        Totius Orbis Cogniti Universalis Descriptio

      1605. L'incisore Jan van Doetecum riprende questa mappa mondo dal doppio emisfero da quella incisa da suo padre Baptista per Petrus Plancius nel 1590. Ci sono dei cambiamenti, come l'aggiunta della Novaja Zemlja e l'inserimento degli emisferi celesti della mappa del mondo Plancius 'del 1594 - ma per il resto la mappa è fondamentalmente la stessa. Ci sono quattro nuovi inserti angolari in cornici ovali. Queste sono delle isole di S. Elena, Islanda, Giappone e Ceylon, che sono versioni ingrandite e il miglioramento di queste isole così come appaiono sulla mappa principale. Incisione in rame, magnifica prova, in perfetto stato di conservazione. "The engraver Jan van Doetecum has copied this world map from the double - hemispherical one engraved by his father Baptista for Petrus Plancius in 1590. There are one or two changes - such as the addtion of Novaya Zemlya and the insertion of the celestial hemispheres from Plancius' world map of 1594 - but otherwise the map is basically the same. Like its predecessor, it is enclosed within a striking strapwork border. There are four new corner inserts in oval frames. These are of the islands of St. Helena, Iceland, Japan and Ceylon. The latter three are enlarged and improved versions of these islands as they appear on the main map."" (Shirley). A fine example of this higly decorative early world map." Anversa Antwerpen R. W. Shirley, "The Mapping of the world", 254; New Hollstein, Doetecum IV, 995 540 330

        Les VII Psalmes de la pénitence de David. Traduicts de l'italien de P. l'Arétin par François de Rosset

      Chez Abrah. Saugrain, 1605. - Chez Abrah. Saugrain , Paris 1605, petit - in - 12 (7x13,5cm), (1f. tit.) (3f. épit.) (1p. priv.) (6p. arg.) (1p. bl.) 161pp., relié. - Binding XVIII in pieno marocco limone. Torna liscio decorato con il grottesco, come parte marocchino rosso. Grandi pizzo oro piatti inquadratura. Oro pizzo elaborazione di contreplats carta crema oro stelle. Tutti i bordi dorato. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, de cette nouvelle traduction française par François de Rosset, l'oeuvre avait auparavant été traduite en 1540 par Vauzelles. Reliure XVIIIème en plein maroquin citron. Dos lisse orné à la grotesque, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Large dentelle dorée en encadrement des plats. Dentelle dorée en encadrement des contreplats de papier crème à étoiles dorées. Toutes tranches dorées. Deux coins très légèrement émoussés, sinon très bel exemplaire. La traduction de l'Aretin n'en est en fait pas une, c'est une manière de paraphrase, avec des reformulations amplifiées ou au contraire minimisées, l'Aretin mettant l'accent sur telle scène ou tel sentiment ou au contraire diminuant leur intensité. En outre, il s'agit bien d'une interprétation manifeste du sens des psaumes et d'une mise en scène dramatique de ces derniers, l'Aretin cherchant à démontrer sa thèse principale de correspondance entre la miséricorde divine et l'efficacité de la pénitence ; il transforme ainsi des textes divers en une unité suivie en créant un narrateur qui parle de David à la troisième personne, et qui lui permet, non seulement de donner des commentaires mais d'encadrer le texte à la première personne des psaumes : c'est une forme de recréation littéraire.

        Histoire admirable des plantes et herbes esmerveillables et miraculeuses en nature : mesmes d'aucunes qui sont vrays zoophytes, ou plant - animales, plantes et animaux tout ensemble, pour avoir vie vegetative, sensitive et animale [...]

