        Della perfettione della vita politica di M. Paolo Paruta nobile vinetiano, cavaliere, & procuratore di San Marco : Libri tre ; a'quali vi sono state aggiunte le postille ne'margini, & ampliati gli indici.

      Appresso Domenico Nicolini 1599 - Quarto, 26 cm. [xlvi], 479 pages. Bound in 18th century armorial mottled calf, rebacked with later spine, red leather psine label. Book plate of the Earl of Roden. Minor soiling to title page, scattered spotting, Paruta was a historian and statesman of the Venetian Republic. His political instincts were influenced by Machiavelli, but distinct. Paruta's Della perfezione della vita politica" was written in a didactic and academic tone. He discusses the superiority of the active and contemplative life and how it contributes more to the welfare of the Republic. It was supposed, not without reason, to have been written to controvert the ideas contained in Bellarmine's "De officio principis christiani". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Bible, That is the Holy Scriptures Conteined in the Olde and Newe Testaments... [bound with] Book of Psalmes

      (1) London: Imprinted... by the Deputies of Christopher Barker; (2) [Likely London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1630s, 1599. 4to. (6), (110), 190, 127, 121, (11) ff; (10), 91 [misnumbered 93] pp, bound without the general engraved title and wanting 10 pages of prayers at the rear. 18th century panelled calf, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered red label, early 19th inscriptions to the blank verso of the final leaf of the Old Testament, occasional older marginalia elsewhere. Joints neatly repaired and the endpapers replaced, most likely in the 20th century, two adjacent leaves of Psalmes at the front with loss to the text, one leaf (Ee5) with loss of text to the lower corner, another (Fff5) with loss of text to the upper and lower edges plus roughly a dozen leaves at intervals with smaller losses occasionally with slight loss of text. Herbert, 253. An edition of the Bible that was republished repeatedly in the early decades of the 17th century, with subtle differences to each issue but without amendment to the imprint or date. This copy is bound with 110 pages of a contemporary Book of Common Prayer including the Psalms, textually complete but for title page making it impossible to identify the edition. The separate edition of the Psalmes bound in at the rear bears no imprint on its title page, but otherwise conforms to other 1630s editions of the work that we have seen.

Es kommen außerdem hinzu einige weitere kleine Werke desselben Autors, dessen Aufzählung auf der Rückseite dieses Blattes aufgeführt ist. Alldies nun erstmals veröffentlicht. Dem äußerst bekannten und ehrwürdigen Herrn, D. Julius, durch Gottes Einsicht Bischoff von Würzburg und Fürst des Westfrankenreichs, etc. Mit Erlaubnis der Obrigen. Köln, bei Anton Hierat, unter dem Einhorn, im Jahr 1599. Mit besonderer Befugnis und Privileg des Heiligen Kaisers, seiner Majestät.\" Die Erwähnung des Einhorns nach dem Namen des Verlegers ist eine Anspielung auf das Verlagssignet von Gymnich, dessen Geschäft Hierat kurz zuvor übernommen hatte. Das Signet auf dem Titelblatt ist allerdings nicht mehr vorhanden (sauber ausgeschnitten). Man kann aber davon ausgehen, dass es sich um dasselbe Signet handelt, das auch auf dem Titelblatt der Sermones von Palude erscheint (Bestellnummer: 31561), und das womöglich eine Anspielung auf das Emblem des Jesuitenordens ist. Das Titelblatt weist außerdem noch Einträge in alter Hand auf, sowie einen groberen Tintenstrich, der über das Loch des nicht vorhandenen Signets auch das nächste Blatt zum Teil erreicht. Die Widmung an den Bischoff von Würzburg wurde von dem venezianischem Typographen Giovanni Battista Ciotti verfasst. Die Aufzählung der kleineren Werke lautet wie folgt: \"Appendix ad libros de summo Pontifice, continens refutationem cuiusdam libelli Italici, cuius titulus est, Aviso piacevole dato alla bella Italia. Appendix ad Libros de Cultu imaginum complectens refutationem cuiusdam libelli editi Francforti, cuius titulus est, Synodus Parisiensis, de Imagin. De excemptione Clericorum, Liber Vnus. Iudicium de libro Concordie Lutheranorum, una cum breui eiusdem libelli Apologia, eiusdem Roberti Bellarmini\". Es handelt sich um weitere polemische Kleinschriften gegen Werke der Reformation oder Kommentare zur Gegenreformation. Das Buch beinhaltet einen Index von beiden Büchern mit der Kapitelangabe. Robert Bellarmin verfasste zahlreiche Werke gegen die Reform (apud haereticos…) sowie, unter anderen, einen Katechismus. Er war Mitglied des Jesuitenprdens und wurde zeitgleich mit der Veröffentlichung dieses Werkes zum Bischoff und Kardinal in Rom ernannt. Als Inquisitor leitete er die Prozesse gegen Giordano Bruno, der zum Scheiterhaufen verurteilt wurde, und gegen Galileo Galilei, der seine Theorien zurückzog. Vorderer Vorsatz leicht losgelöst. Mit Eintrag in alter Hand auf dem hinteren Vorsatz: \"Aue Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum.\" Am Rücken sind zwei Bünde zu erkennen. Der Einband weist noch die Ansätze von einfachen Schließen auf, eine Schließe ist nur zum Teil noch erhalten. Mit rot gefärbten Ganzschnitt. Siehe Foto. Versand D: 5,90 EUR

