      Mexico: En la Emprenta de Diego Lopez Daualos, 1607.. [16],562,[2]pp. 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 Sir Thomas Phillipps copy. 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 " 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.

      Antwerp: Hieronymi Verdussen, 1607. First Edition. Hardcover.

        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.

        Vita D. N. Iesu Christi: Ex verbis Evangeliorum in ipsismet concinnata. Per R.P. Bartholomaeum Riccium Societatis Iesu " Castgrofidando

      Rome: Bartholome Zanetti, 1607. First edition. 8vo. [8], 160 leaves, including engraved title, 160 full- page engravings; and with 2 folding engraved maps (HOLY LAND & JERUSALEM) tipped in at rear (Jerusalem map detached). 20th-century full blue morocco, covers with triple gilt filet borders, gilt spine, raised bands, marbled endpapers, gilt turn-ins, a.e.g., by "I. 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.

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.

Front free endpaper with extensive notes about Vaenius, written in Latin in a late 18th century hand. Landwehr, "Low Countries" 817; Praz, p. 523; De Vries 35; Hoe, "Emblems," p. 125. Front joint split (wider at very top and bottom), but the cover tightly attached on four vellum cords, title page with small cluster of tiny brown dots, a half dozen leaves with headline just cut into, final blank with most of another leaf adhering to its verso, isolated smudges and other trivial imperfections, but QUITE AN EXCELLENT COPY, the original binding solid, the volume clean inside and out, and with the striking engravings richly impressed. This is the uncommon first edition of an emblem book with fine illustrations that take their texts from the works--particularly the "Satires"--of the Roman poet Horace, the son of an ex-slave and the friend of the emperor Augustus. The moderate philosophy and wry humor of his poems, especially the "Satires," lend themselves to illustration by emblems that point out a moral or highlight a human foible. The engravings here sometimes incorporate allegorical figures, such as Death or Time, but also include genre scenes, their settings and costumes sometimes Roman, sometimes faintly Dutch from the time of the book's printing. The engravings are highly detailed and quite skillfully executed, usually including landscapes or architecture in the background. Each image illustrates Latin quotations appearing on the facing page, the topmost from Horace, the rest, supporting the sentiment, from other Roman authors. Otho Vaenius (or Otto van Veen, 1558-1629) of Leyden studied art in Italy and counted Rubens among his pupils. He painted portraits and religious scenes, as well as constructed triumphal arches and designed illustrations such as these, sometimes using them for works he himself composed. Our copy is from the state of the work with the final blank (Dd4, not called for by Landwehr), with pages 48 and 152 numbered correctly, and with no emblems pasted over. The book is not common: ABPC lists seven copies at auction during the last 35 years.

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." [Wiki].

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).

["Of Marcus Valerius Martialis, the most prolific, if not the most excellent of epigrammatists, not much is known, save that he was born in the ancient kingdom of Aragon in Spain in AD 43. He went to Rome and was one of the Tribunes under the empire of Titus and Domitian, who held the poet in high esteem. He was displeased with the government of Trajan, and offended by his neglect of literature he returned to Bibilis, his native town in his 56th year. He soon after married and continued to reside their until his death." From Scribners Magazine August 1874.] The more usual imprint for this book is Michel Sonnius not Claude Morell which is the scarcer one.However it was not uncommon in this period that publishers and printers shared the costs of printing and often unsold quires were bought or simply used by business partners. This will explain the different title page for the same edition; Claude Morel and Michel Sonnius also had their printing shops in the same road, facilitating in this way business exchanges.

