        Nova Francia: or the description of that part of New France, which is one continent with Virginia. Described in the three late voyages and plantation made by Monsieur de Monts, Monsieur du Pont-Grané, and Monsieur de Poutrincourt, into the countries called by the French men La Cadie, lying to the Southwest of Cape Breton. Together with an excellent severall treatie of all the commodities of the said countries, and manners of the natural inhabitants of the same. Translated out of French into English by P[ierre] E[rondelle]

      London: [Eliot's Court Press for] George Bishop, 1609. Small quarto. (7 x 5 1/8 inches). 1 folding engraved map. (First leaf [blank save for a single fleuron] in fascimile, a few small expert repairs to the title and first two preliminary leaves, affecting a few letters, repaired small tear across lower blank border of map). Modern dark green morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, covers and spine gilt, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges (upper outer joint slightly tender) Provenance: Boise Penrose (two bookplates) The Boise Penrose copy of the rare first English edition of this highly important source for the history of Canada, published the same year as the French first edition, complete with the first and most accurate contemporary map of Canada. The rare first English edition of this premier source for the history of Canada, published the same year as the French first edition, complete with the first contemporary and detailed map of Canada. Lescarbot was a French writer and lawyer who spent the winter of 1606-7 at Port Royal, Acadia. He gives accounts of early French voyages and discoveries in America such as those of Villegagnon to Brazil, Verrazzano, Ribaut and Laudonnière to Florida, Champlain, sieurs de Poutrincourt and de Monts, Cartier, and Roberval. Also included is much information concerning the Indian tribes, especially those of northeastern Canada, to whom the second book in this English edition is devoted. Much of the material Lescarbot collected himself, interviewing members of the early expeditions and recording his own observations and experiences. Field, in describing the first French edition, states: "His descriptions of Indian Life and peculiarities are very interesting, an account both of their fidelity, and from being among the first authentic relations, we have of them after Cartier." As with so many important works on American published in English in this era, the author, translator, and scholar Richard Hakluyt played a role in the publication of the English edition of Lescarbot. The translator Pierre Erondelle states in the introduction that Hakluyt had asked him to translate the work both to describe Canada and also "for the particular use of this nation, to the end that comparing the goodness of lands of the northern parts herein mentioned with that of Virginia, which...must be far better by reason it stands more southerly nearer to the sun; greater encouragement may be given to prosecute that generous and goodly action." Thus accounts of Canada, in Hakluyt's reckoning, would enhance the promotional materials of the Virginia Company, then being published in London. The large map, "Figure de la Terre Neuue, Grand Riviere de Canada, et Côtes de l'Ocean en la Novvelle France," was also issued with the first French edition, and is considered the most accurate cartographic representation of the area at the time. "The map extends up the St. Lawrence River as far as the Indian village Hochelaga, or Montreal as we know it. The first trading post in Canada, founded in 1600 at Tadousac, is shown at the mouth of the R. de Saguenay and just next to that is the River Lesquemin mistakenly named in reverse. Kebec is shown here for the first time on a printed map in its Micmac form, meaning the narrows of the river" (Burden) European Americana 609/68; Sabin 40175; Church 341; Vail 16; Harrisse Nouvelle France 19; Borba de Moraes 406-7; Field 916; STC 15491; Schwartz & Ehrenberg, pp.88-90; cf.

        Soledades de la vida y desengaños del mundo, novelas exemplares.

      Golden Age writer Cristobal Lozano (1609-67) was a priest, doctor in theology, commisar of the Holy Crusade and of the Holy Office, and a friend of Calderon de la Barca and of Juan Pérez de Montalbán. He left a goodly corpus that includes novels, poetry, and plays, all reflecting or studying in one degree or another the concerns of Counter-Reformation Spain. Themes include purity of blood, student life, and the status and roles of women in society. Soledades de la vida y desengaños del mundo was first published in Madrid in 1658 and was reprinted many times in the subsequent decades, attesting to its continued popularity during the "Edad de Oro."Essentially a miscellany, it is composed of two distinct parts, the Soledades and the Persecuciones de Lucina, dama valenciana, y tragicos sucessos de Don Carlos. The first is essentially a four-part pastoral novel about love and life while the second is an eight-part novel concerning a pair of young lovers whose parents oppose their friendship with the expected result of the youngsters running away together and having adventures and misadventures. Provenance: No individual's name appears, but the title-page is inscribed in an 18th-century hand with the name of a little town in southeast Puebla, Sto. Tomas Hueyotlipan.

