Inocêncio V, 306: ?Luis Mendes de Vasconcellos, Commendador da Ordem de Christo, Capitão mór nas armadas do Oriente, onde militou muitos annos, e Governador de Angola pelos de 1617 a 1620. Foi natural de Lisboa, e não de Evora, como pareceu ao P. Francisco da Fonseca na sua Evora gloriosa, pag. 413. Ignoram se precisamente as datas em que nascêra e morrêra, porém sabe se que foi pae de Joanne Mendes de Vasconcellos, que tanto se distinguiu por seus feitos militares nas guerras da acclamação. São interlocutores n'esta obra um Politico, que segundo a interpretação do auctor da Bibliotheca Historica de Portugal (pag. 108 da segunda edição) se crê ser o Conde da Castanheira, ministro d'el rei D. João III e avô materno, dizem, de Luis Mendes: um Soldado, em quem pretendem ver Martim Affonso de Sousa, ex governador da India: e um Philosopho, que é tido, com razão ou sem ella, pelo bispo D. Jeronymo Osorio, a cuja instancia se accrescenta que fôra composto o Sitio de Lisboa. Quanto a esta ultima parte, parece me supposição mais que gratuita, para não dizer abertamente falsa. Osorio morreu, como é sabido, em 1580, e Mendes de Vasconcellos dando á luz a sua obra em 1608, explica se no prologo em termos que, se não me engano, indicam ser a composição d'ella de mui recente data. O nosso illustre economista, o sr. A. de O. Marreca, em um artigo inserto no Archiro Universal, tomo III, sob o titulo João de Barros, Luis Mendes de Vasconcellos e o commercio da India (reproducção, me parece, de outro que publicára no Panorama (1842) pag. 378 e 379) fala de Vasconcellos e da sua obra com subido louvor, referindo se ao modo por que n'esta discursou ácerca das conquistas da India, e contestou a sua utilidade. «O seu bom siso, e alguns capitulos da Politica de Aristoteles, revelaram lhe verdades que só muitos annos depois foram apregoadas e desenvolvidas pela eschola italiana, e pelos economistas inglezes e francezes (Arch. Univ. tomo III, pag. 82).? Location/localizacao: raros

      [Amsterdam]. 1608.. [36]pp. Small quarto. Disbound. Very minor worming in gutter margin. Very minor foxing. Very good. Willem Usselinx, the founder of the Dutch West Indies Company and the most influential merchant of his day, argues here that the war with Spain must continue in order to preserve religious toleration and commerce in the Netherlands. He discusses the possibility that the war with Spain might spread to the West or East Indies, destroying trade, and he mentions the conspiracy of Lord Cobham and Walter Raleigh to murder King James. Stevens calls this pamphlet "Excessively rare.

      Munich Adam Berg 1608. - 4to, 167, (1) blank pp. Bound in later marbled paper over boards, covers worn, inner hinge cracked but firm, inked Jesuit library inscription dated 1700 on title, small wormholes on title, minor foxing throughout, an unusually crisp, well-preserved copy for German 17th-century books, excellent. Rare first German edition of this influential Jesuit letterbook from China describing Matteo Ricci’s acceptance at the court of Peking and marking a shift in European perceptions of China from "a view of China as seen from Macao to a view of China from within." (de Paula Nogueira, p. 426) Unlike many Jesuit letters which were primarily concerned with listing conversionary exploits, Pantoja’s letter is a genuine travel narrative, chronicling the trip from Nanjing to Peking up the Grand Canal, laced with colorful descriptions of local customs, food and dress. It is also notable for its deep respect for the Chinese civilization, which would be the trademark of the Jesuit enterprise in China. The Spanish Jesuit Diego de Pantoja (1571-1618) arrived in Macao in 1599, and was soon sent to join Matteo Ricci in Nanjing, where he had established himself after his first failed attempt to reach Peking. In 1600, they set out together on another attempt to reach the emperor in the Forbidden City. On the way, they were briefly arrested, but released upon condition to send some Western-style clocks and oil paintings to the emperor. They arrived in Peking in January of 1601 and were well received. Although Ricci and Pantoja never met the emperor in person, a lively if at times comical exchange ensued, the social intricacies of which Pantoja relates in detail. There were rival eunuchs who acted as go-betweens but tried to use the foreigners to score points against each other, learned mandarins, who came to discuss mathematics and astronomy, and the merely curious who came to gawk at Pantoja’s blue eyes. "As soon as Ricci and Pantoja settled down, they drew a stream of mandarin and literati visitors curious to see the exotic goods they had brought to present to the emperor. According to one of the first accounts from the capital, the missionaries entertained a mandarin from the Lipu (Ministry of Rites, the agency in charge of dealing with foreigners) by demonstrating that "the Sun is larger than the Earth and the Moon smaller." ( ) Ricci’s colleague Pantoja contributed to the renown of the missionaries with his blue eyes alone: ‘The Chinese find them very mysterious, and normally say that my eyes spy where to find precious stones and the like claiming even that they have characters written inside them.’" (Brockey, pp.49-50)When the clocks, which they had given the emperor, stopped working, the Jesuits offered to train four eunuchs in their upkeep. By request of the emperor, life-size portraits of Ricci and Pantoja were painted which bore little resemblance to them but, unlike them, gained an audience with the emperor. Impressed with the oil paintings, the emperor asked for more images, particularly of European kings, as he was curious to see their manner of dress. The Jesuits sent him the only such image they had, a painting of the King of Spain, the Holy Roman Emperor and the Pope, all kneeling under a cross. For good measure, they added a plan of El Escorial and a view of St Mark’s in Venice. This exchange, carried on over the course of three months, succeeded in granting the Jesuits the favor they had come to ask: they were allowed to open a residence in Peking, in the heart of China."A central goal of Matteo Ricci’s strategy for securing the mission had been accomplished. With a Jesuit ensconced at Peking – by order of the emperor himself – the reputation of the Society of Jesus in China woul [Attributes: First Edition]

