        Exercitationes philosophicæ quibus universa fere discutitur philosophia theoretica, et plurima ac præcipua Peripateticorum dogmata evertuntur ... cum gemino indice.[Leyden]: in bibliopolio Commeliniano sumptibus viduae Joannis Comelini, 1620.

      First edition, extremely rare, of one of the earliest modern works on atomism. "Gorlaeus is counted among the founders of modern atomism, which he proposed as an alternative to Aristotelian matter theory. Because of his notion of atomic compounds, he is also regarded as a contributor to the evolution of chemistry" (DSB). "When David Gorlaeus (1591-1612) passed away at 21 years of age, he left behind two highly innovative manuscripts. Once they were published [as the present work, and as <i>Idea physicae</i> (1610), his work had a remarkable impact on the evolution of seventeenth-century thought. However, as his identity was unknown, divergent interpretations of their meaning quickly sprang up. Seventeenth-century readers understood him as an anti-Aristotelian thinker and as a precursor of Descartes. Twentieth-century historians depicted him as an atomist, natural scientist and even as a chemist. And yet, when Gorlaeus died, he was a beginning student in theology. His thought must in fact be placed at the intersection between philosophy, the nascent natural sciences, and theology" (Lüthy). This is a very rare book. In his review of Lüthy's book in 2012, Henri Krop wrote: "until now Gorlaeus's life and ideas have remained basically unknown because both his elaborate <i>Exercitationes philosophicae</i> and his <i>Idea physicae</i> are extremely rare and copies were unavailable in Dutch public libraries. (However since 1986 the libraries of both Leiden and Leeuwarden have acquired copies of the former.)" We have been unable to locate any copies in auction records.<br/><br/> "Gorlaeus's atomism, which took center stage in his <i>Idea physicae</i>, is however more fully embedded in the <i>Exercitationes philosophicae</i>. There, philosophy is defined as "the naked knowledge of entities" and thus identified with ontology. Each discipline, wrote Gorlaeus, tackles one type of entity, whereby physics deals with natural entities. His ontology distinguishes between self-subsisting entities (<i>entia per se</i>), which are defined as numerically unique, fully existing, unchanging, and indivisible, and the accidental compositions (<i>entia per accidens</i>) that are brought about when several <i>entia per se</i> gather. This view of reality is essentially atomistic, although primarily in a metaphysical sense. By denying universals and allowing only for individuals, it is also heavily indebted to medieval nominalism.. 8vo (154 x 89 mm), pp. [xxviii], 352.

        Brevis Narratio eorum quae in florida Americae provi[n]cia Gallis acciderunt ... quae est seconda pars Americae

      Frankfurt: Theodor De Bry, 1591. Folio. (13 1/2 x 9 5/8 inches). Engraved title, engraved section title, folding engraved map "Florida Americae Provinciae ... descriptio", 42 plates after Le Moyne with letterpress titling above and text beneath, 2 engraved illustrations. Contemporary limp vellum, cloth ties, contained within a modern morocco backed cloth box. A fine wide-margined copy of the first Latin edition of a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's Native Americans and a very important map of Florida. With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's Virginia, De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. These first two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors. The text of the Brevis narratio... describes the earliest French settlements of what are now portions of the United States and are here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolours by a member of the expedition to the New World. To most of the Old World, this work presented the first accurate eyewitness depiction and account of Native Americans. In the mid-1560s two French expeditions led by Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière sought to establish a Hugenot settlement in Florida. Among those accompanying Laudonnière was Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues: born in Dieppe, France in about 1533, he was appointed artist to the expedition which sailed in April 1564. Arguably the first western artist to visit the New World, Le Moyne recorded the scenery of Florida and the lives of the Timucua Indians in great detail, as well as charting the coastline of Florida and much of present-day South Carolina. Unfortunately, the nascent French colony was seen as a threat by the Spanish, the dominant European power in the region, and in September 1565 a force led by Pedro Menendez massacred the French colonists at Fort Caroline. Le Moyne and several others, however, made a miraculous escape. The story of their struggles was not published until 1588, when, at the instigation of Richard Hakluyt, Laudonnière's journal was published in Paris. Later that year, master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London, and met with Le Moyne in an unsuccessful attempt to obtain illustrations of the region to accompany a new edition of Laudonnière's journal. Following Le Moyne's death the following year, De Bry returned to London and purchased the watercolours from his widow. It was on this trip to London that De Bry met Hakluyt, who informed him of the British expeditions to Virginia, shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolours from the expedition and suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White and Laudonnière/Le Moyne. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the former in Latin, German, French and English; the following year he published the latter in Latin and German, presumably having found that there was only a small market for the other languages. Le Moyne's extraordinary illustrations of the Florida Indians, which appear on forty-two leaves of this work in their first published form, rank with those of John White as the best visual record of American Indians before the 19th century. They show all aspects of Indian life, including settlements, ceremonies, wars, agriculture, hunting, and preparation of food. They also show scenes of the French settlement and their involvement with the Indians. These images were widely copied for centuries, and many later supposedly original illustrations of American Indians are actually copies of Le Moyne's illustrations. A full list of the plates appears in Church. The map, which appeared for the first time with this text, is one of the most elaborate of the Florida peninsula to appear in the 16th century, giving the names assigned by the French and Spanish. Cumming provides an elaborate description, and John Matthew Baxter describes it as "…the most remarkable and important map, which has been preserved from the sixteenth century maps, of that part of the East Coast which lies between Cape Hatteras and Cape Florida … [It is] the first French map to show Florida … [and is] considered the most important map of Florida." Some copies of this first Latin edition include a leaf bound after the last of the plates which includes a colophon with the same wording as the final colophon -- it is not present in this copy, but Sabin notes that it is only found in "some copies."

