its perusal under the 'severest penalties, complaining bitterly to Philip III that he should harbour in his dominions a declared enemy of the throne and majesty of kings. De Incarnatione (1590-1592) De sacramentis (1593-1603) Disputationes metaphysicae (1597) De divina substantia eiusque attributis (1606) De divina praedestinatione et reprobatione (1606) De sanctissimo Trinitatis mysterio (1606) De religione (1608-1625) De legibus (1612) De gratia (1619) De angelis (1620) De opere sex dierum (1621) De anima (1621) De fide, spe et charitate (1622) De ultimo fine hominis (1628) In the 18th century, the Venice edition of Opera Omnia in 23 volumes in folio (1740?-1751) appeared, followed by the Parisian Vivès edition, 26 volumes + 2 volumes of indices (1856?-1861); in 1965 the Vivés edition of the Disputationes Metaphysicae (volls. 25-26) was reprinted by Georg Olms, Hildesheim. From 1597 to 1636 the Disputationes Metaphysicae were published in seventeen editions; no modern edition of Suárez's complete works is yet available and only few of Suárez's Disputations have been translated into English. The contributions of Suarez to metaphysics and theology exerted significant influence over 17th and 18th century scholastic theology among both Roman Catholics and Protestants. Thanks in part to the strength of Suárez's Jesuit order, his Disputationes Metaphysicae was widely taught in the Catholic schools of Spain, Portugal and Italy. It also spread from these schools to many Lutheran universities in Germany, where the text was studied especially by those who favoured Melanchthon rather than Luther's attitude towards philosophy. In a number of seventeenth-century Lutheran universities the Disputationes served as a textbook in philosophy. In a similar way, Suárez had major influence in the Reformed tradition of German and Dutch schools for both metaphysics and law, including international law. His work was highly priased, for example, by Hugo Grotius (1583-1645). His influence is evident in the writings of Bartholomaeus Keckermann (1571?-1609), Clemens Timpler (1563?-1624), Gilbertus Jacchaeus (1578?-1628), Johann Heinrich Alsted (1588?-1638), Antonius Walaeus (1573?-1639), and Johannes Maccovius (Jan Makowski; 1588?-1644), among others.[9] This influence was so pervasive that by 1643 it provoked the Dutch Reformed theologian Jacobus Revius to publish his book-length response: Suarez repurgatus. The views of Suarez upon the human origin of political order, and his defense of tyrannicide emanating from popular dissent were heavily criticized by English philosopher Robert Filmer in his work Patriarcha, Or the Natural Power of Kings. Filmer believed the Calvinists and the Papists like Suarez to be dangerous opponents of divine right monarchy, legitimized by the supremacy of fathers upon their offspring, which Filmer claimed could be traced back to Adam.

        Dictionarvm Pavpervm, Ordine Alphabetico de virtutib(us) et vitijis; continens praeexercitamenta quaedam ad pleniorem doctrinam viam munientia ...

      Bologna: Societatum Typographiae Bonon(iae) [Bolognese Typographic Society], 1580. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+. Thick 8vo (159 x 106 mm). [12], 739pp., [97]. Signatures: +(6); A-3F(8); 3G(2). Roman type (citations in italic), text in ruled borders, shoulder gloss in the margins citing relevant biblical passages, typographic headpieces, title and small woodcut printer?'s device within border of small fleurons. Period Italian vellum over paper boards, manuscript title to spine; (title worn with some faded inscriptions and with ink stamp to verso ?"Ex Libris Augustini Mueller No.,?" somewhat dampstained but sturdy and complete). Final verso inscribed in near contemporary hand in Italian ?"francisco?" and other addenda. Rare first edition of Ridolfi?'s pocket dictionary of virtues and vices, a Franciscan lexical compilation for aspiring young clergy. Rare 1580 first edition of Ridolfi?'s ethical dictionary; another edition printed in Lyon the following year by Tardif. Only a handful of books survive from this Typographic Society press, which was active in Bologna from 1574 to 1581. Pietro Ridolfi, a Franciscan brother, wrote this dictionary of virtues (covering abstinence to vita aeterna) and vices (from adultery to usury) as an aid in the composition of sermons. The Franciscans as a rule are dedicated to the virtues, especially those of humility and poverty, and take these vows when entering the order. As the new orators of the period, Franciscans and Dominicans each inserted mnemonic images into their sermons as a way to aid the recall of both preachers and listeners. The products of such prompts in medieval sermons, which included elaborate verbal images of the virtues and vices, were then allegorized in moral terms and circulated on the continent. Ridolfi?'s dictionary classification proves that verbal images and complicated schema functioned as ?'ordering devices?' for those preaching and listening to sermons, whilst also provoking an affective response that enhanced listeners?' devotional and penitential experiences. The dictionary is prefaced by a 39-chapter introduction on rhetorical style, proper use of sources, and effective thematic manipulation when writing sermons. Each entry includes mass of commentary and Biblical citations. There are three indices, two of subjects and a third of pertinent biblical passages under each of the virtues or vices. Important and extremely scarce lexicon with which the Franciscans came to value imaginative meditation as part of their own spiritual lives. Their habit of meditating on mental images of the virtues and vices eventually spilled out into their sermons. This book located only in Italian institutions. STC 852545.