Traylen for; Christopher Henry Beaumont Pease, Lord Wardington (1924-2005), Library of Important Atlases and Geographies. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE LARGE-PAPER COPY, THE FIRST EDITION WITH COUNTY MAPS and the last edition to be published by Camden himself. "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his "Britannia", primarily topographical, is the first book which shows... the need to evaluate sources" ("Printing and the Mind of Man" 10). The first survey of Great Britain county by county and the first study of Roman Britain as perceived in the landscape of 16th-century Britain. First published in Latin in 1586, the first edition in English in 1610. "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his "Britannia", primarily topographical, is the first book which shows... the need to evaluate sources" ("Printing and the Mind of Man" 10). The first survey of Great Britain county by county and the first study of Roman Britain as perceived in the landscape of 16th-century Britain. At twenty Camden left Oxford with no degree "no known financial resources, patron, or position. For four years the record is silent on how this young man with no publications and no degree occupied himself. Unsubstantiated tradition has him travelling Britain, perhaps under the patronage of Gabriel Goodman, dean of Westminster, in search of antiquities and topographical and historical material that found its way into the 'Britannia'. The economic and social realities of his time were such as to make Camden in large measure the product of cultural institutions, and his disappearance during these years between known institutional affiliations is in itself interesting. Camden's appointment in 1575 as second master at Westminster School returns him to the public landscape. He spent twenty-two years at the school that was emerging as academically one of the most prestigious in the kingdom...not only was he an effective educator and administrator, but he also travelled, collected material for and wrote the 'Britannia', brought it through its first four enlarged editions, and compiled a Greek grammar... In 1576 he inherited his father's property in Staffordshire which provided him with additional financial security. As early as 1577 he came to the attention of the great geographer Abraham Ortelius, then travelling in England, who encouraged Camden in his national enterprise, and whose work provided him with a model for topographical and historical writing. Further encouraged and supported by Dean Gabriel Goodman and his nephew Godfrey Goodman, Camden travelled extensively in pursuit of topographical and antiquarian information: in 1578 through Suffolk and Norfolk, and in 1582 to Yorkshire and Lancashire. Working with a knowledge of the current continental methods and the example and friendship of English scholars such as Alexander Nowell, William Lambarde, his schoolmate Richard Carew, and others, he developed his own approach to empirical research into topographical and historical study through travel, archival scholarship, and the use of original documents, along with the deployment of linguistic and philological evidence and artefacts for interpreting historical and cultural events. "As his work advanced Camden's reputation spread, well before the eventual publication of the 'Britannia' in 1586. Scholars from across Europe, both protestant and Roman Catholic, included a meeting with Camden on their itinerary when they came to England. Geographers such as Gerardus Mercator, lawyers such as Alberico Gentili, scholars and poets such as the Hungarian Parmenius, and statesmen such as Barnabé Brisson, president of the parlement of Paris, sought Camden's company, advice, or views. His work for the 'Britannia', then, was conducted in the field, through study and collaboration, and through research into original sources, both printed and manuscript. "Much anticipated, the 'Britannia' made its début on 2 May 1586, Camden's thirty-fifth birthday; the squat octavo volume was dedicated to Lord Burghley. Of Camden's published work the 'Britannia' has had the greatest and most lasting impact. It received immediate recognition when it appeared, and its successive, enlarged editions of 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 (dedicated to Queen Elizabeth) and 1607 (dedicated to King James) and its English translation of 1610 by Philemon Holland attest to its popularity... By 1607, the year of its last Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Saxton and Norden, and engravings of coins, monuments, and topographical sites, it had evolved into an impressive and editorially sophisticated work of scholarship. It continued to be edited and translated during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the major editions being those of Gibson in 1695 and 1722, and Richard Gough in 1786 and 1806" (Wyman H. Herendeen for DNB). Chubb XVIII; Skelton 5; STC 4508. Catalogued by Kate Hunter..

      Basel, Ludwig Königs, 1607. 4to. Sewn as issued in later blank wrappers. Engraved ornamental title showing 2 geometers with instruments, on verso large engraved coat of arms (Henry Prince of Wales). (8),65,(2) pp. With 20 large engravings in the text. Printed on good paper, fine and clean.. First edition, though a Latin translation appeared at the same time. Zubler was a prolific mathematician and instrument-maker in Zürich, and in this work he describes a triangulation instrument (depicted on a full-page engraving), invented by himself, and shows its use in different situations of practical surveying and military use in artistic settings. The triangulation instrument was able to provide measures for length, width, height and angles all at once, to be read on the scales on the baseline etc. The instrument has two arms and a baseline. By fixing the angle between the baseline and the pivoted arm, setting the sliding sight on the baseline arm to the scaled length of the baseline itself, and finally, from the second station, sighting across the two arms while moving the second sliding sight into alignment with the first sight and the target, the side of the triangle on the ground will be given with the position of the second sight, adjusted to the scale. The provision of a degree scale on a semicircular plate at the pivot permits other techniques involving angle measurements or setting the arms at right angles.Cockle: 947 (Latin ed.) - Poggendorff II:1420

Aloni più o meno lievi interc. nel t., ma certam. un buon esemplare.

