Pope Paul, a lawyer-type individual vice a consensus diplomat, insisted on, for all practical purposes, a ubquitous ecclesiastical jurisdiction, which caused a number of quarrels between the Church and the secular governments of various states, notably Venice. In 1606, "Venice passed two laws obnoxious to Paul, one forbidding the alienation of real estate in favour of the clergy, the second demanding approval of the civil power for the building of new churches (in essence, a Venetian stance that the powers of the church must remain separate from those of the state). Two priests had been found guilty and committed to prison. Paul insisted that they be released to the Church. The Venetian position was ably defended by a canon lawyer, Paolo Sarpi, who extended the matter to general principles defining separate secular and ecclesiastical spheres. In April 1606 the Pope excommunicated the entire government of Venice and placed an interdict on the city. The rest of the Catholic clergy sided with the city, however, with the exception of the Jesuits, the Theatines, and the Capuchins, who were expelled from Venetian territories. Masses continued to be said in Venice, and the feast of Corpus Christi was celebrated with displays of public pomp and "magnificence", in defiance of the Pope. Within a year (March 1607) the disagreement was mediated by France and Spain. The Most Serene Republic refused to retract the laws, but asserted that Venice would conduct herself 'with her accustomed piety.' The Jesuits, which Venice considered subversive Papal agents, remained banned. No more could be expected. Paul withdrew his censure."

        La Noblesse, excellence, et Antiquit?e l’Asne. Traduict de l’Italien du Seigneur Attabalippa

      Paris: Fran?s Huby, 1606. Extremely rare first and only French edition (first Italian: 1592) of this satirical work on the nobility of the ass by one of the major musical theorists of the early Baroque. This is the earliest extant work and by far the most successful by Banchieri (1568-1634). The work ran into several Italian editions as well as translations into English and German, and spawned imitations such as Giulio Cesare Croce’s panegyrics on the pig and the ox.A member of the Accademia dei Floridi (later Filomusi) of Bologna, Banchieri took delight in turning received wisdom on its head and using traditional methods of learned discourse to prove paradoxes. In that sense his Noblenesse of the Ass (and its follow-up work, La nobilissima, anzi asinissima compagnia, Bologna, 1597) are part of the same tradition of satirical literature as Erasmus’ In Praise of Folly and Agrippa’s De incertitudine et vanitate scientiarum, which ends with a chapter in praise of asses to which Banchieri refers—although obliquely, since Agrippa’s works had been placed on the Index. However, Banchieri is clearly a child of the Counter Reformation, rejecting the use of Bible passages for satirical purposes. This edition not in OCLC, not in BL. No other French edition in OCLC or at BNF.*Wernli, Studien zum literarischen und musikalischen Werk Adriano Banchieris (1568-1634), 1981.. 53, (1) ff. Bound in 18th-century calf, raised bands and morocco title label on gilt-tooled spine, corners a little worn, some soiling and dampstaining on outer leaves, title a little closely cropped with partial loss to date of imprint, old inscriptions in ink on fly leaf and verso of title, light toning throughout, else very good.

        Disquisitionum Magicarum Libri Sex, in Tres Tomos Partiti

      Moguntiensis [Mainz]: Iacobi Konig, 1606. Three volumes. Very good; rebound in modern beige cloth with morocco title labels to spines. With engraved title pages in Volumes I & II, depicting scenes from Exodus. Decorative initials, head-, and tail-pieces. With a fold-out table in Vol II. Foxing throughout, with occasional very light staining to edges. Library stamps and early ink signatures to title pages. One of the most famous early works on witchcraft and magic. Martin Antonio del Rio (1551-1608) was a Jesuit theologian who studied occult practices in order to determine which were the devil’s work. He stressed the heretical nature of occult beliefs and discussed how to respond to the crime of witchcraft. This book became one of the most commonly used witch-hunting manuals of the time—it was used at the Salem witch trials of 1692 and has been blamed as a cause of the witch-persecutions in Europe.

        Il Pastor Fido, Tragicomedia Pastorale di Battista Guarini, Dedicata al Sereniss. D. Carlo Emanuele Duca di Savoia, &c. Nelle reali Nozze di Sua Altezza, con la Sereniss. Infante D. Caterina d'Austria. Nuovamente ristampato, & ricorretto. In Venetia, Appresso Alessandro de' Vecchi, 1606.

