Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine title, stained, upper cover gnawed.*** first edition of a minutely detailed vernacular guide to the intricacies of Mass and religious practice, intended for rural and less educated priests and those without mentors to teach them the do's and don't's of orthodox Catholicism.

Encyclopaedic in scope, the lengthy treatise provides detailed instructions for a wide range of situations: which prayer to use when, how to hold one's hands when praying, when and how to kneel, preparation of the priest for Mass, ritual gestures, how to take Confession, when, where, and how to say the Credo, what kind of voice to use in the different parts of Mass (some parts are to be said "secretly"), dates of and instructions for every festival of the year, occasions and rituals for different kinds of Mass, processions and their purpose, the functions and roles of Deacons, Subdeacons, Acolytes, and so on.

1589. HUGE FOLIO edited by Famous CIPHER Vigenere "If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it!" - Julius Caesar A rare collection of civil war histories and Julius Caesar war commentaries by Blaise de Vigenere. Vigenere is most remembered for his cipher, called the 'Vigenere cipher', which was a method for encrypting text using a series of Caesar ciphers. Julius Caesar's war commentaries are some of the most prolific military writings! While not specifically known for his writing, Julius Caesar wrote this book which would become a mainstay in the Latin literature canon. It focuses on first-hand account of Julius Caesar in the Callic wars, but it was written as though from a third-person view. This book is incredibly illustrated with in-text engravings on wood depicting animals, city views, and maps as described by Julius Caesar. It also includes Pliny's 'Eloges de Cesar', 'Abregez de Flore by Florus, and 'Sommaire d'Eutrope' by Eutropius. [Attributes: First Edition]

PORTA, Giambattista della
1589. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. EXCEEDINGLY RARE & IMPORTANT Folio Masterpiece One of the most impressive occult works on natural magic! "Magiae Naturalis" by Giambattista della Porta covers a variety of subjects including occult philosophy, astrology, alchemy, mathematics, and meteorology. It was one of the first works of 'popular science' and indeed was popular - it was continually reprinted in various languages through the mid-17th-century! This 1589 Naples edition is incredibly important in that it added new observations that were not previous published. While the earlier editions focused more on ancient world learning of that of Pliny, this edition includes "twenty books" on geology, optics, poison, cooking, metallurgy, magnets, cosmetics and perfume, gunpowder, and invisible writing! In the preface of the 1658 English edition, Porta states, "A certain Frenchman in his Book called 'Daemonomania,' Tearms me a Magician, a Conjurer, and thinks this Book of mine, long since Printed, worthy to be burnt, because I have written the Fairies Oyntment, which I set forth oreily in detestation of the frauds of Divels and Witches; That which comes by Nature is abused by their superstition, which I borrowed from the Books of the most commendable Divines...I pas over other men of the same temper, who affirm that I a Witch and a Conjurer, whereas I never write here nor elsewhere, what is not contained within the bounds of Nature."

Bookplate of Frédéric and Anne Max to front pastedown. A very good copy, with edges uncut in an elegant binding, of this remarkable work on witchcraft by Leonardo Vairo (1523-1603), a Benedictine monk and bishop of Pozzuoli. This is the second edition, originally published in Latin and French in 1583, and the first Aldine. It is entirely devoted to ‘fascinum’ (‘fascination’ or ‘charm’), a ‘pernicious quality summoned through intense imagination, sight, touch, voice, together or separately, as well as the observation of the sky, or inflicted through hate or love’. With the help of authorities like Aristoteles, Plutarch and Heliodorus, Vairo addresses the nature of fascination caused by external action (moral) or inherent qualities (natural). The work seeks to set apart the natural from the supernatural whilst discussing subjects like monstrous births, werewolves, the sabbath, the nature of daemonic powers, ba … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eytzinger, Michael von.
bey Godtfridt von Kempen. Rare and early precursor to modern newspapers: Catholic Michael von Eytzinger (a.k.a., Aitzing, Eyzinger, or Eitzing, 1530-98), an Austrian nobleman, scholar, and creator of the genealogical numbering system Ahnentafel (also known as the Eytzinger Method), first began his Relatio historica, which is => considered to be the first printed historiographical periodical, in 1580. The present example, organized chronologically with an index organized by month, covers European events from the start of 1589 through September 19th of the same year, and mainly focuses on the various religious wars related to the Reformation, political gossip, and the adventures of Dutch commander Maartin Schenck van Nydeggen. The work also contains a => full-page elegy for notable printer Christopher Plantin. The text is printed on inexpensive paper in single columns using black letter with some roman type, begins with a decorative initial, and ends with a tailpiece. Copies of any issue in this ephemeral series are rather uncommon, with searches of OCLC, COPAC, and NUC revealing only one copy of this edition held by a U.S. institution. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

