Bella e monumentale legatura coeva in piena pelle di scrofa su assi di legno con dorso a sei nervi e incisioni a secco ai piatti. Timbretto di biblioteca privata al frontespizio: Miklos Kubinkyi (1840-1937), storico e giurista ungherese. Macchie alla legatura, sguardie rifatte, strappetto senza mancanze al frontespizio, antichi restauri all"angolo bianco di alcune carte (più evidenti all"ultima carta), lievi e sporadiche bruniture, peraltro esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Guillaume Durand (1237-1297?), post-accursiano civilista d'origine provenzale, visse ed insegnò prevalentemente in Italia.

      - Contemporary parchment binding. Title shield on spine is partly missing. 115 x 65 mm, 12º: A-X#8, 335 [1] pp.; 2A-2S#8, 286 [2] pp.; 2A-2F#8, 2P#8 (-2P1,2,3) 2Q#8, pp. 1-96 and 231-256. Three title pages with printer’s mark of Plantijn. In the third part, the pages 97 to 230 are missing. Collected works of Publius Ovidius Naso (43 BC – 17 AC), one of the best Latin poets from the Golden Age of August. The binder has left out the quires 2G to 2O from the third part – no doubt on instructions of the owner of the book – and thus has left out all erotic poetry that Ovid wrote: 'Amores,’ Ars amatoria’ and ‘Remedia amoris.’ This last poem has maintained its last page in this edition, because on the reverse side of this poem begins the poem ‘Medicamina faciei femineae.’ However, the text of ‘Remedia amores’ that has been printed, is carefully made unreadable with pen.

Diego Ufano was associated with the Spanish armies in the Netherlands. His book on artillerie first appeared in 1612. The first edition of the French translation was published in Zutphen in 1621.

Rare édition originale in-4° imprimée à Paris, de cette pièce historique dans l'histoire tourmentée des relations entre la compagnie de Jésus et l'université de Paris. Par lettres patentes du 12 octobre 1609, Henri IV avait accordé aux jésuites le droit d’enseigner dans leur collège parisien, provoquant la réaction immédiate de la Sorbonne. Dans les suites de l’assassinat roi et des accusations contre la Compagnie d’avoir fomenté le régicide, la Faculté prenait la décision de s’opposer à leur arrivée et déposait un recours devant le Parlement de Paris. Le 15 décembre 1611 fut notifiée aux Jésuites une citation à comparaître. Pierre de La Martelière plaida pour l'Université, Montholon pour les jésuites. A l’issu des audiences, l'avocat général Servin somma les Jésuites de se soumettre aux doctrines de la Sorbonne concernant les libertés de l'Église gallicane. Le Parlement adopta les conclusions de Servin et leur interdit de s'interposer dans l'instruction de la jeunesse. L'arrêt figure en fin de ce document ainsi que la permission d'imprimer datée du 18 janvier 1612. Les hostilités entre l’Université de Paris et les jésuites ne prirent vraiment fin qu’à la suppression de la Compagnie en 1762. (‘Bibliothèque historique de la France’, 44650). Quelques rousseurs.

      Paris, Nicolas Buon, 1612; in-4; [18] leafs, 571 [+1] pages, [12] leafs, bound in speckled begining C 19th calf, boards tooled with gilt floral border, spine with five raise bands, stampled in gilt in compartments, gilt morocco lettering label, edges speckled red, marbled endpapers. One of the first two original editions published in 1612, the other was released by "Jean Berjon". Our copy contains, facing the title page, a folding engraving: "Description de l'assemblée des sorciers qu'on appelle Sabbat" signed by Crespin. According to Grillot de Givry, the original of this representation was a lost painting by Bartholomaeus Spranger. De Lancre's work is a core text of the french witchcraft. Not only that it contains one of the most detailed accounts of the witches' Sabbath that survives (almost one third of the work describes the Sabbath in elaborated detail), but it is also crucial to understanding the historical context of the great witchcraft persecutions of the 16th and 17th centuries. The text is the more important considering that the original trial records on which it is based were destroyed in the 18th century, so that it remains as a singular witness to the prosecution. Magistrate of the Bordeaux Parlement, Pierre de Lancre (1553-1631) was charged by Henri IV with conducting a famous witch hunt in 1609 in Labourd, in the Basque region of France situated in the extreme southwest bordering Spain and Navarre. Here, over four months he sentences to death several dozen persons. The account of his criminal investigation laid the foundations for the anthropology of the Basque Country for three centuries. The book contains also a precise account of a giant celebration of punishment and forgiveness for sins of witchcraft hold by the Spanish Inquisition in the city of Logrono on 7 and 8 november 1610. A lot of other topics are also covered, such as witches transformation, the Sabbath feast, Satan's coupling with witches, lycanthropy, the witches' mark, healing through illicit means or the pact with the devil. Modern research has established that De Lancre's standpoint is not so much that of a witchcraft theorist (as in the case of his contemporaries Bodin or Del Rio) but rather that of the ethnographer. He was married to the grand-niece of Montaigne.A remarkable well preserved copy of this extremley rare and weird work, very clean inside in a magnificent binding (minor restoration expertly done at spine).

