        SEPAN quantos esta carta vieren, como yo [...]

      Mexico, 1585 Extraordinary 16th-century Mexican carta de poder, or power of attorney, most probably printed by the bookseller/printer from Salamanca, Pedro Balli. Undated, but likely produced between 1574 and 1599, Balli's fluorit. Headed by an impressive historiated initial unrecorded by Carpenter, the unused, 37-line document---uttered in a single sentence---is a precise snapshot of the forensic workings of Mexican society of the period, and is surprisingly similar in text and tone to the modern American instrument. 16th-century Mexican printing is vanishingly rare in the trade, legal material especially so. No other copies known, either in libraries or bibliographies. Folio broadside, worn at edges. Paper toned. Dampstaining. Two closed horizontal tears, touching printing, without loss. Provenance: Dr. Michael W. Mathes.

        Prima parte delle novelle di Ascanio De'Mori da Ceno.

      Mantova: Per Francesco Osanna, 1585. 4to (20.5 cm, 8"). [8], 139, [1] pp. Uncommon first edition: Short stories from a military man turned scholar, known for his Giuoco Piacevole. Kraus aptly notes the "novellae [sic] follow the example of Masuccio and Bandello, in that each is dedicated to a famous personage — and offers moral reflections on the examples provided by the stories, which combine historical facts with romantic fantasy," although the Enciclopedia italiana (online) remarks dryly that some of the subjects "avuto migliore vita artistica da altri scrittori." While the title claims this is a "Prima parte," no more were printed, and indeed these stories were not reprinted until the 18th century.    An artful production, the text is printed in single columns using roman and italic type with head- and tailpieces, decorative initials, small in-text decorations, and a sizable printer's device on the title-page incorporating the phrase "virtute et labore."    Provenance: Small signature in ink of J.E. McKinley, M.D., on title-page along top edge; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         Kraus, Italia, 192; EDIT16 CNCE 47029; Brunet, III, 1904; Graesse, Trésor de Livres Rares, IV, p. 608. Not in Adams. 20th-century full calf, spine with raised bands double-ruled in gilt with daisy stamps in compartments, covers framed in gilt double-fillets, all edges gilt; spine gently sunned. Light age-toning and staining with the occasional spot; of several different paper stocks with a few uneven fore-edges and later repairs. Provenance markings as above. => Attractive.

        L. Annaeus Seneca A. M. Antonio Mureto correctus et notis illustratus ad Matthaeum Contarellum TT. S. Stephani in Monte Caelio S. R. E. Presb.

      Bartholomaeum Grassium, Rome 1585 - A very handsome copy of this elusive early printed edition of the great Roman Stoic philosopher and statesman Seneca; dating back to 1585, the last work edited by the great Christian humanist Antoine Muret, a copy with good provenance with a Chatsworth bookplate, (even showing shelving information) it also has the coronet and D for the Duke of Devonshire in gilt on the spine, from the famed Chatsworth House library collections of the Dukes of Devonshire. This rare 1585 Muret edition of Seneca was recently studied by the Warburg Institute scholar Jill Kraye [see "The Humanist as Moral Philosopher: Marc-Antoine Muret’s 1585 Edition of Seneca"], who sees it as a yet understudied but key link between the two other important humanist editions of Seneca, the Erasmus edition and the later Lipsius edition. WorldCat (OCLC) lists only 24 copies of this edition worldwide, held at libraries such as Harvard, Yale, the Folger Library and Oxford. It is a handsomely printed edition, a folio, finely rebound with leather spine and gilt lettering; a large full page finely engraved portrait of the famous editor, as well as an engraved printer’s device with a double-headed eagle, and some handsome engraved initials and head and tail pieces. The spine separated into six compartments by five raised bands; title, author and date in gilt. 531pp. (with some numbering irregularities as called for in bibliographies, i.e.on the opposite (verso) side of 509 the page number is 610, on to 615, the opposite side of which is 516 etc, text continuous and correct.], 8 unnumbered pages in the front comprising prefatory material and engraved portrait, 18 unnumbered pages at end, including index. A few old and very faded ink notations in the margin in an early hand, otherwise clean and unmarked. The title page is somewhat worn, appears to have been strengthened and slightly trimmed, page 1 with small corner torn, pages show only minor age-toning. Seneca, the great stern Stoic, needs little introduction to students of ancient Rome; he was one of the greatest Roman Stoic philosophers, who had immense influence in Roman and Medieval history. His works were copied by monks and scribes, and survived to influence Europeans in the Renaissance and early modern period as well as Americans during independence; recently, his works have achieved new prominence. Seneca, or Lucius Annaeus Seneca (often known simply as Seneca, or Seneca the Younger) was born around 4 BC in the Roman province of Spain, he died in AD 65. He was known sometimes as a Middle Stoic, combining elements of Stoicism, Cynicism and Epicureanism in a classic Roman mixture. Seneca wrote clearly and brilliantly about ethics, moral education, psychology and natural philosophy. For eight years he served as an advisor to the Emperor Nero, and attempted to guide his government according to Stoic ideals. The early Christian church believed that he had known Saint Paul and therefore granted his works legitimacy and preserved them. Seneca also inspired early Americans, including John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who praised him as a fine moralist and as an example to the new Republic. Seneca died as bravely as his Stoic ethics commanded -- ordered by Nero who suspected him (wrongly) of treason, he severed several veins, immersed himself in warm bath, and surrounded by friends, calmly died. The editor, Antoine Muret (Latinized Muretus) was one of the most important Renaissance Christian humanists. He was known by many as Europe’s best Latinist -- he only spoke Latin in public orations, and served the French king in that capacity before going to Rome. He was also praised as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, hence this careful scholarly edition of Seneca which has been praised for its accuracy and understanding of the Latin complexities of the great and eloquent Roman philosopher. Overall a fine and very rare edition of the great Roman Stoic, in an important Renaissance edition from a great classical schol [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Examen du livre des recreations mathematiques.Rouen, Charles Osmont, 1643, 8vo. With numerous woodcut illustrations illustrating the problems. Contemporary limp vellum.