        LE SECOND LIVRE, IOURNAL OU COMPTOIR, CONTENANT LE VRAY DISCOURS ET NARRATION HISTORIQUE

      Amsterdam, 1609. Folio. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. A few leaves with worm tracks expertly repaired. Very good. Second French edition, following the first French edition of 1601, of this important voyages narrative, describing the initial Dutch exploration and expansion to the East Indies, a significant element in a global commercial enterprise which was to develop throughout the 17th century. Van Neck, who represented the Verre Company, commanded three ships which were part of the first successful Dutch trading voyage to the region. The other two ships were commanded by Wybrand Van Warwijck and Jacob Van Heemskerk. Van Neck's vessel became separated from the other two after rounding the Cape of Good Hope, and the three did not reunite again until his arrival in Java in late December 1598. Unlike his Dutch predecessor, Cornelis Houtman, who three years earlier had seized the port of Bantam, Van Neck dealt diplomatically with the natives. "Rather than rejecting the inflated prices asked by the local ruler, he offered to pay over the odds in order to cement a lasting relationship...Van Neck's was the most profitable of the pre-VOC [Dutch East India Company] voyages. Despite the apparently high price paid for spices, he netted a profit of 300 per cent on his overall costs. In 1601, fourteen fleets comprising sixty-five ships sailed for the East Indies, but by that time competition between rival Dutch operators, as well as with the Portuguese, had inflated prices and none were as successful as Van Neck's first enterprise" - Howgego. While focused on activity in the East Indies, EUROPEAN AMERICANA notes that the text includes references to Brazil and tobacco from the West Indies. The second part of this 1609 French edition (which has its own titlepage) is an eight-page appendix of words spoken in Java and Malay, including word lists in French (printed in roman type), Malay (in italic type), and Javanese (in civilité).

        PRIMERA PARTE DE LOS COMMENTARIOS REALES, QUE TRATAN DEL ORIGEN DE LOS YNCAS, REYES QUE FUERON DEL PERU, DE SU IDOLATRIA, LEYES, Y GOVIERNO EN PAZ Y EN GUERRA

      Lisbon, 1609. Small folio. Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine title, remnants of pigskin ties. Minor foxing and soiling, some light dampstaining to top edge. Very good. First edition of the "Royal Commentaries" of the great half Spanish, half Inca historian, Garcilaso de la Vega. The Inca was the foremost historian of early Peru, and his works are the basis of our knowledge of Incan history. Born in Cuzco, the son of a Spanish nobleman and an Indian princess, he was a second cousin to the last Incan rulers of Peru. He left Peru as a youth and lived in Spain the rest of his life. The PRIMERA PARTE... deals entirely with the Incan empire and the conquest of Peru. The Spanish critic, Menendez y Pelayo, called it "the most genuinely American book that has ever been written, perhaps the only one in which a reflection of the soul of the conquered raced has survived.

"During the Middle Ages, tuberculosis of the lymph glands of the neck was very common and was known variously as scrofula, struma, and the 'Kings Evil'. For centuries it was believed that the 'royal touch' could cure this disease and many English and French monarchs were in the habit of touching their afflicted subjects during major religious holidays. Du Laurens was a firm believer in the effectiveness of the 'royal touch' and, in this work, reports that King Henry IV., often touched and healed as many as 1500 indiviudals at a time" (HOH). Du Laurens (1558-1609) wurde durch Protektion Leibarzt von Henri IV. "Si l'on juge ce médecin d'après ses oeuvres, on peut croire avec raison qu'il dut les honneurs dont il était investi, et le crédit dont il jouissait, bien moins à son mérite qu'à la faveur et à l'intrigue" (Dict. hist. méd.

