        Liber sextus decretalium d. Bonifacii papae VIII. Clementis papae V. constitutiones. Extravagantes tùm viginti d. Ioannis papae XXII. tùm communes. Haec omnia cum suis glossis suae integritati restituta, et ad exemplar romanum diligenter recognita

      Venetiis: Sub signo Aquilae renovantis Folio. [4] ff., 948, 384, 396 numb. col., [12] ff., lacking a blank.. 1604 This is a collection of the decretals of Boniface VIII, born Benedict Gaetani (ca. 1235?-1303, pope from 1294). Boniface was a distinguished canonist and defender of the rights of the papacy. He did much to organize canon law, compiling the decrees of his predecessors into five books, to which he added his own Liber Sextus ("sixth book"). To Boniface's own decretals were later appended the Constitutiones of Boniface's immediate successor, Clement V (reigned 1305?-14), the Extravagantes of John XXII (reigned 1316?-1334), and finally, in 1500?-1503, the Extravagantes Communes. The works in this volume form the third of three volumes—together with the Decretum of Gratianus and the Decretales of Gregory IX—printed by the Socios Aquilae Renovantis in 1604 as part of a complete set of the Corpus Juris Canonici or code of canon law. In this edition the legal text is surrounded by commentary, to which supplementary sidenotes have been added. It is printed with an ornate, very large woodcut printer's device on the title-page, and historiated woodcut initials. Half vellum over green paper with a brown leatherette title label. Title-page has a tear from the base of the page into the imprint information, repaired on the verso with paper. Inked marginalia in one place, fol. *2r. Occasional spots of foxing and staining, most noticeably on the title-page and first few leaves.

        Itinerarium, das ist, Reisebüchlein.

      (Colophon: printed in Eißleben, Saxony, [by Jacob Gaubisch]), 1604.. Small 8vo (15 x 10 cm). Title-page in red and black with a border built up from cast arabesque fleurons, all other pages in a frame of rules, 9 woodcut illustrations in the text (about 3.5 x 5 cm), 3 woodcut tailpieces (plus repeats), numerous decorated gothic initials (2 series), numerous decorations built up from cast arabesque fleurons. Set in fraktur types with passages in rotunda and incidental roman and italic.[16], 229, [9], [2 blank] pp. Recased in a stiff vellum wrapper made from a bifolium out of a 16th-century liturgical manuscript (in a textura hand with red and blue "Lombardic" uncial initials and "ysaye" (Isaiah) in red), sewn on 2 leather straps laced through the wrappers and with remnants of straps to hold the book closed, cut flush with the book block at the head and foot, but with flaps folded over the fore-edge.. Rare first edition of a German verse account of the travels of Mary, Joseph and especially Jesus, including descriptions of Palestine and Jerusalem, with 9 woodcut illustrations. Eger (1534-1613), originally from Bischofswerder (now Biskupiec, Poland), was a minister of the Lutheran church in Colmnitz, Saxony. The book does not name its printer, but the colophon explicitly says it was "gedruckt zu Eißleben" in 1604. Gaubisch appears to have been the only printer active at that date in Eißleben, best known as the birthplace of Martin Luther and now called Lutherstadt Eisleben. We have found one of the woodcut tailpieces in a book from the same year that explicitly says it was printed by Gaubisch. Some books that say they were printed by Gaubisch in Eißleben also say "typis" Jacob Grosse, who was in Leipzig. A second edition appeared at Leipzig in 1611. With a 7-line German inscription in a gothic hand facing the title-page, a 1977 owner's inscription of "HS" in Hamburg on the paste-down, and a modern newspaper clipping pasted in at the end. Somewhat browned and with a small tear repaired, slightly affecting a shoulder note, but otherwise in good condition, with only a few marginal chips. Binding somewhat worn and with restorations. Rare Lutheran religious work in verse, with descriptions of Palestine and Jerusalem. - VD 17, 3:310664U (nur 2 Exemplare in Halle und Wolfenbüttel, letzteres unvollständig). - Graesse II, 464. - Nicht bei Tobler und Röhricht.

