        Antiqui Rhetores Latini. Rutilius Lupus, Aquila Romanus, Iulius Rufinianus, de figuris sententiarum & elocutionis .

      1599 - Materia: Autores latinos. Retorica. Libro antiguo. S. XVI. Publicación: Parisiis : Ex officina Plantiniana : apud Hadrianum Perier, 1599. Descripción fisica: [4], 382, [16] p ; 4º (21 cm.) Encuadernación pergamino de época con rotulo en el lomo. Conservación: Revisado completo, muy buen estado. Notas: La retórica es la disciplina transversal a distintos campos de conocimiento (ciencia de la literatura, ciencia política, publicidad, periodismo, ciencias de la educación, ciencias sociales, derecho, etc.) que se ocupa de estudiar y de sistematizar procedimientos y técnicas de utilización del lenguaje, puestos al servicio de una finalidad persuasiva o estética, añadida a su finalidad comunicativa. Históricamente, la retórica tiene su origen en la Grecia clásica, donde se entendía, en palabras de los tratadistas clásicos, como el ars bene dicendi, esto es, la técnica de expresarse de manera adecuada para lograr la persuasión del destinatario (etimológicamente, la palabra es un helenismo que proviene del griego ???????? [?????], «rhetorikè (téchne)»). La retórica se configura como un sistema de procesos y recursos que actúan en distintos niveles en la construcción de un discurso. Tales elementos están estrechamente relacionados entre sí y todos ellos repercuten en los distintos ámbitos discursivos. ESS 1 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Ilha e Cidade de Goa Metropolitana da India E Partes Orientais que esta en 15 Graos da Banda da Norte

      Amsterdam: Jan Huygen van Linschoten, 1599. Map. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 15.5 x 16.5". This bird's-eye plan depicts the Indian city of Goa, the capital of the 16th-century Portuguese trading empire, in a dynamic style that reflects the city's vibrant commerce. Ships of all sizes and from all parts of the East congregate in the harbor to participate in the lucrative spice trade, as well as bring other goods from the surrounding areas such as porcelain, silk, and velvet. Wonderful attention has been given to the detail of the city's plan, with decorative ciphers conveying the architectural splendor for which it was known. Small trees indicate the palm groves and gardens that surrounded the homes of the rich. Outside the city, rolling hills describe the surrounding landscape. A key surrounded by scrollwork and topped with a coat of arms provides explanatory information in Latin. The map appeared in Jan Huygen van Linschoten's Itineraro. It is in very good condition with some staining around original folds. Narrow margins as issues. Theodor de Bry (1528-1595) was a German engraver and book dealer. He produced illustrations of European and international cities which he both visited and imagined visiting, publishing them with maps and atlases by fellow engravers. After his death, his family compiled the images into two series, the Grand Votages and the Petit Voyages. This map of Goa is a beautiful example of his work.

      Breugelmans, Leiden Imprints, p. 16; STCN (2 copies); Typ. Batava 669; cf. Belg. Typ. 7952 (1st ed.); Doukas, Pierre Boaistuau, pp. 167-194; Machiels B-750 (1st ed.). The rare second Dutch edition of Boaistuau's celebrated and immensely popular Le théâtre du monde. Influenced by St Augustine's The City of God, the work analyses the distress and misfortunes of human life, using the theatre as a metaphor. Boaistuau understood the diseases, poverty, hunger and continuous warfare that plagued early 16th-century life as proof of God's wrath. He criticized the corruption and decadence of Man, and advocated a Stoic morality based on reason and Christian virtue. Included, as usual, is a translation of Boaistuau's Bref discours de l'excellence et dignité de l'homme, which was published simultaneously to complement the Théâtre, focussing on Man's virtues and abilities rather than his misery.With early owner's inscription on title-page. First 6 leaves with small restoration at the foot, some occasional minor stains. Bookblock nearly detached, lacking first flyleaf. Reasonable copy.

        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.

Third Edition. Hayward was imprisoned by Queen Elizabeth, 1599-1601, for publishing the present work, which he had dedicated to Essex. 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.

Le premier était paru en 1598, à l'adresse de Paris, et il est aussi rare : en fait, l'on voit surtout l'édition collective des pièces de cette affaire, composée de trois parties, et donnée en 1600. Le Dauphiné, comme l'on sait, jouissait d'un statut très particulier en raison de l'acte de transfert à la Couronne de France ; ici, le point défendu est l'exemption générale de la taille pour l'ensemble de la province.

      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.

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.

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
