      [Spain? 1611].. [12]pp. (leaves numbered 1-6). In Spanish. Folio. Dbd. Early folds, mild foxing. Very good. An early and evidently unrecorded 17th- century Spanish petition to the King on behalf of mendicant and monastic communities in the Spanish Americas. The authors argue that the churches attempting to tax their incomes and force them to pay tithes are hurting religious efforts in the Americas and infringing upon the historical independence of the religious orders from the churches. The document is signed in print by eleven monks, each representing a different order: the Benedictines, Hieronymites, Franciscans, Cistercians, Mercedarians, Dominicans, Augustinians, Trinitarians, Jesuits, Premonstratensians, and Carmelites. The Jesuit signer is Pedro de Caruajal, presumably Pedro de Carbajal, former magistrate and judge of the Vilcas Huamán province of Peru and author of DESCRIPCION FECHA DE LA PROVINCIA DE VILCAS GUAMAN...EN EL A?'O 1586.

Some browning, marginal worming in six leaves, else a fine, complete and unsophisticated copy of these rare works. Origins of Arabic Typography in Germany An outstanding Sammelband of works by pioneering Arabist and physician Peter Kirsten (1577-1640), who started a private press in Breslau (Wroclaw) in 1607. His Arabic type, which shows the influence of the Medicean types, was cut by Petrus von Seelau. He published the type specimen, Tria specimina characterum arabicorum, and then a three-part Arabic grammar. These are the first books printed in Germany from Arabic type. Roper notes that Kirsten ?'created a superior type-face, with some calligraphic qualities, which he not only used for his own letter specimens and Arabic grammar ... but later took to Sweden, where he inaugurated Arabic typography under royal patronage.?" Kirsten emphasized the usefulness of Arabic for the study of medicine, and prepared a bilingual text of Liber II of Avicenna; curiously, however, the balance of his work was on religious themes, and after 1611 he published nothing further. Individual titles by Kirsten are quite uncommon in institutional holdings and the few that have appeared at auction have often been rebound: a sound, contemporary copy of his major works such as this is a genuine rarity.

Thick duo decimo (4 3/4" x 3 1/2") bound in original vellum.Titus Flavius Josephus, born Joseph ben Matityahu was a first-century Romano-Jewish scholar, historian and hagiographer, who was born in Jerusalem?"then part of Roman Judea?"to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry. He initially fought against the Romans during the First Jewish?"Roman War as head of Jewish forces in Galilee, until surrendering in 67 to Roman forces led by Vespasian after the six-week siege of Jotapata. Josephus claimed the Jewish Messianic prophecies that initiated the First Roman-Jewish War made reference to Vespasian becoming Emperor of Rome. In response Vespasian decided to keep Josephus as a slave and interpreter. After Vespasian became Emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor's family name of Flavius. Flavius Josephus fully defected to the Roman side and was granted Roman citizenship. He became an adviser and friend of Vespasian's son Titus, serving as his translator when Titus led the Siege of Jerusalem, which resulted?"when the Jewish revolt did not surrender?"in the city's destruction and the looting and destruction of Herod's Temple (Second Temple). Josephus recorded Jewish history, with special emphasis on the first century AD and the First Jewish?"Roman War, including the Siege of Masada. His most important works were The Jewish War (c75) and Antiquities of the Jews (c94). The Jewish War recounts the Jewish revolt against Roman occupation (66?"70). Antiquities of the Jews recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective for an ostensibly Roman audience. These works provide valuable insight into first century Judaism and the background of Early Christianity. For many years, printed editions of the works of Josephus appeared only in an imperfect Latin translation from the original Greek. Only in 1544 did a version of the standard Greek text become available, edited by the Dutch humanist Arnoldus Arlenius. The first English translation, by Thomas Lodge, appeared in 1602, with subsequent editions appearing throughout the 17th century. The 1544 Greek edition formed the basis of the 1732 English translation by William Whiston, which achieved enormous popularity in the English-speaking world.Condition:Author and volume in neat ink to heal page ends, corners bumped, old institutional stamp to title verso, old ink date to title else a very good set of an early Latin edition.

