GUARINI GIOVANNI BATTISTA
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bacon, Francis
London: [By William Jaggard] for John Jaggard, 1606. First Jaggard edition (?piracy). Woodcut headpiece and printer's ornaments on title and "Of the Colours" section title, woodcut initials. [110] pp. Collation: A-G^8 (A1, G8 blank, --G8). Small 8vo. The Corser-Huth-Hartz-Pirie Copy. The first Jaggard edition and the fourth overall edition of the Essayes of statesman and philosopher Francis Bacon (1561-1626). Jaggard made no entry of this or his 1612 and 1613 editions of the Essayes in the Stationers' Register, and so it has been customary to regard his editions as piracies. Jackson gently disputes this notion in the note to Pforzheimer 29, suggesting that a later transfer of rights to Jaggard's widow in 1624, as well as the silence of Hopper and Beale (who did register their rights with the Stationers' Company), argues for Jaggard having some right to the Essayes. "In some manner, therefore, Jaggard must have himself secured 'rights' which the Stationers' Company regarded as transferable even though not previously entered in the Register" (Pforzheimer). In any case, a rare edition: we trace only this copy at auction. The Essayes, which went into numerous editions in the author's lifetime and eventually expanded from the 10 essays printed here to 58 in the 1625 edition, treat moral and political topics in "a terse, aphoristic style ... which Bacon conceived as a genre setting down discrete observations on life, and aspiring to some kind of objective validity" (ODNB). "In an age of complicated and superficial verbiage, [Bacon] turns the licence of imaginative and allusive ex … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACHIAVELLI, Niccolo
1606. Condition: Very good. "The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him." ― Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli is one of the most important figures in 15th- and early 16th-century Renaissance philosophy. His works helped define what has become political science. His most famous work "The Prince" has infamously coined the term 'Machiavellianism' regarding politics and dishonest politicians. It has often been considered the first work of modern philosophy, mostly because it conflicts so strongly with Catholic doctrines concerning politics and ethics at the time. "The Art of War," Machiavelli's 1521 treatise on military science, was the only theoretical or historical work to be published during his lifetime. This book of 'high military' concepts discusses military discipline, civilian interactions, how to live without factions, how to define war, and how to conduct diplomacy during a time of war. In 'The Prince,' Machiavelli treads a line between accepting tyranny and supporting free republic. He advises leaders on 'acceptable' tyranny, justifying many immoral actions taken by kings and princes; however, this point likely was written to encourage medieval Catholicism to be less strict in their relationship with the law. Ultimately, Machiavelli was seeking to provide rulers with a guide on how to be accepted by their subjects - however necessary - be it commanding respect, demanding actions through law, using bribery, or even imparting fear. This incredibly rare 1606 edition features both of Machiavelli's … [Click Below for Full Description]

With an engraved vignette, 22 engraved plates (2 of which are double-page-sized). Contemp. brown calf with gilt borders and decoration on middle of covers; blindtooled spine rebacked. Traces of ties. Book seven of Théodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies, which is considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material. Crucially, this much-sought volume includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima.

LAFFEMAS, Isaac de.
Paris: Toussaincts du Bray, 1606. Paris: Toussaincts du Bray,, 1606. Par Isaac de Laffemas, Sieur de Humont, Advocat en Parlement. Duodecimo (138 x 83 mm). Contemporary vellum over paste boards, acquisition number in ink on front cover and spine. Printer's woodcut device on title, complete with the terminal 2 blank leaves. Remains of paper spine label, deerskin ties lacking; small waterstain to the bottom 3 cm of the gutter, and to the upper margin of the last few leaves, ink splash to the margins of leaves Aii-Aiii; a very well preserved copy in an attractive contemporary binding. First edition of Iasaac de Laffemas's History of Commerce in France, extremely scarce. Son of Barthélemy de Laffemas, the first great mercantilist minister of France, Isaac obtained the position of civil lieutenant of Paris, and subsequently member of the council of state. Like his father, he embraced the idea of improving manufacture in France in order to achieve national economic self-sufficiency and produce higher levels of export. Isaac produced this work at the young age of 19, in which he restated much of his father's ideas, at the same time praising the king for his involvement. Drawing upon a number of historical accounts and sources, Laffemas discusses the practices of other nations involved in manufacture and commerce, mentioning glass, horses, perfumes, spices, and trade in Russia, China, Arabia and Hormuz, among other products and places. The similarities of argument used by the son lead us to conjecture that the Father may also have had a hand in the authorship of the book.

Incisione in rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Edizione latina. This map shows Cyprus, plus insets of six islands: Stalimini, Chius, Mitelene, Negroponte, Cerigo, and Rhodus. This map is from one of the great Hondius/Mercator atlases of the early 17th century. Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) bought Mercator's map plates and added many of his own and also improved on Mercator's and Ortelius's maps. After his death, he was succeeded in the business by his sons and they issued many editions of their justly celebrated atlases between 1605 and 1641 with texts in several languages. This is from a latin edition. Copper engraving, magnificent contemporary color, in excellent condition. A. & J. Stylianou, "The History of the Cartography of Cyprus", pp. 82-83, 98; L.

dettagliata carta geografica che descrive l'Impero Ottomano, nei territori compresi tra i Balcani, la Turchia, il Levante, l'Arabia e il Nord Africa.