      Amsterdam: [ca. 1604]. Oblong 4to (151 x 190 mm). [3] ff., 80; 24 pp. Two parts, separately titled and paginated but continuously signed (A4 (-A4 blank) B-L4; [M] N-O4). Printed in two columns, in civilité and occasionally roman types. Both titles with a large engraved scene of a musical banquet after David Vinckboons, signed DVB inv., part I illustrated with nine column-width unsigned engravings printed from seven copperplates; woodcut headpiece, typographic ornamental initials. Contemporary vellum over pasteboards, slits for two fore-edge ties, edges unevenly stained green (recased).*** the first dutch luxury songbook, second edition of Part 1, with a reissue of the first edition sheets of Part 2. Printed in visually diverting civilité types, illustrated with a superb title engraving of well-dressed Dutch youth whiling away a langorous summer afternoon music-making around the lunch table, and with further engravings suggestive of life in the love lane, this collection of amorous songs showed off the literary talents of the new generation of well-off Amsterdam burghers. Its format and content were apparently an innovation of the publisher, whose bet paid off (or would have had he lived longer) as the work?'s popularity necessitated reprints and inspired emulators, including . Setting itself apart from earlier songbooks, which were roughly printed in small octavo formats and illustrated, if at all, with woodcuts, Vlacq?'s songbook and its later imitators were ?"generally quarto size and contained first-rate engravings, a variety of fonts, fanciful titles, and sometimes included musical notations, or poems other than just songs. These lavish songbooks were intended for the prosperous young people whose numbers were growing in early seventeenth-century Amsterdam. The first example of this new type is Den Nieuwen Lusthof (The New Pleasure Garden), published in Amsterdam in 1602, and which was followed by various others?" (Grijp). ?"Songbooks were used on various occasions: at parties, on birthdays and at weddings. They were an integral part of the erotically tinted lives of well-off young people of marriageable age who were looking for a partner?" (I. M. Veldman, Profit and PLeasure, Print Books by Crispijn de Passe [2001], p. 29). Part 1 contains 63 songs and ballads, 24 entremets or short poems, 2 madrigals and one sonnet, whose melodies are identified by the titles of older popular songs, and whose authors are unidentified other than through mottoes at the end of each song or poem. Several consist of dialogues between lovers and girlfriends (vryer [modern vrijer] and vryster [vrijster]). Part 2, announcing ?"A Wedding Banquet / ADORNED WITH FOURTEEN SMALL / Songs?" (a fine example of the disjunction between typography and content typical of Netherlandish and Flemish title-pages of this period), contains in fact about 20 songs, most signed ?"N.S.V.?" The engraved illustrations in the text, some printed slightly awry, and most rather poorly inked, show scenes of courtship and flirtation between richly attired couples in an eternal summer. They appear to be in a different hand from that of the unidentified engraver who executed the marvelous large title engraving after the painter, draughtsman and engraver David Vinckboons (1576-1633), the first known engraving bearing his signature (La Fontaine-Verwey, p. 264), showing a group of ten elegant men and women (plus one small figure, evidently a child, and a dog) seated around a long table under a leafy bower. With her back to the viewer, a lady plays a harpsichord with an exquisitely painted lid, two gentleman strum lutes, two other women sing from oblong songbooks, servants bring fruit and pour wine, and the rest, dog included, listen or sing along. According to the Short-Title Catalogue Netherlands, this is the only known book with the imprint of Hans Matthysz?'s widow. Matthysz published the first edition in 1602. The present edition contains a revised Part 1 with a reissue of the first edition sheets of Part 2. A third edition, enlarged and titled Den nieuwen verbeterde Lust-hof, was printed by Dirck Pietersz. Pers in Amsterdam in 1607; it was reprinted ca. 1610. In spite of the literary and artistic significance of this collection, few copies have survived and there appear to be no copies in American libraries of either of the first Matthysz editions. OCLC and STCN together locate 3 copies of the 1602 edition, all in the Netherlands. Of the present edition there are copies at The Hague and the Univ. of Groningen. The third edition of 1607 is held by the British Library and Trinity College; and of the 4th edition I locate copies at NYPL, Rice University, Utrecht and Glasgow.

        The Naturall and Morall Historie of the East and West Indies. Intreating of the remarkeable things of heaven, of the elements, mettalls, plants and beasts which are proper to that country: together with the manners, ceremonies, lawes, governements, and warres of the Indians

