        The Historie of Philip de Commines Knight, Lord of Argenton. [Translation by Thomas Danett, with dedicatory Epistle to Lord Burghley signed by him.]

      London: Imprinted at London by Ar. Hatfield for I. Norton, 1601 - Second edition in English of a primary source for 15th century European history. Commines has been called "the first critical and philosophical historian since classical times" (Oxford Companion to English Literature), principally for his shrewd and practical insight into the political realities of his day, his psychological insight, and his forthright account of the machinations of the politicians he described. His history is divided into 8 books, the first six of which deal with the reign of Louis XI; the last two deal with the Italian wars of Charles VIII, ending with his death Thomas Danett's English translation was first published in 1596. In his dedication to Lord Burghley, dated 1 Nov. 1596, Danett states that thirty years before he presented Lord Burghley and "the late Earle of Leicester my Lord" his 'historie of Commines, rudely translated into our vulgar toong,' and that he later revised and enlarged his translation at the request of Sir Christopher Hatton. According to the DNB, Danett (fl. 1566-1601) was also the author of the following works: "1. The Description of the Low Countreys and of the Prouinces thereof, gathered into an Epitome out of the Historie of Lodouico Guicchardini,' London, 1593, dedicated to Lord Burghley. 2. A Continuation of the Historie of France from the death of Charles the Eight, where Comines endeth, till the death of Henry the Second [1559], collected by Thomas Danett, gentleman,' London, 1600, dedicated to Lord Buckhurst. ." Second edition in English. Small folio. Title page within large historiated woodcut border bearing the royal arms and motto ("Honi soit qui mal y pense" ), the crest of Burghley, and the printer's beehive device; several large inital woodcut capitals throughout, and genealogical table in rear.

        La rissa di Bruttobuono (The Brawl of Bruttobuono).

      Roma, 1601 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte e bulino, cm 35 x 50 circa (alla lastra) più margini; il nome dell'Autore, inventore e incisore della rappresentazione, ?F. Villoemena jn.?, è riportato in basso a sinistra, in lastra, su una sorta di cartiglio inserito nella scena che, in corrispondenza della zampa del cane, assomiglia a un sasso su cui la zampa anteriore alzata sembra stia per poggiare; al verso del foglio, a circa metà del lato destro (destro del recto e sinistro del verso), in corrispondenza del braccio sinistro in movimento di uno dei due uomini più spostati sulla sinistra della scena (quello che nella mano destra, più bassa, tiene pronto per essere lanciato un sasso), è presente la nitida filigrana della pigna d'uva sormontata da coroncina (o giglio). L'opera è anche nota coi titoli ?La baruffa di Bruttobuono? o ?La rissa dei popolani?. Il Villamena illustra qui, in una magnifica scena realizzata alla riconoscibile maniera dell'incisore, con una incisione caratterizzata da grandi figure e ampi tratteggi che molto lasciano alle parti bianche del chiaroscuro, un episodio di ordine pubblico realmente accaduto nel 1601: sullo sfondo una probabile campagna romana, e in primo piano lo scoppio di una lite, frequentissime in quel periodo a Roma, con l?intervento di un capopopolo per fermarla. Francesco Villamena (Assisi, verso il 1566 ? Roma, 1624), disegnatore, pittore e incisore al bulino, operò a Roma nel primo quarto del XVII secolo. Secondo la tradizione, fu allievo di Cornelius Cort, ne copiò le incisioni, e lavorò, in età giovanile, con Agostino Carracci. Realizzò poche incisioni come sue proprie originali, e riprodusse invece i disegni di molti artisti, tra cui Raffaello, Paolo Veronese, Federico Barocci, Girolamo Muziano e Giulio Veronese. Rara e importante incisione, presente al Gabinetto Nazionale delle Stampe di Roma. Esemplare ben impresso su carta fine, in ampi margini, ottimo lo stato di conservazione.

SHEWING THE COURSE THEY KEPT, AND WHAT OTHER NOTABLE MATTERS HAPPENED UNTO THEM IN THE SAYD VOYAGE.

