We offer an very scarce copperengraving: " Wharhafftige Abbildung des grossen Schiffstreits zwischen der Armada des Königs von Hispanien und etlichen Kriegsschiffen der Herrn Staden unterm Commando des Admirals Iacob Heimskirchen von Amsterdam geschehen auf der Rede von Gibraltar den 25 Aprilisim Jhar 1607" Very big copperengraving, 32x85 size of the view, german edition, perhaps Merian, approx. anno 1650. Clean copy, no cracs or wormholes. The naval Battle of Gibraltar took place on 25 April 1607during the Eighty Years War when a Dutch fleet surprised and engaged a Spanish fleet anchored at the Bay of Gibraltar. During the four hours of action, the entire Spanish fleet was destroyed. The Dutch fleet of 26 smaller warships and four cargo ships was led by Jacob van Heemskerk. The Dutch flagship was AEolus. Other Dutch ships were De Tijger (Tiger), De Zeehond (Seal), De Griffionen (Griffon), De Roode leeuw (Red Lion), The Golden Lion, De Zwarte Beer (Black Baer), De Witte Beer (White Bear) and De Ochtendster (Morningstar). The spanish fleet of 21 ships, including 10 Galleons of the largest size, was led by Don Juan Alvarez de Avila. The Spanish flagship San Augustin (St. Augustine) was commanded by Don Juan's son. Other ships were Nuestra Senora de la Vega (Our Lady of Vega) and Madre de Dios (Mother of God). Van Heemskerk left some of his ships at the bay entrance to prevent the excape of any Spanish ship. The attacking ships were ordered to focus on the Spanish flagship and the Dutch fleet stood into the bay. Van Heemskerk was killed during the first approach on the Spanish flagship as a cannon ball severed his leg. The Dutch lost 100 men including admiral Van Heemskerk. 60 Dutch were wounded. The Spanish lost their entire fleet, meaning 21 ships and 4.000 men, including Alvarez. A VERY SCARCE COPPERENGRAVING NOT FOUND IN THE WEB!!.

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.

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 Canisius" (In: Kirche in Österreich... S. 209). Seine Grabstätte fand Sch. im heutigen alten Dom in Linz direkt unter der Kanzel, von der aus er sooft gepredigt hatte. (Quelle: Bautz: Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon, Band XXII (2003), Spalten 1213-1215 Autor: Ekkart Sauser). EISENGREIN, Martin: kath. Theologe und Polemiker, * 28.12. 1535 in Stuttgart als Sohn lutherischer Eltern, 3.5. 1578 in Ingolstadt. - E. studierte in Tübingen, Ingolstadt und Wien und wurde dort 1555 Professor der Beredsamkeit und 1557 der Naturphilosophie. 1558 trat er zur katholischen Kirche über und studierte Theologie. E. wurde 1560 Domprediger in Wien, 1562 Pfarrer in Ingolstadt und 1564 Professor der Theologie, zugleich Propst von Moosburg und Altötting, 1568 Hofprediger Maximilians II. Da ihm das weltliche Leben am Hof nicht zusagte, kehrte er 1570 als Superintendent oder Inspektor der Universität nach Ingolstadt zurück. Als Gesandter des Herzogs von Bayern, Albrecht V., nahm E. 1563/64 in Wien an den Verhandlungen über Laienkelch und Priesterehe teil. 1566 sandte ihn der Herzog nach Rom, um für seinen Sohn Ernst als Bischof von Freising die päpstliche Bestätigung zu erwirken. E. war ein bedeutender Polemiker, Prediger und Volksschriftsteller und neben Johann Eck der eigentliche Führer der Gegenreformation in Bayern.

Now Enlarged. London: Printed for the Companie of Stationers, 1606. 80 pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary limp vellum with lapped edges, early hand-lettered titles to spine and fore-edge, ties lacking. Some soiling, rubbing to extremities, hinges just starting at ends, partial crack between pp 64-65. Later annotations and bookplates of William Allen Potter and bibliographer E.F. Bosenquet to front pastedown and free endpaper, text notably fresh. An appealing copy. * Lambard, or Lambarde, a barrister and legal historian, was the keeper of records at the Rolls Chapel and the Tower of London. First published in 1581, Eirenarcha is esteemed for its comprehensive and systematic account of the organization of local government under the justices of the peace at the end of the sixteenth century. It was the standard authority for many years and often reprinted. Like many books of its kind, Eirenarcha offers fascinating insights into the society that produced it. This is evident in the detailed indictments for such offenses as murder via witchcraft, raping a child or maid (the age of distinction was ten), hearing a Catholic Mass, practicing usury and operating a bowling alley. First published in 1582, Duties of Constables is a companion work. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:229(43), 234 (9)..

