ACOSTA, Joseph
London: Val Sims for Edward Blount and William Aspley, 1604. Hardcover. Very Good. [17.5 x 13 cm], (3) ff., 590 pp., (7) ff. index & errata. Without first and final blanks. Bound in tan calf by Riviere preserving original spine. Title slightly soiled, with blank corner renewed. Some worming or small tears in K signature, with the reinforcement or mend obscuring or slightly affecting a partial letter but not legibility; same for Mm8; elsewhere some minor soiling or staining. Withal very good. First English edition of this eyewitness anthropological account of the Americas, chiefly Inca Peru and Aztec Mesoamerica, by the Jeusit father José de Acosta, "a more thoughtful and a more thorough account of the Indian world than anything then available" (Pagden). Acosta's crowning achievement in the present volume is his extensive history and ethnology of the Inca and Aztec peoples. He traces the history of the Aztecs from their estimated arrival in Mesoamerica to the defeat of Moctezuma II (c. 1466-1520) by Cortés, and he devotes over 200 pages to observations on Aztec and Inca religious beliefs, feasts and holidays, political and social hierarchies, marriages, funerals, and architecture, including three chapters on Aztec ceremonies of human sacrifice. "The idea of a "moral history," a history, that is, of mores-of customs-was an unusual one in the sixteenth century. No one, as Acosta was at pains to point out, had ever attempted to write a true "history" of the Indians, though there had been accounts of the origin and growth of the Spanish colonies which inclu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Menghi, Girolamo
Petri Landry, Lugduni, 1604. 8º, 208 p. Portada a dos tintas, con la marca tipográfica del impresor. Pergamino moderno. Muy buen ejemplar. Sello anterior propietario. Obra rarísima del autor franciscano, el más gran exorcista de la Italia del Renacimiento en una época en que los exorcismos no estaban prohibidos y eran aceptados como una parte importante de la labor de los sacerdotes cristianos. En esta obra, explica en las primeras 42 páginas los signos de posesión diabólica, por donde es más vulnerable el diablo y los instrumentos más útiles al exorcista. Ocupa el resto del libro el formulario de ocho exorcismos. La obra, muy popular en el Renacimiento, fue publicada sola en 1584, y junto a "Flagellum daemonum exorcismi terribiles", en 1586. Prohibida por el Vaticano, en 1704 fue puesta en el índice de libros prohibidos. En el siglo XX, la supuesta práctica de exorcismos fue la causa de la tragedia final del gran poeta catalán Jacint Verdaguer. (Graesser, IV, 489). Iglesia católica. Exorcismos. Catholic Church. Exorcisms.
