        Historia Belgica nostri potissimum temporis Belgii sub quatuor Burgundis & totidem Austriacis principibus coniunctionem & gubernationem breviter. Turbas autem, bella et mutationes tempore regis Philippi, Carli V. Caesaris filii, ad annum usque 1598. plenius complectens, conscripta. [Cologne, A. Mylius, 1598]. Folio. With letterpress title-page in engraved border with scenes of trade and war (Verduyn, pl. XIV), additional engraved medallion portrait of the author mounted on blank back of title-page, by Hendrik Hondius the Elder, double-page engraved map of the Netherlands, by Frans Hogenberg and 22 engraved portraits on 19 plates. Contemporary vellum.

      First Latin edition, with Frans Hogenberg's original early map of the Low Countries and a very rare additional portrait of Van Meteren by Hendrik Hondius the Elder, dated 1599. Van Meteren's History first appeared in a 1593 German translation by the same publisher, based on an unauthorized Dutch text. The Latin translation of the German was updated with events up to 1598 without Van Meteren's knowledge. Mylius's Cologne editions include Hogenberg's original map, engraved ca. 1587. The first authorized edition, in the original Dutch, appeared in 1599 in Delft, and includes a copy of Hogenberg's map. Van Meteren's work was the first history of the Netherlands to treat the revolt against the Spanish up to the foundation of the Dutch Republic but was banned by the States-General, though the ban was lifted six months later. With the bookplate of Boies Penrose and the names of J. Hoare and Thomas Smith on first fly-leaf and title-page. Bottom of spine damaged; some old annotations in the margins; some stains. Good copy.

According to Pforzheimer, Elizabeth was apparently only dissuaded from hanging Hayward by Bacon?s comment, after reading the book, that the author was not guilty of treason but only of felony since he had stolen the better part from Tacitus. Following the accession of James I, Hayward secured a large practice in the court of arches, and in 1610 was named historiographer of the newly founded Chelsea College. STC 12997.

      Paris, Guillaume Chaudière 1599 - in-8, [20] ff. n. ch. (titre, dédicace, table en italien, privilège), 348 ff., texte sur deux colonnes (italien et français en regard), [4] ff. n. ch. de table en français, vélin souple, dos lisse, traces de lacets (reliure de l'époque). Manque de cuir le long du plat supérieur, surcharges manuscrites d'époque à l'encre. Première édition française. Della Ragione di Statofut originellement publié en 1589 à Venise (mais dont la version définitive n'est que de 1598) ; une seconde édition française fut publiée en 1606-1607 par Pierre de Deimier sous le titre de Maximes d'Estat, militaires et politiques (Paris, Toussaint Du Bray, 1606-1607). Le Piémontais Giovanni Botero (1544-1617), ancien Jésuite exclu en 1580 de la Compagnie pour ses difficiles relations avec ses supérieurs,s'était fixé après son départ à Milan auprès de Charles Borromée, dont il devint le secrétaire particulier en 1582. Après la mort de son protecteur en 1584, il entra successivement au service de Charles-Emmanuel Ier de Savoie (1584-1586), puis du cardinal Frédéric Borromée, neveu de l'archevêque de Milan (1586-1598). Comme son nom l'indique, Della Ragione di Stato est entièrement consacré à la notion de raison d'Etat, au sens que Machiavel avait donné à cette expression, et s'inscrit d'ailleurs parfaitement dans la lignée du Florentin, en dépit d'une opposition de façade, alors nécessaire pour neutraliser ce que le pragmatisme machiavélien avait d'offensant pour la pensée chrétienne. Cecci posé, hostile à la vision développée alors par Jean Bodin, et qui inspira le parti dit des Politiques en France, Botero s'inscrit complètement dans une vision de Contre-Réforme : outre une alliance étroite entre les pouvoirs temporel et spirituel et une forte confessionnalisation de la politique, il prône un développement et un usage intensif de nouveaux savoirs de gouvernement, dont l'objectif doit être avant tout la conservation de l'État. Son texte fut lu au-delà de la Péninsule et inspira en France le parti dit des Dévôts, qui allait constituer l'opposition la plus sérieuse à la politique royale menée à partir de Henri IV. Brunet I, 1142-1143. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Oldenburgische Chronicon. Das ist Beschreibung Der Löblichen Uhralten Grafen zu Oldenburg und Delmenhorst. Von welchen die jessige Könige zu Dennemarck und Herzogen zu Holstein entsprossen

