        Primera, segunda y tercera parte de la Araucana

      1596 - Condemning the cruelty towards the rebellious Araucanian Natives of Chile; a masterpiece poem of the 16th century. 1596. Perpiñan. Sanson Arbus. In 12mo (139 mm x 73 mm). 17 ff. + 323 + 2 ff. + 1 [blank]. Contemporary vellum, ties missing. A fine example of this rare book; only faint foxing spots, entirely genuine example. Third complete edition, comprising the three parts –the first edition, 1569, only contains the first part. The Araucana is set in 37 cantos in octavas, narrating the Spanish conquest of the Araucanian Indians, under the command of Garcia Hurtado de Mendoza (1535 – 1609), Governor of Chile and later Viceroy of Peru. It is one of most reliable sources on the conquest of the region, undisputed in its veracity and accuracy. Ercilla was well aware of the norm demanded to the chroniclers of the Indies: truth in what was seen and lived “adtestatio rei visae”. The situation in Chile demanded the expansion south, deep within land of the fierce Araucanos, who needed to be pacified. The recently appointed Viceroy of Peru sent out an expedition to do so -which lasted from 1555 until 1562-, commanded by his own son, Garcia Hurtado de Mendoza; Ercilla first heard of the expedition from Alderete whilst in England, where he was as part of the group accompanying Philip to marry Mary Tudor. Ercilla´s adventurous spirit was awakened and shortly parted for Chile, participating in the young Governor´s campaign against the insurgent Indians from 1557. Ercilla was apparently distressed by the cruelty and brutality employed in the conquest and warfare with the tribe, and wrote the Araucana to express his feelings. The Araucana stands as one of the earliest poems dealing with the conquest of South American natives; furthermore, it is an early source of knowledge of the Chilean tribe, its customs, and warfare technics, as well as colonial officers posted to America. This edition is rare, with no copies having sold at auction in over 50 years. Palau, 80420. Salvá, 581. Medina, BHA, 372. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Reysen und Bottschafften, welche auff gnedigsten Befelch ... Keyser Ferdinadt und Maximiliani II. Der gantzen Christenheit zu höchsten nutzen glücklich vollendet hat. 4 Bl., 536 S. Schlichter Pappbd d. 18. Jahrh. (berieben, Kanten teils beschabt).

      Frankfurt, Andree Wechsels Erben, 1596.. . Äußerst seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des bedeutenden Gesandtschaftsberichtes in vier Briefen, gesammelt erstmals 1589 in Paris erschienen. Ogier Ghislain de Busbecq (1522 - 1592) war Diplomat in den Diensten der Habsburger in England wie in Spanien. "Im Herbst des Jahres 1554 schickt Ferdinand I. Busbecq als Botschafter zu Süleyman I. nach Konstantinopel, damit er einen Waffenstillstand mit dem Osmanischen Reich aushandele, um das geschwächte Reich der Habsburger zu entlasten. Busbecq bricht am 23. November 1554 von Wien auf und reist mit seinem Gefolge im Wagen zunächst nach Buda, von dort auf der Donau nach Belgrad, anschließend wieder auf dem Landweg über Nisch, Sofia und Adrianopel nach Konstantinopel. Am 20. Januar 1555 in Konstantinopel angekommen, findet Busbecq den Sultan jedoch nicht in seiner Residenz vor. Er erfährt, dass sich Sultan Suleiman gerade auf Reisen in Kleinasien befindet, so dass er ihm weit in den Osten, in die alte Königsstadt Amasya, nachreisen muss. Nach dreiwöchigem Warten reist Busbecq ihm über Ankara hinterher, um schließlich am 7. April 1555 in Amasya in einer Audienz mit dem Sultan einen sechsmonatigen Waffenstillstand auszuhandeln. Als er den Sultan endlich antrifft, hat dieser augenscheinlich gerade keine Lust auf Friedensgespräche und weist ihn mit den Worten 'Güzel, Güzel', 'schön, schön', ab. Zum Trost schenkt er Busbecq ein paar Tulpen- und Hyazinthenzwiebeln, dazu einige Fliederpflänzchen. All dies bringt Busbecq mit nach Hause und führt diese Pflanzen unter Vermittlung seines Freundes Charles de l'Ecluse (latin.: Carolus Clusius) dadurch in Westeuropa ein. Auf ihn geht die Bezeichnung der Tulpe (türkisch und persisch Lale) als Tulipam zurück: anscheinend hatte er den Namen des Turbans (türkisch tülbent), an dem Blüten oft getragen wurden, für den Namen der Pflanze selbst gehalten" (Wikipedia). Im November 1555 verlässt Busbeck Wien erneut und bricht wieder nach Konstantinopel auf, wo er bis 1562 für sechs Jahre als Botschafter in Konstantinopel wirkt. "His letters contain perhaps the most interesting of all accounts of Turkish life, and his description and analysis of the Ottoman state can hardly be superseded" (Blackmer). - Exlibris v. Breitenbauch. Die letzten drei Blatt mit Loch im weißen Rand. Vereinzelt zeitgenöss. Anstreichungen. Gutes und breitrandiges Exemplar. Kein Exemplar im JAP seit 1950. - VD 16, B 9867. Göllner 2188.

