        [GROUP OF THIRTEEN MANUSCRIPT TRANSCRIPTIONS OF SPANISH COLONIAL DOCUMENTS RELATING TO CALIFORNIA, RANGING FROM 1589 TO 1774, ALL COPIED FROM ORIGINALS IN THE ARCHIVO GENERAL DE INDIAS IN SEVILLE]

      [Various places. 1589-1774, but all copied in Seville in 1884].. [163]pp. Folio. Stitched gatherings. Some minor soiling. Very good. An interesting collection of documents on colonial Spanish California, transcribed from originals held in the Archivo General de Indias in Seville, Spain. The bulk of the documents are dated around the end of the 16th century, and relate to Spanish explorer Sebastian Vizcaino (1548- 1624). The two lengthier pieces are "Diarios" of Spanish missionaries in California, Fray Junipero Serra and Fray Juan Crespi. It is likely that few if any of these documents were ever published in printed form, making a manuscript version the only available format. Each transcript is signed at the end with a statement about when and where it was copied. 1) CAPITULOS DE CARTA A S.M.

        Anderer Theil Der Bücher und Schrifften. Jetzt auffs new auß den Originalien ... an tag gegeben Durch Iohannem Huserum [Johannes Huser].

      Basel, Konrad von Waldkirch, 1589.. (Bd. 2 von 10): Dieser Theil begreifft fürnehmlich die Schrifften, inn denen die Fundamenta angezeigt werde(n), auff welche die Kunst der Rechten Artzney stehe, und auß was Buechern dieselbe gelehrnet werde. 342 S., 1 w. Bl., 28 nn. Bll. mit 1 (doppelt abgedruckten) ganzseitigen Porträt des Paracelsus in Holzschnitt und einer Holzschnitt-Druckermarke am Ende. Gr.-8°. Pgmt. der Zeit (etw. fleckig und bestoßen, gewellt).. Der zweite Band (Andere Theil) der von Johannes Huser herausgegebenen Ausgabe der Werkes des Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, genannt Paraclsus. - VD 16, P 367. Sudhoff 217. - "Alles in allem genommen lässt sich diese Huser'sche Ausgabe der medicinischen und 'philosophischen' Schriften Hohenheims als die tüchtige Arbeit eines fleissigen Sammlers bezeichnen, die sehr über Gebühr geschmäht worden ist" (Sudhoff S. 409). - "Die Tatsache, dass ein Großteil der Paracelsischen Textmasse bis heute erhalten blieb, ist dem glücklichen Umstand zu verdanken, dass Johannes Huser frühzeitig eine Gesamtausgabe der nichttheologischen Werke besorgte. Diese erschien 1589 und 1590 in Basel in 10 Bänden. Wegen Verzögerung durch den Drucker kamen die von Huser vorbereiteten chirurgischen Bücher erst nach dessen Tod 1605 in Straßburg heraus. Im Gegensatz zu den meisten anderen Herausgebern hatte Huser die einmalige Gelegenheit, die viele der Autographen Hohenheims einzusehen. Dadurch ist die Substanz seiner Editionen gegenüber den Frühdrucken qualitativ deutlich besser" (www.paracelsus.uzh.ch). - Der vorliegende zweite Band enthält folgende zwei Werke: 1. Das Buch Paragranum. - Hier werden die vier Voraussetzungen (Philosophie, Astronomie, Alchemie und Tugend) des Arztes behandelt. - 2. Drey Bücher .. Den Hochwirdigsten ... des Ertzherzogthumbs Kärnten etc. Zu Ehren geschriben. - Diese sogenannten Kärntner Schriften enthalten zu Anfang eine Kurze Chronik des Landes Kärnten unter besonderer Berücksichtigung auf den Bergbau in Kärnten. Daneben die sieben Defensionem (seine Verteidigungen gegen die Angriffe der medizinischen Traditionalisten), das Labyrinth der irrenden Ärzte (eine Grundlegung einer früghen ganzheitlichen Medizin) und das Buch von den Tartarischen Krankheiten (die durch im Körper aus Ablagerungen oder Rückständen gebildeten Steine) hier zusammengefasst. - Durchgehend gebräunt und fleckig, teils etw. wasserandig. Einige Bll. mit Papierdurchbrüchen im weißen Rand, kleinen Randläsuren oder Wurmgängen (teils hinterlegt). Teils mit alten Anstreichungen und Randnotizen.

