Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Ex officina Ludovici Elzevirii, 1599. 8vo. (XX),167,(23)(1 blank) Vellum 16 cm (Ref: Dibdin 1,215: 'an indispensable work to peruse, for those who are curious in the learning of the author'; Willems 44; Rahir 26; Berghman 1283; Schoenemann 1,166/67) (Details: 5 thongs laced through both joints; colophon at the end: 'Lugduni Batavorum, Excudebat Ioannes Balduini. Anno 1599, mense Julio') (Condition: Short title in ink on the back; vellum somewhat soiled; 2 hardly noticeable pinpoint wormholes in the first 6 leaves; some foxing; name on front flyleaf erased, leaving a small hole) (Note: Arnobius, a teacher of rhetoric at Sicca Veneria in Numidia 'was suddenly converted to Christianity (ca. A.D. 295) and a year or 2 later, at the instance of his bishop, wrote seven books 'Adversus Nationes', Against the Pagans. His work throws light on the Christian-pagan debate immediately before the Great Persecution, while the venom of his attack on traditional Roman paganism shows that this was by no means dead'. (OCD 2nd edition p. 122) His style is easy-flowing. Arnobius makes little use of the New, and none of the Old Testament. His view of God is platonic. The unintended side effect of the efforts Arnobius and other Church Fathers to ridicule or crush paganism, was that their writings form an archive which preserves knowledge and practices of polytheism in the years of its decline in late antiquity. Just as the early christians bolstered their piety by contrasting it with the demonic foulness of pagan religion, so the protestants of the 16th century used the … [Click Below for Full Description]

DE GODOY Pedro (Petrus)
1599. Volumi I° e III° di quest'opera teologica di un tomista domenicano che condivise il sistema filosofico-teologico di San Tommaso, collocandosi nella terza fase del tomismo, che si sviluppò tra il XVI e il XVIII secolo (fase delle Dispute). I tomisti, di fronte alla riforma protestante, approfondirono le dottrine della libertà, della grazia, della giustificazione e della predestinazione. Pedro de Godoy, O.P. (Aldeanueva de la Vera, 1599 - Sigüenza, 25 gennaio 1677) fu un importante teologo della seconda metà del XVII secolo, che ha tenuto la cattedra di teologia a Salamanca per 25 anni fino al 1664. Fu poi nominato vescovo di Osma e dopo di Sigüenza. Ha scritto questo ampio commento della Summa Theologica che è stato un grande successo e ha aperto la strada per le speculazioni dottrinali della scuola domenicana. La dizione episcopi oxomensis viene dal fatto che la diocesi di Osma-Soria in latino si chiama: Dioecesis Oxomensis -Soriana) ed è una sede della Chiesa cattolica suffraganea dell'arcidiocesi di Burgos.

1599. (ROJAS, Fernando de). Celestina. Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea. [Leyden]: En la Oficina Plantiniana, [1599]. 16mo, 18th-century half vellum, spine lettered in ink. 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 Rojas' 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.” Printer's woodcut device on title page. Text in Spanish. Salvá 1170.

POMODORO (Giovanni)
Rome, Stefano de Paulini, 1599 Folio, (57) leaves including 51 engraved plates ; contemporary vellum. One of the best descriptions and introductions to 16th-century mathematical, surveying and engineering instruments. This richly illustrated manual of Euclidean geometry by Pomodoro is important for its realistic representations and full descriptions of contemporary mathematical instruments. Indeed, plate 1 shows 16 Italian mathematical, surveying instruments of the time. Pomodoro explains the construction and uses of each of them. This is an unexpected and scarce documentation for Renaissance instruments. In the second part, Pomodoro gives an early general theory of surveying with a very early surveying circle or circumferentor. An important introduction to 16th-century scientific instrumentation. Scarce first edition, first issue, in contemporary binding.

LIPSE (Juste).
Antverpiae, Ex Officina Plantiniana, Apud Ioannem Moretum. M.D.XCIX. 1599. 1599 1 vol. in-4° (250 x 170 mm.) de [8] ff., 267 pp., [4] ff. 30 gravures sur cuivre dont 10 in-texte et 20 à pleine page comprises dans la pagination. Pleine basane d'époque, dos à nerfs muet orné de fers à froid. (quelques déchirures recollées, trous de vers marginaux, un angle restauré avec petit manque de texte p. 63). Curieux exemplaire de cet ouvrage sur les fortifications et machines de guerre, dû au prolifique Juste Lipse (1547-1606). Les premiers feuillets (titre avec vignette, dédicace, épître) sont ceux de la seconde édition de 1599, dont les bibliographes nous disent quelle compte 218 pp., mais le reste de louvrage, (à partir du 2ème feuillet) correspond à lédition originale en 267 pp., illustrée de 30 gravures, et publiée en 1596. Proche de limprimeur Plantin (dont la marque figure dailleurs au dernier feuillet du présent ouvrage) qui imprima la majorité de ses ouvrages, Juste Lipse est un humaniste flamand qui s'illustra dans de nombreux domaines. Cest sans doute lauteur que Plantin imprima le plus, et avec le plus grand soin, marque de son amitié indéfectible. La première partie de luvre de Lipse est essentiellement consacrée à la philologie, à la philosophie et aux historiens latins (Sénèque et Tacite). Citons : « Variae lectiones », 1569, « Antiquae lectiones », 1575 , « Epistolicae quaestiones », 1577, « Manuductio ad philosophiam stoicam » et « Physiologia Stoicorum », 1604), « De constantia in publicis malis », 1584 ; « Politicorum sive civilis doctrinae libri sex », 1589.

Antonio TEMPESTA (Firenze 1555 - Roma 1630)
1599. Acquaforte, circa 1599, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nel presumibile secondo stato di tre. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame e completa della linea marginale, lieve restauri all'angolo superiore ed inferiore sinistro, per il resto in eccellente stato di conservazione. L'opera fa parte della serie "Le quattro età del mondo". L'indirizzo dell'editore compare solo nella prima lastra delle quattro che compongono la serie; l'esemplare è conforme, per carta, qualità ed omogeneità dell'impressione, a quello riportato nella scheda precedente, e per questo può considerarsi un secondo stato, edito da Cesare Capranica nel 1599. "Etching, circa1599, signed on plate at lower left. Example (probably) in the second state of three. Magnificent proof, on contemporary laid paper, no watermark, trimmed at the platemark, with borderline, small repaired areas at upper and lower left corners, otherwise in excellent conditions. This print belongs to the series ""The four ages of the world"". The editor's address appears only on the first plate of the four that make up this series. This example is similar to the previous catalogue item regarding paper, quality and homogeneity. For this reason it can be thought of as belonging to the second state, edited by Cesare Capranica in 1599." Bartsch vol. 17, pag. 178, 1332. 332 220