MAGINI Giovanni Antonio  (1555-1617)
EX OFFICINA DAMIANI ZENARIJ, 1589. Legatura rimontata con pergamena antica, guardie sostituite; tagli spruzzati policromi. 14 carte non numerate, compreso magnifico frontespizio figurato con titolo iscritto all'interno di allegoria, marca della salamandra al bordo inferiore e antica nota di possesso "Dr. Joseph Maria Modica di Oliveto", segue la dedica a Ioanni Iacobo Tonialo Veronensi, lettera di Magini e pagina di errata; 115 carte numerate; mancanza dell'ultima carta, bianca. All'interno, numerose illustrazioni silografiche di diagrammi e schemi. PRIMA RARA EDIZIONE di questo importante trattato sul cosmo. Magini propose un modello alternativo di undici sfere rotanti, basato sulle osservazioni di Copernico ma mantenendo una teoria geocentrica anti-copernicana. Queste teorie lo portarono ad avere frequenti conflitti con Galileo. Cfr. Offenbacher, 26/159 "., professor of mathematics at Bologna, an outstanding astronomer and a correspondent of Tycho Brahe and Kepler. He made a thorough study of the writings of Copernicus whose calculations of the celestial movements he considered far more exact than those of his predecessors. However, as he could not accept Copernicus' theory of the movement of the earth, he collated the ideas of Ptolemy and Copernicus, adding new hypotheses of his own where they seemed necessary and wrote his theory of the planets along these lines.". Esemplare in discrete condizioni pur se in bella e fresca impressione, frontespizio con il bordo interno lievemente attaccato alla carta di guardia; corto al margine superiore con i primi quinterni posizionat … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOTERO, Giovanni
Gioliti, 1589. Small 4to, pp. [xvi], 367, [1]; with woodcut printer s device on title and initials in the text; ink ownership inscription to recto of title covered with paper slips; some light staining to upper margin and to lower outer corner throughout, stronger in places, but still a good, crisp copy in contemporary limp vellum, spine direct lettered in ink, evidence of rodent damage to foot of spine and upper outer corner, ties lacking. FIRST EDITION OF A MASTERPIECE IN THE HISTORY OF ECONOMICS: THE MALTHUSIAN PRINCIPLE OF POPULATION TENDING TO INCREASE BEYOND ANY ASSIGNABLE LIMIT FULLY DEVELOPED IN 1589. Divested of nonessentials, the "Malthusian" Principle of Population sprang fully developed from the brain of Botero in 1589: populations tend to increase, beyond any assignable limit, to the full extent made possible by human fecundity (the virtus generativa of the Latin translation); the means of subsistence, on the contrary, and the possibilities of increasing them (the virtus nutritiva) are definitely limited and therefore impose a limit on that increase, the only one there is; this limit asserts itself through want, which will induce people to refrain from marrying (Malthus negative check, prudential check, "moral restraint") unless numbers are periodically reduced by wars, pestilence, and so on (Malthus positive check). This path-breaking performance the only performance in the whole history of the theory of population to deserve any credit at all came much before the time in which its message could have spread: it was practically lost in the populationist wave of … [Click Below for Full Description]