MINIATURE BOOK)
London: Imprinted for the Company of Stationers, 1606. This is a lovely example of two 17th century binding trends that were especially popular for Psalters and prayer books: ornate embroidery and dos-à-dos construction. Welsh notes that embroidered bindings of colored silk and silver or gold threads were very fashionable for miniature books of the period, both in England and on the Continent, and were sometimes combined with an innovation called the dos-à-dos or "Siamese twin bindings." A favored format for devotional works of this kind, these "curious bindings permit the books to be opened opposite ways, the text of one being upside down to the text of the other. They have two front covers, which are decorated, and one back cover between them." Davenport notes that the earliest example he found of these back-to-back bindings was on "a copy of the Psalms and Common Prayer, printed in 1606-7." The binding he describes and pictures in plate 7 of his "English Embroidered Bindings" is extraordinarily like ours, the only real difference being that the featured bloom on the cover of the Davenport binding is a pansy, and on this item it's a rose. The size, basic design, spine, and gauffering are otherwise just like those on the present item. This would seem to indicate that our binding, too, is one of the earliest examples of English dos-à-dos bindings. The texts here combine the King James Version of the Psalms, supplemented by various Collects for morning and evening prayer, with the Psalms transformed into poems in English meter in the diminutive pocket s … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula copper engraving first published in 1606 by Willem Bleau in Amsterdam. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 55 x 41 cm. Nice example of Blaeu's classic world map in the so-called Mercator projection. This is one of the most famous landmarks of 17th-century cartography. Engraved and signed by Joshua van den Ende, reduced from Blaeu's wall map of 1605, it first appeared as a separate publication in 1606. In 1630 it was incorporated into Willem Blaeu's ""Atlantis Appendix"" and then into the ""Atlas Novus"" in all subsequent editions until 1658. Its influence was enormous, and it was closely copied by some of the greatest Dutch cartographers, such as Pieter Van der Keere and Johannes Janssonius. Others, such as the house of Hondius, were forced to produce their own highly decorative maps to compete. Geographically, the map was a reduction of Blaeu's large map of the world published in 1605. The charming cartouche in the interior of North America mentions its discovery by Columbus in 1492 and being named after Amerigo Vespucci in 1499. There is some confusion in the depiction of the landmass of the East coast of the United States, probably as a result of Indian reports of large bodies of water inland, almost certainly the Great Lakes. California is correctly shown as a peninsula. The Le Maire straits, separating Tierra del Fuego from South America, copied from an earlier map by Hondius, are clearly shown. In the north, a note beside ""Nova Zembla"" in the Arctic declares that it was reached by Willem Barents in 1596. In … [Click Below for Full Description]

(32),422,(2) pp.With bookplate of the Mount Street Jesuits and their small library stamp in blank margin of titlepage, ‘Chris Hunt: lege age' in contemporary m.s on flyleaf. - Rare first edition of these 'Philippics' by the Flemish Franciscan Philippe Bosquier (1561-1636), in which he excoriates the Turks for their persecution of Christians especially in Hungary. The engraved plate depicts with gruesome detail the torture upon the Hungarians, including the feeding to the dogs of Christians, by the Ottomans. Bosquier was born at Mons, studied theology at the University of Paris, and was sent to Rome where Cardinal Caesar Baronius became his patron. He was the author of thirty volumes of sermons and several plays, populist with strong moral themes, in which he attacks the Huguenots and the 'mondains'. Bosquier employs the same populist tone against the Turks, though he uses many classical and religious sources to back his arguments. He also includes a powerful plea for unity in the Church in face of the Ottoman threat.A rare work, that provides much insight into the Counter Reformation Church's reaction to the Ottoman invasion of Europe. Not in Apponyi, Blackmer or Atabey.

He reacted against Pope Paul IV due to his cruelty against the Jews. He is called "The Great Jurist" and is known to have written the four books of Responsa, which were highly thought of. This is the fourth of the four books of Responsa that he wrote. The three first were printed in Constantinople around 1560-1573, and this fourth was printed in Venice in 1606. Other editions appeared later on, but every one of these four books in the first edition rare and only few copies are registered.

Konig, Basel, 1606. 4to, pp. 18, [2], with title printed in red and black and with engraved vignette showing a sundial, and seven engraved illustrations in the text, two full-page; old marbled paper back-strip. SECOND EDITION OF THE SWISS PASTOR’S AND PASSIONATE MATHEMATICIAN AND ASTRONOMER’S FINAL WORK ON SUNDIALS. Following early studies at the Fraumünster Collegium, Zurich, Leemann completed his education at Bern and Marburg. In 1554 he left with a master’s degree in the liberal arts, then taught at Schaffhausen for three years. In 1557 he became parson at Dietikon; in 1560 professor of Hebrew at the Collegium Carolino at Zurich and deacon of the Grossmünster. He was elected to the highest rectorate there in 1592. Besides teaching catechism he dedicated himself to the study and practice of mathematics and astronomy. His intervention regarding deficiencies of the new Gregorian calendar resulted in an agreement between reformed and catholic cantons on its introduction. Leemann published his first work on sundials in 1589. The present work first appeared in 1604. This is a very scarce work with few copies recorded outside of Europe.
