        De zeer wonderlijcke ende warachtighe historie van Mahomet. Inde welcke beschreven ende verhaelt wordt zijn gheboorte, afcomste, leven ende valsche leeringhe, mette confutatie oft wederlegginge van den Alcoran ende quade secte des selfs Mahomet [...].

      Antwerp, Guillaem van Parijs, 1580.. 8vo. 149 , (9) ff, with half-page woodcut of Mohammed and his followers on title page and full-page woodcut printer's device on final leaf. 17th century embossed vellum with manuscript title on spine, sprinkled edges.. Extremely rare first edition of this early Dutch "Life of Mohammed", illustrated with a woodcut of the bearded Prophet preaching to three prostrate devotees. Authored anonymously by "G. S.", the work suggests an unusual European interest in the founder of Islam - at a particularly tense moment in relations between the West and the Islamic World, shortly after the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. It is formidably rare, and is not recorded at Anglo-American or German auction in the last 50 years. - As the title suggests, the present work was designed to offer a "very remarkable and true History of Mohammed, in which is described and treated his birth, lineage, life and teachings". Although ostensibly a translation of an earlier 16th century work by the Spanish Muslim-turned-Christian Juan Andres, the "Warachtighe Historie van Mahomet" is in fact a skillful re-working of Andres meant to focus the reader's attention on the central figure of Mohammed, rather than on the religion itself. Comparison of the present text with the Spanish original indicates that it is in fact based only loosely on Andres's text. Instead, the "Warachtighe Historie van Mahomet" presents Mohammed's life in detail before discussing, for example, his status as a prophet and the miracles worked by him. Its dozens of chapter headings, as a glance at the table of contents shows, almost all explicitly center around Mohammed himself: "The Jews of Medina argue against Mohammed"; "Mohammed's Men take the City of Mecca"; "Mohammed comes to the aid of Heraclius against the King of Persia"; etc. The "History of Mohammed" continues through to his illness and death, as well as a few chapters on his successors Abu Bakr and Umar (fol. xc). An overview of the contents of the Quran is also given (fols. xci-xcv), and a lengthy dialogue is reproduced in full between the rabbi Abdias Ben Shalom (subsequently known as Abdallah Ibn Shelem) and Mohammed, who eventually converts the Jew - a passage found at the end of the Quran. Whatever his motives, the composer of the present Dutch "translation" evidently had a remarkably keen interest in the historical personage of Mohammed, and it is the Prophet's life and deeds which become the focus of the narrative. - As Vincente Cantarino notes, "after the middle of the fifteenth century, and as a direct consequence of the Ottoman expansion in eastern Europe, there was a resurgence of the medieval interest in the composition of treatises dealing with and arguing against the religion of Islam" (p. 27). The most important Western work on Islam during this period was undoubtedly Juan Andres's "Confusion de la Secta Mahometica y d'l Alcora". Andres, who had only converted in 1487, was unique among early Christian writers on Islam. "The authority that the author commanded was due in part to the fact that he had been a Muslim alfaqui and had become a priest and a missionary after his conversion to Christianity" (p. 28). Of Andres's early life we know very little: "His father, Abdala, was an alfaqui in the same city. His education was strictly religious and that he seems to have known the Koran well and been familiar with the Sunna, Sira, and Koran commentators" (ibid). To date, Andres's work has received only cursory attention in the relevant literature, and the present "translation" seems so rare that it is virtually unknown to scholars. With its curiously explicit focus on Mohammed, however, this Dutch adaptation reveals much about Northern European attitudes towards a Muslim enemy they had never encountered in the flesh, and is certainly worthy of further scholarly research in itself. - Lengthy closed tear on leaf lxxx not affecting the legibility of the text; otherwise a very good copy, pages clean and fresh. - Chauvin XI, no. 524 (tentatively attributed to Esquivel de Alava).

        Missa... for 8 voices. Manuscript music. Tenor 1 part. Italian, ca. 1600.