Author Information: An Ancestor of the Duke of Wellington, Henry Fitzsimon was born in Swords, Co. Dublin in 1566. He was educated as a protestant in Manchester and at Christ Church College, Oxford where he graduated in Philosophy in 1587. He also studied at Pont à Mousson in Paris after which he travelled to Rome where he converted to Catholicism and was appointed Professor of Philosophy at Douay. Fitzsimon entered a Jesuit Seminary in 1593 at Louvain and returned to Dublin in 1596 as an ordained priest. In 1599 the Earl of Essex ordered the arrest of Fitzsimon in Cahir, Co. Tipperary. He evaded arrest but was eventually captured and imprisoned in Dublin Castle until 1604, five years after his imprisonment. When he was released he was banished from Ireland. He travelled to Spain, Then Luxembourg and Tournay where he became a military chaplain in the Austria and Bohemian Armies. Fitzsimon returned to Rome in 1608 where he wrote The Justification and Exposition of the Missioner Throughout Ireland? (1611) and a Catalogue of Irish Saints (1615). It is believed that he ministered to condemned criminals in Liege, Belgium in 1619 before he accompanied the army to Bohemia in 1620. His experiences there recounted in his History of the Bohemian Campaign (1620). In 1621 he published Buquoy Quadrimestre Iter, Progressuque quo, favente numine, ac auspice Ferdinando Il Rom. Imp.

      Geneva: Petrus de la Rouviere, 1611. n. Hardcover. 362 x 222 mm (14 1/4 x 8 3/4"). [4] pl., 1102 pp., [1] blank leaf, [13] leaves (index). SUMPTUOUS CONTEMPORARY HONEY BROWN MOROCCO, RICHLY GILT IN A MODIFIED FANFARE DESIGN, covers with outer frame of multiple plain and decorative rules and rolls, the frame surrounding a central panel formed by multiple plain rules and a filigree roll and featuring oblique fleurons pointing outward at corners, the panel with very densely gilt and elaborate cornerpieces and a large central lozenge incorporating olive branch garlands and rosettes, an oval at the center of the lozenge with the contemporary coat of arms of the abbot of Pontigny (see below), flat spine with a chain roll framing a single elongated panel tooled in a design similar to the covers, all edges gilt, holes for ties (perhaps with small, very expert repairs at spine bottom). Woodcut printer's device on title page, woodcut headpieces and decorative initials. Latin and Greek text printed in parallel columns. Front pastedown with partially effaced 17th century ownership inscription of "Henry [Becold?] / His Booke / E. Col. Pemb: [Pembroke College, Oxford] / Oxon / 1:16:8:" and of "[illegible] Crewkerne[?]" dated 1734, and with 19th century inscription of D. C. Lewis. Hoffman II, 444; Ebert 10898; Dibdin II, 130. For the binding: Hobson & Culot "Italian and French 16th Century Bookbindings" 73. Blank lower right corner of title page neatly replaced (in the 19th century?), small, pale dampstain in bottom margin of a few leaves, branching marginal wormholes in half a dozen quires (but these always extremely thin and never intruding on the text), minor soiling, browning, and foxing here and there, but still a very good copy internally, the leaves fresh, clean, and with good margins. A hint of wear to joints and extremities, the spine uniformly a little darkened (with the gilt just slightly less bright than on the boards), covers with trivial discoloration and abrasions, but THE IMPRESSIVE BINDING IN REMARKABLE CONDITION, entirely solid, with only minor signs of use, and with the once-dazzling gilt nearly as good as it was 400 years ago. This is an early 17th century Parisian binding with a secure connection to a Cistercian abbot and a likely connection with the binders to the French king. The tools used here match those employed on a binding of ca. 1600 from the Doheny collection (lot 1458, Christie's 17-18 October 1998), cited as item #73 in Hobson and Culot. The chain roll used on that volume is identical to the one we have, and the overall design of the central panel--employing the same olive branch and flower tools--is very similar. That binding later passed into the Wittock collection, and in the catalogue for his 7 October 2005 sale at Christie's Paris, it is described as coming from a bindery of some importance, perhaps that of Clovis Ève or one of his more adept imitators. Nicolas Ève (d. ca. 1582) was court binder and bookseller to the kings of France beginning in 1578; he was succeeded by his son Clovis, who continued in that capacity until 1634. The work of the Ève bindery was characterized by elaborate ornamentation made up of small hand tools that typically decorated the entire covers except at the center, where an oval was left blank, or sometimes emblazoned, as here, with a heraldic crest. According to Olivier-Hermal, the arms on our volume belong to one of two 17th century abbots of the Cistercian monastery at Pontigny, either Claude Boucherat or his first cousin Charles. Both men served as ecclesiastical members of the Council of State, and Charles also became Vicar General of the Cistercian order. Olivier-Hermal (XXII, 2233) lists three other volumes published between 1603 and 1630 that bear these arms. The text here is the earliest available edition in Greek and Latin of the works of the Jewish historian Josephus (ca. 37 - ca. 100). Dibdin records De la Rouviere's 1591 edition of the work, from which our 1611 edition was reprinted; however, no copies of the earlier edition can be located in OCLC, COPAC, or KVK, and none has appeared in auction records since at least 1975. Swept up in the Jewish rebellion begun in 66, Josephus was captured, but, when led before Vespasian, he was spared after telling his captor that he would become emperor. After the prophecy came true two years later, Josephus was freed, given the Vespasian family name of Flavius, and eventually pensioned on an estate, where he devoted the rest of his life to writing Jewish histories. Included in this corpus are his "Jewish Antiquities," "The Jewish War," an apologetic autobiography entitled "Against Apion" (an attempt to dispel misrepresentations of the Jews), and a book on the martyrdom of the Maccabees.

