        ESPEIO DIVINO EN LENGUA MEXICANA

      Mexico, 1607. Four full-page woodcuts. Quarto. 19th-century half morocco, spine gilt. Titlepage mounted. Lacks the final two leaves (tables). Worming at inner margins, affecting several letters. Light scattered soiling and wear. Several leaves loosening. Good. The Fischer-Sir Thomas Phillipps-Harmsworth-Gavito copy. The first and only edition of a work Medina describes as "...the largest work in Nahuatl of the 17th century." (A 1626 edition is listed in many bibliographies, but no copy is known.) The work does not fall within the usual categories of books written in Nahuatl: it is not a collection of sermons, a grammar, a dictionary, a breviary, a liturgy, a DOCTRINA, or a catechism. Rather it is a large work of moral and theological philosophy written entirely in Nahuatl. The work is designed for use by both the educated Indians and the clergy working among the natives: it is designed to be an "espejo...en que pueden verse los padres, y tomar documento para acertar a doctrinar bien a sus hijos" (a "mirror..in which fathers can see themselves and take stock in order to be sure to teach their children correctly"). The word "padres" here means both "Priests" and "fathers" and the word "hijos" both "charges" and "children." The text, in the form of a dialogue between father and son, is considered a masterpiece of Nahuatl. Author Juan de Mijangos was born in Antequera, the capital of Oaxaca. He joined the Augustinian order and taught philosophy and theology at the University of Mexico. A leading expert in the local native languages, Mijangos taught and preached to the Indians in their native tongue. In addition to the present work, he wrote PARTE DEL SERMONARIO, DOMINICAL Y SANCTORAL, EN LENGUA MEXICANA (Mexico, 1624). Two features worth noting about the book are that among its illustrations is one of the earliest portraits of St. Augustine produced in the New World, with the City of God in the background, and a note that the proofreader of the Nahuatl in the work was "Agustin de la Fuente, native of Santiago Tlatilulco," who was also the proofreader for Fr. Juan de Bautista. A native letrado who knew Latin, Spanish, and Nahuatl, Fuente was an influential presence at Davalos' printing establishment. Diego Lopez Davalos, printed in Mexico between 1601 and 1615. Indigenous people were directly involved in the production and printing of books in his shop - they served as scribes, printers, engravers, and bookbinders. An important work, rarely found complete.

        Het leven en bedryf van den heere Michiel de Ruiter. Amsterdam, for Wolfgang, Waesberge, Boom, van Someren and Goethals, 1687 (engraved title-page: printed by Pieter and Joan Blaeu, 1686). Folio (34.5 x 22.5 cm). With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of De Ruyter, 7 engraved double-page plates by Sebastiaen Stoopendaal and 1 engraved plate by Joseph Mulder. Late 18th-century calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Alden & Landis 687/21; Cat. NHSM, p. 843; Sabin 7405; for the author: NNBW VI, cols. 184-187. Large paper copy of the first edition, in the original Dutch, of the standard biography of the great Dutch naval hero Admiral Michiel Adriaansz. de Ruyter (1607-1676), who scored several major victories against the French and English, the best known abroad being the Raid on Chatham, one of the worst defeats of the British Royal Navy. For the present work Brandt used numerous original documents from De Ruyter's son and other private individuals, as well as from official government sources. "This resulted in a book that was not only based on good information, but through his exalted, lucid and engaging style also became a true folk-book in the best sense of the word" (NNBW).De Ruyter fought the English off the coast of West Africa, the Caribbean, temporarily took St John's, New Foundland, and even considered retaking New York.While the binding is somewhat scuffed along the spine, the book itself is in very good condition, with only an occasional spot.