        DELLA RAGION DI STATO, LIBRI DIECI Con $1Tre Libri delle Cause della Grandezza, e Magnificenza delle Città$2.

      Venezia, appresso I Gioliti, 1589. In-8 p. (mm. 223x146), bross. muta ottocentesca, 8 cc.nn., 367 pp.num., marca tipografica al frontesp. e fregio tipograf. al fine; ornato da testatine e pregevoli grandi capilett. figur. a vignetta, inc. su legno. "Prima edizione" collettiva - dedicata all?'arcivescovo di Salisburgo Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau - del più celebre trattato italiano di politica dopo ?"Il Principe?" di Machiavelli. Cfr. Diz. Biografico degli Italiani,XIII, pp 356-357: ?"Il cuneese Giovanni Botero (1544-1617) nel 1588 pubblicava "Delle cause della grandezza e magnificanza delle città" un?'operetta di mole esigua ma lucida e penetrante, forse il suo capolavoro; viene elaborata in essa per la prima volta una teoria scientifica sulla dislocazione topografica e sull?'incremento degli agglomerati urbani, che identifica precisi rapporti fra ambiente naturale, risorse economiche e sviluppo demografico. Allegato sin dall?'anno successivo, quale appendice inseparabile, al più ampio trattato "Della ragion di Stato" (dato alla luce nel 1589 da Giolito de Ferrari), l?'aureo opuscolo ne condivise lo straordinario successo editoriale.. L?'opera "Della ragion di Stato" tentava di dare una risposta al problema politico centrale della Controriforma, la crisi aperta dal machiavellismo con il dissociare la politica dalla morale e con il ridurre la religione a strumento di potere. Tuttavia il successo di questo trattato, che dilagò per decenni con frequenti ristampe italiane e versioni in spagnolo, francese, latino e tedesco, non fu dovuto alle poche pagine dottrinali, bensì alla sistematica esposizione di tutta la nuova problematica che lo Stato moderno sorgente portava con sè: esazione fiscale, organizzazione militare, commercio, industria, amministrazione della giustizia, annona, urbanistica; meglio di qualsiasi altra opera di quell?'età, il libro del Botero documenta il tipico trapasso, che allora si operava, dallo Stato patrimoniale di impronta feudale allo Stato di ?"politìa?", fondato sull?'amministrazione oculata, la centralizzazione livellatrice, l?'estinzione progressiva delle cariche ereditarie o venali. In questo orizzonte culturale un posto distinto spetta alle questioni economiche: in tema tributario il Botero sostiene la funzione preminente dell?'imposta rispetto ai cespiti demaniali nel finanziamento della spesa pubblica e la prevalenza della tassazione dei redditi a sgravio delle gabelle sui consumi; inoltre tenta di conciliare il protezionismo delle nascenti manifatture con l?'aspirazione alla liberalizzazione degli scambi e delle vie commerciali..?". Cfr. anche Gamba,1271: ?"Gio. Botero è stato uno de?' pochissimi autori del secolo decimosesto che abbiano trattato di politica e di scienze economiche. Il suo stile è piuttosto trascurato, ma chiaro e disinvolto, e senz?'affettazione di traslati?" - Adams,B,2548 - Bongi,II, pp. 432-33. Leggermente rifilato al margine sup., altrimenti fresco esemplare ben conservato.

