        Ioannis Gersonis Cancellarii Parisiensis; De Imitatione Christi, Lib IIII

      Apud Horatium Cardon, Lugduni (lyon) 1608 - 0 370;554;87 pages; Jean Charlier de Gerson was a French scholar, educator, reformer, and poet, Chancellor of the University of Paris, a guiding light of the conciliar movement and one of the most prominent theologians at the Council of Constance. He was one of the first thinkers to develop what would later come to be called natural rights theory, and was also one of the first individuals to defend Joan of Arc and proclaim her supernatural vocation as authentic. Width: 3.5" Height: 5.25". Bound in half vellum with marbled paper covered boards. The volume is a Latin edition of the title "The Imitation of Christ." Tradition declares that during his sojourn he translated or adapted from the Latin a work upon eternal consolation, which afterwards became very famous under the title of The Imitation of Christ, attributed to Thomas à Kempis. It has, however, been proven that this work really was written by a Kempis and not by John Gerson or the abbot Gerson. Contents lightly but pleasantly aged. Nice decorative border of Title page.

Rollstempeln und Fleurons auf den Deckeln, reicher Rückenvergoldung, Stehkantenvergoldung und marmor. Schnitt. Das Werk wird gelegentlich (auch in öffentlichen Sammlungen) dem "Machiavelli der Barockzeit und Spritus rector der Katholischen Liga" (Dünnhaupt V, 3734) Caspar Schoppe selbst (hier: Gasperus Scoppius; 1576 Neumarkt/Oberpfalz - 1649 Padua) zugeschrieben, ist aber eine ironische Antwort Heinsius' auf eine Polemik Schoppes gegen eine Schrift eben desselben und auch gegen Joseph Justus Scaliger (Anagramm: "Sacrileg"), der hier den zweiten Teil anonym als "Johannes Rutgers" verfaßte (vgl. Dünnhaupt F3.4). D. Heinsius, hochgelehrter und -geehrter holländicher Historiker (1580-1655), in Leiden Schüler des J. J. Scaliger, zeitlebens von ihm beeinflußt und seinerzeit auch bekannt als schwerer Alkoholiker, wurde zum Gegenstand von Schoppes Spott durch seine Eitelkeit (heute psychiatrisch: hypertrophierter Narzißmus); in vorliegender Schrift (zuerst 1606) und hier erstmal erweitert um Scaligers Satire "Confutatio stultissimae Burdonum fabulae", revanchiert er sich und schreibt in fiktiver Lobrede u. a. von den "moribus Scoppii", wozu dieser in seinem spektakulären Lebenslauf Anlaß und Stoff genügend lieferte (vgl. auch Jöcher II, 1455f), denn Schoppe wechselte Auftraggeber seiner Schriften schneller als mache ihre Wäsche.

Rarissime réunion de deux célèbres livres hollandais du début de XVII siècle : la première édition du premier livre d'emblèmes en hollandais, et la troisième édition du recueil de chansons Nieuwen Lust-Hof. Le premier est une magnifique suite d'emblèmes gravés à thématique amoureuse, tous accompagnés d'un poème en hollandais qui illustre, à son tour, leur signification. Un ouvrage très érudit, avec des mottos aux sources latines, françaises et italiennes, mais aussi de grand impact visuel - ce qui fit son succès. Hensius, ici encore caché sous le nom de plume de Theocritus à Ganda, présentait probablement le travail d'un collectif d'humanistes anonymes de Leiden. Manque 2 gravures et deux poèmes sur 24, la page de titre et tout le premier cahier (texte). Le deuxième ouvrage contient des poèmes érotiques et chansons à boire de poètes hollandais (qui les signèrent uniquement avec un "motto") et, dans la deuxième partie, un poème plus long (de Michiel Vlacq) ; superbes gravures dans le texte, dont le style baroque bien montre la "jeunesse dorée" et les occasions mondaines auxquelles le livre et ses chansons étaient destinés. Texte en deux colonnes, deux pages de titre gravées avec la même illustration d'une compagnie attablée avec deux musiciens. Manque les pages 35-36.