        Arrest de la cour des grands iours seant a Lyon, du 27 novembre 1596 Pour le reiglement de la vente du bein des mineurs BOUND WITH: Extraict des registres des grands iours (caption title) [27 novembre 1596] BOUND WITH: Extraict des registres des grands iours [5 septembre 1596]

      Lyon: Thibaud Ancelin, 1596. FIRST EDITION. 8vo., 3 parts in 1 volume. I: 1 f. (tear through title-page), 6 pp. II: pp. 3-7. III: 5 pp. including separate title-page. Old blue wrappers, preserved in fitted cloth case (Cloverleaf Studios) SAMMELBAND OF THREE RARE 16TH-CENTURY "ARRETS" FROM THE "GRANDS-JOURS DE LYON" ISSUED IN THE YEAR OF ITS CREATION (1596). * "The Grands-Jours were assizes or extraordinary sessions, which the parliaments and other superior courts held, from time to time, in some city within their jurisdiction, at a distance from their ordinary place of sitting, to hear the complaints which the inhabitants of the province might make against the judges and other judicial officers who had jurisdiction there; and to procure, by their presence, expedition in the dispatch of affairs, and particularly of criminal causes, &c. The rare occurrence and solemnity of these assizes, together with the importance of the causes tried therein, and the rank of the persons by whom they were held, probably gave rise to the appellation of Grands-Jours. [...] Charles le Bel caused some Grands-Jours to be held at Paris, to inquire into the conduct of certain individuals accused of malversation; they were capitally punished. The Grands-Jours, which were held after that time in other cities, were established by letters-patent and commission of the king, to decide, in the last resort, on criminal causes, and civil causes to a certain amount, in the provinces, bailiwicks, seneschalsies and 'pays' named in the king's letters, and only during the time appointed by the same. It was particularly their business to procure for the inhabitants of the provinces greater expedition and a diminution of expense, in the prosecution of their suits. [...] Such were the Grands-Jours held at Bordeaux, in the reign of Charles VII.; at Angers in 1539 ; at Moulins in 1534, 1540, 1559; at Poitiers in 1454, 1530, 1541, 1567 and 1629; at Riom in 1546; at Tours in 1533 and 1547; at Troves in 1402, 1535 and 1583; at Lyons in 1596; at Clermont in Auvergne in 1665-6, and at Puy-en-Velay, for Languedoc, in 1666. [...] The ordinance of Blois of 1579, ordained (art. 206) that the Grands-Jours should be held every year, and directed that the governors and deputy-governors of the provinces where the Grands-Jours might be held, and also the bailiffs and seneschals, should be present, to see that the decisions of the courts were carried into execution. [...] Before the parliament of Brittany was made a sovereign court, the parliament of Paris used to send deputies every year, to hold the Grands-Jours at Rennes and Nantes. [...] Besides the Grands-Jours held by the sovereign courts, the name of Grands-Jours was given to some tribunals which were established by various princes and seigneurs, to decide on appeals from the judges of their respective jurisdictions. Grands-Jours are no longer held in France. [...] The only printed decisions of the Grands-Jours that the compiler of this Catalogue has been able to find, are those of the Grands-Jours of Troyes, Poitiers and Clermont" (SOURCE: Catalogue of books on foreign law: founded on the collection presented by Charles Purton Cooper to the Society of Lincoln's Inn, 1849, pp. 105-106). * Ad 1: Laws passed in the Lyon court that dealt with the rights of MINERS, including inheritance and property rights, as well as the "execution d'arrêts de prise de corps." The legislation is signed "Du Tillet" and was "Faict a Lyon esdits grands Iours le 21 Aout 1596." OCLC records only two copies worldwide: Univ. Erfurt and Bibl. Municipale de Lyon. * Ad 2: Further legislation on the rights of miners, including how to "faire exposer en ventre les meubles des mineurs" and how to arrive at the prices of such, without prejudice or fraud (!). The legislation is signed "Voysin" and is dated 21 novembre 1596. Page 7 records publication information and is signed "I Croppet" (dated 5 decembre 1596).

