Very important and unique 16th century Spanish manuscript account (relacion) on Sicily, Italy, being a detailed report of all relevant aspects of the region. Account written in Palermo (Kingdom of Sicily), dated 9th January 1585, made at the request of the Spain's Viceroy of Sicily, Diego Enríquez de Guzmán (1530-1604), Count of Alba de Liste, Viceroy of Sicily between 1585-1591. These type of reports were classified as secret, accessed only by a few dignitaries. The manuscript details physical and geographic aspects of Sicily, the population, division into provinces, monasteries, fortresses, castles, positions held by the nobles, government, judicial system, bailiffs, government, council of war, among others. The account also describes Palermo, Messina, Syracuse, Catania, and other locations. The Relacion ends reporting military aspects of the enclave, analysing Spanish infantry, cavalry, militia, navy, fortifications, etc. It concludes that the domain seems safe and that its people are peaceful and not belligerent. This document was executed prior to the final version presented to the Viceroy. It includes several comments and corrections on the margins and in the text by a different hand. Some of these were later added to the final version given to the Viceroy. The National Library of Spain (BNE) holds a copy executed during the 17th century. The text of the BNE later date copy includes some of the corrections suggested in our manuscript and it is included in a group of accounts bound together pertaining all to Sicily. The spine is titled (translated from the Spanish), "T … [Click Below for Full Description]

Selon Caillet, qui rapporte les propos de Stanislas de Guaïta, il s’agit du "plus étrange Livre que produisit cet étrange Frère Taillepied". Commençant par une Chronologie des Roys Gaulois, depuis le deluge universel, iusques à la Nativité de nostre Seigneur, l’ouvrage est divisé en deux parties, chacune avec une foliotation particulière.

Extremely rare 16th century manuscript military account (relacion) concerning the Kingdom of Sicily and the elite Spanish military forces, known as TERCIO, ruling the kingdom under the House of Habsburg. Account written circa 1585. Unsigned. Such reports were classified as secret, accessed only by a few dignitaries. The document provides an extremely detailed relacion of the Tercio Spanish military unit stationed in the Kingdom of Sicily at the time. It lists the name of the soldiers, officers of the infantry (mentioning salaries), cavalry, and castles . It also indicates the tenure of soldiers and the number of soldiers in each castle of the island, among others. Historically the Tercio, was a Spanish military regiment force created in 1534 by the Habsburg House monarch, Charles I of Spain and Holy Roman Emperor, with the objective of protecting Spanish strongholds and possessions in Italy. The Tercio, considered the first European modern army, became the military elite of the Spanish Empire and fought many battles against the Ottoman Empire. Between 1571 and 1588 the Sicilian regiment fought in Flanders, in Tunisia against the Turks, and in Portugal. In 1588, the Tercio of Sicily suffered great losses of men when the Spanish Armada shipwrecked during the attempt to invade England.

Cristóvão da Costa or Cristóbal Acosta (Latinized as Christophorus Acosta Africanus, 1525 - 1594) was a Portuguese doctor and natural historian and is considered a pioneer in the study of plants from the Orient, especially their use in pharmacology. Acosta's treatise on the elephant, likely the first published in Europe, occupies pp. 320-342, and the woodcuts of the elephant are the first to appear in Europe. These were widely copied and reproduced over the next two centuries. It was also among the first works to record words from the Basque language. The text also includes bibliographical references to American products (Brazilian rubber, pages 93; pineapples, p. 266-267 with an illustration on p. 268). Chapter 68 is devoted to opium.