"Quizá sea este libro de La pícara Justina la obra literaria más extraña e inquietante que salió de las prensas en el Siglo de Oro: hay misterio en quién fue su verdadero autor y de sus intenciones al escribirlo; da a Don Quijote -que aún no había visto la luz- el mismo tratamiento de libro-personaje consolidado que aplica a Celestina y Lázaro de Tormes; sus lecturas -no bastará la primera- dejan al lector desconcertado: si le dijeran que lo escribió un bufón, lo creería; si un loco, también; si un genio, ¿por qué no?

        Vocabulario de la lengua general de todo el Peru llamada lengua Quichua, o del Inca

      Entre los primeros 50 libros impresos en Lima, el Vocabulario de Holguin. 1608. Ciudad de los Reyes (Lima). Francisco del Canto. In 8vo (204 mm x 145mm). 1 [blanca] + 3 [de 4] ff.+ 375. Pergamino de época, arrugado y sucio, en estricta condición original, claramente sujeto a uso en algún momento, sin embargo muy atractiva encuadernación que retiene su apariencia sobria y solida. Portada con margen externo restaurado afectando pocas palabras y montada, mancha de agua leve y amarronamiento, a pesar de esto, el papel continua fresco y fuerte. Los primeros impresos de Lima de por si son raros; los ocurridos en los primeros 30 años de la imprenta mas aun, pero el factor que realmente exacerba la rareza es la utilidad que se le dio a la obra. Es este destino de enseñanza que diferencia a los vocabularios de virtualmente cualquier otra obra impresa. La necesidad de comunicarse y entender la lengua de los nativos fue desde un principio preocupación de los Jesuitas, quienes entendieron que de la rapidez con que lograran hacerse entender dependería directamente la evangelización de los Indios. Dentro de los vocabularios, el de Gonzalez de Holguin de la lengua Quichua ocupa un puesto de honor, siendo uno de los mas extensos y estudiados sobre la lengua Quichua; es también el mas voluminoso publicado hasta entonces. Se trata del 42 libro impreso en Lima y uno de solo dos impresos en 1608 (según Medina). "Muy raro" (Sabin). La obra se compone de dos volúmenes, que a pesar de cada uno ser completo en si mismo, se hallan normalmente juntos y son complementarios. Se ofrece solo el primer volumen. Cuando juntos, son de extrema rareza y son considerados piezas muy importantes de Americanas. Muy raro, Brunet dice "''non moins rare que le precedent" en referencia a la Gramatica de Holguin, a la que describe como "Livre fort rare". Tanto Gallardo, como Leon Pinelo y Alonson de Ovalle escribieron sobre el autor elogiándolo. "Fue muy aficionado a las misiones de los indios, de cuyas lenguas supo dos, y la una con tanta perfeccion, que compuso un Arte y Vocabulario, el mejor y mas perfecto que hasta agora ha salido" (Alonso de Ovalle. JCB, 52. Brunet, 11998. Medina, Lima, 42. Vargas Ugarte, 53. Sabin, 32495.