      . Large octavo (ca. 240 x 179 mm.). Sewn into early grey wrappers with manuscript titling to upper: "Primus Chorus Tenor Missa binae Tenor Primi Chori a 8." 14 pp. including one ruled page without notation. Notated ink on hand-ruled staves. This work is unrecorded in both Grove and RISM.. Mel, a Flemish composer, was "mainly active in Italy. He was of a landed family whose fortunes were closely linked to the Duchy of Lorraine... After Spain annexed Portugal in 1580 Mel went to Rome, where his name appears in that year on a subscription list for two new bells for the Flemish church, S Maria in Campo Santo. Whether or not he studied composition with Palestrina as Baini claimed, his first published works indicate that he was well acquainted with Palestrina's style. The title- pages and dedications of his printed books show that in addition to his continued allegiance to Lorraine... He enjoyed the friendship and patronage of the Valignani, the Henrici and Cardinal Gabriel Paleotto... Mel was well educated and a prolific composer whose aristocratic lineage and connections seem to have ensured him at least a modest fame. His works have not been edited, and have therefore not received the study they deserve. His sacred pieces show him to have been a craftsman, well trained in Dutch counterpoint and a diligent imitator of the Palestrinian style." Patricia Ann Myers in Grove online

Of special chemical interest is Book X (p. 375-410), comprising one chapter on fire, of which Hoefer (II,95) gives an account, a chapter on distillation with woodcuts of apparatus, and a chapter on chemistry" (Duveen). - "It is a mine of facts, both real and imaginary... Cardano must always be credited with having introduced new ideas that inspired new investigations" (DSB III, 66). - Cardano selbst hat die Entstehung dieses Buches in seinem 'Liber de libris propriis' (Buch der eigenen Bücher) geschildert, und sich beklagt, "daß jemand aus Rache für erlittenen persönlichen Schaden, im Kapitel über die Hexen 'gewisse Wörter' hinzugesetzt habe: Der unbekannte Herausgeber oder erst der Korrektor hat hier der Bezeichnung ihrer aus Venedig vertriebenen Verfolger als raubgierige Wölfe die Marginalie 'Dominicani' beigefügt und noch deutlicher im Register diese als 'dominicani inquisitores, lupi rapaces' bezeichnet. Auf einen Brief hin habe der Autor der vier Wörter gar noch gespottet, was die ihm für Sorgen bereiteten. Und die für ihn gefährliche Ergänzung sei auch in einem vermutlich fingiert in Avignon, wohl in Lyon erschienenen Nachdruck eingegangen. Des verwandten Inhalts wegen fügt er am Schluß von 'De varietate' eine Art Konkordanz zu den 21 Büchern der früher erschienenen Abhandlung 'De subtilitate' bei. Beide Texte stellen Enzyklopädien der Naturwissenschaft von der Kosmologie bis zur Konstruktion von Maschinen, von der Mechanik und Naturwissenschaft bis zur Mystik und Dämonenlehre dar, gemäss, der dualistischen Lehre des Cardanus, nach der eine Urmaterie den Raum erfüllt, in dem die Weltseele, gegenwärtig in allem Körperlichen, als Kraft der Sympathie und Antipathie wirkt und als Licht und Wärme erscheint, mit einem allbeseelten Kosmos, in den der Mensch sich einzuordnen hat, in dem die Religion Staat und Gesetze sanktioniert" (Hieronymus 350). - Durchgehend gleichmäßig gering gebräunt, insgesamt gut erhalten. Titel mit zwei kleinen alten Besitzvermerken.

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

      ca.1580-1620.. 8°. 93 leaves ((2), 188 pages). 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, prior to its printing. 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 Suarez (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. Suarez 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 Suarez, 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. Suarez 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 (...). Suarez 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, Suarez 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. Suarez 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, Suarez attached himself to the doctrine of Luis Molina, the celebrated Jesuit professor of Evora. 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. Suarez 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 Suarez' 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. Suarez 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 Suarez, 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, Suarez 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 bi...