Mexican Incunabula]
Mexico: Pedro Ocharte, 1585. 125,[15] leaves, with two woodcut illustrations on titlepage, woodcut initials scattered throughout. Small quarto. Later vellum, remnants of vellum fore-edge ties, manuscript spine title. Titlepage mounted, roughly repaired at margins, slightly affecting text; leaf A78 nearly detached from a stub. Early ownership inscriptions on titlepage recto, light marca de fuego on top edge, modern bookplate on front pastedown. Light dampstaining at top edge and lower corner, light tanning and occasional faint foxing. Good. An important, early, and terrifically scarce Mexican imprint, publishing the rules and regulations of the Franciscan order, first established in 1541 at Barcelona, here printed as they were revised at Toledo in 1583. Among other things, the new statutes formalized a prohibition on those of Jewish ancestry serving in the order. The final section of the book contains provisions particular to Franciscan activities in colonial possessions, as well as an index of new rules. The Franciscans arrived in New Spain almost simultaneously with Cortés, and were actively proselytizing from the very outset of the Spanish conquests. The work was produced by Pedro Ocharte, third printer of the New World, who took over the press of the first printer, Juan Pablos, in 1563. Sabin calls this work "excessively rare." Wagner's 1940 census of early Mexican imprints located nine institutional copies; seventy- five years later, OCLC locates six. It appears only twice in auction records.

Small and old inscription on the verso of the front flyleaf. A small reference written on the title. On the verso of the title a round red stamp. Upper corner of the last gatherings slightly waterstained. Paper somewhat yellowing) (Note: The Roman author Aulus Gellius, ca. 125-180 AD, was never counted as a major author in antiquity, nor later. His only work 'Noctes Atticae' or 'Attic Nights', is a miscellany that 'ranges from literature to law, from wondrous tales to moral philosophy; one of his favorite topics is the Latin language'. (.) The exposition, in a mildly archaizing but never difficult Latin, often takes the form of dialogues with or between culturally eminent persons whom Gellius had known'. It derives its name from the fact of its having been written during the long nights of a winter which the author spent in Attica as a young itinerant student. The Noctes Atticae were exploited by pagans and Christians alike in late antiquity. In medieval florilegia he is much quoted for piquant tales and moral sentiments.

Gonzalez de Mendoza, Juan
First edition of the first major survey of China, and an early America; as referred to Sabin, this is the "FIRST EUROPEAN BOOK IN WHICH CHINESE CHARACTERS OCCUR" (Sabin); "the most comprehensive and popular book on Ming China to appear in Europe" (Lach), it was translated into Italian, French, Latin, German, and English, by order of Hakluyt by Robert Parke. It was a true 16thcentury best seller. "... It is probably no exaggeration to say that Mendoza's book had been read by the majority of well-educated Europeans at the beginning of the seventeenth-century. Its influence was naturally enormous" (Boxer, xvii). It's relevance for Americana is concentrated from page 341-440, beginning with the Ytinerario del Padre... Martin Ignacio... de la Provincia de S. Ioseph... y de la vuelta que dio por la India Oriental y otros Reynos, rodeando el Mundo. According to Sabin, it provides "curious details concerning the Canaries, St. Domingo, Jamaica, Cuba, Porto Rico, and especially Mexico. Ortelius, in his Atlas, declared that he had received more information concerning America from this Itinerary than from any other single book". This edition contains the valuable Loyola's account of Antonio de Espejo's exploration of New Mexico, which was never published separately. The American part begins with the voyage undertaken by the Franciscan Martin Ignacio towards Santo Domingo and Mexico. "The notes of Martin de Rada, or de Harrada, in the first expedition (along with Pedro Sarmiento) in 1575, and those of Gonzalez de Mendoza on his mission in 1578, enabled the la … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gonzalez de Mendoza, Juan
First edition of the first major survey of China, which influenced European perception of China in the century of Discoveries; the first appearance of Espejo’s narrative of his exploration of Mexico. 1585. Rome. Vincentio Accolti. 8vo (165 x 115 mm). 15 ff., 440 pp. 19th century elegant half vellum over boards, flat spine lettered in gilt “Conde Casa Rojas”, spine with coronets at head and tail, upper hinge cracked but holding firm, overall good. Some foxing, especially to title, old marginal restoration to title, pp. 352 poorly inked, some early reader took on the job of refreshing it. 15,000 $ First edition of the first major survey of China, and an early America; as referred to Sabin, this is the “FIRST EUROPEAN BOOK IN WHICH CHINESE CHARACTERS OCCUR” (Sabin); “the most comprehensive and popular book on Ming China to appear in Europe” (Lach), it was translated into Italian, French, Latin, German, and English, by order of Hakluyt by Robert Parke. It was a true 16th century best seller. “ It is probably no exaggeration to say that Mendoza’s book had been read by the majority of well-educated Europeans at the beginning of the seventeenth-century. Its influence was naturally enormous” (Boxer, xvii). It’s relevance for Americana is concentrated from page 341-440, beginning with the Ytinerario del Padre Martin Ignacio de la Provincia de S. Ioseph y de la vuelta que dio por la India Oriental y otros Reynos, rodeando el Mundo. According to Sabin, it provides “curious details concerning the Canaries, St. Domingo, Jamaica, Cuba, Porto Rico, and especially Mexico. Ortelius, in his … [Click Below for Full Description]