      In Venetia, Appresso Domenico Nicolini, 1589.dimostra intorno a questa materia quanto habbiano errato in molte cose. Aggiuntaui una piena dichiaratione alla regola gia data dal famoso Astrologo M. Giovanni Bianchini per trovar col mezo dell'hore l'altezza de' Poli; et appresso un discorso fatto sopra il Moto della Trepidatione dell'Ottava Sfera, opera dignissima & curiosa novamente posta in luce. FIRST EDITION 1589, Italian text, small 4to, approximately 220 x 160 mm, 8¾ x 6¼ inches, author's large pictorial emblem on title page, printer's device on colophon, large decorated or historiated initials, 2 headpieces and a tailpiece, 9 woodcut astronomical diagrams in the text 2 almost full page, and pages of tide tables, leaves: (8), 112, (2) - Address to the Readers by Raimondo (1 page), Errata on 2 pages and colophon on final page, collation: ? - ??4, A - Dd4, 2E6, bound in vellum over board, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Boards very lightly marked and bowing very slightly, small ex libris label on verso front endpaper, pale brown stain to lower margins from title page (where it touches the imprint) to first page of text, fading to nothing, lower margin of O2v faintly marked, leaves Cc2 - - Ee2 very faintly damp stained to fore - edge margins and slighlty affecting text with no loss of legibility, very small chip to fore - edge margin of Cc2, another very small pale stain to edge of lower margin of Cc1 - Ee6, otherwise contents very clean. A very good copy of a rare early book on the ebb and flow of tides plus a brief section on the movement of trepidation of the eighth sphere and another which is a supplementary declaration to the rule of Giovanni Bianchini for finding the altitude or latitude of the poles. Raimondo was an Italian mathematician and scholar born in Verona in 1505 or 1506 (d. 1591?). Little is known of his long life but he wrote on astrology, geomancy, physics and astronomy as well as fluid dynamics. Sotheran's Bibliotheca Chemico - Mathematica, Volume II, 13844, reports a French comment that this Trattato on the tides was Raimondo's best work published at the age of 84, and that it is rare. The ex libris label on the front endpaper is that of Pierre Duhem (1861 ? 1916) a French physicist, mathematician, historian and philosopher of science, who made major contributions to the science of his day, particularly in the fields of hydrodynamics, elasticity, and thermodynamics.

        Novae Coelestium Orbium Theoricae congruentes cum observationibus N. Copernici.

      Venice Damiano Zenario 1589. - First edition of New Theories of the Celestial Orbs Agreeing with the Observations of Copernicus, Magini&#146;s principal astronomical treatise. The work is of interest for the 16th-century reception of Copernicus, whom Magini admired; and although he endorsed the unprecedented accuracy of Copernicus&#146;s calculation of celestial movements he nevertheless publicly retained his belief in geocentrism. His private correspondence, however, leaves no doubt that Magini became a "closet" Copernican (see above). Even so, Magini represents a progressive case of 16th-century "establishment" science, and whether explicitly or not, and whether fairly or not, he is the target in much of Galileo&#146;s more revolutionary embrace of the Copernican system. In this work Magini "took the position that Copernicus had so reformed astronomy that no correction of equal motions, or a very slight one, was now required. For although Copernicus had devised hypotheses which wandered far from verisimilitude, yet they corresponded closely to the phenomena. He, therefore, collated the ideas of Ptolemy and Copernicus, adding new hypotheses of his own where they seemed necessary, and has written an introductory text or theory of the planets along these lines. He asserts that there was a great demand for such a theory of the planets which would abandon the outmoded Alfonsine hypotheses and conform his recent observations without such absurd hypotheses as Copernicus had imagined" (Thorndike VI.56).At the time of the present work, Magini (1555-1617) held one of the two chairs of mathematics at Bologna, to which he had been elected over the young Galileo. This undeserved preference naturally aggravated the already advanced rivalry between the two. Magini was a talented calculator, producing the best ephemerides of his day, and was an accomplished geographer and cartographer. * Adams M-119; Riccardi I.2.65.5; Luigi Campedelli in DSB IX.12-13; Gingerich, "Science in the Age of Copernicus," Harvard Library Bulletin XXVI, no. 4 (1978), no. 42; Thorndike VI.56-9.