Front board rubbed at edges, and detached, back board lacking, spine very chipped and rubbed, but sewing tight and sound; title-page and last two leaves dusty; light damp-staining to Tttt3 onwards; occasional fingering of corners; last two leaves chipped at head and restored with old paper bearing notes (v. below); 575 errata, and close to 100 additions and omitted notes, some running to upwards of two hundred words, corrected or added in text, in ink, in a small, neat, contemporary hand (v. note), those in the extreme margins insignificantly cropped; slip of old paper tipped onto penultimate leaf, bearing an additional note, written into the text, but not noted in the printed 'Additions', etc.; small cinder hole to blank inner margin of Fff4; small hole in Xxx1 due to an original paper flaw, with loss of part of two words; worming to blank inner margins from Ttt4 to Ffff2, not touching text and for the most part barely visible; in general, however a very nice, crisp copy. An important text, vastly expanded from the original printing of 1604 published in Douay, probably by J. Mogur, which, according to the British Library listing, had only 191pp. There were three issues of the 1608 printing, successively expanded, this, with the first gathering a cancel, and the added leaves 5L3 and 5L4 at the end, being the last and most complete. Further editions were published in 1610, 1615, 1623, and 1624, the last two posthumous, the author having died in 1618. Remarkable for its balance, detail, and a scholarly intent unusual in the period, as also for the several exhaustive bibliographical checklists it contains, it was reprinted as recently as 1970, 1971, and 2013. In the present copy the brief errata have been corrected throughout, including those noted in the last two supplementary leaves, whilst the longer additions and omissions have been added where possible in their place (such as the 222 word addition written on the blank verso of 2K4), and otherwise cross-referenced to the printed sections at the end. The printed alterations run only to p.733, but the notes added in ms. to 5L4v carry the corrections through to p.740, whilst the slip pasted onto 5L2v adds an addition not recorded in the printed text, though corrected in ms. in its place, and there are notes added in ms. to p.747 and to 5D3r that are not otherwise recorded at all. Nor are some other additions, including a ms. index to the sections, that are added to the title-page. All are in the same hand. This, together with the fact that the corrections of errata have been so exhaustive - extending even to minor matters of style, as 'grounded not only' for 'not grounded only' at l.9, p.24, a correction that surely a common reader would not have bothered to make on so densely printed a text - suggest that this is in fact an author's copy, prepared when the book was being printed to enable the preparation of the added leaves of errata, and used by him, probably, as a printer's copy for the editions either of 1610 or 1615. The nature of some of the thumb-marks in some lower corners are in fact suggestive of a printing shop, whilst the author himself in his 'Advertisment' on 5I2r indicates that the errors and additions "being heere exactly gathered by the Author himself," the reader may "expect in the next Edition, or reprinting of this Treatise, such errours and Omissions as haue now escaped, to be corrected, and inserted into their proper places." That this is a printer's copy is supported further by the nature of some of the ms. notes, one at the foot of p.39, for instance, running: "read what is to be here inserted at the end of this booke on yt besyde of the first leaf of Omissions etc. there place yt under Pag.39". The title-page bears an ownership inscription which we have not been able to decipher, written, apparently, in another hand, but which at any rate does not say 'Anderton'. It may have been added by an early owner, or have been that of the printer or typesetter. The work has sometimes been attributed to James Anderton's younger brother, Lawrence, who eventually became a Jesuit, but this is now known not to have been the case. He may have had some part in it, however, for on I5v the author states: "I must needes acknowledge, that a good part of this labour was the collections of a Worshipfull and reuerend Priest, gathered together some few yeares before he entered into holy Orders". In this copy, probably as always, p.146 is mis-numbered '246', and p.360 '560', 2I2 is mis-signed '3'; 2M1 has the catchword '48' instead of '49'; and gathering 4X is foliated, not paginated, without breaking the numbering, pagination being resumed with gathering 4Y. STC 3604.5; STC (2nd edition), 3605; ESTC S233; Alison & Rogers, Catholic Books, 133; the Americas are mentioned on p.521, but it is not in Sabin; COPAC records copies at the British Library, Oxford, York Minster, and Hereford Cathedral only. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

