Ecrit sous l'inspiration de Sully, Jean Baudouin sous le pseudonyme de Antoine de Bandole, avocat au Parlement de Provence, fait un parallèle de la vie de César et de celle d'Henri IV dont l'intérêt est de montrer un roi belliqueux. Ce récit est adressé au Dauphin à qui il donne beaucoup de conseils pour mener une armée. Il note dans son récit que : « César ne tenait aucun compte des prédictions , moins encore Henry ». Quant à Pierre de l'Estoile, il rapporte que le matin de sa mort, Henri IV vit venir à lui son fils, le duc Alexandre de Vendôme, qui lui dit que sa mort avait été prédite pour ce jour. Le roi, après avoir bien ri, lui rappelle que seul Dieu décide de l'heure de la mort.Titre-frontispice et figures gravées dans le texte. Malgré une pagination chaotique, l'ouvrage est bien complet de ses trois parties et de leurs pièces liminaires non paginées, suivies de la table chronologique dont le verso du dernier feuillet indique : Achevé d'imprimer le douziesme May mil six cens neuf.Bel exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de la famille Prunier de Saint-André avec la devise Turris Mea Deus.

Hanoviae (Hanau), excudebat Gulielmus Antonius, 1609. in-folio, pp. 60, 222, (2), (segnatura a-g4, h2, A-Z, Aa-Ee4); precedono la numerazione frontespizio, ritratto, una tabella doppia e 9 tavole; altra tabella dopo pag. 8; in fine al testo la tavola dell'ossifraga. Intonso in cartone rustico (restauri al dorso). Edizione definitiva di una delle più straordinarie opere dell'intera letteratura cabalistico-alchemica, di mitica rarità. Il curioso ed occulto testo prende spunto dal commento esoterico ad alcuni versetti biblici tratti dai Proverbi di Salomone e dalla Sapienza. "Si tratta di un discorso ad alta temperatura mistica, corredato di invocazioni, esortazioni, interiezioni esorcistiche, spesso in elaborata composizione tipografica, che descrive sette gradi di ascesi e di scoperta della sapienza.. è ricco di riferimenti all'alchimia, alla Cabbala, alla dottrina delle segnature e ad altri temi dell'ermetismo" (U. Eco). E' illustrato da un frontespizio allegorico inciso, ritratto dell'autore, 5 tavole rettangolari e 4 tavole circolari e una tavola con ossifraga occhialuta; due tabelle sinottiche magico-cabalistiche f.t. "Oscure ma decisamente affascinanti sono le tavole. Sono complesse costruzioni verbovisive, dove cartigli, didascalie, composizioni a rebus si fondono con rappresentazioni simboliche.

1609. Woodcut celestial globe on title page, 14 woodcut diagrams, 2 folding leaves. Greek and roman type, text in two columns. 4to (200 x 165mm). [4]ff, 367pp, [11]ff (final leaf blank). Contemporary limp vellum, title inked at head of spine, remains of paper shelf label at foot, overlapping fore-edges (lacking ties, minor worming at hinges). Augustae Vindelicorum [Augsburg], David Franck, 1609. Presentation copy from the author to Conrad Pius Peutinger (1520-1613), son of the Augsburg diplomat and humanist. Attractive edition in very good condition of prolific mathematician, medic, astronomer and philosopher Georg Henisch's (1549-1618) Latin translation of the Sphaera. Henisch's first translation of the Sphaera was printed in Augsburg in 1575 as part of his Tabulae Institutionum Astronomicarum; for this, the first edition of the work on its own, he revised the text and added a commentary, based, as he writes, on his lectures at the Gymnasium St Anna in Augsburg where he taught logic and mathematics. After the translation and before the commentary is a discussion of the subject matter, including a list of definitions and hypotheses from geometry, physics and astronomy (Todd, 47). While attributed to fourth-century neo-Platonist Proclus, the Sphaera was in fact an excerpt of four chapters of Geminus' Elementa Astronomiae, written in the first century BC; mistakes of attribution likely took place in the fifteenth century (Todd, 12) and were addressed only a century later, in 1585, by Francesco Barozzi who identified them as a portion of the Elementa rather than an independent … [Click Below for Full Description]

[BRAZIL - DUTCH INCURSIONS].
A detailed report, apparently advising the Portuguese government on the dangers of Dutch incursions in Portuguese colonies, especially in Brazil. The report contains 30 numbered articles. Articles 1, 2 and 26 explicitly name Brazil, but many others name "India", which can refer to the Indies (Brazil was regarded as part of the West Indies). During the 12 Years' Truce (1609-1621), the Dutch agreed not to attack Portuguese ships or territories, but in 1621 the Dutch set up the West India Company to attempt to capture a great deal of the lucrative trade in the New World. The capture of Bahia in 1624 proved short-lived, the Portuguese retaking it in 1625, but in 1630 the Dutch captured Pernambuco and much of the surrounding territory, forming a Dutch colony in Brazil that they were to keep until 1654. The present document is undated, but its references to the Dutch "robberies" in Brazil and to the restoration show it dates after the capture and recapture of Bahia in 1624 and 1625, and apparently before the capture of Pernambuco in 1630. Another (shorter) version of the same report (some articles match nearly word for word), published by Da Silva Tullio, is apparently dated 1628, which seems to suit the present version as well.The ink or quill used damaged some of the paper resulting in the loss of several letters and words, mostly affecting the second and third leaf.

