        DEL PROPRIO, & ULTIMATO FINE DEL POETA. Trattato.

      Per Comin Ventura, In Bergamo 1611 - Prima edizione. Dedicatoria di Giovanni Paolo Gastoldi e di Stefano Santi de Fontani al Vescovo di Bergamo Giovanni Emo. Cm.19x14. Pg.4 bianche, (12), 112. Legatura genuina in piena pergamena, con titoli manoscritti al dorso a quattro nervature. Tagli spruzzati. Marca tipografica incisa al frontespizio, raffigurante la Fortuna in ricca cornice decorativa, con il motto "Bona fortunae". Alcuni capilettera, testatine e finalini calcografici. Il testo è preceduto da due sonetti "in lode dell'Autore" di Lodovico Rota e Grisostomo Talenti. Segue l'Indice in latino. Esemplare assai fresco, in condizioni di conservazione più che buone. Al foglio di guardia ex libris Antonia Suardi Ponti, con il motto "Leggere le buone opere e osservarle". Assai rara edizione originale di un'opera, pubblicata postuma, dell'erudito Marco Publio Fontana (18 gennaio 1548 - 10 novembre 1609), le cui origini non sono del tutto note, sostenendo taluni essere nato a Palosco nel Bergamasco, ed altri nel Bresciano. Ebbe interessi molto vari, spaziando dalla medicina alla botanica, dalla fisiognomica alla chiromanzia, dilettandosi nella pittura, nella scultura e nella musica come suonatore di cembalo. Corrispondente del Marino, ascritto alle Accademie degli Erranti e dei Rapiti, lasciò varie composizioni letterarie, alcune perdute: "Carmina" (1578), "Delphinus" (1582), "Dafne, ovvero Dell'onore" (1595), etc., oltre all'importante "Il sontuoso apparato fatto dalla magnifica citta di Brescia nel felice ritorno dell'ill. & reverendiss. vescovo suo, il cardinale Morosini. Con la spositione de' sensi simbolici che in esso si contengono" (1591), apparato che risulta essere stato da lui stesso predisposto. > Piantanida, 3580, "Edizione originale postuma". Fontanini, "Biblioteca dell'eloquenza italiana", 244, e Haym, 193, citano l'edizione 1615, come pure British Library, I. In SBN censiti solo due esemplari dell'edizione 1513 e cinque dell'edizione 1615, sempre per i tipi di Comin Ventura, Opera sconosciuta a Gamba, Lozzi, Graesse e Brunet. 250 gr.

        Discours sur l'Impuissance de l'Homme et de la Femme. Auquel est...

      1611. Divorce Due to Sexual Dysfunction Tagereau, Vincent. Discours sur l'Impuissance de l'Homme et de la Femme. Auquel est Declare, Que c'est qu'Impuissance Empeschant & Separant le Marriage. Paris: N. Rousset [Roussel], 1611. [viii], 191, [1] pp. Octavo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Later paper-covered boards. Light rubbing to extremities. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, faint dampspotting to a few leaves. Side-notes affected in a few places by shaving, minor tears to margins of a few leaves. Early underlining to some passages in faint pencil, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy of a scarce work. * First edition. A treatise on the dissolution of marriage due to sexual dysfunction. The legal procedure, called "epreuve du congres," was humiliating: before a jury of lawyers, judges and witnesses, the man had to show whether or not he was able to fulfill the duties imposed by marriage. Apparently, testimony sufficed when dealing with female dysfunction. Later editions were published in 1612 and 1655, with reissues of the 1612 edition in 1887, 1900 and 2013. All editions and reissues are scarce. OCLC locates 7 copies of the first edition, 2 in North America (Harvard Law School, UCLA). Another copy located at GWU Law School. Camus, Bibliotheque Choisie des Livres de Droit 1489.

        Traitté de la cavallerie du cavalier Melze. [drophead title].

