        Para que los indios Yanaconas no pueden ser detenidos en las Chacaras contra su voluntad

      1603 - N.d. [1603]. Lima. Antonio Ricardo. In folio (316 mm x 220 mm). 4 pp. Modern vellum. Moderate damp staining and edge wear, not affecting; extensive contemporary transmittal notes on final 2 pages. First edition. An extremely rare and early Peruvian imprint with a strong South American ethnological content: Velasco complains intensely on the poor treatment of South American Indians, claiming they are being held as captives, treated as slaves, and deprived of religious evangelization. The Yanaconas was a term used by the Spanish to refer to the Quechua Indians used in the “encomiendas”, or to refer to those employed in servitude; however it was a rather ambiguous term, which was also used pejoratively in other parts of South America. Originally, the Yanaconas [also Yanakuna or Yana] were the Indians from the Inca Empire under the employment of the Inca or the religious establishment, who previously worked the ayllu system; some were granted social status and could own land. The Yanaconas were far from slaves, which the imprint denounces in full outright criticism as to the way they were being treated as of late by the Spanish. The Yanaconas favored the Spanish from an early stage, and forged an alliance with them, even in detriment of their former system of hierarchy and Inca nobility, aiding the Spanish defeat the Incas. This imprint, besides being important from a historical point of view, and dealing with a rather scarcely treated subject (that of rightful treatment of Indians workers), is as well extremely rare and one of the earliest produces of the first South American printing house (number 19 in Medina´s La Imprenta en Lima). Extremely rare, we could only find one copy in OCLC, (Colegio de Mexico), and one other at JCB; no copies in Spain. Only one copy has appeared in the trade, offered by Rosenbach in 1948 for 285 u$s, which appears to be this one. Medina, Lima, 19. Vargas Ugarte, Impresos Peruanos, 30. Sabin, 98800.

        Historiae martyrum Gorcomiensium, maiori numero Fratrum Minorum, qui pro fide Catholica a perduellibus interfecti sunt anno Domini M.D. LXXII. Libri quatuor.

      Baltazaris Belleri, typographi iurati, sub Circino Aureo, Douai 1603 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. (xvi), 302. lacking last blank. Roman letter. Woodcut floriated initials, typographical head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, a few quires slightly browned (poor quality paper), insignificant worm trail at gutter over a few quires, rare marginal mark. A good, clean, copy in C19th three quarter vellum over speckled paper boards, a little soiled. Rare first edition of the best contemporary account of the massacre of nineteen Catholics by the ‘Watergeuzen’ or ‘Sea-beggars’ under the command of Willem II van der Marck, Lord of Lumey, at the town of Gorkum in 1572. Estius, born in Gorkum, was an important Counter Reformation theologian, who studied theology at Louvain, and became chancellor of Douai University where he worked closely with the English Recusants, Allen and Thomas Stapleton to edit the Bible of Douai, the standard Bible for English-speaking Catholics for three centuries. In 1569 William of Orange, who had openly placed himself at the head of the party of revolt in Holland, granted letters of marque to a number of vessels manned by crews of pirates drawn from all nationalities and by the end of 1569 there were 84 ‘Sea Beggar’ ships in action. At first they were content merely to plunder both by sea and land, carrying their booty to English ports to refit and replenish their stores. However, in 1572, Elizabeth I abruptly refused to admit the Sea Beggars to her harbours. Without refuge, they made a desperate attack on Brielle, which they seized by surprise, in the absence of the Spanish garrison, on 1 April 1572. Encouraged by this success, they took Flushing. The capture of these two towns prompted several nearby towns to declare for revolt, starting a chain reaction resulting in the majority of Holland joining in a general revolt. In June, Dortrecht and Gorkum fell into their hands and at Gorkum they captured nine Franciscans monks with two lay brothers from the same monastery, and also rounded up the parish priests. "After enduring much suffering and abuse in the prison at Gorkum (26 June-6 July) the first fifteen martyrs were transferred to Brielle. On their way to Dortrecht they were exhibited for money to the curious and arrived at Brielle 13 July. On the following day, Lumey, the commander of the Watergeuzen, caused the martyrs to be interrogated and ordered a sort of disputation. In the meantime the four other martyrs also arrived. It was exacted of each that he abandon his belief in the Blessed Sacrement and in papal supremacy. All remained firm in their faith. Meanwhile there came a letter from William of Orange which enjoined all those in authority to leave priests and religious unmolested. Nevertheless Lumey caused the martyrs to be hanged in the night of 9 July, in a turf shed amid cruel mutilations. Their beatification took place on 14 Nov., 1675, and their canonization on 29 June, 1865." Catholic Encyclopaedia. Estius was still studying at Louvain when his native town was captured. His father, brother and uncle were imprisoned. Both his father and brother escaped, but Nicolas Pieck, his uncle, Superior of the Franciscan convent at Gorcum, was amongst those put to death.