      [Colophon:] Oldenburg: Heirs of Warner Berendt, 1599., 1599. folio. ff. [43], pp. 494, [16]. engraved title, 1 double-page engraved plate of Oldenburg, 63 engravings in the text (5 full-page, incl. a portrait of the author), 3 double-page genealogical tables, & numerous text woodcuts (2 full-page). woodcut ornaments & initials. A very nice copy, bound in early blind-paneled vellum, overlapping fore-edges (bit rubbed & spotted, 2 short splits in joints, scattered light spotting & browning, occasional marginal dampstains). 2 old ownership entries on title: Otto Hartmann (1627) H.Blome (1755); Blome's bookplate on front paste-down. First Edition of this finely illustrated chronicle of the German principality of Oldenburg by protestant theologian and historian, Hermann Hamelmann. It is the most valuable early printed source for the history of the ancient and noble House of Oldenburg, from which the Emperors of Russia, and Kings of Denmark, and one of the dynasties of Sweden are descended, and is also notable for being the first book printed in Oldenburg. The chronicle was compiled by Hamelmann at the suggestion of the ruling counts, and following his death in 1595, was seen through the press by Anton Hering, who altered some passages, and Hermann Neuwald, who contributed the continuation from 1595 to 1599. The illustrations include half and three-quarter-page engraved portraits of the Counts and Countesses of Oldenburg with their arms, woodcuts and engravings of arms, coins and seals, a full-page engraving of the renowned drinking horn of Oldenburg, a fine double-page engraved birds-eye view of the town of Oldenburg as well as a full-page woodcut view, and a number of large woodcut battle scenes, among them an early woodcut view of Copenhagen.

        THE PRINCIPAL NAVIGATIONS, VOIAGES, TRAFFIQUES AND DISCOVERIES OF THE ENGLISH NATION, MADE BY SEA OR OVER- LAND, TO THE REMOTE AND FARTHEST DISTANT QUARTERS OF THE EARTH, AT ANY TIME WITHIN THE COMPASSE OF THESE 1500 YEERES

      London: George Bishop, Ralph Newberie and Robert Barker, 1599-1600.. Three volumes bound in two. [24],620;[16],312,204;[16],868pp. Folio. Eighteenth-century calf, rebacked, original spines neatly laid down. Some slight edgewear. Two older bookplates on each front pastedown. Two unobtrusive early ownership signatures to the titlepage of volume one. Very good. The second edition, greatly expanded from the single- volume original version of Hakluyt's voyages, with the 1599 titlepage, and with the suppressed leaves relating the voyage to Cadiz from the 1720 reprint. Titlepage of volume two reads "Hackluyt" and "1599" with line 7 reading "these 1600.yeres." This second edition is an entirely different book from the initial 1589 compilation, more than doubling it in content. "This [second edition] was indeed Hakluyt's monumental masterpiece...Much that was new and important was included: the travels of Newbery and Fitch, Lancaster's first voyage, the new achievements in the Spanish Main, and particularly Ralegh's tropical adventures...The book must always remain a great work of history, and a great sourcebook of geography, while the accounts themselves constitute a body of narrative literature which is of the highest value in understanding the spirit of the tendencies of the Tudor age" - Penrose. "It is difficult to overrate the importance and value of this extraordinary collection of voyages" - Sabin. "...An invaluable treasure of nautical information which has affixed to Hakluyt's name a brilliancy of reputation which time can never efface or obscure" - Church. Hakluyt's collection will always be the primary source for the history of early British exploration, as well as one of the gems of Elizabethan letters. Hakluyt took such patriotic pride in his countrymen's exploits in the fields of travel and adventure that he devoted his life to preserving the records of all British voyages, and to advancing further means for the promotion of wealth and commerce for the nation. "Hakluyt was a vigorous propagandist and empire-builder; his purpose was to further British expansion overseas. He saw Britain's greatest opportunity in the colonization of America, which he advocated chiefly for economic reasons, but also to spread Protestantism, and to oust Spain" - Hill. The third volume is devoted almost entirely to the Americas, the South Seas and various circumnavigations of the world. It includes the accounts of Niza, Coronado, Ruiz and Espejo relating to New Mexico; Ulloa, Drake and others concerning California; and Raleigh's account of Guiana. Volume I of this set contains the circa 1720 reprint of the rare "Voyage to Cadiz" (pp.607- 620), often lacking due to its suppression by order of Queen Elizabeth after the disgrace of the Earl of Essex; and with the second state of the volume 1 titlepage. The reason for the existence of several states of these "Cadiz" leaves was the fall from royal favor of the Earl of Essex, who returned to England from Ireland without leave in 1599. The original titlepage, dated 1598, had made mention of Essex's "famous victorie atchieued at the citie of Cadiz," and so it was quickly replaced with the present version (dated 1599), which makes no mention of Cadiz. Normally, the seven Cadiz leaves were simply removed from the end of the first volume. As usual, this set does not contain the world map, which is almost always missing and was only actually issued with a handful of copies. Church was able to trace just thirteen copies of the map, a figure that Quinn in his census for THE HAKLUYT HANDBOOK could only increase to nineteen, out of the total of 240 copies of the book that have been located, most of them held by institutions. Quinn remarks that even allowing for the ravages of time, this "survival rate is sufficiently low to raise the possibility that not all copies were equipped with the map, either because it was made available after many sets had been sold (which would mean that its date might be later than 1599), or because it was an optional extra supplied at additional cost." The greatest assemblage of travel accounts and navigations to all parts of the world collected up to its time, and a primary source for early New World exploration. This volume contains 243 narratives of voyages and travels in the New World, consisting of some one million seven hundred thousand words. GROLIER ENGLISH 100, 14.

