        Conquista de las Islas Malucas al Rey Felipe III, N. S.

      s/e, Madrid 1609 - "Few narratives are written with so much judgment and elegance. one of the most important works for the history of the Philippine Islands". (Cox I, 284).Includes references to Japan, China & South America. Folio; XVIII century calf. FIRST EDITION OF THIS HISTORY OF SPAIN'S FIGHT FOR CONTROL OF THE MOLUCCAS. Regarded by Hill as an "essential work for the history of Spanish and Portuguese exploration in the East Indies," Argensolas's narrative is noted for its breadth of knowledge and over- all grasp of world politics. "In his digressions on people and places, (writes Lach in Asia in the making of Europe, III, pp. 311-12), Argensola adds significantly to the stockpile of information on Asia, especially on the Moluccas, Java, Sumatra, and Ceylon. His book also ties together neatly the affairs of Europe with struggles in the overseas areas, for he sees the spice trade in its world wide ramifications and makes his reader acutely aware of its immediate and potential interest for Japan and China." There are also in this work numerous American references including the voyage of Sir Francis Drake (pp.105 - 108), Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa's voyage of exploration to the Straits of Magellan (pp.119 - 131), special mention of Peru, the Patagonian giants, and Columbus. Argensola (1562 - 1631), royal chaplain and rector of Villahermosa, was commissioned to write this highly praised work by the Council of the Indies on the occasion of the Spanish recapture of the Moluccan islands of Ternate and Tidore in 1606. It is based on primary sources consulted in the archives of the Indies and thus comprises significant historical documentation. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Es de destacar el modo en que representaba los árboles y los juegos de luz en los bosques. Algunos de sus aguafuertes se cuentan entre los más tempranos ejemplos de paisajes "puros", sin presencia humana, y cuando incluye figuras, éstas se insertan en el paisaje para crear una escena natural y verosímil. En el siglo XVIII William Gilpin dijo de Waterloo que nadie representaba los árboles mejor que él. La estampa presente es de gran modernidad.

      Rheims [NT] & Douai [OT]: John Fogny [NT]; printed by Laurence Kellam [OT], 1582 & 1609–10 - Together 2 works in 3 quarto volumes. NT: quarto (214 x 155 mm). Late 17th-century calf, covers with a gilt rule border and gilt panel with a small fleuron at the corners, spine with 6 panels, the 2nd and 3rd with early 19th-century contrasting morocco labels; early 19th-century wove paper endleaves; sprinkled edges. Woodcut initials and ornaments; woodcut title from an early 17th-century Geneva Bible bound-in as frontispiece. Title and following leaf somewhat soiled and browned and repaired on the verso along the inner margin, text lightly browned throughout with some minor dampstaining, minor grubby marks and soiling in places, inner margin of the final leaf repaired, a very good copy. Old ink initials "AK" at the foot of the title; Rev. Joseph Abbot, perhaps the Catholic priest of St Chad's, Birmingham, circa 1838–40, with his early 19th-century signature on the front pastedown; pencil purchase note on the front flyleaf "Hodgson 423 10/10/69 AMX". OT: 2 volumes, quarto (225 x 168 mm). Contemporary gilt-tooled calf, central gilt-stamped oval "IHS" with crucifix surrounded by flames, frames with elaborate scrollwork, spines gilt-stamped with repeated floral stamp; rebacked with original spines laid down, corners mended. Titles within typographic ornament borders, woodcut headpieces and decorative initials. Bookplates of Robert S. Pirie. An occasional minor marginal spot or smudge, a very good copy. First edition of the Roman Catholic version of the Bible, the Old Testament in a contemporary Douai binding, presentation copy from John Knatchbull, vice-president of the English College at Douai to Lady Joanna Berkeley (1555/6–1616), abbess of the Benedictine Convent of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady, Brussels, with his inscription at the head of the title page of vol. 2: "John Knatchbull to the honorable Lady and his most respected mother the Lay [sic] Barkley Abbesse of the English Monastery in Bruxells". Offered here with a pleasing copy of the Rheims New Testament in 17th-century calf, together comprising the first Roman Catholic version of the Bible in English. The English College at Douai was founded in 1568 by William Allen. In September 1579 Allen announced the project of a new English translation of the Bible. The translation was primarily the work of Gregory Martin (1542?–1582), with the revisions of Allen, Richard Bristow, and William Reynolds. Martin translated the entire Vulgate between September 1578 and July 1580 but the book was published episodically, the New Testament with Bristow's notes at Rheims in 1582 and the Old Testament in two volumes at Douai in 1609–10. As a result complete sets in uniform contemporary bindings are a chimera. "The appearance of a Catholic Bible in English undermined traditional protestant criticism that the Roman church kept scripture out of the hands of the laity. Instead protestant theologians such as Thomas Cartwright, William Whitaker, and William Fulke attacked the credentials of the translators and denounced their work as filled with error. Despite such criticism, revised versions of Martin's translation remained extremely popular throughout the English-speaking world for nearly four hundred years" (ODNB).