      Paris, Nicolas Buon, 1605. de (24), 341 et (3) pages plein maroquin cerise à grains longs signé Gauché, dos à 5 nerfs, tranches dorées 1605, 1605, in - 16, de (24), 341 et (3) pages, plein maroquin cerise à grains longs signé Gauché, dos à 5 nerfs, tranches dorées, Première édition peu courante de cette botanique curieuse qui reste imprégnée de légendes alors qu'elle parait à l'aune du classicisme et du rationalisme cartésien. Claude Duret, Bourbonnais, né à Moulins vers 1570, mourut jeune à Paris en 1611. Philologue, naturaliste, il fut avocat, puis président du présidial de sa ville natale. Après avoir publié un ouvrage sur les causes et les effets des mutations des civilisations et des empires, il s'intéressa à des sujets plus scientifiques comme l'explication des marées et la présente botanique. Le travail de botaniste de Duret consiste en une compilation de contes et légendes sur les plantes, en particuliers les plantes exotiques. L'auteur puise à la source de contes occidentaux classiques, mais aussi de fables orientales et indiennes. Ainsi, il décrit des plantes réelles, mais aussi des espèces fictives tel le "Maus" ou "Muse du paradis", telle la "Moly" d'Homère, ou encore telles les "plantes, ou herbes pudiques [...] lesquelles ne veulent estre aucunement touchées", les "Arbres [dont] les troncs ou bois cheuz dans la mer, et pourris par l'eau marine, se muent et changent dans quelque temps en vers, en oyes, ou canes vivantes", ou encore les "Arbres [dont] les fruits et feuilles se muent et changent en oyseaux vivans et volans". Malgré ces fantaisies, Duret décrit aussi de vraies plantes exotiques rares, déjà connus mais encore peu décrite comme l'Ananas, le Figuier d'Inde et la Coca, et ses différents usages (entre autre, elle "donne force et courage aux Indiens"). En outre, l'ouvrage est illustré de 28 bois à la pleine page montrant les différentes plantes étudiées, dont l'ananas. Bien que rogné un peu court, et présentant de rares rousseurs et mouillures claires, bon exemplaire, bien relié durant l'entre - deux guerre. Pritzel 2553 ; Nissen 571, p. 55 : "Pas de zoophytes dans le sens moderne du terme, mais des créatures mythiques" ; Mille et livres botaniques, p. 215 : "livre étonnant dont le texte s'attarde volontiers sur les propriétés mythiques des plantes"

        Al Fooles. A Comody, Presented at the Black Fryers, And lately before his Maiesty

      London: Printed [by G. ELD] for Thomas Thorpe, 1605. First edition with "Comody" uncorrected on the title-page. First two words of title xylographic, woodcut head- and tailpiece, final blank leaf. Signatures: A2-I? K. 4to. Red morocco gilt, gilt-stamped armorial supralibros of Miller, by W. Pratt; extremities slightly rubbed, lacking leaf A1 blank apart from signature mark, upper fore-edge corners of I1-K2 restored without loss, a few marginal soil marks, washed. First edition with "Comody" uncorrected on the title-page. First two words of title xylographic, woodcut head- and tailpiece, final blank leaf. Signatures: A2-I? K. 4to. Composed in 1599, and first performed under the title The World runs on Wheels, it is one of the few to have survived from this period in Chapman's career. According to CHEL, the work "displays a surprising advance in dramatic technique. The plot, partly borrowed from Terence, is ingenious and excellent, and makes a good framework for a satirical sketch of humours developed through amusing situations in the manner of Jonson. As a writer of comedy, here, as in Eastward Hoe .... Chapman appears to the greatest advantage." The play "received performances at the Rose, at Blackfriars (when Chapman transferred from the Admiral's Men to the Children of the Chapel), and at court (on 1 January 1605), testimony to the different theatrical circles in which the dramatist came to circulate and evidence of his predilection for writing for a number of different theatrical companies" (ODNB).

