      ex officina typographica Claudii Morelli, 1604. In-folio, pp. (8), 11, (65), 670, 1 b., 106, 1 b., 112, 1, frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero, bella marca tipografica raffigurante una fontana ornata zampillante con le Grazie nella sommità e circondata da festoni vegetali, testo in greco con latino a fronte, bei capilettera in xilografia. Bella legatura in pieno marocchino rosso, dorso a cinque nervi con titolo in oro, tagli rossi. I commentari di Casaubon e di Morellum iniziano con proprio occhietto. Restauro di 2,5 cm. alla cuffia superiore. Bell'esemplare, fresco e a buoni margini. Dióne Crisostomo. Letterato greco (n. Prusa, Bitinia, 40 - m. dopo il 114), una delle figure più notevoli della seconda Sofistica, detto Crisostomo (bocca d'oro) per la sua eloquenza. Il corpus delle orazioni dionee, così come ci è pervenuto, consiste di 80 discorsi (tre dei quali certamente spuri), raggruppabili secondo i temi. Le orazioni filosofiche sono quelle più rappresentate, spesso in forma dialogica (orr. I-X, XIII-XXVIII, XXX, XXXVI, XLII, LIV-LIVI, LXII-LXXIV, LXXVI-LXXX). Tra esse, interessanti per il loro contenuto di filosofia politica sono, tra le altre, le orazioni raggruppate come "Sulla regalità" (I-IV), indirizzate quasi sicuramente a Traiano: esse presentano molti spunti per la definizione di un'etica del governante e testimoniano l'accettazione e la ormai crescente partecipazione dei Greci nei confronti dei principi e della vita amministrativa dell'Impero Romano. Di stampo più propriamente cinico sono le orazioni Sulla tirannide, dette anche "diogeniche", che condannano l'atteggiamento tirannico del cattivo sovrano (alludendo forse a Domiziano). Dione è fondamentalmente un sofista erudito, la sua opera è interessante come documento delle varie tendenze della cultura ellenistica della sua età. (Treccani).

        La Contralesina, overo Ragionamenti, costitutioni, & lodi della splendidezza, del Pastor monopolitano, sotto l'insegna del Pignato Grasso. Con una comedia cavata dall'opera istessa, intitolata Le nozze d'Antilesina

      appresso Gio. Battista Ciotti sanese, In Venetia 1604 - In-8 (145x95 mm.), pp. (12), 132, (1). A carta K4, con proprio frontespizio e data 1603 inizia la "Nuova comedia cavata dall'opra della Contralesina del pastor Monopolitano. Intitolata le nozze d'Antilesina". Insegne tipografiche ai frontespizi. Legatura ottecentesca in mezza pelle rossa con titolo in oro al dorso. Prima edizione, in seguito ristampata anche con diverse titolazioni, di questa curiosa operetta in lode al ben mangiar e al bere. Anche la commedia in 5 atti "le nozze d'Antesilina", che principia a carta K4, è di puro argomento gastronomico, come facilmente si intende dagli evocativi nomi dei protagonisti ("Buon'appetito", Magna Bene", "Gusta Bocconi", etc). Essa si svolge come simpatica tenzone fra taccagni e splendidi, ambientata nel mezzogiorno d'Italia durante la dominazione spagnola. Ebbe anche oltralpe una certa fortuna, essendo stata stampata in francese. Bibliografia, Allacci, 214. Piantanida, III, 3503. Brunet, II, 1175. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Obra util y provechosa para toda suerte de personas: señaladamente para Principes y Cabeças de las Republicas, y para los que han de enseñar à otros. Diriga al Rey Don Philippe III nustra señor.

