ARNAULD D'ANDILLY, Angélique de Saint Jean.
1591. 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.Bugnion-Secrétan, La Mère Angélique Arnauld; Gognet, La Mère Angélique et Saint-François Sales; Asahina, 'Les deux Angelique de Port Royal', pp. 157-170; DBF II, p. 1061-1071.

Ariosto, Ludovico
London: Richard Field, 1591. First English language edition. An exceptionally rare hand-colored copy, heightened in gold, of the first English translation, with fewer than 10 such examples known. Bound in modern full paneled calf to style. Stamped in gilt and blind, raised bands on the spine, all edges sprinkled red. Folio (pages 276 x 205 mm), printed on thick paper, collated complete (but for one leaf, recto: "An Advertisement to the Reader..." and verso, the illustration to the first canto): [8 leaves, including the title page], 423, [xi, comprised of a Table of Names, Contents & errata, and colophon leaf with verso blank]. Ruled throughout in red ink with vivid contemporary hand coloring throughout, including: the title page, illustrations (45 of 46), head and tail ornaments and the decorative borders and first letters. This copy with "Esquire" tipped in below John Harrington's name (as found in some copies). A magnificent copy, despite lacking one leaf. One of the towering pinnacles of world-literature, in the rare first English translation. Ariosto first published the work (40 cantos) in 1516 in Italy, with the full 46 cantos only appearing in the third edition of 1532. Aristioso's work was and continues to be hugely influential. Indeed, one apocryphal story claims that Queen Elizabeth I banished the translator, John Harrington from Court, pending his completion of this translation. Such luminaries as Shakespeare, Milton, Cervantes, Spenser, Lord Byron, Lope de Vega, Jean de la Fontaine, Sir Walter Scott, Virginia Woolf, Italo Calvino, Jorge Luis Borges, and Salman … [Click Below for Full Description]

Neyen, Biographie Luxemb. I S. 72f. Blum I-70 n°1b. Peter Binsfeld (1545/46-1598), war Weihbischof von Trier und maßgeblich für die Hexenverfolgungen in der Großregion Trier-Luxemburg verantwortlich. Geboren in Binsfeld/Eifel kam er als Hütejunge in das nahegelegene Kloster Himmerod, dessen Abt ihm das Studium ermöglichte, welches er im Collegium Germanicum in Rom fortsetzte. Nach Trier zurückgekehrt erhielt er 1577 den Auftrag, Abtei und Stadt Prüm zu reformieren. Er wurde Pfarrer von Wasserbillig (Luxemburg), dann 1580 Trierer Weihbischof und als solcher für die Visitation der Luxemburgischen Pfarreien des Erzbistums zuständig. 1582/83 und 1587/88 war er Rektor der Trierer Universität. Zu Zeiten und wohl auch auf Betreiben Binsfelds fand zwischen 1585 und 1593 die größte Prozeßwelle in der Geschichte der kurtrierischen Hexenverfolgung statt. In deren Verlauf wurden mehr als 300 Personen hingerichtet und das hier vorliegende Buch war maßgeblich daran beteiligt: "Die Bedeutung von Binsfelds Hexentraktat für die Verschärfung der Hexenverfolgung kann kaum über … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. N.T. Gospels. Arabic. 1591

Defective -- lacks any preliminaries and the title-leaf (pages 1-2) as well as one text leaf (pp. 287-288 containing. At least five other leaves (pages 3-12) are chipped and have serious insect-damage and loss of text. The rest of this work is in relatively decent shape, but with a fair amount of staining, worming and other wear. Bookplate (Library of the Syrian Mission A. P. B. F. M.). Note on worn later flyleaf signed by Eli Smith (as "E. S."): "Translation from the Greek& the earliest printing of the Gospels in Arabic. See De [???] N. T. p. 25, 26. The editions of 1619 and 1774 are the same with only a new title -- see id. p. 26 & [?] Introd. p. 257. Essentially the same as the Leiden and [?] editions. E. S." Eli Smith was the organizing genius behind the first great Protestant translation ("Al-kitab al -muqaddas ay kutub al-`ahd al-qadim wa al-`ahd al-jadid ...") which was completed after Smith's death in 1857 under the direction his collaborator Cornelius Van Dyck and published in Beirut in 1865, turning out to superior to all of the earlier Catholic efforts. We don't know what use Smith and his colleagues made of this Catholic forerunner in preparing their translation but we were excited to realize that this early Catholic translation of the Gospels was in the library they amassed.