        De beroemde onderneming op de rivieren van London en Rochester gedaan den 21, 22 en 23 Junii des jaars 1667 ...Rotterdam, Dirk Langendijk, Mattheus de Sallieth, Dirk de Jong, 1782. Oblong 1mo (47 x 58 cm). A large and extremely detailed engraved and etched view of the Battle of the Medway (pictorial image 42 x 58 cm), showing the stern of The Royal Charles in great detail, the capsized Loyal London in flames and the Dutch in row boats in the foreground, including Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, commander of the Dutch fleet, and Cornelis de Witt, deputy of the States General and brother of the Grand Pensionary Johan de Witt. With a 5-line engraved caption at the foot in gothic, roman and italic lettering (some decorated) on either side of the De Witt coat of arms.

      Muller, Ned. Historieplaten, 2261a; for Langendijk and Sallieth: Scheen pp. 303 & 449. Large etched and engraved print showing the sensational and humiliating defeat of the English by the Dutch at the Battle of the Medway at Chatham, near Rochester. Langendijk places the viewer in the midst of the action, so that one sees the ships, people and the hand-to-hand combat on the rowboats in the foreground in the greatest detail. It was the decisive event of the Second Anglo-Dutch War, forcing the British to agree to end the war with a settlement favourable to the Dutch a month later. It was also the crowning achievement of the great Dutch admiral Michiel de Ruyter (1607-1676). The daring raid was planned by the Dutch Grand Pensionary Johan de Witt and carried out under command of Admiral De Ruyter, accompanied by De Witt's brother Cornelis.Trimmed down to the edges of the image and text, but without loss and in good condition, with only some traces of former mildew slightly affecting the caption and the water at the foot of the image, and a few tiny holes or small marginal tears repaired. The margins have been extended with Japanese paper. The most detailed and spectacular view of the Battle of the Medway.

        Desiderio, e speranza fantastichi. Comedia tropologica. Da Desiderio Cini di Pistoia composta

      appresso Sebastiano de Combi, Venice 1607 - FIRST EDITION. 12mo. pp. 334 (i.e. 330), (vi), last two blank. A-O12. Italic letter, some Roman. Woodcut printer’s device on title, small floriated woodcut initials and head and tail-pieces, engraved armorial bookplates of Earl Grey, Wrest Park on pastedown, and Allardyce Nicoll on fly. Light age yellowing, title slightly dusty, tiny part of lower blank margin cut away. A good copy in C18th quarter vellum over marbled paper boards, a little rubbed and soiled. Rare first and only early edition of this morality play or, with the denomination that Cini gives it, "Commedia Tropologica", written in the language of Pistolese, (from the town and region of Pistoia in Tuscany), and also using the language of the favella. It is important, not just as a piece of vernacular theatre, but as evidence of the use of these languages in the C16th. Very little is known about the life of Cini and this play, his only published work, has been almost entirely overlooked. Its dedication by the author to Nicolao Magona da Pisa includes an interesting defense of its language, hoping that it will not be mocked for its use of patois. He also praises his patron for having the courage to support such an unusual work, and hopes it will provoke a discussion about language in the theatre. He also uses his prologue to extol the virtues of Pistolese "per la moltitudine de vocaboli, che esplicano la gravidanza de concetti" and cites both Petrarch and Boccaccio’s use of the vernacular as examples he has followed. Cini considers that other regional languages such as "Bergamasco", "Venetiano" and "Napolitana" would also be rich sources for future works. As the play is almost entirely dialogue it gives us a rare insight into the the use of a spoken regional dialect in Italy at the turn of the seventeenth century. From the library of Thomas Philip, Earl de Grey, (1781-1859), Tory politician and statesman. He was made Privy Counsellor in 1834, holding office as the first Lord of the Admiralty till April 1835, and a Knight of the Garter in 1844. He was aide-de-camp to William IV and Queen Victoria. He was the first president of the Royal Institute of British Architects, a fellow of the Royal Society, a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and served as one of the New Buckingham Palace Commissioners from 1848. Besides remodeling his London home at No. 4 St. James’s Square (now the Naval & Military club) he designed the new Wrest House inspired by French architecture at his Wrest Park estate assisted by James in Clephan.