      London: [Simon Stafford and Felix Kingston] for Cuthbert Burby & John Flasket, 1601. - [1],58,[4] leaves. Woodcut vignette of sailing ship on titlepage. Extra- illustrated with 19 engravings (numbered 1-3, 19, 4-18) from Van Neck's HISTORIALE BESCHRIJVINGHE (Amsterdam, 1619). Text and plates "inlaid to size," remargined to 9 1/4 x 6 3/4 inches. 19th-century mottled calf, double-fillet gilt border on boards, spine gilt in compartments, gilt leather label. Boards and spine slightly worn. Titlepage and plates mounted to larger sheets; printed pages of text inlaid in larger sheets. Engraved plates annotated in ink with corresponding "page" (leaf, recto or verso) of text. Lacking the dedication leaf (paraph 2) and leaf Q4 (blank), pages shaved (with occasional slight loss of text in lower margin), rust hole in leaf P3 (affecting a few letters on recto), tear in leaf Q3 (repaired, not affecting text). Overall, a very good copy, with the 1860 engraved bookplate of the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield on front pastedown, shelf marks inscribed on verso of front free endpaper. Embossed stamp of the Earls of Macclesfield in upper extended margins of titlepage leaf and following two leaves of text. The first English edition of Van Neck's account of his 1598 voyage to the East Indies, translated from the 1601 Amsterdam edition of the author's HET TWEEDE BOECKE. The Dutch navigator, who represented the Verre Company, commanded three ships which were part of the first successful Dutch trading voyage to the region. The other two ships were commanded by Wybrand Van Warwijck and Jacob Van Heemskerk. Van Neck's vessel became separated from the other two after rounding the Cape of Good Hope, and the three did not reunite again until his arrival in Java in late December 1598. Unlike his Dutch predecessor, Cornelis Houtman, who three years earlier had seized the port of Bantam, Van Neck dealt diplomatically with the natives. "Rather than rejecting the inflated prices asked by the local ruler, he offered to pay over the odds in order to cement a lasting relationship.Van Neck's was the most profitable of the pre-VOC [Dutch East India Company] voyages. Despite the apparently high price paid for spices, he netted a profit of 300 per cent on his overall costs. In 1601, fourteen fleets comprising sixty-five ships sailed for the East Indies, but by that time competition between rival Dutch operators, as well as with the Portuguese, had inflated prices and none were as successful as Van Neck's first enterprise" - Howgego. While focused on activity in the East Indies, EUROPEAN AMERICANA notes that the text includes references to Brazil and tobacco from the West Indies. Van Neck's account was popular throughout the first half of the 17th century and was reprinted and translated into German and French as well as English. It also appeared in collections of voyages such as those by De Bry, Hulsius, and Colijn. This extra- illustrated copy includes nineteen engraved plates from the Amsterdam 1619 edition of Van Neck's HISTORIALE BESCHRIJVINGHE published by Michiel Colijn. The images are mounted on separate sheets and bound in the book at the appropriate portion of the text. The engravings are annotated in ink, indicating the appropriate page (i.e. recto or verso of a specific leaf) related to the image. A rare book on the market. Prior to this copy from the Macclesfield sale in March 2007, the last copy previously available was sold at the Boise Penrose sale in 1971. Both EUROPEAN AMERICANA and STC record only two copies in the U.S., at the Huntington and NYPL, the latter noted as imperfect. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 601/66. STC 18417 (noting quires A-G printed by Stafford, paraph 2 and quires H-Q printed by Kingston). TIELE-MULLER, p.144. HOWGEGO N13.

      Venice: Giunta, 1601., 1601. 4to. pp. 8 p.l., 308 [i.e. 326], [blank leaf], [26]index & colophon. woodcut printer’s device on title & at end. woodcut initials. 24 full-page or nearly full-page woodcuts (incl. 2 plans) & 1 smaller text woodcut. contemporary limp vellum, overlapping fore-edges (short tear in spine, light stains to first 2 leaves, some leaves lightly embrowned, piece missing from lower margin of I1). H.P.Kraus booklabel. Fourth Edition of this famous work, which long remained the standard authority on the subject. Mercuriale’s systematic study of gymnastics and related games as practised by the ancient Greeks and Romans also examines the therapeutic value of exercise. A physician and professor at Padua, Bologna, and Pisa, Mercuriale was one of the first therapists to remark that exercise could have both beneficial and harmful results depending on a variety of factors, including technique, intensity and duration. The first edition, printed by Giunta in 1569, was illustrated by a single folding engraved plan. To the second edition of 1573 was added an attractive series of fine woodcuts, showing boxing, wrestling, dancing, discus throwing, weight lifting, balancing, &c. The same blocks were used for subsequent Giunta editions, as here, as well as for the 1672 Amsterdam edition printed by Frisius. On the title-page of the latter, the woodcuts are attributed to Christoforo Coriolano, a craftsman from Nuremberg, who is further described in the preface to the reader as the illustrator of Vasari’s Vite de’ piu eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori (1568). Thieme-Becker, however, suggested that they are the work of another German woodcut artist named Christoforo Chriegher. Brunet III 1646. Graesse IV 495. Thieme-Becker 415. cfAdams M1320. cfBib.