        Histoire Universelle des Indes Occidentales et Orientales. Divisée en deux livres le premier par Cornille Wytfliet le second part Ant. M. & autres historiens

      1605 - A fine copy in a lavishly gilt calf from the Bibliotheca Palatina of the First Atlas of America. N.d. [1605]. Douai. Aux depens de François Fabri. Three parts in one volume in folio (295 mm x 140 mm). 4 pp. + 126 + 2 pp.; 52 [i.e. 56] + 7 pp., complete, with all three letterpress titles within engraved surrounds, 23 engraved maps on 20 sheets. Contemporary full calf stamped with gilt armorial supralibros on boards with the coat of arms of the Bibliotheca Palatina. 36,500 $ The first atlas of America (Burden); first published in Latin as Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum in 1597, and a fine copy bound with the arms of the Bibliotheca Palatina. This is the third edition in French, which is singularly important for having Magini's valuable description of the West and East Indies and Japan, incorporating rare maps of South East Asia. As the title suggests in its editio princeps, it was marketed as a supplement to Ptolemy's Geographia, with text based on the writings of Ramusio, Hakluyt, de Bry, Acosta and others. The work was evidently popular as two further Latin editions appeared in 1598 and 1603. The work was then translated into French and combined with the work of Magini and others and first published under the present title in 1605. Further editions of this compilation appeared in 1607 and 1611 (the present edition). The nineteen double-page engraved maps of the American continent appeared in all of the Latin and French editions (but with some changes of state). The first map (a double-hemisphere world map) is based on Mercator's influential map of 1587. There then follows ten maps of South America (the north coast of South America with the Caribbean islands, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica, Chile, Peru, two maps of Brazil, two maps of central America, Colombia, Venezuela, and Antarctica/Tierra del Fuego (notable as one of the earliest maps of Antarctica) and eight important maps of North America. In addition to the large double-page maps there are also four small maps on one double-page sheet in Magini's supplement showing the East Indies, Japan, China and the Philippines. The map titled Floride et Apalche is of particular note. Largely derived from a map by Ortelius, the source for both maps was the Spanish geographer Geronimo Chaves. "Privy to all of the official reports of the Spanish explorers, Chaves's map recorded the discoveries of Cabeza de Vaca, de Soto, and Moscoso. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations, and its reproduction in Wytfliet's popular work helped to correct the previous imaginary concepts of the area" (Martin & Martin). Provenance: ex-libris on front pastedown of the Bibliotheca Palatina, with gilt supralibros on boards; Parke-Bernet 10/28/69; later in the collection of Warren Heckrotte. Gallup, PBSA 76 (1982) pp. 63-73, "The first Separately published Atlas entirely devoted to the Americas: Wytfliet's Descriptionis ---" suggests that 1605 variant without date may be later printing.

        Het masker vande wereldt afgetrokken.Antwerp, widow and heirs of Jan Cnobbaerts, [1646]. 4to. With engraved title-page by Antony van der Does and 13 engraved emblems and 8 engravings in text by Frederic Bouttats. 18th-century half calf.

      Landwehr, Emblem and fable books 644; Praz, p. 459; STCV (1 copy); STCN (1 other copy); not in WorldCat. Very rare first edition of an emblem book by the Dutch Jesuit Adriaan Poirters (1605-1674). It is often seen as the third edition of Ydelheyd des werelds , another emblem book by the same author, first published in 1645. The present edition, however, differs largely from Ydelheyd des werelds : it is completely revised, carries a new title and contains different engravings. Ydelheyd des werelds contained engravings by Philip de Mallery, while the present edition is illustrated with emblems by Frederik Bouttats. Both emblem books were much republished, each under its own title. Here, each emblem has a motto and a two-line moral verse, and is followed by a lengthy prozaic text, which were enlarged in later editions. Not included is the emblem on avarice on p. 74, as usual. Poirters was born in Oisterwijk in Dutch Brabant and became a Jesuit and teacher at Malines and Maastricht. Poirters was also a gifted poet, and in the present emblem book he depicts the world as proof of God's glory. With bookplate and inscription. Slightly browned, first few leaves slightly soiled, and some small marginal wormholes. Binding worn along the extremities, damaged on top of spine. Otherwise a good copy.