Selfisch, 1605. [bound with]:LEMNIUS, Levinus. De Astrologia Liber unus... Woodcut printer's device on title. 5 p.l., 25 leaves, 2 blank leaves. Small 8vo (light browning). Jena: T. Steinmann, 1587. A pleasant sammelband of three noteworthy textbooks in a most attractive contemporary binding. I. First edition. Keckermann (1573-1609), was a German theologian and philosopher best known for his "analytical method." He studied at the universities of Wittenberg and Leipzig and became professor of Hebrew at Heidelberg. From 1602 until his death, he served as rector a the gymnasium of Danzig, his native town. This is one of many "systems" or textbooks which he wrote on all aspects of knowledge including logic, politics, economics, science, astronomy, geography, physics, etc. "Keckermann was one of the earliest Western thinkers to use the term 'system' to describe academic treatises; his detailed discussion of the component parts of systematic textbooks appears to be the first of this kind and many have been without parallel during the entire seventeenth century."-Joseph S. Freedman, "The Career and Writings of Bartholomew Keckermann (d. 1609)" in Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society, Vol. 141, No. 3 (1997), pp. 305-64 & A.22 in his bibliography. WorldCat locates no copy in the U.S. II. A late edition (1st ed.: 1564) of a very popular textbook on astronomy which was the standard textbook on the subject at the University of Wittenberg for more than fifty years. Theodoricus (1501-78), a native of Windsheim, took his degrees in philosophy and medicine at Wittenberg and became professor of mathematics there. He surely knew Rheticus. "His own manual of 320 small pages in four parts is arranged in the form of questions and answers, with the former set off in heavy type and with considerable use of the syllogistic form of proof in the answers ...He cites Copernicus as well as Ptolemy for the relative magnitudes of earth and sun. He gives Copernicus's figures for the maximum and minimum declination of the sun, and his estimate that this movement of the ecliptic approaching and receding from the equator is completed in 1717 years...the textbook of Theodoricus...appears to have been inflicted on the students at Wittenberg for several decades, since further editions appeared in 1567, 1570, 1578 and 1605."-Thorndike, VI, pp. 34-35. The large woodcut plate contains a number of figures designed to be cut up and used as movable parts on several of the text woodcuts. This is a rather wonderful survival. WorldCat locates only one copy in the U.S. III. Second edition (1st ed.: Antwerp: 1554) of the author's first book. Lemnius (1505-68), studied medicine at the University of Louvain under Vesalius, Dodoens, and Conrad Gesner. He returned to practice in his native city of Zierikzee and had a broad interest in medicine, hygiene, geography, botany, and astrology. He is most famous for his book on the occult miracles of nature. ❧ II. Thorndike, V, 154 & Zinner 4066. III. Lindeboom cols. 1169-70. Zinner 3260. .

        Delineatio Regiae Civitatis Candy [Ceylon / Taprobana / Sri Lanka].

      1607 - Ceylon as portrayed by De Bry. 1607. Frankfurt. De Bry. Excellent condition. 270 mm x 350 mm. Uncommon early view of the city of Ceylon –now Sri Lanka-, shown from above, intricately engraved; it shows a fortification at the center of the city, flanked at East by a river, and giving an idea of the architecture of the town. Four men in local costumes, in civilian and war-like attires, also illustrate the image. The island was under Chinese control until 1505, when the Portuguese first made an attempt of colonization; in 1517 the colony became permanent until the arrival of the Dutch in the early years of the 17th century, led by Joris de Spilbergen; this view likely represents the city under Dutch rule. Following a period of unrest, the Dutch finally settled and ruled the island for almost two centuries. Published in De Bry’s “Little Voyages”, a collection of voyages to the East Indies.

