Giovanni Battista STROZZI (?-1654 oder 1619-1681). Rom, 24. September 1639.
Feder mit brauner Tinte auf Büttenpapier, 1 Wasserzeichen, 2 Seiten, 4° (gefaltetes Doppelblatt), Zustand: Faltspuren, größerer brauner Fleck an der Innenkante. Brief von Giovan Battista Strozzi an den kurz zuvor zum Herzog von Amalfi ernannten Octavio Piccolomini (1599-1656). Der Schreiber, Giovan Battista Strozzi, ist entweder mit Giovan Battista Strozzi (?-1654), Sohn des Lorenzo Strozzi (1561-1595) und der Lorenza Emilia Guicciardini zu identifizieren, oder mit dem später geborenen Giovan Battista Strozzi (1619-1681), Sohn des Lorenzo Strozzi (1595-1671) und der Maria di Lorenzo Machiavelli. Octavio Piccolomini (1599-1656) diente im Dreißigjährigen Krieg als kaiserlicher General Wallensteins sowie als Kommandeur von dessen Leibgarde. In der zweiten Hälfte des Dreißigjährigen Krieges war Piccolomini an fast allen erfolgreichen Aktionen der Kaiserlichen Truppen beteiligt. Seinen größten Schlachtenerfolg errang Piccolomini am 17. Juni 1639 bei Diedenhofen in Lothringen, wo er ein französisches Heer unter Maréchal Feuquières vernichtete. Für diesen Sieg - einer der letzten großen Schlachten des Dreißigjährigen Krieges - wurde er vom spanischen König Philipp I(als König von Neapel dieses Namens der III., 1605-1665) mit dem Herzogtum Amalfi belehnt. In seinem Brief bringt Strozzi seine Freude über die Ernennung Piccolominis zum Ausdruck und versichert ihm seiner weiteren Ergeben- und Verbundenheit.

[Cartari, Vincenzo]; Linche, Richard (translator)
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.

POMODORO, Giovanni.
Rome: Apresso Stefano de Paulini, 1599. First edition, first issue, of this finely illustrated manual of Euclidean geometry and its practical applications for surveyors, architects and others, unusual for being printed in folio, and a rather large folio for the period. The first plate illustrates surveying and measuring instruments; this is followed by a series of plates with Euclidean geometrical diagrams, and then by attractive plates of surveying and measuring problems, including architectural plans and elevations of buildings and streets. Many of the surveying scenes include figures in gentlemanly or military costumesor nude. The first 44 plates were designed by Pomodoro, but he died before the work was complete and the text was provided by Giovanni Scala (1547-1600), who also supplied a further seven plates. The fame of Pomodoro's treatise is attested by the fact that, just one year after its publication, it was cited by the architect Giorgio Vasari the Younger (1562-1625) (the nephew of the art historian of the same name) in his manuscript Raccolto ... di varii instrumenti per misurare con la vista: six of the 76 folios of the manuscript refer to Pomodoro, and Vasari traced illustrations from Tavolas I and XLI-XLIV (Brusaporci, p. 216). This is a very rare book: OCLC lists 5 copies in US (Burndy, Cornell, Harvard, Iowa State, Michigan); COPAC lists BL and Wellcome only; ABPC/RBH record only one copy sold at auction since the Honeyman sale (Christie's, 6 June 2001, lot 384, £4230, modern binding).

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudio.
Venice: heirs of Melchior Sessa, 1598-1599. Three parts in one volume, quarto, with 69 double-page engraved maps, and several woodcut diagrams, early owner's name at foot of title-page; contemporary limp vellum, titled in ink on the spine. Classic sixteenth-century edition of the great work of the classical geographer Ptolemy, updated with "modern" maps showing Renaissance discoveries and new geographical concepts. The atlas is notable for its detailed mapping of the Americas, but also for four maps which demonstrate in some detail contemporary perceptions of a southern continent, and which are notable for the enormous, if largely spurious, advances that had been made from the 1574 edition of the same work (see previous item).The double-hemisphere world map which begins the second, "modern", part of the Atlas was, when Ruscelli first produced it in 1561, the first such map to appear in an Atlas (Shirley, 110). However it showed no southern continent at all, whereas by the time of its revision for this edition a massive continent has been added, with the legend "Hanc continentem Australem nonnulli Magellanica regionem ab eius inventore noncupant... Terra Australis". A large New Guinea is shown at the extreme left while at the right there are islands of the East Indies that did not appear in the earlier version. Another double-page map shows the islands of the East Indies in some detail, while the large map of the Americas and the map of Asia both contain detailed references to a southern continent. These two maps also appear in Anania's L'Universale fabrica del mondo, Venic … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

STEVIN, Simon.
Leiden: Ex officina Plantiniana apud Christophorum Raphelengium. Academiae Lugduno-Batavae Typographum, 1599. First Latin edition of Stevin's extremely rare and important work on the determination of longitude using magnetic variation. Originally published in Dutch as De Havenvinding, "the [Latin] translation appeared almost simultaneously with the original Dutch version" (Crone et al, p. 375); English and French translations followed later in the same year. "In a seafaring nation like the Dutch republic matters of navigation were, of course, of great importance. In addition to his astronomical works, Stevin ... approached the subject of determining the longitude of a ship, a problem that was not fully solved until the nineteenth century. Several previous authors had suggested that longitude might be determined by measuring the deviation of the magnetic needle from the astronomical meridian, a suggestion based on the assumption that the earth-wide distribution of terrestrial magnetism was known. Since the determination of latitude was well known, such a measurement would allow the sailor to chart longitudinal position against the latitudinal circle. Stevin, in his booklet, gave a clear explanation of this method; he differed from Petrus Plancius and Mercator in that he did not rely upon a priori conceptions of the way in which geomagnetic deviation depends upon geographical position. Although he was willing to offer a conjecture about this dependence, Stevin insisted on the necessity of collecting actual measurements from all possible sources and urged the establishment of … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOAISTUAU, Pierre.
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. [Attributes: First Edition]

Classical Authors: Lutetia Parisoiorum Abrahamum Saugranium & Gulielmum des Rues, viâ Bellouacensi 1599. pp19,pp169;[4f] pp96. Quarto. Titles in red and black; headpieces and initials parallel text in Greek and Latin; 2 parts in one volume. Rebound, mid 20th century quarter Rexine over marbled boards. The illustrations show military formations , a battering ram, siege towers and weapons. The Strategikos (Στρατηγικός) is a short but comprehensive work on the duties of a general. It is dedicated to Quintus Veranius Nepos, consul in AD 49, and legate of Britain. It was the chief authority for the military writings of the emperors Maurice and Leo VI, and Maurice of Saxony, who consulted it in a French translation and expressed a high opinion of it. It explains the broad principles of command, the duties of a general, 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). Onasander's Strategikos is one of the most important treatises on ancient military matters and provides information not commonly available in other ancient works on Greek military tactics, especially concerning the use of the light infantry in battle. The text first appeared in a Latin translation by Nicolaus Saguntinus, Rome, 1494. First 2 leaves of dedication cut short just above page number. Titles toned.

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.

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.
