      J. Saurium, Frankfurt 1605 - 70 leaves, unpaginated, renewed end papers and blanks. In octavos. With the bookplate of Col. Victor De Guinzbourg, who was in counterintelligence prior to WWII and, according to his family, used a number of different names -- he also happened to collect books of proverbs, the book passed to Robert Easton after his death. Very attractively bound in modern 3/4 leather with golt ruling, dark blue marbled boards, five raised bands to the spine with gilt florets in the panels, gilt spine label. End papers are marbled to match the boards, new blanks, the text is clean and bright, just lightly tonedpages never separated. Some pages have small wear to the fore-edges as people have tried to thumb through the unopened pages, the bookplate on the end paper, otherwise clean and bright. "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. [Duplessis, 461; Brunet I. , 1076. ] Provenance: Bookplate of Victor De Guinzbourg to front end paper. From the collection of Robert Easton. "; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 140 pages [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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

      - pour avoir vie vegetative, sensitive & animale: Avec leurs Portraicts au naturel, selon les histoires, descriptions, voyages, & navigations des anciens & modernes Hebrieux, Chaldees, Egyptiens, Assyriens, Armeniens, Grecs, Latins, Africains, Arabes, Nubiens, Ethyopiens, Sarrasins, Turcs, Mores, Persans, Tartares, Chinois, Indiens, Portugays, Espagnols, François, Flaments, Anglois, Polonois, Moschovites, Allemans, & Autres. 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.

Meder zeigt sich als vehementer Befürworter von Hexenverfolgungen und deren Bestrafung, billigt reuigen Beschuldigten auch eine Gnadengewährung zu und zeigt sich z.b. skeptisch gegenüber Beschuldigungen von bereits in Haft befindlichen angeblichen Hexen.

        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".

        Antiphonarium. Vellum manuscript, produced in Spain, most probably between 1603 and 1605.

      N.pl., n.d., 221 leaves in 28 gatherings, lacking leaf 189. Bound in full contemporary calf over thick wooden boards, the binding measures 55x40 cm, the leaves 51x36 cm. - Ref: C. Aniz Iriarte & R. Callejo de Paz, 'Real Monasterio de San Pedro Mártir de Mayorga, fundación de la reina Catalina de Lancáster', Salamanca, 1994. (Details: Back with 5 raised bands, boards with 5 iron studs, iron bands on corners; The text is written in a clear Gothic letter with broad and rounded forms. The letter can be identified as the Iberian Textualis. (see: Albert Derolez, 'The palaeography of Gothic manuscript books from the twelfth to the early sixteenth century'. Cambr. 2006, p. 111) On each folium are 6 lines black text in Latin, with black quadratic musical notation on red staves of 5 lines. The height of the letters is between 1.3 and 1.8 cm. There are two kinds of initials, the majority is painted red and blue, others are spiraling black initials, sometimes highlighted with yellow paint. The penwork of the coloured initials is filled with a red and blue wave-like pattern. The standard initials measure about 7 cm, some of them are bigger. Half of the gatherings bears a faint signature, which runs from a to z and aa to ee. This antiphonarium contains both the 'pars hiemalis' and 'pars aestivalis'. Only the songs for the Laudes and the Vespers are given) (Condition: Back very scuffed and worn, showing several old repairs with strips of leather. The leather along the edges shows wear. Both vellum pastedowns have partly been removed. The joints are split, the hinges weak. Some small holes in the first and last leaves; right lower corners of the leaves greasy and well thumbed. 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]

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.

        The Twoo Bookes of Francis Bacon.

      London: For Henrie Tomes, 1605. First edition. Octavo, original vellum. Sir Roger Twysden's copy (1597-1672) with his signature dated 1621 and extensive notes in the blank pages at the beginning and end. Some staining to some pages, and contemporary marginalia. Rare in contemporary binding. Francis Bacon's "insistence on making science experimental and factual, rather than speculative and philosophical, had powerful consequences. He saw clearly the limitations of Aristotelian and scholastic methods and the growing breach between the thinking of his time and that of the Middle Ages is more precisely formulated than in that of, say, Tommaso Campanella or Giordano Bruno. As a philosopher Bacon's influence on Locke and through him on subsequent English schools of psychology and ethics was profound. Leibniz, Huygens and particularly Robert Boyle were deeply indebted to him, as were the Encyclop?distes, and Voltaire, who called him 'le p?re de la philosophie experimentale" (PMM).