Die Formula concordiae, auch nach der Revision im Kloster Bergen als das "Bergische Buch" bekannt, gilt als die letzte symbolische Schrift der reformierten Kirche Luthers. Sie war im Jahre 1577 auf Veranlassung des Kurfürsten August von Sachsen entstanden und sollte endgültig die Streitereien schlichten, die zwischen den Anhängern Luthers in Niedersachsen und Schwaben nach dessen Tode 1546 schwelten. "Um die endlosen Streitigkeiten der lutherischen Theologen beizulegen, veranlasste Kurfürst August von Sachsen mit Vorwissen der vornehmsten protestantischen Fürsten 1576 zu Torgau einen Theologenkonvent, auf dem Andreä, Chemnitz, Chyträus, Musculus, Selnecker und andere eine Einigungsformel aufsetzten, das sogenannte Torgische Buch. Da gegen dieses Buch von verschiedenen Seiten Einspruch erhoben wurde, ließ es Kurfürst August durch die vorgenannten Theologen 1577 im Kloster Bergen bei Magdeburg revidieren. So entstand das Bergische Buch, auch Konkordienformel genannt, welches ... 1580 zu Dresden veröffentlicht wurde" (LThK II, 116). Die Kursächsischen Pfarrer wurden gezwungen, ihr Bekenntnis zur Konkordienformel abzulegen: "Schreibt, lieber Herre, schreibt, dass Ihr bei der Pfarre bleibt." Am Schluss u. a.

        De la demonomanie des sorciers.