Lugd[uni] Batavor[um]: Ex officina Elzeviriorum, 1647. The book is definitely by Nathanael Duez who signs his name in the preface. 44pp. ITEM #2: The second book is also lacking title page. Half title is Dictionnaire Francois, Alleman & Latin. This matches a book found in WorldCat (OCLC: 42611968) also without a title page [Dictionnaire francois-alleman-latin]. This, according to that database, was issued in 1611 in Genevae "ex typographia Jacobi Stoer". 744pp. ITEM #3: The third book is titled" Dictionarium Germanico- Gallico- Latinum = Teutsch, Frantzosisch, und Lateinisch Dictionarium" by Nathanael Duez issed in In Genff [Geneva]: bey Iohan Ant. und Samuel De Tournes, 1671. 587pp. Book description: 18th century half brown morocco leather with grey-blue boards. Plain paper with black lettering on spine. Spine has five raised bands. The boards appear original and are heavily worn. The leather is moderately worn but still in good condition. All edges colored red. Signature on the front free endpage in ink which reads "Exlibris Josephi Thoma Faslino Jacerooti, 1782." The book appears to have been bound sometime in the late 18th century using the original boards with new (18th century) endsheets. The book has been trimmed when the three were bound together. There is no margin to the top of these books with a quarter inch margin elsewhere. The first and second books suffer clipping of the running title and the page numbers. Overall in GOOD condition. Nathanael Duez was French expatriat who spent most of his life working in Leiden as a teacher of French, Italian and German at the university. He was a prolific writer of linguistic books many of which are important for modern language teaching. Most his books went through several editions being corrected, enlarged or reduced by Duez himself. These were often reprinted, re-edited and pirated throughout Europe while he was alive and long after his death. Duez was the recognised expert in lexiconical & grammatical matters between 1639 and 1700 in French, German & Italian. Photos available upon request.

Le 'Calendarium Romanum vetus' possède une page de titre particulière, il est imprimé en rouge et noir. 'Tabularum emptori' (p. 8) a été signé manuscritement par l'auteur. Pleine Basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête arrachée, coiffe de queue arasée. Deux trous au troisième caisson. Cet important ouvrage astronomique contient les tables solaires et lunaires complètes de Ptolémée, Copernic, Tycho Brahe et Alfonsus. Les commentaires sont de Nicolas des Mulier(s) (1564-1630) de Bruges, qui fut professeur de mathématique et de médecine à l'université de Groningen, puis son bibliothécaire. Il a écrit et publié plusieurs ouvrages astronomiques : Institutionum astronomicarum libri duo, 1616, Iudæorum annus lunæ-solaris: et Turc-Arabum annus merê lunaris. Des Muliers s'intéressa particulièrement dans ses études à la chronologie, mais il fit également de nombreuses observations astronomiques au moyen d'un télescope personnel. L'ouvrage est loin d'être seulement une compilation, il s'agit d'un relecture et toutes les dates furent recalculées, et Muliers s'intéresse aux éclipses mais également aux méthodes de calcul des différents astronomes. Muliers comprit surtout que l'astronomie n'était pas que des théories basées sur de savants calculs, mais que les calculs astronomiques révélaient la réalité de corps astronomiques, et qu'elle n'était pas non plus ce qu'enregistrait notre perception. 464pp. (28) 77pp. (2) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Specimen Historiae Plantarum. Plantae typis aeneis expressae

