Der Franziskaner Nas, ein ehemaliger Anhänger Luthers, trat als Verfasser polemischer gegenreformatorischer Schriften hervor. Alle seine Werke "zeichnet ein volkstümlicher Witz und eine Kraft und Gewandtheit des Ausdruckes aus, der ihn uns als nicht unwürdigen Nebenbuhler seines großen Gegners Fischart erschienen läßt, womit sich eine warme Theilnahme an allen Leiden und Freuden seines unglücklichen deutschen Vaterlandes paart, die uns die oft so harte eckige Persönlichkeit des charakterfesten Mannes doch auch wieder in liebenswürdigem Lichte darstellt" (ADB XXIII, 260). - Etwas (braun-)fleckig. Inkomplett: es fehlen der Titel und das Gegenblatt A4 mit 2 SS. Vorrede (im Faksimile beiliegend); das Doppelblatt A2-3 lose; der Text selbst vollständig.

Rappelons que son imprimeur lyonnais, Benoit Rigaud, a été durant vingt ans, de 1568 à cette même année 1588, l'éditeur exclusif des « Prophéties » de Nostradamus.

Il a publié en 1561, une édition revue et augmentée de « L'art d'arithmétique » de Claude de Boissière, et des commentaires sur l'Arithmétique de Gemma Frisius (1585).

"Maffei writes extensively about Brazil, describing it very accurately" (Borba de Moraes), in fact devoting three chapters to the subject. Book six is devoted to China and includes a description of tea, to which Maffei ascribed several health benefits, regular consumption resulting in a "long and healthy life" ("Elles les . fait vivre longues années, presque sans aucune langueur", p. 230). The translation is by Abbé Michel de Pure (1634-1680). Title-page with stamp and owner's inscription of the Barnabites' College, Paris ("Ex Libris Collegii S. Eligii Parisiorum Cleric. Regular S.

"Porta expanded upon his theory of the correspondence between external form and internal character in this treatise on plant physiognomy. Porta claimed that plant physiognomy was the theoretical side of agriculture; however, his doctrine of signatures - that the exterior form of a plant indicates its medicinal qualities - was more akin to sympathetic magic than to science and led to some bizarre claims, e.g., that herbs growing in rock clefts will help break up bladder stones, and that plants resembling flies and butterflies … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAURENS (Honoré de)
- S.l, s. n, 1588. In-8, plein cartonnage vélin ivoire à la Bradel, titre doré et daté en pied, tranches rouges (rel. moderne), (1) f., (14), 368 p. [sign. a8 A-Z8]. Edition peut-être parisienne, publiée à la suite de celle d’Aix-en-Provence (1586), de cet essai représentatif de l’état d’esprit d’une partie des parlementaires de province pendant les Guerres de religion. Avocat général au Parlement d'Aix-en-Provence, Honoré de Laurens (1554-1612), qui deviendra archevêque d'Embrun, était favorable à la Ligue dont il fut l’un des principaux représentants locaux. Il composa cet essai très largement diffusé, pour glorifier l'édit de Nemours signé par Henri III le 18 juillet 1585, qui révoquait les édits de tolérance en faveur des protestants. L’auteur se fait le porte-parole d’une politique ultra-catholique et intransigeante dont il récapitule les principes. Il se réfère à des exemples historiques ou à certains de ses contemporains comme Jean Bodin, pour démontrer que l’unité religieuse est essentielle à la conservation des États. Il glorifie la mission sacrée des parlements - "glaive que Dieu [ ] a mis entre les mains du prince" - dans leur combat contre l’hérésie et exhorte le roi, jusqu’à la menace s’il faiblissait, à lutter sans merci contre l'hérésie protestante. (Pallier, 'Imprimerie à Paris pendant la Ligue', 1585-1594, n°117, p. 245. Renouard, III, n°496).

GONZALEZ de MENDOZA, Juan.
London: Printed by J. Wolfe for Edward White, 1588. Octavo, [8], 410 pp., owner's seal on title-page; period-style speckled calf by Aquarius, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands; calf bookform box. Rare and desirable: the first book on China printed in England, the first work in English devoted exclusively to China, and one of the most important and influential Elizabethan books of exploration and discovery. This attractive copy was once in the famous library of Charles Boxer, with his distinctive red seal on the title-page. Prolific writer, scholar, orientalist, intelligence officer, Camões Professor of History at King's College London, Boxer was also one of the great collectors of his time, and assembled an important library of books on China the far East, and the East Indies.This is the very rare first English translation of Juan González de Mendoza's history of the Chinese empire and beyond. Mendoza (1545-1618) was a Spanish Augustinian priest who travelled to Mexico in 1562; from here he developed a keen interest in the mission to China. Although he never joined the mission, Mendoza amassed a large volume of material gathered by Augustinian Franciscan missionaries to the Philippines and China, as well as gaining access to the impressive collection of Chinese works acquired by Martin de Rada in Fukien in 1575.Mendoza's book was translated into English by Robert Parke, at the suggestion of Richard Hakluyt, from the Madrid edition of 1586, the revised and most complete edition following a first publication in Rome in 1585.

Rare édition barcelonaise de l'un des principaux ouvrages ascétiques de Luis de Granada (1505-1588), souvent considéré comme son chef d'œuvre. Le livre fut mis à l'Index en 1559, peu après sa parution en 1554 à Salamanque, et il valut à son auteur de sérieux démêlés avec l'Inquisition dirigée par Melchor Cano. "Los teólogos contemporáneos de la Reforma miraban con ojeriza los libros de devoción en lengua vulgar inclusos los de Fr. Luis de Granada, y ésta fué la causa de la prohibición de la Guia de Pecadores y la Oración y Meditación" (Menendez y Pelayo, cité par Palau).

RAMELLI, Agostino.
First edition Paris: for the author, 1588. Exceptionally fine copy, with distinguished provenance, of one of the most important books on the science and technology of machines in the renaissance, and one of the most famous illustrated books of the sixteenth century - a tour de force of book design. This is a splendid copy in contemporary French gilt vellum, ruled in red, and entirely untouched. We are not aware of a similar copy in quality since the Norman-Freilich copy (sold Sotheby's 2001, $291,750). Provenance: Francoise d'Espinay de Bretagne, first wife of Henri de Schomberg, comte de Nanteuil (1604 gift inscription on front free endpaper); Princes of Liechtenstein (stamp on title); Otto Schäfer (sold Sotheby's 1995, £38,900). A fundamental book in the history both of technology and of book design, and "one of the most elegantly produced of all technological treatises" (Norman). The scientific import of Ramelli's work resides in his demonstration of "the unlimited possibilities of machines.
