Erste Ausgabe. Streitschrift des Lutheraners und Papst- und Jesuitengegners Heilbrunner. - Die Geißlerbewegung entstand 1260 in Italien und breitete sich rasch aus bis nach Deutschland. Sie erschien danach in mehreren Wellen, meist ritualisiert und gepaart mit apokalyptischen Vorstellungen bis sie 1349 durch die Kirche verboten wurde und in der Folge mehr im Untergrund weiterlebte. Die erste größere Auseinandersetzung mit den Protestanten fand anlässlich einer Geißlerprozession in Augsburg 1605 statt. Der Geißlerzug fand mit allen Leidensstationen in Bild und Darstellung statt und geriet zu einem politischen Manifest, nebenbei zu einem Kriegszug gegen die Lutheraner, der mit der Mächtigkeit seiner Bilder auch auf die Konversion zum katholischen Glauben abzielte. Vor allem der Augsburger Pfarrer Melchior Voltz und Heilbrunner mit dem vorliegenden Werk traten an die Spitze der polemischen Auseinandersetzung auf Seiten der Protestanten. - Heilbrunner 1548-1616 war ein Theologe aus Ebertingen in Württemberg, zuletzt Prälat in Bebenhausen. Er war ca. 30 Jahre Hofprediger zu Pfalz-Neuburg. - Sauber und sehr gut erhalten. Versand D: 5,00 EUR Jesuiten Religionskritik

SANSOVINO FRANCESCO
presso Altobello Salicato, 1607. Cm. 20,5, cc. (8) 200. Marchio tip. al frontespizio, testatine e alcuni capilettera xil. Testo in corsivo ed edizione ancora tipicamente cinquecentesca. Bella legatura novecentesca di foggia antica, in mezza pelle verde con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso; ampie punte e carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Trascurabile segno di tarlo limitato alle ultime due carte, con interessamente di alcune lettere. Qualche sporadica fioritura, peraltro ottimo esemplare, carte in stato di non comune freschezza. Francesco Sansovino (1521-1583), letterato e poligrafo, fu al centro della vita culturale del Cinquecento italiano. Fu autore, curatore o traduttore di ben 93 opere in meno di trent'anni di produzione letteraria. Quest'opera, che ebbe grande successo e circolazione, presenta notizie d'interesse storico, geografico, politico, economico e sociale riguardanti vari stati d'Europa. Solo le notizie su Ragusa, Genova e Lucca sono opera diretta dell'A., le altre furono invece rielaborazioni, traduzioni, o brani semplicemente mutuati dalle opere di Paolo Giovio, Gaspare Contarini, Alfonso Ulloa, Leandro Muzio, Ottaviano Vestrio ed altri. DI particolare interesse è l'ultimo capitolo, di fatto una libera traduzione dell'Utopia di Thomas More, "Del Governo della Repubblica di Utopia". Cfr. Iccu; Edizioni giuridiche antiche in lingua italiana, I, 1, p. 208..

Farinacci Prospero
Sumptibus Horatij Cardon, 1607. 2 parti in un volume in-folio (388x252mm), pp. (12), 495, (81) di indice; (8), 139, (27) di ulteriore indice; legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titolo calligrafato su tassello cartaceo su dorso a 4 nervi. Titolo manoscritto al taglio di piede. Frontespizi in rosso e nero con giglio giuntino. Testo su due colonne. Sparsi aloni, bruniture e fioriture, una mancanza marginale alle pp. 56-57 della seconda parte e sparsi lavori di tarlo alla stessa seconda parte. Antiche firme (una cassata) al primo frontespizio. Edizione lionese di questo repertorio di responsi giuridici su varie questioni di diritto penale, seguite da una raccolta di decisioni del Tribunale della Rota Romana in materia criminale. Il Farinacci (Roma, 1544-ivi, 1618), illustre penalista, fu Consigliere della Sacra Consulta su nomina di Clemente VIII e Procuratore Generale Fiscale della Camera Apostolica su designazione di Paolo V e giudice inflessibile, noto per la facilità con cui comminava condanne a morte. Noto per aver difeso Beatrice Cenci nel suo famosissimo processo (un altro famigerato processo coninvolse poi lo stesso Farinacci, con l'accusa di sodomia, poi caduta nel nulla solo per la grazia accordatagli da Clemente VIII), i suoi trattati giuridici (primo tra tutti la Praxis et theorica criminalis) condensarono brillantemente le codificazioni del diritto penale sino ad allora elaborate in occidente, facendo scuola per molti decenni, anche se gli studiosi moderni hanno ridimensionato il suo apporto alla storia della giurisprudenza (Franco Cordero lo ha definito … [Click Below for Full Description]