      Worldcat (1 copy); for Mydorge: DSB IX, pp. 598-599; Hattab, Descartes on forms and mechanisms, pp. 90-92; Thorndike VII, pp. 593-594. Very rare fourth edition of the commentary of Claude Mydorge (1585-1647) on the Récreations mathématiques by "H. van Etten" (Jean Leurechon). Mydorge corrected the numerous mistakes made by Leurechon in these mathematical diversions and "added several physical experiments… as well as comments that he claimed were intended only for his friends". Several of examples and comments by Mydorge, also appear in the works of his friend Descartes, making it "reasonable to conclude that many of the other mechanical problems discussed by Mydorge in this work were also known to Descartes… and one can easily imagine Descartes as one of the friends participating in the discussions of these problems alluded to in the prefatory remarks" (Hattab).The "diversions" consist of numerous problems for which a mathematical solution is presented, most of them illustrated by a woodcut. For instance, Mydorge (following Leurechon) informs the reader how to make water in a glass boil without fire, "to make a door open from both sides; … to build a bridge all round the earth which will not fall when its supports are removed; to keep all the water in the world in the air without a single drop falling to earth". The third chapter, on fireworks, contains even more spectacular problems, such as "if all the gunpowder in the world were put in a globe of glass or paper and set on fire all at once, what would happen? Nothing, since the pressure would be equal in every direction" (Thorndike).Binding soiled and spine with a few holes; lower part loose in binding. First 50 pages creased; several marks and thumbing throughout. A fair, probably well-used copy.

He is best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. He is renowned to the present day as the cartographer who created a world map based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. In his own day he was the world's most famous geographer but in addition he had interests in theology, philosophy, history, mathematics and magnetism as well as being an accomplished engraver, calligrapher and maker of globes and scientific instruments. He wrote few books but much of his knowledge is to be found in the copious legends on his wall maps and the prefaces that he composed for his atlas ,the first in which the term "atlas" appears and the sections within it.

        Examen du livre des recreations mathematiques.Rouen, Charles Osmont, 1643, 8vo. With numerous woodcut illustrations illustrating the problems. Contemporary limp vellum.

      - Worldcat (1 copy); for Mydorge: DSB IX, pp. 598-599; Hattab, Descartes on forms and mechanisms, pp. 90-92; Thorndike VII, pp. 593-594. Very rare fourth edition of the commentary of Claude Mydorge (1585-1647) on the Récreations mathématiques by "H. van Etten" (Jean Leurechon). Mydorge corrected the numerous mistakes made by Leurechon in these mathematical diversions and "added several physical experiments as well as comments that he claimed were intended only for his friends". Several of examples and comments by Mydorge, also appear in the works of his friend Descartes, making it "reasonable to conclude that many of the other mechanical problems discussed by Mydorge in this work were also known to Descartes and one can easily imagine Descartes as one of the friends participating in the discussions of these problems alluded to in the prefatory remarks" (Hattab).The "diversions" consist of numerous problems for which a mathematical solution is presented, most of them illustrated by a woodcut. For instance, Mydorge (following Leurechon) informs the reader how to make water in a glass boil without fire, "to make a door open from both sides; to build a bridge all round the earth which will not fall when its supports are removed; to keep all the water in the world in the air without a single drop falling to earth". The third chapter, on fireworks, contains even more spectacular problems, such as "if all the gunpowder in the world were put in a globe of glass or paper and set on fire all at once, what would happen? Nothing, since the pressure would be equal in every direction" (Thorndike).Binding soiled and spine with a few holes; lower part loose in binding. First 50 pages creased; several marks and thumbing throughout. A fair, probably well-used copy.