      Paris, J. du Puys, 1580. 4to. Recently bound in an absolutely magnificent pastiche-binding, perfectly mimicking a sumptuous late 16th century French gift-binding, of olive-green full morocco with elaborately gilt spine, magnificently gilt boards (gilding consisting in leaves and branches). All edges gilt. Front end-paper with presentation-inscription pasted down, worn at edges, just shaving the top of the first letter of the inscription. A few neat repairs to first few leaves and corner of last leaf - all far from affecting text. A very nice and clean copy. Contemporary marginal notes (by Varroni, the presentee?). Woodcut title-vignette, woodcut headpieces, woodcut end-vignette, and a few woodcut initials. (14), 252 (recte: 256) ff.. Scarce first edition, presentation-copy, of Bodin's seminal "Demon-Mania", the most important book on witchcraft of the era. The work profoundly influenced the position on witchcraft of the following half century and directly influenced the course of witch trials of this period. The work is furthermore of fundamental importance to the understanding of Bodin's tripartite world picture and constitutes an invaluable supplement to his "Six livres de la république".With a presentation-inscription, in Latin, in contemporary hand, to the pasted-down front end-paper, noting that Bodin gave this copy to a government official, Varroni, in Northern France: "Cl. Varroni reg. consiliario urbis Alaunae Veromanduor, metropoleos I. Bodinus D.D." (D.D. = Dono Dedit = "gave this gift"). "Jean Bodin's "On the Demon-Mania of Witches" (De la démonomanie des sorciers) appeared in 1580 and rapidly became a major publishing success. It underwent at least twenty-three editions and was translated from its original French into German, Italian and Latin. It was surely the most published work of the era on the subject of demons and witches. Because of its wide distribution, it has been considered by generations of historians to have been an extremely influential book, responsible in itself for large-scale prosecutions of witches in the four or five decades following its appearance." (Pearl, p. 9).The present first edition constitutes not only the original version of the work, but also the model for all French editions that followed (as well as the later translations) - as many as 11 between 1581 and 1616. Bodin edited an edition in 1587, which contained some additions; that edition is considered very flawed, however, and no subsequent editions were based upon it. Jean Bodin (1529/30 - 1596), "one of the towering figures in the history of French thought" (Scott), was a lawyer, economist, natural philosopher, historian, and one of the major political theorists of the sixteenth century. His main work, the "Six livres de la république" is one of the most important works of modern political thought. Here Bodin gave the first systematic statement of sovereignty and coined the term "political science". With his theory of the State and statement of Sovereignty, he fundamentally changed the history of political thought in the West. The "Six livres de la république" is Bodin's most famous and frequently read work. Due to the seemingly "supernatural" contents of the "Démonomanie", scholars have had difficulties recognizing the Bodin of the "Six livres" in this work, which, within its domain, was just as influential. There has been, however, increasing recognition of the political contents of the "Démonomanie", and a tendency towards reconciliation of the great works by this towering figure of early modern French thought. First of all, the work is written with the same impressive thoroughness and style as Bodin's other works. Second, although based upon a concrete sorcery case, the "Démonomanie" is of the utmost importance to the understanding of Bodin't tripartite world picture and his attempts at maintaining a clear line of separation between the world of nature and the supernatural. His monumental conception of "Theatrum Naturae" is just as dominant as a thematical background in his "Démonomanie" as it is in his "Six livres" and there ought to be no doubt about the fact that the basic features of his system of thought are dominant in the present work, which due to its concrete matter of investigation is all the more interesting. In fact, the "Démonomanie" is now considered an invaluable source for the general thought of the great political thinker. With its two-fold turn of focus on social problems and questions of natural-philosophical and theological character, the "Démonomanie", in accordance with Bodin's scientific plan of life, marks the transition from "human sciences" to "the science of natural and divine things". "Contrary to the judgment of the Enlightenment thinkers, this midway-position does not reduce its value in the Bodin corpus; on the contrary: Precisely this work is suitable for clarifying and illustrating the unity of his works." (Own translation from the German. Lange, p. 162). Concerning himself with witchcraft and demonology, which is what Bodin does in the present work, we here find an emphasized statement of his thoughts on women, on punishing and sentencing, and on the general threats of state and society. Having experienced severe criticism of his earlier works, Bodin's critics became more serious and dangerous with regard to his "Démonimanie". In his letter of dedication (December 20, 1579) to Christophle de Thou, the first president of the Parlement of Paris, Bodin explained his motives for writing the work. "First, he hoped to denounce the mania, the spiritual errors, and distraction, as well as the "fury" that sorcerers possess as they "chase after the devil." He wrote this treaty with two purposes in mind: on the one hand, "to use it as a warning to all who will see him [the devil]," and on the other hand, "to alert readers that there is no crime that could be more atrocious or deserve more serious punishment." Bodin wished to speak out against those who "try by all means to rescue the sorcerers through printed books." He reminded all that "Satan has men in his grasp who write, publish, and speak claiming that nothing that is said about sorcerers is true." It was essential to provide the tools to magistrates and judges, who were confronted by the accused sorcerers, in order to face this formidable problem. The work was bold and perilous for its author. Many wondered if Bodin, so curious about this topic, such an expert, so convinced of the devil's existence, may not himself have been involved with witchcraft. These suspicions alarmed the authorities, and on June 3, 1587, the general prosecutor to the Parlement of Paris ordered the general lieutenant of the baillage of Laon to proceed with a search of Bodin's home, on suspicion of witchcraft. This inspection brought no results due to the intervention of eight prominent citizens and two priests who registered their support of Bodin." (SEP)."The conclusions of the proceedings against a witch, to which I was summoned on the last day of April, 1578, gave me occasion to take up my pen in order to throw some light on the