        METROLOGIA DE JUAN DE MARIANA (1599)

      1599 - Materia: Libro antiguo de Pesos y medidas. Metrologia Publicación: Toledo; Apud Thomam Gusmanium, 1599. Descripción: Primera edición. 8vo. mayor (200 x 140 mm.). 4 h., 192 p. tablas. Texto enmarcado. Port. con entalladura del escudo la Compañia de Jesús. Texto en latín. Bellas capitulares grabadas en madera. Estado de conservación: Muy buen estado. Limpio y muy cuidado. Pergamino de la época. / Materia: Pesos y Medidas. Notas: Las obras de Juan de Mariana (1536-1624) fueron muy polémicas en su momento, sus libros públicamente quemados y el autor encarcelado en 1610 hasta su muerte 14 años despúes,además de ser incluidos en el índice de prohibidos por la Inquisición. Por tanto son obras de gran valor por la escasez de ejemplares que sobrevivieron, así como por la calidad de sus escritos. Ponderibus et Mensuris del padre Mariana es una obra de especial importancia por su amplia erudición histórica y que serviría de referencia a otras posteriores para el estudio de la Metrología. Otros datos: La diversidad de los pesos y medidas y el interés de los monarcas para que se tendiese a su unificación justifica el surgimiento de un buen número de tratados cuyo objetivo es el estudio y fórmulas de conversión de las distintas unidades de medida. A esta labor contribuye el humanista Nebrija con las Repetitiones que en los años 1560-1562 dedica a los pesos y medidas en las que declara la necesidad de establecer una relación bien determinada entre las unidades y una relación entre unidades de peso y de volumen. En el presente tratado De ponderibus et mensuris, ejemplo de aplicación practica de la matemática, se estudian los pesos y medidas griegos, romanos y hebreos. En las últimas paginas se ofrece una tabla práctica que permite establecer las equivalencias entre los pesos y medidas antiguos con respecto a los que eran usados en Toledo. Bibliografia: C.

"seven and twen-/ty provinces" in Esther I, 1). "Geneva" Bibles dated 1599 were actually printed in Amsterdam and Dort during the early 1600&#39;s for English people who wanted a Puritan alternative to the King James Bible.

Edition originale posthume de l&#146;&#156;uvre principale de Paolo Paruta, publiée un an après sa mort, prolongement des recherches entreprises par Machiavel. En théoricien de la raison d&#146;Etat, l'auteur étudie les causes de la grandeur et de la décadence de l&#146;Empire romain qu&#146;il compare à la république vénitienne, pour conclure en faveur de cette dernière. Si les institutions politiques varient inévitablement selon le lieu, les circonstances et les moeurs, la personnalité du souverain et sa « virtù » doivent constituer un exemple absolu pour ses administrés. L&#146;ouvrage est cité comme l&#146;une des sources de Montesquieu. A la suite, sous pagination séparée: un 'Soliloquio', intéressante méditation de l&#146;auteur sur son propre parcours et sa vie passée, sans doute inspirée par Saint Augustin. Homme d&#146;État et historien vénitien, Paolo Paruta fut historiographe de Venise, sénateur, gouverneur de Brescia, ambassadeur et procurateur de Saint-Marc. (Adams, P.363. Brunet, IV, 392.

Anno Dom. 1600. Volume 1 has the Voyage to Cadiz: pp. 607-620. This is a ca. 1720 reprint (This is comparable to the copy in the H. Kraus' Drake Collection; and see STC: Short Title Catalogue, second edition; p. 553; #3). The average page size is: 7 1/4 inches x 11 3/8 in. Woodcut initials; without the map, which is lacking in most copies. Bound in full old calf with five raised bands on the spines, and red leather title labels and black leather volume number labels in the second and third compartments, with gilt titles: HAKLUYT'S VOYAGES; the volume number labels, each show two, gilt leaf forms, the other compartments have gilt borders, and small diamond and star forms, with decorated gilt borders around the cover margins, decorated gilt on the cover edges; sprinkled edges; red marbled endpapers. These 18th century calf bindings show some wear to the spine ends, cover corners, with cracking to the front hinges on volumes one and three. The set is preserved in a brown, textured cloth-covered slipcase with a black cloth pull to help remove the volumes. This is a set with no restorations to the bindings, title-pages, or other leaves; there is no evidence of any paper or marginal repairs. There is an early ink notation that the "Voyage to Cadiz" is present, this is at the end of volume one. The title-pages each bear an embossed institutional stamp, and with the institutional sold stamp in the lower margins of the final pages. The title-pages edges show some wear, but do not show any paper repairs, or re-mounting. The first volume shows three bookplates on the front paste-down: Thomas Dampier (1748-1812), who was Bishop of Ely, and book collector, and a smaller one with the initials: D.D., and motto: Essayez with a closed belt design (Duke of Devonshire), and an institutional bookplate. Volumes 2 & 3 show the Devonshire & institutional bookplates. This first volume shows a partially obscured ink inscription by an earlier owner: Arthurus Lovett his booke 1647, on p. *2 and a Latin inscription at the end of the text of volume two: Peregrinius ut apes non ut arachnae. R Ingud (?). The title-page in volume one, shows some inked initials: HP, in the upper margin, and other small inked initials and marks, penciled numbers on the reverse of the title-pages. Volume Three shows some light pencil underlining to some of the texts, a stain to the lower margin of pp. 166-167, slight worming to lower margins of pp. 697-789. The pages show very little of the typical cropping. Hakluyt's Voyages is among the most famous group of English travels and voyages, and he was the inspiration for The Hakluyt Society, founded in 1846. "It is difficult to overate the importance and value of this extraordinary collection of voyages. Mr. Bancroft characterizes "Richard Hakluyt as the enlightened friend and able documentary historian of these commercial enterprizes, a man whose fame should be vindicated and asserted in the land which he helped to colonize," while Oldys, in his British Library, devotes fifty pages to an analysis of his works, and remarks that his collection "redounds as much to the glory of the English nation as any book that ever was published," and Mr. Dibdin is in an ecstasy of delight in his famous passage, beginning "All hail to thee, Richard Hakluyt,"[in The Library Companion, 1824]; -From Sabin's Dictionary.

