        Horæ Recreationis, sive Facetiarum et Apophtegematum Centuriae II. In usum inclyta Academia Witebergenis Italice discit, collectæ à Catharino Dulci

      Witebergæ [i.e., Wittenberg]: Ex Officina Cratoniana, 1593. 12mo. Interleaved. A-C8 D1. INCOMPLETE, with 25 leaves only (of 40); lacking D2 through F8. Vellum, new endpapers. Bookplate. One interleaf bears manuscript translations into French of two of the anecdotes, in what appears to be an 17th- or early 18th-century hand. NOT IN OCLC; not in Hunt . Rare collection of sayings, anecdotes and jokes written and compiled from Francesco Guicciardini by Catharinus Dulcis, for young students of Italian. Dulcis was an itinerant scholar of languages, and evidently the first professor of French and Italian at the University of Marburg, who published his during a sojourn in Wittenburg in the 1590s. No copies of any edition of this book are recorded in OCLC, and a thorough search of online catalogues throughout Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, and France, and Switzerland, has turned up only a single copy (University of Jena) of this peculiar and very interesting book - presumably the first by Dulcis - printed in Wittenberg, whose university provided a home to Martin Luther and Philip Melanchton - and where Prince Hamlet himself studied before returning to Elsinore upon his father's death. The dedicatee of Dulcis' little book makes this Danish-Wittenburg connection all the more intriguing: Dulcis dedicates his book to the learned nobleman, Doctor Holger Rosenkrantz, of Denmark. Albeit incomplete, a genuinely rare and fascinating book

Pietro Alagona (Syracusa 1549 - Roma 1624) Entrou na Companhia de Jesus em 1564. Ensinou filosofia e teologia. As suas primeiras obras foram publicadas sob o nome de família da sua mãe - Givarra. Depois passou a usar o seu nome Alagoa; a sua obra mais conhecida é este "Compendium" das obras de Martinho Azpilcueta. "Enciclopédia Verbo Séc. XXI.

        Commentarius de Praecipuis Divinationum Generibus.

      Frankfurt apud Andrae Wecheli heredes, Claudium Marnium, & Ioan. Aubrium, 1593 - 8vo. pp [xxxii] 738 [l]. Roman, Italic and Greek letter, historiated woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, printer's device of unicorn with cornucopia on tp. and verso of last, two fold-out synoptic tables after preface, faded contemp MS ex libris at foot of t.p. of George Lindner. Slight age yellowing, a crisp and clean copy, contemp vellum over boards, blind ruled compartments on spine with title in ink, remains of ties, title and author inked on foreedge, all edges blue. Last edition published before Peucer's death, with a new, lengthy preface by the author. Going through four previous Latin editions, and later translated to French, "it seems to have been the most influential of his numerous writings which were concerned with the varied fields of medicine, astronomy, mathematics, natural history, and psychology", (Thorndike VI p. 493). On the whole the work approves of divination in natural circumstances - reading dreams, for instance, or the stars, but agrees with the Bible in condemning certain branches of divination related to demons and witchcraft. Peucer's bias is unflinchingly Protestant, denying the possibility of Miracles, and he attributing the successfulness of relics and invocations of saints to demons rather than divinity. "After discussing divination in general, he turns to oracles and theomancy, then to magic - which he thus incorrectly implies is a variety of divination, whereas the opposite is true - then to divination from entrails, to augury and aruspicina, to lot-casting under which he puts geomancy and divining from names and numbers and to dreams and their interpretation. Next he considers medical prognostications, meteorology and weather prediction, physiognomy and chiromancy, astrology, and last prodigies and portents" (Thorndike VI p. 495). He is highly suspicious of Alchemy as a purely devilish art on the one hand, but on the other entirely approving of Astrology - which he himself put to practice and considered essential to the study of medicine. 
Casper Peucer (1525 - 1602) was a prominent physician and scholar who studied with Melanchthon (and married his daughter) at the University of Wittenberg where he was appointed in turn professor of philosophy, mathematics, and medicine - his pupil John Garcaeus called Peucer the "most celebrated professor of mathematics in this academy". Peucer's religious views were influenced by his close relationship with Melanchthon, which deviated from the local Lutheranism in its Calvinist colourings, and when Melanchthon died in 1560 Peucer became a prominent religious authority. Although he climbed the academic ranks quickly, and gained appointment as physician to Augustus I, Elector of Saxony, his "Crypto-Calvinist" beliefs were his downfall. In 1574, letters discovered by his patron that expressed a desire to convert Augustus to Calvinism led to a twelve year imprisonment in Königstein Fortress, an experience he talks about at length in the introduction to the present work. After his release from prison in 1586, he became physician to the duke of Anhalf, where he remained until his death in 1602. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Americae Pars Borealis, Florida, Baccalaos, Canada, Corterealis. A Cornelio De Ludaeis in Luce (m) Edita. IBID. Brasilia et Peruvia