        Illustrium Scriptorum Religionis Societatis Iesu Catalogus

      Jo. Pillehotte, Lyon 1609 - 8vo, pp (ii) 3-303 (viii). Roman and Italic letter, woodcut headpieces and initials, beautiful woodcut title page with architectural frame device, scattered marginal ms annotations in two near contemp. hands, autograph at foot of t-p (inked over), early C19th bookplate of Colonel S Lyn of Berkeley Square to front pastedown, some light water staining to outer margins of first three gatherings, scorch mark (affecting 3 or 4 letters) to I5, very occasional wormholes, general age yellowing. A good copy in contemp. limp vellum, slight wear on spine, title inked on spine and lower edge. Second, enlarged edition of the first bibliography of members of the Society of Jesus, first published at Antwerp in 1608. The work is split into several parts: the first and by far the most substantial lists alphabetically all known Jesuit authors, giving a short biography and then a list of their works, both printed and manuscript. Among them is Robert Sotwell, of Suffolk, martyred 1595. The small second part, ordered chronologically, provides biographical details of members of the Society who were martyred ‘ab Ethnicis, Mahumetanis, Haereticis, aliisque impiis’ on missions as far afield as Japan, Mexico, Florida and the Indies. Next comes an index of the writers contained in the catalogue arranged by nationality (eleven are listed under ‘Angli, Scoti, Hiberni’, including Robert Persons and Joseph Creswell), and then a long and detailed list of works by Jesuits ordered by subject matter. Those printed at Lyon also include the printer’s name and date.?The final part of the work is a list of the provinces, colleges, houses and societies set up by the Society of Jesus, which provides valuable evidence of how they opened up the rest of the world to European influence: by the time this was published, permanent Jesuit establishments had been founded at Panama, Manila, Lima, Nagasaki, Goa, Santa Fe, Peking and Ethiopia. Japan had 13 alone and 154 priests, China and Africa 5 and 60 respectively, and the Americas played host to many hundreds. Pedro Ribaneira (1526-1611), born in Toledo, entered the Society of Jesus aged fourteen. A Professor of Rhetoric at Palermo, he was ordained in 1553 and dedicated his time to preaching and promulgating the the cause of the Society, especially in the Low Countries. He is perhaps best known for his Life of Loyola, published in 1572. Graesse VI 106. Sabin 70778a ("ouvrage infinement precieux" Leclerc). De Backer VI 1754. JCB 609/105. Besterman 1592. Alden 83.

        NOVA FRANCIA: OR THE DESCRIPTION OF THAT PART OF NEW FRANCE, WHICH IS ONE CONTINENT WITH VIRGINIA. DESCRIBED IN THE THREE LATE VOYAGES AND PLANTATION MADE BY MONSIEUR DE MONTS, MONSIEUR DU PONT-GRAUÉ, AND MONSIEUR DE POUTRINCOURT, INTO THE COUNTRIES CALLED BY THE FRENCH MEN LA CADIE, LYING TO THE SOUTHWEST OF CAPE BRETON. TOGETHER WITH AN EXCELLENT SEVERALL TREATIE OF ALL THE COMMODITIES OF THE SAID COUNTRIES, AND MANNERS OF THE NATURAL INHABITANTS OF THE SAME. TRANSLATED OUT OF FRENCH INTO ENGLISH BY P[IERRE] E[RONDELLE]

      London, 1609. Small quarto. Modern dark green morocco, gilt boards and spine, a.e.g., gilt dentelles. Bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Upper outer joint slightly tender. Bookplates of Boies Penrose on front pastedown ("Ex Libris Boies Penrose II") and front free endpaper ("Old East India House Ex Libris Boies Penrose"). Slight age-toning throughout. First leaf (blank save for a single fleuron) in facsimile, a few small repairs to titlepage and first two preliminary leaves (affecting a few letters). Repaired minor tear across lower border of map. A very good copy. The rare first English edition of this premier source for the history of Canada, published the same year as the French first edition, complete with the first contemporary and detailed map of Canada. Lescarbot was a French writer and lawyer who spent the winter of 1606-7 at Port Royal, Acadia. He gives accounts of early French voyages and discoveries in America such as those of Villegagnon to Brazil; Verrazzano, Ribaut and Laudonnière to Florida, Champlain, sieurs de Poutrincourt and de Monts, Cartier, and Roberval. Also included is much information concerning the Indian tribes, especially those of northeastern Canada, to whom the second book in this English edition is devoted. Much of the material Lescarbot collected himself, interviewing members of the early expeditions and recording his own observations and experiences. Field, in describing the first French edition, states: "His descriptions of Indian Life and peculiarities are very interesting, an account both of their fidelity, and from being among the first authentic relations, we have of them after Cartier." As with so many important works on American published in English in this era, the author, translator, and scholar Richard Hakluyt played a role in the publication of the English edition of Lescarbot. The translator Pierre Erondelle states in the introduction that Hakluyt had asked him to translate the work both to describe Canada and also "for the particular use of this nation, to the end that comparing the goodness of lands of the northern parts herein mentioned with that of Virginia, which...must be far better by reason it stands more southerly nearer to the sun; greater encouragement may be given to prosecute that generous and goodly action." Thus accounts of Canada, in Hakluyt's reckoning, would enhance the promotional materials of the Virginia Company, then being published in London. The large map, "Figure de la Terre Neuue, Grand Riviere de Canada, et Côtes de l'Ocean en la Novvelle France," was also issued with the first French edition, and is considered the most accurate cartographic representation of the area at the time. "The map extends up the St. Lawrence River as far as the Indian village Hochelaga, or Montreal as we know it. The first trading post in Canada, founded in 1600 at Tadousac, is shown at the mouth of the R. de Saguenay and just next to that is the River Lesquemin mistakenly named in reverse. Kebec is shown here for the first time on a printed map in its Micmac form, meaning the narrows of the river" - Burden. The rare English translation of an early significant history of Canada, with the most accurate contemporary map of the region.