subject of witches, which seems marvelously strange to everyone and unbelievable to many... And because there were some who found the case strange and almost unbelievable, I decided to write this treatise which I have entitled "The Demon-Mania of Witches", on account of the madness which makes them chase after devils: to serve as a warning to all those who read it, in order to make it clearly known that there are no crimes which are nearly as vile as this one, or which deserve more serious penealties. Also partly to respond to those who in printed books try to save witches by every means, so that it seems Satan has inspired them and drawn them to his line in order to publish these fine books." (Bodin's Preface).A feature which clearly distinguishes Bodin's theories on witchcraft from late medieval and early Renaissance demonology is his struggle against skepticism, and the gender strategies that he deploys in the present work to thwart Skeptics, constitute a central feature of his modern demonology - a demonology that came to be dominating for more than half a century. The "Démonomanie" is a work designed to update a vast corpus concerned with the identification and punishment of witches. It provides us quite clearly with Bodin's thoughts on divinity, punishment, practice of law, and not least on women - women in general and women in society. "[W]omen generally serve as means to an end in Bodin's thought. The wife's natural inferiority to the husband provides an analogy for a nonreciprocal relation of command and obedience that he establishes between the sovereign and his subjects in "De la république". In "De la démonomanie", Bodin's portrayal of women as the possessors of unsavory secrets and his characterization of the confessions of witches as fragments of a grandly devilish design create the need for hermeneutical expertise - expertise that he claimed to have. In using women to "think with", the author of "De la démonomanie" had much in common with his opponent, the Lutharen physician Johann Weyer, who protested against the witch trials in "De praestigiis daemonum" (1563)." (Wilkin p. 53).An important part of Bodin's defence of the existence of witchcraft lies in the latter part of the present work, namely the pages 218-252, which constitute the famous refutation of the opinions of Johann Weyer ("Refutation des opinions de Jean Wier"). In his "De praestigiis daemonum" from 1563, Weyer had argued that that which we call witchcraft is actually manifestations caused by mental illness of the women in question. It is interesting to see how much Bodin actually drew on Weyer, while at the same time attacking him on both scholarly and legal grounds. As the thorough and classically bred scholar that he was, he cited both classical, Arab, and Christian authorities on witchcraft against Weyer. He arrays the authority of all philosophers, prophets, theologians, lawgivers, jurists, rulers, etc. Ultimately, Bodin here became the first to challenge Weyer's denial of the right to judge and punish the mentally ill, making the work of foundational importance to the following development of legal theory specifically targeted on the punishment of insane men and women. "As a major Renaissance scholar, Bodin based his work on an extensive and varied group of sources. He depended heavily on the Old Testament, classical and patristic authorities and a large number of medieval scholastic works. He was immersed in the late medieval legal and canon law traditions. He also cited a large number of recent and contemporary texts like the "Malleus meleficarum", as well as accounts told by friends and acquaintances. Interestingly, while Bodin condemned the work of Johann Weyer, he mined this book for anecdotes and accounts when they could be useful." (Pearl).The refutation of Weyer shows Bodin as a formidable controversialist. The reason why the "Démonomanie" is published two years after the trial of Jeanne Harvillier, which is constitutes the concrete basis of the work, is that Bodin needed time to carefully prepare the most effective resonse to Weyer's works and attach it to his own. Bodin seeks total demolishment of his opponent - and, as time will tell, he succeeds. Despite some modern disciples, Weyer's position was largely traditional. His aim is not to deny the existence of Satan, nor of satanic practitioners, but rather to contend that those suspected of witchcraft are delusional and victims of mental illness. "Weyer's characterization of women replicated the views of the "Malleus Maleficarum" (1487), or "witches hammer", one of the first and certainly the most influential manual for identifying and prosecuting witches... Weyer draws from the same sources as Kramer to argue that women cannot be held accountable for the crimes for which they stand accused and to which they often confess... Vying with the author of the "Malleus", weyer inscribes in etymology the correspondence between the soft female body and her persuasive mind... Weyer's portrayal of women diverges from that of Kramer only in his assessment of the witch's responsibility." (Wilkin, pp. 13-14)."The essentially melancholic imagination of women, he argues, makes them incapable of the sense perception to which he assigned pride of place in the search for truth. The madness with which Weyer diagnosed witches thus masked the contradiction that vitiated his plea. Identifying the susceptibility to demonic illusion as a feminine trait was to compartmentalize it, to limit implicitly the damage that the Devil could inflict elsewhere - for instance, on the perception of learned physicians. Those who refuted "De praestigiis daemonum" rejected the hermeneutical advantage that Weyer claimed for himself. To the gender strategy by which he claimed his advantage, however, they did not object. Weyer's vociferous adversary, Jean Bodin, decried the physician's medical diagnosis of witches; nevertheless, he called upon woman to embody his opposing hermeneutics. The phenomenon that Clark has felicitously termed "thinking with demons" was thus, I argue, inseparable from another thought process: "Thinking with women"." (Wilkin, pp. 9-10).The "Démonomanie" also constitutes a seminal exercise in jurisprudence, which came to set the standard for following decades. Bodin's aim was not only to make sure that witches were judged and punished, he also aimed at fair trial rules according to principles of law developed over centuries in the secular and ecclesiastical courts. Also in this way, the work differs profoundly from other works on demonology and witchcraft and shows us the author as a profound political and legal thinker, whose aim was to alter society for the better. Because this interesting work places itself amidst the divine and the earthly, between the supernatural and the natural, we find in it a wealth of themes that go beyond the actual witch trial with which Bodin begins his work. It is also for these reasons that the work provides us with an even more thorough knowledge of the foundational thoughts of the great legal and political thinker that is the author.