        La Pompa Funerale fatta in Napoli nell¿Esquie del Catholico Re Filippo II di Austria.

      Stigliola, Naples 1599 - 4to., (4) ff., 147 pp., 1 large folding plate [70 x 24 cm] signed by Domenico Fontana, backed on linen. Woodcut blasón on title-page. Bound in modern marbled paper over boards. Some toning, and minor discoloration to join of plates, but generally good. Very rare first edition of the funeral exequies held in Naples for Philip II of Spain, containing a large folding engraving of the baroque mausoleum designed for the occasion by Domenico Fontana, who with della Porta had completed St. Peter¿s Cathedral after Michelangelo¿s death. The engraving depicts both the façade and floor-plan of the mausoleum: a hexagonal tabernacle of Corinthian columns surrounding a central bier, with emblems painted on the base, entablature and modillions, and a dome that bears a striking resemblance to St. Peter¿s cupola, which Fontana had completed less than a decade before. Unlike contemporary catafalques, which were usually built from wood and painted with trompe l¿oeil ¿sculpture¿, Fontana¿s mausoleum was more than an occasional piece: Caputi states clearly that while some of its elements were finte di marmo (faux marble), others were of true colored marble or marmo gentile. Prior to discussing the monument¿s lavish ornamentation, the author also treats the proportional design of its arches, dome, pilasters, columns etc. The presence of a floor-plan, and Fontana¿s inclusion of functional ornament such as the cupola lantern (adapted from his design for St. Peter¿s), indicate that the present monument was also a work of some architectural ambition. The plan is sometimes found in copies of Fontana¿s 1604 second edition of the Obelisco, but is not found invariably; the text in the present work relating to the occasion is not reprinted.

        A Treatise Concerning Enthusiasme, As it is an Effect of Nature: But is Mistaken by Many for either Divine Inspiration, or Diabolical Possession

      Printed by R. D. and are to be sold by Tho. Johnson. First edition.. Bound a little tightly in spots, but text completely legible; a few running heads trimmed a bit; paper a little browned; very good copy.. Wing C-812; NCBEL I, 2333. 8vo, modern brown half calf, brown cloth sides, black leather labels, gilt rules and lettering. A treatise by the adopted Englishman, scholar and divine, Meric Florence Estienne Casaubon (1599-1671) on enthusiasm in its traditional sense - a ?possession by a god, supernatural inspiration, prophetic or poetic frenzy; an occasion or manifestation of these? (OED). The text is divided into six chapters that deal with enthusiasm as it manifest itself in general, in divinity, philosophy, rhetoric, poetry and precatory, and refers repeatedly to ancient and scholarly works of philosophy, theology, medicine, poetry and rhetoric. In the chapter on poetics, Casaubon writes about the important influence of wine on poets and poetry: ?But is wine nothing towards the making of a Poet? Not toward the making, as to the faculty it self: but toward the making of a Poem, I think it may conduce not a little . . . ? Casaubon concludes that it may be possible to write a good poem by just drinking water, but not likely. This was the most widely read book of the many Casaubon wrote. Interesting contemporary ownership annotations on the blanks, title-page and verso of the title-page. One William Marriott has written out the titles of other works by Casaubon in Latin and English on the front blank and verso of the title; a Wm. Griffith, M.A., has written in the upper margin of the title-page that he bought this book in Cambridge in 1693 and notes its cost; and on the rear blank are annotations about Casaubon's classical references, etc.

        MILICIA Y DESCRIPCION DE LAS INDIAS.