Selon Pierre Larousse, "il fit infliger des tortures atroces à tous ces malheureux et en fit brûler vifs plus de cinq cents qui, à la suite des tortures, s"étaient reconnus coupables de magie et de sorcellerie".

         Historia Septem Infantivm de Lara. Historia de los Siete Infantes de Lara

      First edition. A remarkable suite of 40 etchings depicting the Spanish romancero of the Seven Infants of Lara, illustrated by Vaenius (1556 - 1629) with the engravings of the Italian Tempesta (1555 - 1630). The work represents one of the most significant Spanish medieval legends, a chivalry chronic traditionally attributed to Fernan Gonzalez, which deals with the murder of 7 brothers by the hands of the Moors in the 11th century after the betrayal of their uncle Rodrigo, and were later avenged by their half brother Mudarra, son of the Lord of Lara and a Moorish Lady; "one of the most romantic (stories) in Spanish history" (Ticknor). Each etching contains below a parallel Spanish and Latin explanatory text. Tempesta was an Italian artist and engraver active the later part of the 16th century and first quarter of the 17th; his style is strongly marked by the Mannerism and later the Baroque, he worked under Vasari in the decoration of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.

         Comentarios de las cosas en los Paises Baxos de Flandes, desde el ano de mil y quinientos y noventa y quatro, hasta el de mil y quinientos y nouenta y ocho

      First edition. A contemporary war chronicle, and a relevant source for the history of the Low Countries and the war with Spain, written in the form of an autobiographical account, thus not engaging in historic remarks, but based in the experiences of the author, a soldier in the war, although a brief historic overview of the events leading to the war is given. The illustration comprises a full page portrait of the author standing in armor, with his shield against a tree, signed by the cipher FND(?), and woodcut arms on title page. His personal approach to the work is outlined in the last chapter "Y porque estos misescritos, o comentarios, no son mas que unas breves memorias de lo que vi y alcance a saber del tiempo en que milite en la guerra de Flandes, y va escrito mas como soldado que como historiador" (CLVII pp. v158-159). Cabrera de Cordoba would later use this book for the confection of his chronicle (1619), relying considerably on the un-biasness of a soldier who only wrote on his own experience, rather than with ideological positions taken, as earlier chroniclers such as Ulloa and Cornejo.

With a title-page that looks more like a half-title and gives the impression that the book is a collection of sermons by Meursius, and a part-title for part 2 that gives the author's female pseudonym and the true title. Boards (ca. 1900), covered with paste-paper. Untrimmed.

      KVK & WorldCat (3 copies?); cf. Gay-Lemonnyer III, 218-19 (other eds.); Kearney, The private case 363-408 (idem); Rose, Register of erotic books 4240-80 (idem). Rare edition, in the original Latin, of a famous erotic prose dialogue by Nicolas Chorier (1612-1692), recounting the sexual initiation of Ottavia, an innocent but intensely motivated young girl. Chorier first published it in Latin in the 1660s under the pseudonym "Aloisia Sigea" and claimed it was translated by Johannes Meursius from a Spanish manuscript. It went through numerous editions and was translated into several European languages, including Dutch, English, French and German. This "vastly dilated and wholly libidinous parody of women's educational aspirations" (Turner) had a profound influence on European erotic literature. The title-page, which looks more like a half-title, was probably intended to hide the true nature of the book, making it appear to be a collection of sermons by Meursius. This title is found already on editions thought to date from ca. 1680. The part-title for the second part gives the pseudonym and title used for the earliest and many later editions.With library stamp, flyleaf with manuscript note in German on Chorier, some soiling. Overall in good condition.