In addition to reprinting Rastell's preface to the first edition, this edition includes several tables and a table showing the assize circuits and justices for 23 Eliz.

The Civitates Orbis Terrarum - Cities of the whole World - was one of the best-selling works of the late sixteenth-century. It was a monumental work completed over 45 years between 1572 and 1617. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first printed views of many towns). Braun wrote the text and Ortelius - who travelled with the artist Joris Hoefnagel - supplied much of the material, which was then engraved by Novellus and Hogenburg. There were a number of editions, mostly with Latin text, but it is extremely difficult (and as Koeman says ‘of secondary importance’) to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates and their number and order does not vary.

        Tiburtum vulgo Tivoli

      Cologne, c. 1580. Map. Copper engraving, platemark 33.5 x 45.5 cms, fine original hand-colour, German text on verso. The Civitates Orbis Terrarum - Cities of the whole World - was one of the best-selling works of the late sixteenth-century. It was a monumental work completed over 45 years between 1572 and 1617. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first printed views of many towns).

There were a number of editions, mostly with Latin text, but it is extremely difficult (and as Koeman says ‘of secondary importance’) to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates and their number and order does not vary. One of the remarkable things about the Civitates is that the town views and plans were taken from eye-witness observation rather than improvised in the manner of earlier geographical works - one thinks of the many spurious 'views' in the famous Nuremberg Chronicles for example - and the little group walking down the steep path in the foreground is often taken to be a form of self portrait, showing Hoefnagel and Ortelius themselves, whose visit to Tivoli in 1578 is recored in the legend, bottom left. The inset shows the impressive waterfall just outside the town.

        Parma/Siena/Palermo/Drepanum (Trapani)

      Cologne, c. 1580. Map. 37 x 47.5 cms. Four views on one sheet, fine original colour, a couple of trivial spots and stains. German text to verso. The Civitates Orbis Terrarum - Cities of the whole World - was one of the best-selling works of the late sixteenth-century. It was a monumental work completed over 45 years between 1572 and 1617. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first printed views of many towns). Braun wrote the text and Ortelius - who travelled with the artist Joris Hoefnagel - supplied much of the material, which was then engraved by Novellus and Hogenburg. There were a number of editions, mostly with Latin text, but it is extremely difficult (and as Koeman says ‘of secondary importance’) to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates and their number and order does not vary.