        Milicia y descripción de las Indias por el Capitan... dirigido al licen- ciado Paulo de Laguna Presidente del Consejo Real de las Indias

      First edition; excessively rare Americana. The Milicia is by all accounts a primary source book for the history of the colonization and pacification of South American Indians in the 16th century. It is the earliest guerrilla manual and amongst the first works on the military organization in South America, aimed to conquer and pacify the tribes opposing the Spanish settlements in the New World. Vargas Machuca´s efforts in Spanish America were focused in New Granada (Colombia), Peru and Chile; in Chile he presented a project to pacify the rebellious Araucanians, and resisted the Council for the Indies in their intention of de-populating the region. Vargas Machuca (1557 - 1622) was a Spanish military and colonial officer; he spent over two decades in South America, which allowed him the working knowledge necessary for the confection of his treatise. The work is a comprehensive manual of how to conduct warfare in the New World, with notes on the medicines and prevention of diseases for the military, a description of the "Indias Occidentales" dealing with the geography and hydrographical reality of the region, fauna and flora. Unfortunately, history would judge and criticize Vargas Machuca for his ruthless position towards the natives. "The first manual of guerrilla 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). The illustration comprises an armillary sphere on verso of ff. 180, and a portrait of Vargas Machuca holding a compass over a map of the Americas -often missing. As aforementioned, an excessively rare work, no copies have appeared at auction since 1967 -with one exception, an incomplete copy missing the portrait and colophon, in 2008. Included in the Coleccion de Libros Raros y curiosos que tratan de America. Maggs offered a copy in 1928 for 250 GBP. Provenance: bound for Don Luis de Benavides Carrillo de Toledo, Marques de Caracena (1608 - 1668); a Spanish military officer and nobleman, he rose to become Governor of Milan (1648 - 1656) and Governor of the Spanish Low Countries (1659 - 1664).

Woodcut IHS device on title-page, decorative initials and woodcut illustration of crucifix. 119, [1] pp. Collation: A-G^8 H^4. 8vo. The Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan. A rare work by the Portuguese Jesuit Luis Froes, addressed to the general of the order Claudio Acquaviva and relating the execution of 26 Christians in Japan on February 5, 1597. The so-called Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan - six Franciscan missionaries, seventeen Japanese neophytes and three Japanese Jesuits - were crucified in Nagasaki on the orders of Hideyoshi Toyotomi. The bodies were left hanging for months outside the busy harbor to serve as a warning to other converts and missionaries. The grim spectacle became a common motif in Japanese textiles during the following decade.Persecution of Catholics resumed again in 1613 and culminated in 1640 with the destruction of the mission. The 26 Martyrs were canonized in 1862 and a museum and monument to the martyrs was erected in Nagasaki in 1962.Froes (1548-1597) arrived in Kyoto in 1565 following a decade spent in Goa and South East Asia. He remained in Japan until his death, working as a missionary and translator, and writing his History of Japan (not published until 1926) and a series of detailed letters on Japan and the state of the mission.This is the second edition; the work was published three times in 1599, first in Rome, followed by this Bologna printing, and again in Milan. A French translation was published in Rouen in 1600.