        [Le Moyne's Florida] Der Ander Theyl der Newlich erfundenen Landtschafft Americæ

      Frankfurt: bey Johann Feyerabendt, 1591. Folio. (13 x 9 inches). Title pages to both the text and the plates with pasted on paper panels bearing the titles, the title page to the text with an additional small slip with the publishing details in German, all within an engraved surround (as issued), engraved arms on dedication leaf, final blank O6. 1 folding engraved map [Burden 79], 43 half-page engraved illustrations (42 after Le Moyne), 7 woodcut headpieces, all finely hand coloured by a contemporary hand. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century French red morocco, covers with triple gilt fillet border, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt hatching, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration of small tools around a central flower-spray tool, marbled endpapers, red stained edges A rare contemporary hand-coloured copy of the De Bry first edition in German of Le Moyne's Florida: the first eyewitness pictorial record of the region. Copies with contemporary hand-colouring are of the utmost rarity and were no doubt intended for the highest echelons of society, either as commissions or gifts.

Sabin writes that according to the Russian prince Serge Sobolewski, the noted collector of De Bry whose voluminous collection was purchased by James Lenox and is now at the New York Public Library, the German editions were "made with more care and better typographical arrangement than the Latin." In addition, the German-language editions of Le Moyne are considerably more scarce than the Latin. The contemporary hand colouring of this copy is extraordinary and of the utmost rarity. Le Moyne's Florida is a monument of early Americana and among the earliest and greatest of all illustrated works depicting Native Americans in the United States. Cf. Brunet I, 1320; Burden Mapping of North America 79; Church 179; Cumming & De Vorsey 14; cf. Sabin 8784; cf. Schwartz & Ehrenberg pp.64-7.

        Hand Colored Engraving from a German Language Edition of Le Moyne's Brevis narratio [ca. 1591 from De Bry's "Grand Voyages to the Americas"]: Sacrifice of the first-born, plate XXXIV

      1591. Very Good Condition. A single sheet from an early German edition of Le Moyne, likely the first German edition published in 1591, the year after the Latin. The engraving depicts the (almost certainly spurious) sacrifice of the first born son that Laudonnière (René Goulaine de Laudonnière c. 1529-1574) claimed to have witnessed among the indigenous people of Florida. Fine contemporary or early hand coloring, a few minor stains, browning, etc, worming in the inner margin, old paper repairs to the bottom left and right with loss of text. The ceremony depicts the mother morning in front of a tree stump while other women dance and the child is offered up to the king - all as described by Laudonnière. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Americana; Exploration. Inventory No: 045842.