UNBOUND as issued, with the edges untrimmed. Final two pages with discoloration along early fold, affecting three lines of text with loss of a few letters. Preserved in a fitted cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio No other copy seems to be recorded. * Extremely early Royal edicts and regulations for Cabarets, Taverns, and Hotels, with special consideration given to issues of taxation. Herein are precise tax figures and detailed methods of payment (including penalties for non-payment) toward taxes on food and wine. Of particular interest: the capacity of Judges to rule on various crimes committed by the proprietors of said businesses, as well as the functions of the "Huissiers" and "Sergents" (two of the least-important officeholders appointed by the King). * Our pamphlet must be closely related to the unique Royal Act (Folembray: January 17, 1596) Edict, held by the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, namely the "Lettres de jussion rendues pour l'execution du reglement donne sur le fait des hôtelleries, cabarets et tavernes et pour le recouvrement de la finance de ceux qui n'ont pas paye leurs taxes ou qui ont refuse de le faire" (S.l., n.d.) -- the BnF example is paginated "17-23 pp." (sic) and therefore must have been extracted from a larger work, whereas ours is obviously a singular publishing effort. * In outstanding original condition.

        La pratica di prospettiva

      1596. SIRIGATTI, Lorenzo. La pratica di prospettiva. Comprised of engraved title-page, 3 ff. text, 65 engraved plates (including the engraved half-title for the Libro Secondo), plus a woodcut printer's device at the end of the Libro Primo. Text on the verso of all plates in the first book with exception of plates 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 34, and 43, no text in the second book. Folio, 403 x 265 mm, bound in English eighteenth-century calf, red morocco spine label stamped in gilt. Venice: Girolamo Franceschi, 1596. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, dedicated to Ferdinando de' Medici by Sirigatti on 20 July 1596. La pratica di prospettiva is considered by many to be one of the most elegant works on perspective, and places Lorenzo Sirigatti among the important writers of his time on the subject: Barbaro, Vignola, and Egnatio Danti. "Questa è la più elegante delle edizioni di libri prospettici pei tipi, pei caratteri, per la carta" (Cicognara). The work is at once attractive and instructive. Libro Primo begins with twelve plates discussing the basics, depicting simple geometrical forms and their perspectival projections. This is followed by a series of 31 increasingly more complicated projections of stairs, facades, theater floor plans, column designs, portals, a lute, and a violin. The Millard catalogue draws specific attention to Sirigatti's contribution to stage design in the first book, noting that "he is the first to mention that the full effect of the perspective frame, for instance in a stage set, can be enjoyed only by those sitting along the main axis." This is demonstrated on plate 43. Almost all the illustrations are accompanied by concise one-page explanations. Libro Secondo eschews textual explanation and lets the viewer experience the remarkable illustrations. They consist of a series of Escher-like solids floating in space created to demonstrate ways of representing shadows on complex polyhedric solids. A Mannerist tour-de-force, these represent some of the finest illustrations of their kind. It has been suggested by Samuel Edgerton that Galileo studied Sirigatti's solids to help train his eye to see the contours of the moon. Some very light scattered foxing and marginal staining, spine with some early restoration. The title-page has been trimmed with some loss as is true in many copies. Complete with the woodcut colophon at the end of volume one. PROVENANCE: The Earls of Macclesfield with their blind-stamped coat-of-arms on the decorative title-page and the first two leaves. The South Library ex-libris stamp on inside front paste-down. Cicognara 860. Fowler 336 (incomplete). Millard, Italian 129. Mortimer, Italian 479 (both copies incomplete).

Pergamino del siglo XVII, rotulación posterior en lomo; estuche en holandesa, lomo en piel con adornos dorados. Edición príncipe de la obra más afamada del poeta crodobés y que supone una de las primeras muestras del género epigramático o paremiológico en la literatura española. Recoge 707 sentencias y máximas morales. Muestran la amplia experiencia vital de Rufo y se presentan en un estilo discreto dichos, aforismos, breves y brillantes reflexiones, en las que, además de la sagacidad y sensibilidad de su autor, se encierra la vida cotidiana de una época. La disposición de las máximas es la de breves anécdotas selladas con un dicho agudo. Como tantas otras obras de la literatura de los Siglos de Oro, constituye un breviario y boceto de las costumbres y usos de la época y revelan ingenio y donaire en el autor. Fue cronista de Juan de Austria, al que acompañó en la campaña de Granada contra los moriscos sublevados en 1568, y con quien compartió galera en la batalla de Lepanto. Su obra fue elogiada por Cervantes en el escrutinio de la biblioteca de Don Quijote. Es obra rara, de la que el CCPB sólo recoge cinco ejemplares en bibliotecas españolas.