Impression en italiques.. Marque de l'imprimeur en page de titre. Impression en italiques. Reliure splendide en plein maroquin citron mosaïqué du XVIIIe dans la manière de Padeloup. Dos lisse orné aux petits fers de petits filets courbes et de soleils angulaires mosaïqué d'un losange central rouge et de quadrilobes frappé d'un fleuron, queue mosaïqué rouge de points et filets.

Dentelle sur les coupes et intérieure. L'exemplaire a été possiblement réemboîté, ce que laisse supposer les plats intérieurs, mais cela nous semble très difficile à déceler. Coins restaurés. menus frottements en tête et sur les plats, très localisés sur de petites zones. Fastueuse reliure mosaïquée de maître non signé, sans conteste très rare. Garnier (1545-1590) est sans aucun doute le premier grand tragédien français. La plupart de ses sujets sont puisés dans l'Antiquité, mais ses deux dernières pièces sont d'une part une tragédie chrétienne et de l'autre, une tragédie inspirée par L'arioste. Ami des poètes de la Pléiade qui le célébraient ouvertement (les tragédies contiennent dans les pièces préliminaires des poèmes de Ronsart et Belleau, Baïf, ou même de poésies signés des trois), il était moins apprécié par la cour. Son sens de la tragédie est hérité de Sénèque et d'Euripide où le sens tragique tient moins à l'action qu'à la parole souveraine. Ex-libris aux armes du XVIIIe du Marquis de Vrigny.

        Les recherches de la France EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez Laurent Sonnius, 1607. Fine. Chez Laurent Sonnius, à Paris 1607, In 4 (17x23,6cm), (18) 1175pp. (84), relié. - Edition partly original, plus Book VII, table of contents, many additions and a portrait by Thomas de Leu Pasquier. This portrait was made in 1583 in Troyes and had never been incorporated into editions. This is the last edition of the lifetime of the author. Full contemporary calf. Back to nerves ornate. lack in head cover. A lack of leather on the top box. Upper joint split tail and head. Wormholes on a portion of the upper plate. Encyclopedic work and very famous, France's research differ among all works of this kind by its radical novelty. Pasquier can be considered the father of modern history, the nascent history as a discipline and then away from the legend and literature. Chapter VII, very different from the others because those are attached to research on ancient France, is interested in the formation of the French language; part is devoted to the Pleiades, which Pasquier was a member. Chapter VI was already involved in the origin of French poetry. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition en partie originale, augmentée du Livre VII, d'une table des matières, de nombreuses additions et d'un portrait de Pasquier par Thomas de Leu.

Dos à nerfs richement orné. un manque en coiffe de tête. Un manque de cuir au dernier caisson. Mors supérieur fendu en queue et tête. Trous de vers sur une partie du plat supérieur. Oeuvre encyclopédique et fort célèbre, Les recherches de la France se distinguent entre tous les ouvrages de ce genre par sa radicale nouveauté. Pasquier peut être considéré comme le père de l'histoire moderne, l'Histoire naissant alors comme discipline et s'écartant de la légende et de la littérature. Le chapitre VII, fort différent des autres puisque ceux-là s'attachaient à des recherches sur l'Antiquité de la France, s'intéresse à la formation de la langue française ; une partie est consacrée à la Pléiade, dont Pasquier fut un des membres. Le chapitre VI s'occupait déjà de l'origine de la poésie française.