      en la calle de Samano. Vendese en casa de Antonio Cuello. ., Impresso en Valladolid por Iuan de Bostillo 1604 - First edition. Folio, pp. [28] 362 [32]. Text in three columns (Latin, Spanish and notes). Some waterstaining and light foxing and browning, f.f.e.p. and title-page rumpled, bound in contemporary stiffened vellum, darkened at spine and with a c.4cm tear on back cover, remains of ties. Owner's name scored from title-page. The only printed translation in Castilian from the central period of the Golden Age of Spanish literature, of Boethius's 'Consolation of Philosophy' . The last was issued in 1518, and the next in 1663. The translation is dedicated to the King, Philip III. Appropriately for a book that was used for philosophical and moral instruction throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance (being translated for example by Charlemagne's teacher Asser, by Alfred by Great, by Geoffrey Chaucer, and by Elizabeth I), this rendition is designed as a 'mirror for princes', with Book V replaced by treatises on fortitude and ambition. Boethius was an important figure in the background of European literature in this period of Cervantes and Lope de Vega, and abroad at this time, Shakespeare was certainly drawing on Boethian themes. One of the dedicatory poems is by the Licenciado Andres Ferrer de Ayala, possibly the son of a judicial official in Quito, Ecuador. López de Reta (d. 1614) was a Cistercian monk. Menendez y Palayo I 311-320. Palau 31224. Cf. also D. Briesemeister, 'The 'Consolatio Philosophiae' of Boethius in Medieval Spain', Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes 53 (1990) 61-70, see 66, n.26. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      sub signe Diligentiae ., Parisiis apud Ioannem Le Bouc è regione D. Hilarij 1604 - 8vo., 628 pages in all. Numbered as: pp. 8, [8]; 183 [1]; 60 (recte 52) [4] (blank), [14], [2] (blank); fols. 8 (i.e. 16 pages); pp. 50 [6]; fols. 29 (recte 28) [8] (i.e. 72 pages); fols. 59, [1] (blank) (i.e. 120 pages); pp. 10 [2] (colophon); fols. 40 (i.e. 80 pages). With general title and seven section-titles. Two woodcut diagrams. Eight-page universal table of philosophy. Light browning, flaw to one leaf (affecting printed marginal gloss on verso), some shaving of headlines. Thin slice of paper cut from along top of general title-page to remove earlier inscription; a poss. late 18th/early 19th-cent. shelfmark is added at same place on recto of leaf behind. Earlier shelfmark on title-page neatly crossed out. Bound in 17th-cent. polished calf, slightly rubbed and worn but good, gilt decoration and label of red morocco gilt to spine, edges mottled red. The rare first edition of this collection of guides to Scotist Aristotelian philosophy, produced in Paris, an important academic centre of Scotism (which, named after the Franciscan John Duns Scotus (1265/66-1308), was the rival school of philosophy to the predominant "Thomist" thought that followed St. Thomas Aquinas). A more common second edition of this title followed in 1605 - an examination has found that to be quite different in content. An interesting collection, showing the texts that Franciscan professors in Paris were using to teach philosophy, four pieces here are in first located printing. The volume contains: 1. Filippo Fabri, 'Tractatus de formalitatibus'. This is the first located edition and the earliest dated printed work by Fabri in the bibliography 'Bibliotheca Universa Franciscana' (Madrid, 1732-3, henceforth BUF), which lists it under Gothusius. [2. The final two chapters of this part (pp. 81-183) have the headlines 'Quaestio de attributis divinis' and 'Quaestio de ord. naturae in divinis'. These may be the work described on general title-page as 'Rada, de Attributis, & Ordine in divinis'. Author is likely to be Joannes de Rada (cf. BUF, which does not list title but shows work on similar subject matter of comparing Scotus to Aquinas. This is again the first located edition)]. 3. Costanzo Boccadifuoco, 'Subtilissima tractatio de primis et secundis intentionibus' (with 'De conficiendis syllogismis'). The first part here appears to have a prior printing history; we have not to date located a prior edition of the second, but it may be included with other work in prior editions. 4. François de Meyronnes, 'Terminorum theologalium, auraee[sic.] explanationes'. First located edition, listed in BUF under Gothusius. 5. St. Athanasius of Alexandria, 'De definitionibus theologicis'. 6. François Titelmans, 'Physicae [.] compendium'. With an eight-page 'table of universal philosophy' ('Tabula universam philosophiam continens') at end. 7. 'Dialectica prodidagmata ad adeundum Aristotelem magnopere necessaria' (no author given, but appears from internal evidence to be the title described on general title-page as 'Fontanus, de dialectica, et terminis philosophicis'. This work may well therefore be by the 16th-cent. Paris scholar Simon Fontanus, who was noted (cf. BUF) to have written a work on dialectics. 8. Antonio Paliettino (bishop of Brugnato), 'Methodus in grammaticam speculativam Doct. Subtiliss. Scoti'. This is the first located edition (cf. BUF, which lists it both under editor and author). 9. François Titelmans, 'Compendium dialectice'. 1605 edition only of this title in Bibliotheca Universa Franciscana. OCLC (01/15) shows copies of the 1604 collection at Dillingen, Munich, BNF, BM Lyon, Valladolid. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ostéologie, ou Histoire généralle des os du corps humain.