First edition of the biography of the famous abbess and reformer of Port-Royal, Mother Angélique de Sainte Magdelaine Arnauld (1591-1661) and notes on the history of Port-Royal, Maubuisson and other monasteries by her niece Angélique de Saint Jean Arnauld d'Andilly (1624-1684). Together with notes on her own life and the events at Port-Royal during the years she was abbess there. Angélique de Sainte Magdelaine Arnauld is famous for having reformed the Abbey of Port-Royal and other Cistercian abbeys such as Maubuisson in such a way that her monastery, of which she was abbess from an early age on, could become the centre of Jansenism in France. The many difficulties and even prosecutions which were the result of these reforms, are described in a very lively manner. These accounts form a very important source for the history of Port-Royal, frequently cited by the historiographer of the reform movement of Port-Royal, Sainte-Beuve. Blaise Pascal was one of her admirers.With an owner's inscription (Petri Dupré, 1770) and a library stamp of the Paters Assumptionists (Heide Huis) at Nijmegen. A good copy.

Elaborate gilt borders to boards. With 149 large woodcut-illustrations in text.

First leaf also with four Waqf stamp [thereby indicating the authentication of the Arab translation]. Previous owner's name to front free end-paper: "Alessio Dra Saggeto / en Aleppo 1871" Occassional light brownspotting throughout and a few leaves evenly browned. Small wormhole to top of Pp. 89-92, not affecting text. A tear to Pp. 251-252, not affecting text. Professional repair to colophone. Corners bumped. Bilungial Arabian-Latin text throughout [Except for colophone with text only in Latin]. A fine copy. Pp. 9-462, (2) [including the 149 inter-text illustrations] (i.e. complete).. The rare editio princeps of the Arabic translation of the New Testament (bilingual with text in both Latin and Arabic), beautifully illustrated with 149 woodcut illustrations in the text. This work constitutes the very first printing by the Typographia Medicea-press, a printing-house set up by Pope Gregor XIII and Cardinal Ferdinando de 'Medici in order to promote and distribute Christian scriptures to the East and the book is considered the first successful printing of Arabic. Two issues of the work were printed, presumably simultaneously: "The more common is the Arabic-only text, which was printed in an edition of 4,000. [The present copy] is one of 3,000 printed with interlinear text in Arabic and Latin" (Duke University Magazine). The Arab-only edition states 1590 on the title-page "but 1591 in the subscription: to some of the copies is annexed a Latin translation" (Michaelis, "Introduction to the New Testament"). "Its first great Arabic publication was this edition of the Gospels, bearing the date 1590 on the title page, and 1591 at the end. Two versions appeared, one solely in Arabic and one with an interlinear Latin translation." (Library of Congress). Also British Library records this as "Editio princeps of the Gospels in Arabic" (OCLC: 6048476)Brunet lists that some of the bilingual copies were published with a preliminary leaf stating: "Sanctum Dei evangelium arab.-lat.". There are, however, no known copies with this alleged half-title and it was most like never published (OCLC: 505274823).The work was edited by Giovanni Battista Raimondi (1536-1614), a renowned Orientalist and professor of mathematics at the College of the Sapienza in Rome. Raimondi had travelled extensively in the Middle East and had thorough knowledge of Arabic, Armenian, Syrian and Hebrew. He is, however, most famous for being the editor at the Typographia Medicea-press and together with French engraver Robert Granjon (who also created the Arabic typography set in the present work) "bettered all previous attempts [to print in Arabic] in Europe, and would remain unsurpassed long after the press had closed. (Boogert, "Medici Oriental Press, Rome 1584-1614")"Antonio Tempesta, the engraver (cut bý Leonardo Parasole), had studied under Santi di Tito and Joannes Stradanus at the Accademia del Disegno in Florence (later working with Stradanus and Vasari on the interior decoration of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence), before travelling to Rome, where he executed various commissions, including frescos for Pope Gregory XIII in the Vatican and decorations for the Villa Farnese. Simultaneously with his frescos and panel paintings, he executed a large number of engravings. The illustrations for the present work are remarkable examples of Tempesta's work, noteworthy for their clear composition and narrative of the episodes depicted. Despite the quality of the prints made, the press never became an economic success and it went bankrupt in 1610. Scholars have noticed that presenting a work with beautiful scriptural illustrations, as the present, to Arabic-speaking Muslims, when Islam forbids religious illustration, showed little understanding of the culture and almost certainly hindered Pope Gregory XIII's missionary efforts."The press was not only an intellectual enterprise; it was also a commercial one. Raimondi clearly hoped to sell his books in the East, rather than the West, because the selection of the works he produced showed little consideration with the type of material European scholars in this period needed. While the works failed to sell in the Ottoman Empire, however, they did significantly stimulate the study of the Middle East in Europe.Ferdinando de' Medici had ordered Raimondi to print 'all available Arabic books on permissible human sciences which had no religious content in order to introduce the art of printing to the Mohamedan community.' Only more than a century after the Medici Press in Rome had closed, did it finally have the envisaged impact in the Levant; Ibrahim Müteferrika, the first Muslim printer, referring to it in his plea to the sultan to allow him to open his own printing house at Istanbul, which happened in 1729." (Boogert, "Medici Oriental Press, Rome 1584-1614").This copy was bought by Alessio Dra Segetto in Aleppo, Syria in 1871 and has five Waqf stamp.