        Historie di quattro principali citta del mondo, Gerusalemme, Roma, Napoli e Venetia. Aggiuntoui vn compendio dell'istorie dell'Indie

      appresso Giorgio Greco, Venice 1603 - EXCELLENT EDITION WITH WOODCUT ASTRONOMICAL DIAGRAMS AND TABLES 4to. pp. (xvi), 449 (i.e.439) (i).Italic letter. Woodcut printer’s device on title, floriated woodcut initials woodcut and typographical headpieces, small woodcut astrological diagrams with several astrological tables, early monogram G.N.P. in blank margin of title price? 3.10 below. Light age yellowing, some very light browning in places, tiny tear in outer blank margin of title. A very good, clean copy in contemporary vellum over boards, all edges speckled red. Excellent edition of Zappullo’s description of the four principal cities of the world appended with a long and important description of the New World. "The first edition of a turn of the century, Counter -Reformation history of the three principal cities in the world - Jerusalem Rome and Naples, published in Naples in 1598 by Michele Zappullo, brings together Naples classical inheritance and the common view of successive epochs. Zappullo recounts world history as a succession of ages in the light of God’s intervention into human affairs. According to Zappullo, whereas Jerusalem was sacred to the Jews, . Rome was the seat of the gentile . Naples on the other hand proved to be the first city of Europe converted to Christianity and the refuge of Christianity during the persecution of the primitive church, and since then has remained steadfast in its ancient faith. . And with the passing of 1600 without an end to the world, Zappullo’s subsequent editions were able to expand his argument to the spread of Christianity to the Venetians and to the people of the New World." John A. Marino ‘Becoming Neapolitan: Citizen Culture in Baroque Naples’. Zappullo added the city of Venice and his description of the Indies to the second and subsequent editions; Venice due to its long history not subject to its enemies and the Indies as the hope and fulfillment of the spread of God’s word to all of mankind. The substantial account of the New World, pages 341-422, deal primarily with Central and South America, but also mentions Canada, Labrador, and the St. Lawrence River, and even Japan and India. There is a chapter on astronomy at the end. "Michele Zappullo, mourned the long reign of the Devil in the New World, with the consequent loss of millions of souls. Zappullo charged the Indians, both men and women, with being cruel, bestial, treacherous, senseless, ignorant, inconstant and thievish; .He offered graphic depictions of the various Aztec modes of human sacrifice, but did not indicate that these practices were limited to Mexico. Zappullo claimed that sodomy was so common among the Indians that men married other men, with the one who played the part of wife performing all the tasks usually assigned to women. In close imitation of Gomara, Zapullo scornfully depicted the poverty of Indian life. The Indians lacked all things necessary for human comfort, such as wheat, wine and the olive: mills, beasts of burden and iron. They had no weights, measures or numbers; no music or letters; indeed, none of the liberal arts." Benjamin Keen ‘The Aztec Image in Western Thought’. A very good copy of this most interesting work.