      [France, early seventeenth century]. - A very early French abridgement of Melzo's infuential military cavalry treatise: Regoli militari sopra il governo e servitio della cavalleria (Antwerp, 1611). Though also published in French at an early date (1615) as Des règles militaires du chevalier Melzo this manuscript is not a copy of either version but probably a version compiled by a French student of the military arts. It follows the arrangement of the printed texts, with its five books and numerous sub-headings, but without the illustrations found in both Italian and French printed volumes. The five books cover: I. The composition of a cavalry regiment; II. Accompanying other regiments and companies; III. Orders; IV. Combat; V. Generalities. Manuscript, small folio (298 × 190 mm), 35 leaves, most written recto and verso in a neat French scribal hand with calligraphic headings, within red ruled borders. Old waterstain affecting upper forecorners throughout. Preserved in recent wrappers to style. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        La Huictme Part des Reports... Heavily Annotated in Contemporary Hand

      1611. First Edition of the Eighth Part of Coke's Reports Annotated Throughout in Contemporary Hand Coke, Sir Edward [1552-1634]. La Huictme Part des Reports de Sr. Edw. Coke Chevalier, Chiefe Iustice del Common Banke: Des Divers Resolutions & Jugements Donez sur Solennes Arguments & Avec-Grand Deliberation & Conference des Tresreverends Iuges & Sages de la Ley, De Cases en Ley Queux ne Fueront Unques Resolus ou Adiudgez par Devant: Et les Raisons & Causes des Dits Resolutions & Iugements.

London: Printed for the Societie of Stationers, 1611. [15], 171 [i.e. 173], [1] ff. Text in Law-French and Latin. Folio (11-1/4" x 7-1/4"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, early initials "RB" blind-stamped to centers, raised bands to spine, fragments of cloth ties, early hand-lettered title to head of text block. Moderate rubbing to extremities, minor chipping to spine ends, corners bumped, a few partial cracks to text block. Light toning to interior, faint dampstaining to lower margins of preliminaries, following five leaves and a few more leaves at rear of text, underlining and annotations throughout text in early hand. * First edition. Coke's Reports are not reports in the conventional sense; they are highly detailed anthologies of precedents organized by topic. Taken together, it forms the most extensive and detailed treatment of common law pleading that had yet appeared. A work of immense authority, it was often cited as The Reports, there being no need to mention the author's name. The annotations in this copy, probably those of a student or practitioner, indicate careful study. Several passages are underlined, there are many brief notes in the margins and several long footnotes keyed to the text. Some of these are case references or glosses; most are interpretive. As a group, the annotations offer valuable insight into a contemporary reader's engagement with this book. English Short-Title Catalogue S4190.

        A CLOSET FOR LADIES AND GENTLEWOMEN. OR, THE ART OF PRESERVING, CONSERVING, AND CANDYING . . . ALSO DIVERS SOVERAIGNE MEDICINES AND SALVES FOR SUNDRY DISEASES

      Printed [by Thomas Purfoot?] for Arthur Iohnson, London 1611 - 120 x 72 mm. (4 3/4 x 2 7/8"). 1 p.l. (title), 190 pp., [44] blank leaves. Two parts in one volume. Second Printing. Contemporary limp vellum, flat spine with ink writing ("Dolightes ad ---"), four small holes for ties, now lacking. In a modern half calf clamshell box by the Abrams Bindery. Inside front cover inscribed in ink, "Mary Squire / her booke"; foot of p. 29 inscribed "Mary Squire / Her Booke / 12." STC 5435. Small chips at top of joints, vellum rather soiled, a number of leaves significantly stained and thumbed (as one would expect with a recipe book), one leaf with short repaired tear into text (no loss), other trivial defects, but still an excellent copy and a remarkable survival, the binding solid and not unpleasant, and the text surprisingly well preserved, given the use it has encountered. Printed the same year as the King James Bible, this is a popular home medical guide with recipes for remedies requiring such exotic ingredients as coral, amber, pearls, and unicorn horn, as well as more prosaic herbs, egg whites, cream, and spirits. First published in 1608, "Closet for Ladies" went to 15 editions by 1656, but as a result of hard use, all of these printings are now quite rare. Then, as now, mothers had the primary responsibility for ministering to the family's ailments, and "closets"--the contemporary term for collections of household recipes--were indispensable to women like our former owner Mary Squire. The ink titling on the spine here suggests that this volume was perhaps confused with a similar book, Sir Hugh Platt's "Delightes for Ladies" (some bibliographers also attribute our "Closet" to Platt). The present work begins with instructions for making preserves, candies, and cordials, but these concoctions were not for pleasure alone; they also had medicinal uses. For example, candy lozenges and cordials could be used to soothe coughs and sore throats. There are numerous recipes for treating common complaints like headaches, colic, and bruises, in addition to instructions for handling more serious matters, including infestations of intestinal worms (a frequent problem before modern sanitation and food safety standards) and potentially life-threatening complications of childbirth. The wide-ranging work even includes some cosmetics recipes, including one for whitening the skin that calls for mercury(!). Because nearly all of these early home remedy books have been destroyed, copies of any kind--let alone complete ones in anything like appealing condition--are seldom encountered. Our 1611 edition of this work is the earliest printing recorded at auction in at least 40 years, and it has appeared just once, in 1992.