      Getruckt zu Basel : Durch Conrad Waldkirch, 1591-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Acceptable. Vol. 10 of the works of Paracelsus (opera), this volume is primarily devoted to alchemy, astrology and magic. Rebound in circa 17th century leather. Title in red and black.

Numerous woodcut diagrams of sigils and zodiac signs. Collation in three parts: 492 pages + 2 page table; Appendix, pp. 1-138 and 225-276 [lacking pages 139-224 of appendix] + 106 pages. Old stain spots to front board. Tie straps to boards, but worn. Title page loose. A9 loose. Foxing throughout. Ink stains to top margin of ~50 pages. Minor damp stain to inside corner. Final volume of Huber’s first edition, Opera of Paracelsus, printed from 1589 - 1591. Paracelsus was an important Renaissance physician, alchemist, astrologer, and occultist. He is credited with being the founder of the disciple of toxicology. Paracelsus is best known for his independence of thought and his embrace of observation rather than slavish acceptance of old masters (Galen, Avicenna, Aristotle) of medicine. While deeply entrenched in the occult, Paracelsus’s great contribution was the liberation of medicine from the limitations of theology. This helped establish a strongly secular and ultimately modern scientific worldview. The Astronomia Magna is Paracelsus's bold attempt to bring together his philosophical, magical and theological ideas into one great synthesis and can be called Paracelsus's attempt at an early philosophy of science, which could have been groundbreaking for the 16th century, if it would have been received earlier. The Archidoxis Magica is in three parts: (trans) The Secrets of Alchemy, Of Occult Philosophy, Of the Mysteries of the Signes of the Zodiack, and details the medicial uses of the zodiac and relations of the planets as well as the abuse of such knowledge by witchcraft and necromancy. An important early medical work of the use of magic for curing disease. C. Webster, Paracelsus confronts the saints: miracles, healing and the secularization of magic. Soc Hist Med. 1995 Dec;8 (3):403-21. Contents: Astronomia magna --Archidoxis magica (Appendix: p. 67-138) --Ausslegung der Figuren ...

        Segunda parte dos dialogos da imagem da vida Christam. O primeiro he da tranquillidade da vida. O segundo da discreta ignorancia. O terceiro da verdadeira amizade. O quarto das causas. O quinto dos verdadeiros & falsos bés .?