Bound in 2 contemporary mottled calf bindings, richly gilt ornamented spines with gilt lettered labels (some minor skilful repairs). First edition of the two volumes of L'Écluse's collected works, including the rare portrait in the Rariorum, which is almost always lacking.I. First edition. The first part of the work synthesises material presented in L'Écluse's 'Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Pannoniam et Austriam Observatarum Historia', Antwerp 1583 and his 'Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Hispanias.' Antwerp 1576, along with additions describing new plants. It is followed by the 'Fungorum historia', the first published treatise on fungi, which L'Écluse had composed during his stay with the Count of Batthyam in Hungary, Giovanni Pona's 'Plantae quae in Baldo Monte reperiuntur', and letters of Honorius Belli and Tobias Roelsius. Approximately one hundred new species are described for the first time.The engraved title has a fine architectural border with representations of Adam and Solomon, and Theophrastus and Dioscorides, surrounded by pots of exotic plants, such as lilies and tulips (the latter were introduced into European cultivation by L'Écluse). The portrait, signed D. Gheyn, depicts L'Écluse in an oval cartouche incorporating a coat-of-arms and surrounded by pots of tulips, lilies, fritillaries, etc., two winged Naiads emerging from cornucopiae overflowing with plants, tiaras of sea-urchins on their heads, nuts, seeds, and corals strewn below.Of the 1109 woodcuts, 233 are from the Spanish flora and 356 from the Austro-Hungarian flora, and were cut by Gerard van Kampen after drawings by L'Écluse and Pieter van der Borcht. The remaining blocks were cut by the son of Virgil Solis in Frankfurt.II. First edition of the sequel to the author's 'Rariorum plantarum historia', 1601, containing further works not published in the former, and mostly devoted to exotic plants and animals. The first six books, Libri I-VI, are new writings by L'Écluse, devoted to new species of plants, animals, and natural history products from the New World, Southeast Asia, Africa, etc. This work is important for the number of new descriptions of non-European plants (and some animals) it contains, among which is the first published record and illustration of a South African plant. 'It is of particular importance to us in containing an illustration of a dried inflorescence of Protea neriifolia. Clusius provided a full description of the specimen, which he referred to as an 'elegant thistle' (Carduus), and reported that it was collected at Antongil Bay on the north-east coast of Madagascar during a Dutch trading expedition to Java in 1597. The locality recorded was clearly incorrect and there can be no doubt that the specimen must have been picked up during a call for fresh water somewhere along the Cape coast. It has the distinction of being the first known botanical object to have reached Europe from South Africa' (Todd and Gunn, Botanical exploration of South Africa p. 13).There is an extensive account of exotic seeds sent to him by various explorers. Libri VII-X comprise L' Écluse's translations, with commentary, of da Orta, Acosta, and Monardes. This is followed by further works by Monardes translated by L'Écluse, entitled 'Libri tres, magna medicina secreta et varia experimenta continentes' (on the bezoar stone, iron, snow, etc), 'Libellus de rosa' and 'Dissertatiuncula de citriis'. This is followed by the 'Altera appendix', intended as a supplement to the 'Rariorum plantarum historiae', and L'Écluse's translations of and commentar [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Opus non Solum Iuris Anglicani Romaniq[ue] in hoc Regno Studiosis, Sed Omnibus qui Politeian & Consuetudines Inclyti Nostri Imperii Penitius Scire Cupiunt, Utile & Accommodatum. Cum Duplici Indice, Quorum Alter Titulos Ordine Alphabetico, Alter Obscuras Iuris Ang. Dictiones Earumq[ue] Explicationem Continet. Cambridge: Ex Officina Iohannis Legat, 1605. [xii], 268, [20] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary limp vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine. Moderate soiling, corners and spine ends bumped, small hole to center of spine, pastedowns loose. Large seal of Cambridge University to verso of title. Some toning, moderate edgewear to endleaves. Early owner signature (of Charles Milborne) to front and rear endleaves, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. As Walker notes, Cowell was "the most learned civilian of his time." Regius Professor of Civil Law at Cambridge from 1594 to 1611, he is remembered today as the author of an important (and controversial) dictionary, The Interpreter (1607), which went through several subsequent editions. As indicated by its title, the Institutiones is an elementary textbook on English law organized in the manner of Justinian's Institutes. As Holdsworth notes, "The objects of [this book] were to promote the union of England and Scotland by pointing out the resemblances between the common law and the civil law; to give the student of the common law some knowledge of the general principles of law; and to show the students of the civil law that if they would study the common law, they would improve their knowledge of both laws, and cease to be regarded as mere children in legal knowledge. That these ideas were sound is fairly obvious [today]... but they were in advance of their time." A translation of this book was ordered by Parliament in 1651, which indicates its stature during the Commonwealth period (despite Cowell's support of the crown). There were five editions in all; the final edition, in Latin, was published in 1676. Walker, The Oxford Companion to Law 311. Holdsworth, A History of English Law V:21.