         RACCOLTA D'ALCUNE RIME di scrittori mantovani fatta per Eugenio Cagnani. Con una lettera cronologica et altre prose, et rime dello stesso...

      Osanna, 1612. in-4, pp. 214, (2), leg. p. pergamena rigida del XVIII secolo, dorso a nervetti con tassello e titolo in oro, tagli spruzzati. L'opera è divisa in cinque parti, ciascuna con fontespizio proprio. Sui titoli stemma di Francesco Gonzaga, duca di Mantova e dedicatario dell'opera. Numerosi capilettera, testatine e finalini in legno. Rara edizione originale. La raccolta si apre con una interessantissima Lettera cronologica, dedicata a Francesco Gonzaga, in cui l'autore rivive tutta la cultura rinascimentale mantovana favorita dal meceneatismo dei Gonzaga. Vi si fanno le lodi del Folengo, del Castiglione, del Tasso, dei Capilupi, ma vi sono anche menzionati giuristi, retori e storici. Viene inoltre ricordato l'insegnamento del Pomponazzi e la rappresentazione dell'Orfeo di Monteverdi. Il volume comprende poi due trattatelli in prosa (Dell'amicizia e Contro il vizio dell'ingratitudine), le Rime dell'autore e, infine, quelle dei poeti-artigiani (calzolaio, libraio, venditore di cipolle, venditore di ferrarezza ed altri non specificati). Queste ultime si è creduto a lungo scritte dal Cagnani stesso, ma "Carlo D'Arco dimostrò in seguito l'esistenza di ciascuno degli artigiani compresi nella raccolta, e si preferisce tuttora credere che l'attribuzione dei testi agli occasionali poeti menzionati dal Cagnani possa avere qualche probabilità, anche se le poesie degli artigiani non si discostano in nulla, per stile e riferimenti culturali, da quelle del raccoglitore" (D.B.I., XVI, p. 301, a cura di C. Mutini). "Il Cagnani fu poeta elevato, rimatore prezioso e sicuro, versificatore assai piacevole, tanto che i suoi versi possono interessare ed essere ammirati anche oggi, per una loro finezza di espressione ed anche per una non caduca preziosità di ispirazione. Ma Cagnani va più in là: egli non scrive versi fine a sé stessi, ma tenta -pur in un ambito ristretto- una innovazione di forme che si riallaccia a tutta una tradizione culturale, non certo di poco conto. Il suo nome rimane a giusto titolo, e ben degnamente, nella storia della letteratura mantovana del Cinquecento" (L. Corveja, Un delicatissimo poeta cinquecentesco: Eugenio Cagnani. Quando anche i Ministri delle Finanze componevano, in: "La reggia", a. VIII, n. 2, Mantova, maggio 2000, pp. 9-11). E. Cagnani (1577-1614), poeta ed erudito mantovano, ricoprì diversi importanti incarichi presso la corte della sua città natale. Tesoriere generale e segretario, fu spesso inviato in missioni diplomatiche e politiche. "Nel suo complesso, quindi, si può ben dire come Eugenio Cagnani sia stato certamente una delle figure più interessanti e di maggiore spicco della corte gonzaghesca ai tempi di Vincenzo Gonzaga" (L. Corveja, op. cit.). ICCU, IT\ICCU\MODE\020407. BL 17th Century Italian Books, 167. Libreria Vinciana, 2356 ("Opera ignota alle maggiori bibliografie"). S.P.