Vélin bruni au dos, manque les fermoirs, charnières intérieures affaiblies. Le premier ouvrage raconte la grâce accordée à Pehu, pour le meurtre du sieur de Halot. Grâce accordée par le privilège de la Fierté, qui permettait à l'église de Rouen de sauver un condamné à mort par an. Le second ouvrage est une réfutation de ce privilège dont l'origine se situe au moyen-âge. C'est au VIIème siècle que Saint Romain, évêque de Rouen, décida de dompter la Gargouille qui désolait les marais de la ville. Il demanda une aide, mais seul un condamné à mort accepta de l'aider. La Gargouille fut capturée et le condamné à mort gracié. Dagobert accorda le privilège à l'évêque de Rouen de gracier un prisonnier par an. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Impresso en Madrid, por Juan de la Cuesta, vendense en casa del Autor à la porteria de S. Felipe, 1608. - in-folio. 4ff. 355pp. (i.e. 349). Plein vélin souple du temps, titre inscrit au dos à l'encre, traces de liens (plats tachés). Edition Originale rarissime de ces tables astronomiques imprimées à Madrid par Juan de la Cuesta, le mythique imprimeur de Don Quichotte. Ce volume était vendu à un prix élevé (cf. Palau) chez l'auteur lui-même, un avocat passionné d'astronomie et partisan de Copernic qui avait installé un observatoire chez lui. Cet ouvrage est important à plusieurs égards: d'une part parce que certains des calculs qu'il contient sont basés sur le nouveau système de Copernic, qui avait la préférence de l'auteur pour être "plus conforme à la vérité et aux observations", ce qui témoigne notamment de la bienveillance suscitée en Espagne par les nouvelles thèses héliocentristes censurées dans les autres pays. D'autre part on y trouve pour la première fois la prévision des éclipses de lune et de soleil incluant des territoires du Nouveau Monde. "These carefully calculated ephemerides for 1607-18 are probably the first in any language to mention specific areas of the New World which are to be darkened by eclipses of the sun or moon. It is of great rarity, being unknown to Thorndike and most other historians and bibliographers of astronomy as well as of Americana. Among the eclipses forecast for the Western Hemisphere are one of the moon, 22 November 1612, shadowing the Magellan Straits, Tierra del Fuego, and neighboring regions; of the sun, 13 October 1613, shadowing Mexico, New Spain as far as California, etc.; of the sun, 11 November 1613, shadowing Brazil and other areas of South America; of the moon, 26 August 1616, shadowing Cuba, New Spain, New France, Florida, Trinidad, Nicaragua, etc. Pacific regions such as the Philippines, New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and even Japan, are also frequently referred to. The object, according to the title-page, is to give eclipse information for Spain and for the East and West Indies occupied by or of interest to Spain" (Schab).

      - Map : 'Brabantiae Descriptio.' (Map of Brabant.) Copper engraved hand coloured map of Brabant. With an inset showing Mechelen and surroundings. Two decorative cartouches, one with scale. Copper engraving on verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Original old hand colouring. Description: From an Italian version of 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum' by Ortelius, ca. 1608.Artists and Engravers: Abraham Ortelius was born 1528 in Antwerp. He studied mathematics, Greek and Latin and travelled a lot across Europe. He established a business in dealing with books and drawing maps. His first remarkable map was a 8 sheet world map in the year 1564, but only three copies have survived. In 1570 he issued the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first modern "Atlas" with uniformly sized maps in a systematic collection. The term "Atlas" was not used until Mercator introduced it 20 years later. Most of the maps in Theatrum have been engraved by Frans Hogenberg. At the time of publication, the atlas was the most expensive book ever printed. Nevertheless it was a big success and around 7000 copies have been printed until 1612 in many editions and six different languages. Beside the Theatrum, Ortelius compiled a series of historical maps and published it in the "Parergon Theatri" which was bound with the Theatrum from 1579 onwards or published separately.

        L'Arianna tragedia... rappresentata in musica nelle Reali Nozze del Sereniss. Principe di Mantova, e della Serenissima Infanta di Savoia

      Mantua, Heirs of Francesco Osanna, 1608. The libretto of Arianna, set to music by Monteverdi (his second opera), and performed on 28 May 1608 in the Sala degli Specchi in the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua, as the first entertainment of extravagant festivities there celebrating the marriage of the heir-apparent, Francesco IV Gonzaga, to Margherita of Savoy. This first edition, printed "Presso gli Heredi di Francesco Osanna Stampator Ducale", may have been distributed before the performance, functioning as advertising for it and as an aid to following the action on stage. Only two copies can be traced in North American libraries ● Chicago, Newberry Library ● Washington, DC, Library of Congress. No other copy has appeared in the auction salerooms for at least fifty years, and the book is thus absent in several of the expected repositories (including British Library, Pierpont Morgan Library, and New York Public Library).

