GRANADA (Luis de).
En Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. in-folio. 4ff. 244pp. 2ff. Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition imprimée à Barcelone de ce traité de morale du dominicain espagnol Luis de Granada (1505-1588), l'un des grands textes classiques de la littérature ascétique espagnole. Sa première publication remontait à l'année 1556 et, condamné par l'Inquisition en raison de sa tonalité novatrice, il fut mis à l'Index en 1559. "Ecrivain précis et coloré, Luis de Grenade dispose d'une phrase ample et lente, imitée de l'art oratoire classique. Dans son argumentation, il a souvent recours aux subtilités de la scolastique; mais lorsqu'il décrit la misère du pécheur ou les ravissements de la vie spirituelle, sa prose se fait agile, poétique et extraordinairement docile à l'expression de ses sentiments" (Laffont Bompiani). "Esta obra, y el Libro de la Oración y Meditación, son las más célebres y leídas de Fr. Luis de Granada. Tanto es así, que es frecuente entre los bibliófilos, y en las tertulias que se originan en las librerías de viejo, recordar los innumerables casos de célebres personajes calificados de heterodoxos, y sin embargo seducidos por el admirable estilo y las riquezas literarias de la Guia de Pecadores y el Libro de la Oración y Meditación" (Palau). "The best known of his ascetical writings, and the one that achieved the greatest measure of success, is "The Sinner's Guide" (La Guia de Pecadores). ( ) It is marked by a smooth, harmonious style of purest Spanish idiom which has merited for it the reputation of a classic, and by an unctuous eloquence that has made it … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition of a fundamental book in the history both of technology and of book design, and ?one of the most elegantly produced of all technological treatises. The scientific import of Ramelli's work resides in his demonstration of the unlimited possibilities of machines. For example, the dozens of water-powered pumps and mills shown in his treatise clearly demonstrated that non-muscular power could be substituted for horse- or human-power in any mechanical task requiring continuous or repetitive application of force, and the portrayal of over twenty types of water pump . destroyed the notion that there were necessary limits the configuration or arrangement of a machine.

Provenance: purchased from George Staack, 1963. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Item #401728 FIRST EDITION of this foundational work in the histories of technology and book design. Ramelli explains in his preface that the extravagance of the book was meant as much to foil a crudely pirated publication of some of his designs (probably in the circa 1583 Timon of Ambroise Bachot, future ingénieur du roi), as to fulfill his desire to show gratitude to his patron Henri III. The work was reprinted only once, in 1620. Ramelli shows "the unlimited possibilities of machines.

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.

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.

ARETINO Pietro
1588. Woodcut medallion portrait of Aretino on each title-page, typographic ornament, some italic type. 4 works in one vol. 8vo (145 x 85mm). [8], 285, [3]ff. (continuous pagination and signatures). 18th-century French red morocco, gilt fillets on cover, spine gilt in compartments, gilt tooled turn-ins, gilt edges. [London, John Wolfe], A handsome copy of this famous Elizabethan piracy by John Wolfe, a London printer who learned his trade in Italy; in the 1570s he spent time in Florence and likely worked, for a time, at the prestigious Giunta Press. He employed exiled and expatriate Italians as editors and produced a number of such editions by Italian writers. All the plays here are reprints and were well known; indeed it has been suggested that the Pedant in Il Marescalco may directly or indirectly lie behind the character of Holofernes. Provenance: Bookplate of Charles Meek (1885-1965), anthropologist and colonial administrator. STC 19911; Woodfield, Surreptitious Printing in England, no. 143. Pforzheimer 800. CNCE 2486.

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).

Tectonically they are located on the Halmahera Plate within the Molucca Sea Collision Zone. Geographically they are located east of Sulawesi, west of New Guinea, and north and east of Timor. The islands were known as the Spice Islands due to the nutmeg, mace and cloves that were originally exclusively found there, the presence of which sparked colonial interest from Europe in the 16th century. The Maluku Islands formed a single province from Indonesian independence until 1999, when it was split into two provinces. A new province, North Maluku, incorporates the area between Morotai and Sula, with the arc of islands from Buru and Seram to Wetar remaining within the existing Maluku Province. - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller.

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, 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.