      Caragoca: Por Angelo Tauano, . 1601 - [180] leaves. Original limp vellum, contemporary ink title on spine. Contemporary ink signature on titlepage, mild tanning. An internally clean and bright copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. A rare early 17th- century Spanish edition of Marco Polo's description of his journey across Asia in the late 13th century, one of the most significant and resonant travel accounts in the history of human endeavor, and a key text in the perception in Europe of the East during the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This edition, printed in Zaragoza in 1601, is the first edition of the Spanish translation by humanist Martin Abarca de Bolea y Castro of Marco Polo's travel narrative, which replaced the antiquated Spanish version first printed by Cromberger in Seville, 1503. Bolea y Castro, the son of the vice-chancellor of Spain under Charles V and Phillip II, was a scion of one of Aragon's leading families. A lover of literature and humanist ideology, with a predilection for numismatics, Bolea y Castro spent some time serving in Spain's military, although the exact length of his service is not known. Interestingly, this rare translation is his only prose work. Born into a prominent Venetian trading family, Marco Polo (1254-1324) departed with his father and uncle toward the East in 1271, travelling through Syria, Jerusalem, Turkey, Persia, and India, to China and the court of Kublai Khan. Marco Polo became a favorite of the Khan and travelled throughout China over the next fifteen years as an emissary of the Mongol emperor. Polo returned to Venice in 1295, only to be briefly imprisoned in Genoa as a prisoner of war a few years later. During this imprisonment, in 1298, he dictated his adventures to Rusticiano (also called Rustichello) of Pisa, and the text became known as IL MILIONE. (The exact meaning of this term in Polo's time is still unclear, although it may refer to the popular belief regarding the traveller's great riches.) The original work was written in Franco-Italic, and was quickly translated into Latin and other languages by court clerks. Over one hundred extant manuscript versions, translations, and adaptations are recorded. First printed in a German language edition in Nuremberg in 1477, a Latin translation followed circa 1485 (Christopher Columbus possessed a copy of this Latin edition). The immense popularity of Polo's account is reflected in the numerous editions which followed printed in German, Latin, Portuguese, Spanish, French, English, and Dutch. Polo's account includes vivid descriptions of cities, waterways, architectural monuments, industries, natural resources, plants, and animals as well as reports on customs and traditions. In addition to Cathay and Mangi (the Mongol name for South China), Polo also writes of the native societies he visited in Tibet and southwestern China. Donald F. Lach, in his magisterial study, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE, writes that "other Europeans lived and worked in China during the thirteenth century, but Marco Polo was the only one, so far as is known, to travel and work there and to write an account of his experiences. For the first time in history Europe possessed a detailed narrative about China and its neighbors based upon more than hearsay and speculation.Marco Polo provided Europe with the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the East produced before 1550." A fascinating 17th-century Spanish edition of Marco Polo's travels, one of the most celebrated travel accounts of all time. OCLC records a single copy in Germany at the Bayerische Staatsbilbliothek.

        TRATADO DE LA IMPORTANCIA Y UTILIDAD QUE AY EN DAR POR ESCLAVOS A LOS INDIOS REBELADOS DE CHILE. DISPUTASE EN EL, SI ES LICITO, O NO EL DAR LOS POR ESCLAVOS: Y PONENSE RAZONES POR AMBAS PARTES, Y SUS RESPUESTAS: DEXANDO LA DETERMINACION A LOS SEÑORES VISOREY, Y AUDIENCIA DE LA CIUDAD DE LOS REYES.

