        THE TVVOO [TWO] BOOKES OF FRANCIS BACON. Of the Proficience and Advancement of Learning, Divine and Humane

      London: Printed for Henrie Tomes, 1605. First edition. Fine. An exceptional copy with a distinguished provenance, ex. Henry Huntington. Quarto (pgs. 183 x 140 mm): [Title], 1-45; 1-118; with the typical erratic page numberings. With the final blank; without the 2 leaves of errata found in a very few copies and probably of later issue. Owing to misimposition, text in Dd is printed on the wrong versos (two leaves in Dd slightly shorter). Contemporary limp vellum; modern half brown morocco slipcase. Provenance: Ellesmere Library at Bridgewater House (armorial bookplate; bulk of the library acquired en bloc in 1917 by:) -- Henry E. Huntington (Huntington Library duplicate stamp at end). A precursor to Bacon's masterwork the "Instauratio Magna" this book focuses primarily on the classification of philosophy and the sciences. Implicit in the work is the use of the Baconian method, that later becomes the Scientific method as more fully developed in the "Instauratio." Because it was first published in English and later translated into Latin, it is considered one of the earliest philosophical works in English. A foundational work of western thought. Fine.

        Pharmacopoea Bruxellensis senatus authoritate munita. Editio altera.Brussels, Franciscus Foppens (I), 1702. 8vo. With a frontispiece by Jacobus Harrewijn (1660-1727), showing the interior of a pharmacy and two engraved tables identifying alchemical symbols and measurements. Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      Anet (3 copies, 2 of which are incomplete); Blake, p. 348; Daems & Vandewiele, pp. 71-72 (6 copies); STCV (2 incomplete copies); Wellcome IV, p. 357. Rare third edition of the Brussels pharmacopoeia. Brussels had begun discussing plans to establish a Collegium Medicum ca. 1605, but failed to do so. A 1636 plague gave city magistrates the impetus to compile a pharmacopoeia, however, and they commissioned four leading city physicians to compile the present Brussels pharmacopoeia. No apothecaries were officially consulted in the compilation of the Brussels pharmacopoeia, reflecting the growing status of physicians and declining status of apothecaries. Amsterdam had produced the first official pharmacopoeia in the Low Countries in 1636, based in part on Valerius, but the Brussels physicians chose to take the 1638 Paris Codex medicamentarius Parisiensis as their principal model.Binding worn; several pages browned and with a few smudges; frontispiece with a small restored tear in the fore-edge margin; pp. 77-78 with a part of the outer margin torn out and pp. 79-80 with a tear; a good copy.

        Isaaci Casauboni De Satyrica Graecorum Poesi, & Romanorum Satira libri duo. In quibus etiam poetae recensentur, qui in utraque poesi floruerunt. (Accedit: Cyclops Euripidae latinitate donata, a Q. Septimo Florente Christiano)