La data "1589" è vergata al margine superiore del frontespizio. FIRST EDITION of these ordinances regulating the manufacture and trade of silk in the territory of Bologna, at that time belonging to the States of the Church. Indeed, among Sixtus's V (Felice Peretti, 1521-1590), first concerns after assuming the papacy, was to optimize industry and trade in the Pa- pal States. In the bull Cum sicut accepimus (May 28, 1586 – Bullarium Romanum, Turin, 1863, vol. VIII, no. XLIX, pp. 711-719) he ordered that mulberry trees had to be planted throughout the States of the Church in all gardens and vineyards, in every field and wood, over all hills and in every valley, whenev- er no corn was growing (cf. G. Tomasetti, L'arte della seta sotto Sisto V in Roma, in: "Studi e documenti di storia e diritto", 2, 1881, p. 145). Sixtus V clearly saw the importance and the advantages giving sup- port to the silk industry and trade, which contributed in no small share to the well-being and prosperity of a considerable portion of the working classes of the Papal States. Bologna became a leading silk producer starting in the 15thcentury thanks to technological and process innovations that brought it to prominence on international markets.

BODINO GIO. (Jean Bodin)
Presso Aldo, 1589. In-4°, pp. (52), 419, segnatura, a10 b-c8 A-2B8 2C10, frontespizio con ancora aldina, iniziali e fregi xilografici. Carattere Corsivo in ebraico, greco e romano. Legatura in piena pergamena mutaPiccolo lavoro di tarlo all'angolo interno inferiore bianco da pag. 280 a 338, senza intaccare il testo. Buon esemplare fresco. Scritta in risposta al De praestigiis daemonum (1563) di Johann Wier, confutava sistematicamente le tesi ivi contenute. Qui Wier, discepolo del medico ed esoterista Agrippa von Nettesheim, riteneva che le credenze in merito al potere delle streghe derivassero da una forma di suggestione: suggestione che coinvolgeva tanto le sedicenti streghe quanto la società che, avallando il loro isterismo, vi attribuiva tale qualifica. Secondo Wier, che era oltretutto un medico, le facoltà convenzionalmente riferite alle streghe erano anche frutto delle sostanze allucinogene presenti negli unguenti che le donne si spalmavano sul corpo. A ciò si aggiungeva lo stato di profondo eccitamento suscitato dai rituali cui prendevano parte, nonché l'idea stessa di fare qualcosa di straordinario e di proibito. Del resto Wier, pur credendo nei fenomeni di possessione diabolica, era convinto che il potere dei demoni si applicasse agli indemoniati senza che essi ne usufruissero. In sostanza le streghe, se pervertite dal maligno, erano comunque incapaci di compiere sortilegi, quindi era perfettamente inutile mandarle al rogo. Nell'ottica di Wier la caccia alle streghe risultava priva di fondamento sia sul piano religioso che su quello giuridico, andando a colpire pers … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lyon, (lion moucheté), 1589. (42) SS., 2222 Spp. Mit Druckermarke am Titel. Lederband der Zeit auf 5 Doppelbünden mit goldgepr. floraler Rückenverzierung sowie rotem Rückenschildchen. Folio. Große und vollständige Ausgabe der Digestum Vetum mit der Glosse des Accursius und Denis Godefroys (1549-1622) Zusätzen. Das Titelblatt ziert jene berühmte Druckermarke, welche einen fliegenumschwirrten Löwen mit dem Spruch "De forti dulcendo" zeigt. Dieser ging als "lion moucheté" in die Geschichte ein. Die Digesten, das juristische Kernstück des Corpus Iuris Civilis, werden seit dem Mittelalter unterteilt in drei Teile: Digestum Vetus, Infortitum und Digestum Novum. Der Inhalt ist ein Flickenteppich, der von einer Gesetzeskommission aus einer grossen Masse von juristischen Schriften des 1. bis 2. Jhs. zusammengestellt worden ist. Die Ende des 11. Jhs. in Bologna zugrundegelegte Handschrift, die Vulgata oder "Littera Bononiensis", bestimmte den Rechtsunterricht und die Rechtspraxis bis Mitte des 16. Jhs. Im Jahre 1553 wurde eine weitere archetypische Handschrift der Pandekten ediert, die unter dem Namen "Littera Florentina" rechtshistorische Bedeutung erlangte. Der Druck des Corpus war ein umkämpfter Markt: Zunächst war Venedig beherrschend, wurde jedoch zu Beginn des 16. Jhs. von Lyon abgelöst. - Am Titel zeitgenöss. hs.