TOLEDO Francisco [manoscritto, '500].
[S.l.], 1585, manoscritto su carta, steso da due mani (una per il testo, un'altra per le tre carte di indice, in fine). Scrittura: corsiva "bastarda italiana", di medio-bassa qualità e non sempre di facile lettura (titoli a parte). Un volume in-4, leg. coeva in piena pergamena floscia (ampia mancanza alla pergamena del piatto anteriore, sgualciture, dorso scurito), carte II, 574 [ma: 576 per errori di cartulazione], [5]. Il volume riporta una data manoscritta sopra il titolo, al recto della prima carta di testo: 1585. E' presente una cartulazione manoscritta coeva sulle carte di testo: le ultime 5 cc., delle quali le prime 3 recano un indice manoscritto da altra mano in epoca di poco successiva, non sono numerate. La cartulazione reca alcuni errori: una carta non numerata fra la 166 e 167, 2 carte numerate 216, salto di cartulazione da 224 a 226, 2 carte numerate 328. Circoscritta gora con mancanza di carta ai primi due fogli bianchi; qualche macchia di inchiostro qua e là, lievi aloni marginali. Rispetto alle edizioni a stampa di quest'opera (la prima italiana è solo del 1599), ci sono alcune differenze: il manoscritto è suddiviso in nove libri (invece che in sette): in realtà il quinto e il sesto contengono il testo che nelle edizioni a stampa è riunito nel quinto libro; da questa differenza consegue che il settimo libro corrisponde al sesto di quelle a stampa e l'ottavo al settimo. Il nono libro contiene il "Trattato dei sette peccati capitali" che, normalmente, è considerato un'opera a sé stante.

CASTIGLIONE, Baldassare
CASTIGLIONE, Baldassare (CHAPPUYS, Gabriel, Tr.). Le parfait courtisan Paris, Par Nicolas Bonfons, 1585. £975 8vo, ã8 ê8 a-z A-V8, pp. (xxxii) 678 (=658) (xxx). Double column, French in Roman letter, Italian in Italic. Printer’s device on title page with motto: “proba me deus et scito cor meum” (Psalm 138:23). C19th ms. note on title page “Monneraye / Monneraye / bon garçon”, with name “Monneraye” appearing occasionally throughout the book on margins. Paper evenly yellowed because of aging, occasional small wormholes to outer and lower blank margin, no loss to text. Some light dampstaining and spotting, edges of initial leaves slightly worn. Rebound in modern vellum with yapp edges. This is an early French translation of this greatly renowned work of Baldassare Castiglione (1478-1529). Castiglione was an Italian courtier, diplomat, soldier and a prominent Renaissance author. He was born at Mantua, where he served the Gonzaga family, then moved to Urbino in the service of its duke, Guidolbaldo da Montefeltro. In 1506 he was in England to receive the Order of the Garter for his master from Henry VII. In 1524 he went to Spain as papal envoy; he died there in 1529, universally mourned. Finished in 1518, the book sets forth in a series of dialogues the author’s conception of the ideal courtier and the norms of courtesy in a cultured society. Kendall Tarte has shed light on the influence of this work on the French culture of the time in relation to another similar work, especially with regard to the role of women: “La Puce de Madame des-Roches offers a complex portrait of one wom … [Click Below for Full Description]