        Lettera del p. Alessandro Valignano. Visitatore della Compagnia di Giesu nel Giappone e nella Cina de' 10 d'Ottobre del 1599. (with) Sopplimento dell'Annua 1600

      Luigi Zannetti, Rome 1603 - FIRST EDITION. Two works in one, separate title page to each. 8vo. Pp. 102, (ii). A-E8, F12. (last blank). Roman letter, preface in Italic. Woodcut printer's device on both titles, floriated woodcut initials and woodcut tailpiece. Light age yellowing, foxing, oil stain to a few leaves. A perfectly acceptable copy in old vellum, recased. Rare first edition of these two hugely important letters from the Jesuit missions in Japan, sent in the crucial period after the death of Hideyoshi during the instability before the victory of Ieyasu at Sekigahara. This book comprises two letters, the first sent in 1599 by Valignano (pp. 3-40), the second in 1601 by Valentim Carvalho (pp. 41-102). The latter's preface explains that the Annual Letter for 1600 had not arrived, so this Sopplimento had been appended instead to Valignanos's letter for 1599. Both report on the changing political conditions in Japan following Hideyoshi's death in 1598. In his letter Valignano expressed his hopes that the political impasse in Japan would continue despite the tension that marked the relations of the different governing bodies. He recognised that the church would prosper under a politically divided regime. He described the political factions that emerged and made predictions about the future political situation. The political instability was a boon for the Jesuit missions and Valignano also announces that the mission had achieved 40,000 baptisms since February of that year. "Jesuit documentation is particularly useful for this turbulent period. The missionaries knew the country well enough to be able to express their personal opinions. Nevertheless, when explaining the evolution of the political situation in Japan to the outside world, they transmitted expectations that were very similar to those of the Japanese population in general. Thus, their accounts are particularly interesting and useful for our understanding of these decisive years that preceded the coming to power of the Tokugawa dynasty." Joao Paulo Oliveira e Costa, 'Tokugawa Ieyasu and the Christian Daimya During the Crisis of 1600.' The annual letters, apart from their political and religious information, also constituted the only up-to-date first-hand account of Japan, its cities, economy, industries, armed forces, geography, climate and people, that was then available in western Europe. "Valentim Carvalho's supplement to the Annual letter of 1600, published in 1603, reports Ieyasu's friendliness and favours towards the mission and judges that the mission is in as good a state as it was in 1586, before Hideyyoshi's anti-Christian edict" Donald F. Lach 'East Asia.' Both Carvalho and particularly Valignano were involved at the highest level of the interaction between the Japanese authorities and Jesuits, and provide extraordinary insight into trade negotiations, the shifting political situation, and the delicate balancing act required to ensure the safety of the missions.

        SLOVENIA – Heraldry]. [Coat of arms of David Pantaleon "Carniolang" from the Album Amicorum of Wilhelm Necker].