      Lisbon, A custa de João Despanha, & de Miguel Darenas, Mercadores de livros, [colophon] Per Balthesar Ribeyro, 1591. - Small typographical vignette on title page. Woodcut initials. (8), 372 ll. 8°, contemporary limp vellum (two small holes of about 1.5 x 1 cm. along upper joint, near head of spine and a bit below center; other minor binding wear; lacks rear free endleaf), vertical calligraphic manuscript author's name on spine, fore-edge cover extensions, leather thongs present, text-block edges sprinkled red. Light toning. Small wormhole in front free endleaf, blank portion of title page and blank margin of following leaf, never affecting text. Worm trace in lower outer margins of leaves 245-68, occasionally just touching a letter of text, but never affecting legibility. Overall in good to very good condition. Engraved pictorial bookplate of Victor d'Avila Perez. Old ink signature of Dom Francisco Lobo on front free endleaf recto, and signed in ink in the same hand on title page D. Francisco Lobo da Silveira. ---- Apparently the third edition of this second part of a classic work, one of the best-selling Portuguese books of the sixteenth century and one of the most important books ever written in Portuguese. Bell describes the @Imagem at length: "It is impossible to read a page of these dialogues and not be struck by the extraordinary fascination of their style. It is concise and direct without ever losing its harmony. Perhaps its best testimonial is that its magic survives the innumerable quotations ? The work contains much ingenious thought, charming descriptions, and elaborate similes ?" (p. 237). Completed in the same year that saw the publication of the @Lusiadas, the @Imagem is the culmination of the humanistic movement in Portugal, and brilliantly combines classical learning and Renaissance erudition with the medieval Christian tradition.The first part was published originally in 1563. There were editions of 1565, 1567, 1572, and a number of others. The second part was first published in 1572; a revised edition appeared in 1575. The first part saw a number of subsequent editions in the sixteenth century, and the second part appeared at least once more, in 1593. The two parts were published for the first time in a single volume in 1681, and there was an 1843 edition of the two parts in three volumes. The work was translated into Spanish, French, Italian, and Latin at relatively early dates, and went through various editions in each of these languages. It is still reprinted from time to time in Portugal. All the sixteenth-century editions are rare. Fr. Heitor Pinto (1528?-1584?) was one of the three greatest Portuguese mystic writers of the sixteenth century - perhaps @the greatest, ranking with D. Fr. Amadaor Arraiz and Fr. Thomé de Jesus. Born in all probability at Covilhã, he professed at the Convento dos Jerónimos at Belém in 1543 and received his doctorate in theology from Siguença. Because of his proficiency in oriental languages and his knowledge of the Bible (he wrote learned commentaries on several books of the Bible), a Chair of Holy Scripture was created for him at Coimbra in 1576. A strong supporter of the Prior of Crato, Pinto was requested by King Philip to attend the Court in Madrid, was prevented from teaching, and was sent to the monastery of Silla near Toledo. Philip excluded him from the amnesty granted in 1581 and Pinto died in exile, some say poisoned on orders from the Spanish king.@Provenance: José António Francisco Lobo da Silveira Queresma, (1698-1773) was 1.º marquês de Alvito, 10.º barão de Alvito and 3.º conde de Oriola. If the ownership signatures are not his, they may be by one of his relatives. Victor Marat d'Avila Perez was a great bibliophile whose library was one of the dozen or so most important ever sold at auction in Portugal. The catalogue contains 8,962 lots, sold in six parts by Arnaldo Henriques de Oliveira, probably with a total of 30 sessions, the first part beginning 30 October 1939, with the final part beginning 29 April 1940.---- Innocêncio III, 175-6 (without collation).

These included moxibustion - the production of counter-irritation by placing burning or heated material on the skin - which Alpini introduced into European medicine [...] Alpini also mentioned coffee for the first time in this work" (Norman). - Some dampstaining throughout, with leaves F1-2 and F 7-8 more noticeably browned.

        [The Great American Voyages]. Vols. 1-9 plus variant duplicate volumes of IV and VIII, in all 11 volumes, bound in 9. Mixed editions/issues, mixed German and Latin text.

      Frankfurt/Oppenheim, 1591-1625.. Folio. Bound in 9 uniform magnificent late 19th century full green morocco bindings with gilt centrepieces, gilt lines to edges of boards and gilt line-frames to inside of boards. All edges gilt and all volumes signed W. Pratt.. A lovely set, exquisitely and uniformly bound, magnificently restored in the most gentle and respectful of manners, of the entire original run of De Bry's "Great American Voyages" (supplied by extra variant copies of volumes IV and VIII), the magnificent work that is responsible for shaping the European image of the New World, inventing it in the minds of the masses. Presenting a broad view of European conquests in America and the first contact with the American Indians, De Bry's Great American Voyages represents the first attempt to introduce in Europe - and on a large scale - a pictorial image of the New World as a whole. With it, the first iconography of the American Indian had been created, and most Europeans glimpsed for the first time the wonders of the New World in the illustrations present here. For more than a century, the European view of the New World was dominated by the present work. Theodor de Bry himself published the first six parts (in German and Latin simultaneously), and after his death, his widow and his two sons issued the three following parts. "It appears that they intended to stop there" (Sabin III, 20). However, 17 years later, Johann Theodor decided to publish another three volumes (1619-24). These are not present here. The present set is a mix of the German and Latin volumes (which appeared simultaneously), and as always in a mix of editions and issues. Due to the great scarcity as well as the complex bibliographical nature of "The Great American Voyages", no sets of this great work are said to be alike. They are always made up of different languages, editions, and issues, and there is said to be no such thing as a "complete set". Copies of sets are almost always in very poor condition. - With the book plate of John Jay Paul (dated 1913 and 1914) to each volume, and each volume with a tipped-in manuscript note describing issue points and/or the main restoration work (one dated 1919). - Gentle washing, pressing, and a few restorations; some maps neatly mounted, 2 maps supplied in facsimile (being the map in both copies of vol. VIII, which is not always present and thus technically not lacking), and a few leaves supposedly supplied from other copies. Occasional slight cropping. All in all a very handsome and well preserved.