      Paris: Hadrian Beys, 1611., 1611. small 4to. pp. 4 p.l. (the last blank), 152, [2], [1 leaf]blank. 24 full-page etchings of flowers (the etching on p. 96 is a paste-over cancel). woodcut printer's device on title. 2 woodcut headpieces & 2 woodcut initials. some text in Greek. contemporary limp vellum (covers spotted, lower front cover chipped, paper lightly embrowned, occasional stains & some marginal foxing). fine woodcut bookplate of André Alexandre Normandeau, Vicomte. First Edition. This work has been especially highly praised for the quality of its etchings, which Reneaulme executed after his own drawings. "The illustrations are extraordinary for the date: finely detailed naturalistic studies that recall Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues. Each plate shows the whole plant but with additional studies of variant forms. The book is an excellent demonstration of how apt etching, with its fine sensitive line, is to the demands of botanical illustration." (Gill Saunders, Picturing Plants An Analytical History Of Botanical Illustration, p. 13) "[Reneaulme's] etchings are of the highest quality - exquisitely sensitive and extremely personal in treatment. They are assuredly the work, not only of a great lover of nature, but of a great master of the etcher's craft." (Blunt) Saunders also notes that the book, although modest in scope, "was of sufficient botanical significance to be later cited by Linnaeus." Reneaulme, who was a physician as well as a botanist, discusses the medicinal uses of various plants and he also describes some plants which are indigenous to America. Of particular interest is the section on the tobacco plant, which is illustrated on p. 37. [BOUND WITH, as issued]: [THOU, Jacques Auguste De] [1553-1617]. Crambe. Viola. Lilium. Phlogis.

I "Cinque Canti" aggiunti sono di Camillo Camilli (Monte San Savino, data ignota del XVI secolo-Ragusa, 1615), "erudito vanittoso e senza scrupoli, la cui opera si colloca fra quelle degli epigoni di Torquato Tasso. Con i suoi "Cinque canti", composti durante la segregazione del grande poeta e pubblicati a insaputa di lui in appendice alla "Gerusalemme liberata" (intitolandola "Goffredo"), intese portare a compimento le vicende di Armida-Rinaldo e di Erminia-Tancredi, concludendole con il suicidio di Armida e la conversione di Erminia, peraltro prevista dal Tasso stesso."

        Cardigan Shyre

      London 1611 - 16 5/8" x 21 1/2" Speed, John. "Cardigan Shyre Described with the due forme of the Shiretown as it was surveyed by I.S. Anno 1610." Copperplate engraving (black and white; no color). London, 1611. From the atlas "Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine." First edition with fine dark impressions and English text on the back. Published by John Sudbury and George Humble. Approximate size is 16 5/8 x 21 1/2 inches. An early map of this Welsh coastal county. Cardiganshire was created in 1282. In 1282 Edward I of England conquered the principality of Wales and divided the area into counties. The name Cardigan was an Anglicization of the name for the historic kingdom of Ceredigion. To all those interested in cartography, the name of John Speed is synonymous with early county maps of Great Britain. His predecessors, Saxton, Norden, and one or two lesser figures had laid the groundwork for the first mapping of Britain in the days of Queen Elizabeth. By the end of the 16th century, however, the increase in travel and commerce had created a need for better maps, and Speed's quickly replaced those of his predecessors. Not only were they more accurate, but undoubtedly the beauty of the engraving, the fine lettering and elaborate ornamentation appealed to the original buyers as much as they do to us today. Speed's atlas was so ambitious and of such high artistic and intellectual merit that it remained the standard reference for Great Britain until the beginning of the eighteenth century. The atlas was so highly acclaimed that editions continued to appear until the 1770's. Speed was one of the earliest English antiquarians, and his interest in history led him to add vignettes to his maps of great past events, together with town and architectural plans. Most maps, for example, contain representations of battles that occurred in the given county, of ancient artifacts and monuments, such as Stonehenge, and of the great cathedrals and palaces of medieval and Tudor England. The plates were engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius and exhibit the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment, reflecting the pervasive and appealing Mannerist style of the period, with strapwork and fretwork cartouches, heraldic crests, and costumed figures. The decoration and accuracy of Speed's maps, particularly with regard to the lavish use on each map of the coats-of-arms of that country's early leading nobles, inspired the later British county maps of Blaeu and Jansson.