      München 1607; Mainz 1604, - Auf Innenseite des Buchdeckels von alter Hand Eintragungen, die z.T. alt wieder ausgestrichen wurden. Lesbar ist:"Das Buch hat mir etwas . Sie hat mich gebisen mit ihrem Maul das wilde Buch das böse Buch ist nigs nutzt zum lesen mir zum beisen" Auf Titelblatt handschriftlicher Besitzervermerk:"Monasterii SS. Vdal. et Afrae Augustae" damit gehörte dieses Buch einst in die Bibliothek des vor 1012 durch Kanoniker der Kirche St. Afra gegründeten Benediktinerklosters. Ab 1643/1644 bis zum Jahr 1802 war dieses Kloster Reichsabtei. Das Kloster wurde 1802 im Zuge der Säkularisierung aufgelöst. Die Stadt Augsburg und der Staat Bayern teilten sich den Besitz. 1805 wurden ein Militärspital und eine Kavalleriekaserne in der Klosteranlage eingerichtet. In diesem Zusammenhang gelangte wahrscheinlich auch dieses Buch in Privatbesitz. Mit Titelbordüre (Scherer), diese unten mittig mit ca. 4,5 x 4,5 cm Verlust, und 60 (teils kleinformatigen) Textholzschnitten. Mit geschnittenen Initialen und Vignetten.

SCHERER, Georg: Jesuitenpater und Prediger, 3.11.1540 in Schwaz im Unterinntal, 26.11.1605 in Linz a.d.D. - Sch. stammte aus einer Nordtiroler Familie mit 7 Kindern. Die Familie war sehr arm, aber ihre Gläubigkeit schuf die Basis für das spätere Ordensleben von Sch. 1559 trat er mit neun anderen jungen Männern ins Wiener Kollegium der Gesellschaft Jesu ein. Bald wurde er Hauptprediger und das Volk eilte zu seinen Morgenpredigten an jedem Sonntag. Er trat gegen alles Böse auf und behandelte vorab die Häresien "mit großer Würde und Autorität." Sehr wichtig war seine Tätigkeit als Hofprediger an der Hofburgkapelle zu Wien. Immer wieder hatte er die Erzherzöge Ernst, Matthias und Maximilian als Zuhörer. Dadurch trug Sch. sehr zur Festigung und Verteidigung des Katholizismus in den österreichischen Landen bei. Im Jahre 1580 machte er sich in seinen Predigten an die Widerlegung der Augsburger Konfession. Darüber entstanden wahre Tumulte und schließlich wurde ihm von höchster Stelle aufgetragen, über dieses Thema "unter einer anderen Form" zu handeln. Aus seinen gedruckten Kanzelreden erfahren wir, wie er selbst gegen Juden und Moslems polemisierte. Als Leiter des Kollegs in Wien hatte er eine weniger glückliche Hand, was ihm viel Feindschaften eingetragen hat. Seine Vorstellungen von Teufelsaustreibungen und Hexenwahn waren übertrieben, ja z. T. sogar direkt gefährlich. Zugleich aber gewann er viele Menschen zum katholischen Glauben zurück, der berühmteste unter ihnen war Melchior Klesl, der berühmte spätere Oberhirte in Wien. - Sch. machte sich auch einen Namen als Unterweiser und Berater von Predigern. Alles in allem, er war voll "ein Prediger wider die Zeit", ein typischer Vertreter der Kontroverspredigt und ein Vorläufer des ebenso berühmten Augustinerpaters Abraham a Sancta Clara. - Franz Loidl bemerkt über ihn: "Sein reiches Schrifttum zeigt heute noch gut, worum es in jener so leidenschaftlichen und befangenen Periode des Geisteslebens von der Mitte des l6. bis zur Mitte des 17. Jahrhunderts ging und wie die Gegensätze aufeinander prallten" (In: Geschichte des Erzbistums Wien. S. 64). Im Jahre 1600 wurde Sch. nach Linz a.d.D. berufen, wo der katholische Glaube nur mehr ganz vereinzelt lebte. 1605, nach anstrengender Tätigkeit starb Sch. an einem Schlaganfall, der ihn auf der Kanzel des alten Doms zu Linz ereilte. - Josef Wodka nennt Sch. den "bedeutendsten Jesuiten in Österreich neben Petrus [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Theatri Machinarum Erster (-Sechster) Theill in welchem vilerley kunstliche Machinae [...] zu sehen sindt.