      Madrid: En casa de Pedro Madrigal, 1599. - [15],186,[21] leaves, lacking portrait facing p.1 and final leaf with printing ornament. Small quarto. Early mottled calf, spine gilt, leather label. Minor wear to hinges and corners. Some soiling and wear on lower corners of last few index pages. Earlier library ink stamps. Very good. One of the most important Spanish works on the Indies and New World military organization in the 16th century. It is a tactical manual by a Spanish veteran of the colonial South American frontier and the brutal wars against rebellious native Americans, as well as a rich source of ethnographic and military detail. "The first manual of guerilla warfare ever published.he advocated for the Americas the creation of commando groups to carry out search-and-destroy missions deep within enemy territory for up to two years at a time" - Parker. This work served as both a guide to aid new arrivals in conquest, as well as a sometimes testy address to King Phillip II detailing Vargas Machuca's many services to the Crown, whom he felt never recognized him adequately for his service. The text is divided into four books, followed by a description of the Indies. The parts cover the following subjects: the qualities needed to lead, the preparation of soldiers and necessary materials, the duty of the soldier, and the settling of the land after conquest. It includes significant chapters on military medicine and natural history, though the real significance lies in the fact that "scattered throughout MILICIA INDIANA are unwitting fragments of indigenous and rural Spanish colonial history. Perhaps the main gap that this book helps to fill, if only partially, is the story of early and unconquered 'backcountry' New Granada" - Lane. Bernardo Vargas Machuca (ca.1555-1622) was a Spanish soldier, born in Simancas. He took part in several campaigns in Old Granada and Italy before setting off for the Caribbean in 1578 to help chase down the famed pirate, Francis Drake. His first services in the New World are obscure, until he arrived in New Granada, present-day Colombia, in 1585, one of many re-conquistadors still hoping to find the golden city of El Dorado. While settled in New Granada he participated in many campaigns against rebellious natives, becoming known for his ruthless and quick- striking tactics, explained in this text. These included campaigns in present-day Peru and Bolivia, and Colombia. In 1595 he returned to Spain, hoping to capitalize on his service to obtain promotion. Despite his best efforts, including the publication of this book, Vargas Machuca was unable to secure an encomienda or any other titles or appointments from King Phillip II. What positions he did manage to secure were in out- of-the-way locations relatively ignored by the Crown: one as paymaster of the three forts of Portobelo in Panama and later as governor of Margarita Island in the Caribbean. Both appointments were short- lived and ill-starred, and in the end, Vargas Machuca, both broke and indignant, made his way to court once again to seek another appointment. In keeping with his ill-luck, he died suddenly in Madrid of an unknown illness, shortly after being appointed governor of Antioquia, one of New Granada's declining gold districts. The MILICIA INDIANA is thus a manual of Indian warfare, an appeal for promotion based on services, and a picture of the colonial New World at a time far less documented than the original conquest. The multiple bankruptcies of the Spanish Crown and the decline of bullion production from the Americas was leading the New World empire into a long, slow decline. It is this period on entropy, balanced by violent frontier conflict, that Vargas Machuca documents. The book is also a proposal: the Indian uprisings in colonial Chile, long a thorn in the side of the Spanish, had broken out again, and he hoped to be appointed governor- general there, to suppress the rebellion with the tactics described in the book. He did not get the appointment. Besides this book Varg

They were all based on two textbooks of Spanish by Richard Percyvall, entitled Bibliotheca Hispanica (1591), the lexicon of which Minsheu considerably augmented. He refers to hostility towards his work in certain quarters, but ensured the grant of a licence to print by applying successfully to the archbishop of Canterbury. The printers set to work, so hurriedly that Minsheu, who had retired to the country &#145;upon necessitie&#146; (Dictionarie), was given no opportunity to read the proofs; consequently he promised his readers to publish a corrected and augmented version. He records that he spent some time in Cambridge, where he both began and completed the revised Spanish dictionary; this was finally published in 1617 as Vocabularium Hispanicolatinum et Anglicum, an appendix to his magnum opus, Ductor in linguas: the Guide into Tongues&#146; (Vivian Salmon in ODNB).The &#145;vncouth phrases&#146; are taken from Monte Mayor (Antwerp 1580), Celestina (Antwerp 1595), &c, and there is an abundance of proverbs. The Dialogues deal with most sorts of practical matters: getting out of bed (i.e. ordering the servants about to get you dressed), dealing in jewels, fine dining (as it were), the art of conversation, the speech of servants, dealings on the Exchange, and warfare.There are a number of ownership inscriptions. The oldest, more or less contemporary with the book, is at the foot of the title-page, but unfortunately inked over: this also obscures the publication date. Also on the title-page is an early seventeenth-century inscription: Ja. Finlay. On the verso of the title-page are the signatures of one Archibald Whytehead, who also writes various spellings of his Christian name. Below this the bold signature of Thomas Michel, with a Latin tag and the date 1683. At the end of the Dictionarie are scribbles in the name of a S[eño]r Guillermo Miguel, but these seem more like Michel&#146;s trials with Spanish titles, rather than the work of an actual Spaniard; Michel has also inscribed the date 1683 in the margin of one page. The annotations are throughout the book, more numerous in the first quarter, but there is no question that the annotator went through the entire book with the meticulous attention of a scholar. He makes corrections and additions and comments. The hand is probably that of the James Finlay whose signature appears on the title-page, though there is another hand, less prolific and not as tidy, probably Thomas Michel. The name Finlay points to a Scottish provenance, a supposition supported by the Archibald. (STC (2nd ed.), 19620 & 19622; ESTC S115747 & S115752; Alston XII 171 & 140; not in CCPB)

        Primera y Segunda parte de las guerras de Malta, y toma de Rodas.