        The Faerie Queen: The Shepheards Calendar: Together with the Other Works of England's Arch-Poët, Edm. Spenser: Collected into one Volume, and carefully corrected.

      - London: Printed by H. L. for Mathew Lownes, 1611. Folio, 10 inches x 7 ins., paginating thus: (Faerie Queen) [i-xvi], 363, [3, inc. final blank]; (Shepheards Calendar) [x], 56, (2, blank); (Prosopopoia) 16; (Colin Clout) [26]; (Prothalamion) [4]; (Amoretti) [16]; (Epithalamion) [6]; (Foure Hymnes) [16]; (Daphnaida) [10]; (Complaints) [12]; (The Teares of the Muses) [12]; (Virgils Gnat) (20); (The Ruines of Rome) [6]; (Muiopotmos) [10]; (Visions of the Worlds Vanitie) [6]; (The Visions of Petrarch) [2] pp. General title within woodcut border (McKerrow & Ferguson 212), twelve woodcut illustrations and ornamental borders, decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. (The woodcuts in The Shepheards Calender were used in all the earlier separate editions.) First collected edition of Spenser's works and first folio edition, second (1615?) issue, with the title to The Second Part of the Faerie Queene beginning with signature R, dated 1613 and the colophon dated "16012" [sic]. With the Prosopopoia. Or Mother Hubberds Tale, consisting of a single gathering A of eight leaves and dated 1612 on the title, not found in the first issue. "The first modern English poet to achieve major stature, Spenser demonstrated with his fluency in many meters and stanzaic forms that English waås at least the equal to any other language as a vehicle of great poetry. While his poetry, particularly The Faerie Queene, looks backward as the culmination of the allegorical verse tradition of the Pearl Poet, Langland, and Chaucer, he has influenced with his fertile imagination and especially his sensuous imagery and melodic language nearly every important English poet who followed him."

      Darmstadt Porssius 1611 - (16,5 x 10 cm). 334 S. Pergamentband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - "The work of the miracles of the four elements has the alternative title, Historical Temple of Nature, and is largely drawn from antiquated authors. Not only are the elements still four, but comets are still exhalations in the supreme region of air. Tides, however, are attributed to the moon. According to the tradition of the Magi, there are three kinds of spiritual beings: supercelestial who are very close to God, celestial intelligences for the spheres and stars, and demons for each of the four elements. There are also fiery men and aerial men, and four animals who feed on a single element: the mole on earth, the 'alec' on water, the chameleon on air, and the salamander nourished on fire. Besides miracles of each element, there are alphabetical treatments of birds, quadrupeds, mountains, bodies of water, forests, gardens, trees, herbs, flowers, fruits, cities, temples, towers, bridges, and so on passing from the realm of nature to that of art" (Thorndike). - Der aus Kirchhain in Hessen stammende Kornmann (1579-1627), ein Jurist und Polyhistoriker, verhalf durch sein Werk "Mons Veneris" dem Brocken als Hexenberg zu großer Popularität. - Der Benzing unbekannte Drucker J.

Ein Kompendium des damaligen naturwissenschaftlichen und technischen Wissens. - The work contains "a little of everything: from cosmology to the construction of machines; from the usefulness of natural sciences to the evil influence of demons; from the laws of mechanics to cryptology. It is a mine of facts, both real and imaginary; of notes on the state of the sciences, of superstition, technology, alchemy and various branches of the occult" (DSB). U.a. mit Kapiteln zu: Alchemie, Astrologie, Okkultismus, Wahrsagerei und Magie. Unter "subtilitas" (Feinheit) versteht Cardanus die Wahrnehmung mit den Sinnen und das Verstehen mit dem Verstand, deshalb ist der Mensch nur mit Hilfe der "subtilitas" in der Lage, die Geheimnisse der Natur zu ergründen. - Stempel auf Titel.