        BREVIS NARRATIO EORUM QUAE IN FLORIDA AMERICAE PROVI[N]CIA GALLIS ACCIDERUNT...QUAE EST SECUNDA PARS AMERICAE

      Frankfurt, 1609. Folio. Bound in 18th-century German mottled calf, gilt, a large centrally-placed gilt coroneted monogram "JGC" on upper cover, the lower cover with a gilt coat of arms surmounted by a coronet, spines gilt with raised bands, dark green morocco labels stamped in gilt. Very good. The second Latin edition of a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's Native Americans and a very important map of Florida. With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's VIRGINIA, De Bry launched what would later become known as his GRAND VOYAGES. These first two works are without question the most important of the series in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors. The text of the BREVIS NARRATIO... describes the earliest French settlements of what are now portions of the United States and are here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolors by a member of the expedition to the New World. To most of the Old World this work presented the first accurate eyewitness depiction and account of Native Americans. In the mid-1560s two French expeditions led by Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière sought to establish a Huguenot settlement in Florida. Among those accompanying Laudonnière was Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues: born in Dieppe, France in about 1533, he was appointed artist to the expedition which sailed in April 1564. Arguably the first western artist to visit the New World, Le Moyne recorded the scenery of Florida and the lives of the Timucua Indians in great detail, as well as charting the coastline of Florida and much of present-day South Carolina. Unfortunately, the nascent French colony was seen as a threat by the Spanish, the dominant European power in the region, and in September 1565 a force led by Pedro Menendez massacred the French colonists at Fort Caroline. Le Moyne and several others, however, made a miraculous escape. The story of their struggles was not published until 1588, when, at the instigation of Richard Hakluyt, Laudonnière's journal was published in Paris. Later that year master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London and met with Le Moyne in an unsuccessful attempt to obtain illustrations of the region to accompany a new edition of Laudonnière's journal. Following Le Moyne's death the following year, De Bry returned to London and purchased the watercolors from his widow. It was on this trip to London that De Bry met Hakluyt, who informed him of the British expeditions to Virginia, shared with him Hariot's journal and White's watercolors from the expedition, and suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White and Laudonnière/Le Moyne. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the former in Latin, German, French and English. The following year he published the latter in Latin and German, presumably having found that there was only a small market for the other languages. Le Moyne's extraordinary illustrations of the Florida Indians, which appear on forty-two leaves of this work in their first published form, rank with those of John White as the best visual record of American Indians before the 19th century. They show all aspects of Indian life, including settlements, ceremonies, wars, agriculture, hunting, and preparation of food. They also show scenes of the French settlement and their involvement with the Indians. These images were widely copied for centuries, and many later supposedly original illustrations of American Indians are actually copies of Le Moyne's illustrations. A full list of the plates appears in Church. The map, which appeared for the first time with this text, is one of the most elaborate Florida maps of the peninsula to appear in the 16th century, giving the names assigned by the French and Spanish. Cumming provides an elaborate description, and John Matthew Baxter describes it as "the most remarkable and important map, which has been preserved from the sixteenth century maps, of that part of the East Coast which lies between Cape Hatteras and Cape Florida. [It is] the first French map to show Florida [and is] considered the most important map of Florida.