      Leipzig, Henning Gross, 1607-1614.. Oblong 4to (150 x 175 mm). 6 parts in one volume. With 7 part-titles, 6 of which engraved (one of them hand-coloured and two printed in red and black), the final part-title within woodcut border (Musica mathematica). 152 engraved plates, 2 of them hand-coloured and 20 folding, by H. Zeising and A. Bretschneider, with their initials on many plates. Woodcut head- and tailpieces and 2 text-figures. Slightly later vellum, lacking ties.. First edition of an extremely rare book on machinery and civil engineering, almost never encountered complete as thus. It provides a summary of Renaissance knowledge and contains a great variety of machines, also discussing Euclidean geometry as well as physics, mathematics and mechanics. The present copy is unusual for a work on theoretical music by Abraham Bartolus, which is here added at the end of part 6, in its second edition. It had appeared separately in 1608. Neither Berlin Kat. nor Feldhaus call for this addition. Pagination and signatures are continuous, and it is by the same publisher, although by a different printer, Johann Meuschke of Altenburg. - The personal copy of Peter Heinrich von Stralendorff (1580-1637), Vice Chancellor of the Empire (1624-37) under Ferdinand II, with his ink ownership inscription to first title and his autograph marginalia throughout the text, annotations to and sketches within several mathematical and mechanical plates, and 10 ff. of notes at the end. These extensive Latin notes concern cosmological problems, refer to Tycho Brahe, Copernicus and others, and include diagrams and horological questions. Stralendorff was acquainted with Johannes Kepler, who invited him to his second wedding (in his famous letter of 23 Oct. 1613, Kepler provided him with an amusing account of the different negotiations which preceded the marriage). - Binding shows insignificant soiling. Variable browning, spotting and staining to interior, first title with a couple of very minor marginal chips. - Berlin Kat. 1773. Feldhaus 1354. For Bartolus cf. Fetis I, 72; LOC Early Books on Music 25; BMC Printed Music, p. 126.

        Mundus alter et idem: sive Terra Australis ante hac semper incognita longis itineribus peregrini academici nuperrime lustrata. Auth: Mercurio Britannico [pseud.]

      [London and Hanau; sold:] Francofurti: apud hæredes Ascanii de Rinialme 12mo. [8] ff., 224 pp., plt., (lacks the maps).. [1607?] Imaginary voyage, false imprint with Americana interest. Imaginary voyages, such as that offered here, have occupied many writers throughout time, and have usually found a rich mix of gullible, pleased, and outraged readerships. Hall, the bishop of Norwich, found a very receptive audience for this satirical romance, as is demonstrated by the fact that there were three editions printed between 1605 and 1607 and several later editions in the post-1640 era. In his prefatory "Itineris occasio," Hall sets the frame of reference for his voyage by mentioning the feats of Columbus, Drake, and Magellan, and by discussing certain aspects of American explorations; among the maps, which are missing from this copy, are two that delineate the Americas. In this edition, the title-page is in the state with the diagonal (not vertical) shading of the pedestal; and quires ¶ and D are without catchwords on the rectos (i.e., they were printed at Hanau), while all other quires have catchwords (i.e., they were printed in London). => The title-page's claim to Frankfurt printing is simply specious. Provenance: Ownership inscriptions to engraved title-page, "Collegio Divio-Godr[anio] Soc[ietatis] Jesu" and "Oudin, S.J." Of the Collegio's library there was an early catalogue, for which the WorldCat record notes (in translation), "The Jesuits of Dijon are custodians of this library . . . The RP Oudin, Jesuit learned man of this city, is author of the preface . . . and [of] a poem . . . . to [the author]." Additionally, to front pastedown, the small booklabel of a Paris bookseller. Old vellum, neatly recased and hinges strengthened. Lacks the maps, but the engraved title-page and engraved plate of "writing" are present. These have light, thumbnail-sized waterstains at their foremargins, being the only leaves so marked, all others being quite clean. Priced approximately $2500 less than the last complete copy to sell at auction.

