Petrarca, Francesco
Lugduni: Apud Samuelem Crispinum 8vo (16.8 cm; 6.625"). [16] ff., 96, 93–396, 381–683 (i.e., 703), [1 (blank)] p.. 1601 Famous as he is for his sonnets and influence on the development of the Italian language, to understand best why Petrarch (1304–74) is often labelled the father of Renaissance humanism, one must read and know his correspondence, his epistolarum. In this edition they are, as stated on the title-page, "Opus non paucis mendis repurgatum & multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C. quae ut à caeteris dignosci possint ex Epistola ad lectorem praefixa intelligetur." The reference to "multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C." refers to the 65 letters found in the library of Johannes Chalasius, of Nîmes, and => published here for the first time. The volume is in roman type and has the Crispinus printer's device on the title-page, woodcut initials, and headpieces. This is one of several issues of an edition differing only in the imprint and in slight variations of paging. 18th-century half "white" calf, gilt spine, raised bands, boards covered with red and white combed paper; edges rubbed; two spine compartments lighter than others, some captions shaved by binder's knife. Old institutional bookplate (no other markings); 19th-century pencilling and pen notes on front free endpaper. A clean and nice copy.

LOUIS XIII
- LOUIS XIII (1601-1643). Roi de France et de Navarre. Lettre signée « Louis » (secrétaire), contresignée par le secrétaire d’État à la Guerre Sublet de Noyers, Abbeville, 1er juin 1641, au maréchal de Brézé, lieutenant général de l’armée de Catalogne, 1 page in-folio, adresse avec sceau aux armes sous papier. Étonnant document dans lequel le Roi rétablit la discipline dans ses troupes accusées d’accointances un peu trop bruyantes avec les prostituées. (Ancienne collection Philippe Zoummeroff). Louis XIII s’en prend aux filles à Soldats « Mon cousin ( ) il y dans mes troupes plusieurs filles et femmes desbauchées, et quil s’y commet des jurementz et blasphemes execrables, j’ay faict expedier une ordonnance pour réprimer severement ces crimes ( ) faire publier et observer exactement en mon armée de Catalongne, faisant faire par les prevostz et leurs officiers une diligente recherche, et punition exemplaire de tous ceux qui ozeront y contrevenir, de désirant rien davantage que d’empescher une si détestable licence qui peust destourner l’assistance et la benediction qu’il a plu a Dieu icy verser sur mes desseins, et sur mes armes ( ) Louis ». Au début du XVIIe siècle, La France et l’Espagne furent en guerre. La Catalogne se révolta contre les excès de l’armée impériale (guerre des Faucheurs). La catalogne se rapprocha de la France qui elle même profita de la situation pour conquérir la partie nord de la Catalogne et conclure en 1659 le traité des Pyrénées.

Thomas DE LEU (1560–1612), [Paris, circa 1602], Complete set of 7 copper engravings (condition and measurements vary, provided below for each)
- This extremely rare and magnificently engraved series of separately published views commemorates the victories of the military leader Philippe Emmanuel, the Duke of Mercœur, in battles against the Turks, fought in Hungary in 1601. The battles were waged as part of the ‘Long War’ (1593-1606) between the Habsburgs and the Ottomans. They were created by the prominent engraver Thomas de Leu, and published in Paris, likely shortly after Mercœur’s death in 1602. Philippe Emmanuel de Lorraine, the Duke of Mercœur was born in 1558 in Nomeny, Meurthe-et-Moselle, France. In 1589-90, Mercœur led the Catholic League in Brittany, backed by Philipp II of Spain, in opposition to the ascension of the Protestant Henri IV to the French throne. After the league was defeated, Mercœur was brought to an honorable surrender, although he would essentially become persona not grata in Henri IV’s France. Meanwhile, the Habsburg Empire was in the midst of the ‘Long War’ against the Ottomans. The conflict was, thus far, a brutal stalemate, yet there was an ever-present fear that Turks could make a breakthrough and overrun the Habsburgs if the frontiers were not robustly held down. In particular, the Austrians felt a need to shore up their position in Lower Hungary. Rudolf’s brother, Archduke Matthias, was charged with leading the campaign in this region. Mercœur felt dejected by his defeat in France and was eager to redeem himself, fighting for a new cause. In 1597, he travelled to Hungary at the head of an army of 3,000 men composed of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Polo, Marco
Caragoca: Por Angelo Tauano, 1601. [180] leaves. 12mo. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

MERCURIO, Girolamo
Venice, G. B. Ciotti, 1601. 3 parts in one vol, 4to (201 x 143 mm), pp [xl] 356 [recte 384], with engraved title, 6 engraved and 25 woodcut illustrations, and woodcut ornaments and printer's device (on title to third book); a few gatherings lightly browned, a fine copy in contemporary limp vellum, from the Colbert library with inscription 'Bibliothecae Colbertinae' on title, gilt arms of Aremberg family on upper cover.Second edition, revised (first 1595-6, impossibly rare), of the 'first Italian book on obstetrics. It is a work of importance for the study of the history of Caesarean section; in it Mercurio advocated the Caesarean operation in cases of contracted pelvis' (Garrison and Morton 6144). It is notable for containing the first illustration of Caesarean section, as well as an illustration and description of the 'Walcher position' and a description of bimanual version. 'The numerous illustrations are particularly striking, especially those depicting caesarean section, an operation on the living advocated by Mercurio for patients with a contracted pelvis. The uterine pictures are crude and uninformative, but those showing the postures favorable for delivery are remarkably vivid and realistic' (Cutter and Viets, A short history of midwifery, p 220).'La Commare is divided into three books, the first dealing with natural labour, care of the pregnant woman and of the new born child. The second book takes up abnormal presentations and their management, and the third section deals with various maladies which may occur to the parturient woman and the new born child.'

Petrarca, Francesco
Lugduni: Apud Samuelem Crispinum 8vo (16.8 cm; 6.625"). [16] ff., 96, 93–396, 381–683 (i.e., 703), [1 (blank)] p.. 1601 Famous as he is for his sonnets and influence on the development of the Italian language, to understand best why Petrarch (1304–74) is often labelled the father of Renaissance humanism, one must read and know his correspondence, his epistolarum. In this edition they are, as stated on the title-page, "Opus non paucis mendis repurgatum & multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C. quae ut à caeteris dignosci possint ex Epistola ad lectorem praefixa intelligetur." The reference to "multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C." refers to the 65 letters found in the library of Johannes Chalasius, of Nîmes, and => published here for the first time. The volume is in roman type and has the Crispinus printer's device on the title-page, woodcut initials, and headpieces. This is one of several issues of an edition differing only in the imprint and in slight variations of paging. 18th-century half "white" calf, gilt spine, raised bands, boards covered with red and white combed paper; edges rubbed; two spine compartments lighter than others, some captions shaved by binder's knife. Old institutional bookplate (no other markings); 19th-century pencilling and pen notes on front free endpaper. A clean and nice copy.