        Früheste Druck-Ansicht des Melibocus (Hessische Bergstrasse). Aus: Hessische Chronica.

      Kassel Wilhelm Wessel 1605 - O-Kupferstichansicht der Bergstrasse zwischen Seeheim-Jugenheim und Zwingenberg sowie rückseitig eine Ansicht der Stadt Zwingenberg auf hälftigem Doppelblatt. Rückseitig mit Text der Seiten 39 und 40. Papier gebräunt und im Rand etwas fleckig. Blattgröße: 24,9 x 8 cm, Ansichtsgrösse: 20,2 x 6,4 cm. Früheste gedruckte Ansicht der Bergstrasse! Dilich bildete in seinem Stich den Bereich der Bergstrasse zwischen Seeheim und Zwingenberg ab. Im Vordergrund Bickenbach mit seiner Kirche (1622 abgebrannt) und im Hintergrund Alsbach unterhalb des Alsbacher Schlosses; ganz links die Kirche von Seeheim und ganz rechts hinter einer Bodenwelle, die von Zwingenberg. Ferner sind zu sehen die Tannenburg, das Schloss Alsbach und das Schloss Auerbach. Die Berge und die Kirchtürme hat Dillich in all seinen Stichen höher gesehen und wiedergegeben als es diese in Wirklichkeit waren. Es gibt auch Autoren, die die Ansicht vertreten, dass die Kirche links im Bilde zu Eberstadt gehört und die Burg rechts über ihr Frankenstein darstellt. Dillichs Ansichten sind nach der Natur gezeichnet und gestochen. So entsprechen die Ansichten der Schlösser Alsbach und Auerbach der Wirklichkeit. 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 bildlichen 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les VII Psalmes de la pénitence de David Traduicts de l'italien de P l'Ar

      Paris: Chez Abrah. Saugrain , 1605. Fine. 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 full morocco lemon. Back smooth decorated with the grotesque, as part red morocco. Large gold lace framing boards. Gold lace framing of paper contreplats cream gold stars. All edges gilt. - [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 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.

Tear in the paper of back pastedown (repairable). Book-block generally in fine condition.. A reasonable copy of the first Plantin/Moretus edition of Seneca's philosophical works, being an impressive piece of masterful typography and Flemish late Renaissance book design. Brunet V,276f. Graesse VI,348.** The 1605 Seneca edition must be considered as one of the most important scholarly achievements by the stoicist humanist philosopher Justus Lipsius (1547-1606). Three later editions followed after his death, the first in 1615. The printer, Jean Moretus (1543-1609) was born in Antwerp and became the son-in-law of printer and publisher Christophe Plantin (1520-1589) in 1570. Moretus had been working for Plantin since 1557, and after his death, Jean Moretus became the owner of his renowned printer's office