      - This well-executed work, heightened in gold and silver, is the coat of arms of David Panteleon "Carniolang" (meaning a native of Carniola, Inner Austria) and is dated August 5, 1603. Most importantly, to the side of the arms is written, in archaic colloquial Slovenian employing the Bohori?’s alphabet, "Jeli je Bug sa nas du nam bo super" (roughly translated: ‘If God is with us we will be great’). Importantly, this motto represents an early surviving example of the manuscript use of the Slovenian language following Bohori?'s alphabet. These precepts were first codified by the Protestant author Adam Bohori? (c.?1520 – 1598) in his book Articae Horulae (1584), which is considered to be the first grammar book of the Slovenian language. Slovenian had been used extensively for almost thirty years before Bohori?’s work by several Slovene Protestant authors. It was most notably employed by Jurij Dalmatin (c.?1547 – 1589) when he published the first complete Slovenian translation of the bible (1584). David Pantaleon was born into a learned and well-connected Protestant family that had established themselves as part of the bourgeoisie in Ljubljana. His father, Melchior Pantaleon, hailed from Styria, born in a village near Ptuj, but moved to Ljubljana in his youth. Melchior studied in Tübingen and worked in Strasbourg, before returning to Ljubljana in 1576. He rose to become the city secretary and a councilor and maintained close connections with many of the major Slovenian Protestants of the period. This circle included Adam Bohori? and Jurij Dalmatin. Melchior Pantaleon is mentioned together with Bohori? and Dalmatin in the letters of the most famous Slovenian Protestant, Primoz Trubar (1508-1586), who published the first two books written in the Slovenian language in Tübingen in 1550 (Theodor Elze, Primus Trubers Briefe, mit den dazu geho?rigen Schriftstu?cken, pp. 544 and 586). David Pantaleon was raised in this circle. He attended the Protestant gymnasium in Ljubljana where Adam Bohori? served as dean between 1565 and 1582 and 1595 and 1598. Unusually, the language of instruction for the introductory classes was Slovenian. Unfortunately, the school was closed in 1598 by the religious zealot Archduke Ferdinand III and Bohori? was compelled to leave the country. In 1592, David enrolled at the University in Tübingen, then a great centre of Protestant learning. He subsequently travelled to other cities and spent some time at the University of Dole, France, where he presented the coat of arms to Wilhelm Necker in 1602. He returned to Ljubljana and became the city secretary, the same post previously held by his father. However, David Pantaleon, like many other prominent Protestants in Inner Austria, was caught in the crosshairs of Ferdinand III’s Counterreformation. He ran into trouble with the authorities and it became clear that his days in Ljubljana were numbered. In 1616, he was relieved of his government post and the following year, David and his two brothers, Jakob and Joseph, and their families went into exile, never to return to their native land. David Pantaleon’s experiences were typical of the Protestant bourgeoisie in Inner Austria. During the height of Ferdinand III’s (who became Holy Roman Emperor in 1619, ruling as Ferdinand II) Counterreformation many educated people, including most of the nobility, left the country, taking their intellectual property with them. This had a devastating effect on the region’s economy and culture. It is estimated that about 800 private libraries were moved out of Inner Austria during this period. The present coat of arms is a rare and important artifact of South Slavic culture, due to the presence of a passage in vernacular Slovenian, written by a man who had direct contact with the contemporary framers of the language. Surviving manuscript examples of written Slovenian from the late 16th and the beginning of the 17th Century are very rare, and so this coat of arms is truly significant. Refer

Magistro in Theologia, etc.?, also Priester der Diözese Lüttich (Leodicum, Leodium) : i.e. Gerhard Vossius (Vosquens; um 1550?1609 Lüttich), Apostolischer Protonotar u. Propst zu Tongern [i.e. Tongere od. Tongeren, in der belgischen Provinz Limburg]. ?Sammelte auf einer italienischen Reise [.] handschriftliches Material, edierte einzelne Schriften von Chrysostomus, Theodoret (beide in griechisch und lateinisch) und Bernhard von Clairvaux, ferner in lateinischer Übersetzung die Werke Ephräms des Syrers (3 Bde. Rom 1589/98 u.ö.), griechisch und lateinisch die Werke Gregors des Wundertäters (Mainz 1604) u. Gesta monumenta Gregorii IX (Rom 1586).? (M. Buchberger, Hsg., Lex. f. Theol. u. Kirche, 10, 1938, sp. 700). Vgl. auch Ladvocat 3, 1764: ?Prévôt de Tongres, de la même Famille [.], se rendit habile dans les Langues grecque & latine. Il devint Docteur en Théologie & Protonotaire apostolique, passa plusieures années à Rome [.], & où il s?appliqua à lire & à traduire les Ouvrages Manuscrits des Saints Pères, entr?autres Théodoret, St. Grégoire Thaumat[urgus; i.e. der Wundertäter], et St. Ephrem.? (op. cit. p. 539). ?? Ephräm od. auch Afrem der Syrer (ca. 306?373), heiliger Kirchenlehrer, ist seinerseits auch nicht zu verwechseln mit dem theologisch v.a. für die Orthodoxie relevanteren, einige Generationen jüngeren Ephraem od.

      1603 - Antwerp: Jan Baptist Vrients, 1603, Latin edition. Original colour. 350 x 500mm. A fine example. An early map of the East Indies, detailing India, China and Japan, Indochina and Indonesia. The Spice Islands are shown out of proportion, highlighting their importance. Top right, near an unrecognisable depiction of Japan, is the west coast of America; bottom right is a huge 'New Guinea; and bottom centre is the enigmatic 'Beach, pars continentis Australis'. The map has a decorative strapwork title, a banner containing a description of the Moluccas, and vignettes of mermaids and sea monsters attacking a galleon. The map was published in the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', regarded as the first atlas in the modern sense of the word, with the maps designed to fit the book. VAN DEN BROECKE: 166; WALTER: 11d.