The libretto of Arianna, set to music by Monteverdi (his second opera), and per­formed on 28 May 1608 in the Sala degli Specchi in the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua, as the first entertainment of extravagant festivities there celebrating the marriage of the heir-apparent, Francesco iv Gonzaga, to Margherita of Savoy (the formal wedding had been in Turin on 19 February). 2 Several versions of Arianna's lament, 'Lasciatemi morire', are known, the only music from the opera to survive. 3 [img-2518-left-large_default] The libretto of Monteverdi's second opera, in its rare first edition (reduced from 220 × 158 mm) [img-2519-left-large_default] The corrected readings (in pen and ink) are printed in later editions Arianna was immediately enshrined by contemporary theorists as an exemplar of what opera should be and of how music and poetry should relate to one another; modern scholars regard the work no less highly, but examine it in relation to contemporary rhetorical stud­ies, coming of age rituals, and in the context of gender and sexuality. 4 Upon the success of his first opera, Orfeo, per­formed in Mantua during the carnival of 1607, Monteverdi was commissioned to write music for the Savoy-Gonzaga wedding. 5 Rinuccini delivered a preliminary draft of the libretto to him in October 1607, and Monteverdi evidently wrote most of the music over the following two months. Both com­poser and librettist were in Mantua in February 1608, where they met with the superinten­dent of the festivities, Federico Follino, and others. Their intention was to celebrate the wedding during the Carnival season, however in late February 1608, Monteverdi's pupil, Caterina Martinelli, who was to take the title-role, contracted smallpox and died. 6 A replacement for her was soon found in the comme­dia dell'arte actress Virginia Andreini, and a successful rehearsal of the entire work was con­ducted on 15 March. 7 Rinuccini returned to Mantua in April 1608, apparently to super­vise staging, and possibly to supervise the printing of L'Arianna's libretto and make any last-minute changes requested by the composer. The wedding ceremonies however were repeatedly postponed because of diplomatic difficulties. When the bride arrived in Mantua on 24 May 1608, the festivities began immediately. They also fea­tured a performance of L'Idropica, a comedy by Battista Guarini with intermedi written by Gabriello Chiabrera, and a 'Ballo delle ingrate'. This is the first edition of the libretto, printed 'Presso gli Heredi di Francesco Osanna Stampator Ducale', and very probably distributed before the performance, functioning as advertising for it and as an aid to following the action on stage. Certain readings in the prologue - stressing the importance of the house of Savoy at the expense of the Gonzagas, referring to the bride's father, Carlo Emmanuele i, as 'Carlo immortal' - suggest that it was printed at the expense of the Savoyards. 8 A second edition, presenting the text actually heard at the performance (substituting refer­ences to the bride for those to her father), including stage direc­tions, occurs within Federico Follino's commemo­rative account of the wedding festivities, printed by 'Aurelio, & Lodovico Osanna Stampatori Ducal' (i.e. after the transfer of Francesco's press to those heirs) with a dedication dated 1 July 1608. 9 Further reprints of the libretto at Florence 10 and Venice 11 appeared the same year (the 'Carlo immortal' read­ings are printed in these editions). Until recently, scholars were unaware of the textual differences in the sources, and the text generally relied upon was Follino's second edition, derived moreover not from the original, but from an inaccu­rate transcription first published in 1904 by Angelo Solerti. 12 Only within the last ten years has the text offered in our first edition begun to be studied, an undertaking complicated by its relative inaccessibil­ity (there is no published transcription or facsimile). This first edition is rare: just one other copy has appeared in the auction salerooms during the past fifty years, 13 and the book is thus absent in several of the expected repositories (including British Library, Pierpont Morgan Library, and New York Public Library).

        Algebra.

