        METHODO DE ENSINAR CAVALLOS ? SÉC. XVIII. ANÓNIMO. [ MANUSCRITO ]

      - Interpretaçaõ do Segundo Livro de Novo Methodo de ensinar Cavallos composto pelo Príncipe Guilherme Marques e Conde Neucáste [William of Newcastle, 1592-1676] com hum appendice de Addicoes e Reflexões, que o mesmo Autor addicionou à sua obra [1667], em que se ensina a trabalhar os Cavallos seg[undo] a ordem da Natureza. E aperfeiçoar a natureza com a subtileza da Arte. S/L [Vila Real ou Bragança?]. S/d. [circa 1740-1760]. De 21x15 cm. Com 80, [iii] fólios. Encadernação da época inteira de pele [restaurada com folhas de guarda novas e rótulo novo] com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada. Profusamente ilustrado com 24 figuras desenhadas no texto [esquemas da colocação das mãos e pés do cavalo nas pistas em movimentos de espádua adentro]. Manuscrito de Manejo, ou Alta Escola Equestre, com exercicios ilustrados para 2 e para 4 pistas. Obra escrita a uma só mão firme e regular, utilizando sempre a mesma nuance de tinta; fólios numerados e colofón (Finis Laus Deo). Título de posse após o colofón (Este libro he de Manoel António de Figueiredo Sarmento). Últimos 3 fólios constituem aproveitamento das folhas de guarda para apontamentos apócrifos (com receitas de bolos, xaropes e bebidas), i. e. não relacionados com a obra. O primeiro parágrafo informa-nos genericamente do conteúdo do manuscrito, e o segundo parágrafo das razões da sua produção: ?O ter sido tão geralmente aceite este Novo Método e Arte de Cavalaria, faz com que não pareça ociosa esta interpretação e mesmo atentamente a ler se descobrirá o grande merecimento do seu Autor [William of Newcastle] que sendo já tão ponderado em tanto Mundo, não será em Portugal que principia a continuar o mesmo aplauso à Lição que se fez do Segundo Livro, e Apendice, pois foi por ele se inclinar nestas duas partes, o mais preciso, fundamental, e proveitoso desta Grande Arte: Exposto que todo o Corpo da obra como produção do mesmo elevado Espírito enorme e excelentes Doutrinas; naquelas Duas partes se contem as de que mais principalmente se deve instruir um novo, e valoroso Cavaleiro: nem o interprete se atreveria a passar destes Limites, por não exceder os termos da própria experiência [etc]". O manuscrito não contém indicação do autor ou escriba do mesmo, no entanto supomos - através do título de posse, e da utilização da letra b por v - ter sido elaborado no norte de Portugal, possívelmente em Vila Real ou Bragança que são localidades do seu possuidor, e onde na mesma época (1762) Paiva e Pona, Monteiro-mór de Vila Real, foi autor da obra «Manejo Real, Escola Moderna da Cavallaria de Brida. Para os Cavalleiros conseguirem esta scientifica faculdade : Novo Methodo para Desembaraçar os Potros, unir os Cavallos, vencer os resabiados, e reduzillos a huma total obediência». Sendo este tema da obediência do cavalo a continuação do colofón do manuscrito: ?Como um Cavaleiro logo concluo ser preciso que o cavalo saiba que o cavaleiro é o seu Senhor, isto é que tema, e logo o cavalo lhe obedecerá e nestes termos já se pode chamar ensiná-lo. Finis Laus Deo? O manuscrito não apresenta um índice das matérias, que no entanto aqui reunimos: Introdução. Cap. 1º Do perfeito assento e das acções do Cavalo, Assento da sela, Postura e firmeza do corpo, Pés nos Estribos, Lugar da mão, Proporção da Vara, Postura da Vara, Repreende-se a afectação, Aprova-se o assento. Cap. 2º Das Acções ou movimentos do Cavalo em todos os seus passos naturais; Definição do passo, Definição do trote, Definição da andadura, Definição do galope, Definição da carreira, Reprova-se a andadura, Condena-se ir o cavaleiro falso no galope; Primeiro modo de ir falso. Cap. 3º Dos Movimentos artificiais das pernas e mãos de um cavalo. Cap. 4º Do modo com que costumo prender as rédeas no cabeção de que costumo servir-me; Utilidades deste modo de cabeção. Cap. 5º Como se deve manejar a primeira vez um cavalo bruto para o montar para a mão direita por um círculo largo com o cabeção referido; Ajuda do ombro?sendo as duas espáduas do cavalo trabalha

        Commentaria posthuma.