Jodocus HONDIUS (1563 - 1612)
1609. Attrattiva carta dell'Africa, pubblicata da Jodocus Hondius per le numerose edizioni del Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae Meditationes, edite dal 1606 al 1630. La carta fa parte delle 37 nuove mappe incise da Hondius per aggiornare l'opera cartografica del Mercator. La geografia di questa mappa deriva da diverse fonti, prima fra tutte la mappa dell'Africa di Mercator del 1595, con aggiunte e modifiche, ma Hondius aveva anche accesso ai vari libri di esplorazione di Pigafetta, Ramusio e altri, integrati con le più recenti pubblicazioni olandesi, come ad esempio l'Itinerario di Van Linschoten. La mappa, dunque, costituisce una sorta di transizione tra la geografia di Ortelius e Mercator, e quella più moderna di Blaeu, Claesz e altri, dei primi decenni del '600. Questa mappa è conosciuta in un unico stato. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottime condizioni. "This is an attractive map by Jodocus Hondius showing the continent of Africa. ""Hondius map of Africa is an important transitional map, bridging the earlier work of Ortelius, Mercator and others, with the more modern maps of Willem Blaeu in 1608, Claesz. in 1617, and others. The geography for this map is taken from a variety of sources. Some of the interior of Africa is based on Mercator's 1595 map of Africa, but numerous additions and changes have been made. Hondius had access to the books of exploration of Africanus, Pigafetta (based on the travel account of Duarte Lopez), Ramusion, De Barros, and others.

Orazio BRUNI o BRUNETTI (attivo a Siena primi decenni del XVII secolo)
1609. "Bulino, firmato in lastra nel cartiglio. Esemplare nell'unico stato conosciuto. Bellissima prova su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'immagine raffigura in primo piano uomini di differente estrazione sociale, che brandendo armi e utensili vari si rivoltano contro la Morte che, davanti alla folla, sta per scoccare una freccia. A destra il Tempo, preceduto dalla Fama, sembra voler fuggire. Sullo sfondo animali diversi avanzano minacciosi contro una Morte anch'essa munita di arco e freccia. La stampa deriva in controparte da un bulino edito da Bolswert, a sua volta ripreso da un dipinto di David Vinckeboons del 1610 (Hollstein, Dutch, XXX-VII, p. 20, n. 10). La data 1609 quindi, riportata entro il cartiglio sopra la porta ad arco a sinistra, non corrisponde al vero. D'altro canto su questa stampa numerosi sono gli errori che nel tempo si sono accumulati. A cominciare dal Gori Gandellini che attribuisce a Francesco Merlini (Siena, attivo nel primo decennio del XVII secolo) un Trionfo della Morte da un suo dipinto. Per non parlare del Le Blanc e del Nagler che assegnano l'invenzione del bulino ad Andrea del Sarto. Romagnoli poi, bio¬grafo di artisti senesi, crede di ristabilire la verità affermando: ""accenna il Gan¬dellini che Francesco di Gio. Merlini nel 1609 incise da un suo dipinto il Trionfo della Morte. Erra però questo scrittore mentre il Trionfo della Morte fu disegna¬to dal Merlini ma inciso egregiamente da Orazio Brunetti"".

Précieux témoignage sur le monde gallo-romain au Ve siècle. Caius Sollius Apollinaris Sidonius (Lyon 430 - 486 Clermont-Ferrand), issu d'une famille sénatoriale, fut préfet de Rome en 468, puis évêque de Clermont-Ferrand en 471 où il lutta activement contre les Wisigoths. Il appartint à ces hommes de lettres converti à la vie cléricale. Il a été sanctifié. Cette édition latine réunit l'ensemble de son oeuvre littéraire parvenu jusqu'à nous : soit 9 livres de Lettres et un recueil de 24 poèmes ou Carmina ; commentaires en latin et index. Elle comprend également une biographie de l'auteur complétée de notes érudites en marges. L' oeuvre de Sidoine Apollinaire est remarquable à double titre: d'un point de vue stylistique, il est considéré comme l'un des derniers témoignages littéraires de l'école classique. D'un point de vue historique, il représente un riche témoignage sur le monde gallo-romain du Ve siècle, à Rome mais aussi en Gaulle pendant les invasions barbares, en particulier en Auvergne. Il est également une source essentielle de renseignements sur les grands personnages de son époque, comme l'empereur Avitus, dont il épousa la fille.