        L'Eneide di Virgilio del commendatore Annibal Caro con l'aggionta delli argomenti, & le figure in rame

      Padua:: Pietro Paulo Tozzi,, 1608. 4to. 4to (220 x 161 mm). [8], 200 pp. Double column, italic types (the last page printed in a much smaller font). Engraved architectural border with Jesuit monogram and caryatids, 13 full-page engravings, comprising a portrait of Caro and an engraving at the head of each book, all within type-ornament borders; woodcut bandeau, initials & tailpieces. Quires Y and Z misbound in reverse order. Light staining in lower margin of title, occasional faint marginal foxing; else fine. Contemporary vellum, ms. title on spine (small repair to backstrip, later endleaves). Two small contemporary ms. correction slips bound in pointing out the binding error; small ms. "3" at foot of title. ***& & first edition thus illustrated of Caro's Italian adaptation of the Aeneid, first published at Venice in 1581. The twelve finely detailed engravings by an anonymous artist each depict, in a single scene, the principal episodes from the relevant book, in a form of illustration first used for editions of the Aeneid in the mid-16th century, and dubbed by Werner Suerbaum the “Argument Type”(Argumentum-Typus), in the Latin sense of argumentum, a concise statement of contents. Identified within the plates by captions in Italian, the characters reappear in different foreground or background positions to denote various points in time, beginning generally at the lower right and ending at the upper left. The foreground figures, denoting action from the beginning of the book, are generally larger than those in the background, regardless of the significance of the event. Thus, for example, Dido appears four times in the engraving to Book IV, with her suicide barely visible in a distant corner of the plate. Places are also identified in the plates. & & According to Suerbaum, this is the latest known example of a Vergil-illustration cycle of the “argument” type, and its iconography is unique. As in earlier examples of the type, each illustration is accompanied by a textual summary, in this case a five-line verse description setting forth the argomento printed below each engraving, a direct Italian translation of a series of Virgil argumenta of late Antiquity, each in 5 hexameters, contained in the Anthologia Latina (591-602). & & The superb full-page portrait of the translator shows a bearded Caro wearing toga and laurel wreath. There is no clue as to the identity of the artist/engraver. A. Bertozzi or S. Zanella, both of whom illustrated other books for Tozzi, are possible candidates, though some scholars have suggested that the engraver may have belonged to a German school (cf. Suerbaum, p. 314). Tozzi reused the engravings in an edition dated 1613 (a supposed 1612 edition appears to be a ghost); a series of new but far coarser plates loosely based on this series was produced for an edition printed by him ca. 1621.& & Mambelli 813 (giving 196 numbered pp.); Paitoni III, 170-171; Pasquier, Virgile illustré, 56; BMC 17th cent.

        The Bible: That is, the Holy Scriptures conteined in the Old and New Testament; translated According to the Ebrew and Greeke; and Conferred with the Best translations in Diuers Languages, with Most Profitable Annotations Vpon All Hard Places

      London: Robert Barker, 1608. [6], 190, 181, [11]. The true first edition of the "Judas Bible" named for the typographical error in John 6:67 where Judas is substituted for Jesus. As in the case of typical Geneva Bibles, Genesis 3:7 has the Lord making them :"breeches" instead of clothing. Ruth 3:15 here has "she" which is correct though later editions of the King James 1611 to 1614 inexplicably did not reset the type until late in 1614 when "she" became standard for the King James Bible. Expertly Quarto edition rebacked over 18th Century Calf with gilt lettering on red morocco label. Bible engraved title page is mounted, List of BIble Names is not complete. top edge trimmed, some browning and soiling, with some closed tears though the Bible text is readable throughout. Pages are often misnumbered but the passages are complete. The last section is the Apocrypha and there is a torn missing part of the page on the Historie of Susanna and Bel and the Dragon measuring about 6" x 5". Many in text illustrations (18 in Old Testament) from the Garden of Eden location, the ark, all the furniture of the Tabernacle; a sleightly larger than half page map of the Israelites and their enemies in the land of Canaan, and another map of the locations of the 12 tribes; Several of Solomon's Temple, and at the Book of Job there is a 17th Century insert of Job and his three friends. On the blank page preceding the list of proper names in the Bible there is an interesting account of previous ownership all from the 17th Century. There is ink text possibly in Welsh, then a note that the Bible was bound off Martha Wyneth 1672 off January (unclear meaning). Then written in 1674 Sarah Darling her book. A very nice copy mostly well-preserved and no further indications of later owners though it made its way at some point to the United States..

        Cometologia laconica contra portentosam cometarum apparitionem. Marci Grisaldi philosophi, et medici Perusini, [...].

