        De Romanæ Ecclesiæ idololatria [sic], in cultu sanctorum, reliquiarum, imaginum, aquæ, salis, olei, aliarumque rerum consecratarum, & sacramenti eucharistiæ, operis inchoati libri duo .

      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. Ernst Van Den Boogaart, JAN HUYGEN VAN LINSCHOTEN AND THE MORAL MAP OF ASIA, passim, esp. pp.161-75. Lach, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE II, p.94.

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.

Vélin à recouvrement, titre manuscrit au dos, tranches jaspées. Reliure de l’époque. 132 X 76 mm. RARE ET BELLE EDITION DES PREMIERES ŒUVRES DE DESPORTES EN CONDITION D’EPOQUE. Elle contient les Amours de Diane, les Amours d’Hippolyte, les Dernières Amours, les Elégies, les Stances, les Imitations de l’Arioste Roland furieux, la mort de Rodomont l’imitation de la complainte de Bradamant, Angélique, les Diverses Amours, les Bergeries et masquarades et les Epitaphes. Tchemerzine, II, 888 ; Brunet, II, 648 ; Barbier, Ma bibliothèque poétique, I, n°16. Philippe Desportes (1546-1606) occupe une place de premier ordre dans l’histoire littéraire du XVIème siècle Son influence stylistique s’est imposée sur presque deux générations de poètes, du règne d’Henri II à celui de Louis XIII. Protégé par Henri IV après avoir été l'un des intimes et des conseillers les plus écoutés d'Henri III, il fut lecteur de la chambre du roi et conseiller d’Etat. Abbé mondain, il fréquenta beaucoup le salon de la comtesse de Retz à partir du début des années 1570 : il y croisait souvent Ronsard dont il devint le rival déclaré après la publication de son recueil Les Premières Œuvres, en 1573, un an après l’insuccès de la Franciade. (N. Ducimetière). Surnommé le « Tibulle français » pour la douceur de ses vers, Philippe Desportes est considéré comme occupant une place de transition non négligeable entre la Pléiade et Malherbe. Ce recueil fut immédiatement accueilli avec enthousiasme. Ce retour à la veine pétrarquiste et surtout la découverte par les lecteurs français de la manière affectée, douceâtre des Italiens de la fin du Quattrocento suscitèrent un très vif engouement. « Comme Ronsard, Philippe Desportes apporta un soin extrême aux éditions de ses vers. Impression après impression, il ajouta, retrancha ou modifia des poèmes, cherchant sans cesse à parfaire ses Premières Œuvres » (N. Ducimetière).

His text on surgery was first published in 1573 and became the standard work on the subject in the next century. The work is famous for being very well illustrated with large clear cuts mainly of surgical instruments and tools. 2 full page illustrations show operations being performed on the battlefield, in the second the surgeons are Turks with whom the Venetians were at war for many years. 3 half page illustrations show trepanning the skulls of 3 different patients in home settings with family and pets present. The text is a compendium of classical writings on surgery but Croce also draws on the work of recent medical writers. He describes cranial and cerebral disease and also makes important recommendations for the treatment of wounds including gunshot wounds. Images sent on request.