      En la imprenta del Lic. Varez de Castro,, Madrid: 1599 - 8 hojas, 296 folios, 2 hojas de tabla (falta el folio 64 y la última hoja de tabla). Pasta española del siglo xvii, cortes tintados. Alguna suciedad difusa en el margen superior, especialmente evidente en las primeras hojas. Palau 300189. Lorenzo Rubio Gonzalez, "Las guerras de Malta" de Diego de Santisteban Osorio. Escrita por el joven leonés Diego Santisteban, narra la invasión por parte de las fuerzas otomanas al mando de Pialí Bajá de la isla de Malta, sorprendiendo al gran maestre de los caballeros de la Orden, Juan de la Valette. Recluido dentro de las fortalezas, resistió con un ejército muy inferior en número los ataques de los turcos hasta que la llegada de los refuerzos del virrey de Sicília García de Toledo hizo desistir a los atacantes del empeño y retirarse.Solimán, que había iniciado el sultanato conquistando Rodas en 1522, y con esta victoria y la de Belgrado tuvo en sus manos las llaves del Danubio y del Mediterráneo oriental, ahora, poco antes de morir (1566), veía apagarse su estrella y comenzar a brillar la de los cristianos, que alcanzó su máximo esplendor con la victoria de Lepanto en 1571. En efecto, el predominio de la cristiandad y de la Corona española sobre el Mediterráneo, por el que había luchado con variada fortuna el emperador Carlos, comenzó con la victoria material y moral que suponía haber rechazado la ofensiva turca contra Malta.La obra está dividida en 25 cantos y compuesta en 1747 octavas reales. En ella se entremezlan la descripción de los combates en el tono épico de las batallas con historias amorosas tanto de cristianos como turcos así como episodios fabulosos.

Vidone, having studied at Pavia and Perugia came to Rome during the pontificate of Pope Clement VIII (1592-1605). His rise, from relatively lowly status, up the Church administrative hierarchy was rapid, due to his considerable talent and skill and he became &#147;Abbreviatore di parco maggiore&#148; in 1604, then Chamberlain of honor to the Pope, was made Vice-legate of the Marche in 1606, Referendary of the Tribunals of the Apostolic Signature of Justice and of Grace, and Cleric of the Apostolic Chamber in 1609. He was later made Governor of the Civitavecchia in 1612, a post which he held until 1623, then President of Romagna, from 1623 to 1625. His success earned him the important post of Treasurer general of the Apostolic Chamber, and Commissary general of the papal army in 1625, effectively shouldering the burden of running the entire administration of the Papal domains. Created cardinal in August 30, 1627 he received the red hat and the title of Ss. Quattro Coronatti, &#145;pro illa vice&#146; deaconry on October 6, 1627. His relatively short period as a cardinal allows us to date this binding quite precisely to between 1627 and 1632, most probably at Rome. The sumptuous and fine workmanship is in excellent condition, the gilding still bright and fresh which hardly any fading or rubbing, and it is easy to imagine such a richly worked binding in the hands of a Cardinal. Vitignano dedicates the work to Philip III of Spain with a short essay and poem and includes another dedication by Giovanni Baptista de la Porta. He attempts to trace the history of the House of Austria back to the Roman empire using inscriptions found on ancient monuments in Rome and Naples. Beautiful and very well preserved.

      per Filippo Giunti,, in Vinezia, 1599 - In-8° (210x152mm), pp. (32), 523 [i.e. 543], (40) d'indice bicolonne, legatura coeva p. pergamena flessibile con titolo calligrafato in antico al dorso. Marca con giglio giuntino al frontespizio. Fregi tipografici istoriati incisi su legno. Estesi indici preliminari e finali. Una macchia antica di inchiostro al margine inferiore del piatto anteriore. Antica scritta con motto latino al risguardo. Un restauro antico al margine inferiore del frontespizio; un alone al frontespizio. Aloni e bruniture sparse di lieve entità. Buon esemplare nel complesso. Reimpresione giuntina di significativo documento del tacitismo rinascimentale, da molti giudicato il capolavoro del poligrafo leccese."Nei centoquarantatré Discorsi di cui consta la sua trattazione, egli ricava dagli Annali e dalle Istorie dello scrittore latino altrettanti spunti per dissertare su numerose, spicciole questioni politiche, militari, economiche. L'A. si inserisce, quindi, di pieno diritto in quella tendenza dottrinale cui è stato dato il nome di "tacitismo", e della quale, anzi, egli è uno degli esponenti primi e più autorevoli, nonché più significativi, per lo meno a motivo della sua presa di posizione. In questo senso: mentre il Botero, con la sua Ragion di Stato (1589), aveva denunziato il tacitismo quale maschera del machiavellismo, l'A., scrivendo dopo di lui, quasi deliberatamente s'industria di sfruttare i passi di Tacito ai fini di un suo permanente atteggiamento antimachiavellico. nella storia dell'antimachiavellismo del Cinquecento, l'A. si aggiudica un posto irrefutabile, ma anche tutto a sé: giacché sarà necessario convenire che, a differenza di certo antimachiavellismo dozzinale e superficiale, comune ai più, la polemica di lui, se pur programmatica, si mantiene abitualmente su un corretto piano di critica erudita, pacata e non volgare." (Rodolfo De Mattei in D.B.I., III). L'Ammirato (Lecce, 1531-Firenze, 1601) fu commediografo, scrittore di oratoria, storiografo di Cosimo de'Medici ("Istorie fiorentine"), segretario di Alessandro Contarini a Venezia (qui fu costretto ad abbandonare precipitosamente la città in seguito alla scoperta della sua relazione d'amore con una Contarini), amico dell'Aretino, poeta petrarchista, fondatore dell'Accademia dei Trasformati, onorato da immensa fama a suo tempo.