Illustratum. Venice: Apud Haeredes Valerii Bonelli, 1589. 414, [2] ff. Main text in parallel columns. Octavo (5-1/2" x 4"). Recent period-style vellum (using material from an old volume), hand-lettered title to spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few minor stains to boards, a few cracks to tect block (binding secure). Woodcut printer device to title page, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Some toning to text, occasional faint dampspotting, light browning and faint dampstaining to some leaves. Early owner signature to title page, interior otherwise clean. A nice copy in an attractive binding. * Later edition. A work of great authority, this popular dictionary was first published in 1559. It went through more than twenty-five editions, with several variations in content, during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. All editions have two principal parts: the fifteenth-century Vocabularius attributed to Jacobus of Erfurt and Nebrija&#39;s Lexicon Iuris Civilis. It is a curious hybrid of late-medieval and renaissance scholarship; the former work is a typical scholastic compilation, the latter is a humanistic work grounded in philology and historical commentary. Nebrija was an important Spanish scholar and educator. Educated at the universities of Salamanca and Bologna, he read widely in law, medicine and theology. His philological work, which included the first Spanish grammar and dictionary, led to the standardization of the language. In 1502 he was a member of a group of scholars gathered by Cardinal Ximenes de Cisneros at Alcala to produce the Complutensian Polyglot Bible. This edition also includes Caccialupi&#39;s Tractatus de Modo Studendi in Utroque Iure, an introductory textbook for law students.

Terminando tutto con le proprie sentenze. Cavate da greci, da latini, et della nostra linua [sic] d'huomini illustri, et sapienti d'ogni stato, grado, et conditione.

      appresso i Gioliti,, in Venetia, 1589 - In-8° (201x146mm), pp. 56, legatura novecentesca in p. pergamena rigida con unghie eseguita a imitazione delle legature antiche. Titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa al dorso. Impresa xilografica con la fenice giolitina al frontespizio, numerosi capilettera istoriati xilograficamente. Antica firma di possesso al margine inferiore del frontespizio. Qualche lieve gora e brunitura. Ottimo esemplare, leggermente ridotto di margini. Terza edizione (la prima è del 1562) di quest'opera doniana dedicata alla memoria e alla comparazione di fatti antichi e moderni. Si tratta di una ristampa fedele, o meglio di una nuova emissione dell'edizione del 1562; "gli eredi di Gabriele in alcune copie ristamparono il primo foglio, ponendovi la data del 1585 e del 1589; segno certo che erano rimaste invendute nei magazzini" (Bongi). Nel trattato mnemonico i capilettera istoriati rappresentano un sistema di immagini di scene mitologiche, in cui ogni lettera corrisponde alla prima lettera del personaggio principale inserito nella scena; l'alfabeto è basato su quello già impiegato da Ludovico Dolce nella sua traduzione delle "Metamorfosi" ovidiane ("Le Trasformationi"), pubblicata l'anno prima dallo stesso "Giolito de'Ferrari". "Si tratta infatti di alfabeti che, secondo le parole del poligrafo collaboratore dei Giolito Ludovico Dolce nella sua opera sulla memorizzazione, "hanno parte di voce", a differenza di quelli costituiti invece di figure che hanno una somiglianza di forme con le lettere stesse. Si potrebbe essere tentati a questo punto di affacciare l'ipotesi che ad inventare le iniziali "parlanti" giolitine possa essere stato Lodovico Dolce, che della casa tipografico-editoriale divenne un vero e proprio redattore. Osta però a tale ipotesi il fatto che la collaborazione del Dolce con il Giolito divenne stabile soltanto nel 1543; che la sua fortunata traduzione in italiano delle Metamorfosi, più volte ristampata, uscì, per i torchi di Giolito, soltanto nel 1555; e che la sua non molto originale opera, già citata, sull'arte della memoria apparve addirittura nel 1562. Potremmo dunque lasciare per intero a Gabriele Giolito, la più rilevante ed importante figura di imprenditore editoriale del tempo, la responsabilità, se non di aver pensato, almeno di aver voluto, nel quadro della sua costante ricerca di soluzioni tecniche volte alla conquista ed all'ampliamento del mercato, la creazione e l'adozione delle iniziali "parlanti" (Franca Petrucci Nardelli, La lettera e l'immagine: le iniziali "parlanti" nella tipografia italiana (secc. XVI-XVIII), Firenze, Olschki, 1991, pp. 17 e sgg.). Cfr. Young, Bibliography of Memory, p. 92. Bongi, II, 149. Gamba, 1373. Haym, Libri rari, p. 372. Adams, D-813. STC Italian Books, 225.