El interior en muy buen estado con el papel blanco y firme, algo corto de margen superior, aunque el corte no afecta al texto.- Teófilo Folengo, nacido como Gerolamo Folengo, más conocido por sus seudónimos de Limerno Pitocco, Merlín Cocayo o Merlinus Cocaius (Mantua, 8 de noviembre de 1491 - Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza, 9 de diciembre de 1544), fue un escritor, humanista y humorista benedictino italiano. Folengo cultivó asiduamente el género macarrónico-goliárdico, que tenía en la época una larga historia en la cultura véneta, rescatando para él su carácter de ejercicio parodístico y elevándolo a instrumento estilístico-literario verdadero y propio. Su lenguaje es muy personal, y mezcla formas del latín clásico y léxico dialectal para ofrecer un retrato absolutamente anticonvencional de la realidad social de su tiempo. La primera edición de las "Obras de Merlinicocaii Poetae Mantuani Macaronicorum etc." está datada en Vencia en 1517; más tarde se editó otra en 1521 con grabados en madera.

Hotman, Francois
NP: No pub, 1585. First edition. Vellum. Very Good. 8vo. 234,(22)pp. Index. Woodcut on Q4. Reprint of the title page of the 1585 bull of Sixtus V on P6. Cont. vellum. With an inscription on the front free endpaper by "H. F. Plavensis," presumably Hulderich Froelich, a native of Plauen in Saxony, and poet laureate of Basel. The text is well underlined with some occasional marginalia, all presumably in Froelich's hand. The true first edition of an often reprinted satirical polemic against the 1585 bull of Sixtus V, which excommunicated Henry IV and Conde. The first edition can be identified by the list of errata on the final leaf, and by the printed notation "Nahum 3" at the foot of the title-page. The following year, 1586, an English translation appeared under the title THE BRUTISH THUNDERBOLT.

Later vellum, remnants of vellum fore-edge ties, manuscript spine title. Titlepage mounted, roughly repaired at margins, slightly affecting text; leaf A78 nearly detached from a stub. Early ownership inscriptions on titlepage recto, light marca de fuego on top edge, modern bookplate on front pastedown. Light dampstaining at top edge and lower corner, light tanning and occasional faint foxing. Good. An important, early, and terrifically scarce Mexican imprint, publishing the rules and regulations of the Franciscan order, first established in 1541 at Barcelona, here printed as they were revised at Toledo in 1583. Among other things, the new statutes formalized a prohibition on those of Jewish ancestry serving in the order. The final section of the book contains provisions particular to Franciscan activities in colonial possessions, as well as an index of new rules. The Franciscans arrived in New Spain almost simultaneously with Cortés, and were actively proselytizing from the very outset of the Spanish conquests. The work was produced by Pedro Ocharte, third printer of the New World, who took over the press of the first printer, Juan Pablos, in 1563. Sabin calls this work "excessively rare."

Among other things, the new statutes formalized a prohibition on those of Jewish ancestry serving in the order. The final section of the book contains provisions particular to Franciscan activities in colonial possessions, as well as an index of new rules. The Franciscans arrived in New Spain almost simultaneously with Cort�s, and were actively proselytizing from the very outset of the Spanish conquests. The work was produced by Pedro Ocharte, third printer of the New World, who took over the press of the first printer, Juan Pablos, in 1563. Sabin calls this work "excessively rare." Wagner's 1940 census of early Mexican imprints located nine institutional copies; seventy- five years later, OCLC locates six. It appears only twice in auction records.