Garnier (1545-1590) è senza dubbio il primo grande tragico francese. La maggior parte dei suoi soggetti sono tratti dai tempi antichi, ma i suoi ultimi due pezzi sono in primo luogo una tragedia cristiana e l'altra una tragedia ispirata da Ariosto. Amico di poeti delle Pleiadi che celebrano apertamente (contiene le tragedie nelle parti preliminari di poesie Ronsart e Belleau, BAIF o anche poesie firmato tre), è stato meno apprezzato dal tribunale. Il suo senso della tragedia è ereditato da Seneca e Euripide dove il senso tragico dipende non tanto sulle azioni che la parola sovrano. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition collective, rare, des huit pièces de l'auteur, après la première collective complète en 1585.

RITTER, Francis (died 1641).
[Nuremberg: Christoff Lochner, in Verlegung Balthasar Camoxen], 1607. Single sheet, float-mounted and framed (11 x 13 2/8 inches; 23 x 24 4/8 inches). A fine engraved map of the world by P. Troeschel on a gnomonic projection from the North Pole, this map is the central vignette surrounded by 10 others, the title in a frame surrounding the top central vignette of a wind dial, dated 1607, all surrounded by a decorative floriated border. FIRST EDITION, AND AN EXTREMELY RARE AND VERY UNUSUAL MAP, showing the world projected from the North Pole as if it were the table of a sundial, with the land masses drawn to scale in proportion to their distance from the Pole. The result is a very distorted, though mathematically correct, projection, which can be used to locate local sun time. First published as here in Ritter's "Speculum solis; das ist, Sonnenspiegel. Beschreibung unnd unterricht, derer in das kupffer gestochenen sonnenuhren, in welcher der gantze lauff der sonnen, unnd dess mondten durch deroselben schatten zu sehen ist", in the later edition of 1610 the map is much larger and was subsequently re-issued in that format. The other vignettes depict alternative ways in which other civilisations have recorded the passage of time. Shirley 270; Woodward, David.

"This made him decide that he had stretched his luck far enough and that he had better stay home" (Masselman page 116). The narrative of this voyage was written by Roelof Roelofsz and was translated by Artus for both the German and Latin editions of De Bry. The second is Jan Harmensz Bree's account of the voyage to the East Indies in 1602-1604, under the command of Admirals Sebald De Weert and Pietersz to Ceylon, where de Weert met his death at the hands of the Maharajah of Kandy.

Edward Topsell
ondon- William Jaggard, 1607. A very scarce first edition of this illustrated bestiary. Collated: Lacking pages A1-6, B1, B3-5, C2-3, D6, FF1-6, I5, M1, X2, 3H4, 3Y1-8. Title page in facsimile. Lacking the plate of Durer's Rhinoceros. Pages often misnumbered, as indicated above. A fascinating work, scarce in any form and containing many of the illustrations for which the work is famous. Edward Topsell was an English cleric and author. He is best remembered for this work and a secondary volume, The History of Serpents. Topsell's work covers both real and mythological animals, including a striking plate of the Manticore, a creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man. Topsell was not a naturalist himself, and his worked was derived from the authority of earlier works. In doing so, Topsell repeats various amusing and now obviously fantastic features of animals, including the misbelief that Apes are scared of snails, and that Elephants worship the sun and the moon. Likewise, Topsell includes accounts of mythological creatures, showing only some scepticism when it comes to the existence of the Hydra. With the bookplate of Humphry Primatt, a clergyman and advocate for animals. Primatt wrote on moral issues in natural philosophy, attacking unnecessary cruelty to animals including that inflicted through hunting and other sports. Primatt's argument, founded in the divine goodness of God, argued that as all animals were created by God, justice must extend to them as it does to humans. An interesting provenance for a work of this nature. Despite its defects, this is an attra … [Click Below for Full Description]