Onosander (Onesandros), a pedantic Greek philosopher of the first century A.D., was the chief authority for the military writings of several Byzantine emperors. His work in 42 chapters, entitled 'The General' explains the broad principles of command, the formation of an army, the preparation for battle, and other aspects of warfare from an ethical standpoint. 'The earliest military treatise wherein so much stress is laid upon the commander's duties, the morale of the troops, the ethical side of warfare' (Sarton). The text became very popular during the Renaissance and was translated into Latin (1494), German (1532), French and Italian (1546), and English (1563). The English translation (from Cotta's Italian version by Peter Whitehorne - see Cockle 14) was one of the earliest books on the subject published in Elizabethan England.

        Orationes und Predigten über Ulrich III., Herzog zu Mecklenburg. Orationes anläßlich einer Universitäts- bzw. Stadtvisitation zu Rostock.

      Rostock, Durch Christoff Reusner, 1599 - 1603 (1622).. Oktav. 11 Teile in einem modernen Halbpergamentband. Seltene Materialsammlung zum Mecklenburgischen Herzog Ulrich III.; Seltene Materialsammlung zum Mecklenburgischen Herzog Ulrich III.. ULRICH III., Herzog zu Mecklenburg (1527 -1603), Sohn von Herzog Albrecht dem Schönen und seiner Gattin Anna zu Brandenburg geboren, verlebte Kindheit und Jugend am Hofe zu München, studierte in den Jahren 1541 bis 1544 an der Universität zu Ingolstadt. Der Tod des Vaters hinterließ den fünf Brüdern ein hoch verschuldetes Land Mecklenburg. Es kam zu unterschiedlichen Ansprüchen, einseitigen Gebietsverteilungen und teilweise zum offenen Bruch unter den Brüdern. ULRICH wurde 1550 Bischof von Schwerin, schließlich wurde im Jahre 1556 die Gebietsaufteilung friedlich beigelegt, waren es jetzt auch nur noch zwei Brüder: ULRICH und sein älterer Bruder Johann Albrecht. Letzterer erhielt den Schwerinschen Teil, während Ulrich neben seinem Bistum den Güstrowschen Teil zugesprochen bekam. Johann Albrecht war die nach außen stärker wirkende Gestalt und verhalf dem Namen Mecklenburg im Reich und darüber hinaus zu Ansehen, währendes ULRICH die Schuldenlast des Herzogtum abbaute. Beide hatten jedoch enorme Schwierigkeiten mit der nach Unabhängigkeit strebenden Stadt ROSTOCK. Eine Aussöhnung der Brüder gelang jedoch nur auf dem Totenbett von Johann Albrecht. Nun übernahm ULRICH III. die Alleinherrschaft über Mecklenburg. Seine Tätigkeit auf kirchlichem Gebiet hatte ihren Höhepunkt in der Anerkennung der Konkordienformel im Jahre 1577 und dem Erlass der von David Chyträus revidierten Kirchenordnung, die noch am Tage von Ulrichs Ableben verkündet worden ist. Auf juristischem Gebiet wollte ULRICH eine Mecklenburgische Land- und Lehensordnung errichten, sie kam aber über den Entwurf nicht hinaus. Die SCHRIFTEN im einzelnen: 1.