      1606 - In 12, [mm. 130 x 71], pp. 238 – (4). In pergamena coeva con autore al dorso. Al piatto anteriore etichetta applicata che copre parzialmente una annotazione. Piccola mancanza all'angolo superiore di quiella posteriore con annotazioni: di Mavardi (?). Tracce di bindelle. Al frontespizio annotazione di possesso solo parzialmente leggibile. Alcune pagine con piccole fori di tarlo che non ledono il testo e altre con macchie. Strappo al margine interno di p. 23, p. 87 con errore di numerazione. L'operetta è dedicata e il frontespizio presenta una marca tipografica raffigurante un serpente avvolto al tronco di un albero entro una cornice figurata con due puttini alati. L'inizio dei cinque atti è abbellito da vignette xilografiche entro cornici architettoniche. Alessandro Vecchi attivo fra gli ultimi anni del XVI secolo e il primo ventennio del successivo in genere utilizzava una marca con tre rose. Assai strana la dedica dell'opera a Carlo Emanuele di Savoia per le sue nozze con Caterina d'Austria, figlia di Filippo di Spagna le nozze si erano celebrate infatti nel 1585 e, dopo aver dato dieci figli a Carlo Emanuele, era già morta di parto nel 1597. Carlo Emanuele di Savoia, soprannominato il Grande cercò di ingrandire il Ducato occupando militarmente il marchesato di Saluzzo, che era sotto la protezione della Francia, in quel momento scossa dalla guerra civile. Il trattato di pace al termine della guerra sanciva il possesso del marchesato ai Savoia. Sempre nel tentativo di allargare i propri domini si inserì nella successione per il Ducato di Mantova e fu costretto quindi a schierarsi alternativamente on la Spagna e la Francia nel tentativo di salvare i propri domini. Morì di febbre nel 1630 dopo che i Francesi avevano sconfitto il suo esercito. Giovanni Battista Guarini nacque a Ferrara nel 1538 studiò legge a Padova e nel 1567 entrò nella corte di Alfonso d'Este di cui fu poeta di corte insieme al Tasso; alla sua morte passò poi a Firenze e quindi alla corte di Urbino. Morì a Venezia nel 1612. Il Pastor fido venne rappresentato per la prima volta nel 1585, appunto in occasione delle nozze di Carlo Emanuele, ma venne stampata solo nel 1590. L'opera unisce elementi tragici e comici: Diana per un offesa impone che in Arcadia ogni anno gli venga sacrificata una fanciulla finché due giovani di stirpe divina si sposeranno. Il sacerdote Montano, discendente di Ercole decide allora di far sposare il proprio figlio Silvio con Amarilli che discende da Pan. Amarilli ama invece Mirtillo, amato a sua volta dalla ninfa Corsica. L'opera si concluderà con l'unione fra Mirtillo, il pastor fido che si scopre essere anche lui figlio di Montano ed Amarilli mentre Silvio si unisce alla ninfa Dorinda di cui si è nel frattempo innamorato. Edizione non censita in ICCU.

        REGIMIENTO DE NAVEGACION Q[UE] MANDO HASER EL REI NUESTRO SEÑOR POR ORDEN DE SU CONSEIO REAL DE LAS INDIAS A ANDRES GARCIA DE CESPEDES SU COSMOGRAFO MAIOR