      Stampato appresso Richardo Pittore (d. i. Middelburgh, Schilders), 1607.. Mit Druckermarke auf Titel. 4 Bll., 378 (recte 322) S., 15 Bll. Prgt. d. Zt. mit handschriftl. Rückentitel. Lowndes III, 728; Brunet, Suppl. I, 507: "Ce livre est fort rare ei fort recherche en Angleterre". - Die Lebensgeschichte der Lady Jane Grey (1536/37-1554) wurde von Michelangelo Florio im Jahr ihrer Hinrichtung verfasst, aber erst mit dieser vorliegenden Ausgabe 1607 publiziert. - Nach dem Tode Eduard VI. und den politischen Machtspielen des Lordprotektors Dudley, der die rechtmäßige Thronfolge der katholischen Maria Tudor zu verhindern suchte, wurde Jane Grey am 9. Juli 1553 in London zur Königin erklärt. Schon die Proklamation stand unter keinem guten Stern, ein sechzehnjähriger Junge, Gilbert Potter, rief das Maria die rechtmäßige Königin sei. Janes Anhänger griffen sofort hart durch, ließen ihn verhaften und in Cheapside an den Ohren an den Pranger nageln, bevor sie sie ihm abschnitten. Maria Tudor wurde von ihren Anhängern am nächsten Tag in Norfolk zur Königin ausgerufen, Jane Grey versuchte sofort die Machtfrage militärisch zu klären. Volkes Meinung stand eindeutig auf Seiten Maria Tudors, Janes Soldaten desertierten und Maria Tudor wurde schon am 20. Juli in London zur alleinigen Königin ausgerufen. Die ehemalige Queen Jane wurden umgehend im Tower of London festgesetzt, ihre Hinrichtung erfolgte am 12. 2. 1554. - Der Berichterstatter Florio (1515-1572), Sohn konvertierter Juden, war Franziskaner bevor er zum Protestantismus wechselte; aufgrund religöser Verfolgung flüchtete er von Italien über Paris 1550 nach England und wirkte dort als Pastor. Sein Sohn war der Renaissance-Humanist John Florio, der möglicherweise eng mit William Shakespeare befreundet war. - Mit dem Exlibris des bekannten Sammlers James Patrick Ronaldson Lyell (1871-1948; Gründers der "Lyell Lectures" an der Oxford University. - Es fehlen die Bindebänder. Einband etwas angestaubt, sonst recht gutes Exemplar!

        Les plees del corone, diuisees in plusors titles & common lieux. Per queux home pluis redement & plenairement trouera quelq[ue] chose que il quira, touchant les dits plees, composes per le tresreuerend iudge, Monsieur Guilliaulme Staundford Chiualer, dernierment corrigee Auecques vn table parfaicte des choses notables contenus in ycelle, nouelment reueu & corrigee, oue ascun nouel additions [with] An exposition of the Kings prerogatiue, collected out of the great Abridgement of Iustice Fitzherbert, and other old writers of the lawes of England, by the right worshipfull Sir William Stanford Knight, lately one of the iustices of the late Queenes Maiesties Court of Common Plees. [etc.]

      London: [Pleas:] Londini ex typographia Societatis Stationariorum. Anno Domini 1607. [Prerogative:] London printed for the Company of Stationers. 1607., 1607. Book. Very Good. Leather. Description: Two works in one volume. Sm. 4to (8 ×6 in): [12], 198; [1], 85 leaves. Early calf, rebacked, red title-label. · Register: 4º: ¶^8 2¶^4 A-Z^8 &^8 [sec.]^6; A-K^8 L^6. · Condition: Pages clean and bright. · Comments: Last edition. Stanford's 'Plees del coron' was the first legal text book in England to cite specific authorities for every proposition. Stanford relied heavily on the material heaped together under the heading 'Corone' in Fitzherbert's Abridgment. However, Stanford arranged his treatise under chapters and headings in a coherent text, quoting acts of parliament and passages from Glanvill and Bracton. The treatise was first printed by Richard Tottell in 1557, shortly before Stanford's death. It is written in Law French. The other treatise in this volume is Stanford's 'Exposicion of the Kinges Prerogative'. Although written in 1548 (according to the dated dedication to Nicholas Bacon, then attorney of the wards), it was not published until 1567. It is built on the readings of the 'Prerogative regis', which was by early repute mistakenly called a statute of parliament. It also drew heavily on Fitzherbert and Stanford expressed the hope that others would similar treat titles of the Abridgment in an orderly fashion. The treatise deals with the property rights of the crown. It is written in English. · Title continued: "Whereunto is annexed the proces to the same prerogative appertaining." · References: ODNB, J. H. Baker, "Stanford, Sir William (1509-1558)"; S&M 1:365(68); S&M 1:119(79); STC 23224; STC 23218..