Salviani Massiliensis Presbyteri Adversus Avaritiam Sub Nomine Timothei, Ad Ecclesiam Catholicam Epistolares Libri Quatuor Vere Aurei, Digniq[ue] qui in Omnium Linguas Transferantur Nunc Primum In Certa Capita Distincti, Scholiis Marginalibus, Atq[ue] Annotatione Consensus Sanctorum Patrum Illustrati: Per Joannem Macherentinum de Societate Jesu Theologum. Trier: Ex Officina Typographica Henrici Bock, 1609. 28, 226, [10] pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary flexible vellum, later lettering piece to spine, ties lacking. Light rubbing to extremities, some soiling and spotting, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns. Title printed within woodcut typographical border, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves. Early annotations to endleaves, interior otherwise clean. * First edition (by Macherentinus). Salvian of Gaul was an important Christian thinker and canonist of the fifth century. Enhanced with arguments drawn from canon law, his Adversus Avaritiam outlines reasons to give alms to the church. More interesting, it says parents should bequeath their estates to the Church rather than their children; it is better for children to suffer want in this world to save their parents from damnation in the next. Salvian also has much to say on the duty of self-denial by priests, nuns and monks. Macherentinus, the editor of this edition, was a Jesuit theol … [Click Below for Full Description]

Acquaviva d'Aragona Andrea Matteo
Helenopoli (Francoforte sul Meno) Theobaldum Schonvetterrum 1609. 4°, mm 245x190, pp. (20), 171, (21), pergamena coeva morbida, titolo manoscritto al dorso e al taglio inferiore, due mancanze al dorso e una pesante brunitura del solo fascicolo D, copia per il resto genuina e nel complesso ben conservata. Frontespizio in ricca cornice silografica con i ritratti di Aristotele e Plinio, e due vignette, una raffigurante il cielo stellato con i simboli dei segni zodiacali, e una rappresentante animali reali o mitologici; iniziali, incipit e finalini decorati, alcune illustrazioni astronomiche e una tavola ripiegata fuori testo. Seconda edizione stampata da Schonwetter a Francoforte di questa rara opera di stampo umanistico, frutto della passione culturale del Conte di Conversano Matteo Acquaviva d'Aragona. Il trattato è prima di tutto una traduzione commentata dei Moralia di Plutarco, di cui è fornito il testo greco; ma a ben vedere Acquaviva ricalca il modello del principe umanista rinascimentale che, riattraversando le tappe dalla filosofia antica, con particolari riferimenti a Platone e Pitagora e alle loro teorie musicali e astrologiche, giunge a descrivere l'ordine divino del cosmo. Famoso per essere un prode condottiero di ventura, l'autore fu amico tra gli altri di Pontano e Sannazzaro, il suo nutrito interesse per la cultura umanistica lo spinse a impiantare una tipografia a Napoli diretta da Antonio Frezza da Corinaldo.

Homer; George Chapman, translator
London: printed for Samuel Macham, [1609]. First edition. The first twelve books of the Iliad as translated by George Chapman. Seven parts of his translation had appeared in 1598, but this is the first appearance of the other five books. The final twelve books weren't published until 1611. Bound in 17th century speckled calf, rebacked to style with morocco spine label and gilt to spine and boards. Bookplate to front pastedown. Pages (225 x 151mm) collating: [16], 218, [2, blank], [14, dedicatory verses]. Lacking final blank Ff2, as well as two leaves of dedicatory verses, Dd2 and Dd3 (possibly cancels, see below). "The two leaves which in this copy occur after Sig Dd are not conjugate, although they happen to be properly watermarked in the present as well as the British Museum copies. Sig [Dd3] is on heavier paper than Sig [Dd2]. The latter which is rarely present contains on recto a sonnet to Lady Wrothe, and on verso another to the Countess of Montgomery. It may have been printed as Sig [Ff2], which leaf, however, was originally a genuine blank. Sig [Dd3], containing the sonnet to Queen Anne, verso blank, is more frequently found and in some copies is inserted immediately preceding the text... if these conjectures are correct, it is difficult to explain why quire Dd should have had only two leaves, as in most copies it still has, except there was a cancellation." Pforzheimer 168. Some leaves with toning or minor soiling, three leaves with professionally closed tears of about four inches (V1-V3), a few leaves trimmed a bit close on the outer margin, affecting a letter here … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAZIL - DUTCH INCURSIONS].
, . . A detailed report, apparently advising the Portuguese government on the dangers of Dutch incursions in Portuguese colonies, especially in Brazil. The report contains 30 numbered articles. Articles 1, 2 and 26 explicitly name Brazil, but many others name "India", which can refer to the Indies (Brazil was regarded as part of the West Indies). During the 12 Years' Truce (1609-1621), the Dutch agreed not to attack Portuguese ships or territories, but in 1621 the Dutch set up the West India Company to attempt to capture a great deal of the lucrative trade in the New World. The capture of Bahia in 1624 proved short-lived, the Portuguese retaking it in 1625, but in 1630 the Dutch captured Pernambuco and much of the surrounding territory, forming a Dutch colony in Brazil that they were to keep until 1654. The present document is undated, but its references to the Dutch "robberies" in Brazil and to the restoration show it dates after the capture and recapture of Bahia in 1624 and 1625, and apparently before the capture of Pernambuco in 1630. Another (shorter) version of the same report (some articles match nearly word for word), published by Da Silva Tullio, is apparently dated 1628, which seems to suit the present version as well.The ink or quill used damaged some of the paper resulting in the loss of several letters and words, mostly affecting the second and third leaf.