Avec un discours contenant la procedure faite par les Inquisiteurs d’Espagne & de Navarre, à 53 magiciens, apostats, ju

      Paris, Nicolas Buon, 1612; in-4; [18] leafs, 571 [+1] pages, [12] leafs, bound in speckled begining C 19th calf, boards tooled with gilt floral border, spine with five raise bands, stampled in gilt in compartments, gilt morocco lettering label, edges speckled red, marbled endpapers. One of the first two original editions published in 1612, the other was released by "Jean Berjon". Our copy contains, facing the title page, a folding engraving: "Description de l'assemblée des sorciers qu'on appelle Sabbat" signed by Crespin. According to Grillot de Givry, the original of this representation was a lost painting by Bartholomaeus Spranger. De Lancre's work is a core text of the french witchcraft. Not only that it contains one of the most detailed accounts of the witches' Sabbath that survives (almost one third of the work describes the Sabbath in elaborated detail), but it is also crucial to understanding the historical context of the great witchcraft persecutions of the 16th and 17th centuries. The text is the more important considering that the original trial records on which it is based were destroyed in the 18th century, so that it remains as a singular witness to the prosecution. Magistrate of the Bordeaux Parlement, Pierre de Lancre (1553-1631) was charged by Henri IV with conducting a famous witch hunt in 1609 in Labourd, in the Basque region of France situated in the extreme southwest bordering Spain and Navarre. Here, over four months he sentences to death several dozen persons. The account of his criminal investigation laid the foundations for the anthropology of the Basque Country for three centuries. The book contains also a precise account of a giant celebration of punishment and forgiveness for sins of witchcraft hold by the Spanish Inquisition in the city of Logrono on 7 and 8 november 1610. A lot of other topics are also covered, such as witches transformation, the Sabbath feast, Satan's coupling with witches, lycanthropy, the witches' mark, healing through illicit means or the pact with the devil. Modern research has established that De Lancre's standpoint is not so much that of a witchcraft theorist (as in the case of his contemporaries Bodin or Del Rio) but rather that of the ethnographer. He was married to the grand-niece of Montaigne.A remarkable well preserved copy of this extremley rare and weird work, very clean inside in a magnificent binding (minor restoration expertly done at spine). Photos available on request.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Paris, Nicolas Buon, 1612; in-4 de [18] feuillets, 571 [+1] pages, [12] feuillets, reliure du début du XIXe siècle veau porphyre, petite dentelle, dos à nerfs orné de motifs dorés, pièce du titre rouge, tranches rouges. Notre exemplaire contient en tête une grande gravure en tailledouce signée de Crespin et repliée: "Description de l'assemblée des sorciers qu'on appelle Sabbat".Pierre de Lancre, érudit et homme de cour, était conseiller au parlement de Bordeaux, quand il fut envoyé par Henri IV dans le pays de Labourd, province du Pays basque français, pour y instruire plusieurs procès en sorcellerie. Selon Pierre Larousse, "il fit infliger des tortures atroces à tous ces malheureux et en fit brûler vifs plus de cinq cents qui, à la suite des tortures, s"étaient reconnus coupables de magie et de sorcellerie". Le ''Tableau de l'inconstance des mauvais anges'' qu'il publia in 1612 lui valut d'être nommé conseiller d'état."Volume assez recherché et peu commun."

         Discorso al Serenissimo Don Cosimo II.Intorno alle cose, che Stanno in su l'acqua, o che in quella si muovono