        Opus de virtute et statu religionis

      Bernardo Giunta and Giovan Battista Ciotti, Venice 1609 - Folio, pp. (88), 776. Predominantly Roman letter, little Italic. Decorated initials, title in red and black with large printer’s device showing personifications of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany surrounded by the cities of Siena, Lucca, Pisa and curiously Perugia; title slightly stained, tiny marginal wormholes in places, a few pages lightly browned or foxed, light dampstains to final gatherings. A good copy in contemporary plain vellum; skilfully repaired and rebacked, later endpapers. Rare second edition, accurately revised and expanded after the editio princeps just published in Coimbra. Francisco Suárez (1548-1617), named by contemporaries ‘Doctor Eximius’, was a pious and highly respected theologian. He entered the Society of Jesus at Salamanca, where he read philosophy and theology and was ordained priest in 1572. He taught these two subjects all over the Iberian peninsula, including the leading universities of Alcalá de Henares, Salamanca and Coimbra, as well as, for a short period, in Rome. His fame was so great that Gregory XIII attended his first lecture in Rome, while Paul V invited him to refute the errors of King James I and stay at his side in the papal court. However, Philip II, then king of Spain and Portugal, sent him to the University of Coimbra to give further prestige to that ancient and glorious institution. It is also said that, when Suárez visited the University of Barcelona, the professors went out to greet him holding the insignia of their faculties. He was among the most eminent thinkers of the Second Scholasticism, alongside Domingo de Soto and Roberto Bellarmino. De virtute et statu religionis, written under the auspices of Paul V, tackles the notion of true religion and deviations from it, including magic, simony and pagan cults. The second book is devoted to superstition, focusing on occult beliefs, witchcraft, demonology and the punishments for such practices. As usual, his argument is very clear and in-depth, bearing witness to his exceptional knowledge of the Classics, the Church’s Fathers and the heretical as well as ecclesiastical writers. This is an invaluable source for the students of the Catholic Church’s policy towards magical thought. ‘[Suárez] worked in a great variety of fields, including metaphysics, natural theology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of action, ethics, political philosophy, and law. In all these areas he made contributions the influences of which are so widespread and commonplace that they sometimes escape notice. Still, it is noteworthy that figures as distinct from one another in place, time, and philosophical orientation as Leibniz, Grotius, Pufendorf, Schopenhauer, and Heidegger, all found reason to cite him as a source of inspiration and influence.’ Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy.

        Problematum Astronomicorum

      1609. MONTE, Guido Ubaldo.Problematum Astronomicorum, Libri Septem.Venetiis: Bernarum Juntam, Jo. Baptistam Ciottum, 1609.Scarce first edition of this Renaissance collection of problems in astronomy, including a brief chapter on comets, with engraved title vignette of a celestial map and astronomical woodcut diagrams on nearly every page. In contemporary vellum.Known also as Guidobaldo, Renaissance mathematician Guido Monte was a prominent figure in the advance of the mechanical sciences. His first book, Liber mechanicorum (1577) ?"was regarded by contemporaries as the greatest work on statics since the Greeks?" (DSB) and is now considered ?"a milestone in the history of mechanics?" (René Dugas). He was among the few to ?"pursue the project of reconciling mathematical and physical reality through the recovery and study of the works of Archimedes, Hero, and Pappus?" (Jessica Wolfe). Monte was also influential in securing appointments for Galileo, first at Pisa and then Padua, and became his friend and patron for 20 years-possibly exerting the greatest single influence on Galileo?'s mechanics. Together they conducted a series of experiments on the trajectories of cannonballs, asserting that projectiles follow parabolic paths. Building on Monte, ?"Galileo was able to apply the principle of virtual displacements to both static and dynamic cases [of motion] and was able to frame useful principles of virtual work and inertia?" (DSB). Monte?'s Problematum Astronomicorum, published posthumously, treats various aspects of observational astronomy and the determination of the positions of constellations. In the first chapter, he provides descriptions and diagrams of a number of his own astronomical instruments, including a device for dividing the circle into degrees, minutes, and seconds. Through such mechanical devices, Monte maintained that abstract mathematical principles could be reconciled with physical reality.See Drake, Galileo at Work, 459.Faint waterstain to top two-thirds of text block, chipping to top corner of last leaf (Index) with minor loss of text, moderate soiling to contemporary vellum. A very good copy with fine provenance of a very scarce and important astronomical work.