        The Historie of Foure-Footed Beastes … [with:] The Historie of Serpents. Or, The second booke of living creatures

      London: printed by William Jaggard,, 1607 & 1608. 2 works bound in one volume, folio (324 × 217 mm). Late 19th-century polished calf by Lloyd, spine richly gilt in compartments, red morocco labels, sides ruled around in gilt with a French fillet, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Bookplates of Lord Battersea (1893), Thereze Mary Hope, and William Binns Cowper. Illustrated with woodcuts in the text throughout. FFB with the Gorgon title-vignette as usual, with variant settings B2r catchword "gers" and B6r line 1: "Crowne" as per the Harvard copy, and without the extra leaf inserted in only a few copies after F4 headed "The Picture of the vulger Bugill Folio 57". Joints lightly rubbed and front joint just started at head, short closed tears at foot of FFB title, B3, and B4, and in fore-edge of 3Y3; a few minor marks or stains but generally clean and fresh, a very good copy. First editions of two of the most impressive large illustrated books of the Jacobean era. Topsell's fantastical natural history was an avowedly spiritual reading of the book of nature; his "declared purpose in collecting together pictures of animals, and stories about their ways, is to entertain, to inform, and above all to edify. He envisages The Historie of Foure-Footed Beastes as suitable sabbath reading-matter in the godly home (epistle dedicatory, final paragraph)" (ODNB). Topsell relied heavily for both text and illustration on the Historia animalium of the mid-16th-century Swiss protestant encyclopaedist Conrad Gesner, but he added material from the English writers John Caius (on dogs), Thomas Blundeville and Gervase Markham (on the horse), and Thomas Penny via Thomas Mouffet (on insects), as well as remarks of his own. The proposed books on birds and fishes to complete the series never appeared.

Possevino "represented the literary, scientific, and diplomatic type of Jesuit, performing important political missions, establishing schools of science and letters, and applying himself to diplomatic protocols and classical authors with equal assiduity." [Catholic Encyclopedia]. & & 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."

The first and only edition. (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. MEDINA (MEXICO) 238. ANDRADE 28. PUTTICK & SIMPSON, FISCHER SALE, 1138 (this copy). PALAU 168872. GARCIA ICAZBALCETA, LENGUAS 45. VINAZA 119. AYER COLLECTION N155. UGARTE 236. SABIN 48908.

        Regni Valentiae Typus

      Amsterdam. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13 7/8" x 18.75". Beautiful vibrant map of western Spain, circa 1607. Published in "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Latin text on verso. Minor dampstaining. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today. Originally created by Mercator, this plate was later added to by Hondius.

Smeers". Pretty copy . Very rare and beautiful series of engravings by an unidentified artist, accompanying the text of the Jesuit priest, Bartolomeo Ricci (1542-1613), whose Italian commentary on the Gospels appeared in the same year. An unusual book in its design. Each page of text, facing an engraved plate, is laid out in variety of columns from one to four, or even in combinations of columns, to accommodate parallel presentations of the Gospels, and in a variety of type sizes, to fit each text to a single page. Ricci's work of the following year (1608), TRIUMPHVS IESU CHRISTI CRUCIFIXI, was printed by Plantin-Moretus in Antwerp, with engravings by the great Adrian Collaert. The artist-engraver of this beautiful series seems not to be recorded. OCLC locates only 7 copies worldwide (four in Germany, one in Spain, and in North America ,at the Bridwell Library); the Pierpont Morgan Library also holds a copy

'Esta edição, bastante rara tambem, traz uma Epistola-Dedicatoria, diigida pelo impressor Jorge Rodrigues ao Duque D. Alvaro de Lencastre. Nessa Dedicatoria erradamente se declara ser esta a terceira edição da obra, citando-se tambam como primeira a publicada pelo autor a de de 1554, e como segunda a de Simão Lopes, e nada dizendo ácêrca da autentica primeira, impressa por Luis Rodrigues em 1545. Isto demonstra ser já a edição de 1545 quasi ou de todo desconhecida nesse tempo! Tal a sua extrema raridade.' Inocêncio III, 118: "Garcia de Resende, Moço da câmara d'El-Rei D. João II, de cujo serviço passou em 1490 para o do príncipe D. Afonso, voltando de novo por morte deste no ano seguinte a servir o pai no lugar de Moço da Escrivaninha, que parece equivalia a Secretario particular. Quase vinte anos depois do falecimento do referido monarca, foi pelo seu sucessor D. Manuel nomeado Secretario da Embaixada que mandou a Roma por Tristão da Cunha em 1514. Nasceu na cidade de Évora, e posto que se ignore a data certa do seu nascimento, parece que por boas conjecturas a devemos supor não muito arredada de 1470. Da mesma sorte é desconhecido o ano do óbito, havendo contudo motivo para julgar que assistiu ainda à segunda impressão que da sua crónica se fez em Évora em 1554.