(Sabin 118) A reissue of the 1588 edition.José de Acosta (September/October 1539– February 15, 1600), was a Spanish 16th-century Jesuit missionary and naturalist in Latin America. Born at Medina del Campo in Spain, he became a novice in the Society of Jesus at the age of thirteen at the place of his birth. Four of his brothers successively joined the same order. Before leaving Spain, he was lecturer in theology at Ocana, and in April 1569, was sent to Lima, Peru, where the Jesuits had been established in the proceeding year. At Lima, Acosta again occupied the chair of theology; his fame as an orator had preceded him. In 1571 he went to Cuzco as a visitor of the college of the Jesuits then recently founded. Returning to Lima three years later, to again fill the chair of theology, he was elected provincial in 1576. He founded a number of colleges, among them those of Arequipa, Potosí, Chuquisaca, Panama and La Paz, but met with considerable opposition from the viceroy, Francisco de Toledo, Count of Oropesa. His official duties obliged him to investigate personally a very extensive range of territory, so that he acquired a practical knowledge of the vast province, and of its aboriginal inhabitants. At the provincial council of 1582, at Lima, Acosta played a very important part. Called to Spain by the King in 1585, he was detained in Mexico, where he dedicated himself to studies of the country and people; returning to Europe, he filled the chair of theology at the Roman college in 1594, as well as other important positions. At the time of his death, he was rector of the college at Salamanca. Aside from his publication of the proceedings of the provincial councils of 1567 and 1583, and several works of exclusively theological import, Acosta is best known as the writer of De Natura Novi Orbis, De promulgatione Evangelii apud Barbaros, sive De Procuranda Indorum salute and above all, the Historia natural y moral de las Indias. The first two appeared at Salamanca in 1588, the last at Seville in 1590, and was soon after its publication translated into various languages. It is chiefly the Historia natural y moral that has established the reputation of Acosta. In a form more concise than that employed by his predecessors, Francisco Lopez de Gómara and Oviedo, he treated the natural and philosophic history of the New World from a broader point of view. In it, more than a century before Europeans learned of the Bering Strait, Acosta hypothesized that Latin America's indigenous peoples had migrated from Asia to Latin America. He also divided them into three barbarian categories. The Historia also described Inca and Aztec customs and history, as well as other information such as farming practices.Condition:iii - xvi, 639-640 pages skillfully repaired affecting some text, repaired worm hole affecting text throughout, endpapers renewed, Provenance: near contemporary annotation on page iii.

        TRATTATO UTILISSIMO ET PARTICOLARISSIMO DEL FLUSSO & RIFLUSSO DEL MARE, del Signor Annibale Raimondo gentilhuomo Veronese, & Eccellentiss. Matematico. Il quale introducendo l&#39;opinione d&#39;altri illustri scrittori,

      In Venetia, Appresso Domenico Nicolini, 1589.. dimostra intorno a questa materia quanto habbiano errato in molte cose. Aggiuntaui una piena dichiaratione alla regola gia data dal famoso Astrologo M. Giovanni Bianchini per trovar col mezo dell&#39;hore l&#39;altezza de&#39; Poli; et appresso un discorso fatto sopra il Moto della Trepidatione dell&#39;Ottava Sfera, opera dignissima & curiosa novamente posta in luce. FIRST EDITION 1589, Italian text, small 4to, approximately 220 x 160 mm, 8¾ x 6¼ inches, author&#39;s large pictorial emblem on title page, printer&#39;s device on colophon, large decorated or historiated initials, 2 headpieces and a tailpiece, 9 woodcut astronomical diagrams in the text 2 almost full page, and pages of tide tables, leaves: (8), 112, (2) - Address to the Readers by Raimondo (1 page), Errata on 2 pages and colophon on final page, collation: &#134;-&#134;&#134;4, A-Dd4, 2E6, bound in vellum over board, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Boards very lightly marked and bowing very slightly, small ex libris label on verso front endpaper, pale brown stain to lower margins from title page (where it touches the imprint) to first page of text, fading to nothing, lower margin of O2v faintly marked, leaves Cc2--Ee2 very faintly damp stained to fore-edge margins and slighlty affecting text with no loss of legibility, very small chip to fore-edge margin of Cc2, another very small pale stain to edge of lower margin of Cc1-Ee6, otherwise contents very clean. A very good copy of a rare early book on the ebb and flow of tides plus a brief section on the movement of trepidation of the eighth sphere and another which is a supplementary declaration to the rule of Giovanni Bianchini for finding the altitude or latitude of the poles. Raimondo was an Italian mathematician and scholar born in Verona in 1505 or 1506 (d. 1591?). Little is known of his long life but he wrote on astrology, geomancy, physics and astronomy as well as fluid dynamics. Sotheran&#39;s Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica, Volume II, 13844, reports a French comment that this Trattato on the tides was Raimondo&#39;s best work published at the age of 84, and that it is rare. The ex libris label on the front endpaper is that of Pierre Duhem (1861 &#150; 1916) a French physicist, mathematician, historian and philosopher of science, who made major contributions to the science of his day, particularly in the fields of hydrodynamics, elasticity, and thermodynamics.