"A very rare collection of Italian proverbs, some of a lascivious and/or humorous nature, arranged alphabetically. Text is presented in Italian with translations in Latin. Duplessis notes the rarity of this book and remarks that none of the Italian bibliographies he consulted mention the work. He does note the appearance of an edition printed one year prior to this one. There are only a handful of copies held by institutions, and we record no auction appearance of this work in the last 100 years.

        Histoire admirable des plantes et herbes esmerveillable & miraculeuses en nature: mesmes d'aucunes qui sont vrays Zoophytes, ou Plant-animales, Plantes & Animaux tout ensemble,

Paris, Nicolas Buon, 1605. 8vo (155 x 110mm). pp. (xxiv), 341, (1 blank), (2, 'Extraict du Privilege du Roi' and verso blank), with printer's device on title and 28 full-page woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, spine in 6 compartments, with gilt ornaments and lettering. First edition of this charming compilation of accounts of remarkable plants, illustrated with equally remarkable woodcuts. It is an anachronistic, almost mediaeval, work, devoted to the marvels of the vegetable kingdom, and includes such perennials as the vegetable lamb of Tartary and the barnacle goose tree. Duret is especially interested in such 'Zoophytes', i.e. plants that have animal properties, and which transgress the Scholastic distinction between the animal and vegetal. One such plant is a tree whose leaves fall off and walk away (illustrated by a remarkable woodcut 'Portraict de l'Arbre de l'Isle de Cimbubon, qui porte des feuilles qui vivent & cheminent').'Although the distinction between plant and animal life has been recognized by Aristotle and other writers in antiquity, people found it possible to believe in strange transformations of plants into living beasts - marvels supposedly by travellers to distant lands and illustrated in works such as Claude Duret's 'Histoire admirables.' (such a) myth was that the leaves of the Credulity Tree turn into fish or birds depending on whether they fall in water or on the ground. Among the most frequently repeated stories was that of the Scythian lamb, a shrub that grew in the steppes of Asia. Its woolly blossoms were said to grow in the form of a sheep and at maturity to drop off the stem to become a living beast. According to some authorities the live animal remained fixed to a treelike trunk but grazed on grases growing near it' (MacDougall, 'A Paradise of Plants' in 'The Age of the Marvellous' pp. 147-8).The work begins with a chapter on the Garden of Eden and the banana tree as the original Tree of Life. 'Numerous American plants are described and identified as such, amongst them cacao and the pineapple' (Alden).Duret (?-1611) was a naturalist and philologist, born in Moulins, where he lived and practised as a lawyer and civil official. He wrote several books on various topics, such as the history of languages, the rise and fall of empires, and the tides. Copies of this work are mostly found trimmed and it is rare to find a copy with ample margins as the present one. A very fine copy.Nissen BBI, 571; Pritzel 2553.

        The Tvvoo Bookes of Francis Bacon. Of the Proficience and Aduancement of Learning, Diuine and Humane. To the King.

      At London: printed by Thomas Purfoot and Thomas Creede for Henrie Tomes and are to be sould at his shop at Graies Inne gate in Holborne 1605 - First edition. 4to. [1], 45; 118 (but 121) leaves, without the 2 leaves of errata (normally only found in late issues) and final blank Hhh2 as often, old ownership inscription to title,contemporary calf, rebacked, neat repairs to edges, a fine copy. First edition of the first great work of English Philosophy. "In October 1605 he published The Twoo Bookes of Francis Bacon: of the Proficience and Advancement of Learning, Divine and Humane. It was the product of his two enforced periods of leisure, first from March 1603 to March 1604 and then from December 1604 to October 1605. The Advancement of Learning, as it is commonly called, was Bacon's first published philosophical work and the only one which he published in English. The Advancement of Learning was divided into two books. The first was an eloquent and powerful defence of the importance of learning to every field of life. It was therefore constructed according to the principles of epideictic oratory. The much longer and more important second book was a general survey of the contemporary state of human knowledge, identifying its deficiencies and supplying Bacon's broad suggestions for improvement. The book's real importance was not so much its encyclopaedic character but rather its professed aim of propagating the Baconian ideas of the advancement of learning and knowledge, and of the practical means of accomplishing it." (ODNB). It is in this work that Bacon sketched out the main themes and ideas that he continued to refine and develop throughout his career, beginning with the notion that there are clear obstacles to or diseases of learning that must be avoided or purged before further progress is possible.