      Madrid: Juan de la Cuesta, 1606.. Two parts bound in one volume. [4],184 leaves including letterpress titlepage for second part plus engraved titlepage for first part and engraved folding map (5 3/4 x 11 inches). Woodcut diagrams throughout. Folio. 20th-century vellum over pastepaper boards, boards and spine gilt. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Moderate dampstaining in first dozen leaves (including engraved titlepage), occasional instances of light dampstaining and light foxing in remainder of volume. Clean tear in lower right corner of map repaired. Later pencil marks and some marginalia in Spanish, small contemporary ink inscription in margin of map. Overall, a very good copy. First and only edition of this early 17th- century Spanish navigation manual, complete with an engraved world map. García de Cespedes, who served as Royal Cosmographer to Felipe III and held the chair of cosmographer at the navigators' school in Seville, relied on some information on navigation and mathematics attributed to Pedro Nuñez, but the work is substantially his own. The work consists of separate sections, each with its own titlepage, devoted to navigation and hydrography, and woodcut illustrations of diagrams and instruments are found throughout. The final chapter provides instructions for navigation in the Americas with sailing directions for the West Indies, Veracruz, and Havana, as well as instructions from Spain to Rio de la Plata, the Straits of Magellan, and the Pacific coast of South America. The text also includes documents relating to the dispute between Spain and Portugal regarding the line of demarcation between those countries' territories in the New World as initially created by papal decree in 1493. The folding engraved world map consists of twelve gores and is "without title or decoration other than four compass roses. The lines of demarcation between the Spanish and Portuguese sectors of influence are shown. The gores are probably not intended to be more than illustrative although the west coast of South America has been noted as being surprisingly accurate for the time" (Shirley).

        The Historie of Justine. Containing a narration of kingdoms, from the beginning of the Assyrian monarchy, unto the raigne of the emperor Augustus. Whereunto is newly added a briefe collection of the lives and manners of all the emperours succeeding, unto the Emp. Rodulphus now raigning. […] newly translated into English, by G.W

      London: William Iaggard, 1606. Full Calf. Small Folio. ff. [8], 138, [40]. The first part includes a woodcut illustration of Solon, decorative initials and head and tail pieces. The second part [40 unnumbered leaves] contains a separate title page – “An Epitomie of the lives and manners of the Roman emperors… taken out of the bookes of Sext. Aurelius Victor” – as well as numismatic portraits of the first 12 Roman emperors (Julius Caesar through Domitian). Early calf boards well rubbed, but treated and preserved; re-backed with gilt stamped spine. Rear blank leaf is intact; the front blank leaf may have been replaced with a sheet of early paper of a similar type. Pages are generally clean with occasional mild spots of marginal smudging; a small amount of marginal worming is present on the fore edge, above the lower right corner; the upper edge of the text block is closely trimmed, occasionally nicking the running titles. The inside front cover contains the dated armorial book plate of Henry Somerset 2nd Duke of Beaufort (1684-1714) – “The Most Noble Henry – Duke of Beaufort 1705-”; the inner rear cover has a bookplate from Julius Berzunza’s Alexander the Great collection. English translation of Justinus’s Epitome of Pompeius Trogus’ lost work “Historiae Philippicae” on the history of the Macedonians and their empire. This edition of Justinus is of interest to SHAKESPEARE STUDIES. The translator “G.W.” was George Wilkins (1578-1618), an associate of Shakespeare, a fellow member of the King’s Company of Actors, and the most likely co-author of Shakespeare’s late drama “Pericles, Price of Tyre.” Pollard’s English Short-Title Catalogue first identified Wilkins as the translator of the 1606 Justinus. (Wilkins actually plagiarized much of the translation from Arthur Golding’s earlier English edition). In 1965 the scholar E.A.J. Honigmann confirmed the Wilkins ascription by showing how a passage lifted from Sydney’s “Arcadia” was used in both the “Historie of Justine” and in Wilkins’s 1608 novel “The Painful Adventures of Pericles, Prince of Tyre.” The novel was based on Shakespeare’s play (performed in 1607 and published in 1609). In addition Wilkins’s “Pericles” re-uses part of the dedication which he wrote for the Justinus. A number of scholars over the years have argued that Wilkins was the co-author of Shakespeare’s Pericles play. The theory that some of Shakespeare’s later works were co-authored has created controversy amongst scholars who do not want to believe that the great bard would stoop to working with mediocre writers like Wilkins. Scholarship, however, has produced mounting evidence supporting the co-authorship scenario. Scholars have also examined the possibility that some passages in the Wilkins’s Pericles novel preserve parts of the original play. In 1987 the state of scholarship was such that the Oxford edition of the “Complete Works of Shakespeare” included the play as a reconstructed text and drew “more heavily than usual on Wilkins’s novel.” [Vickers, p.313] An important study by Prof. Brian Vickers, Senior Fellow at the School of Advanced Study at the University of London, appears to definitively establish the co-authorship theory. (See Vickers, “Shakespeare, Co-Author; A Historical Study of Five Collaborative Plays,” Oxford U. Press, 2002). This edition of Justinus is scarce at auction. [ESTC S117759, STC (2nd ed.) 24293].