Insgesamt guter Zustand. "Johannes van den Driesche [or Drusius] (28 June 1550 – February 1616) was a Flemish Protestant divine, distinguished specially as an Orientalist, Christian Hebraist and exegete. He was born at Oudenarde, in Flanders. Intended for the church, he studied Greek and Latin at Ghent, and philosophy at Leuven; but his father having been outlawed for his religion, and deprived of his estate, retired to England, where the son followed him in 1567. He found a teacher of Hebrew in Antoine Rodolphe Chevallier, with whom he resided for some time at Cambridge. In 1572 he became professor of Oriental languages at Oxford. Upon the pacification of Ghent (1576) he returned with his father to their own country, and was appointed professor of Oriental languages at the University of Leiden in the following year. In 1585 he removed to Friesland, and was admitted professor of Hebrew in the university of Franeker, an office which he discharged with great honour till his death. He acquired a reputation as a professor, and his class was frequented by students from all the Protestant countries in Europe. He was learned in Hebrew and in Jewish antiquities; and in 1600 the states-general employed him, at a salary of 400 florins a year, to write notes on the difficult passages in the Old Testament; but this work was not published until after his death. As the friend of Jacobus Arminius, he was charged by the Contra-Remonstrant party with unfairness in the execution of the task, and the last sixteen years of his life were therefore marred by controversy. He carried on an extensive correspondence with the learned in different countries; for, besides letters in Hebrew, Greek and other languages, there were found amongst his papers upwards of 2000 written in Latin. He had a son, John, who died in England at the age of twenty-one, and was accounted a prodigy of learning. He had mastered Hebrew at the age of nine, and Scaliger said that he was a better Hebrew scholar than his father. He wrote a large number of letters in Hebrew, besides notes on the Proverbs of Solomon and other works. Jean-Noël Paquot states the number of the printed works and treatises of the elder Drusius at forty-eight, and of the unprinted at upwards of twenty. Of the former more than two-thirds were inserted in the collection entitled Critici sacri, sive annotata doctissimorum virorum in Vetus et Novum Testamentum (Amsterdam, 1698, in 9 vols folio, or London, 1660, in 10 vols. folio). Amongst the works of Drusius not to be found in this collection may be mentioned: Alphabetum Hebraicum vetus (1584, 4to) Tabulae in grammaticam Chaldaicam ad usum juventutis (1602, 8vo) An edition of Sulpicius Severus (Franker, 1807, 12mo) Opuscula quae ad grammaticam spectant omnia (1609, 4to) Lacrymae in obitum J.