      Bordeaux, Simon Millanges, 1604. ____ Première édition. L'auteur était un chirurgien toulousain, lecteur à la faculté de Médecine de Toulouse. Si, comme toujours à son époque, il commente les textes d'Hippocrate et Galien, son ouvrage rapporte nombre de ses observations cliniques et le fruit de ses dissections : "Quand à nous, qui tâchons par nos dissections générales ou spéciales faire du bien au public ... nous sommes contents de prendre quelque homme mort criminel, d'autorité de justice." Il raconte aussi qu'il a pu étudier l'anatomie du crocodile à Montpellier : "sur un crocodile mort, que quelques hommes étrangers y avaient charrié avec des chats, chiens, oiseaux et tels autres animaux vifs et morts, pris aux Indes, fort étranges et différents de tous points aux nôtres. Ils trainaient cela par la France, et de ville en ville, gagnaient beaucoup d'argent." Nombreuses erreurs de pagination. Deux pages salies (pp. 272-273), petit manque sur une coupe et à une charnière, mais bel exemplaire. *-------* First edition. One copy in North America (NLM). In-8.

        Disquisitionum magicarum libri sex

      , 1604 "Complete. Rare. Very good condition. Very, very slight browning or foxing. Pages in surprisingly impressive condition. Folio format (large). Beautiful, tooled modern leather. Gorgeous binding. Can't find another early edition currently for sale."Extremely rare. "Martin Del Rio is now known as one of the leading demonologists of the early-modern era. Martin Delrio's Disquisitionum Magicarum Libri Sex first appeared in three volumes in Leuven in 1599 and 1600. It quickly became extraordinarily popular." (Wikipedia)"The most important, interesting, and comprehensive discussions of the occult sciences ever published. It deals not only with magic in all its forms, from the manipulation of angelic and demonic powers to straightforward conjuring and illusion, but also with witchcraft, alchemy, astrology, divination, prophecy, and possession by evil spirits. Nothing so panoramic had ever appeared before, and for the next one hundred and fifty years Disquisitionum Magicarum was the indispensable reference work on the subject." (Amazon)"The Disquisitionum Magicarum is THE 17th century manual of witch-hunting. It is the longest and most complete treatise ever written on the subject, embracing theoretical demonology to practical torture to get confessions and going through diverse occult subjects such as alchemy or divination. This is one of the best editions. With a beautiful engraved title. Text framed, on two columns. In a word, a massive and beautiful book that would make a perfect addition to any serious collection on witchcraft." (Wierus books)"Martin Del Rio, the polymath, humanist, former high ranking official of the government of the Spanish Netherlands in the Council of Brabant, and later a Jesuit, published his Disquisitionum Magicarum libri sex in 1599-1601 at Louvain. The work was first reprinted in 1608 and became the most recognized and influential justification for the prosecution of witches." Lea, Materials, II, 640-646; Clark, 535 as found in The Literature of Demonology and Witchcraft.