      [Np, but likely Madrid. nd, but ca. ]. 1601 - [2],24pp. Folio. Dbd. Dampstained and soiled, top and bottom edges worn. Worm holes throughout, affecting a few words on each page. Contemporary underlining and marginal lines throughout, contemporary handwritten folio numbers on each recto. Still a good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. An extremely rare treatise which considers the question of whether rebellious Indians in Chile should become slaves. Addressed to the Viceroy and Audiencia of Peru, the work discusses whether slavery of conquered Indians is just or not, reviewing arguments on both sides of the question. Calderón approaches the problem in an intriguing manner by providing separate justifications, each in its own individual section of the text, for enslaving the Indians from the various points of view of the King, the Kingdom, and the Church. In turn, the author then provides responses to these various assertions, promoting the view that such slavery would be unjust. The last pages of the text consist of final responses and commentary. Calderón, the Canon of the Cathedral of Santiago, also served as Commissar of the Holy Office and the Holy Cross, and the General Vicar of the Bishopric of Santiago. He addresses the TRATADO. to the Viceroy of Peru, as well as numerous representatives of the royal government and the Catholic Church who have convened to consider strategies for waging war against the Araucanian Indians of Southern Chile. The campaign to conquer these Indians was one of the most difficult and drawn-out conflicts between Europeans and American Indians in the colonial period, lasting from the mid-16th to the mid-17th centuries. The appearance of this treatise followed a particularly harsh setback for the Spanish in 1598 when "a general insurrection forced the Spaniards to evacuate all the territory to the south of the river Bio-Bio. The epilogue to this story is symbolic: Governor Martin García de Loyola, husband of Princess Beatriz and former conqueror of Tupac Amaru, was put to death, and his head was paraded on the tip of an Araucanian pike" (CAMBRIDGE HISTORY OF LATIN AMERICA). In looking toward an end to hostilities with the Indians, the author hopes that the Viceroy and the Audiencia Real will be able to answer his query quickly. In order to assist these officials in considering these issues, he presents the various arguments in as orderly a fashion as possible. Arguments justifying slavery of the native populations include the principle that military victors who have not been compensated otherwise should receive the economic reward of possessing slaves. This is particularly true, it is noted, given the violent transgressions that the Indians have committed. It is also noted that as slaves, the Indians are able to be instructed in the Christian faith. In contesting the justifications for enslaving the Indians, the author notes the difficulty of differentiating those natives who were fighting the Spanish and those who did not engage in conflict. Calderón adds that many Indians have shown obedience to the crown and the church, have ridden themselves of their old tribal leaders, and have suffered greatly during the conflict with the Spanish. A fascinating work documenting both sides of the debate in the early 17th century concerning the legitimacy of enslaving conquered native populations. Extremely rare. OCLC records a single copy, at the National Library of Chile; RLIN adds one additional copy, at the Bancroft. Recognizing both the rarity and significance of the text, Medina provides a transcription of the entire work in his BIBLIOTECA HISPANO- CHILENA. MEDINA (BHC) 195. PALAU 39732. OCLC 55243154.

        Petits Voyages. Pars I-XII. [Including:] Gasparo Balbi. Navigationis ex Alepo ad regnum Pegui usque, novem continuis annis [...] absolutae descriptio.

      Frankfurt, Erasmus Kempffer, 1601-1628.. Folio (220 x 317 mm). 12 books bound in 4 volumes. With 10 engr. title pages, 252 engraved illustrations, 3 engr. views, 17 engr. maps, and 3 armorial engravings. Bound at the end are 5 extra maps and views (including a world map and a view of Jerusalem) from Marino Sanuto's 1611 "Liber secretorum fidelium crucis". Slightly later Spanish limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Ties.. All twelve books of Theodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies and considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material on Africa, India, and South Asia. Notably, book seven includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima. Balbi was the first to record the place names along the coast of modern Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Practically "none of the names of places on the coast between Qatar and Ras al Khaima occur in other sources before the end of the eighteenth century" (Slot). - A composite set, nine books in their first, the remaining three in their second edition. As several of the travellers were Protestants and their works banned by the Catholic church, this set was censored by the Spanish inquisition of Granada in 1708 (cf. vol. II, verso of title). Condemned authors are identified on the title pages, and various passages considered too crude or suggestive have been struck out or obliterated. In vol. X, a marginal note on p. 27 attempts to refute an account denouncing the cruelty of the Spanish in America. - Last in the library of Jean-Paul Morin, with his bookplate on the first flyleaf. Rather browned throughout, with occasional slight edge defects; two title pages are repaired. Wants a total of 11 plates, as well as the appendix on the Congo in vol. II and the Notice to the Reader in vol. IV. Balbi's section is complete and well preserved, with only two minor censorship marks. The only comparable copy in recent trade history is the Macclesfield set in contemporary gilt calfskin, auctioned off at Sotheby's in 2007 and currently offered by a U.S. dealer consortium for $150,000: that copy, however, is incomplete, wanting the final volumes XI and XII - the latter of which is "so rare that even Church lacked much of the text". - Brunet I, 1334.