        "Maris Pacifici" from Theatrum orbis Terrarum

      London: John Norton, 1606. Single sheet, float mounted and framed (21 4/8 x 27 2/8 inches). THE FIRST PRINTED MAP TO BE DEVOTED TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND TO SHOW AN EARLY DEPICTION OF THE WEST COAST OF AMERICA. This map was one of the most important that appeared in Abraham Ortelius's "Theatrum orbis terrarum". Entitled "Maris Pacifici"--"Ocean of Tranquility"-- it was the first printed map to be devoted to the Pacific Ocean, and also includes an early depiction of the west coast of North America, Japan and New Guinea. Nova Hispania (Mexico) and the California peninsula are shown quite accurately for the time. Primarily, however, the map celebrates the achievements of Magellan, the first to traverse the Pacific Ocean and to discover the strait at the southern tip of South America that would come to be named in his honor. Magellan's ship "Victoria" is depicted in the Pacific along with a celebratory Latin inscription. The map is unusually centered on the Pacific itself rather than on any landmass, thus showing the ocean in its entirety as it stretches from Asia to America. This deceptively simple compositional strategy emphasizes the vastness of the Pacific while stressing the magnitude of Magellan's achievement as the first to circumnavigate the globe. Ortelius derived much of the Pacific cartography from the map published in 1589 by his associate, the map engraver Frans Hogenberg, though Ortelius introduced a considerably narrower and more correct North America at the latitude of the Tropic of Cancer than Hogenberg. Although the plate bears the date of 1589, "Maris Pacifici" was first published in Ortelius's 1590 "Additamentum," an appendix to his atlas, and was then included in future editions of the Theatrum..

        OF THE CHVRCH

      London: Imprinted by Humfrey Lownes, for Simon Waterson, 1606. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 225 x 165 mm (8 7/8 x 6 1/2"). 8 p.l., 275, [1], 23 pp. FIRST EDITION. Limp vellum, ink titling on spine, remnants of ties. Headpiece and printer's emblem on title page, large historiated initials, historiated headpieces and tailpieces. Front pastedown with bookplate of John Sparrow, title page with early inscription of the Reverend Henry Wright. STC 10857; Lowndes I, 796. Vellum a bit rumpled and rather soiled, very small portions of the vellum missing in two places, but the original unsophisticated binding still entirely solid and with significant appeal as a period survival. A handful of gatherings with very faint dampstain in lower corner, trivial worming in bottom margin of three leaves, other insignificant defects in the text, but still an excellent wide-margined copy internally, the leaves quite fresh, with deep impressions of the type. This work constitutes a classic statement of the position of the Anglican church on such controversial topics as grace, the Bible, and the proper relationship of church and state, steering a cautious course between Catholicism and Lutheranism. Among the many "heretical" views denounced here is the notion that women could be priests. Of this book, Field's great work, DNB says, "It is needless to speak of a work which has long taken its stand by the side of Hooker among the grandest monuments of polemical divinity in the language." Despite the title, this volume contains (as it should) only four books (the fifth appeared in 1610), with an apology on the final page by the author, who "thought it more fit . . . to publish these foure Bookes by themselves than to stay them til the fift might bee added to them." Our copy does, however, contain the sometimes missing appended material at the end in which Field clarifies his position on some key points, including the doctrines of original sin and of transubstantiation. Richard Field (1561-1616, called "Feild" on the title page) was chaplain to James I and held other ecclesiastical offices, but spent most of his time in peaceful Burghclere, Hampshire, where he was rector and where learned men sought his conversation. Former owner John Sparrow (1906-92) was a barrister and literary critic who was elected dean of All Souls, Oxford, in 1952. He gave various talks on the BBC and was an avid as well as discriminating collector of books, letters, and paintings.