        Earth and Mars Drawing Signed on 3 x 5 card

      - Tombaugh draws the diameters of Earth and Mars to illustrate the planets' comparative sizes Earth's diameter is 7900 miles against Mars diameter of 4215 miles. On his Mars diagram, Tombaugh draws what would seem to be his understanding of the pitted Martian surface. His observations of Mars led him to conclude that Mars had been hit by asteroids causing observable craters due to the planet's proximity to the asteroid belt. The Mariner 4 space probe affirmed his hypotheses. The astronomer best known for identifying Pluto has signed, "Clyde W . Tombaugh" in a bold hand. A fine, visually instructive illustration. The asteroid 1604 Tombaugh discovered in 1931 is named after him. He discovered 14 asteroids, beginning with 2839 Annette in 1929, mostly as a byproduct of his search for Pluto and his further searches for other celestial objects. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Ecrit en faveur du baron d'Argenton, dont la femme voulait faire annuler le mariage sous prétexte d'impuissance. Rouillard soutint que le Baron "avoit consommé le mariage; non par les moyens ridicules qu'elle supposoit, mais par l'effect naturel de son sexe. Il demanda qu'on la visita ... et s'offrit au Congrès, pour demonstrer à l'espreuve qu'il avoit l'errection, intromission et ejaculation à luy controversées." La femme ayant refusé ces deux examens jugés choquants pour sa pudeur, Rouillard discourut amplement "de la fonction des testicules selon les philosophes... et les observations de l'anatomie, ne s'amusant point à des périphrases et à des locutions voilées... il se servit des termes de l'art... non sans quelques plaisanteries et traits gaillards" (selon Bayle dans son dictionnaire). ¶ Gay Amour, femmes I. p.468 "Ce factum d'avocat était autrefois regardé comme un chef-d'oeuvre du genre... Rouillard n'était pas seulement un habile avocat... très docte et très éloquent, c'était encore un poète, un historien, un philologue, dont les nombreux ouvrages furent très estimés... l'édition de 1603 et les suivantes, sont les plus complètes, et sous ce rapport, sont préférables aux premières." - Dupin I.p.327 n°1488 - Brunet IV 1417 (édit. orig. de 1600)."

        La fortification reduicte en art et demonstree (.). Premierement imprimée à Paris. Maintenant mis en lumiere par la vesve, & les deux fils de Theodore de Bry.

      - Francfort sur le Mein, De l'impression de Wolfg. Richter, 1604. In-4 (294 x 200 mm), plein vélin souple de l'époque, dos lisse titré à plume, (5), 77 p, (1) f. blanc, titre frontispice, illustrations sur bois dans le texte, 38 planches dépliantes gravées hors texte. Édition de Francfort, parue en même temps que la seconde édition parisienne (E.O., 1600) du premier traité français consacré à la fortification bastionnée, à son architecture, et à en exposer les principes. Ses travaux valurent à Jean Errard d’être désigné comme le "père de la fortification française". L’ouvrage est illustré d'un beau titre typographique dans un décor architectural gravé, aux armoiries de Francfort, de France et de l’imprimeur Richter, de 38 gravures sur cuivre sur doubles pages, de gravures dans le texte, lettrines ornementées, bandeaux et culs-de-lampe. Protestant, mathématicien et ingénieur militaire lorrain Jean Errard (Bar-le-Duc 1554 - Sedan 1610) avait d’abord été au service de Charles III de Lorraine (1580). Celui-ci s’étant rallié à la Ligue, Errard dut se réfugier dans la principauté calviniste de Sedan où il reçut le titre d’ingénieur du prince. En 1587, il fut envoyé à Jametz pour défendre la place. Son action lui valut d’être appelé par Henri IV qu’il accompagna dans les différentes campagnes de reconquête du royaume pour les opérations de siège et l’édification de bastions et fortifications sur les principes qu’il avait conçu. En récompense, Henri IV le nomma ingénieur du roi (1599). Errard avait modifié, entre autres, les fortifications de Doullens, Montreuil, Sedan et construit les citadelles d'Amiens et de Verdun. Véritable sommet sur le sujet, souvent cité par ses successeurs, ce traité et les travaux de Jean Errard ont servi de référence à tous les auteurs ultérieurs dont Vauban qui perfectionna son système. (Brunet, II, 1050. Millard, I, 68 [éd. 1620]. Katalog Berlin, 3518 [éd. 1622]. Gaber, ‘Jean Errard, ingénieur des fortifications du roi de France Henri IV’, p. 105-118.

