Diese Ausgabe wurde wiederum 1622 von J. Treudel als Titelausgabe herausgegeben. Die Qualität der Kupferstiche, die Choulant in ihrer Bedeutung in der Geschichte der anatomischen Darstellung mit den Holzschnitten von Vesal vergleicht, sind Nachstiche zum Teil nach den Vorlagen des Zürcher Illustrators Josias Maurer, die dieser für Casserios Werk "De vocis auditusque organis historia anatomica" (1600/01). gezeichnet hatte. Casseri dehnte seine Untersuchungen auf alle fünf Sinnesorgane beim Mensch und Tier aus. Die Qualität der Abdrucke in unserem Exemplar lassen auf eine Ausgabe von 1610 oder 1612 schliessen.

Solis y Ribadeneyra, Antonio de (1610-1686)
In 5 books with frontispiece, 6 foldout plates and 2 maps one of which folds out. Books I & II 163 pages; Books III & IV 252 pages; Book V 152 pages. Small folio (14 1/4" x 9 1/2") bound in full original leather with gilt lettering to spine. Translated by Thomas Townsend. First edition into English.Antonio de Solís y Ribadeneyra (1610 - April 19, 1686), Spanish dramatist and historian, was born at Alcalá de Henares (less probably, Plasencia). He studied law at Salamanca, where he produced a comedy entitled Amor y obligación, which was acted in 1627. He became secretary to the count of Oropesa, and in 1654 he was appointed secretary of state as well as private secretary to Philip IV. Later he obtained the lucrative post of chronicler of the Indies, and, on taking orders in 1671 severed his connection with the stage. He died at Madrid on the 19th of April 1686. Of his ten extant plays, two have some place in the history of the drama. El Antor al use was adapted by Scarron and again by Thomas Corneille as L'Amour de la mode, while La Gitanilla de Madrid, itself founded on the novela of Cervantes, has been utilized directly or indirectly by P A Wolff, Victor Hugo and Longfellow. The titles of the remaining seven are Triunfos de amor y fortuna, Eurídice y Orfeo, El Alcetzar del secrete, Las Amazonas, El doctor Carlino, Un bobo hace ciento, and Amparar el enemigo. Amor y obligación survives in a manuscript at the Biblioteca Nacional. The Historia de la conquista de México, población y progresos de la América septentrional, conocida por el nombre de Nueva España, covering the thre … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARINELLO Giovanni
In-16 p. (mm. 151x90), mz. pergam. ottocent., tit. oro su tassello al dorso, 24 cc.nn., 327 cc.num. Terza edizione. Cfr. Wellcome,I,4063. ?Giovanni Marinelli (Marinello), nacque nella prima metà del XVI sec. Nel 1563 licenziò il trattato in tre libri, "Le medicine partenenti.." che intendeva fornire consigli pratici in materia di ostetricia e ginecologia; tuttavia, mentre alla trattazione di temi quali la gravidanza, il parto e il puerperio viene sostanzialmente dedicato il solo terzo libro, ampio spazio finisce per occupare la discussione sul matrimonio e sulla procreazione. Il primo libro, infatti, appare incentrato sulle fasi precedenti le nozze, e in particolare sugli accorgimenti utili all?armonia e al buon assortimento della coppia; mentre il secondo esamina aspetti e problemi della vita matrimoniale, prestando speciale attenzione ai disturbi legati alla sessualità e all?impotenza sia maschile sia femminile. .

[DONNE, JOHN].
London: Printed by W. Stansby for Walter Burre, 1610. First edition. 392 pages, 4to, 18th century half calf and marbled boards, black leather label, gilt rules and lettering. With the two often-missing leaves following the Table of the Chapters, containing the Advertisement to the Reader and the Errata. . John Donne's first book, a polemical treatise on the supremacy of the King, which some Donne scholars have maintained was written specifically at the behest of King James. Donne argues that those Roman Catholics who refuse to submit to the authority of the King have brought punishment on themselves and are therefore not real martyrs but "pseudo-martyrs." As Keynes notes, Pseudo-Martyr was "carelessly printed and contains a large number of misprints." The errata records a long list, at least 18 of which have been corrected in the text of this copy in a contemporary hand. Ink signature of "Sam Foley / 1689" in the upper margin of the title-page; below that is an earlier signature that has been marked through, apparently by Sam Foley, and is not decipherable by ordinary means. Minor wear to the binding including some rubbing to the joints, a few minor water-stains and occasional foxing, some line borders trimmed by the binder in the upper margin, as usual with this book, still an unusually large, fresh, and attractive copy, enclosed in a custom clamshell box.