        Camino del cielo en lengua mexicana, con todos los requisitos necessarios para conseguir este fin, co[n] todo lo que un Xp[r]iano deue creer, saber, y obrar, desde el punto que tiene uso de razon, hasta que muere.

      En Mexico: En la Emprenta de Diego Lopez Davalos Small 4to (18.5 cm; 7.25"). Fols. 10–11, 13–69, 69[!]–73, [nothing missing] 76, 75, 77–108, 110–23.. 1611 Sole colonial-era edition and one rare in commerce of Fr. Martín de León's famous work for priests ministering to Nahuatl-speaking Indians. Fray Martín is universally held to have been one of the great scholars of the language in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, admired for his fluency and ability to explain complex matters in elegant yet easy to understand expositions, as here in his confessionary, catechism, and calendar essay. Tragedy struck this copy, which lacks the title-leaf, licences, dedication, preliminaries concerning use of the word "Teotlacatl," prologue, the remarks on the Mexican language, the first nine leaves of the catechism in Nahuatl, and fols. 109 and 124–60. Surviving is most of the catechism, the section in Spanish on the syncretism of the Spanish and the Mexican religious calendars, and all but the last half page of the confessionary in Nahuatl, the missing paragraph supplied in early, neat manuscript — the book's sad owner redeeming its losses as best he could? Disbound but sewn; housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell case with marbled paper sides. Waterstaining throughout causing many pages to have an almost uniform tan appearance except in the foremargins; foremargins with shouldernotes shaved. Missing leaves as itemized above; fols. 30, 80–81, and 110–11 damaged with small loss, and repairs to some of these margins plus a few others; other usually minor scattered stains. The interesting woodcut on fol. 100 verso and text on recto, holed, still striking and readable respectively. Pencilled marks of emphasis and one faded note (or signature?) across a bottom margin in old ink. Priced much, much less than a good, complete copy; and a relic with much more than its lowered price to recommend it.

        Castilla avrifera cvm vicinis provinciis.

      1611. Map. Copper-plate engraving. Image measures 9 x 11.5". Sheet measures 11.25 x 14.5". This rare map of Colombia shows the northern segment of the country, covering the coastline as it extends from the Caribbean Sea south the Andes Mountains. Panama, also included, runs into the title cartouche, which symbolically demarcates the depicted South American regions from unseen Central America. The map primarily renders forts as they have sprouted up along the main rivers. It is a later version of a map first published in Wytfliet's 1597 atlas, which contains some of the first printed maps of the New World as well as a history of the voyages of Columbus, Pizarro, Verrazano and other explorers. The map is in very good condition with wide margins. Some wormholes in margin not affecting the image. Cornelius Wytfliet (c. 1550--1597) was a Belgian cartographer who dedicated his work to Spain. He used the writings of both historians and contemporary geographers to render the geography natural history, and European discovery of the Americas. This map is a fine example of his work.

        Le Mystère d'iniquité, c'est à dire l'histoire de la papauté, par quels progrez elle est montée à ce comble, et quelles oppositions les gens de bien lui ont faict de temps en temps.

      Portau, Saumur 1611 - In-folio de (2)-13-(1)-607-(1) pp., vélin souple (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale très rare, illustrée de la planche double hors-texte : Tel se fait peindre Paul cinquiesme en la premiere page de plusieurs livres a lui dediez, imprimez à Rome & à Bouloigne. Le célèbre polémiste a dédié son livre au roi de France et une traduction latine à celui d'Angleterre. Il l'a composé pendant que les protestants étaient à Saumur, pour s'élever contre le pouvoir de l'Eglise et du pape Paul V comparé à la bête de l'Apocalypse. Ce « détestable livre » suivant le mot de Richelieu dans ses mémoires, fut condamné en Sorbonne le 22 août 1611 et provoqua une vive polémique. Le fonds de l'impression fut conservé au Château de Saumur dont Mornay était gouverneur, mais celui-ci fut démis en 1621 de sa charge, et les gens de la suite du roi, alors à Saumur brûlèrent peu après dans la cour du château, la plupart des exemplaires du Mystère d'iniquité. Vignette à la Tour de Babel sur le titre (18 x 17 cm) ; Portrait de l'auteur hors-texte gravé par L. Gaultier. De toute rareté complet de la planche dépliante.