Handsome copy. ---- VD 17 23:294904N; Ziegenfuss-Jung II, p.681. - TWO VERY RARE works ranging from medicine to cosmology, physics to philosophy. Taurellus (1547-1606) was professor of medicine at Basel and Altdorf and is best known for his works on medicine, ethics and philosophy. He attacked the pantheism of the Italian Aristotelians and created a Protestantly oriented philosophy, which sought to reconcile Luther's teachings about original sin and faith with philosophy, first in Philosophiae triumphus (1573). Taurellus identifies as main opponents Francesco Piccolomini, the Jesuit school of Coimbra, more generally the sixteenth-century Aristotelianism, and also Cesalpino. He "developed a method that made natural philosophy dependent on metaphysics and in turned demonized natural philosophers living in Catholic lands. Accordingly, Taurellus believed his philosophy successfully combined theology and the study of nature. Even though this goal was similar to that of Jesuits and other Catholic orders, Taurellus distinguished his philosophical views on God from the Coimbrans' commentators and other theologically minded philosophers. His attacks, however, were most vehement and relentless against lay Italian philosophers who held that natural philosophy should be independent from considerations of the divine. He found two Italians to be the most egregious: Francesco Piccolomini and Andrea Cesalpino, both of whom he saw as producing a naturalistic version of philosophy that overlooked key questions of faith. For Taurellus, the dangers of naturalism were remedied by a consideration of metaphysics that corresponded to theology.The most extensive analysis of Taurellus' work depicts him as shifting Ger-man philosophy from being dominated by studies of logic to studies of meta-physics, a change that became fully realized in the work of Leibniz, who indeed was familiar with Taurellus' writings."

Nach langen Reisen durch England und Deutschland begann er 1570 in seinem Geburtsorte die Praxis auszuüben, ging später nach Hamburg und wohnte danach in Emden (1586).

La Somme théologique de Thomas d'Aquin a acquis un prestige tout particulier au moment de la Contre-Réforme ; elle connait son avènement en tant que texte classique et scolastique, notamment auprès des Dominicains qui, depuis Cologne, ont imposé à l'ordre la lecture d'extraits de saint Thomas. Ex-libris manuscrit daté de 1613 sur la première garde blanche ; au titre, ex-libris manuscrit de l'abbaye Saint Grégoire de Munster ("Benedictinorum Sti. Gregorii Munsteriensis in Valle, Gregoriana Congrega[ti]onis SS. Vitoni et Hydulphi catalogo inscrtiptus"). Manque en tête du dos, peau fendue à plusieurs endroits au niveau des coupes, quelques trous de vers. Quelques petites galeries intérieures avec légère atteinte au texte, légère trace d'encre sur la tranche inférieure, quelques auréoles pâles. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Relaciones de Don Juan de Persia

      First edition of a rare and enigmatic text, with its origins in a Persian-language travel diary of Uruch Beg Bayat (1560-1605), and one of the first Persian travel accounts of Europe. Beg Bayat was a nobleman and secretary in the delegation sent to Europe in 1599 by the Safavid ruler Shah 'Abbas I at the urging of Sir Anthony Sherley (1565-1635), author of his own Persian narrative (Relation of His Travels into Persia, London, 1613). Beg converted to Catholicism in Valladolid in 1601, altered the target audience of his text from an Iranian court to a Spanish public, and took for himself the name "Don Juan of Persia." With the substantial help of his mentor, Alfonso Remón, he translated his text into Castilian, amplified its contents, and published it in 1604. All traces of the Persian "original" have been lost. The Relaciones is divided into three parts, the first two treating Persia, and the third focusing on the 1599-1602 European embassy of Shah 'Abbas. Part One presents details of Persian political structures, rituals, customs, and geography, adding to these a history of Islam up until the rise of the Ottoman state. Part Two focuses on the history of the Safavids from the household's beginnings through their latest conflicts with the Ottomans in 1578-1590. Don Juan then offers intriguing first-hand information about the 1599 journey of the Safavid embassy, numbering some 50 people, traveling via the Caspian Sea and Russia to meet with European heads of state. Nominally led by the chief ambassador, Husain Ali Beg, the embassy was conceived in a meeting between Shah 'Abbas and the English adventurer Sir Anthony Sherley, their objective being the opening of trade routes and, more pointedly, the cultivation of a European-Persian alliance against the Ottoman Empire. The embassy was not a success: Although received by the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph II, the former Duke of Bavaria Wilhelm II, Vincenzo Gonzaga of Mantua, and King Phillip III of Spain, the Safavids were denied a meeting by the Doge of Venice and plans to speak with the courts of France, England, Scotland and Poland were abandoned. Don Juan claims that Sherley sold off a fortune's worth of gifts intended by the Shah for foreign potentates. Several diplomats converted to Catholicism in Rome, more in Valladolid (perhaps a better alternative than returning to Persia to face the wrath of Shah 'Abbas). In 1605 Don Juan of Persia was killed in a street brawl in Valladolid. Palau, 223840. Cyrus Ghani, Iran and the West: A Critical Bibliography, p. 379.