      Rome: Bartholomeo Zannetti, 1608. First edition, author's presentation copy to the Jesuit College of Tivoli, of this rare and important text by "the most influential teacher of the Renaissance" (Sarton), "commonly considered one of the last and fullest syntheses of cossic algebra" (Feingold, Jesuit Science and the Republic of Letters, p. 63). Clavius "was one of the very first to use parentheses to express aggregation of terms... His Algebra marks the appearance in Italy of the German plus (+) and minus (-) signs and the algebraic symbols used by Stifel" (DSB). Only six copies located in auction records in the last 60 years, and no other author's presentation copy. It is from this book that many of the leading mathematicians of Europe learned their algebra over the next several decades. "Leibnitz wrote a letter to Bernoulli in 1703, indicating that he learned algebra from Clavius' book. As a child, I had studied the elementary algebra of one Lancius, and later that of Clavius" (Sigismondi, p. 232). Again, "Clavius was a key figure in Descartes' earliest (perhaps even initial) study of mathematics. For instance, from a letter of March 1646 written by John Pell to Charles Cavendish, we have good reason to believe that ca. 1616, while a student at La Flèche, Descartes read Clavius's Algebra (1608). Reporting on his meeting with Descartes in Amsterdam earlier that same year, Pell writes in particular that "[Descartes] says he had no other instructor for Algebra than ye reading of Clavy Algebra above 30 years ago"" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). "Mersenne, Descartes' friend and confidant, would advise reading Clavius' Algebra, for he said that there one would always find interesting questions" (Udías, Jesuit Contribution to Science, p. 7). Clavius' work followed the textbook tradition of algebra of the Renaissance. Among his sources he explicitly mentions Diophantus, Jordanus of Nemore, Cardano, Tartaglia, Bombelli, and, perhaps most interestingly, Pedro Nuñes, who is known to have taught Clavius at Coimbra. "Clavius' Algebra may be placed historically at the intersection point of the tradition of cossist algebra and Diophantus' Arithmetica. Having adopted the algebraic symbolism of Michael Stifel, Clavius could represent by symbols more than one unknown quantity. Besides, he sometimes denoted certain numbers by signs, as Jordanus's De numeris datis had done in the thirteenth century. On the other hand, his Algebra was basically freed from the practical tradition of algebra. Clavius re-evaluated algebra as a respectable discipline, invoking the ancient authority of Diophantus and such Renaissance forerunners as Regiomontanus and Bombelli. "Nevertheless Clavius' treatise was a typical product of the sixteenth century textbook tradition of algebra even though it appeared at the beginning of the seventeenth century. It surely provided rather sophisticated techniques for solving both arithmetical and geometrical problems, but it is an open question whether or not it is a work leading straight to the idea of algebraic analysis, which made its full-scale appearance with Viète's In artem analyticem isagoge of 1591" (Sasaki, Descartes's Mathematical Thought, p. 81). Viète was mentioned in Chapter XII, 'On the extraction of roots which the rule of algebra is concerned with.' "Clavius was informed of the existing knowledge on the solution of the cubic equation through Cardano's Ars magna (1545) and Bombelli's Algebra (1572) ... Clavius also has certain information on Viète's method probably developed in the latter's De numerosa potestatum ad exegesin resolution. Viète's treatise on the numerical solution of the cubic and biquadratic equations was published in 1600 under the editorship of Marino Ghetaldi, a disciple of both Clavius and Viète" (ibid., p. 75). Cajori discusses Clavius' notations at some length (A History of Mathematical Notations, vol.1, pp. 151-154). He notes that it was Clavius who, in his Algebra of 1608, introduced the notations + and − for addition and subtraction, already used in Germany by Michael Stifel, to Italy. Clavius explains that he prefers these two signs, instead of the letters P and M commonly used at the time for plus and minus, to avoid confusion with the letters used to represent numbers. Clavius (p. 159) writes products of sums of integer multiples of square roots much as we would write the multiplication today, the only difference being that the square root was represented by the radical sign followed by a script letter (probably r). For an unknown quantity, Clavius used a cursive letter (apparently x) and for additional unknowns, he used A, B, etc. Thus, he writes 3x + 4A, 4B − 3A where we might write 3x + 4y, 4z − 3y. Sigismondi has framed Clavius' contribution within the context of an expanding early-modern world and the crucial role played by the Jesuits in the development of science in China: "Clavius' contributions to algebra, geometry, astronomy and cartography are enormous. He paved the way, with his texts and his teaching for 40 years in the Collegio Romano, for the development of these sciences ... all around the world, along the commercial paths of Portugal, which become also the missionary paths for the Jesuits. Clavius' books were translated into Chinese by one of his students, Matteo Ricci ..., and his influence for the development of science in China was crucial. The Jesuits became skilled astronomers, cartographers and mathematicians thanks to the example and the impulse given by Clavius. This success was possible also thanks to the contribution of Clavius in the definition of the Ratio Studiorum, the program of studies, in the Jesuit colleges, so influential for the whole history of modern Europe and all western World" (Sigismondi). The centrality of Clavius' influence on the curricula of Jesuit colleges worldwide makes our copy, a gift of the author to the Jesuit Collegium Tyburtinum, all the more desirable.