1591. Tommaso Tamburini o Tamburino (Caltanissetta, 6 marzo 1591 - Palermo, 10 ottobre 1675) è stato un gesuita e filosofo italiano.Tommaso Tamburino era figlio del giudice Fabrizio e di Agata Adelicia Tramontana. Entrò nella compagnia di Gesù a quindici anni, restò a Caltanissetta dopo aver ricevuto gli ordini, successivamente fu incaricato dell'insegnamento di retorica, di filosofia e di teologia sistematica nel locale collegio gesuitico. A trent'anni fu trasferito nel collegio di Messina per insegnare teologia morale e a quarantacinque passò in quello di Palermo. Resse i collegi gesuitici di Caltanissetta, Monreale e Palermo. Fu esaminatore delle curie arcivescovili di Palermo e Monreale, consigliere e qualificatore nel Sant'Uffizio della Inquisizione spagnola, dove assurse alla carica di qualificatore ossia di esaminatore dei reati prima della loro attribuzione alla competenza dell'Inquisizione.Il gesuita siciliano nella conoscenza del peccato attribuisce importanza primaria alla cognitio singulorum cioè alla capacità di valutazione dei singoli. Diverso è infatti il peso delle colpe a seconda se a commettere l'infrazione è l'individuo colto oppure l'ignorante. Nel primo prevale la vis ratiocinandi (forza della ragione) e nel secondo la vis sentiendi (forza del sentimento). Ancora differenza c'è tra l'actio humana e l'actio hominis essendo la prima compiuta in perfetta consapevolezza, mentre nella seconda la coscienza è spesso condizionata dal patire passionale, che può essere violentum, coactum, necessarium (violento, costretto, necessario), venendo così a mitigare la c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Expertly bound to style in limp vellum, titled in manuscript on spine, red cloth chemise and morocco backed slipcaseA fine 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 Huguenot settlement in Florida.

de Bry, Theodor; Le Moyne de Morgues, Jacques
1591. Good Condition. Hand colored engraving, light foxing and soiling, paper thinned in upper margin from prior mounting. It reads (translation from Discovering the New World, Based on the Works of Theodore de Bry, Harper & Row, 1976): As can be seen from the preceding illustrations, this area abounds with very agreeable little islands. The rivers are not deep; the pure, clear water scarcely reaches the chest. When the Indians want to make an enjoyable excursion with their wives and children, they go to these islands. They either swim across the river (for they are excellent swimmers) or they wade across carrying the little children. In fact the mothers can manage three children at once, the smallest on a shoulder clutching its hand, and the other two under her arms. With the free hand, the women carry a basket full of fruit or other food for the occasion. For fear of meeting enemies the men carry bows and arrows. In order not to wet them, they attach the quiver to their hair and hold the bows stretched and ready with and arrow, prepared instantly to defend themselves, as can be seen in our engraving.

de Bry, Theodor; Le Moyne de Morgues, Jacques
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. Mild foxing and age toning, tear wear removed. "Some considerable distance from the place where we have constructed our fort, rise some high mountains called Apalatcy in the Indian tongue. As can be seen from our map, these mountains give birth to three rivers in whose sand there is much gold, silver and copper. The natives dig trenches near the banks of the rivers so as to catch the sand brought down by the current. The water rapidly fills these up and goes on further. A short time later the Indians remove the sand which has gathered there with hollow reeds and convey it by canoe down the great river which runs into the sea and which we named the river of May. The Spaniards have taken great advantages of the riches coming from these places."

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). Two shields display the Sultan's coat of arms and attributes (turban, sword, bow and arrows, rife and tools). Each sultan has his own engraved portrait; letterpress title above and two columns of letterpress text at the sides: information about the sultans to the left, and information about their brothers (29 in all) at the right. The Austrian scholar Michael Eyzinger (Baron Aitzing, ca. 1530-98) wrote several pamphlets on contemporary historical events, parts of which were published by Gottfried van Kempen (cf. Göllner 1594). 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).