Recent period-style calf, blind panels with corner fleurons to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, speckled edges. Woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Some toning to text, internally clean. A notably handsome copy. * First edition. With comprehensive index, glosses and side-note references to the works of Fitzherbert, Brooke and others. Pulton is best known for his respected abridgements An Abstract of all the Penal Statutes Which are General (1560) and A Kalendar or Table of All the Statutes (1606). De Pace Regis et Regni took his earlier works as the starting point for a comprehensive overview of criminal law. Holdsworth, who holds this work in high regard, observes that it was only the second title devoted to the subject. The first, Staunford's Les Plees del Coron, was published posthumously in 1560. Holdsworth adds that a comparison between Pulton and (the less comprehensive) Staunford "enables us to appreciate the effect of the additions to and alterations of the criminal law made during this period, both by the legislature, and by the judges of the common law courts and of the court of Star Chamber" (392-393).

The story of their struggles was not published until 1588, when, at the instigation of Richard Hakluyt, Laudonnière's journal was published in Paris. Later that year, master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London, and met with Le Moyne in an unsuccessful attempt to obtain illustrations of the region to accompany a new edition of Laudonnière's journal. Following Le Moyne's death the following year, De Bry returned to London and purchased the watercolours from his widow. It was on this trip to London that De Bry met Hakluyt, who informed him of the British expeditions to Virginia, shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolours from the expedition and suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White and Laudonnière/Le Moyne. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the former in Latin, German, French and English; the following year he published the latter in Latin and German, presumably having found that there was only a small market for the other languages. Le Moyne's extraordinary illustrations of the Florida Indians, which appear on forty-two leaves of this work in their first published form, rank with those of John White as the best visual record of American Indians before the 19th century. They show all aspects of Indian life, including settlements, ceremonies, wars, agriculture, hunting, and preparation of food. They als [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Amphitheatrum sapientiae aeternae solius verae, christiano-kabalisticum, divino-magicum, nec non physico-chymicum, tertriunum, catholicon.

      [Colophon:] Hanau, Wilhelm Antonius, 1609 - Folio (300 x 190 mm), pp 60; 222, [2, colophon and blank], with engraved title, engraved portrait of the author, 10 engraved plates, 9 double-page, and two double-page tables; a fine copy, without the usual browning, title just slightly toned, unpressed in contemporary German yapped vellum with ties, titled in ink on spine, blue edges. £25,000A fine copy of the first complete edition (the work first appeared in Hamburg in 1595, with only four plates; only three copies, Darmstadt, Basle, and Wisconsin, are known). The Amphitheathrum is 'one of the most important books in the whole literature of theosophical alchemy and the occult sciences'. 'It may justly be referred to as one of the best-known alchemical works: the plates with which it is illustrated are remarkable both for their subject-matter and their execution. The particular plate showing the adept (probably the author himself) praying in his laboratory has been reproduced in all recent books dealing with alchemy as well as dealing with the history of chemistry' (Duveen, 'Notes on some alchemical books', The Library, 5th series, 1 p 56).Khunrath 'believed himself to be an adept of various spiritual traditions of alchemy dominated by the Paracelsian belief in the divine science of medicine as a privilege of the initiated (scientia arcanorum). Beginning with his twenty-eight doctoral theses (defended at Basel on 24 August 1588) he used the then modern Neoplatonic combination of heavenly and earthly processes to develop his ideas of Christianized natural magic (Divino-Magicum). On the other hand, he held experience alone to be decisive against the opinions of the great philosophers. With this union of theosophical experience and experience from natural observations he tried to shape what was then called physicochemica, that is, a chemical art grounded on general principles and practised by the physicochemici. They used the artificial method, that is, the application of chemical means to obtain reactions from natural substances, and took as a basis the three principles sulfur, salt, and mercury, together with essentia. The last he made equivalent to the Mosaic "Ruach Elohim," to the Hermetic anima mundi, to the philosophers' forma, and to the essentia quinta of the doctrine of elements.'Khunrath ardently sought to find and demonstrate the secret, divine primary matter endowed with the universal virtue of ruling all natural processes . These efforts would, he claimed, afford eternal wisdom. Medical and chemical operations have to be undertaken, he stated, first under the guidance of God, then of Jesus Christ, and finally through the three methods called Christiano-Kabalice, Divino-Magice, and Physico-Chymice. Through prayer and work the theosopher has to implement them. The relation to God was an essential feature of the chemistry of Khunrath's time. On 1 February 1625 Khunrath's Amphitheatrum was condemned by the Sorbonne for its mixture of Christianity and magic' (DSB).Jan Diricks van Campen signed Khunrath's portrait included in the volume, and probably also engraved the title page and the rectangular double-page plates. The four circular plates, which first appeared in the 1595 edition, were engraved by Paullus vander Doort of Antwerp. That of the alchemist praying in his laboratory was drawn by Hans Vredeman de Vries (1527-1604).The striking plates, for which this work is most noted, are as follows:1. Emblematic title, featuring twin obelisks and various alchemical and kabbalistic symbols, with title within a wreath surmounted by a small portrait of the author, dated 16022. Portrait of the author aged 42 holding a compass with the Bible open at the Psalms before him (Psalm 71.17), with dog, and with depictions of books and alchemical apparatus, acrostic verses below; engraved by Jan Diricks van Campen3. The Way of the Wise, leading to the 'Porta Ampitheatri Sapientiae Aeternae'. Double-page plate, with engraved text in Latin, dated 1602. The caption states that Khunrath d

