Y el valenciano Salvà: "Primera edición desconocida para Nicolás Antonio (Bibliotheca Hispana) =Entre los siglos XV y XVIII se denominó emblema (también empresa, jeroglífico o divisa) a "lo que está puesto dentro o encerrado", a una imagen enigmática provista de una frase o leyenda que ayudaba a descifrar un oculto sentido moral que se recogía más abajo en verso o prosa. En los inicios del género y durante el siglo XVI, lo que interesó a los emblemistas fue, sobre todo, el aspecto utilitario y didáctico del emblema. El poder suasorio de las imágenes las convertía en una herramienta didáctica o de propaganda para enseñar el camino de la virtud. Para una persona culta de nuestro Siglo de Oro el ingenio de que tenía que hacer alarde le obligaba al uso constante de referencias y alusiones simbólicas. =Feliciano Ramírez de Arellano, escritor e historiador, nace en Cádiz en 1826.

(Sabin 118) A reissue of the 1588 edition. Jose 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, Potosi, 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. Call … [Click Below for Full Description]

[California Manuscripts]:
[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.

It is in poor condition - the front board is missing and the back board is detached. 25% of the spine is missing. The pages are browned and there is crinkling to the early and later pages due to the absence of the protective boards. There is some worm damage to final leaves, not affecting the text and someone has practised decorative writing - again on the final leaves and not affecting the text. It measures 11.5 x 8 cm and has 431 pages plus an index. We can find no reference to a 1589 copy, although Seneca's plays were very popular in that period.

Paracelsus; Johannem Huserum Brisgoium
Conrad Waldkirch c. 1589., Basel. Rebacked skillfully saving late 18th-century marble boards, recent ¼ calf, spine in six compartments of raised bands and blind-tooled floral motifs, gilt text on two, three and six. , Pagination jumps from p. 53 to 56 in the third book with no loss to text or variation in foliation.This is a collection of three books written by the scientist and philosopher Paracelsus (or Phillippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, 1493-1541), and edited by Johann Huser. In Germany, Paracelsus is known as the father of toxicology, having coined the German equivalent of the phrase, ?The dose makes the poison.? He delved much into astrology and alchemy, and gave the name ?zink? to the element known today as ?zinc? He also was the first academic to suggest the existence of an ?unconscious? mind. He often disagreed with his contemporaries and was eventually banished from Basel, where he had served as the university?s chair of medicine. The Cambridge History of Science states: ?The reaction to Paracelsus was not one of immediate appreciation? During the 1560s and 1570s, however, the German followers ? began to publish his works. This publishing effort reached a climax in the 1590s with the monumental collection of Paracelsus?s works edited by Johann Huser, entitled ?Bücher und Schrifften? (Books and Writings)? (506). , Size : Small thick 4to., With in-text woodblock shields. Titles in red and black inks., Volume : Three books in one., References : Porter, Roy, Katharine Park, and Lorraine Daston.

California Manuscripts]:
[Various places. -1774, but all copied in Seville in 1884]. 1589 - [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.

MAGINI, Giovanni Antonio
Venice: Damiano Zenario, 1589. * 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.. First edition of New Theories of the Celestial Orbs Agreeing with the Observations of Copernicus, Magini’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’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’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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

In contemporary dark-brown leather-covered boards. Woodcut printer’s device to title, ink stamp of Prior Park to title and margins of a few other ff. Occasional light water-staining to lower margins, heavier towards end, later panelled calf, repaired. [Adams P337]. / Folio. Pp. 6 p.l., [34] index, [1] blank, 977 / A very nice, tight and clean copy. Digital photographs may be available on request. //Matthew Paris (c. 1200 – 1259) was a Benedictine monk, English chronicler, artist in illuminated manuscripts and cartographer, based at St Albans Abbey in Hertfordshire. He wrote (as both author and scribe) a number of works, mostly historical, which he illuminated himself, typically in drawings partly coloured with watercolour washes, sometimes called "tinted drawings". Some were written in Latin, some in Anglo-Norman or French verse. In spite of his surname, and of his knowledge of the French language, he was of English birth but may have studied at Paris in his youth after early education at the St Albans Abbey School (now St Albans School). The first we know of him (from his own writings) is that he was admitted as a monk at St Albans in 1217. It is on the assumption that he was in his teens on admission that his birth date is estimated; some scholars suspect he may have been ten years or older. Many monks only entered monastic life after pursuing a career in the world outside. He was clearly at ease wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

DELLA PORTA, Giovanni Battista
Naples: Orazio Salviani,, 1589. Folio (296 × 217 mm). Nineteenth-century quarter calf, marbled sides, vellum tips. Woodcut title border incorporating lynx at head, author's portrait on verso, numberous woodcut illustrations and diagrams in text. Joints skilfully restored, neatly relined to style, boards rubbed, a few tiny holes, mostly marginal, some light browning and staining as usual with this paper stock, still a very good copy. First edition of the complete text in twenty books of Della Porta's major work. Giambattista della Porta (1538–1615) is one of the most interesting figures of early modern science. Like Galileo, who was Della Porta's immediate successor as a member of the select scientific society, the Accademia dei Lincei, Della Porta opposed the Aristotelian science that dominated the universities of Renaissance Europe. The Aristotelians proposed a qualitative explanation of the way Nature behaved, and could offer no explanation for those "occult qualities" or "jokes of nature" which were apparent exceptions to nature's regularities. In contrast, Della Porta, the German alchemist Paracelsus, Girolamo Cardano and other 16th-century anti-Aristotelians focused their attention on natural particulars: the way Nature behaved in specific instances, often those that seemed to reveal her most subtle workings. They recognized that a new science would have to account, somehow, for these exceptions to the way the world normally worked. Originally published in Naples in 1558 in four books, Natural Magic was revised and considerably expanded throughout … [Click Below for Full Description]