        Patrimonio di S. Pietro Sabina et Ducato di Castro

      Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. le carte del Lazio del Magini sono di complessa analisi. Egli divide per la prima volta la regione in due parti, usando come limite il corso del Tevere e dell?Aniene. La carta in questione comprende i territori a nord dei due fiumi ed è il prodotto dell?esame di diverse carte. L?autore infatti delinea la costa fino a Civitavecchia seguendo al carta del senese del Buonsignori, la parte della Tuscia è ispirata dal Bellarmato, la parte del lago di Bolsena e della Sabina è tradotta dal Danti, mentre per la campagna a nord di Roma si vede l?influenza della mitica carta di Eufrosino della Volpaia del 1547.Incisa da Benjamin Wright dopo il 1606. In ottimo stato di conservazione. "Magini's maps of Latium have a complex background. He is the first to divide this region into two parts, using the courses of the Aniene and Tiber rivers as borders. This particular map shows the territories situated to the north of these two rivers and is the outcome of the study of previous works.The coastline up to the town of Civitavecchia is after Buonsignori while the northwestern part of the region was inspired by Bellarmato. The area around the lake of Bolsena is taken from Danti and, finally, in the rendering of the countryside in the immediate whereabouts of the northern suburbs of Rome the influence of Eufrosino della Volpaia's 1547 map can be seen. Engraved by Benjamin Wright after 1606. In very good conditions.-Italy according to Magini: a cartographical model for posterity- Giovanni Antonio Magini was born in Padua in 1555, dedicating himself to the study of astronomy from an early age. In 1588 the Senate of Bologna appointed him Lecturer of Astronomy at the local university, choosing him instead of Galileo Galilei. His friendship with the Duke of Mantua, Vincenzo Gonzaga, helped Magini in his quest to obtain cartographical material for map-making from the various sovereigns ruling the different italian states at that time. Because of Magini's early death in 1617 this effort was made known by his son Fabio when he published the atlas ""L'Italia"" in Bologna in 1620. This is the first example of an italian atlas and is made up of 24 pages of descriptive text and 61 maps of the italian peninsula. Although this work was published posthumously, it can be entirely ascribed to Magini. He began drawing this maps around 1594, with the one depicting Bologna and its surrounding territories being the first. They were all printed before 1620 in draft editions which were then revised and updated for the final version. These draft proofs are extremely rare, although sometimes available for sale, and exhibit substantial differences in respect to the maps finally included in the atlas. Two of the most famous engravers of the time, Arnoldo Arnoldi and the englishman Benjamin Wright, were entrusted by Magini to engrave the plates. As we shall see in the presentation of the separate maps, they derive from different sources, both known and unknown, and therefore represent the result of an original work of critical analysis and compilation. This atlas had an important influence on the cartography of the italian peninsula for the following two centuries, beginning from Ortelius and going on to the principal dutch cartographers and editors. From the 1620 edition of ?L?Italia?." Bologna Bologna 475 370

      Klein-8°. 8 n.n. Bl. 715 S. 2 w. Bl. Pergamentband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Hirsch I, 689. - HOH 195. - Krivatsy 2344. - Erste Ausgabe unter diesem Titel. Ein Teil des Textes erschien in Rom 1602 unter dem Titel "Artis medica" sowie in Frankfurt 1605 unter dem Titel "Katoptron". Das Werk beschreibt und vertieft die Ideen von Andreas Cesalpino (1519-1603) über den Verlauf des Blutes von den Venen in die Arterien und erweitert seine erstmals 1571 beschriebenen und in den "Peripateticarum quaestionum" gedruckten Beobachtungen zum Blutkreislauf. Er war der Erste, der den Begriff "Circulatio sanguinis" in die Wissenschaft einführte. Es muss davon ausgegangen werden, dass William Harvey die Schriften von Cesalpino kannte und wesentliche Teile daraus übernahm. Der Band enthält viele andere Hinweise zur medizinischen Praxis und behandelt ausführlich Drogen. Cesalpino gilt als der wichtigste Botaniker der italienischen Renaissance, daneben arbeitete er als Mediziner und langjähriger Direktor des botanischen Gartens in Pisa. 1582 wurde er Leibarzt von Papst Clemens VIII. - Einzelne Lagen leicht gebräunt, sonst sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar in gutem Einband.