      Val: Sims for Edward Blount and William Aspley, London 1604 - 7 1/8 x 5 1/2 inches. [6],590,[14]pp. Scattered early marginalia. 17th or early 18th century calf, covers bordered in gilt and with an armorial stamp in gilt on the covers, expertly rebacked to style, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt Provenance: Shipwright's Company of London (armorial gilt stamp) First English edition of a famous early work on American Indians. First English-language edition of this most important source book on the Indians of Mexico and Peru, and on the natural history of South America, following the Seville 1590 first edition. A Jesuit father, Acosta spent seventeen years in American missions in Mexico and Peru between 1571 and 1588. While in Peru he was instrumental in founding the printing press there, and its first productions in 1585 were prepared by him. In addition to being an accomplished linguist, Acosta was one of the first to formulate a systemic theory of anthropology, suggesting a classification of different peoples into different types, which foreshadowed later ideas of social evolution. "As a natural historian, Acosta surpassed Oviedo. He took a philosophical approach to natural phenomena, searching for causes and effects in a spirit of critical inquiry.The subject of his moral history is pre-Columbian civilizations, particularly the Aztecs and the Incas, whose religions, customs, and governments he admiringly compares" (Delgado-Gomez). "The most convincing, detailed and reliable account of the riches and new things of America. He provided great detail in his descriptions of sailing directions, mineral wealth, trading commodities, Indian history, etc. Consequently his work operated more strongly than any other in opening the eyes of the rest of Europe to the great wealth that Spain was drawing from America" (Streeter). Acosta was a keen observer of New World plants. He "mentions most of the plants used in Peru as foodstuffs or as medicinals, and even the ornamentals. He remarks that the Indians loved flowers just for their beauty" (Shaw). There is also a detailed discussion of plants exported to the Old World, such as ginger, and the use of coca in Peru.

A 17x11 cm. section of the title page, which includes the printer's device, has been excised, the leaf neatly repaired; top edge lightly trimmed, boards and spine rubbed with scuffing to the top edges, otherwise very clean with occasional cross-references penciled in the margins, binding tight; a very nice copy.

        Handschrift in deutscher Sprache: "Alte Landesordnung: Anno 1535: die Mitwoch nach dem Ersten Sontage in der Fasten zue Znaim von allen vier Ständen des Marggrafthums Mähren im Allgemeinen Landtage bey Anwesenheit Ihrer Maj. Königs Ferdinandi ... auffgesuchet unnd beschrieben".

      Böhmen bzw. Mähren, wohl Mitte des 17. Jh... circa 31 x 21 cm. 119 num., 8 unnum. Blatt Halb-Pergament d. Zt.. Umfangreiche Handschrift in gleichmäßiger Kanzleikursive der im Jahr 1604 revidierten alten ersten mährischen Landesordnung, die von König Ferdinand I. (Kaiser 1558-1564) ursprünglich auf dem Landtag zu Znaim 1535 verabschiedet worden war. Das vorliegende Manuskript enthält auch die Fortschreibungen und Änderungen bis 1604, die erst unter Ferdinand II. im Jahre 1628 als "Verneuerte Landesordnung" veröffentlicht wurden. Am Ende des Haupttextes wird ein Drucker genannt, Georg Händel aus Olmütz (vgl. Reske 760), bei dem die Landesordnung 1604 im Druck erschien - tatsächlich jedoch nur in tschechischer Sprache. Es dürfte sich hier also um eine wohl sonst unveröffentlichte deutsche Übersetzung dieser tschechischen Druckfassung handeln. Die Handschrift stammt aus der Bibliothek des Christoph Wenzel Graf von Nostitz (1643-1712; mit dessen großem gestochenen Wappenexlibris). Er war kaiserlicher Geheimrat und Gesandter und wurde 1675 in den böhmischen Reichsgrafenstand erhoben. Es ist nicht ersichtlich, ob der Text erst für ihn zusammengestellt wurde, oder ob dieser bereits vor seiner Geburt entstand und ihm später übergeben wurde. Ein Vergleich mit der tschechischen Druckfassung auf Abweichungen hin wäre sicher lohnend. - Ein weisses Vorblatt trägt eine Signatur "HM..von Friedberg" (?). - Einband berieben und wurmstichig, innen gut erhalten, gering gebräunt.

        Historiarum sui Temporis Partis Primae Libri VI

      Ambrosium & Hieronymum Drouart, 1604. Second Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. 5 volumes bound in 9 in contemporary calf. Worn at the edges and corners, spines a little dry, but intact and attractive overall. Volume 1 with a single title page (some copies were apparently bound with a second title page noting Estienne, the publisher of the Folio edition). Old bookplates inside covers, ownership marks and stamps to titles and first pages, occasionally trimmed a little close on the top edge, just touching the running title, scattered minor pencil marks, light dampstain to the corners of a section of vol vii, but otherwise clean and a very good set overall. This is the second edition of Thou's history, published 1604-1608, and the first octavo edition. It was published just after the Folio edition, a few months after for the first volumes, and almost simultaneously thereafter. The first two octavo volumes (corresponding to the first folio volume and printed in 1604, identified here as Pars I and Partis Primae Tomus II) is bound in four volumes, as is the second volume, published in two octavo volumes in 1606 and corresponding to the Folio volume also published in 1606. They are identified as Tomus Secundi Pars Prima and Tomi Secundi Pars altera. The final volume, identified as Libri VI, is bound in one and published in 1608 (the Folio edition was published in 1607-8). Because Thou was editing and changing his systems of identification as he published the books, the naming system is a little odd - this final volume follows the third and fourth octavo volumes, and not the first two in how it is numbered. 1005pp, index; 1013, index; 958, index; 886, index; 501, privilege, index. Kinser pages 10-20. Graesse VII 147. Thou's history is one of the great monuments of Renaissance history and in its scientific, factual take on events, was much more a work of the enlightenment than the counter-reformation. As a result, and despite some minor changes from the first edition, all of the later books (dealing with the wars of religion and other topics) ended up on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1609. A 1620 edition collected all of the history and added Thou's Mémoires. Size: Octavo (8vo). 9-volume set (complete). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Over 3 kilos.