BRAHE, TYCHO. - [THE ASTRONOMICAL LETTERS OF TYCHO BRAHE]
Francofurti apud Godefridum Tampachium, 1610. (Colophon: Uraniburgi, Ex Officina Typhographica Authoris, 1596). 4to. Bound to style in a fine later full vellum with handwritten title to spine. In all 176 leaves. (40),309,(1 - Errata Typhographica),(1 - Brahe's large woodcut device "Astronomien"). In the text 6 woodcuts (map of Hven, Uraniborg (full page) and Stjerneborg (full page)). Upper margins with faint small remains of dampstaining, mainly at end. Otherwise clean, as it is probably washed when given a new binding. A bit of fraying to upper margins of the last 10 leaves, not affecting the letters. According to Lauritz Nielsen, "some copies of this issue has an engraved portrait of Brahe pasted to verso of titlepage" - This copy without portrait. ¶ First edition, third issue. Nearly all of the book is printed on Hven on Brahe's own handpress, as only the title-sheet and title-page are changed by the Frankfurt-printer Tampach. Friends of Brahe, in particular Henrik Rantzau, urged Brahe to publish his correspondence, and the printing of this is known to have started long before 1590. However, as with all of Brahe's major works from the printing-office on Hven, it took many years before the book was finished. The contents mainly consist in the letters exchanged with Landgraf Wilh. of Hessen and his Court-astronomer, Christoffer Rothmann. Included in the book is a description written in German of the buildings and instruments found at Hven."This is the early correspondance of Brahe with the learned Landgraf William of Hesse containing detailed instructions for the construct … [Click Below for Full Description]