      Frankfurt & Marburg, In Bibliopolio Zachariae Palthenii & Typis Pasuli Egenolphi, ACad. TYpogr., 1599.. Oktav. (I:) Titelblatt mit Druckersignet, (14), 648 S.; (II:) Titelblatt mit Druckersignet, 192 gezählte Blätter. Zwei Teile in einem sehr gut erhaltenen zeitgenössischen Pergamentband.. Angebundener Titel: b. Hermann VULTEJUS, disceptationes juris scholasticae, Marburg 1600. Hermann Vultejus (1555 - 1634) studierte zunächst an der Universität Heidelberg und zwar vor allem deshalb, weil er unter anderem bei dem berühmten Franzosen Hugo Donellus Vorlesungen hören wollte. Später schloss er seine Studien an der Universität zu Marburg ab. Im Jahre 1576 ging Vultejus nach Genf, wo er sich unter anderem mit Franciscus Hotomanus anfreundete. In Genf hielt Vultejus einige Privatvorlesungen ab, lernte die Methode und Dialektik des Petrus Ramus kennen, zog im Sommer 1577 nach Italien weiter und verweilte vom Oktober 1577 bis Ende Januar 1578 an der venezianischen Universität zu Padua, wo er insbesondere die Vorlesungen von Jacobus Menochius besuchte. Den Abschluss seiner langen peregrinatio academica bildet seine Promotion in Basel, die er am 2. Februar 1580 unter Basilius Amerbach abgelegt hat. Im Jahre 1580 nimmt Vultejus seine Vorlesung in Marburg auf, im Dezember 1581 wird er Professor der Institutionen. Seinen ersten Vorlesungszyklus zu den Institutionen begann Vultejus am 10. Januar 1582 und beendete diesen am 18. März 1585. 1582: Beisitzer am Hofgericht 1591: als Nachfolger von Regner Sixtinus Professor primarius 1605: Vizekanzler der Universität 1611: Beisitzer am Konsistorium 1627: Emeritus 1634: gestorben am 31. Juli zu Marburg An Vultejus wird gerühmt, daß seine Publikationen mit außerordentlich großer Gewissenhaftigkeit erarbeitet und ediert sind. In Marburg war ein Schwerpunkt des Rechtsstudiums die Integration der rechtspraktischen Ausbildung. Ausgangspunkt für die erste Untersuchung ist die einschlägige Codexstelle: "omnis difficilis & perplexus". Die zweite Abhandlung beinhaltet ausgesuchte Stelle aus den Digesten, die Vultejus im Laufe der Jahre in seinen akademischen Vorlesungen vorgetragen und erötert hat, aber auch Eröterungen über Instrumentarien innerhalb des Rechtsunterrichts, etwa das Zitieren: "Citare quid sit".

      Frankfurt: Johann Feyerabend, 1599. Frankfurt: Johann Feyerabend, 1599. Renaissance Woodcut Master Ammon, Jost (1539-1591). Kunstbuchlin, darinnen neben Furbildung vieler Geistlicher unnd Weltlicher Hohes und Niderstands Personen . . . allerhandt kunstreiche Stuck unnd Figuren . . . Alles auff das zierlichst und k?lichst gerissen. Frankfurt: Johann Feyerabend, 1599. First complete edition. Small 4to (193 x 143 mm). Title printed in red and black, 293 full page woodcuts. Old stamp removed from title and patched on recto and verso, lacking final blank. Old vellum gilt, gilt edges (rebacked). Adams A 969; Brunet I, 234; Fairfax Murray German 36. Wood engravings after Jost Amman by various engravers. The first woodcut is signed by Amman "IA," but also by the engraver "MF." This mark plus those of "L.F.," "C.S.," and "G.H." are also found in the volumes. First complete edition of this model book for painters, designers, copyists and other craftsmen. The designs comprise mythological and classical compositions, as well as modern subjects with female figures, heads of bishops and Turks, military and other costume of the period, horses, combats, etc. Excellent as a resource for the study of dress and manners, as well as the study of weapons and horses. Jost Ammon, Swiss-German printmaker, painter, draughtsman, designer of woodcuts, and etcher. Also known as Jos, Jobst, or Joss Amman. Died in Nuremberg in 1591. The son of a notable professor, the erudite Jost Amman chose printmaking over scholarship, but always maintained contacts in humanist circles. He may have apprenticed in Basel or Zurich and probably also studied in Paris and Lyon. In 1561, Amman settled in Nuremberg, where he worked with Virgil Solis. After Solis's death in 1562, Amman began a lifelong partnership with Solis's publisher Sigmund Feierabend, becoming the chief designer of publications, adapting himself to every task, and changing his style according to his employer's demands. If Amman is not recognized as an equal to Durer and Holbein, it is because he did too much work in the service of others. Although economic concerns prevented Amman from fully developing his genius, he is nevertheless considered one of the most important and productive illustrators and woodcutters of his time. Amman's woodcuts can be recognized by the elegant, mannered slenderness of the figures. The artist also composed technical and theoretical writings on art. Amman's drawing is "correct and spirited, and his delineation of the details of costume, &c., is minute and accurate" (Snell). The Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th edition notes that Amman "revealed himself as a brilliant and witty recorder of contemporary events." Amman's prints depict the costumes of men of all ranks, the women of Europe and their dress, and representations of hunting and fowling with numerous dynamic pictures of horses. According to William Andrew Chatto, the prints in Kunstbuchlin "afford the best specimens of his talents as a designer on wood [and] are those illustrative of the costume of the period, first published between 1580-1585 by S. Feyerabend at Frankfort." Chatto also notes that this 1599 edition was published for the "especial benefit of painters and amateurs" (492). The works of Jost Amman have proved a mine for succeeding artists; his figures were frequently copied by wood engravers in France, Italy, and Flanders; and even some modern English paintings contain evidence of the artist having borrowed more than a hint of the figures of Amman. Some of his very best designs are to be found among his equestrian subjects. His men generally have a good "seat" and his ladies seem to manage their heavy long-tailed steeds with great ease and grace (492). Benezit's Dictionnaire (not prone to heaping praise on its entries) called Amman one of the great artists in the spirit of Durer, Aldegrever and Beham. Amman is notable for his artistic expression through his engravings, which were produced with "vitraux remarquables." He was as facile with a copper plate as with a woodblock, and his beautiful designs with a pen as well as his prints should be studied by amateurs (I, 147).