      Paris (Parisiis), Apud Ambrosium & Hieronymum Drouart, 1605. 8vo. (XVI),356,(2 addenda),(2 blank),38,(2 blank) p., 1 text engraving. Restored full calf 17 'Casaubon produced the first critical survey of literary history in his 'De Satyra Graecorum Poesi & Romanorum Satira', which has gone through many editions and can fairly be called a model of its kind'. (Wilamowitz) (Ref: Brunet 1,1613/14; Ebert 3628) (Details: Binding tastefully and expertly restored, antique style. Back with 4 raised bands. The remains of the original gilt back skillfully attached to the spine. An engraving of an ancient gem on p. 67) (Condition: Title slightly spotted; paper slightly yellowing) (Note: The French scholar Isaac Casaubon, latinized as Casaubonus, 1559-1614, was of Huguenot parents. He studied in Geneva, where he succeeded the Cretan Franciscus Portus as professor in 1582. In 1596 he left for Montpellier to teach. In 1599 the king of France invited him to come to Paris, to aid in a proposed 'restoration' of the university. 'At Paris he had the title 'Lecteur du Roi', but owing doubtless to his remaining true to his protestant principles, he was not appointed to an actual professorship'. (Sandys 2,207) After the murder of Henry IV he had to leave France, and accepted an invitation to come to England, where he was given a pension. He produced many important and often still unsuperseded editions and commentaries, such as Diogenes Laertius (1583), Aristotle (1590), Athenaeus (1596-1600), Historiae Augustae (1603) and Persius (1605). § Isaac Casaubon's 'De Satyrica Graecorum Poesi et Romanorum Satira libri duo' is the central text in the Renaissance theory of satire, and still is from a modern point of view. It's importance for modern scholarship lies in the decisive disentanglement of the Greek and the Roman satiric traditions. Casaubon proved with massive learning that the literary genre of the satire had nothing to do what so ever with Greek Satyrs, as was believed by great scholars as J. Scaliger and D. Heinsius, who insisted that Greek and Roman satire formed a single tradition, and that this genre was essentially a dramatic form, descended from Satyr plays. Casaubon's view that the satire derives from 'satura' or 'satira', meaning 'full', as in 'satira/satura lanx', has been accepted by modern scholarship as accurate. A 'satura lanx' was a plate full of all kinds of first fruits, i.e. religious offerings of the first agricultural produce to the gods. ('De Satyrica', liber II, p. 318) Such plates (lances) were simply called 'saturas', medleys full of different things. (Idem p. 319) 'Sic apud Latinos quaelibet mixtura specierum diversarum 'satura' sit dicta'. (Idem p. 321) Laws with interpolations were also called 'saturas'. The 2nd century Roman linguist Sextus Pompeius Festus Pompeius, Casaubon adds, observed: 'Satura est lex multis aliis legibus conferta'. (Idem p. 321) So 'simillime igitur & poëmatia quo breviter multi perstringebantur, SATURAE, vel, ut posterius coeptum pronuntiari, SATIRAE dictae sunt'. (p. 323) § At the end has been added a Latin translation of the Cyclops of Euripides, made by Q. Septimus Florens Christianus. The translation is preceded by a short praefatio, which is dedicated to Claudius Christianus, son of Florens. Casaubon praises the father, and tells that he has proven (in caput VI of liber I, p. 207/29) that the Cyclops is a Greek Satyr play, the only one that survived completely. § Florens Christianus, Florent Chrétien, was a French poet, born in 1541, who was the author of satires against Ronsard. He translated also several classical authors) (Collation: a8, A-Y8, Z4 (leaf Z4 blank), A-B8, C4 (leaf C4 blank)) (Photographs on request)

(OCD 2nd ed. p. 805) The first is 'on the decay of literary taste in his own time and the neglect of the manly Republican authors, the second on vanity of wealth and luxury, the third on idleness, the fourth on self-knowledge, the fifth on true liberty, the sixth on the proper use of riches'. (H.J. Rose, 'A History of Latin Literature', London, 1967, p. 377) The style is obscure, contorted and crammed with allusions to Horace and Lucilius. He was much read in antiquity and admired as a moralist in the Middle Ages, but now he is found dull, too difficult, cryptic, too far fetched, and too complicated. 'So fühlte sich zumal das 19. Jh. von seinem vielschichtigen Stil abgestossen, während sich erst neuerdings eine gerechtere Würdigung durchsetzen beginnt'. (Neue Pauly 9, 619) A specimen of this new appraisal is the following quote: 'The elements of composition in Persius' satires - words and ideas, images, steps in the argument, registers of speech and literary style, speeches in dramatic dialogue- are abruptly or peculiarly, even bizarrely, combined. One is faced by an unpredictable, surprising series of conceptions; continuous attention is necessary if one is to understand. However, the surprises and incongruities are often observably intelligent, apt and curiously artistic. From a literary point of view, the quality of continual surprise in Persius' style makes the Satires amusing to read'. (J.R. Bond, 'Persius, the Satires', Warminster 1980, p. 5) § The year 1605 saw the start of modern Persian philology, with Isaac Casaubon's edition of the Satires, his 'Prolegomena in Persium', and his commentary. The Latin text of this edition was based on that which was edited by the French scholar Pithou in Paris in 1585. The edition and its extensive commentary were produced by the French protestant scholar Isaac Casaubon, 1559-1614, who is the first critical commentator of Persius. He deemed Persius the best of the Roman satirists. His preface is a vigorous defense of Persius' Stoic earnestness and philosophic constancy.'The ethical interest is strong in his Persius (1605), on which he had lectured at Geneva and Montpellier, and his commentary on the Stoic satirist, of which Scaliger said that the sauce was better than the meat, was reprinted in Germany as late as 1833, and has been ultimately merged in Conington's edition' (of 1872) (Sandys 2,209)) (Provenance: Rectangular stamp on the verso of the title: 'Koninklijke Bibliotheek te 's-Hage'.