His father came from Crete to Italy to teach Greek. Aemilius was appointed professor of Greek at the University of Heidelberg in 1596. He published a great number of works, translations, commentaries and editions of Aristophanes, Thucydides, Xenophon, Dionysius Halicarnessensis, Homer. He even found time to do lexicographic work. In 1603 he published a Dictionarium Ionicum graecolatinum and a Dictionarium Doricum graecolatinum, and in 1606 a lexicon Pindaricum. No wonder that his works show signs of haste.

Interamente illustrato da 150 incisioni di medaglie e monete. Una piccola parte del frontespizio (bianca) è stata asportata per cancellare una firma di appartenenza. Pagine un po' ingiallite ma ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione, raro. Brunet, III, 370 Levin Hulsius o Levinus Hlsius, secondo la trascrizione latina, nacque nelle Fiandre nel 1546. Iniziò la sua carriera come costruttore di strumenti scientifici cimentandosi anche come stampatore delle sue stesse opere. Pubblicò infatti esaurienti trattati sulla costruzione di strumenti geometrici, oltre a celebri opere di linguistica e lessicografia, una per tutte il celebre Dizionario Francese-Tedesco- Tedesco-Francese. Di fede Calvinista dovette abbandonare le Fiandre nel 1584, da qui si trasferì prima ad Heidelberg dove avviò una scuola e più tardi nel 1590 si spostò a Norimberga dove i suoi successi ebbero effettivo inizio. Hulsius fu dapprima indìsegnante di lingue e pubblico notaio, ma soprattutto fu traduttore e autore di un impressionante numero di opere, per altro tutte assai approfondite, che stampava e vendeva egli stesso. E' celebre anche per la traduzione in tedesco e la pubblicazione di numerosi volumi sulle prime esplorazioni geografiche, attività che proseguì per tutta la vita, pubblicando ben 26 titoli tra il 1598 e il 1650. Pubblicò sempre da se un trattato sull'uso del quadrante e naturalmente queste biografie degli Imperatori Romani illustrate dalle monete antiche, che per la maggior parte provenivano dalla sua collezione. Morì a Francoforte nel 1606. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Relaciones universales del mundo ... primera y segunda parte

      Valladolid: Impresso por los herederos de Diego Fernandez de Cordoua Folio (27 cm; 10.5"). [4], 207, 110 ff. (without final blank and without the maps).. 1603?-1599 Botero (1540?-1617) was an Italian thinker, priest, poet, and diplomat, and after 1580 an expelled Jesuit. His Relaciones universales del mondo, originally published 1594 to 1595 in Italian, tells of the "universal church" (i.e., Catholicism) in various parts of the world, including America, the Old World, India, the circum-Mediterranean, Africa, China, the Philippines, Japan, and Southeast Asia, but also England, Scotland, Ireland, and "the realm of Prester John." More than a few scholars view this as one of the first demographic studies. This first edition, second issue in Spanish is the translation of Diego de Aguiar. It is composed of the sheets of first edition of 1600?-1599 with a new title-page. Printed in roman type, double-column format, it offers a liberal sprinkling of large woodcut initials, some of which are historiated. Provenance: 19th-century private ownership stamp on verso of title-leaf; bookplate of the John Carter Brown Library (with small release stamp) on the front pastedown. 18th-century mottled sheep, raised bands, gilt spine extra; spine gorgeously bright and covers with some abrasions. Title-page and final leaf with foremargins excised and the leaves mounted; first folio 113 with short tears repaired with with cello tape now darkened. Occasional foxing and the other odd spot or stain only; all edges red and a blue ribbon placemarker. A text volume only, this lacks the maps and is priced accordingly; it is an important and famous work with a good provenance in an otherwise very handsome copy, for the reader.