      Japan: early Edo. In the late 9th century, a new kind of poetry competition was developed in Japan: the utaawase. Themes were determined and a poet chosen from each team wrote a waka (a poem) for each given theme. The host appointed a judge for each theme and gave points to the winning team. The team which received the largest number of points was the winner. At first, utaawase was simply a playful entertainment, but as the poetic tradition deepened and developed, it turned into a serious aesthetic contest, with considerably more formality. By the end of the 13th century, "a new genre of hand scroll emerged in which working people became the central focus. Known as shokunin uta awase e, or poetry contests among people from various occupations, these scrolls normally pair one representative each of two similar types of profession; a poem or two on a preestablished theme is inscribed beside each; and a judgement is recorded as to which poem is superior."-Barbara Ruch, "The Other Side of Culture in Medieval Japan" in Cambridge History of Japan, Vol. 3, pp. 512-13. The tradition continued well into the 19th century. Ryuho Hinaya (1599-1669), whose original surname was Nonoguchi, was a painter, poet, and calligrapher. A pupil of Tan'yu Kano and Sotatsu Tawaraya, he was particularly interested in illustrating haiku and he deeply influenced Matsuo Basho. The calligraphically written poems and the accompanying 23 colored illustrations of trades are probably copied from an earlier scroll by Hinaya himself. The following trades are depicted: "busshi," a sculptor of wooden religious statues and objects paired with "kyoji," a framer of sliding doors, scrolls, and books; "kaji," a blacksmith paired with "bansho," a carpenter; "hamaro," a toothpick maker paired with "juzushi," a maker of Buddhist rosary amulets; "katsurame," a female fishmonger paired with "oharame," a woman who sells kindling wood; "katanamaro," a swordsmith paired with a "orimonoshi," a textile worker; "miko," a nun who works at a shrine paired with "mekura," a blind musician; "onka," a seller of warm sweets paired with "kabenuri," a plasterer; "konkaki," a female indigo dyer paired with "kojiuri," a woman seller of koji culture; "nurishi," a lacquerware maker paired with "hinokimonoshi," a furniture maker using cedarwood; "mushiro," a maker of mats; "tobakuuchi," a gambler paired with "funabito," a boat rower; "sumi," a charcoal briquet carrier; and "shonin," a merchant paired with "shioyaki," a salt maker. The competing poems are written in a very fine calligraphic hand. The layout of the poems in extremely complex and sophisticated. In excellent condition. There are a few minor and carefully executed repairs. ❧ Chibbett, The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration, pp. 125-28.

        Anatomia del cavallo, infermita, et suoi rimedii

      Venice, Gaspare Bindoni, 1599 - 2 vols in one, folio, [xxxvi] 295; 386 [30], woodcut devices on titles, titles printed in red and black, with 64 full-page woodcut illustrations. First edition, second issue, one of the great rarities in the history of medicine and zoology. It is the first book devoted exclusively to the anatomy of an animal (the horse), and is considered comparable to Vesalius’ Fabrica, the illustrations of which strongly influenced those of Ruini. ‘In thoroughness of treatment and beauty of illustration, Ruini’s study of the horse set a pattern in zoological anatomy’ (Dibner).’ Occupying an isolated position is the splendid monograph on the Anatomy of the horse by Carlo Ruini of Bologna, published posthumously in 1599. It is the product not of a physician, nor of a professional veterinary surgeon, but of a lawyer. Nevertheless, it does for equine Anatomy a similar service to that which the Fabrica of Vesalius had done for human Anatomy; its truly magnificent figures need not fear comparison with those of Vesalius and of Eustachius, by the side of which they may be placed. The text is no less admirable than the figures; the description of the eye, ear, intestines, kidneys, and bladder being especially good. Ruini gives a clear account of the structure of the heart and of the mechanism of the pulmonary circulation. His book is the first devoted to the anatomy of an animal, and is one of the finest achievements of the heroic age of Anatomy’ (Singer, The evolution of anatomy).’At the hands of Ruini the subject of equine anatomy jumped at a single bound from the blackest ignorance to relative perfection, the degree of which it is difficult to exaggerate’ (Sir Frederick Smith, The early history of veterinary literature).A total of 15 editions appeared between 1598 and 1769.