        Primera, segunda y tercera parte de la Araucana de don

      Perpiñán, Sanson Arbus 1596 - 12º (13,9 x 7,3 cm) 17 h. inc. port., 323 fols., y 2 h. Pergamino de época. Tercera edición completa, con las tres partes. En treinta y siete cantos, en octavas reales, se narra la conquista española de las tierras araucanas dentro del territorio que hoy ocupa Chile. La empresa abarcó los gobiernos de Pedro de Valdivia y García Hurtado de Mendoza, a quien el propio Alonso de Ercilla acompañó hasta territorio chileno, en 1557. El autor tuvo presente la norma reconocida por los cronistas de las historias verdaderas de Indias, que exigía adtestatio rei visae, la verdad de lo visto y lo vivido. En 1569, en el taller madrileño de Pierres Cossin, fue impresa por primera vez la primera parte de La Araucana. La distancia espacial y temporal con respecto a los hechos en ella narrados, le había permitido a Alonso de Ercilla reelaborar el material acopiado en el escenario americano hasta dotarlo de la forma poética y el propósito último pretendidos. El éxito de la publicación no se vio defraudado por el que obtuvieron la segunda parte, en 1578, reimpresa ese mismo año, y la tercera, ya en 1589. En 1590, en Madrid, por Pedro Madrigal, se publican la tres partes juntas. Del inmediato éxito editorial dan cuenta las cifras: se contabilizan dieciocho ediciones de La Araucana hasta 1632. Perfecto ejemplar, en su estado original. Palau, 80420; Salvá, 581 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Dialoghi Del Sig. Speron Speroni, Nobile Padovano Di Nuovo Ricorretti; A' Quali Sono Aggiunti Molti Altri Non Piu Stampati e Di Piu L'Apologia Dei Primi. Con Licentia de' Superiori & Privilegi

      Venezia (Venice): Appresso Roberto Meietti, 1596. Vellum. Fine. Book. [7] + 598 pp., with several errors in pagination (including 433-454 omitted, and 563-592 repeated, in numbering). This is the work of well-known Padovan Humanist from the Renaissance. He reflects on love, women, pregnancy, family care, discord, language, rhetoric, history, fortune, Virgil, etc. Perhaps Speroni is remembered most for his championing the use of vernacular language in scholarship, and thus this important work and edition is rendered in Italian. Interior has some occasional soilage, but remarkably clean nonetheless, and binding is tight. last dedication page has small tear cutout in lower corner, not coming close to affecting text. Vellum is probably eighteenth century. It has soilage but remains quite healthy and attractive nonetheless. Spine has seven raised bands and green black label in one panel with "Speroni Dialoghi" still bright. Shelfwear is relatively light for vintage of binding. One two inch long by 1/2 inch at most area where vellum rubbed raw on back board. Was in collection of Harvard College Library. Only evidence of ex-lib is neat Harvard bookplate, two small/discreet stamps on blank back of title page (one showing 1921 date, other of deaccession, both stamps 1 inch or less in widest span) and a tiny imprint on first dedication page.

        Phytopinax [Greek title] feu envmeratio plantarum ab Herbarijs noftro feculo defcriptarum cum earum differentijs

      Basle: Per Sebastianum Henricpetri, 1596. Small quarto, pp (22), 669, (9), woodcut vignette to t.p., woodcut portrait, woodcut colophon, various small woodcut initials, title page slightly tender at the margins, and lacking the top corner, though no loss of print, pages browned at margins, but otherwise in remarkably good condition. [Bound with] Icones Plantarum aliqvot hactensis. I page of text, 8 woodcut plates of plants. Contemporary vellum a little marked, and with slight loss towards the base of the spine, Greek title, author and date in ink in probably a Victorian hand on spine, [the date is incorrect by five years], a very early ink inscription on the front endpaper which also carries a modern bookplate lightly attached. [RARE. Although not containing the fine woodcuts of the later work, this preceedes the Pinax by 27 years and is a remarkable foreshadowing of the binomial system - Bauhin states in the preface that, for the sake of clearness, he has applied one name to each plant, and added also some easily recognisable character. This has led many commentators to describe him as the founder of the natural system. Overall a remarkably good copy of an extremely scarce work] .. Vellum. Very Good.