[Biblia arabico-latina - Evangelium].
1591. Folio (260 x 366 mm). (4), 9-462, (2) pp. Title page printed in red and black, with the Medici arms. With 149 text woodcuts by L. N. Parassole after Antonio Tempesta. Contemporary Italian flexible boards with ms. title to spine. The rare first re-issue, with new preliminary matter only, of the first Gospel printing in the interlinear Arabic and Latin version, prepared at the same time and printed by the same press as the first Arabic-only Gospel. These were the first works ever produced by Ferdinando de' Medici's "Medicea" press, founded by Pope Gregory XIII to spread the word of Christ in the Orient. Supervised by the able scholar Giovambattista Raimondi (1536-1614), its strength lay in oriental, especially Arabic, printing. After Raimondi's death, the press relocated to Florence. - The Arabic text is printed in Robert Granjon's famous large fount, generally considered the first satisfactory Arabic printing type; as all early printed editions of the Arabic Gospels, it is based on the Alexandrian Vulgate (cf. Darlow/M. 1636). The Latin version is by Leonardo Sionita. As issued in 1591, the work began with page 9, without a title page or any preliminary matter at all: "the intended prefatory matter was apparently never published" (Darlow/M.). The 1619 re-issue contains 4 pages of preliminary matter (title page and a note "typographus lectori"); there exist copies with two additional leaves of dedications not present here. Another re-issue, much more common, was released in 1774. - Occasional browning; a good, untrimmed and hence wide-margined copy in its original tempo … [Click Below for Full Description]

De Bry, Theodor.
1591. 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 alw … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBBIA ARABIC
Medicae Tipogr, 1591. in - folio, pp. 9 - 462, (1 contenente avviso e colophon); leg. leggermente posteriore p. perg. molle, tit. ms. al dorso (rifatto ). Splendida edizione figurata del primo evangelario in lingua araba con traduzione interlineare latina, composta da Antonius Sionita, (l'anno precedente era stata impressa un'edizione con il solo testo arabo). La Bibbia si presenta adorna di 149 finissime silografie a 1/3 di pagina (molte di queste monogrammate ''LP'' per Luca Pennis o Leonardo Parasole), tratte dai significativi disegni di Antonio Tempesta. Dopo l'ediz. del 1591 fu impressa quella del 1619, la quale differisce dalla prima per l'aggiunta di 8 pp., contenenti il titolo e la prefazione. Artefice principale della Typographia Medicea fu l'orientalista G.B. Raimondi, che ne divenne più tardi proprietario; dopo la morte nel 1614, la tipografia interruppe l'attività e fu trasportata a Firenze. Con molta probabilità, i fondi vennero poi acquistati da Cesare Malanimeus, il quale rimise in commercio le copie invendute dell'opera aggiungendovi una prefazione ''lectori philarabico'' con data 1774. Buon esemplare a pieni margini, ben conservato anche se con qualche foglio uniformemente brunito.

BRUNO NOLANI, JORDANUS. - [INTRODUCING THE ATOMIC THEORY OF SPACE TO THE MODERN WORLD]
Francfurt, Iohannes Wechel & Petrus Fischer, 1591. 12mo. Lovely full calf binding from ab. 1800, with five raised bands and gilt ornamentations to spine. Blindstamped line-borders with gilt corner-pieces to boards. Inner gilt borders and all edges of boards gilt. Marbled end-papers. Old book-plate to inside of front board and a small stamp to title-page (from the Beltrame-library). A bit of wear to extremities and leather at hinges worn, otherwise very nice. Apart from a slightly dusty title-page, only minimal browning or spotting internally. A very nice copy indeed. Some leaves slightly shaved at top, just touching a few headers. With numerous woodcut illustrations throughout. (8), 217, (3) pp. ¶ The extremely scarce first edition of one of Bruno's main works, one of his key cosmological texts, being the earliest and most important of his three long Latin poems with prose accompaniment and thus one of the most influential works of the Renaissance. It is in this foundational work that "the greatest thinker in Italy during the sixteenth century" (Paterson) defines the triple minimum, which consists in the monad (being the basis of metaphysics), the mathematical point (being the basis of geometry), and the atom (being the basis of physics) and thus presents the basis for his theory of nature and the universe. It contains much of the author's ripest thought and his first description of his seminal doctrine of the minimum, by which he was the first Western thinker (since Plato) to introduce the atomistic theory of space. The work was extremely influential and directly influenc … [Click Below for Full Description]