      Perusiae, apud Augustos, 1608 in-12, leg. coeva in piena pergamena floscia, pp. 156. Stemma calcografico sul front. Altro emblema - in xilografia - a c. A12v. Leggermente rosicchiato il margine superiore della copertina posteriore, per il resto ottime condizioni. Prima edizione. Marco Antonio Grisaldi (1594 ? 1646) fu professore di medicina pratica presso l?Università di Perugia. Il suo nome, però, è legato all?astronomia, in quanto pubblicò alcuni scritti tesi a sfatare la superstizione secondo cui le comete erano portatrici di disgrazie. Il più interessante è questo ?Cometologia contra portentosam cometarum apparitionem? che è censito in soli 4 esemplari in ICCU. Riccardi I, c. 633. Cantamessa "Astrologia ins & outs", scheda n. 3409: "Importante opera del matematico Grisaldi diretta [...] a negare che il passaggio delle comete sia apportatore di disgrazie [...] La cometa oggetto dell'opera è quella di Halley in uno dei suoi passaggi".

        Regno di Sicilia

      Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. La carta della Sicilia di Magini è tra le più recenti dell'opera maginiana. Secondo alcuni scritti dell'archivio del Magini apprendiamo chje il 6 febbraio 1604 la carta era una dell 6 che mancavano. Il disegno gli arrivò forse proprio nel 1604; un grande disegno in 5 fogli inviatogli dai signori Giurati di Messina dalla quale l'incisore Benjamin Wright intaglio la carta dell'isola. Tuttavia tale carta era piuttosto povera di toponimi e scarsa di idrografia e orografia. Il magini si servì pertanto delle notizie trovate nell acrart di Mercatore e quella di Gastaldi per completare l'opera che fu inserita nell'atlante.

Dette atlas indeholder 4 kort over de danske kyster."Kortene (fra "Het Licht der Zeevaert") udmærker sig ved klarhed og overskuelighed, men den væsentligste del findes allerede hos Waghenaar" (Nørlund p. 47).Kortet er gengivet hos Bramsen p. 79 og hos Nørlund nr. 48

        De Distillatione Lib. IX. Quibus certa methodo, multiplicique artificio, penitioribus naturae arcanis detectis, cuiuslibet mixti in propria elementa resolutio, perfecte docetur

      Rome: Ex Typographia Reu, Camerae Apostolicae, 1608. First edition. A very fine copy of &#147;the most comprehensive view of the applications of distillation of the period&#148; (Norman). &#147;This book is as rare as beautiful. Ferguson, speaking of the reimpression (Strassburg, 1609), says that &#145;the Roman edition is a much finer book.&#146; (Duveen). <br/><br/> & &#147;Porta published in 1608 at Rome a work on distillation, its methods, apparatus and applications, which is of interest as giving a more comprehensive view of the application of distillation in the sixteenth century than is found in any other work of the period.&#148; (Stillman, The Story of Early Chemistry, pp. 350-51).<br/><br/>& &#147;The first and longest, and the most fully illustrated, of the nine books deals with different forms of stills. Porta describes various forms of distilling apparatus for various uses including the preparation of essential oils, on which Forbes says he is a very good authority having had occasion to observe the industry in Naples. Porta was the first to give yeilds from different materials. He also deals with various stills designed to produce different strengths of alcohol, all with air cooled condensers; one still is heated by the sun. In the same spirit as his <i>Physiognomonia</i> and <i>Phytognomonica</i>, in one section he compares the stills and their functions with animals. Hot things require a still with a short thick neck, just as nature has given &#145;angry and furious creatures&#146; like the bear and the lion short strong necks. After this preliminary treatise on stills, the other 8 books give more specific details of the preparation of perfumes and the distillation of essential oils; resins; and woods; and the extraction of virtues of substances, such as <i>aqua vita essential</i>, that is alcohol. <br/><br/> & &#147;The fine author portrait by Giacomo Lauro or Iacobus Laurus (active c. 1583-c.1645) shows Porta aged 64 surrounded by motifs referring to his various studies: physiognomy, astrology, geometry, optics, fortification, cryptography and distilling.&#148; (Roger Gaskell). <br/><br/> & &#147;There were four printings in Rome in 1608, all from different settings of type (see Wellcome), but no priority has been established.&#148; (Neville).<br/><br/>& Norman 1725; Honeyman 2521; Neville 323; Duveen 481; Ferguson II:216; Partington II:24; Stillman 360; Wellcome I:5211. 4to: 215 x 155 mm, pp. [20] 154 [6], contemporary limp vellum with manuscript title to spine, old inscription and stamp to title, some very light spotting and staining to some leaves, but a very fine unretsored copy. Rare in such good condition.