Minimali macchioline ed aloni ad alcune cc., minima mancanza al margine inferiore della c. 192 della prima parte e restauro alla c. 216 della seconda parte. Restauri alla carta decorata del dorso. Ottima copia nell'insieme. Edizione originale delle 202 novelle del Malespini. Ricalcando quasi letteralmente la cornice boccacciana del grande paradigma novellistico del "Decameron", lo scrittore fiorentino finge le sue novelle ambientate in una villa del Trevigiano, e narrate da una brigata fuggita da Venezia a causa della peste. Esse sono solo per una novantina originali e derivano, nel resto, oltre che dal Certaldese, dal "Cent nouvelles nouvelles", dalla "Diana" di Giorgio di Montemayor, dal "Mambriano" del Cieco da Ferrara, da Anton Francesco Doni. Di singolare interesse le novelle contenenti precisi riferimenti alla realtà storica, come gli amori di Bianca Capello e di Francesco de'Medici (particolarmente insistiti sono i temi licenziosi, anch'essi sostanziali calchi del "Decameron") o efferati delitti del tempo. "La raccolta è divisa in due parti: la prima contiene 106 novelle, la seconda 96. Nella prima parte sono presenti due novelle replicate, sicché il titolo descrittivo si può considerare esatto. Da principio il libro sembra volersi inserire in una tradizione boccacciana ormai al declino: un Argomento delle novelle introduce la raccolta e traccia una cornice esile e pretestuosa che ritrae un gruppo di gentiluomini trevigiani rifugiatisi in villa per sfuggire alla peste del 1576 e desiderosi di ingannare il tempo novellando. L'impalcatura del libro cede immediatamente e lascia spazio a un susseguirsi di novelle giustapposte senza nessun evidente nesso logico o cronologico. Consueti i temi attorno ai quali ruotano i racconti: beffe, furti, inganni, amori tragici o licenziosi, storie di viaggio e fatti di cronaca. Il riuso di materiali preesistenti, comune a tutta la tradizione novellistica, nelle Ducento novelle assume dimensioni imponenti: quasi la metà del materiale consta di una sciatta riscrittura di novelle della raccolta quattrocentesca francese Cent nouvelles nouvelles; altre fonti sono il Mambriano, le opere di Anton Francesco Doni e la Diana enamorada del portoghese Jorge de Montemayor. Rimane un nucleo di novelle originali in prevalenza ambientate fra Venezia, Firenze e Milano, che più o meno scopertamente si presentano come autobiografiche, anche se di questa autobiografia, che passa attraverso la lente deformante della sublimazione del ricordo e che si nutre di una pervasiva letterarietà, è lecito più volte dubitare. Questi racconti conservano notevoli descrizioni di costumi e usi locali ritratti dal vivo con dovizia di particolari, e tramandano affreschi verosimili, se non veritieri, tanto della vita popolare e caotica di Venezia quanto dell'ambiente di corte nella Firenze del granduca Francesco I e di Bianca Cappello. L'orchestrazione drammatica delle novelle è alquanto sconnessa e la lingua, un toscano letterario appesantito da una sintassi e da una morfologia incerte, riceve dalla tradizione teatrale cinquecentesca la tendenza a un uso stereotipato e caratterizzante del dialetto e degli idiomi stranieri. Le Ducento novelle si presentano dunque con un profilo ambiguo, irrisolto nella struttura a cavallo fra raccolta di novelle e romanzo autobiografico, decisamente più interessanti per alcuni contenuti cronachistici e per la vivida immagine riflessa di una società febbrile e picaresca che per il valore letterario, complessivamente molto modesto." (Daniele Ghirlanda in D.B.I., LXVIII, 2007). Il Malespini, nato a Verona o a Venezia nel 1531, morto dopo il 1609, mutò in Celio il suo nome di battesimo, Orazio. Tradusse in volgare il Trésor di Brunetto Latini e il Giardino dei fiori curiosi di A. Torquemada e fu anche avventuriero nelle Fiandre, al servizio della Spagna, dopo essere stato esiliato dal governo di Venezia, nonché abile falsario e plagiario: infatti, a lui è dovuta, nel 1580, la pubblicazione abusiva, con il titolo Il Goffredo, dei primi 14 canti della Gerusalemme Liberata. Letterio Di Francia in Novellistica, II, pp. 154-168 e in Enciclopedia Italiana, XXII, 15: "Opera di qualche pregio sono le sue Duecento novelle, composte a Mantova dal 1595 al 1605 per fuggire l'ozio, e pubblicate a Venezia nel 1609".

In 1612 Bleau took the plate over and eventually broke the top left corner (where a crack is visible in this copy). Nontheless the plate remained to be used until 1648.

A very good copy. Joseph Hall (15741656), eminent prelate and author, was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and became bishop of Exeter, (162741), and of Norwich, (164147). The rise of Puritanism involved him in serious church difficulties, and his vigorous defence of the episcopacy against its attackers resulted in his imprisonment in 1641 on charges of high treason. He was eventually released, but he lived the remainder of his life in poverty. Hall's most notable work, his verse satires, modelled after the Roman satirist Juvenal, appeared in two parts: Virgidemiarum or Toothless Satires (1597) and Biting Satires (1598). He also wrote prose satires, poems, meditations, and autobiographical tracts. Our work was written and published early in his career.

        The Holie Bible faithfully translated into English, out of the authentical Latin.