Absent the French catalogs and the British Library.

Upper jaw split tail and head 6cm 2cm. Caps threadbare. The two novels are romantic tragedies, both preceded by a gallant and relatively ardent epistle to Madame de Lerm, Anne Calonges. Following the first novel, there is a series of poems which the last is a fundamentally erotic poem entitled enigma. ITE was a novelist Languedoc whose ornate and lyrical style is relatively complex. His way is relatively modern and original in the early seventeenth. Its literature seems nourished by Greek-Latin and Italian novelists of the sixteenth, but with a much more tragic and dramatic accent. His works we hastily classified as minor an important turning point for the history of baroque novel in France. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Les romans sont deux tragédies amoureuses, tous deux précédés d'une épître galante et relativement ardente à madame de Lerm, Anne de Calonges. A la suite du premier roman, on trouve une série de poésies dont le dernier est un poème foncièrement érotique intitulé énigme. Intras fut un romancier du Languedoc dont le style fleuri et lyrique est relativement complexe. Sa voie est relativement originale et moderne en ce début du XVIIe. Sa littérature semble nourrie des romanciers gréco-latins et italiens du XVIe, mais avec un accent nettement plus tragique et dramaturgique. Ses oeuvres qu'on a trop hâtivement qualifiées de légères constituent un tournant important pour l'histoire du roman baroque en France.

It is illustrated with a magisterial title allegorical frontispiece engraved by Leonard Gaultier, here in the first draw, the bust of Ronsard crowned by Homer and Virgil, as well as Mars and Venus whose sex will be for other prints, veiled by a lock of hair. A portrait of Muret the back sheet of the sixth and two other portraits (the author and one woman) inset on the back of eighth sheet. This edition was also separated into ten volumes in 12 by Nicolas Buon. Binding in full brown calf of the time. Back to six nerves decorated with blind fillets and golden jewels. Double net gilded framing dishes. Mors rubbed, corners lightly used and some rubbing. A small working worm affecting the lower margin slice a few layers, some foxing and discreet restoration of paper (mainly on the frontispiece of the page). The original edition of the Collection of Sonnets, odes, hymns, elegies contains 132 pp in fine works.; we note with great interest the comments distributed to each constituent poems sonnets and odes by Belleau, or Richelet Muret, eloquent testimonies of contemporary poets including the Pleiades, and testimony of a medieval practice which was already in a writer of prose paraphrase a comment by his verse poem (Dante's Vita Nova of the fourteenth is a good example). Ronsard published his first "works" in 1560; From then until his death, he will work diligently to editing all of his works, but his body was so huge (besides correcting and rewriting) that many editions will come after his death in 1585, including pieces he chose himself subtract according to his ecclesiastical status and contemporary events. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale du Recueil des Sonnets, Odes, Hymnes, Elégies et onzième édition collective originale. Elle est illustrée d'un magistral titre-frontispice allégorique gravé par Léonard Gaultier, ici en premier tirage, représentant le buste de Ronsard couronné par Homère et Virgile, ainsi que Mars et Vénus dont le sexe sera, pour les autres tirages, voilé d'une mèche de cheveux. Un portait de Muret au verso du sixième feuillet et deux autres portraits (l'auteur et une femme) en médaillon au verso du huitième feuillet. Cette édition a été également séparée en dix volumes in-12 par Nicolas Buon.   Reliure en plein veau brun de l'époque. Dos à six nerfs orné de filets à froid et de fleurons dorés. Double filet doré en encadrement des plats. Mors frottés, coins légèrement émoussés et quelques frottements. Un petit travail de ver en marge inférieure affectant la tranche de quelques de feuillets, quelques mouillures et discrètes restaurations de papier (principalement sur la page du frontispice).   L'édition originale du Recueil des Sonnets, Odes, Hymnes, Elégies contient 132 pp. in fine des œuvres ; on remarquera avec le plus grand intérêt les commentaires distribués à chacun des poèmes constituant les sonnets et les odes, par Belleau, Muret ou Richelet, témoignages éloquent de poètes contemporains et notamment de La Pléiade, et témoignage d'une pratique déjà médiévale qui consistait pour un écrivain à paraphraser en prose par son commentaire un poème en vers (la Vita Nova de Dante au XIVème en est un bon exemple). Ronsard publia ses premières « œuvres » en 1560 ; à partir de cette date et jusqu'à sa mort, il travaillera assidûment à l'édition de l'ensemble de ses œuvres, mais son corpus était si immense (sans compter la correction et la réécriture) que nombre d'éditions originales viendront après son décès en 1585, notamment les pièces qu'il préféra lui-même retrancher en fonction de son statut ecclésiastique et des événements contemporains.