      Polish nobleman Jonas Schlichtingius (Jonasz Szlichtyng, 1592-1661) commenced writing these New Testament commentaries in 1655, having fled to Cracow at the outbreak of war with Sweden. Although he was taken prisoner at Stargard in 1660 and his work confiscated, the Socinian theologian continued writing "through five bad sieges, in the middle of the fury of wars, and in captivity" (cataloguer's translation, f. **2v), and revising the commentaries until his death the following year. In a brief ad lectorem, the persecuted author declares, "I would not wish the Church held responsible [for these commentaries]. Whatever is said and written is [mine]. . . ." (f. [pi]4r). Schlichtingius left his opus in the care of his sons and two friends, John Preussis and Stanislaüs Lubieniecius: In the preface to this volume, the latter discusses his life and work including his exile from Warsaw in 1647 and imprisonment in 1660. Three copious indices to scriptural sources and references within the text close the collection. Woodcut devices grace the sectional titles; refined tailpieces and large initials against a floriated background decorate the volume throughout. There is scattered Greek type. Provenance: Early inscription "Middeldorpf" on front flyleaf; bookplate and stamp of Rochester Theological Seminary (later the Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School). Deaccessioned 2005. Evidence of readership: Sparse contemporary ink annotations; underlining throughout, heavy in quires A-C, K, M, Eee, et alibi. First edition: Published as the seventh and eighth volumes in a series of nine, comprising the Bibliotheca fratrum polonorum (1665-68, and a supplement in 1692).

        BRAZIL: BRASILIA.

      - West-up oriented map of Brazil with names of the coast towns. The map is dedicated to Krzysztof Arciszewski (1592 – 1656), a Polish-Lithuanian nobleman, military officer, engineer ,ethnographer, a general of artillery for the Netherlands and Poland and from 1637 to 1646 a vice-governor of Dutch Brazil. The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon Willem’s return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of Blaeu’s anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the Company’s official hydrographer. Blaeu’s sea atlas of European waters, Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608) was revolutionary, being the first broadly accurate maritime atlas. He went on to create magnificent wall maps, large-format charts and eventually terrestrial atlases, all decorated with the finest Dutch Baroque artistry. In particular, thePascaarte van alle de Zecusten van Europa (1621) helped to establish Blaeu’s supremacy in the highly competitive Dutch cartography market. Towards the end of his life, Willem Blaeu published the Atlas Novus (1635), a grand production that would be progressively expanded to include new volumes featuring all of the known world in unprecedented detail. The work featured numerous maps, exemplified by the present map, based on carefully selected sources and designed in the finest manner of the contemporary Dutch Baroque style. They became iconic works of cartography readily recognizable to generations of observers. The Atlas Novus and its successor publications were issued in 5 languages and became the most commercially successful works of their kind, setting a new standard for map publishing, emulated by cartographers across Europe. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) was the most successful mapmaker in the world in the mid-17th Century, during the apogee of Dutch cartography and the fortunes of the Dutch Republic. While he inherited a splendid enterprise from his father Willem, he managed to dramatically grow and expand the business to new heights. His greatest achievement was the world’s largest and most sumptuous atlas, the Atlas Maior, an 11-12 volume Baroque masterpiece (and successor to the Atlas Novus), in which editions of the present map appeared. The Blaeu firm flourished until its workshop was destroyed in a fire in 1672, ending almost three generations of hegemony over the map market. While many would try to emulate the Blaeu’s success, this was never accomplished, and the Blaeu name stands alone at the fore of the Golden Age of Dutch cartography.