        Det Ny Testamente paa Danske. Met Kongelig Mayestatz Frihed, udi 10. Aar icke at efftertrycke.

      Kiøbenhaffn, Henrich Waldkirch, 1604. 4to. (18,5 x 15,5 cm.). Samtidigt helldrbd. over træ. Med 4 ægte bind på ryg. Permer med rammer i blindtryk. To lukkebeslag af messing på forperm bevaret. I kanten af bagpermen småskader efter tab af beslag. Permer med lidt skrabespor. Lidt krakelering på ryg, men trods alt et ganske velbevaret samtidigt helbind. Titelbladet trykt i rød/sort med bred sammensat træstukken ramme. Fortale f 1-4, teksten f 5-322, register 5 unnummererede blade (komplet). Med stort træsnit til Matthæus samt talrige halvsides træsnit til Johannes Aabenbaring. Træsnittene efter Virgil Solis (ligesom i Fr. II's Bibel). Et læg lidt løst hvorved 5 blade lidt frønset i ydre margin. Titelblad lettere brunplettet, registerblade med brugsspor, ellers ganske få brunpletter. Biblen er sat i 2 spalter. Af denne 1604 udgave er kun ganske få eksemplarer bevaret, og sandsynligvis er dette eksemplar det eneste eksisterende komplette i privateje; således anføres i Thesaurus II "Bogen er meget sjælden; den er formodentlig slidt op ved læsning. Et ukomplet exp. findes i privateje. Træsnittene, som her illustrerer Johannes Aabenbaring er udfærdiget af den uidentificerede kunstner, som signerer sig "Ifl", og som bl.a. kendes fra illustrationerne til Gustav Adolfs Bibel.Efter Frederik II's Bibel udkom 1589 steg behovet herhjemme for en bibeludgave til hjemmebrug og som ikke var i det store folioformat som kirkebiblerne. Boghandler Hans Aalborg og møntmester Niels Schwabe fik 1603 et privilegium af kongen rækkende 10 år - det fremgår af underteksten på titelbladet - på at fremstille en bibel "udi en liden Format og stor Octav". Det eneste resultat af dette privilegium blev udgivelsen af "Det Ny Testamente" 1604 og trykt af Waldkirch - bogen som er tilbudt her - idet kongen trak privilegiet tilbage efter at Hans Poulsen Resen havde overbevist ham om, at der krævedes en helt ny oversæættelse, og dette fra grundteksten. 1604-udgaven er en gengivelse af teksten fra Frederik II's Bibel. Resultatet af Resens anstrængelser blev som bekendt "Resens Helbibel", hvoraf de to første bind udkom allerede i slutningen af 1605. Denne oversættelse går igen i Christian IV's Folio Bibel, 1633."Der findes to omfattende billedserier af Ifl og desuden en hel del kartuscherammer. De bedst kendte rammer er dem, vi første gang ser i Frederik ll's bibel 1589 omkring Solis-kopierne, men som også findes i mangfoldige senere værker. Billedserierne er en række bibelillustrationer i ret lille format, som synes påbegyndt midt i 1580erne, og hvoraf et af de senere billeder er dateret 1588. Den mest storslåede anvendelse fandt de i polyglotbiblen, som udgaves i Hamburg 1588-96, og som var tilegnet Christian IV. Bedst kendt i Skandinavien er de blevet som illustrationer i Gustav Adolfs bibel 1617-18. I Danmark fandt de anvendelse i bogtrykkeren Henrich Waldkirchs udgivelser, f. eks. Det Nye Testamente fra 1604. I Nordtyskland brugtes de endnu helt ned imod 1700."(Georg Garde i Fund og Forskning, Bd. 14. 1967).Bibl. Danica I, 45 - Rosenkilde "Europæiske Bibeltryk" 1952.Extremely rare edition, which is only known in very few copies. This is presumably the only complete copy on private hands.