        Compendio delle sontuose feste fatte l'anno MDCVIII nella città di Mantova per le reali nozze del Serenissimo Principe D. Francesco Gonzaga con la Serenissima Infante Margherita di Savoia

      4to (194x140 mm). [8], 149, [1 blank] pp. and 1 folding engraved plate (Disegno della battaglia navale et del castello de fuochi trionfali fatti..., 230x350 mm). Signatures: [π]4 A-T4. Leaf [π]4 is a blank. Lacking the final blank leaf and a second folding plate (Dissegno del carro...), which is often missing. Contemporary flexible vellum with inked title on spine (bottom of spine and large portion of front panel restored, lacking ties). Book block partly detached from the front cover, lacking the lower outer corner of the front flyleaf, some marginal foxing, a few stains to leaves 46-49, but all in all a very good, genuine copy.First edition, dedicated by Federico Follino to Margherita Gonzaga, the sister of the spouse. The dedication is dated 1 July 1608. The chaplain Federico Follino was responsible for the design and organization of the festivities for the marriage of Francesco Gonzaga and Margaret of Savoy. The plate shows the mock naval battle and the castle built on a platform in the middle of the Mantua lake, work of the engineer Daniele Bertazzolo.The description, among other things, contains the full text of Ottavio Rinuccini's Arianna (pp. 29-66), set to music by Claudio Monteverdi, at the time choirmaster of the duke of Mantua, and performed during the festivities. Rinuccini, invited from Florence, had written the libretto on purpose for the occasion. The account describes in detail the staging of the opera, which lasted two hours and half. The libretto of the Arianna was published as a separate text three times in the same year, 1608, at Florence, Mantua, and Venice.After that, were staged the Idropica (pp. 72-99), a comedy by Battista Guarini, with the intermezzi by Gabriello Chiabrera and a music prologue by Monteverdi, and Il ballo delle ingrate ('The Ballet of the Ungrateful Ladies', pp. 129-134), a semi-dramatic ballet written by Rinuccini and set to music by Monteverdi. The representation of the Ifigenia (pp. 142-149) by Alessandro Striggio closed the celebrations."The 1608 luxurious feasts for the marriage of prince Francesco to Infanta Margherita of Savoia maybe the most impressive expression of Vincenzo Gonzaga' taste and cultural-political design. Federico Follino provides us with a precious Compendio of them, which includes all the texts of the spectacles and two plates, which illustrate the naumachia planned by Bertazzolo. By analyzing Follino' text the festival and spectacular events of the entire cycle were reconstructed; furthermore it is noticed how the court was most attentive to all the spectacular novelties and excellences like the 'commedia musicale' or the ballet as autonomous genre, as well as to the more known spectacular varieties. It is also pointed out how a great importance was attributed to the scenic aspects and the stage-designing skill of the time" (A. Mignatti, Compendio delle sontuose feste..., in: R. Brunelli, ed., "Vincenzo I Gonzaga 1562-1612. Il fasto pel potere", Mantua, 2012, pp. 159-162).This festival book is extremely rare on the market. Of the recorded copies, only a few have both plates.Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\MUS\0319364; Sartori, Libretti italiani a stampa, 5974; Watanabe-O'Kelly & Simon, Festivals and ceremonies, 463.