Rare first edition of the account of the charting voyage by Maerten Gerritsz. Vries (1589-1646) to the North of Japan, together with the popular account of a Dutch West India Company voyage to Chile under Hendrik Brouwer (1581-1643). Another edition was published by Jan Jacobsz. Bouman circa 1650/60, followed by two editions in French of Vries's part only in 1673 and 1732. An edition based on the original manuscript of Vries's account was published in 1858 by Frederik Muller.Brouwer, one of the directors of the Dutch West India Company, acted as the commander of a fleet of six ships, specially sent to the western coast of South America to activate the trade between the Dutch and the natives, who were at the time in bad humor with the Spaniards. During this voyage, which resulted in the first place in a better knowledge of that coast, Brouwer died at Chiloe and was buried at Valdivia in August 1643. After his death the command fell to Elias Herckmans, who occupied an important post in Brazil. Appended to that journal is the very important account of a charting voyage to Japan. That same year (1643) Maerten Gerritsz. Vries, employed by the Dutch East India Company, was ordered to explore and chart the northernmost islands of Japan. He visited Hokkaido (Yezo) and Sakhalin, discovered the islands Iturup and Urup and gave his name to the strait between those islands. La Pérouse considered him one of the most eminent seafarers of his time. Fine copy of a rare work with accounts of two Dutch voyages to Chile and Japan.

        Maris Pacifici (quod vulgo Mar del Zur)

      Antwerp: Plantin, 1589. Engraved map, 435 x 560 mm., original hand-colouring, small tear with old paper repair to original central fold, some toning, a few marks and stains, but in very good condition; framed. The first printed map devoted to the Pacific. A very good copy, with original hand-colouring, of the first printed map to be devoted solely to the Pacific. The map includes a vast southern continent, which stretches from a peak right below New Guinea all the way to connect with the southern shores of the Straits of Magellan. The map has many firsts: it is the first to name North and South America separately, and the first to shift the islands of New Guinea and Japan away from the American coast, thus stretching the Pacific into a more realistic shape. The map is also particularly good regarding Spanish America, with interesting details of the entire west coast of South America, Central America, California, and stretching north towards what is now Alaska. The width of America has been considerably corrected, so that it is now quite narrow across the Tropic of Capricorn; as Wagner points out, this has the effect of moving the peninsula of California, correctly, to the east. Ortelius used Spanish and Portuguese manuscript maps to correct many contemporary misconceptions about the Americas, although it remains unclear what his sources were for some of the other corrections. The absence of inland detail such as topographic features and the names of towns may reflect the Flemish cartographer&#39;s reliance upon portolan charts for inspiration. Yet it is rich in coastal detail, and especially the treatment of the west coast of the Americas and the islands of east Asia. The southern continent that fills the lower portion of the map incorporates Tierra del Fuego, but otherwise remains vast and mysterious. Ortelius celebrates the circumnavigation of Magellan with a beautiful and highly detailed engraving of his galleon Victoria situated off the coast of Peru, and the hypothetical southern land is named for the great circumnavigator but noted as still unexplored, "Terra Australis sive Magellanica nondum detecta". See also catalogue number xx for Ortelius&#39; map of South-east Asia.