Soon after this printing the Odyssey was reissued with books 13-24 printed by William Jaggard.

The engraved title by William Hole was first used in Homer Prince of Poets (ca. 1609) and is appears here with the title modified and mustaches removed from Apollo and Achilles Chapman (1560-1634) achieved more fame in his day as a dramatist than a translator, though it was for the later that he was immortalized by Keats in "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer." Chapman "personalized the epic, appropriating his source and making Homer a writer of the early modern moment" (ODNB). ESTC S119234; Pforzheimer 169

        Topographia variarum regionum [et] Topographia variarum regionum

      1611 - 2 volumes in-4 oblong de I. s.l, Hendrick Hondius, 1611 et 1614, , 2 volumes in-4 oblong de I. Titre et 19 planches (sur 24) ; et de II. Titre et 19 planches (sur 27), vélin souple de l'époque (corps d'ouvrage remonté au XXe siècle), Deux rares éditions originales de recueils de gravures de Simon Frisius d'après le peintre Mathias Bril, et imprimées par Hondius. Ces paysages variées sont dans la plus pure tradition de la peinture de l'école du Nord du dernier tiers du XVIe siècle : scène pittoresque, moulin, arbres solitaires, effets de mouvements rendus habilement grâce au mouvement du ciel et à la construction géométrique des tableaux, etc. D'après les récentes recherches de Nadine Orenstein (The New Hollstein [.] Simon Frisius I, 2008, p. 98-142), on ne compte que 9 exemplaires connus dans les fonds publics pour chacune de ces publications. 16 des planches présentent la très peu courante caractéristique d'avoir été rehaussées anciennement, voire à l'époque. Le mélange de la brillance du coloris ancien et des tons pastels a très bien été conservé. Une des planches de l'édition de 1614 ne correspond pas aux reproductions du New Hollstein, il s'agit donc d'un ajout annexe. En effet, cette planche n'est pas signée "Matias Bril inventor" mais "Jodocus van lier", c'est à dire Joos van Liere. La plus part des dessins de ce paysagiste et miniaturiste flamand mal-connu (né aux alentours de 1520 et mort en 1583) ne nous sont parvenus que d'après les gravures d'Hondius. La notre est la célèbre vue d'un village avec son reflet dans l'eau, superbement rehaussée. Bien qu'incomplet et que certaines de ces planches soient salies en bordure, très bel ensemble d'une absolue rareté du fait du coloris ancien et de la présence d’une gravure du méconnu Van Liere [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire Universelle des Indes occidentales et orientales, et de la conversion des Indiens. Divisiee en trois parties