        Isola di Sardegna

      Isola di / Sardegna, tavola 60 in Italia di Gio: Ant. Magini data in luce da Fabio suo figliuolo Al Serenissimo Ferdinando Gonzaga Duca di Mantova e di Monferrato etc. Carta della Sardegna con tre cartigli decorativi e un mostro marino. Realizzata prima del 1605, misura cm 34,3 x 44,5 e, considerando il lato lungo, è in scala di circa 1:736.000, ha i margini graduati ma senza riferimenti numerici e con la suddivisione di 1°, sia per le latitudini sia per le longitudini. Scala di miglia Venti Italiane. L'immagine della Sardegna è tratta da quella disegnata intorno al 1577 dall'ingegnere militare Rocco Cappelino la quale, pur non essendo la migliore in circolazione (soprattutto se confrontata con quella realizzata dal Mercatore), grazie all'avallo datole dal Magini, ebbe un enorme credito e venne diffusa soprattutto dell'editoria francese e olandese. La carta, gradevolmente decorata, contiene tre bei cartigli: in quello in alto a sinistra è contenuta la dedica al Cardinale Alessandro Ottaviano de' Medici. Il titolo si trova nel cartiglio in alto a destra, ornato con motivi vegetali e figure di mostri, secondo il gusto dell'epoca. In basso a sinistra, in un altro cartiglio è inserita la scala grafica. L'interno della carta è rappresentato come un insieme montuoso, nella quale gruppi di mucchi di talpa sono collocati in maniera del tutto arbitraria. I numerosi fiumi sono tracciati con una doppia linea. Le coste sono caratterizzate da profonde insenature e da ampi golfi. Il mare è reso con un fitto tratteggio ondulato di linee bianche alternate e fasci di linee scure. Nella parte in basso a destra è anche un grande mostro marino in procinto di divorare un veliero. Gruppi di puntini indicano le saline. I centri abitati più importanti sono disegnati con piccole vedute prospettiche a volo d'uccello, gli altri con un cerchietto accompagnati dal relativo toponimo. Incisione in rame, bella impressione tratta dalla prima edizione del 1620, in ottimo stato di conservazione. "Map of Sardinia with 3 decorative cartouche and a sea monster. Published by Fabio Magini, son of Giovanni Antonio, in ""L'Italia di Giovanni Antonio Magini"". First edition, Bologna 1620. Copperplate, very good impression and condition."

        Histoire dv S. Sacrement de Miracle. Reposant à Brvxelles, en l'Eglise Collegiale de S. Goudele, & des Miracles faictz par iceluy