      Antwerp, 1593. 365mm x 505mm & 360mm x 420mm, together 2 double-page engraved maps, fine dark impressions. This important and rare pair of maps show the Americas at the end of the sixteenth century. They were derived largely from the world map by Petrus Plancius (1592) and the North America is dominated by a wide northwest passage. Although the maps were an advance on existing maps, the lack of success of the atlas hampered their influence. Together, they are among the earliest separate printed maps of North and South America.

'E Bibliotheca Oelsneriana' inscribed to verso of FFEP, remains of faint circular institional stamp to verso of title. A large copy with good margins, but with some softening to fore-edge at extremities. Small hole to head of A2, causing loss of a single letter to running title of verso. Discrete paper repairs to base of title and A2. Some worming to lower margin. Occasional ink underlining, else a crisp copy. The first edition of Elias Hasenmuller's history of the Jesuit Order, with an preface by Polykarp Leyser (1552-1610). Hasenmuller's experiences in training as a novice in the Society of Jesus, combined with his conversion to the Lutheran reformed Church in 1587, led to the composition of this critical account. As one of the earliest accounts of the vanguard of the counter-reformation composed by an ex-Jesuit, it was unsurprisingly swiftly translated into the vernacular (Frankfurt, 1594). Adams H 80.

        Chronica del famoso cavallero Cid ruy Diez Campeador

      \"El Cid\" With The Respected Editorial Revisions Of Lopez De Velorado[EL CID]. Chronica del famoso cavallero Cid ruy Diez Campeador. Burgos: Philippe de Junta y Juan Baptista Varesio, 1593.Sixth publication, with the respected editorial revisions of Lopez de Velorado;this edition is considered very true to the best original text and much better thanthe corrupted intervening editions. Folio. 318pp. Title page in red and black with woodcut coat of arms.Old vellum. Gently washed and sized. This edition is known for usual page spotting, here absent: text is generally fresh and clean. Title page has some restoration, affecting three letters. Very well margined. Overall a very good copy in an appropriate old binding. Housed in a custom quarter brown morocco clamshell, gilt-stamped.Early editions of the Chronicles (or History) of the eleventh century knight El Cid are quite rare. The book is part of the general chronicles and legends of Spain: this dealing with the exploits of the valorous knight who freed Valencia from the Moors. In the twelfth century his adventures are first chronicled in Poema de mio Cid. Further stories and ballads build on the legend through the fourteenth century until El Cid has been glorified into a hero of knightly and Christian virtue and patriotic zeal.The most famous retellings outside of Spain are Southey in English 1808 and, of course, Corneille in French in his famous play of 1637.The text at hand is an excellent study of the manners and customs of the era of the Knights of Spain; highly sought after by bibliophiles and appreciated by historians.HBS 66533.$10,000

        [Liber canonis]. Kutub al-Qanun fi at-tibb ma'a ba'ad talifihi wa-huwa 'ilm al-mantiq wa-'ilm al-tabi'i wa-'ilm al-kalam.

      Rome, Typographia Medicea, 1593.. Folio. 3 parts in one. (12), 610 pp., (1 blank f.), 268, (66), 85, (1) pp. Collation erratic at start; includes blank f. at end of part 1. With ornamental woodcut head and tail-pieces, text in double rule border. Later morocco, spine rebacked.. First edition of the original Arabic text of what is perhaps the most important medical text of the Middle Ages. Based on Galen, Hippocrates and Aristotle as well as the observations of Avicenna (980-1037) himself and other Muslim physicians, it forms a compendium of Greek and Muslim medical knowledge. It remained the basic medical reference work in the Islamic world until the 19th century, while the Latin translation by Gerard of Cremona (1114-1187) was of great influence in western Europe from the 13th century onwards. The Arabic types used here were designed by Robert Granjon for the Typographia Medicea, set up by Ferdinando de' Medici at the behest of Pope Gregory XIII for printing in Arabic and other oriental languages. "Also contains Avicenna's philosophical work the Kitab al-Najat" (OCLC). - Variant with Arabic title. Occasional Arabic marginalia, some browning and waterstaining throughout (more pronounced in second and third part); professional repairs throughout.