      ITALIANO Legatura coeva rimontata e restaurata, piccole integrazioni agli angoli e ai bordi superiori del piatto posteriore, evidenti integrazioni al dorso con titolo manoscritto; 2 ex - libris Piergiorgio Borio. [2] cc.nn., 184 pp.; 1 c.b. a p. 42. I rara edizione. L'autore, celebre medico, anatomista e chirurgo, diede vita ad una scuola di famosi medici e anatomisti tra cui Giulio Cesare Casseri, Adriaan van den Spieghel, Olaus Wormius, Caspar Bartholin e il più celebre di tutti, William Harvey, scopritore della circolazione del sangue. Fabrizio d'Acquapendente diede numerosi contributi originali e fondamentali in anatomia, embriologia, anatomia comparata. Egli descrisse le valvole delle vene (De venarum ostiolis del 1603), offrendo un contributo fondamentale al problema della circolazione sanguigna, poi definito dall'Harvey. Apportò un notevole sviluppo allo studio dell'occhio, dell'orecchio (De visione voce auditu) e del meccanismo della voce (De locutione). Nel "De Tumoribus" analizzò oltre ai tumori, di cui viene trattata anche la cura, l'herpes, i vari tipi di ernie, la cancrena, i bubboni e altre infezioni e patologie. Originali le sue ricerche embriologiche descritte nel "De formato foetu" del 1600. Piccolissimi forellini di tarlo alle prime carte; alla p.9 bordo laterale superiore rifilato e integrato da restauro senza perdita di testo; diffuse piccole fioriture su tutto il volume.

      Venice: apud Io. Baptistam Ciottum, 1603. Later printing. Clavius, Christophorus. In sphaeram Ioannis de Sacro Bosco commentarius. 4to. [32], 483, [1] pp. Woodcut text illustrations. Limp vellum c. 1603. Minor foxing and toning, but very good. Seventh edition. Clavius (1538-1612), a member of the Jesuit order, was one of the most respected astronomers in Europe. He was the main architect of the Gregorian calendar (which we use today), and his astronomical textbooks were widely used for over fifty years. His commentary on the "Sphaera" of Sacrobosco, first published in 1570, demonstrates his adherence to the geocentric model of the universe.

Contemporary vellum over pasteboard, edges blue-stained (worn and soiled, backstrip defective). Provenance: Capuchins of Sion, 18th-century inscription on title; Redemptorist Congregation of Trier, inkstamp, shelfmark label dated 1928 with deaccession stamp.*** Two treatises of spiritual edification adapted from the Spanish by the indefatigable Counter-Reformation translator and compiler Aegidius Albertinus, bound with a legal-historical treatise on social revolts. I. FIRST EDITION. Medina's Libro de la verdad (1555) is a dialogue between Man and Truth (a virgin), who instructs her interlocutor in the Ars moriendi by preaching contemptus mundi, dwelling on the illusoriness of earthly goods in order to prepare the man/reader for death and the Last Judgment. Of the three parts of Medina's original work, Albertinus' translation includes all of part I and extracts from parts II and III. He added three chapters, on confession and on honoring the saints. The Spanish original was given to Albertinus by the well-traveled Ritter Sebastian von Haunsperg (who later built Schloss Schwindegg in Bavaria), to whom Albertinus dedicated the work, including in his dedication a detailed account of Von Haunsperg?'s voyage to Palestine. II. ONLY EDITION of a spiritual guide for the wealthy, Albertinus' version of a portion (14 of the 40 chapters) of the Quinta parte del abecedario espiritual (Burgos 1542) by the Andalusian mystic Francisco de Osuna. Although the title states that the work was ?"durch Herrn Franciscum de Ossuna in Hispanischer Sprachen componiert, und durch Aegidium Albertinum... verteutscht,?" over half of the text is either Albertinus' own or a well-digested compendium of sources altered beyond recognition.Typically, many of the passages identifiably derived from Osuna were shortened or rearranged by the translator, in language often more vivid than that of the original text (Van Gemert, p. 407). Midway through the work (ff. 64r-74v) is what appears to be a fragment of a school drama, a dialogue between a rich glutton (Prasser) and poor Lazarus (Lazaro). A companion edition was Albertinus' consolation book for the poor, the Trost der armen (1602), translated from the same work by Osuna, the separate publication being the publisher's wish (van Gemert, p. 196). III. First German edition of a historical and legal treatise on revolts and rebellions, the author's own vernacular translation of his Tractatus de seditione (Vienna 1599). An Austrian jurist, Dalner matriculated from the University of Tübingen in 1585. His work was no doubt prompted by the peasant uprisings in Austria in 1595-97 (described on pp. 14-16). Dalner provides an historical survey of notorious riots and rebellions, including most of the 16th-century Bauernkriege, and uses Biblical examples for his detailed legal analysis, discussing the assignment of culpability, appropriate punishments, etc. All three editions are rare, with OCLC listing a single US copy of the Buech der warheit (Yale), and none of the other two (one copy of Dalner's Latin edition [Newberry]).