        Dialogo en Laude de la Mugeres Intitulado GINAECEPAENOS

      Milan: Michel Tini, 1580. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (8) ff., including woodcut author portrait in elaborate frame on verso of title, [1]-103 [ie 107] ff., (4) ff. [Index], without final blank. Bound in black crushed morocco signed &#39;Brugalla 1946&#39; on inner dentelle. Gilt emblem and two ex libri of Isidor Fernandez on front end pastedown. A well washed copy. Lower edge of title re-margined, without loss; a few places where washing has made ink bleed, a few others with one or two letters replaced in facsimile (see 29, 74, 99.) Rare first and sole edition of this Spanish &#39;defence&#39; of Early Modern women, flying in the face of traditional Spanish conservativism, with its theologically based penchant for misogyny. Writing against the traditional approach to women as inherently corrupt and corrupting, Espinosa here cautiously offers alternative theses to dismiss many allegations against the women, as well as pointing out the numerous instances in which females do display virtue, and even &#39;competence in government&#39;. Espinosa&#39;s treatise is structured as a Platonic dialogue between two earnest young men, Philodoxo and Philalithes. Upset by his wife&#39;s delivery of a baby girl, Philodoxo rails against all women, accusing them of causing wars, deceiving their husbands, and being inferior to men in both strength and intelligence. It is up to Philalithes to enlighten his friend, refuting him on several historical points and giving positive examples of the piety, prudence, and learning of women. However, the author remains cautious and continues to retail a certain amount of traditional prejudice : Philalithes is careful throughout the work to warn his companion against all manner of masked women, wandering women, acquisitive women, and indeed good-looking older women. "During the period of the Counter-Reformation, people formulated their questions about women and men according to this view of God&#39;s order. Those two young men in Espinosa&#39;s Dialogo spoke for many as they focused on the distinction between good and evil women. Far more than mere idle chatter about women, their conversation epitomized the significance of gender for this period. They never doubted that the evil woman could undermine an entire social order, God willing or not." (Perry, Gender and Disorder in Early Modern Seville, p. 177) Some of Espinosa&#39;s polemical methods are certainly questionable - for example, rather than singling out women as the sole perpetrators of evil acts, he presents to readers a full catalogue of barbaric atrocities committed by men as well! These are rather interesting for including a wide, and indeed international variety of ethnographic subjects: the cannibals of Guatemala, the &#39;pados&#39; of the East Indies, the Caribes, and the human sacrifices of the Mexicans (ff. 18-19) are all held up as cultural reference points for the contemporary European. Espinosa&#39;s exotic examples crop up throughout his work and have been noted with interest by recent commentators; his chief source seems to have been Oviedo. Espinosa&#39;s work appears to be among the first, if not the first, published treatise promoting women&#39;s status in the Spanish language - characteristically the last place to adopt any modernizing reforms in Early Modern Europe. We are aware of two further treatises following Espinosa&#39;s 1580 work: the Varia historia de illustres mujeres of Perez de Moya (1583), and the Tratado en loor de las mujeres by Cristobal de Acosta (1592). OCLC locates 3 US copies (Berkeley, Newberry, S. Florida). We have also located a copy at the Hispanic Society. The work has been the subject of much modern interest, eliciting several reprints since the late 19th century. * EDIT 16 CNCE 18293; Palau 82, 723; Brunet .492; Gay I.895; Penny, HSA, p. 190.

Contemporary paneled calf with corner fleurons enclosing large blind-stamped central arabesques flanked with the initials L B, rebacked, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, faint early hand-lettered title to edges of text block, endpapers renewed. A few scuffs to boards, some rubbing to extremities with some wear to edges, corners bumped and rather worn, hinges partially cracked. Title page printed within attractive woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials. Light toning to text, faint dampstaining and worming to margins of some leaves, some soiling to title page. Owner signature (of John Hawley dated 1644) to foot of title page, brief annotations to a few leaves. An appealing copy. * Later edition, one of two issued by Tottell in 1580. A selection of reports for 1-50 Edward III (1327-1377), the Book of Assizes, is one of the most important of the Year Books and of unique value to the study of English legal history. As Stanley Milsom has observed, it is the "only collection of reports from the country," that is the only collection of reports from the justices on assize (circuit) rather than in the central courts at Westminster. It is therefore "rich in apparent curiosities" because "it reports processes we do not otherwise see, on circuit, before juries." The first edition was printed in 1514 by John Rastell. OCLC locates 5 copies of the 1580 edition in North American law libraries (Boston College, Harvard, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania).

Avec plusieurs autres excellens secrets des choses naturelles...Le Tout dressé par Dialogues, lesquels sont introduits la theorique & la practique