        Ein Christliches Bedencken/ was von dem Exorcismo bey der Tauf/ und abschaffung desselben zu halten sey. Auff begeren etlicher guthertzigen und furnemen vom Adel/ gestellet/ Durch Polycarpum Leisern/ der H. Schrifft Doctorem/ und Superintendenten zu Braunschweig.

      Ohne Druckort (Wittemberg) ; 1591 - 32 unnummerierte Seiten mit Titelholzschnitt; neuerer Pergament-Einband aus altem handgeschriebenem Manuskript des 15. Jahrhunderts (Vors&#132;tze mit altem Papier erneuert, Papier vereinzelt gering braunfleckig, im Text vereinzelt handschriftliche Anstreichungen aus alter Zeit) Angebunden: Zwo Christliche Predigten/ Eine Ober das Evangelium am 25. Sontag nach Trinitaris. Die Ander/ &#154;ber das ander Capitel des Propheten Joels/ Daraus genommen ist ein Christliche vermanung zu wahrer Buss und eiferigem Gebet wider den T&#129;rcken/ Zu diesen gefehrlichen Leufften gantz n"tig und n&#129;tzlich zu lesen. Zu Wittenberg gehalten. 36 Bl&#132;tter; Wittenberg, M. Simon Gr"nenberg 1593; Zwei seltene und kulturgeschichtlich wichtige Drucke des 16. Jahrhundert. Das "Christliche Bedencken" Leysers, ein Lutheraner, beinhaltet ein Festhalten an der Traditon des Exorzismus bei der Taufe, gleichwohl eine gemilderte Form angestrebt wird, und dem "Bepstischen Zeuber Exorcismum" abgeschworen wird. Eine v"llige Abschaffung wird in diesem Fr&#129;hstadium der evangelischen Kirche aber noch nicht toleriert. Bei den "Zwo Christlichen Predigten" ist vorallem die zweite interessant, die aktuell auf die 1593 wieder aufbrechenden T&#129;rkenkriege Bezug nimmt und das Inferno einer T&#129;rkenherrschaft in Europa anprangert. Nicht zuletzt durch solche Predigten gelang es den Mitteleurop&#132;ischen Staaten, sich gegen die T&#129;rken zu solidarisieren und ihnen den Einbruch nach Europa zu verwehren. 0,000 gr.

        DELL'ARTE HISTORICA DI AGOSTINO MASCARDI. Trattati cinque. Coi Sommarii di tutta l'Opera estratti dal Sig. Girolamo Marcucci, e coi Privilegi di S.Santità, e d'altri Principi.

      Prima edizione, dedicata a Francesco Brignole. Cm.23,7x16,2. Pg.(12), 676, (32). Sobria legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Tassello con titoli in oro al dorso a cinque nervature. Tagli bruniti su tonalità bluastra. Doppio frontespizio, il primo, assai decorativo, calcografico: su un cippo lapideo, ove sono indicati i titoli ed i dati editoriali, San Giorgio uccide il drago, in una plastica immagine liberamente tratta da un dipinto di Hans Von Aachen. Sullo sfondo una veduta prospettica del porto di Genova, tra il faro di San Benigno e la punta di Sampierdarena. Al secondo frontespizio e al colophon all'ultima carta marca tipografica con la Speranza assisa che tiene in mano un'ancora. In nastro il motto "In te domine speravi non confundar in aeternum". Capilettera ornati ed alcuni cartigli incisi. Leggere fisiologiche bruniture, ma eccellente esemplare, con margini inusuali per una edizione seicentesca. Ex libris nobiliare all'antiporta. L'opera principale, in edizione originale, dello storico ligure Agostino Mascardi (Sarzana, 1591 - 1640), rispettivamente figlio e nipote dei giureconsulti Alderano e Giuseppe. Mascardi fu Cameriere d'onore di Papa Urbano VIII, e tenne la cattedra di retorica nel Collegio Romano, e passò alle cronache del tempo per una non celata dedizione ai piaceri mondani. Il presente costituisce un importante trattato, in cui l'Autore fornisce i prodromi per una corretta ricerca storiografica, basandosi dichiaratamente sulla "Poetica" di Aristotele, rinvenuta nel secolo precedente. Belloni definì il Mascardi "il primo teorico della storiografia moderna".

