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. Palau, II, 399, qui en possédait un exemplaire (avec un autre nom de libraire et sans le feuillet portant la marque d'imprimeur à la fin).

Very Nice: Red and Black title page and text with mutiple small (1 1/2" X 1") decorations throughout the text: some foxing: some paper loss and occasional tear: front board off as is front endpaper facing: ex-library. Lovely missal with Gregorian calendar, order of the Mass, devotions to Mary and other important markers of the faith. Beautiful example of early book art: smooth vellum binding over solid board, red and black printed title page with religious vignettes at top and bottom of page; heavy paper, an epistle followed by the calendar of the Church with some days marked in red, general prayers, various masses for different holy days, and hymns for other holidays. Much of the book has little decorations on each page, either a vignette of a saint or a decorative capitols. In very good condition, with age appropriate paper discoloration but very little foxing: paper loss to the endpapers :(which look to be a newer addition), bookplate of Haverhill Public Library, James E Gale Fund, library markings, especially on first several pages. There is a note in pencil on the back of the loose endpaper and some numbering on the back of the next blank from the library. Otherwise, text is clear and crisp; elegant Gothic lettering in red and black, intermittent decorative woodcuts.

Foglietta, Uberto.
Ex officina Hieronymi Bartoli, Genuae, 1588. First Genoa edition of Italian historian Foglietta's biographical sketches of influential citizens from Liguria, the region in which Genoa happens to be located, including => four pages on Christopher Columbus. Native Genoan and historian Fogiletta (1518?81) was banished from the city and moved to Rome after publishing his work Delle cose della repubblica di Genova, which described abuses of the old nobility against the new (the latter including his family). The present work, originally published in 1572 at Rome, was written to prove his loyalty to his hometown, to which he happily returned in 1576. The text is sumptuously printed in single columns with spacious margins using roman and italic type with a few illustrated initials, headpieces, and type ornaments as well as a printer's device featuring a hydra surrounded by the motto "virtus virescit vulnere" on the title-page; an index printed in double columns and register follow the main body of text. Cataloging at the Library of Congress notes that this edition consists of the same sheets as the Rome, 1573 printing except for the first gathering (pp. [1?8]), which has been reset. Provenance: "Foglieta Claro[rum] Illustrium" has been written in ink along the bottom edge with "Don Berardi della Ferra" and another name scribbled out on the title-page, as well as a signature dated 1669 below the colophon, in what appear to be three different early hands; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. 4to (24.5 cm, 9.6"). [8], 26 … [Click Below for Full Description]

RAMELLI, Agostino.
Paris: for the author, 1588. First edition. First edition, a magnificent copy bound in contemporary gilt vellum, and with outstanding provenance, of one of the most famous illustrated books of the sixteenth century and a landmark in book design. "The plates in Ramelli's treatise are artistically as well as technologically superb, the bilingual text beautifully printed, and both plates and text surrounded by handsome borders of typographic ornaments. The reasons for this sumptuousness were twofold: first Ramelli had dedicated the book to his patron Henri III; and second, he had previously had several designs stolen from him by a trusted associate (probably Ambroise Bachot, later engineer to Henri IV), who published them in corrupt and mutilated form and claimed them as his own. As a result of this experience Ramelli planned his treatise as a particularly lavish work that would be difficult to counterfeit, and produced and published it from his own house where he could maintain absolute control over the project' (Norman). Together with Agricola's De Re Metallica (1556), Ramelli's work was the most influential and copied of all the early illustrated manuals of inventions and machines. Its influence was felt in such later works as Böckler's Theatrum machinarum (1662), and it was even copied in China, where it had been taken by Jesuit missionaries. This is without doubt one of the finest copies to have appeared on the market, the only comparable copy being that of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc in the Norman library (Christie's New York, 18 March 1998, lot 168, $200,500; subseq … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shaping English perception of China in the 16th century, the first substantial book on China of the Age of Discovery; the very rare first English edition. 1588. London. Printed by J. Wolfe for Edward White. 4to (170 x 135 mm). [8], 410 pp. Speckled calf by Aquarius, period style, raised bands, lettered and tooled in gilt; calf box. Title-page slightly dust-soiled, a few leaves a little browned, cut close by the binder affecting some headlines and catchwords, small rust-hole in T4 resulting in the loss of a few letters; nonetheless an excellent copy, bound without the final blank leaf. 60,000 $ Very rare and influential first edition in English of the first substantial printed book on China, the first European book to contain Chinese characters, and one of the most important Elizabethan books of exploration and discovery; “the most comprehensive and popular book on Ming China to appear in Europe” (Lach). “ 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); “first European book in which Chinese characters occur” (Sabin). Robert Parke translated Mendoza’s book into English at the suggestion of Richard Hakluyt, from the Madrid edition of 1586, the revised and most complete edition following the first publication in Rome in 1585. Löwendahl notes its rapid translation into seven languages and impact on the European imagination of China.

The 'Gerichtzordnung' helped organize and define legal procedures, decrees, concepts, and law practices in Bavaria in the early 16th-century. It was not written to change the current laws, just make them more understandable and expand on their meanings. This book remained the most important book of legal consultation into the 17th-century. This 1588 reissue of the 1520 first edition is exceedingly rare and is identifiable by the title page and woodcut. [Attributes: First Edition]

Gonzalez de Mendoza, John
Very rare and influential first edition in English of the first substantial printed book on China, the first European book to contain Chinese characters, and one of the most important Elizabethan books of exploration and discovery; "the most comprehensive and popular book on Ming China to appear in Europe" (Lach). "... 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); "first European book in which Chinese characters occur" (Sabin). Robert Parke translated Mendoza's book into English at the suggestion of Richard Hakluyt, from the Madrid edition of 1586, the revised and most complete edition following the first publication in Rome in 1585. Löwendahl notes its rapid translation into seven languages and impact on the European imagination of China. The English edition was by far the most significant in terms of its reach and influence. This was 'the most influential and detailed work on China prepared in the sixteenth century... Its popularity may be accounted for in part by the great and unsatisfied demand which existed everywhere in Europe for a comprehensive and authoritative survey of China in the vernacular languages... In fact, the authority of Mendoza's book was so great that it became the point of departure and the basis of comparison for all subsequent European works on China written before the eighteenth century...' (Lach). Gonzalez de Mendoza (1545-1618) was a Spanish Augustinian … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pierre Belon (1517-64) was one of the first explorer-naturalists. "He spent three years travelling in the Levant, from 1546 to 1549. His journey was inspired by a desire to see the plants and medicinal substances of which he had read, but his travels through Greece, Asia Minor, Egypt and the Holy Land resulted in observations more than merely botanical, in a most remarkable work which discusses the antiquities, customs and manners of the countries Belon visited, as well as the natural history." (Blackmer). The information he supplies on the people, way of life and natural history of the Near East is remarkable for its accuracy and objectivity. "His was the most documented account of the Levant which had appeared up to that time in French. Of importance is his description of Cairo after 30 years of Turkish occupation." (Blackmer). Although Belon was trained as a pharmacist, he experienc … [Click Below for Full Description]