Text in Dutch or Flemish, translated from the English, 1706, 8vo, approximately 180 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, vignette on title page, folding map of middle east and India, 2 folding engraved plates, printed in black letter, pages: (4), 61, (5), bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label to spine, new endpapers. Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy of a rare travel book. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614.

Two parts in one. 65, [3] pp. Illustrated with 20 soft-ground etchings by Meyer. Small 4to., 190 x 150 mm, bound in contemporary Swiss vellum. Basel: Ludwig König, 1607. First Edition of Zubler's treatise covering the newly invented scientific instruments used in surveying. Three of these instruments were invented by Zubler himself "one of the earliest triangulation instruments" (Kiely). The soft-ground etchings depict: navigational measuring, land surveying of towns, landscapes and gardens, fortifications, measuring for artillery, and several detailed engravings of the instruments. The author, Leonhardt Zubler (1563-1609), Zurich mathematician, instrument maker, and goldsmith, not only describes in his text the three new instruments that he had invented, but he employed fellow Swiss artist Dietrich Meyer (1572-1658) a glass painter, portraitist and etcher to produce soft-ground etchings showing surveyors using Zubler's instruments. Zinner records that examples of Zubler's instruments have been preserved at the Germanisches National Museum. The Novum Instrumentum Geometricum bound in without signature A4, which it seems was never included in this copy. Some staining to a few pages, contemporary vellum covers soiled and worn in places.

        Les recherches de la France

      Edition partly original, plus Book VII, table of contents, many additions and a portrait by Thomas de Leu Pasquier. This portrait was made in 1583 in Troyes and had never been incorporated into editions. This is the last edition of the lifetime of the author. Full period calf. Back to nerves ornate. lack in head cover. A lack of leather on the top box. Upper joint split tail and head. Wormholes on a portion of the upper plate. Encyclopedic work and very famous, France's research differ among all works of this kind by its radical novelty. Pasquier can be considered the father of modern history, the nascent history as a discipline and then away from the legend and literature. Chapter VII, very different from the others because those are attached to research on ancient France, is interested in the formation of the French language; part is devoted to the Pleiades, which Pasquier was a member. Chapter VI was already involved in the origin of French poetry. Chez Laurent Sonnius A Paris 1607 In 4 (17x23,6cm) (18) 1175pp. (84) relié

Questo Compendio è stato "ampliato di bellissimi discorsi dall'Eccell. Cavaliero M. Leonardo Fioravanti Bolognese: & aggiuntovi un nuovo Trattato a' professori di tal arte molto utile, e necessario.. con li dissegni de gli istromenti, che più si convengono à Cirugici". Cfr. Diz. Biografico degli Italiani,XLVIII,p. 108: "il bolognese Fioravanti ( 1517-88) fu certamente un personaggio anomalo nella medicina italiana del tempo: fu tra i pochi seguaci di Paracelso mentre in Italia perdurava il dominio delle teorie galeniche. Il suo tentativo di fare del medico il protagonista dell'intero processo terapeutico e il fatto che egli scrivesse in italiano i suoi trattati, furono spesso considerati lesivi della dignità della professione medica e lo esposero a persecuzioni" - De Renzi,III, p. 75 cosi' infatti lo descrive: "uno dei più celebri secretisti e ciarlatani del XVI secolo" - Krivatsy,4080 - Wellcome,I, p. 120 cita altre ediz. Aloni più o meno lievi interc. nel t., ma certam. un buon esemplare.

The editor is David Hoeschel (1556-1617), pupil of Hieronymus Wolf, member of the Augsburg circle of Humanists, friend of Casaubon, Scaliger, Heinsius, Gruter, Lipsius and many more well-known scholars of Greek literature. His edition of the Byzantine historian Procopius (6th c.) is said to be one of the most important until today. The printer, David Franck, was active for the non-profit printing company of Augsburg citizens "Ad insigne Pinus", which published a great number of Greek and Latin classics. He started his own printing shop in 1604. .