Estupendo estado de un ejemplar hermosamente encuadernado al que solo cabría con esfuerzo reprochar estar ligeramente corto de márgenes, una mancha en la página 19 y una diminuta y delgadísima galería en el borde del margen inferior de las páginas 51 y 53.- // Proc.: De la biblioteca del Château de La Chaux.- // Refs.: Brunet, IV, 639-640); Lelong, 3166.- // Puede sorprender actualmente, pero hasta 1674 no se comprendió que toda el agua de los ríos procedía del cielo, tanto la que bajaba de las nieves acumuladas y la que escurre por la superficie al llover o nevar, como la que, tras filtrarse en la tierra, acaba brotando en los manantiales. Mientras tanto, puesto que la tierra era el centro del mundo, en la tierra (y quien dice la tierra dice también el mar), y no en el cielo, estaba el origen de todo. De ese modo, cualquier explicación sobre el origen del agua en los manantiales tenía que ser una que lo explicase desde el protagonismo de la tierra y del mar. La excepción fue Bernard Palissy, pero en su momento nadie le hizo caso. Así, no es de extrañar que la concepción científica de Antoine du Fouilloux, médico en Pougues a finales del siglo XVI, fuera absolutamente aristotélica, para la física del agua y los manantiales, e hipocrática, para sus virtudes médicas y el modo de comprobarlas. Así, tras dedicar las primeras páginas a examinar las diferentes teorías sobre la formación de los manantiales, acaba diciendo: "De donde seguramente podemos concluir que, entre todas las opiniones, la que ofrece Aristóteles sobre el origen & procedencia de las fuentes es la más probable y de más aceptación, igual que puede decirse que el no atribuyó el origen de las fuentes a una sola causa, a saber a la mutación y cambio del vapor en agua provocados por la fuerza del frío en las cavidades de la tierra de las montañas, sino también a la agregación de las lluvias que se hace por los vericuetos de la tierra. La primera es la principal y la otra no es sino una ayuda y socorro para completar las dichas aguas. Que si en alguna ocasión nos parece que el agua remonta, considerando el lugar donde el manantial tiene su origen, cuando así suceda no se necesita atribuirlo a una condición de su naturaleza ni a un orden universal, sino a una fuerza y violencia de las aguas empujándose las unas a las otras, como vemos que lo hacen algunos ingenios e instrumentos, siendo necesario de todas formas remarcar que el agua no sube nunca más alto que el manantial del que brota, de tal manera que emprende su curso una vez alcanzada esta altura y cuando lo hace comienza a descender aunque parezca que sube. En lo que hace a las palabras del Sabio cuando dijo que los ríos surgen del mar, no deben entenderse universalmente sino indeterminadamente, para algunos ríos nada más, no para todos." Así se imaginó durante dieciocho siglos: que el mar estaba conectado por debajo de la tierra con unas cavernas en las que (./.)

        De birreto rubeo dando Cardinalibus regularibus responsa

      apud Georgium Ferrarium, Rome 1592 - FIRST EDITION 4to pp (viii) 90 (xxii). Roman letter, title in red and black with woodcut vignette of Saints Peter and Paul, woodcut initials and headpieces, four woodcut portraits of cardinals wearing the scarlet biretta with their arms, appropriately coloured in red, early underlining and marginal pen marks. T.p. foxed (a few small holds on blank), age browning to a few ll, light marginal foxing, small oil splash to blank fore edge of a final ll. Still an attractive copy in C17 vellum over boards, Autograph of J. T. Coleridge, Torrington Square, 1830' on fly. First and only early edition of this curious work of the Bolognese jurist Antonius Scappus, advocate of the Roman curia, dedicated to Pope Gregory XIV. It consists of nine questions and extensive answers, concerning the order and regulations relating to the wearing of the red biretta by cardinals of the Roman Church, giving copious references to Canon Law and historical sources. It appears to be a compilation of works on the somewhat esoteric subject as Responsi 1 - 2 and 4 -7 are described as of uncertain authorship, 3 is by Georgius Diedus, 8 by the fellow advocate Nicholas Angelius and 9 by Scappus himself. The work concludes with an extensive index. The biretta has been justly described as the second least practical form of male headgear, after the academic square or mortar board (which probably share a common ancestor) but it has been worn by clerics from cardinals downwards (generally black other than for cardinals - red, and bishops - violet) since late medieval times and its use is prescribed in detail in the liturgical rubrics both at mass and for other solemn ecclesiastical functions. Its form is subject to similar detailed regulations e.g. the absence of tassels. It is thought to be the originals of the black cap which, until relatively recently, English judges donned at the moment of pronouncing the death sentence. The red biretta however has always been the exclusive preserve of the College of Cardinals. Sir John Taylor Coleridge (1790-1876) was a grandson of Rev. John Coleridge, father of the great poet. He led a distinguished legal and judicial career with a considerable knowledge of ecclesiastical law. He was also a distinguished classicist and author (Life of Keble 1869, contributor to Stanley's life of Arnold) and friend of Wordsworth, Arnold, Pusey, and Newman. BM STC It. p. 617.