      Florence: Cosimo Giunti, 1612. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (2) ff, 77 pp, (1), (1) f with printer's emblem. Bound with: [GALILEI, Galileo & CASTELLI, Benedetto]. Risposta alle Opposizioni del S. Lodovico delle Colombe, e del S. Vincenzo di Grazia... Florence, Cosimo Giunti, 1615. (1) ff, (2), 319 [ie 335] pp with numerous mispaginations, (5) including printer's emblem. Bound in contemporary limp vellum with MS title on spine, "Galileo Galilei Opera', internally very fresh, an excellent copy in all respects. A remarkable pairing of two Galileana bound together by a contemporary follower of the power struggle between Galileo and the Aristotelians. The second augmented edition of Galileo's classic on hydrostatics, published the same year within months of the first edition, represents his first published work in physics (Drake, p. 179). The Discorso is hailed by historians of science as having united for the first time two previously separate disciplines: statics and dynamics, resulting in a new science of mechanics, containing his first published statements on the concept of moment, an abstract concept of physical force which has been shown to have dominated his early physical thinking, and contains several first announcements concerning some of his great astronomical discoveries relating to sunspots, the triple form of Saturn, and the phases of Venus. The present 2nd edition contains significant additional text concerning this important concept. The Risposta, one of the scarcest of Galileo's works on the market, contains his lengthy and scathing replies to his critics only a year before his official castigation by the Catholic Church. Two years after the publication of the Sidereus Nuncius which assured his place in the history of science, and after displaying his telescopic discoveries in Rome, Galileo returned to Florence and devoted himself to the study of floating bodies, "the real, intrinsic and total cause why some bodies float and others sink." In the Discorso, Galileo supports Archimedes and opposes Aristotle on the behavior of bodies in water, arguing that the reason some solids sink is the excess of their weight over the weight of water. Employing the concept of moment- "the force with which the mover moves and the floating body resists" -and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo far surpasses the hydrostatic considerations of Archimedes: "The new method enables Galileo to unify statics and dynamics into a new science of mechanics which became the foundation of modern physics" (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 287). As noted above, the second edition may be distinguished from the first by the additional material contained therein; notably, Galileo drew attention to these additions by printing them in Roman type rather than Italic. Among these additions are Galileo's first announcements of the Sun's rotation period, his announcements of sunspots, and his discovery of the "horns" of Saturn.

First bilingual (Italian and Dutch) edition of a sentence pronounced by the government of the Venetian Republic (the Consiglio dei Dieci or Council of Ten) on 21 April 1612, declaring Anzolo Badoer (in absentia) a traitor, stripping him of his knighthood, confiscating his property, banishing him from the city and the Republic's territories and sentencing him to be hanged, in the original Italian with a parallel Dutch translation.

         [Letter to M[adam]e la Duchelle d'Avegry[?]]. [Paris, December? 1703]. Small 4to (19 x 14 cm). Autograph letter in French, signed, written in dark brown ink in a Latin hand on paper.

      For Verjus and his role in the missions of the Far East, see: Frederik Vermote, The role of urban real estate in Jesuit finances and networks between Europe and China, 1612-1778, doctoral thesis, University of British Columbia (Vancouver 2013). Signed autograph letter written by Antoine Verjus (1632-1706), Parisian Jesuit procurator for the Indian and Chinese missions from 1678 to 1702 and, on the evidence of the present letter still in 1703. He reports on various Jesuits who have left for China, notes the importance of the work and the honour it has brought to others (explicitly noting the Duchess of Alba), and appears to be seeking patronage. In the 1690s Verjus had corresponded with Leibniz and helped him establish contacts in China. He spent much of his career attempting to establish a safer and more reliable connection between Europe and China. He distrusted the motives of his colleagues in other European countries, even fellow Jesuits, and succeeded in diverting funding for missions from Lisbon to Paris. He found much support in Germany, however, especially the Prince-Bishop of Münster, Ferdinand von Fürstenberg. "Verjus' correspondence ... illustrates his pivotal role in reshaping Jesuit transport and communication networks." (Vermote p. 32). The letter was formerly folded horizontally and vertically, probably for sending, and one corner is slightly damaged with no loss of text. In very good condition. An important primary source on French Jesuit missionary work in China and it financing.

         Animalium quadrupedum omnis generis verae et artificiosissimae delineationes in aes incisae et edita ab Adriano Collardo.

      - Antwerpen, [ca. 1612]. Oblong 8vo (18.8 x 12.4 cm). 19 beautiful contemporarily hand-coloured engravings including the engraved title page depicting Orpheus charming and taming the birds and beasts of the forest. All are mounted on contemporary paper and nicely framed in five sections in a tortoise-shell setting.l An exceptional suite in a contemporary coloured state. Of the 19 plates, only 2 have the normally present numbering and engraved signature: "Adrian. Collaert fecit et excud". The other 16 are most probably some sort of proof prints before letters and numbers, which is very unusual and completely unknown in any bibliography; the leading expert, Sam Segal, whom we consulted, also knew nothing of it. He also confirmed the contemporary colouring, all done in the same brilliant hand. Nissen quotes an engraved title and 19 engravings; therefore we are lacking one plate only, which makes this an almost complete set of the already very rare suite of the animalium. The plates depict men (mostly in hunting scenes), apes, cows, bulls, horses, lions, dogs, camels, goats, deer, pigs, elephants, wolves, rhinoceroses, a chameleon, etc. - one of the nicest sets of engravings on animals from this great Flemish artist. A few plates with an old, small, repaired tear and one with a tiny damaged spot in the image, some of the mounts with old paper repairs, but overall in very good condition, with great vibrant colouring, some heightened with gold.