With 8 full-page woodcuts printed on both sides of four leaves inserted as plates, and numerous woodcut figures and illustrations in text, several full-page. Modern plain paper boards.

      - DSB I, pp. 377-384; VD17 23:236968W; cf. Kemp, The science of art, pp. 26, 211, and 269; Vagnetti DB5. First edition of a famous work on optics by the English natural philosopher and mathematician Roger Bacon (ca. 1220-ca. 1292). Bacon was well read in Arabic and ancient Greek sources on optics and perspective, a subject hardly studied in Europe during the earlier Middle Ages. The main sources for his theories were the writings of Euclid, Ptolemy and Alhazen (Ibn al-Haytham), and he followed Robert Grosseteste concerning the importance of light and in his emphasis on the use of lenses, not only for burning, but also for magnification to aid natural vision. Bacon advised magnifying glasses for old people as well as for people with weak eyes. The Perspectiva belonged to Bacon's Opus maius, compiled in manuscript in 1266-1267. The present edition was based on a medieval manuscript and was edited by Johann Combach (1585-1651), professor of philosophy at Marburg in GermanyWith a stain on the title-page and two on the last blank, probably from removing old stamps, browned throughout with a few small spots, but overall in good condition. Binding with some water stains, but otherwise good.

Strigel, a student of Melanchton, became professor of theology at Jena after studying in Freiburg im Breisgau, Leipzig, and Wittenberg. Disputes with Matthias Flacius Illyricus (1520-1575) led to his departure to the University of Leipzig in 1563, but he was suspended from that post a couple of years later because of suspicions that he held Calvinist views of the Lord's Supper. He finally moved to the Palatinate, where he openly confessed a Reformed understanding of the sacrament and taught at the University of Heidelberg from 1567 until his death in 1569. - I: A few pen underlinings.

        Dell' Unione del regno di Portogallo.

      1585 - First edition. 4to. Contemporary vellum, some browing here and there with toward the end of the volume some worming mostly marginal but touching the text (hardly any loss) of about 20ll. 10, 264ll. Genova, Rare first edition of this work which Brunet calls ?ouvrage curieux, qui a beaucoup de succès dans le temps? Written to celebrate the unification of the crowns of Portugal and Castille, this comprehensive history of the Portuguese empire includes a chronology of Portuguese kings since 1090. The first book mentions Columbus and the Portuguese settlement in Brazil and also reports on Portuguese activities in Africa and India. In addition, the role of the Jesuits is discussed at length. It also discusses China, Japan, France and the Low Countries. Brunet believes that the name of Conestaggio was a pseudonym and that the work was written by Juan de Silva, condé de Portalegre, who had accompanied Dom Sebastian to Africa as Spanish Ambassador. Adams C2502; Brunet II, 217; not in Borba. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ova paschalia sacro emblemate inscripta descriptaque.Ingolstadt, (colophon: widow of Joan. Simonis Knab), 1672. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. With engraved title-page, engraved vignette on the title-page of the second part, and 103 engravings in the text (portrait of Ferdinand III of Bohemia and, 100 engraved emblems and 2 others). Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      - Landwehr, German emblem books, 555; Praz, p. 504; cf. The John Carter Brown Library online. Reissue of the enlarged second edition of an emblem book by the Jesuit Georg Stengel (1585-1651). The first (1634) and second (1635) editions were published at Munich by Nicolas Henricus. Every chapter is headed by a finely engraved emblem in an egg-shaped form, with 4 small additional views in the corners. "In this most curious of emblem books, the author takes the egg as inspiration for meditations on Easter and the Eucharist. One hundred egg-shaped emblems explore the meaning of the egg within a Catholic theological perspective" (John Carter Brown Library). The range of meanings assigned to the egg through the ages provides a veritable paradise for the ardent iconologist. Great attention is shown for detail in both the emblems and the corner views, all engraved with excellent care. Each emblem is followed by extensive edifying readings. Some of the emblems show indigenous Americans (using them as inspiration for the following meditations) or relate directly to America.With some large water stains on the first three leaves and marginal water stains throughout, some occasional foxing. Otherwise in good condition.