        Archetypa Studiaque Patris Georgio Hoefnagelii.

      - Frankfurt, 1592. (165 x 220mm). 45 of 52 engraved plates. Loose sheets preserved in a plastic portfolio. A large portion of the first state. A beautiful and influential pattern book, one of the principal sources of seventeenth century still life painting. This work was engraved by the teenaged Jacob Hoefnagel (1573-1635), court painter to Emperor Rudolf II of Prague from 1602, under the supervision of his father Joris (1542-1601), last of the great Flemish miniaturists and manuscript illuminators.The title reads: "Archetype and verses by Joris Hoefnagel, his father, are presented, engraved in copper under the guidance of his genius and communicated in friendship to all lovers of the Muses by his son Jacob". Originally it was issued both in portfolio and as a bound volume and published in the imperial city of Frankfurt-am-Main, where Joris moved with his son in 1591 to escape religious persecution as a Calvinist in his native Antwerp. It was aimed to advertise his son's talents although this was the last time Jacob features as an engraver; he was trained and practiced as a painter.The complete work is divided into four parts, each containing an engraved title and twelve engraved plates illustrating natural history specimens, many of these reproduced for the first time. Jacob Hoefnagel drew from his father's small-scale cabinet miniatures and principally from a painted model book (which has not survived) which Joris Hoefnagel used for the illumination of some highly important manuscripts, especially those for Emperor Rudolf II at Prague.Joris Hoefnagel did not observe all his specimens from life and prototypes have been found for many (like the stag beetle from Dürer) but the majority of his images of plants and insects were done 'ad vivum'. The plates are arranged as if the specimens were items from a cabinet of natural curiosities or a 'Kunstkammer' like that of Rudolf II at Prague with its special focus on the microcosm and the world of small creatures. Many specimens are drawn to scale and each is combined into a composition that fills the entire printed area to form a pattern. They are viewed as if seen on a flat surface from above, often casting a shadow, with flowers attached to the left and right of the frame itself and therefore upright.There is a strongly religious content to the ensemble: a butterfly soaring upward from a pupa here becomes a symbol of the resurrection while the stag-beetle is to be interpreted as an image of Christ, for (according to tradition) it did not reproduce sexually. The whole work therefore is dedicated to the glorification of God in his smallest creatures: He is the 'Archetypa' at the centre of the whole work. Thea Vignau-Wilberg, in her fundamental work on the 'Archetypa' lists only twelve known sets of the first edition. "The 'Achetypa' was the first printed work to contain realistic representations of insects. Hoefnagel's engravings are in sharp contrast to the relatively stylised illustrations of previous publications and show many more details than the woodcuts in Aldrovandi's 'De insectis' which appeared ten years later" (E. Jorink. Reading the book of Nature in the Dutch Golden Age, 1575-1715 p. 191).The set lacks: Pars I engraved title and plate 11, Pars II plate 9, Pars III plate 2 and Pars IV plates 10, 11 and 12. 21 plates are in fine condition, the others have minor paper repair or damage and 4 have more significant damage to the plates.J.

Une vignette de titre de l'imprimeur sur les deux pages de titre. Belle édition estimée. Edition illustrée de 51 bois gravés in et hors texte (machines militaires, manoeuvres militaires...) et d'une planche dépliante représentant l'organisation d'un camp romain. Les commentaires de Stewachius (1557-1588) ont une page de titre particulière : Godescalci Stewechii Commentarius ad Flavi Vegeti Renati, De re militari libros. Accesserunt eiusdem G. Stewechii & Francisci Modii... Le texte de Polybe (livre VI de son Histoire) a été traduit en latin par Janus Lascaris (1445-1535). le dictionnaire militaire, 'Modesti libellus De vocabulis rei militaris' a été élaboré par Pomponius Laetus (1425-1497, ou Leto) et ses élèves d'après l'ouvrage de Vegece. Reliure en plein vélin d'époque souple à rabats. Traces de lacets. Titre à la plume noire. Bel exemplaire. Erreur du relieur : 49-64 ont été placées après la page 32, c'est ainsi qu'après la page 48 se trouve donc la page 65. Vegece fut un écrivain militaire romain vivant sous la seconde moitié de IVe siècle, et en dehors du fait qu'il fut fonctionnaire de l'empire, on sait peu de choses de sa vie. Il nous est resté de cet auteur un traité en 5 parties dont La premiere traite des recrues et du recrutement, la seconde de l'organisation de la Légion et des anciennes armées romaines, la troisième des manoeuvres militaires en campagne, la quatrième de l'attaque et de la défense des places fortes, la cinquième quant à elle concerne la tactique navale. Steewech, commentateur de cette édition, fut professeur à Pont A Mousson. Ex libris gravé aux armes de Jean-Baptiste Peyer, seigneur de Fontenelle.