        Idealisierte Ansichten der Umgebung von Hirschhorn in Richtung Neckarsteinach. Aus: Hessische Chronica.

      Cassel Michael Stubenrauch Druck: Wilhelm Wessel 1605 - Zwei doppelseitige Original-Kupferstiche mit Ansicht des Neckartals um 800 n. Chr. und 1600 n. Chr. und jeweils rückseitigem Text der Seiten 17/18 und 25/26 aus der Chronica von W. Dilich. Blätter mit deutlich sichtbarem Plattenrand des Holzschnittstockes. Holschnitte mit mittiger Faltung. Die Ansicht um 800 n. Chr. ist im unteren Rand knapp beschnitten. Blattgröße: 28 x 19,5 cm und 26,3 x 15,6 cm. Größe der Holzschnitte: 21 x 14 cm und 20,4 x 13,6 cm. - - - Dilich (1571-1655) war der Sohn des Pfarrers Heinrich Scheffer auch Schaeffer von Wabern. Von 1589 bis 1590 studierte er an der Universität Wittenberg und bis 1591 an der Philipps-Universität in Marburg an der Lahn. Dort lernte er den späteren Landgrafen Moritz von Hessen-Kassel kennen, für den er ab 1592 als Grafiker tätig war. Als sein Hauptwerk gilt die "Hessische Chronica" von 1605. Wilhelm Dilich bildete in diesem Buch alle Städte Hessens des 16. Jahrhunderts ab. Oftmals sind die Stadtansichten Wilhelm Dilichs die ältesten nachweisbaren historischen Abbildungen. Zwischen 1607 und 1622 arbeitete er an den Landtafeln hessischer Ämter zwischen Rhein und Weser. Der Maßstab der Aufnahmen reicht von Karten bis hin zu Bauaufnahmen einzelner Burgen wie Ziegenhain, der Marksburg oder Rheinfels über St. Goar. Von 1622 bis 1625 wurde er wegen Überschreitung seiner Befugnisse inhaftiert. Mit Hilfe des Statthalters Wilhelm von Hessen gelang ihm die Flucht nach Kursachsen. Seit März 1625 war Wilhelm Dilich als Kriegsingenieur, Kartograph, Baumeister und Vedutenzeichner im Dienst des sächsischen Kurfürsten Johann Georg I. in Dresden tätig. Dilichs Stiche sind das Werk einer Persönlichkeit und seine Städtebilder sind authentische zeitgenössische Quellen. Bei allen anderen Autoren (Sebastian Münster, Braun-Hogenberg, Kieser-Meissner und Merian) fehlt dieses Bewusstsein. Bei weitem der größte Teil ihrer Darstellungen sind als mehr oder weniger freie Nachbildungen älterer Ansichten anzusehen. So bilden 80 Druckansichten aus Wilhelm Dilichs Werk eine direkte Vorlage für Merians "Topographia Hassiae" von 1646. Dilichs Städtebilder atmen den Geist lebendiger Anschauung; er ist sein eigener Beobachter, Formenschneider und Stecher. (vgl. Wilhelm Niemeyer 1961, 12ff). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire admirable des plantes et herbes esmerveillables et miraculeuses en nature : mesmes d'aucunes qui sont vrays zoophytes, ou plant-animales, plantes et animaux tout ensemble, pour avoir vie vegetative, sensitive et animale [.]