        La Historia della Citta di Parma et de la Descrittione del fiume Parma

      1591. ANGELI, Bonaventura. La Historia della Citta di Parma, et la Descrittione del fiume Parma...divisa in otto libri. [16], 783 (i.e., 795), [1]; [160] pp. Illustrated with large woodcut historiated initials at the beginning of each chapter, ornamental head- and tailpieces, plus the printer's woodcut device on title-page and colophon (f. Ddd4v). 4to., 203 x 147 mm, bound by Le Gascon in contemporary French blonde calf, double-ruled in gilt, framing a central armorial device with the monogram of Antoine de Sève at corners of inner panel on each board and in spine compartments (interlacing A.D.S.E.V.; Olivier 683, fer 2 and 3); spine with raised bands and title gilt in second compartment of six, the remaining five with same monogram; endpapers and fly-leaves ruled in red, contemporary document in secretary hand used as binder's waste visible (illegible) beneath endpapers; edges speckled red. In Parma: Appresso Erasmo Viotto, 1591. |~||~||~||~| A history of the city and river of Parma, including regions in the surrounding Emilia Romagna. Angeli's history contains a plethora of detailed information on the buildings, sites, the Bapistry, the Ducal palace of Ottavio Farnese by Vignola, and accounts of the ruling noble families San Vitali, Pallavicino, Rossa, Torella, and Terza. Angeli dedicated his book to the Prince of Parma, Don Ranuccio Farnese. Bonaventura Angeli (ca. 1525-1592) Italian writer from Ferrara, along with his friend Gianbattista Pigna, formed an academy for the cultivation of literature called the Parthian Academy. For some time he was in the employ of the Dukes of Ferrara. His Historia della Citta di Parma is the most important of many works written by Angeli. At the time little was recorded of the city of Parma, of the history of the Parma river, or of the surrounding Emilia-Romagna region. Angeli consulted whatever archives he could locate in Parma and composed the book in eight chapters with several digressions on a general history of Italy. He supplied an exhaustive index of 160 pages at the end, printed in double columns. This volume was in the library of Philippe Desportes (1546-1606), the French courtier poet who was famous for composing villanelles, elegies and sonnets, many copied by English Elizabethan poets. Desportes was one of the major poets competing with Pierre de Ronsard for the favor of the Duke of Anjou. He worked under the patronage of King Henry III, for whom Desportes wrote poems upon royal request. He was granted the abbey of Tiron as a royal benefice for literary services rendered. The other early owner of this volume was Antoine de Sève (d. 1662), a counselor and chaplain to Louis XIV, prior at Champdieu, and Abbey of l'Isle-en-Barrois. His books, forming an important library of more than six thousand volumes on the sciences, were mainly bound by Antoine Ruette and Le Gascon. One of the tools found in this binding was used by de Sève only during his time at Champdieu. Binding extremities repaired. Trimmed close at upper margin near but not touching headline, two pages with small repair obscuring a few words of text, minor browning or foxing in a few quires, a beautiful book overall in an absolutely sumptuous binding. PROVENANCE: Philippe Desportes, with his ink inscription on title-page; Antoine de Sève, with his coat-of-arms and monogram on binding, from his famous library, see above. Adams 1095 (different collation). Brunet I, 287. Affo, Memorie degli Scrittori e Letterati Parmigiani IV, 209-240. Barotti, Memorie Istoriche di Letterati Ferraresi II, 187-194.

      [Cologne, Gottfried van Kempen, 1591?].. Engraved broadside with letterpress title and text. Ca. 430 x 550 mm.. Rare, unrecorded broadside showing the family tree of the reigning sultan of Turkey Amurath III (1548-95) and his eleven ancestors, thus covering 12 generations beginning with sultan Osman I (1259-1326).

He is considered a pioneer of newspaper journalism, as well as of genealogy. - Restored copy; formerly mounted with vague gluestains on verso, skilfully remargined and 2 large repaired horizontal tears (slight loss of image and text).
