        Discorsi politici (.), Nei quali si considerano diversi fatti illustri, e memorabili di Principi, e di Republiche Antiche, e Moderne. Divisi in due libri. Aggiontovi nel fine un suo Soliloquio, nelquale l'Auttore fa un breve essame di tutto il corso della sua vita (.).

      - Venetia, Domenico Nicolini, 1599. 2 parties en un fort volume in-4, pleine basane marbrée (dos refait, plats d'origine conservés), (22) f. dont titre, 636 p., (1) f. de colophon et 21 p., (1) p. de colophon, impression en italique, lettrines historiées, bandeaux et culs de lampe, portrait de l'auteur en grande vignette de titre. Edition originale posthume de l’œuvre principale de Paolo Paruta, publiée un an après sa mort, prolongement des recherches entreprises par Machiavel. En théoricien de la raison d’Etat, l'auteur étudie les causes de la grandeur et de la décadence de l’Empire romain qu’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’ouvrage est cité comme l’une des sources de Montesquieu. A la suite, sous pagination séparée: un 'Soliloquio', intéressante méditation de l’auteur sur son propre parcours et sa vie passée, sans doute inspirée par Saint Augustin. Homme d’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. Graesse, V, 144). Quelques petits soulign. anciennes au crayon en marge. Très bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition]

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 ‘upon necessitie’ (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’ (Vivian Salmon in ODNB).The ‘vncouth phrases’ 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’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.

      Thomam Gusmanium, Toledo 1599 - Portada grabada - 3 h. - 192pp. letras capitales decoradas con xilografías. Texto enmarcado. Excelente ejemplar encuadernado en el siglo XVIII a media piel. Palau 151724. Colmeiro 265. Goldsmiths 290. = El P. Mariana hizo un esmerado trabajo de investigación económica y acertó a dar severas críticas al uso que el monarca hacía en la fluctuación de la moneda. Colmeiro dice: "Reprende con acerada crítica los vicios de los gobiernos contemporáneos, inclinados a la continua alteración de las monedas. Censura con vehemencia los abusos de los siglos pasados y muestra temores por los venideros. No es maravilla que el autor recogiese amargos frutos de escribir con tanto desenfado." 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. Es ejemplo de aplicación práctica de la matemática, se estudian los pesos y medidas griegos, romanos y hebreos. En las últimas páginas 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.

        Vera genealogia e discendenza della Serenissima et Inuittissima Prosapia D'Austria. Breuemente descritta da Cornelio Vitignano .

Woodcut arms of Austria on title, a larger version on verso, large woodcut grotesque initials and head and tail-pieces, typographical ornaments, woodcut printers device on verso of last. One quire lightly browned, very minor occasional spotting. A very good copy in magnificent contemporary Italian red morocco gilt, covers gilt ruled to a panel design, outer dentelle roll, second panel filled with charming gilt floral roll incorporating grotesque heads, central panel with the large gilt arms of Cardinal Vidone at centers, fine gilt floral tools to corners all filled with semé of small lozenge tools, spine with gilt ruled raised bands with stars gilt in compartments, remains of ties, tiny expert restoration to head and tail of spine and one corner, a.e.g. FINE ARMORIAL BINDING A superb example of a prestigious early seventeenth century Italian morocco binding belonging to Cardinal Vidone, on an interesting and appropriate work tracing the early genealogy of the House of Austria. 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 “Abbreviatore di parco maggiore” 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, ‘pro illa vice’ 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.

        Discorsi sopra Cornelio Tacito nuovamente posti in luce. Con due tavole, una de' Discorsi, e luoghi di Cornelio sopra i quali sono fondati: l'altra delle cose più Notabili. Alla Serenis. Madama Christiana di Loreno Gran Duchessa di Toscana.

      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.

Editio princeps of the original Greek text, published with an annotated Latin translation by Nicolas Rigault (Rigaltius 1577-1654), a distinguished French classical scholar, who succeeded Casabon as Royal librarian in Paris. 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.

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).

        De philtris, utrum animi hominum his commoueantur, nec ne.

      Hamburg, Möller, 1599.. (19 x 15 cm). 18 nn. Bll. Mit Holzschnittvignette auf Titel und einigen ornamentalen Initialen und Leisten. Moderner Pappband.. Einzige Ausgabe dieses seltenen Werkes über den Liebeszauber. - "Der Tractatus de philtris ist die älteste gedruckte Abhandlung, die sich speziell mit der Wirkung des Liebeszaubers auseinandersetzt, doch wurde er nur in einer Auflage gedruckt und von den Zeitgenossen anscheinend kaum zur Kenntnis genommen. Die (medizin-)historische Forschung (Urs Benno Birchler) hat die Schrift bislang übersehen. In seiner Schrift untersucht Bökel die Wirkung von Philtren (Liebestränken). Dieser bereits in der griechischen Antike geprägte Begriff umfaßte bis zum 18. Jahrhundert verschiedenartige, sowohl materielle als auch immaterielle Mittel, die nach verbreiteter Auffassung dazu geeignet waren, die leidenschaftliche Liebe eines Menschen zu einer bestimmten Person oder zu einem bestimmten Objekt zu erwecken.... Bökel vertritt den traditionellen aristotelisch-galenischen Standpunkt, der die Wirkungslosigkeit sämtlicher Philtren behauptet. Als erster Galeniker überhaupt stellt er die Einheit des Philterbegriffes explizit in Frage, indem er unter Bezug auf die Gesetze der aristotelischen Physik zwischen materiellen und immateriellen Philtren differenziert... Nach eingehender Analyse kommt er aber zu dem Schluß, daß beide Formen nicht geeignet sind, die Liebe zu einer bestimmten Person hervorzurufen... Obwohl Bökel generell die Wirkungslosigkeit sämtlicher Philtren betont, muß er erklären, warum die Zeitgenossen den Eindruck haben, daß auf die Einnahme eines Philtrums dennoch oft der intendierte Effekt folgt. Er führt dies auf den Beitrag des Teufels zurück, der die Menschen über die angebliche Wirkung der Philtren täusche und diesen unter Zuhilfenahme physiologischer Mechanismen, die jedoch von den verwendeten magischen Mitteln unabhängig seien, scheinbar eine Wirkung verleihe" (Kauertz, Claudia: Bökel, Johann. Aus: Lexikon zur Geschichte der Hexenverfolgung, hrsg. Gersmann, Moeller u. Schmidt). - Boeckel (1535-1605), Schüler von Melanchthon, war Stadtphysikus in Hamburg, Leibarzt der Herzöge von Braunschweig und erster Professor für Medizin an der neu gegründeten Universität Helmstädt. Bekannt wurde er durch die Beschreibung der Pestepidemie in Hamburg 1565. - Stellenweise leicht stockfleckig, sonst gut erhalten. - Hirsch-H. I, 590; VD16 B 6298; Kayser-Dehn 70