        Il Fiore della Granadiglia, overo della Passione di nostro Signore Giesù Christo; spiegato, e lodato con discorsi, e varie Rime. All¿Illustrissimo, e Reverendissimo Signore, il Signor Cardinale Giustiniano, Legato di Bologna.

      Bartolomeo Cocchi, Bologna 1609 - (viii), 22, (2); (1), 42, (1) pp., with a woodcut title-vignette, one full-page woodcut, a woodcut tail-piece showing Mercury on verso of errata, and a full-page engraved plate; the first few leaves with small, old restoration to lower gutter; a very good copy in lacquered dark-green hard-grained cloth; upper cover gilt-lettered ¿Il Fiore della Granatiglia¿. Excellent. First edition of the Italian Dominican Simone Parlasca¿s rare treatise on this New World flower ¿ and the first work to contain an illustration of the plant. The passion flower was adopted as a Christian symbol because of its unique physical resemblance to the Arma Christi, the instruments of torture associated with the last days of Christ. The Spanish physician and botanist Nicolás Monardes was perhaps the first to call attention, in 1574, to the Christian symbols in the flower. Then between 1607 and 1610, several pamphlets on the plant¿s meaning suddenly appeared in Italy, including the present work. The work is organized into 3 discourses followed by a series of laudatory poems on the passion flower by various authors: Parlasca¿s first discorso describes the plant¿s origin and virtues; the second his interpretation of the plant¿s appearance, with references to Della Porta¿s Phytognomonica, José de Acosta, Alfonso d¿Armeria, and others; the third discorso is on the flower¿s Christian attributes. Some three-dozen poets contribute rhymes to the volume¿s second half, with the most notable being Claudio Achillini (d. 1640) and Ridolfo Campeggi (d. 1624). Of special interest is the inclusion of several verses penned by members of the Accademia dei Selvaggi (Academy of Wildmen), a poetry society founded in Bologna in 1606 by Giovanni Capponi that adopted its motto, ¿Un Suono Esprime,¿ from Tasso¿s Gerusalemme Liberata. Some of the Academici Selvaggi conceal their identities behind clubby nicknames such as the Strepitoso (the Boisterous One). An unsigned woodcut of the passion flower prefaces Parlasca¿s opening discourse and represents the first printed image of the plant. The surprising accuracy of this representation suggests that the depiction was made after dried samples of the flower as opposed to written descriptions (Kluger and King). A refined engraved copy of this image showing the flower in reverse prefaces the poetry section and cannot have been made much later than the woodcut. The print comes from the Venetian shop of Valegius (likely Francesco Valesio, active in Venice around 1610) and includes engraved text outlining the flower¿s significance.