      Paris, Nicolas Buon, 1612; in-4; [18] leafs, 571 [+1] pages, [12] leafs, bound in speckled begining C 19th calf, boards tooled with gilt floral border, spine with five raise bands, stampled in gilt in compartments, gilt morocco lettering label, edges speckled red, marbled endpapers. One of the first two original editions published in 1612, the other was released by "Jean Berjon". Our copy contains, facing the title page, a folding engraving: "Description de l'assemblée des sorciers qu'on appelle Sabbat" signed by Crespin. According to Grillot de Givry, the original of this representation was a lost painting by Bartholomaeus Spranger. De Lancre's work is a core text of the french witchcraft. Not only that it contains one of the most detailed accounts of the witches' Sabbath that survives (almost one third of the work describes the Sabbath in elaborated detail), but it is also crucial to understanding the historical context of the great witchcraft persecutions of the 16th and 17th centuries. The text is the more important considering that the original trial records on which it is based were destroyed in the 18th century, so that it remains as a singular witness to the prosecution. Magistrate of the Bordeaux Parlement, Pierre de Lancre (1553-1631) was charged by Henri IV with conducting a famous witch hunt in 1609 in Labourd, in the Basque region of France situated in the extreme southwest bordering Spain and Navarre. Here, over four months he sentences to death several dozen persons. The account of his criminal investigation laid the foundations for the anthropology of the Basque Country for three centuries. The book contains also a precise account of a giant celebration of punishment and forgiveness for sins of witchcraft hold by the Spanish Inquisition in the city of Logrono on 7 and 8 november 1610. A lot of other topics are also covered, such as witches transformation, the Sabbath feast, Satan's coupling with witches, lycanthropy, the witches' mark, healing through illicit means or the pact with the devil. Modern research has established that De Lancre's standpoint is not so much that of a witchcraft theorist (as in the case of his contemporaries Bodin or Del Rio) but rather that of the ethnographer. He was married to the grand-niece of Montaigne.A remarkable well preserved copy of this extremley rare and weird work, very clean inside in a magnificent binding (minor restoration expertly done at spine).

Notre exemplaire contient en tête une grande gravure en tailledouce signée de Crespin et repliée: "Description de l'assemblée des sorciers qu'on appelle Sabbat".Pierre de Lancre, érudit et homme de cour, était conseiller au parlement de Bordeaux, quand il fut envoyé par Henri IV dans le pays de Labourd, province du Pays basque français, pour y instruire plusieurs procès en sorcellerie. Selon Pierre Larousse, "il fit infliger des tortures atroces à tous ces malheureux et en fit brûler vifs plus de cinq cents qui, à la suite des tortures, s"étaient reconnus coupables de magie et de sorcellerie". Le ''Tableau de l'inconstance des mauvais anges'' qu'il publia in 1612 lui valut d'être nommé conseiller d'état."Volume assez recherché et peu commun."

         Globus Coelestris

      Amsterdam 1612 - Carta geografiaca tratta dal "Tabularum Geographicarum contractarum" di Petrus Bertius, edizione latina del 1616. L'opera contiene 219 carte che illustrano questa nuova versione della geografia del Bertius, per la prima volta pubblicata nel 1600 con le carte di Barent Langenes e Cornelis Claesz. Le carte derivano dal grande Mercator/Hondius atlas, delle quali molte rappresentano una semplice riduzione. Incisione in rame, carta leggermente brunita, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. A superior rival to the pocket Ortelius atlas appeared about 1598, under the imprint of Barent Langenes and Cornelis Claesz. Claesz also published the Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum, edition with texy by Petrus Bertius, in 1600. After the death of Cornelis Claesz in 1609, Jodocus Hondius II became the new publisher of the work, composed by 7 parts in 1, with engraved title-page and 220 full-page engraved maps in text. All the maps were newly engraved and slightly larger in size, because Hondius was not able to acquire the original plates. With the new plates the work was definitely improved and enjoyed a growing demand of the public, which at that time had the choice between the Atlas Minor by Mercator and Bertius' Tabularum Geographicarum. The 219 plates, with the oval world map appearing twice, were produced to illustrate a new version of the geography of Bertius, published in 1616. According to King, their correct attribution is by Hondius, after Mercator and Hondius, taken from Bertius, who was only responsible for revising his text again. Copperplates, in very good conditions. Dimensioni 135 100mm

         Institutionum linguae Turcicae, libri quatuor [.].

