In a half morocco and cloth box. An interesting contemporary manuscript account written by Captain Martin de Herrera describing the misdeeds and abuses of the Viceroy of New Spain, don Alvaro Manrique de Zuniga, Marquis de Villamanrique, as well as Herrera's exploits in the New World. The DICCIONARIO UNIVERSAL DE HISTORIA DE GEOGRAFIA states: "This Viceroy, brother of the Duke of Bejar and a member of one of the most illustrious families of Spain, took up office on 17th October, 1585, and resigned in February 1590. He had bitter contentions with the Dominican, Franciscan and Augustinian Provincials over the question of compliance with the King's instructions with regard to the secularisation of the curacies which those orders administered....In 1587 Sir Francis Drake seized the ship Santa Ana off the coast of California, bearing merchandise from China and Japan. Drake had travelled the Pacific previously, causing damage to the provinces of Jalisco and Sinaloa. The Viceroy had ordered the ships at Acapulco to be in readiness and nominated Dr. Palacios as head of the expedition, but although these ships pursued the English, they were unable to find them. "Grave questions arose between the Viceroy and the Audiencia at Guadalajara on judicial matters, which led to a rising of the troops on both sides. The news of these differences was probably exaggerated, but caused much uneasiness at … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rare édition barcelonaise de cet ouvrage du dominicain espagnol Luis de Granada (1505-1588), initialement publié en 1561 à Lisbonne. "L'influence des écrits de Louis de Grenade est encore très mal connue, mais il est hors de doute qu'elle fut durable. Très apprécié par saint Charles Borromée, sainte Thérèse d'Avila et Saint Pierre d'Alcantara, ses contemporains, il fut l'une des principales sources d'inspiration de Saint François de Sales" (Laffont Bompiani). Le présent texte fut notamment l'un de ceux édités en chinois aux Philipines au début du 17e siècle par les missionnaires espagnols. Belle marque de l'imprimeur Jaume Cendrat sur le titre et au verso du dernier feuillet. Titre en rouge et noir. Réparation ancienne dans le blanc du titre où une fenêtre avait été découpée. Mouillure angulaire à la fin du volume, quelques rousseurs et autres salissures. Palau, 107920 (avec un autre nom de libraire).

GRANADA (Luis de).
En Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. - in-folio. 6ff. 295pp. 2ff. Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. 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). Belle marque d'imprimeur sur la page de titre et sur le dernier feuillet. Traces de mouillure angulaire.

Braun, Georg and Hogenberg, Frans:
Cologne, c. 1588. Map. Copper engraving, 29.5 x 49 cms, recent hand colour, Latin 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). 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.