        Annales Sive Commentarii De Origine Et Statu Antiquissimae Civitatis Augustae Treverorum. Authore W.K. Iuliacensi J.V. Doctore & Syndico Treverensi, ex ipsis Archivis fideliter conscripti. Quae in iis ab anno a creatione Mundi 1966. usque ad nostram aetatem contineantur...

      Biponti [Zweibrücken], Wittelius 1603.. Folio (30 x 20 cm). 273 Seiten, [1] weißes Blatt. Etwas späteres Ganzpergament mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Einbandbezug am Rücken und dem Vorderdeckel beschädigt. Lederschließbändchen nur fragmentarisch vorhanden. Durchgehend gebräunt, teils stärker. Nur vereinzelt mit handschriftlichen Anmerkungen. Titelblatt mit mehreren alten, handschriftlichen Besitzvermerken.. VD17 23:232203P. KTJ 1963, S. 20-31 (Laufner). Unter den Besitzeinträgen sind Seraphinus Henolt und der Mainzer Kanzler Franz Philipp Faust lesbar. Hauptwerk des ersten Trierer Stadthistorikers und der Versuch, die Reichsunmittelbarkeit der Stadt zu beweisen. Dr. Wilhelm Kyriander (ca. 1535-1579/80) war seit 1569 zehn Jahre in Diensten der Stadt Trier, ihr Syndikus und Stadthistoriker. 1565 hatte die Stadt wie schon 1364 die volle städtische Autonomie von Ihrem geistlichen Landesherrn, dem Kurfürsten, beansprucht, den Prozeß vor dem Reichskammergericht am 18. Dezember 1566 aber verloren. Sie setzte jedoch alles daran in einem zwölfjährigen "Papierkrieg in Form eines Monsterprozesses" (Laufner) die Reichsunmittelbarkeit durchzusetzen und engagierte einen geschulten Juristen, dessen Jahressalär mehr als das der beiden Bürgermeister und des Stadtschreibers zusammen betrug. Am 22. April 1571 erhielt der Protestant Kyriander vom städtischen Magistrat den Auftrag zur "Vollfürung unser schwebenden Rechtsverteidigung... ein Cronicon ufzurichten und die verlauffene Zeit und Mutationes, was sich bei Trier jederzeit zugetragen und geendert, zusammenzutragen und zu beschreiben". Die Obrigkeit der Stadt Köln ließ auf Betreiben des Trierer Erzbischofs die dort 1576 anonym erschienene erste Auflage noch während der Auslieferung beschlagnahmen und vernichten. "Aus Haß gegen den Trierer Erzbischof ließ Herzog Johann von Zweibrücken die Annalen neuerdings drucken und verbreiten" (Kentenich, Trier, S. 412f.). Erstmals 1603 - wie hier vorliegend - bis 1625 erschienen dann insgesamt vier Auflagen. Obwohl die "Früchte seines außergewöhnlichen Fleißes... die Nachwelt nicht nur erstaunen" lassen (Laufner), schlug das Unternehmen Reichsunmittelbarkeit fehl. So blieb es in Trier beim Alten und Goethe schrieb 1792 aus "einem alten Pfaffennest, das in einer angenehmen Gegend liegt".