      (Leipzig [and Breslau, Kirstenius] sumptibus authoris), 1612. - 8vo. 4 parts in one volume. (8), (30 [instead of 28!] incl. final blank, with extra dedication to Hector von Ernau), (52 incl. final blank), (24 incl. final blank), (58) ff., interleaved and with generous stretches of blanks between individual parts; annotated and foliated 1-421 throughout by the annotator. Title page printed in red and black. Megiser's full-page coat of arms at the end of the Turkish-Latin dictionary. Contemporary vellum binding using a 15th century Biblical manuscript leaf (Daniel 13, "Susannah and the Elders"), with handwritten title to spine. Two Arabic inscriptions to upper cover (one reading "Law kana Allah ma'na, man yakunu 'alaina" - translated from Romans 8:31, "If God be with us, who can be against us?"). First edition of "the first full-fledged Turkish grammar to be published in Europe" (Smitskamp), "a landmark in Turkish studies" (Navari), one of the most important works produced by the versatile scholar Megiser (1554-1619) from Stuttgart. This copy contains not only the rare additional printed dedication to the Carinthian nobleman Hector von Ernau, but also the extensive handwritten notes of the contemporary Arabist Johann Melchior Mader. In fact, this unique volume constitutes the fullest document extant about an only vaguely known and unresearched triangle of early 17th century enthusiasts of Arabic: Megiser, Ernau, and Mader, only the first of whom achieved fame. - The most obvious asset of the present copy lies in Mader's generous scholarly annotations both in the text as well as on the interleaved pages which expand the book, usually encompassing a mere 167 leaves, to two and a half times its normal size. While the additions in the interleaving are mostly light, those on the blanks inserted between the individual parts are often quite extensive. Part one (concerned with the Arabic alphabet and spelling, printed by the physician and orientalist Kirsten in Breslau and the only part to contain letterpress Arabic) is followed by 5½ densely handwritten pages of "Sententiae et proverbia Arabica", with 63 numbered sayings (both in Arabic script as well as in transliteration and Latin - and occasionally German - translation). Part two discusses grammar proper; part three contains specimen Turkish versions of the Lord's Prayer, the Apostles' Creed, the Decalogue, and Psalm 51, as well as two centuries of Turkish proverbs transliterated in Roman italics (including Latin, Italian, and German translations). Here, Mader has in several cases provided the Turkish in carefully pointed Ottoman script, and has sometimes corrected the printed text. In the blanks following this section, Mader has added a little over 26 closely written pages of "Proverbia et Sententiae Turcica" (he stops numbering them at 179, with a good ten pages to go). The fourth and final part offers a Latin-Turkish as well as a Turkish-Latin dictionary; this latter section in particular is replete with Mader's handwritten additions, which expand the printed word list by a generous third. At the end are another three pages of handwritten "Proverbia et Sententiae Persicae", underlining Mader's specific interest in paroemiography - a focus shared by many scholars of the time, including Erpenius. The study of proverbs was thought to offer a window into the culture and mentality behind a language, and the literally hundreds of additional examples here given by Mader not only significantly expand the known corpus of oriental adages, but with their transliterations also tell us more about the pronunciation of early 17th century Turkish. - The other merit of this volume lies in Mader's notes about the editorial genesis and authorship of Megiser's work. At the end of the extra dedication to Ernau (two printed leaves in which Megiser calls Ernau "autor", inserted between A1 and A2 and not present in any other known copy), Mader asserts that Ernau is indeed the real author of this Introduction to Turkish. Megiser, writes Mader, inserted the extra dedi [Attributes: First Edition]