      Douai: chez François Fabri, 1611. 3 parts in one volume, folio. (11 7/8 x 7 1/2 inches). 3 letterpress titles within engraved surrounds, woodcut printer's device on the final page of the first and third parts. 23 engraved maps on 20 sheets (19 double-page, 4 small maps printed on a single double-page sheet). (First two titles and some text leaves misbound). Early 18th-century calf, spine gilt in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat pattern in gilt (joints weak, corners bumped) Provenance: J. Besnier (or 'Benier', 'Huissier ord. du Cabinet du Roi', numerous inscriptions, many crossed through, some dated 1650); de La Porte (signatures, some with date 1654); Madame la Comtesse des Courtils (19th-century armorial bookplate) A fine copy of Wytfliet's description of the Americas (the third edition in French), here with the addition of Magini's valuable description of the West and East Indies and Japan. The first edition of Wyfliet's work is "the first atlas of America" (Burden), and was first published in Latin as Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum in 1597. As the title suggests, it was marketed as a supplement to Ptolemy's Geographia , with text based on the writings of Ramusio, Hakluyt, de Bry, Acosta and others. The work was evidently popular as two further Latin editions appeared in 1598 and 1603. The work was then translated into French and combined with the work of Magini and others and first published under the present title in 1605. Further editions of this compilation appeared in 1607 and 1611 (the present edition). The nineteen double-page engraved maps of the American continent appeared in all of the Latin and French editions (but with some changes of state). The first map (a double-hemisphere world map) is based on Mercator's influential map of 1587. There then follows ten maps of South America (the north coast of South America with the Caribbean islands, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica, Chile, Peru, two maps of Brazil, two maps of central America, Colombia, Venezuela, and Antarctica/Tierra del Fuego (notable as one of the earliest maps of Antarctica) and eight important maps of North America. In addition to the large double-page maps there are also four small maps on one double-page sheet in Magini's supplement showing the East Indies, Japan, China and the Philippines. Philip Burden gives full details of the American maps in his The Mapping of North America .. 1. Conibas Regio. Burden 100 ("the first printed map of present day central Canada"). 3rd state of 3, with Higuater reading. 2. Estotilandia et Laboratoris Terra. Burden 101, 1st and only state. 3. Nova Francia et Canada. Burden 102 (the first map "to use Canada in its title, and the first to concentrate on the river and Gulf of St. Lawrence"). 2nd state of 2, with date 1597 removed. 4. Norumbega et Virginia. Burden 103 ("only the second [map] to use Virginia in the title). 2nd state of 3, with date removed but latitude mark reading 30 instead of 39 at left side. 5. Florida et Apalche. Burden 104. 1st and only state. 6. Hispania Nova. Burden 105 ("takes in all of present day southern Texas"). 1st and only state. 7. Granata Nova et California. Burden 106 ("the first printed map devoted to California and the south-west of the present day United States"). 1st and only state. 8. Limes Occidentis Quiuira et Anian. Burden 107. 2nd state of 2, with date removed. The map titled Floride et Apalche is of particular note. Largely derived from a map by Ortelius, the source for both maps was the Spanish geographer Geronimo Chaves. "Privy to all of the official reports of the Spanish explorers, Chaves's map recorded the discoveries of Cabeza de Vaca, de Soto, and Moscoso ... The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations, and its reproduction in Wytfliet's popular work helped to correct the previous imaginary concepts of the area" (Martin & Martin).

        Camino del cielo en lengua mexicana, con todos los requisitos necessarios para conseguir este fin, co[n] todo lo que un Xp[r]iano deue creer, saber, y obrar, desde el punto que tiene uso de razon, hasta que muere.

      En Mexico: En la Emprenta de Diego Lopez Davalos Small 4to (18.5 cm; 7.25"). Fols. 10–11, 13–69, 69[!]–73, [nothing missing] 76, 75, 77–108, 110–23.. 1611 Sole colonial-era edition and one rare in commerce of Fr. Martín de León's famous work for priests ministering to Nahuatl-speaking Indians. Fray Martín is universally held to have been one of the great scholars of the language in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, admired for his fluency and ability to explain complex matters in elegant yet easy to understand expositions, as here in his confessionary, catechism, and calendar essay. Tragedy struck this copy, which lacks the title-leaf, licences, dedication, preliminaries concerning use of the word "Teotlacatl," prologue, the remarks on the Mexican language, the first nine leaves of the catechism in Nahuatl, and fols. 109 and 124–60. Surviving is most of the catechism, the section in Spanish on the syncretism of the Spanish and the Mexican religious calendars, and all but the last half page of the confessionary in Nahuatl, the missing paragraph supplied in early, neat manuscript — the book's sad owner redeeming its losses as best he could? Disbound but sewn; housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell case with marbled paper sides. Waterstaining throughout causing many pages to have an almost uniform tan appearance except in the foremargins; foremargins with shouldernotes shaved. Missing leaves as itemized above; fols. 30, 80–81, and 110–11 damaged with small loss, and repairs to some of these margins plus a few others; other usually minor scattered stains. The interesting woodcut on fol. 100 verso and text on recto, holed, still striking and readable respectively. Pencilled marks of emphasis and one faded note (or signature?) across a bottom margin in old ink. Priced much, much less than a good, complete copy; and a relic with much more than its lowered price to recommend it.

Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche, Freiburg i.Br., Herder, 1932 (2e durchgesehene und ergänzte Auflage), IV, p. 53 'Called in his own time 'the Portugese Aristotle', Pedro de Fonseca' was a sixteenth-century Jesuit philosopher and theologian. Schooled as a Thomist, Fonseca was a master of the Greek, Arabic and scholastic traditions, which enabled him to pursue his own independent line on various issues dealt with by Aquinas and Aristotle. (.) His chief accomplishments were in logic and metaphysics. He authored two very important and widely used works: a clear, comprehensive and systematic textbook in logic 'Institutionum dialecticarum libri octo' (Eight books of dialectical instructions) and an edition of Aristotle's Metaphysics with translation plus explanation and commentary. A third shorter work of introduction to logic (Isagoge philosophica) was also influential. The Institutionum dialecticarum was published at Lisbon in 1564 and re-edited fifty-two more times by 1625. It was adopted as a textbook, especially by the Jesuits, throughout Europe, America and the Far East. The second work was a much shorter Isagoge philosophica (Philosophical introduction), which was published initially in 1591 ad re-edited eighteen times up to 1623. More than a simple commentary on the Isagoge of Porphyry, Fonseca's book was a new introduction to the Organon of Aristotle'. compossivel wordpress. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Enfin il ne cesse pas quant à lui d'être animé d'un très fort sentiment national, qui est sa marque propre, encore qu'il partage ce sentiment avec son contemporain Pasquier » (Dictionnaire des Lettres Françaises). A la suite des Antiquitez gauloises, on trouve les deux autres remarquables traités du même auteur : Origines des Dignitez & Magistrats de France et Origine des chevaliers, Armoiries & Héraux, qui ont une page de titre spéciale. Rousseurs. Notes manuscrites marginales à l'encre du temps. Brunet II, 1192 ; Cioranescu, 9835.

        WELTKARTE: INSTRUMENTO DE GEOGRAPHIA Y COSMOGRAPHIA.

      - Jahr : Theatro del mundo y de el tiempo (Libro 1), Granada bei Sebastian Munoz, 2. Ausgabe (ab 1611) Das vorliegende Blatt mit einer wunderschönen, intakten Holzschnitt-Volvelle zur Ermittlung geographischer und kosmographischer Daten stammt aus der spanischen Übersetzung des Traktats Theatrum mundi et temporis des italienischen Astronomen Giovanni Paolo Gallucci (1538-1621). Die erste Ausgabe des Theatrum mundi erschien 1588 in Venedig in lateinischer Sprache und stellte eine Art astronomische Enzyklopädie dar. Die vorliegende Volvelle dient der Ermittlung kosmographisch-geographischer Daten zur Lokalisierung von Orten auf der Erde. Unter dem Messinstrument verweist der Psalm 134 die Erschaffung des Himmels und Erde durch Gott. Das Theatrum mundi von Gallcucci wurde erstmals 1606 von Miguel Perez ins Spanische übersetzt. Es erschien bei Sebastian Munoz in Granada unter dem Titel Theatro del mundo y de el tiempo. Von dieser spanischen Version folgten ab 1611 noch weitere Auflagen (2. Ausgabe 1611, nochmals gedruckt 1612, 1614 und 1616; 3. Ausgabe 1617). Das vorliegende Blatt stammt aus der 2. Ausgabe des Theatro mundi, da das abgebildete Instrumento de Geographia y Cosmographia gegenüber dem Instrument aus der Ausgabe von 1606 sowohl in der optischen, als auch mechanischen Machart stark variiert und wesentlich aufwendiger gestaltet ist. Gallucci widmete sich in seinen Traktaten vorrangig der Astronomie und der Beschreibung astronomischer Instrumente. Im Theatrum mundi beschreibt er die Bewegung der Gestirne nach Ptolemäus und die Sternbilder und ihre Positionen nach dem Katalog des Kopernikus. Weiterhin ist das Buch mit einer Vielzahl an erklärenden Illustrationen zu astronomischen Messinstrumenten versehen, darunter auch solche beweglichen Volvellen. Die Einzelteile dieser Volvellen befanden sich meist auf mehreren Seiten am Ende des Buches verteilt und mussten ausgeschnitten und zusammengesetzt werden. Das her vorliegende Instrumento de Geographia y Cosmographia aus fünf beweglichen, gegeneinander verschiebbaren Teilen ist vollkommen intakt und dient mit seinen kosmographisch-geographischen Bestandteilen der Lokalisierung von Orten auf der Erde. Zu beachten ist die Darstellung Amerikas auf der beweglichen Erdscheibe der Volvelle.