First editions, both published in the same year, of two highly esteemed commented editions of Boethius' seminal "The Consolation of Philosophy", which together make up an important contribution to Boethius-scholarship and the understanding of this most central text of both Antiquity, Christianity, and the Middle Ages. In fact, the collection of the two present editions, collected and bound at the time of their appearance, almost constitute a singular pre-edition of the famous and important so-called "Variorum Boethius", which appeared more than 60 years later, in 1671, and unites the commentaries and notes of Bernartius and Sitzmann. The 1671 edition, which was printed in Leiden, became very popular. According to Dibdin, "The first edition is a very good one, and is emphatically styled, "the Variorum Boethius."... The notes, chiefly by Sitzmanus and Bernartius, are numerous and pertinent." (II:352-53).The beautiful and elegant Plantin-edition constitutes one of the most important commented editions of Boethius' work. It is renowned for Bernartius' excellent and extensive commentaries and the correctness of the text.The Marnius-edition is of great value due to the learned commentaries and notes by Sitzmann, which include an apparatus of classical and post-classical sources.It is of great interest to see the two works collected in this manner, many decades before the commentaries by the two renowned scholars were collected officially and printed together. Apart from the difference in notes and commentaries, the two works complement each other in other respects as well, contributing to the value of having them together. For instance, the Plantin-edition contains Julianus Martianus Rota's "Life of Boethius", whereas the Marnius-edition contains Theodore Peolman's foudational study on Boethian metre and verse.As such, the present book unites two works of the most excellent complimentary value, greatly contributing to the understanding of one of the most important, influential, widely discussed and studied works of Antiquity and the Middle Ages. As a philosopher Boethius (480 - ca. 525) stands tall in the middle between Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Time-wise he clearly belongs to late Antiquity, but he is a Christian and he writes in Latin. Still being a Christian, he also comes to represent the actual centre of a tradition that goes directly back to Plotinus and thereby indirectly back to Plato and Aristotle. Boethius was imprisoned and later executed, accused of treason against the gothic regime as well as of sorcery, though he himself claims that it was caused by his political activity, where he as a court official defended the weak; caused by his uprightness, his enemies were too many. The most plausible explanation is that Theoderic doubted the loyalty of the Roman aristocracy and thereby especially the frank Boethius. While in prison, Boethius wrote this his main work, which is without a doubt the most widely read, commented and influential of his works. The work is atypical for the time and is written as a philosophical conversation between Boethius himself and the goddess of Philosophy. Though always a Christian, in this work he is first and foremost a philosopher, which is why there are many allusions to pagan neo-platonism, however during the Middle Ages all passages of this work were very popularly interpreted in accordance with Christianity. Few people have been of so seminal character to medieval philosophy and religion as Boethius; perhaps only Aristotle himself and Augustine were more influential and important. Few books were so widely read during the Middle Ages as the Consolation of Philosophy, and virtually no book has been as major a source of ancient philosophy in the early Middle Ages as this one. As well of being of great textbook value this work has inspired and influenced numerous religious, philosophical and literary writers. "For some writers, such as the Middle English poet, Chauser, the "Consolation" seems to have provided a model for writing about serious issues in a way which presupposes no commitment to Christianity, a philosophical precedent for the use of pagan setting in a literary fiction." (John Marenbon, Medieval Philosophy, 1998, p. 24).With the death of Boethius came also the end of ancient tradition of philosophy in the Latin West, though through his writings, the influence of this philosophical tradition was preserved during the Middle Ages and through to the Renaissance and early modern times.

        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.