        THE HISTORIE OF GUICCIARDIN: CONTAINING THE WARRES OF ITALIE AND OTHER PARTES

      London: Richard Field, 1599. Second Edition in English. The most important work of the Italian statesman, political theorist, and historian Guicciardini (1483-1540), this book was unprecedented in its scope, embracing the political history of all Italy. Pforzheimer says the book "was undoubtedly the greatest historical work that had appeared since the beginning of the modern era. It remains the most solid monument of Italian reason in the sixteenth century." He points out further that the book was clearly of interest to English readers because it went through three editions in English in 40 years (the first was in 1579), despite being very large and probably very costly. This work has become quite rare found complete and in such good condition.. 295 x 190 mm. (11 5/8 x 7 1/2"). 5 p.l., 459, 500-786, 789-943, [13] pp. (first and last leaves blank; complete despite pagination errors). Second Edition in English. Contemporary calf, covers with central filigree ornament and triple rule border in blind and gilt, raised bands, spine with gilt rules, ornaments, and later(?) morocco label. Front pastedown with the ownership signature of J. G. Woolfe, the book label of Steven St. Clair, a morocco armorial symbol (possibly cut from a binding?), and two modern descriptions pasted in. PMM 85 (1561 edition); Pforzheimer 442; Lowndes II, 954; STC 12459. Hinges cracked but in no danger, some light scuffing and abrasions to covers and spine, a bit of wear along the edges, but otherwise a nicely preserved and stately binding; interior with a few small, isolated rust spots and other small stains, occasional instances of light toning and faint foxing (a handful of leaves being slightly darker), three leaves with two-inch tears (two running into the text) and a few other minor paper flaws affecting text, but AN EXCELLENT COPY, THE MAJORITY OF THE CONTENTS REMARKABLY BRIGHT, CRISP, AND CLEAN.

Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. $8500.Plantin edition of this classic tragicomedy of the Spanish Renaissance—arguably the most important early work of Spanish literature aside from Don Quixote—published within a century of the unobtainable first edition.Fernando de RojasÂ’ novel written entirely in dialogue is a classic of Spanish literature and is generally considered to mark the beginning of the Renaissance in Spanish letters. “Often considered the first European novel, La Celestina was profoundly influential in the development of European prose fiction and is valued by critics today as much for its greatness as literature as for its historical significance” (Encyclopedia of Literature, 222). The author Rojas was a converted Jewish lawyer about whom little else is known. La Celestina was originally published anonymously in 1499; only the 1500 second edition acknowledged Rojas as the author. After the death of renowned printer Christophe Plantin in 1589, his son-in-law, Jan Moretus, took over the firm. Moretus and his descendants continued to print many works of note, such as the present work, “in officina Plantiniana.” PrinterÂ’s woodcut device on title page. Text in Spanish. Salvá 1170. Palau 51164. Peeters-Fontainas 252. Bookplate. Occasional early ink marginalia.Title page remargined along lower edge; skillful paper repairs to first two leaves of generally clean text. An extremely good copy of this 16th-century edition.

        Astronomia. Opus absolutissimum, in quo, qudquid unquam peritores mathematici in caelis observarunt, coordine, eamque; methodo traditur, ut cuius posthac facile innotescant quaecumque de astris ac planetis, necnon de eorum variis orbibus, motibus, passionibus, &c. dici possunt.