Nunc vero ordine meliore & triplici Indice, in lucem productus a Iosepho Stubendorfio. - Lipsiae, Michael Lantzenberger, 1604, 8°, 321, (11) pp., feiner Halbpergamenteinband im Stil der Zeit; feines Exemplar.. Sehr selten! - Severinus Eugalenus, "wahrscheinlich im Jahre 1535 in Dokkum (Friesland) aus einer reichen Familie geboren, studirte in Italien und Frankreich (in Paris unter FERNELIUS) und muss 1560 (wo ist unbekannt) zum Dr. Med. promovirt sein. 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). Er schrieb eine Abhandlung: "De scorbuto liber cum observationibus, quo omnia quae de signis ejus diaqnosticis dici possunt continentur animadversa" (Bremen 1588, Leipzig 1604, Jena 1624, 1634, Haag 1658, Leipzig 1662, Amsterdam 1720), durch HALLER ausführlich erwähnt, durch VAN SWIETEN ("E. optime de scorbuto scripsit") gelobt und auch noch in unserem Jahrhundert durch DOLLEMAN ("Disquit. histor. de morbis endemicis apud Belgas" (Amsterdam 1824)) als verdienstliche Arbeit geschätzt, weil daraus hervorgeht, dass der Verfasser ein besserer Diagnostiker war und weit einfacher in der Therapie vorging als die meisten seiner Zeitgenossen, und dass er den Muth hatte, die damals herrschenden galenischen Lehrsätze offen zu bestreiten."

        Il soldato della scienza et arte della guerra.

      Stamperia di Volcmar timan German,, In Fiorenza, 1604 - In-folio (cm. 34,5), pp. (4) 130 (4). Grande stemma al frontespizio, molte figure xilografiche nel testo e 4 tavole ripiegate fuori testo. Legatura del tempo in piena pergamena semirigida (rimontata?). Esemplare genuino ed in buono stato di conservazione, a tratti un po' rifilato, come spesso accade a quest'opera. Edizione originale, piuttosto rara. Cfr. Riccardi, Gamba e Marini (bibl. di fortificazioni) che ci istruisce sull'importanza dei contenuti: ". Altoni, verso il fine della sua opera propone tre differenti maniere di fortificare, in cui rimiransi nuove, ed ingegnose invenzioni. Il primo sistema ci presenta nella ritirata interna fatta di terra le opere a tanaglia, e a coda di rondine. Nel secondo si vede l'applicazione della demolizione al recinto primario; i bastioni rimangono uniti al medesimo per mezzo di ponti di legname, che disfacendosi, li rendono isolati. Nel terzo sistema da l'Autore una del tutto nuova ed ingegnosa forma alla strada coperta.". E' proprio quest'ultima invenzione l'apice della ricerca dell'Altoni che precede l'opera di Boussmard apparsa solo nel 1804. ben due secoli più tardi. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Chronicle of the Carmelites in Persia: The Safavids and the Papal Mission of the 17th and 18th Centuries

      Hardcover. New. Hardcover. In 1604, Pope Clement VIII despatched a delegation of Discalced Carmelites to Persia to exhort Shah Abbas I to join an alliance with him. Thus began almost two hundred years of Carmelite activity in the region. During their time there, the Order not only bore witness to the great Safavid dynasty and its demise: they also amassed a huge written record. Herbert Chicks two impressive volumes present an important collection of these writings. The records provide an unparalleled source of detailed information on the politics, diplomatic rituals, foreign policy concerns, and matters of court ceremony of the time, including correspondence between the Popes and the Shahs. Now extremely rare, the work remains an invaluable resource for scholars. This new edition contains an introduction by Rudi Matthee, an acknowledged authority on Safavid Persia. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN, Momence,IL, Commerce,GA.