      Brussels: Rutger Velpius, 1605. 8vo (151 x 93 mm). Collation: *8 **4 e8 A-S8 (S8 blank). [40], 266, [4] pp. Roman and italic types, shoulder notes. 16 engraved illustrations including title vignette, one plate and 14 three-quarter-page or full-page engravings printed in text quires, by Adriaen Collaert, the engraving on p. 242 signed by him; three engravings are corrections mounted over the original engravings (pp. 4, 17 & 28). Lightly washed, but a fine copy, with excellent, dark impressions of the engravings. Late 19th-century Jansenist brown morocco, turn-ins gilt, gilt edges (minor scuffing to joints and corners).*** only edition of a grim miracle book, overtly anti-Semitic, containing a disturbing reminder of the intimate historical links between persecution of the Jews and Christian piety. The cult of the Holy Sacrament of the Miracle, of which this edition contains the first complete printed account, originated in an infamous host desecration libel, used as justification for the arrest and murder of a group of Brussels Jews in 1370, by order of the Duke of Brabant, and the subsequent expulsion of the Jews from that duchy. According to the libel, a Jew named Jonathan, from Enghien, decided to steal and desecrate communion wafers in revenge for mistreatment of his co-religionists. To do this he bribed a recent formerly Jewish convert named Jean de Louvain to steal the ciborium from the church of Sainte Catherine of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean. Jonathan was assassinated and his widow and son Abraham fled with the ciborium to Brussels, where with a gathering of fellow Jews they purportedly engaged in desecratory stabbing of the wafers, which miraculously gushed blood. The frightened Jews were then said to have consigned the ciborium and its contents to another converted Jew, a woman named Catherine, charging her with hiding it in Cologne, but she succumbed to remorse and reported the act to the local curé. While the recovered Hosts were transported in a procession to the nearby Cathedral of St Michael and St. Gudula, patron saint of Brussels, the accused Jews were burned at the stake and the Jewish community was banished. St. Gudula with its miraculous hosties became a pilgrimage site, and the reliquary containing the hosts were paraded in an annual procession. The cult of the Sacrament of the Miracle was not discontinued until after WW II. Many subsequent alleged miracles enacted by the hosts are described here at length, as is a cold-blooded accounting of the monies taken from the Jewish victims by their persecutors. Also provided is the text of a papal indulgence for pilgrims to St. Gudula; the history of another miraculous host, at the Augustinian monastery in Louvain; and a life of St. Gudula. The title engraving shows Saints Michael and Gudula flanking a seated God-figure wearing a papal crown holding the Golden cross which housed the miraculous hosts (also illustrated on fols. b8v and p. 72), and in which they were hidden during the Calvinist Republic (1579-1585). The remaining engravings are illustrations of scenes from the libel, a depiction of the Louvain Host reliquary, and a full-length portrait of Gudula (signed by Collaert). In his dedication to the ruling monarch, Isabella, Infanta of Spain, dated 14 July 1605, the author, a priest and canon of St. Gudela, explains his motivation for relating this terrible tale. A few partial manuscript and printed accounts of the miracle in Latin and Flemish existed (see Adam), but none circulated in French, the international language of the people. Yden describes blushing at his French, explaining that Latin would have been easier for him, and his indecision as to whether to see his manuscript into print. (French was evidently also not the first language of the compositors, given the number of misprints and misspellings.) But besides informing the faithful, Yden explains, he intends to "confound the Heretics" (fol. *4v), referring to the Protestants, who denied transubstantiation and had publicly cast doubt on the tale of the miracle. The reliquary's reemergence in 1585 (recounted here), when the Calvinists were chased out, became another miracle to commemorate. Isabella and her husband Archduke Albert made the annual procession of the reliquary a state occasion. This implied parallel between the Jews and the Protestants had already been spelled out in the stained-glass windows of the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament of St. Gudule, made by Jean Haeck in the 1540s, and it had become commonplace to portray the supposed desecrations by medieval Jews as prefigurations of Protestantism. That theme pervades this work, not only in Yden's text. One contributor, in a preliminary Ode signed "C.D.P.," calls out jointly the "pauvre Juif" and the "hereticque abominable" (fol. **2r). Similar paired epithets or exhortations are scattered through the several preliminary verses, which include an Ode and Sonnet by the poet Maximilien de Wignacourt. Thus the work's resonance and raison d'être went beyond hagiography or miracle accounts. Renaud Adam, in the article cited below, situates Yden's text in the context of Habsburgian efforts to maintain Catholic dominance over the Southern Netherlands, and traces a gradual softening of the anti-Protestant message in later editions of the work (starting with Yden's own Flemish version of the text in 1608, in which he added witchcraft to his targets). OCLC locates a single copy of this edition in North America (Houghton). Brunet V, 469; cf. Renaud Adam, "L'Histoire de Saint sacrement de Miracle d'Étienne Ydens (1605), œuvre de dévotion ou œuvre polémique?," Revue Belge de Philologie et d'Histoire 92 (2014), 2:413-433.

Pott 8vo (and apparently so watermarked); half-title not called for; pp.[xvi (not paginated)]+399+[xxix (not paginated)]; *, a - i, k - t, v, x - a, Aa - Cc8, Dd6; wood-engraved decorated initials throughout, wood-engraved head-pieces and some tailpieces to the chapters; side-notes throughout; old, but not contemporary, stippled paper-covered boards, with hand-written paper label; sprinkled edges. Title-page laid down and lower half lacking, but supplied in good pen facsimile; foxing and embrowning throughout, mostly fairly light; a good copy with large margins, nonetheless. An updated edition of a work published originally in 1573, and apparently rare in any printing: WorldCat locates only one copy of the 1573 edition, in Lyons, and none of this; no copy on COPAC. From the library of Docteur Cordes, with his ownership stamp, dated '22 Sept. 89' on the facsimile portion of the title-page. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Italiae nova et exacta descriptio

      Leida 1605 - Carta geografica tratta dalla Cosmographia Generalis di Petrus Merula. La carta, seppur di chiara ispirazione mercatoriana, rappresenta una riduzione di quella realizzata da Plancius nel 1592. Una bella rosa dei venti è posta al centro del mar Tirreno. Incisione in rame, tracce di restauro alla piega centrale visibili al verso, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto rara. Map derived from Petrus Merula’s Cosmographia Generalis. Although the map bears a clear influence of Marcator’ s style, it represents a reduction of Plancius’map of 1592. A beautiful compass rose is drawn right in the centre of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Engraving, some repairs to the verso, in excellent condition. Very rare. R. Borri "L'Italia nelle antiche carte " (2011), scheda 86, New Hollstein 999; Gunter Schilder, Monumenta Cartographica Neerlandica, I, p. 30, 20. Dimensioni 325 230mm