      1605 - de (24), 341 et (3) pages Paris, Nicolas Buon, 1605, in-16, de (24), 341 et (3) pages, plein maroquin cerise à grains longs signé Gauché, dos à 5 nerfs, tranches dorées, Première édition peu courante de cette botanique curieuse qui reste imprégnée de légendes alors qu'elle parait à l'aune du classicisme et du rationalisme cartésien. Claude Duret, Bourbonnais, né à Moulins vers 1570, mourut jeune à Paris en 1611. Philologue, naturaliste, il fut avocat, puis président du présidial de sa ville natale. Après avoir publié un ouvrage sur les causes et les effets des mutations des civilisations et des empires, il s'intéressa à des sujets plus scientifiques comme l'explication des marées et la présente botanique. Le travail de botaniste de Duret consiste en une compilation de contes et légendes sur les plantes, en particuliers les plantes exotiques. L'auteur puise à la source de contes occidentaux classiques, mais aussi de fables orientales et indiennes. Ainsi, il décrit des plantes réelles, mais aussi des espèces fictives tel le "Maus" ou "Muse du paradis", telle la "Moly" d'Homère, ou encore telles les "plantes, ou herbes pudiques [.] lesquelles ne veulent estre aucunement touchées", les "Arbres [dont] les troncs ou bois cheuz dans la mer, et pourris par l'eau marine, se muent et changent dans quelque temps en vers, en oyes, ou canes vivantes", ou encore les "Arbres [dont] les fruits et feuilles se muent et changent en oyseaux vivans et volans". Malgré ces fantaisies, Duret décrit aussi de vraies plantes exotiques rares, déjà connus mais encore peu décrite comme l'Ananas, le Figuier d'Inde et la Coca, et ses différents usages (entre autre, elle "donne force et courage aux Indiens"). En outre, l'ouvrage est illustré de 28 bois à la pleine page montrant les différentes plantes étudiées, dont l'ananas. Bien que rogné un peu court, et présentant de rares rousseurs et mouillures claires, bon exemplaire, bien relié durant l'entre-deux guerre. Pritzel 2553 ; Nissen 571, p. 55 : "Pas de zoophytes dans le sens moderne du terme, mais des créatures mythiques" ; Mille et livres botaniques, p. 215 : "livre étonnant dont le texte s'attarde volontiers sur les propriétés mythiques des plantes".