      Geneva, Jean de Tournes, 1599 - Folio (430 x 288 mm), pp [iv] 262 [2, blank], with woodcut printer's device on title and 175 woodcuts and woodcut diagrams, including 37 full-page woodcut astronomical figures of which 18 (one half-page and 17 full-page) have a total of 35 volvelles; title a bit dustsoiled, some marginal spotting, generally a fine copy in contemporary calf, gilt fillets on covers, spine with gilt compartments, some minor repairs to binding.Extremely rare Latin edition (first 1557) of Bassantin's beautifully produced work for calculating planetary positions, largely derived from Apianus' great Astronomicum Caesareum 1540. Many of the large woodcut diagrams and volvelles are directly copied from that work, including the first volvelle, a full-page celestial planisphere of the northern hemisphere. 'The size of this volume and the extent of its illustration make this an unusually fine example of the attention given to the printing of scientific works at this period' (Mortimer).James Bassantin (d. 1568) was a Scots astronomer and astrologer, born in the reign of James IV. He studied at the University of Glasgow, devoting himself to science and mathematics. He continued his education on the Continent in several countries, before settling in France as a teacher of mathematics, first in Lyons (where this work was first published) and then in Paris.Bassantin was knowledgeable of advances in German and Italian mathematics and astronomy. He produced a revised edition of Jacques Foucard's Paraphrase de l'astrolabe (Lyons 1555), which contained his 'Amplification de l'usage de l'astrolabe', reprinted several times. It demonstrates finding positions in ecliptic latitude of the moon, planets, and fixed stars, as well as the use of the shadow square.In 1562 Bassantin returned to Scotland. On route, according to Sir James Melville (Memoirs of his own life p 203), he met Sir Robert Melville, Sir James's brother, and predicted to him that there would be 'at length captivity and utter wreck' for Mary, Queen of Scots, at the hands of Elizabeth, and also that the kingdom of England would eventually fall of right to the crown of Scotland, but at the cost of many bloody battles, in which the Spaniards would take part. Bassantin was a convinced Protestant and in politics a supporter of the regent Murray (based on the ODNB entry).There is no established collation for this work. According to Mortimer 36 is the correct number of volvelles for the 1557 edition, not counting the retaining discs (18 in all) at the centre. The Honeyman and Horblit copies of the 1557 edition had 35 volvelles, and the two Harvard copies described by Mortimer each have 33. The missing volvelle in our copy would probably be for the figure on p 187, which has one disc only, as in the Harvard copies.This edition is dedicated to the Palatine Count Frederick IV.Provenance: inscription on title: 'Ex libris Caroli Parisot Sacri Regni Imperii Equitis empt.

        The Fountaine of Ancient Fiction. Wherein is Lively Depictured the Images and Statues of the Gods of the Ancients, with their Proper and Perticular Expositions

      London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1599. First and only edition in English of Renaissance mythographer Vincenzo Cartari's influential introduction to the deities of the ancient Greek and Roman world, first published in Italian as Le imagini de i Dei degli Antichi in 1556. Translated as The Fountaine of Ancient Fiction, Cartari's work (liberally supplemented by translator Linche) made the iconography of the ancient gods widely accessible to Elizabethan readers: "By [her] shield (in that Minerva is taken for Wisdome and Knowledge) is understood the roundness and compasse of the world, governed with wise decrees, politike lawes, & discreet commandments. By the Dart or Speare, is unshadowed the force, virtue, and power of wisdom, & that the words and speeches of a learned man do prevaile." Cartari draws not only from the expected classical sources (Homer, Aeschylus, Ovid, Virgil, Pliny) but also from Renaissance mythographers like Boccaccio, and his straightforward account of the gods provided Tudor artists and writers with "a symbolic vocabulary" (Renaissance Quarterly). Translated, with many additions, by Elizabethan poet Richard Linche. ESTC S107896. A very good copy of a scarce and important work, with no auction records recorded in more than thirty years. Quarto, early nineteenth-century three-quarter green morocco over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. Woodcut emblem on title page, two woodcut headpieces and three woodcut initials. Stab holes visible in gutter. Contemporary (1601) marginalia on C1, slightly later marginalia ("Milton / Par. Lost") on G1, smudged word in early ink on 2B4v. Lacking first blank (A1). Binding rubbed, title page heavily restored and resized, final leaf also repaired, some infrequent dampstaining mostly around gatherings G and Z.