Medizinstudent in Montpellier 1551-54, half er seinem Lehrer G. Rodelet bei der Redigierung seines Fischbuches. Nach einem Aufenthalt in den Südniederlanden 1555-60 studierte er 1560-62 in Paris; an der Bewegung der Hugenotten beteiligt, flüchtete er 1562 mit dem jungen Breslauer Thomas Rehdiger (1540-76), dessen Mentor er 1561-63 war, nach Löwen, bereiste 1564/65 mit dem Augsburger Bankierssohn Jakob Fugger Spanien und Portugal, hielt sich dann bei Freunden in Brügge 1565-67 und Mecheln 1567-73 auf und wurde 1573 von Maximilian II. nach Wien berufen, um dort einen Medizinalkräutergarten einzurichten. Von Rudolf II. auf Betreiben katholischer Kreise 1577 seines Amtes enthoben, blieb er dennoch in Wien und setzte seine botanischen Wanderungen fort, die ihn vor allem durch Niederösterreich, das Burgenland und Südwest-Ungarn führten, unterstützt durch Balthasar von Batthyány, auf dessen Besitzungen in Güssing und Schlaining er oft verweilte. 1588 ging Clusius, dem Landgraf Wilhelm IV. von Hessen ein jährliches Subsidium ausgesetzt hatte, nach Frankfurt, von wo er 1593 einem Ruf an die Universität Leiden folgte. Viermal war Clusius auch in England (1561, 1571, 1579, 1580). - Seine Werke, in denen erstmals nicht mehr die Nützlichkeit der Pflanzen im Mittelpunkt steht, zeichnen sich durch exakte Angaben und viele, oft überraschende Details bei den Artbeschreibungen aus und zeigen schon Ansätze einer binären Nomenklatur mit gelegentlicher Beifügung des Namens des Autors. Die Arbeiten über die iberische und über die österreichisch-ungarische Pflanzenwelt - für diese Gebiete durch mehr als 100 Jahre maßgebend - sind die ersten größeren Länderfloren überhaupt. Botanische Exkursionen, so unter anderem auf den Ötscher und Schneeberg, stempeln Clusius zum ersten Erschließer der Alpenflora, die er auch in seinem Wiener Garten zog und beobachtete. Auf alpine Primeln, die Clusius 1582 nach Holland sandte, gehen unsere heutigen Gartenprimeln mit ihren zahllosen Varietäten zurück, wie überhaupt Wien durch ihn zum Zentrum wurde, von dem aus die verschiedensten Gartenblumen, wie Tulpen, Narzissen und Hyazinthen, ihren Weg zur Eroberung der europäischen Gärten antraten. Wien verdankt Clusius die erste Roßkastanie (1576) und die erste Kartoffel (1588); durch Sendungen an seine Korrespondenten leitete er die Verbreitung dieser beiden Pflanzen in weiten Teilen Europas ein. Übersetzungen verschiedenster Art, Landkarten und Beiträge zur Altertumskunde vervollständigen sein Lebenswerk.

Termina prometendo uma segunda parte, que não se chegou a imprimir. Clarimundo foi reimpresso em Lisboa em 1522 e 1601, e em Coimbra a 1555. Apesar de que os livros de cavalarias caíram de moda e de ser uma obra bastante volumosa, manteve sua popularidade durante um período considerável, já que mesmo atingiu duas edições mais no século XVIII, uma em 1742 e outra em Lisboa em 1790. Este livro está na origem ou baseia-se na lenda de que o Conde D. Henrique era filho dum Rei da Hungria.(Wikipedia). Encadernação inteira de pele século XVIII. Com varios restauros profissionais, reforço de papel no frontispicio, nas primeiras paginas e varios furos de bicho. Obra rara. Bom exemplar. The author was educated in the palace of Manuel I of Portugal, he composed, at the age of twenty, a romance of chivalry, the Chronicle of the Emperor Clarimundo, in which he is said to have had the assistance of Prince John (afterwards King John III). (Wikipedia). Eighteenth century full leather binding. Frontispiece, first pages and some wormholes professionally restored. Inscriptions. Previous owner's bookplate. Scarce. Overall good copy.