      Douai: by Laurence Kellam,, 1609–10. Diligently conferred with the Hebrew, Greeke, and other Editions in divers languages. With Arguments of the Bookes, and Chapters: Annotations: Tables: and other helpes, for better understanding of the text: for discoverie of Corruptions in some late translations: and for clearing Controversies in Religion. By the English College of Doway. 2 volumes, quarto (210 x 160 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, recased on new tawed leather slips, new leather ties, new endleaves, old flyleaves preserved. Housed in a black cloth flat-back box by the Chelsea Bindery. Early ink signature at the foot of the title "And[rew] Cross his Booke" and heavily deleted inscription in the centre "Thomas Parry de [?Roylage] / Ex dono Maria Cross [–]". Titles and last few pages a little dusty, occasional small marks, minor worming in the fore-margin of Vol. II in places, a few neat paper repairs to the extremities at front and back, overall a very good copy. First edition of the Old Testament in the English Catholic version. In 1578 the Roman Catholic priest Gregory Martin (1542?–1582), recently recalled from Rome to the English College at Rheims (itself newly transferred from Douai), "embarked on an English translation of the Bible. [Cardinal] Allen announced the project in September 1578. He, Richard Bristow, and William Reynolds were involved primarily as revisers: the work was Martin's. Between September 1578 and July 1580 Martin translated the entire Vulgate. The New Testament of Iesus Christ with Bristow's notes was published at Rheims in 1582. For financial reasons ("our poore estate in banishment") the Old Testament did not appear until the two volumes of The Holie Bible were published at Douai in 1609–10. The appearance of a Catholic Bible in English undermined traditional protestant criticism that the Roman church kept scripture out of the hands of the laity. Instead protestant theologians such as Thomas Cartwright, William Whitaker, and William Fulke attacked the credentials of the translators and denounced their work as filled with error. Despite such criticism, revised versions of Martin's translation remained extremely popular throughout the English-speaking world for nearly four hundred years" (ODNB).

        Le Fortificationi, … con l’aggiunta del sesto libro. Doue si mostra con la Scienza, e con la Pratica, l’ordine di Fortificare le CittÃ, .

      Francesco Rampazetto, 1609., Venice: - Two parts in one. Folio. Collation: a6, A4, B2, C8, D2, E6, F2, G-H2, I8, K6, L4, M-P8, Q6, R8, S6, T-Aa8, Bb4. Pagination: [12], 303, [1] pp. Includes title page for book six (first added in this edition). Engraved portrait of the author by W. Kilian, numerous large and small woodcuts and diagrams in text, decorated initials. Contemporary vellum, minor stains, title to head of spine in old ink. Inner front hinge opened at top. Few pages with slight toning, some foxing, small tape repair to last leaf (register), otherwise a very nice copy. EARLY WORK ON CONSTRUCTING FORTIFICATIONS. Second, enlarged edition (with additional sixth book and added illustrations). “Lorini’s work is the first systematic course of instruction in all aspects of military architecture, and the first work to give measured plans it its illustrations” - Breman. “Buonaiuto Lorini (circa 1538- circa 1611), was born in Florence, won a great reputation in the sixteenth century for his intelligent fortifications and the way he fiercely defended cities. He was employed by the kings of France and Spain, and also by the Dodges of Venice. Lorini’s treatise is divided in five books, written in the form of a dialogue with a count (identified as the military man Bestore Martinengo). The present work contains a wealth of practical detail and a long and detailed section on the machine tools of construction. In 1609 Lorini added the sixth book to his work.” -Breman. “Lorini published a treatise, Delle Fortificationi, which outlined the expectations of a good working design. It centers around the problem of determining which plans succeed, and what qualifications of an engineer are requisite. Design, Lorini suggests, is necessary to all arts, but especially to command. Lorini conceives of design as a process, which allows one to represent both concepts and things as they really are. Design is especially valuable because of concepts and things, invention and nature, can interact together on the simple piece of paper. While this may be a specific interpretation of the role of the architect, Lorini highlights here the importance of clarifying one’s invention through design.” â€" Wolfgang Lefevre, Picturing Machines, 1400-1700, MIT Press, Cambridge, (2004). Book I: That fortification is a science and lays out basic principles and terminology. Book II: The practical construction of works, including bridges, gates, walls, and how to arm them. Book III: Overview of the most significant fortification methods in use to date. Book IIII: Explaining how to adapt planned fortifications according to their situation and renovate old defensive works. Book V: Dedicated to machines of construction, describing and illustrating hoists, and tackle, water-raising engine, dredger for draining swamps, ropes, diving bell for subterranean work, mills, folding ladders, and pontoon bridges. Book VI: Lorini’s own experiences in the field, sieges, practical problems, portable fences, likely trajectory of cannon balls, making artillery mobile and protection. “Palmanova and Valletta [both Italian fortified cities] sprang from experiments, though none was as thorough or as spectacular. …the fortress-city must be understood as a development of the geometrically previse citadel, integrating the planned town and the protective fortresses into a single body. Though the four- or five- bastioned citadel is often the prototype, the history of influence is a short one: citadels and fortress-cities are developed almost synchronously and probably owe much to one another. For example, the radial fortress-city designed by Lorini, with its nine bastions and concentric ring roads linking the radial streets that converge on the central square, unmistakingly approximates the realized design of Palmanova.” â€" Pollack, p. 163.