Occasional needle and thread repair to a rip or tear, a few times with the use of a piece of vellum from another manuscript. The last 2 leaves show more repairs. In the lower margin of leaf 70v a manuscript note (18th century?) on the use of a song for the 'Fiesta de Nuestra Señora de Nievas'. There are some small marginal pencil notes in Spanish)(Date/Origin: On the verso of the last leaf has been pasted a blank slip of paper, hiding a clear and legible text, written in 2 columns. The first column reads: 'El escriptor de este libro/ y luysa de quinones/ la q co su diligesia/ lo puso en perfeciones/ pide a vras mercedes/ una ave maria/ en sus oraciones'. The second column: 'La ilustre señora/ de medoca dona nïa/ una magificat pide/ a vras mercedes/ por charidat y cortesia'. (Contraction signs have been omitted). This is, 'The scribe of this book and Luisa de Quiñones, who with her diligence put this to perfection, ask your graces for a 'Ave Maria' in their prayers. The illustrious Señora de Mendoza, novice nun, asks your graces a Magnificat for charity and courtesy'. Luisa de Quiñones, daughter of Don Gonzalo de Quiñones, was prioress of the Monastery of 'San Pedro Martir' in her hometown Mayorga de Campos, near Valladolid, from 1591 till 1594. This is a female convent of the Dominican Order, it still exists and celebrated its 600th anniversary in 1994. Luisa Quiñones is already mentioned as a member of the convent in 1574. Her family acted for some decades as sponsors of the monastery. Under Luisa's guidance the convent flourished, she is remembered in the archives as a 'mujer de grand autoridad'. Luisa left the convent in 1600, but she returned to Mayorga in 1603. Meanwhile young novice 'Sor Juana de Mendoza Hurtado' had entered the monastery in 1601. In March 1605 Juana took her monastic profession. If this Juana is the same as the 'señora de Mendoca', described on the last page as 'donada novicia' (novice), this antiphonarium must have been written between 1603 and 1605. Luisa may have taken care of the production of the manuscript and Juana, who brought a large monastic dowry, received thanks for providing the funds. Who the scribe was, is unknown. The Dominican scholars Aniz Iriarte & Callejo de Paz, who investigated the history of the monastery, do not mention the existence of a scriptorium)(Provenance: The last owner of this book was the Dutch parish priest Marinus Petrus Janssen, 1923-2014, since 1978 priest in Sluis, Zeeland) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Quartformat (ca. 21 x 31 cm), Vorsatzblatt aus Papier, 48 nummerierte und beidseitig beschriebene Blätter aus Pergament, Titelblatt mit kalligraphischer Kopfzeile mit gezeichneter Kartusche, Federwerk und eingestempelten spanisch-königlichem Wappen, mehrere Kanzleiunterschriften (Buchblock gebrochen, mehrere Lagen lose, etwas gebräunt und fleckig); flexibler Pergamenteinband der Zeit mit grünen Schließbändern (fleckig, gebräunt, etwas berieben und bestoßen). Lateinisch-spanische Urkunde über einen Verkauf zugunsten des königlichen Schatzmeisters in Mailand, Conte Cesare Airoldo: &#132;Vendita del Real dritto del Xma, e tari, fatta dalla R. C. in favore di Cesare Ajroldi e conferma della medesima. Vol. No. 8. Ajroldi" (Titel auf dem Buchrücken). Der 48 Blätter umfassende Urkundentext ist in brauner Tinte handschriftlich verfasst und zeichnet sich durch einen akkurat eingehaltenen Satzspiegel und ein gleichmäßiges Schriftbild aus. Verwendet wurde der Schrifttyp der escritura cancelleresca, bei der es sich um eine elegante Kursive handelt, die vorrangig für den kommunikativen Gebrauch verwendet wurde. Die Urkunde wird mit einer kalligraphischen Kopfzeile mit gezeichneter Kartusche, Federwerk und eingestempelten spanisch-königlichem Wappen sowie der Intitulation des Urkundenausstellers, Philipp IV., König von Spanien (1605-1665), eingeleitet: &#132;Nos Philippus Dei Gratia Rex Castellae Aragonum [ ]" (fol. 1 r). Gegenstand ist ein am 8. Mai 1650 besiegeltes Verkaufsgeschäft mit dem aus Italien stammenden Cesare Airoldo, Graf von Lecco (gest. 1681), dem Schatzmeister von Mailand. Die Airoldi stammten aus der Gegend um Lecco bei Mailand und hatten im 16. und 17. Jahrhundert verschiedene Regierungs- und Verwaltungsposten inne. Sie pflegten ein enges Vertrauensverhältnis zur Habsburgermonarchie in Spanien und Österreich. Ab Mitte des 17. Jahrhunderts bis Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts hatten vier Repräsentanten der Familie das Amt des Schatzmeisters von Mailand inne &#150; beginnend mit Cesare Airoldi, der das Amt von 1650 bis zu seinem Tod im Jahr 1681 bekleidete. Cesare hatte das Amt als Dank für seine treuen Dienste erhalten, hielt sich den Großteil seiner Amtszeit jedoch am spanischen Hof in Madrid auf und wurde durch seinen Bruder Marcellino in Mailand vertreten.