        Amour tirannique, tragi-comedie

      Scudery, M. de (Georges) (1601-1667). Amour tirannique, tragi-comedie. Paris: Chez Augustin Courbe, imprimeur & libraire de monsieur frere du roy, dans la petite sale du Palais, a la Palme, 1639. Original edition. Reference: Tchemerzine X, 267. (Lancaster discusses a Paris: Courbe edition without the prefatory Discourse by Sarrazin and with a Priv of 23 February 1639, a printing of 2 February. He argues that the inclusion of the Discourse required a new printing with the May and July dates). Quarto. Old wrappers. Leaf of frontis after Carol le Brun, verso blank; leaf of title, verso blank; 4p dedication a Madame D'Aiguillon; leaf Discourse de la tragedie; 2p a Messieur de l'Accademie; 23p Discourse de la tragedie; 1p acteurs; 110p text; 2p priv 2 May 1639, acheve 2 July 1639. Collation: []1, e2, A-C4, A-P4. (G3 missigned D2, H2 missigned F2). Dampstains, heavy in spots, L2 damaged margin extending 1" into text, loss of a few words. A few words or names crossed off of printed title. One of the major tragedies of the author. Cardinal Richelieu championed this as a rival to "Le Cid."The source of the plot, according the Batereau, is Tacitus' (XII, ch 51) account of the Armenian prince Rhadamistus and La Calprenede's tragedy Mort de Mithridate (1636) both set before the wall of a besieged town in Asia Minor. For most critics L'amovr tiranniqve now seems like an attempt to rival Corneille's El Cid, 1637. Scudery wanted to improve on El Cid which he had criticized* by "setting a stage in such a way that there could be no doubt as to the location of the action, by leaving no room for criticism that one of his leading persons was unconnected with the main plot." (Lancaster). Scudery's play, unlike Corneille's, is a melodrama not a tragedy (although the early editions of Corneill's play identify itself as a tragicomedy, see Tchmerzine). Scudery's play completely adheres to the unities.** At the end of the play he brings to life the person who was supposed to have been killed. Also, the villain repents at the end. The ending was created to counteract the criticism he had made of Corneille's play which did not, he felt, show the proper, uninterruped triumph of good versus evil. Scudery's play has some scenic qualities and vivacity of a melodrama, especially when the assault of the moors is in preparation. It certainly was a popular success, acted four times before Richelieu and the dedicatee the duchess d'Aiguillon. The prefatory Discourse de la tragedie by Sarrazin praises the play by noting that the action rises to the point where grandeur is given to the play, that the unities are kept. He would prefer to call the work a tragedy, in accordance with Greek usage which allowed such a classification, even if the ending were happy. *Corneille's El Cid while highly approved by the public, was attacked by Cardinal Richelieu and his followers who procured a judgement against it by the Academie drafted by Chapelain (Sentiments de l'Acad?e sur le Cid, 1638) criticizing El Cid on point of style and grammar. **According to Isaac D'Israeli (11 May 1766 - 19 January 1848) "Scudery first introduced in his 'L'Amour Tyrannique' a strict observance of the four-and-twenty hours which he drew from Aristotle; and in a preface by Sarrasin the necessity and advantages of this rule was urged; a regulation which the free spirit of the British muse has not submitted to."

Leipzig, 1902 (Draws on Tallemant, Somaize, Rath?, Boutron and Livet); (D'Israeli, Isaac) A review of D'Israeli's Curiositites of Literature, 5th ed. London: Murrary, 1807; Ralph Griffiths, G. E.

En effet il s'agit de l'écrit le plus célèbre d'Herrera. En effet dans son Historia general de los hechos de los Castellanos en las islas y tierra firme del Mar Oceano (Madrid, 1601-1615), il relate l'histoire des colonies espagnoles en Amérique de 1492 à 1554. Sa position de chroniqueur royal lui a permis de consulter de nombreuses sources aujourd'hui disparues même s'il a pu à l'occasion s'inspirer largement des travaux de ses prédécesseurs, principalement de Bartolomé de Las Casas. Il fit preuve de beaucoup de prudence dans l'utilisation des divers documents mis à sa disposition et le résultat de ses recherches est dans l'ensemble précis et précieux pour l'étude d'une part de l'histoire des premières colonies espagnoles mais aussi des institutions et coutumes des peuples américains autochtones.

These massive volumes collect 461 consilia (detailed analysis of specific legal points) by a notable Mantuan jurist. Most of these deal with canon law. This collection was first published in Venice in four volumes from 1573-1586. Both editions are very scarce today, both as sets and individual volumes. OCLC locates 6 complete copies of the second edition, 1 in North America (Harvard Law School). Another copy located at the Library of Congress. Noyes [1805-1864] was a leading New York lawyer and a member of the commission to codify the state's laws, which resulted in the Field Codes. A man of extensive learning, he owned one of the finest law libraries in the United States. Adams, Catalogue of Books Printed in the Continent of Europe, 1501-1600 B2523.