      Paris, Sonnius, 1609. - in-8, 12ff.n.ch.- 591pp. Reliure de l'époque vélin ivoire souple. Marion Simon fut "le seul grand légiste que le Nivernais eut possédé au XVI°s., car il a conseillé les princes". Ce fils de notaire naquit à Nevers en 1540. Conseiller au Parlement, il ?uvra à l'établissement des frontières d'Artois et des possessions espagnoles dans les Flandres. Le cardinal Du Perron a dit "qu'il avait le don de persuader en discourant et n'émouvait pas moins lorsqu'il écrivait. Depuis Cicéron, il n'y a pas eu d'autres avocats que lui.". Il prit fermement position contre les jésuites. Marion fut le beau-père d'Antoine Arnauld, et c'est lui qui obtint d'Henry IV l'abbaye de Port-royal pour la Mère Angélique. - Les quatre premiers plaidoyers de ce recueil ont pour sujet les livres et l'imprimerie : "Sur l'impression du Droict Canon" ; "Sur l'impression des ?uvres de Sénèque, reveües & annotées par feu Marc Antoine Muret" ; "Sur l'impression des messels, Breviaires, Heures & Iournaux, réformez selon le Concile de Trente" ; ou encore "Pour l'immunité des Livres". Dans ce dernier, Simon Marion fait l'éloge de l'écriture et de l'imprimerie. (Guy Coquille et les auteurs nivernais, Soc. Acad. du Nivernais, p. 56 - Guéneau p. 120). - Mouillures et macules, coutures très distendues, quelques feuillets pratiquement déreliés.

        Gods Arrow Against Atheists.

      Imprinted by F[elix].K[ingston] for Thomas Pauier,, London: 1609 - Collation: A-F8, G4. Pagination: [4], 12, 9-96p. Rebacked modern calf, gilt borders to bands, red title label, over new marbled boards. New endpapers. Corners slightly rounded, minor soiling and some light dampstains to outer margins, title with contemporary ink note ?AB? at inner margin. Lacks blanks. Overall, a nice copy of a scarce work. ?This work by Henry Smith (1550-1591) is a gem. However, Henry Smith is little known. Smith?s works are comprehensively outstanding. He lived only a short time (dying at the age of 41, although some documentation exists showing he may have died at 51). He was a second generation reformer and a precursor to Puritanism. he fills a gap in his lifetime of rubbing shoulders with the fathers of puritanism (men like William Perkins, William Ames and Thomas Cratwright, as well as his mentor Richard Greenham. In his day he was known as a powerful preacher - the ?prime preacher of the nation? This particular book was one of Smiths most popular works, and went through dozens of editions and reprints during his lifetime (his sermons in general had gone through eighty-five editions by 1620). Gods Arrow focuses on utterly destroying paganism, Islam and Roman Catholicism, with an exhortation to unite Christ?s church in the truth rather than divide it.? [-McMahon, editor, preface to Gods Arrow Against Atheists, 2012].?His (Smith) preaching brought him such fame that he was known as ?silver-tongued-Smith? In Gods Arrow Against Atheists he not only attacks Muslims but other opponents of the Christianity of the Church of England, from atheists, infidels throughout the world, and Roman Catholics, to Brownists and Barrowists. His conclusion is that ?the Church of England is the true Church of God from which it is utterly unlawfull to make a separation.? [- Pailin, Attitudes to Other Religions, 1984].STC 22725 mentions that editions of STC 22737 and 22667 are called for in the table of contents of ?The Sermons of Master Henry Smith? (1604).