      Torrona (fingierter Druckort), ohne Drucker (Bergamo, Comino Ventura ?), 1592.. 4 Bll., 549 S., 1 weisses Bl., 119, 123(1) S., 1 Bl. 8°, Pergamentband der Zeit mit Resten von 2 Stoffschliessen.. Einband etwas gebräunt und leicht fleckig; Vorderdeckel etwas gewölbt; Deckel mit einigen kleinen Wurmlöchern; von den beiden Stoffschliessen sind nur noch kleine Reste der Schliessenbänder an den Deckeleinschnitten zu Schliessenbesfestigung vorhanden; Innendeckelbezüge (Spiegel) und Vorsätze etwas gebräunt und mit leichtem Papierverlust durch Wurmfraß; durchgehend seitlich wasserrandig - Wasserrand zu Beginn schwach und nur im weissen Rand, zum Schluß hin stärker werdend und mehr als die Hälfte der Seitengröße einnehmend; gering stockfleckig; manchmal Anstreichungen und Marginalien von alter Hand in Tinte; einige Blätter mit kleinen Knickspuren in den Ecken; Tinteneinträge von alter Hand auf Spiegeln und Vorsätzen; alter Besitzvermerk und 2 Stempel auf dem Titel. Die 3. Ausgabe (?) des erstmals 1589 erschienenen Werkes. Wie alle frühen Drucke des Werkes mit fingiertem Druckort (hier Torrona, andere Drucke Colonia) - der Druckort wird in Italien oder Deutschland vermutet. Der angenommene Mitverfasser bzw. Herausgeber Comino Ventura betrieb von 1578 bis 1616 eine recht bedeutende Druckerei in Bergamo, was zumindest ein Indiz dafür sein sollte, ihn selbst als den Drucker zu vermuten. 1598 erschienen zwei ebenfalls als "Terzia Impressione" bezeichnete Drucke des Werkes, von denen eine, abgesehen vom Druckvermerk, die gleiche Kollation wie die vorliegende Ausgabe aufweist - möglicherweise ist die vorliegende Ausgabe also eine zurückdatierte Titelauflage dieser Ausgabe.

        De plantis Aegypti liber. [...] Accessit etiam liber de Balsamo alias editus.

      Venice, Francesco de Franceschi, 1592.. 4to. 2 consecutively paginated parts. (4), 80 (but: 84), (8) ff. (Pt. 2 has separate title page). With woodcut printer's device to t. p. and 50 large woodcut plant illustrations (many page-sized). 18th century marbled wooden boards. All edges sprinkled in red.. First edition of the earliest treatise on the native Egyptian flora, the author's most important scientific work. The Italian physician and botanist Alpini (1553-1617) spent three years in Egypt studying botany and hygiene as a companion to the Venetian Consul Giorgio Emi. He was "among the first of the Italian physician-botanists of the 16th century of examine plants outside the context of their therapeutic uses. Today this work is best known for containing the first European illustration of the coffee plant" (Hünersdorff). Alpini writes: "I saw in the garden of Halybey the Turk a tree [...] which is the source of those seeds, very common there, which are called Ban or Bon; from them everyone, Egyptians and Arabs alike, prepare a decoction which they drink instead of wine and which is sold in public bars just as is wine here and they call it 'Caova'. These seeds are imported from the Arabian peninsula [...]" (f. 26r, transl.). The coffee plant is pictured on f. 26v, captioned "Bon". - Binding rather rubbed and bumped (especially the spine); trimmed somewhat closely at upper edge; occasional brownstaining throughout with the odd waterstain; slight defect to title page repaired by a former owner. A good copy from the library of Karl Martin and Siri Hilda Karolina Norrman (1900-95) with their joint bookplate on front pastedown. - Edit 16, CNCE 1244. BM-STC Italian 20. Adams A 803. IA 103.853. Ibrahim-Hilmy 32. Gay 1678. Wellcome I, 233. Durling 179. Nissen 20. Pritzel 111. Mueller 5 (& plate I). Hünersdorff I, 29-32.