      8 p.l., 361, [23] pp. Small 8vo, cont. flexible vellum, ties gone. Paris: Martin le Jeune, 1580. First edition, and a splendid pure copy in its first binding, of a rare and important book in the history of chemistry, hydrology, geology, agriculture, etc., etc. Palissy (ca. 1509-89), who is best known for his discovery of the secret of enamelling pottery, was far in advance of his time in scientific ideas. The "Discours admirables, probably incorporates Palissy&#39;s Paris lectures. with an impressive array of subjects: agriculture, alchemy, botany, ceramics, embalming, engineering, geology, hydrology, medicine, metallurgy, meteorology, mineralogy, paleontology, philosophy, physics, toxicology, and zoology. The book is divided into several chapters, the first and longest of which is concerned with water. The others take up metals and their nature and generation; drugs; ice; different types of salts and their nature, effects, and methods of generation; characteristics of common and precious stones; clay and marl; and the potter&#39;s art... "Palissy&#39;s views on hydrology and paleontology, as expressed in the Discours, are of particular interest. He was one of the few men of his century to have a correct notion of the origins of rivers and streams, and he stated it forcefully, denying categorically that rivers can have any source other than rainfall... "Palissy discussed fossils extensively...[He] held other advanced views. From experimentation he concluded that all minerals with geometric crystal forms must have crystallized in water; his classification of salts was nearly correct; and he suggested the concept of superposition for the development of sedimentary rocks... "Palissy was probably one of the first men in France to teach natural sciences from facts, specimens and demonstrations rather than hypotheses."-D.S.B., X, pp. 280-81. In the eighth section, Palissy investigated the hardness and properties of gems and precious stones. The Discours was written in the form of a dialogue between "Theory" and "Practice" and it is always "Practice" that instructs "Theory." A fine copy in its first binding, preserved in a box. Contemporary signature on title of "G. Passart" (maybe) and with a number of knowledgeable contemporary notes in many margins. This book is extremely rare; Ferguson acquired his copy, now in the University of Glasgow, after years of searching and has written on the flyleaf: "At last, after long, long waiting and watching." It is one of the very few books in Denis Duveen&#39;s collection of which he reproduced the title-page in his Bibliotheca Alchemica et Chemica. &#10087; Adams, The Birth and Development of the Geological Sciences, pp. 90, 261, & 446-48.

        La pesca delle perle

      Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium Di ritorno ad Anversa dal suo lungo viaggio in Italia, lo Stradano conobbe Philip Galle, già allievo di Hieronimus Cock e da poco dedito all?arte dell?editoria. I due proggettarano la produzione di una serie di soggetti venatori, ispirati agli arazzi della villa di Poggio a Caiano. Il Galle all?inizio diede alla luce una serie di incisioni senza numerazione, alla quale fece seguita una seconda stesura composta da frontespizio e 44 tavole numerate. La fortuna immediata dell?opera convinse l?editore a proseguire la collaborazione con lo Stradano che venne così impeganto nell?esecuzione di nuovi disegni, con temi venatori esotici ed inusuali. Questo nuovo ciclo fu dapprima pubblicato separatamente, ed in seguito unito al precedente, costituendo al vasta serie di 104 tavole, intitolata appunto Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium, Pugnae. La serie è databile tra il 1578 (data sul frontespizio) e 1596. Come già gli arazzi della villa di Poggio a Caiano, l?opera è raggruppata per argomenti suddivisi in tre vaste categorie: animali terrestri, d?aria e d?acqua. All?inizio le scene di caccia furono incise dallo stesso Philip Galle che successivamente impiegò altri membri della sua famiglia ed assistenti vari quali Adriaen e Jan Collaert, Theodor e Cornelis Galle e Carolus de Mallery. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, leggeri segni di usura nell?angolo inferiore destro di alcune tavole, piccoli interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni circa 256x201. Hollstein VII p. 81, 528-567; A. Baroni Vannucci, pp. 371 ? 389. Once back in Antwerp, after a long trip to Italy, Stradano met Philip Galle, former pupil of Hieronumus Cock, who had recentely devouted himself to the art of printing. They planned together the realization of hunting subjects, inspired by the tapestry of the Villa in Poggio a Caiano. At the beginning, Galle realized a series of engravings without numbers, to which a second edition followed, with title page and 44 numbered plates. The sudden fame of his work convinced the printer to go on with his cooperation with Stradano, who realized new drawings with uncommon and exotic hunting subjects. The new series was published first separately, then together with the first edition, forming a wide series of 104 plates, named Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium, Pugnae. This work can be dated between 1578 (on the front page) and 1596. As for the tapestry of the Villa in Poggio a Caiano, the work is divided in three wide categories: terrestrial, air and water animals. At the beginning the hunting scenes have been engraved by Philip Galle himself, who then hired other members of his family and other assistants, among which Adriaen and Jan Collaert, Theodor and Cornelis Galle and Carolus de Mallery. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, light signs of wear on lower right conrner of some of the plates, small repairs perfectly executed, in general in good condition. Dimensions circa 256x201. Hollstein VII p. 81, 528-567; A. Baroni Vannucci, pp. 371 ? 389. Baroni Vannucci 93