Linschoten, Jan Huygen
Amsterdam: Th�odore Pierre, 1610. Six engraved maps on eight sheets (two double-page, two folding, two on two folding sheets), fifty-eight engraved in-text illustrations. Folio. Expertly bound to style in old vellum. Five illustrations shaved into image area; occasional expert restoration. Very good. In a half black morocco and cloth folding box. Very rare first edition in French of the great classic of travel literature. "When Linschoten returned from Goa to his home in the Netherlands, he did so at a time when the people of northern Europe and particularly his countrymen were especially interested in what he had to report concerning the trading activities of the Portuguese in the East. He had lived in Goa for six years from 1583, and while he never ventured far from the Portuguese capital, he did have an 'avaricious thirst for knowledge which enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China'" - Penrose. But his most important and far-reaching observations concerned the gradual decline of Portuguese power in the East and her ability to protect her trade routes and monopolies. This, together with the trading possibilities he detailed, encouraged a series of Dutch, French, and English fleets to set sail for the Spice Islands and beyond to China and Japan. An important work that served not only as a valuable record, but also as a catalyst for change in the balance of power amongst European trading nations in the east. This first edition in French is translated from the Latin edition of Linschoten published in parts II- … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRANCACCIO, Lelio. The Spanish army, a model for contemporary military training
Antwerp, Joachim Trognesius, 1610. 4to. [7 + 1 blank]f + 272p + [10]f. Text in roman & italic. Engraved title with allegorical figures and emblems of warfare + 5 finely engraved folding plates showing battle formations and military encampments. Ornamental woodcut head-pieces and initials. Contemporary vellum; rebacked. First edition of this treatise on the duties of the various military ranks and on military science in general by the Neapolitan Lelio Brancaccio, Marchese de Montesilvano (c.1560-1637), who served as military administrator in the Netherlands under Ambrogio Spinola. In 14 chapters the author describes the responsibilities of each rank from the common soldier to the general; 2 chapters are devoted to the office of chief of staff, a position he held under the King of Naples; the last chapter discusses the obligations of the prince to keep his army in good order. Three of the fine folding engravings illustrate formations of battle orders, two show fortified camps allocating correct locations for every unit. The manual was much in demand judging by four Italian reprints and a Spanish translation by Scavino (Barcelona, 1639) listed by Cockle. A few neat repairs in blank margins of first 2 leaves, occasional light traces of wear, otherwise a very good, clean copy with a contemporary French manuscript ownership entry, dated 1618, on verso of front flyleaf. Cockle 609; Jähns 579; Lipperheide Qb27 (war costume); Piantanida 1416. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Brancaccio Lelio
appressio Ioachimo Trognesio, in Anversa, 1610. In-4° (263x170mm), pp. (14), 272, (20) di indice, errata e privilegio, legatura coeva p. pergamena con unghie. Tagli azzurri. Frontespizio con titolo entro ricca bordura figurata incisa su rame a motivi militari. Dedica a stampa ad Alberto Arciduca d'Austria, Duca di Borgogna e di Brabante. Testatine e capilettera figurati incisi su legno. 5 tavv. calcografiche ripiegate f.t. di disposizioni e schieramenti militari, accampamenti, assalti a fortezze, manovre. Antica firma in parte cassata al frontespizio. L'opera è preceduta da un sonetto in volgare e da un epigramma latino del letterato fiorentino Girolamo Fortini. Lavori di tarlo mai toccanti il testo al margine inferiore e al margine interno delle ultime cc. di indice; alcune bruniture ininfluenti. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione. A Napoli il Brancaccio prese a scrivere un trattato di arte militare, dal titolo Carichi militari o Fucina di Marte, nel quale trattò dei compiti che spettano a ciascun grado della milizia, dal soldato sino al maestro di campo generale, concludendo con una esposizione dei doveri del principe nei riguardi del suo esercito. L'opera, dedicata all'arciduca Alberto d'Asburgo, non ha maggiore interesse delle molte altre simili trattazioni del tempo, anche se in essa si avverte la già lunga ed intensa esperienza militare del Brancaccio; importanti sono alcuni cenni del Brancaccio ai campi trincerati. Il trattato ebbe un buon successo, contandosene in un trentennio ben tre edizioni, ad Anversa nel 1610, a Milano nel 1620 ed a Venezia nel 1641 (G. De Caro in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Compiled from a range of Byzantine and western histories, travellers' reports and letters, together with material from Leunclavius's recent Latin translation of a late fifteenth-century Ottoman chronicle, Knolles's was the first major work on the subject to appear in English, and was quickly recognized as a masterpiece of narrative synthesis-DNB.

Agostino, la Fede e la Religione, e 1 tavola incisa su rame che raffigura l'esaltazione della Croce. Nel testo numerosi legni. Inoltre, testatine, finalini e capilettera incisi su legno.Legatura in piena pergamena. Dorso con rari fori di tarlo.Il Trattato dell Croce di Bosio è una rara quanto interessante opera di carattere storico e iconografico attorno al significato della Croce nella religione cristiana, e in particolare nel mistero della passione, croce e morte di Cristo.L'opera è divisa in sei libri, nei quali il simbolo della croce viene individuato nelle diverse civiltà, presso le quali di volta in volta si ritrova in una diversa maniera e con un diverso significato, così ad esempio presso i greci e i latini, ripercorrendo nel primo libro la storia, basata su varie fonti, della crocifissione e degli altri martiri di Cristo; nel secondo libro la ricerca da adito a curiosi spunti, quando l'autore ritrova il segno della croce in animali, piante e nelle creature di dio; il terzo libro ricerca I passi dell'antico testamento in cui si parla della croce, e il successivo le profezie, gli oracoli e i vaticini inerenti a questa. Il quinto libro è decisamente il più singolare e interessante Nell'ultimo si tratta della passione, morte e resurrezione, del primigenio uso che i cristiani fecero della croce, nella primitiva chiesa e nei secoli successivi.L'apparato iconografico è particolamente variegato ed esaustivo … [Click Below for Full Description]

The impetus for Wright's publication of the first edition of Certaine Errors came from his outrage at two apparent cases of plagiarism. A well-regarded navigator, Abraham Kendall, died at sea (1596) in possession of a manuscript copy of Wright's work, and this text, retrieved and brought to London, was taken to be Kendall's own, until it was passed to Wright for his review. At roughly the same time the cartographer Jodocus Hondius (15631612), who was deeply chagrined upon the discovery of his borrowing, used Wright's methods without acknowledgement in one of his maps -ODNB.
