        Las seyscientas apotegmas de. Y otras obras en verso. Dirigidas al príncipe Nuestro Señor.

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.

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.

      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.

      Oxford: Joseph Barnes 1596 - lacking initial blank, faint browning around edges of last few leaves at either end pp. xiv, 646, square 8vo, recent half calf, original red stain to edges, good ‘Partly in order to continue channelling his proven disputatious skills against the Catholic church, Walsingham resolved in 1586 to endow at Oxford a special lectureship in controversial theology earmarked for Rainolds - who had in the meantime been licensed for the degree of DTh on 14 June 1585 - and convocation readily acquiesced. Walsingham promised to pay Rainolds £20 per annum and the latter, weary of the continued dissensions at Corpus, availed himself of the opportunity and resigned his fellowship in 1588, moving to Queen's College, where the provost, Henry Robinson, arranged room and board for him. Rainolds reciprocated by taking an active part in teaching at Queen’s.‘Rainolds lectured three times a week during term, drawing consistently large audiences: ‘never were any lectures in our memory so frequented as these in that university’, wrote Daniel Featley, ‘nor any in Cambridge, save those of Dr. [William] Whitaker’ (Abel redivivus, 2.226). The lectures specifically targeted the Jesuit Robert Bellarmine, then a professor of theology at the Gregorian University in Rome. Walsingham instructed his agents at Rome to send him transcripts of the lectures that Bellarmine delivered there and, upon arrival, they were forwarded to Rainolds for immediate public rebuttal. Of particular interest to Rainolds was the refutation of Bellarmine’s attempt to make the Apocryphal books an integral part of the Old Testament canon. True to his style and thoroughness, however, Rainolds left no stone unturned as he battled the Jesuit’ (ODNB).ESTC attests an interesting pattern of distribution of copies. Of the 47 recorded in UK libraries 27 are in Oxford or Cambridge colleges; in the US there are only 8 copies recorded in 7 locations. (ESTC S115552)

        ICONES, HABITUS GETUSQUE INDORUM AC LUSITANORUM PER INDIAM VIVENTIUM, TEMPLORUM AEDIUM, ARBORUM, FRUTUM, HERBARUM, AROMATUM].

      [Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz, ca. -1604]. 1596 - Twenty-nine (of thirty) plates, plus two maps and one extra plate. Oblong quarto. Contemporary Dutch vellum, gilt. Cockled, soiled. Marginal stains on two plates; one plate chipped in margin, not affecting text. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This extremely rare portfolio of plates consists of fine early impressions of Linschoten's famous views of Portuguese Asia. They are among the first eyewitness illustrations of the East to reach Europe, and were by far the most widely disseminated. Donald Lach has called them "a watershed in Europe's pictorial impression of Asia." They rank among the most influential images of the period, and appeared in the many subsequent editions of Linschoten's works. The illustrations were executed by Joannes and Baptista Doetechum from sketches brought back by Linschoten. Linschoten described the images of the people, places, methods of travel, and animals of Asia as "counterfeits from life," which would give a realistic representation of what he saw, but also a general perception of the reality of the distant East. In the present copy, a large, double-page view of Goa is missing, while two maps, one of Mozambique and one of Ascension Island, have been added. Also added is an untitled panorama of an Indonesian or Malaysian procession. This plate is likely connected to the 1598 Claesz publication of Houtman & Loewijk's account of the first Dutch expedition. It seems clear that the present item is one of the very rare issues of the plates produced for separate sale by Linschoten's publisher, Cornelis Claesz. Claesz sold the images and maps separately from the ITINERARIO., under a title translated as THE FIGURES AND MAPS OF JAN HUYGHEN. He used Latin and Dutch captions, as in our copy, in order to increase the images' marketability. Four similar sets of Linschoten plates are known, but only one of these, at the Atlas van Stolk in Rotterdam, has a titlepage. The other three copies which, like ours, lack titlepages, are at the Universiteitsbibliotheek in Amsterdam (containing all the plates), the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel and the Amsterdams Scheepvaort Museum (lacking some plates as well as the titlepage). They all have Latin and Dutch text beneath each image. In Tiele's MEMOIR (1867), on page 103 he discusses an edition of the ICONES. containing twenty-nine plates and no titlepage. Ernst Van Den Boogaart, who has produced a fine study of the publication history, iconographic significance, and coded messages of Linschoten's work, examines these issues in great detail. The Linschoten plates were produced to accompany his famed ITINERARIO., in which he gave his perceptions of the culture, customs, and societies of Asia. Linschoten had lived in Goa for six years from 1583, and while he never ventured far from the Portuguese capital, he did have an "avaricious thirst for knowledge which enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China" (Boies Penrose). He released his work at a time when Europe was desperately in need of knowledge about the Far East. A wonderful collection of Asian and early travel iconography, in an exceptionally rare edition.

First edition of all three parts, and EXCEEDINGLY RARE. "This important work contains all the knowledge and learning related to the East and West Indies and navigations to those parts that was available at the end of the sixteenth century. It was held in such high esteem that for nearly a century a copy was given to each ship sailing to India as a guide to the sailing directions. The fact that most copies were in continual use is in no doubt the reason that FINE COPIES , EXPECIALLY WITH ALL CORRECT PLATES AND MAPS , ARE SO VERY RARE" (Hill). Linschoten travelled extensively, he went to Goa between 1583 and 1589, and joined Willem Barents's first and second voyages into the Kara Sea in 1594 and 1595, and he combined his first hand accounts with translations of original Spanish and Portuguese documents. "Linschoten's work, along with Hakluyt's, served as a direct stimulus to the building of the vast English and Dutch overseas empires" (Hill).

Leaf 196 is misnumbered 197, followed by the correctly numbered leaf 197. 4°, contemporary limp vellum (lacking the two buttons, but preserving the ties), fore-edge cover extensions, vertical manuscript title on spine, covers with two manuscript ruled borders.

Oval green printed paper ticket of Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho in upper outer corner of front pastedown endleaf. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of the author's earliest work. St. Bruno, founder of the Carthusians, was born in Cologne about 1030. He was educated there, and afterwards at Reims and Tours, where he studied under Berengar. Ordained at Cologne, in 1057 he was recalled to Reims to head the cathedral school, oversee the schools of the diocese and in addition the be canon and diocesan chancellor. After falling out with a new archbishop, he was deprived of all offices and had to flee in 1076. On the deposition of the archbishop in 1080, Bruno was put forward as a candidate for the see, but Philip I of France successfully opposed his appointment. After this Bruno retired, with six companions, to a desolate mountainous area called Chartreuse, near Grenoble, and there founded the Carthusian order in 1084. Six years later Pope Urban II called him to Rome, offering the archbishopric of Reggio. Bruno refused, and withdrew to a desert in Calabria, where he established two other monasteries, and died in 1101. He wrote commentaries on the Psalms and the Pauline Epistles; some other works by namesakes have been attributed to him.@Provenance: Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho (1846?1910), born in the freguesia de Cabaços, concelho de Alvaiázere, came to Lisbon, was brought into the business of his uncle / father?in?law, and acquired a great fortune importing exotic lumber. He was a passionate book collector, frequenting auctions and bookshops from the 1860s until shortly prior to his death. Among the sales he attended and purchased at were those of Sir Gubian (1867), the Visconde de Juromenha (1887), José da Silva Mendes and Jorge César de Figanière (1889), the Condes de Linhares (1895), and José Maria Nepomuceno (1887).---- Palau 146203. @Catálogo collectivo, século XVI M54.

        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

      Appresso Roberto Meietti, Venezia (Venice) 1596 - 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.