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

      chez François Fabri, Douai 1611 - 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).

Plan of ancient Jerusalem and surrounding country as far as Bethany, as drawn by Pietro Vesconte (fl. 1310-30) for Marino Sanudo's 'Liber Secretorum Fidelibus de Crucis' c.1320. This manuscript work was presented to Pope Clement V to encourage a new crusade. This engraving was the first time that the original map was published, retaining the original's lack of a conventional single reading view.

Considered within the complicated publication history of the first collected edition of Spenser's works, this selection from the first folio edition represents the earliest folio editions of Dapnhaida and Complaints, first published as quartos in 1591. Books I-III of The Faerie Queene were first published in 1590 by William Posonby, who also published Books IV-VI in 1596. When he died in 1599, Spenser left the poem unfinished with only a fraction of Book VII completed. A decade later in 1609, Matthew Lownes published the first folio edition of Books I-VI of The Fearie Queen along with the unfinished Book VII, now known as the Cantos of Mutabilitie. In 1611, Lownes issued the first collected edition of Spenser's works in a folio format, including The Faerie Queene, The Shepheards Calendar, and Spenser's smaller texts. For the first folio edition, Lownes used his leftover sheets from the 1609 Faerie Queen and printed the additional sections separately, and reprinted each on an as needed basis. Accordingly, nearly all copies of the 1611 collected works are mixed-issue, with different sections printed at different times, as evidenced by F.R. Johnson's 1933 Critical Bibliography of the Works of Edmund Spenser. Additionally, many of the sections have their own title pages, so many copies often have conflicting publication dates throughout, and complicating issue points for different editions. The Faerie Queene is an incomplete epic allegorical poem written in honor of Queen Elizabeth I, who is symbolically represented as the title character. Spenser envisioned the work completed in twelve parts, with each section describing a different member of the Faerie Queens' court, each of whom referred to an actual member of Queen Elizabeth's court. Just as Virgil created a history for Rome by connecting it to Ancient Greece in the Aeneid, Spenser lauded the reign of the Tudor Family by linking their ancestry to King Arthur. Daphnaida and Complaints are among Spenser's shorter poems and laden with themes of mourning and lamentation. Specifically, Daphnaida is a narrative elegy for Douglas Howard, the late first wife of poet Sir Arthur Gorges, and Complaints is. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        An Epistle to the Right Honourable Richard Lord Visc. Cobham

      Printed for Lawton Gilliver. First edition.. Some slight scuffing to the binding; a handsome copy.. Griffith 329; Rothschild 1611; NCBEL II, 507. Folio, 20th century red half straight-grained morocco, red cloth sides, gilt rules and lettering. Half-title and leaf of ads present. An epistle dedicated to Sir Richard Temple, Lord Cobham (1675-1749), a friend of Pope who had been disgraced by Walpole.

        The Faerie Queen: The Shepheards Calendar: Together with the Other Works of England's Arch-Po‘t, 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 SpenserÕs 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 Ã’16012Ó [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 waŒs 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."

        The Holy Bible, Conteyning the Old Testament, and the New:

      London: Robert Barker,, 1611?"13. Newly translated out of the Originall Tongues: and with the former Translations diligently compared and revised ... by his Maiesties speciall Commandement. Appointed to be read in Churches. Folio (410 × 260 mm), 752 leaves, complete. Recased in contemporary dark calf, spine gilt in compartments, later red morocco label to style. Text in double columns, black letter, letterpress divisional title within elaborate woodcut borders, woodcut initial capitals, vignettes, folding map. General title inlaid, (genealogies) A2, (NT) S1, S6, U3-4, Z1-2, Aa1-3 and Aa5-6 remargined, repairs to (prelims) A2-3, (OT) B6, Pp4-5, Eee4, Ggg2, Iii6, Zzzz5, (NT) T1, loss to map at right margin. Several leaves evidently supplied from other copies including (genealogies) A4-B2, B5-C6, map, (NT) S1-6, T2, and Z1-Aa6. Contemporary manuscript notes and pen trials, including the name William Toutt in a Jacobean court hand and "Ashchurche Booke" on A3r. Some small holes, tears, and abrasions, spotting and browning, nevertheless a good copy, with generous margins. Second folio edition of the King James Bible, with the reading "...and she went into the citie" at Ruth 3:15 ?" hence the "She" Bible. This edition has the error of "Judas" for "Jesus" at Matthew 26:36, which is here corrected by a pasted slip. It is believed that most of this edition was printed in 1611, but publication was delayed until 1613 (the latter date being most commonly found on the title page). About one third of the sheets exist in two different states, suggesting that Barker engaged in a significant amount of reprinting between 1611 and final publication. The reason for this has not been established. The King James Bible is often described as the greatest literary work created by a committee. The work was divided between 50 or so scholars divided into six groups, two each at Westminster, Cambridge, and Oxford respectively. The companies seem to have been intentionally composed of men not only with diverse qualifications but also of varying religious convictions. To help with the work of revision, 40 unbound copies of the Bishops' Bible, which was used as the foundation text, were supplied to the group, at a cost of £1 16s. 8d. each. The stately rhythms and simple but elevated prose style of this translation, somewhat archaic from the outset, have permanently imbued the English language with gravitas and a rich stock of universally recognisable phrases. Thomas Babington Macaulay in 1828 called it "a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power" (McGrath, 301).

Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche, Freiburg i.Br., Herder, 1932 (2e herz.), 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'.

The first edition, based on a now lost manuscript, was printed in 1557. The third work is a rare anti-Venetian pamphlet in Italian written on the occasion of the Uskok War (1615-1618). This war was waged by Venice against a group of Balkan pirates (Uskoks or Croatian-Habsburg soldiers), which was stationed by the Habsburg ruler Archduke Ferdinand of Styria (1578-1637) (later Ferdinand II) along its frontiers as part of its military borders. The Venetian- Habsburg conflict eventually involved troops from all-over Europe, with on the one hand Venice and the United Provinces, and Habsburg and Spain on the other. The pamphlet includes an anti-Venetian Latin oration given in Rome by the French diplomat Louis Hélian in 1510. With library label pasted on verso front cover, library labels pasted on spine.

        Der Statt Franckfurt am Mayn erneuerte Reformation Wie die in Anno 1578 außgangen und publicirt/ Jetzt abermals von newen ersehen/ an vielen underschiedtlichen Orten gegendert/ verbessert und vermehrt.

      Franckfurt am Mayn, Gedruckt durch Johann Bringern, In Verlegung Jonas Rosen, 1611.. Folio. Schöner ganzseitiger Titelkupfer in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, (18), 291 gezählte Blätter, mit einem ganzseitigen Holzschnitt, darstellend eine Allegorie der Iustitia im Hintergrund Ansicht der Stadt Frankfurt am Main. Zeitgenössischer Lederband mit Rückenvergoldung auf sechs Bünden geheftet am Rücken etwas eingerissen.. Erste umfassende deutsche Stadtrechtsreformation im Geist des Jus Romanum! Die bedeutendste legislatorische Arbeit des 16. Jahrhunderts ist die Frankfurter Stadtrechstreformation von 1578. Verfasser ist der berühmte Frankfurter Jurist Johannes FICHARD (1512 - 1581). Fichard, ein Schüler von Ulrich Zasius und Bonifacius Amerbach, war nach vollendetem Studium zunächst Advokat am Reichskammergericht, später Stadtadvokat und Syndicus der Stadt Frankfurt am Main. Die Reformation des Frankfurter Stadtrechts ist eine originäre gesetzgeberi- sche Leistung von Fichard, keine Kompilation aus anderen gesetzeswerken, sondern ein Versuch einer Kodifikation aus einem Guße. Im Auftrag der Stadt Frankfurt am Main errstellt, sucht die Reformation in seinen Grundlagen das römische Recht umzusetze, zieht einheimische Quellen nur noch gelegentlich heran. Mit dieser Reformation ist dem römischen Recht der große Durchbruch auf gesetzgeberischer Ebene in Deutschland gelungen. Der ganze süddeutsche Raum konnte sich dem Einfluß dieser Reformation nicht mehr entziehen. Das Gesetzbuch zählt bis zum Auftreten des Naturrechts und den großen Vernunft- rechtskodifikationen im 18. Jahrhundert zu den bedeutendsten in Deutschland. Grundlegend für die Erfoschung dieses Gesetzeswerkes war Helmut Coing.
