ORTELIUS ABRAHAM
Antwerp, 1612. Copper engraving,original color, mm 340x470; italian text and number 9 on verso. From the 1612 edition. Good condition in very early color, partly oxidated like usual for the italian 1612 edition.A very early map of the Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet, the largest showing central and South America (Peru); the second showing Florida and the southeast; and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico. The map of Florida is important as it is the first regional map of the southeastern section of North America.The map revealed little information on the interior of North America, but the details presented have been definitely linked with known features. The village of Aijx undoubtedly became known to the Spaniards as Ais, and the Mississippi, though distorted, appeared as the R.de S.Spiritu , the name given it by early Spanish explorers. Tascalisa lies on the map as closely as possible to where today's Tuscaloosa, Alabama is. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations. Burden 57: "(La Florida) is one of the very few maps printed in the sixteenth century that was based upon original Spanish sources. They were very protective of their knowledge of the Americas, a considerable source of their wealth. The author of this map, Geronimo de Chaves, was the Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain". The map of Florida is considered to be the first to show any interior detail of the present day United States, and was set the standard … [Click Below for Full Description]

LONGOMONTANUS Christian Severin (1562-1647)
TYPIS HENRICI WALDKIRCHIJ, 1612. Legatura moderna in mezza pergamena con autore e titolo breve manoscritti al dorso; guardie nuove. 83-(1 b.) pagine numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo iscritto all'interno di bella e ampia cornice silografica; in alto a destra, numerazione 4 manoscritta a penna; all'interno, testatine e capolettera silografati e numerosi diagrammi incisi. Prima, rarissima edizione, cui ne seguirono una nel 1627 e un'altra nel 1640. Sconosciuto alle più note bibliografie. Longomontanus, astronomo e astrologo danese, è meglio conosciuto per la sua associazione e il supporto dato a Tycho Brahe. Divenne assistente di Brahe nel 1589 e soggiornò nel grande osservatorio astronomico di Brahe a Uraniborg. Sul piano teorico, pur fedele al suo maestro, si aprì alle cosiderazioni sul movimento rotatorio della terra. Cfr. DSB, "?In addition to his astronomical interests, Severin also displayed considerable enthusiasm for pure mathematics, but with notably less success. Concerned principally with the quadrature of the circle, he believed that he had solved the problem with a precise evaluation of pi as equal to 78/43 root of 3?.". Esemplare in discrete condizioni, con uniforme ossidazione alle carte, più accentuate in alcune, dovute alla scadente qualità della carta. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

AMELONGHI Girolamo (e altri)
appresso Antonio Guiducci, In Firenze, 1612. In-12, pp. 141, (3). Segnatura: A-F12. Legatura in tutto marocchino ottocentesco, piatti incorniciati da filetto in oro e fregi in oro accantonati; dorso a 4 nervi delimitati da filetti in oro, titoli in oro. Lievi fisiologiche bruniture. Esemplare è appartenuto a Giovan Battista Fagiuoli, fra i più noti poeti burleschi dell'epoca sua (1660-1742), il cui autografo è posto al piede del frontespizio. Raro. Prima edizione collettiva dei tre curiosi poemi, in un primo tempo pubblicati solo separatamente. Ludovico Antonio Muratori, per non averli mai veduti (come sostenne il Fontanini), li nominò a torto e sbrigativamente sardellàrie, cioè nanerie infantili e da dozzina, quando rivestono in realtà un'importanza tutt'altro che trascurabile in ordine alla formazione del genere eroicomico della poesia nazionale. La Gigantéa, in cui si narra la guerra dei giganti per cacciare gli dei dal cielo, è opera di Girolamo Amelonghi, detto il gobbo di Pisa; la Nanéa, replica alla Gigantéa in cui si racconta la cacciata dei giganti da parte di perfidi nani, è di Michelangelo Serafini|; la Guerra de mostri, forse la più vivace e meglio congeniata (benché mai completata) della trilogia, nella quale si accenna alla campagna vittoriosa dei mostri per scalzare l'alleanza di giganti e nani, è parto di Anton Francesco Grazzini. Bibliografia: Gamba, 534: "molto raro". Melzi 424. Brunet, II, 1335. Graesse, II-613; Quadrio: VI-724. Bodleian Library, p. 43. Si veda anche G. Crimi e C.

This is Simpson's own copy of Tagereau's work on impotence as a cause of separation and divorce.

Divisa in 15 libri (i primi due, parti del terzo, undicesimo e quindicesimo, esistono ab antiquo solo in epitome), i Deipnosofisti è strutturata in forma di dialogo fra ventinove filosofi radunati a banchetto.La conversazione che si tiene presso l'intellettuale simposio è una miniera di informazioni sulla musica, la danza, i costumi, i giochi, il tempo libero, la sessualità e, in modo particolare, le abitudini culinarie del mondo antico. Per questo particolare aspetto essa è oggi ritenuta una tra le fonti informative più precise ed estese per la storia della gastronomia.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

(ACCADEMIA DELLA CRUSCA)
In Venezia, Appresso Giovanni Alberti, 1612. PRIMA edizione. In folio (cm. 32,2); bella legatura in piena pelle del Settecento a 5 nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso; pp.  (28), 960. Tagli rossi.  Mancanze con antichi restauri e foderature al frontespizio  ed alle prime 7 carte con mancanze di testo agli angoli superiori.  Rilegato nel Settecento senza le ultime 104 pagine (Indice delle voci e locuzioni latine) dopo "Il Fine" del Vocabolario. Il "Vocabolario", intorno al quale si comincio' a discutere nel 1591, divenne l'attività preminente dei Cruscanti. La prima edizione in un unico volume uscì a Venezia nel 1612. Nella compilazione del vocabolario, che costituisce il primo lessico moderno, la C. si attenne strettamente al criterio del fiorentinismo arcaizzante, criterio espresso anche nella prefazione. Pur dando la prevalenza alla lingua letteraria, gli accademici accolsero largamente i termini d'uso specie per le arti e i mestieri. Nonostante le dispute e le numerose censure che seguirono alla pubblicazione del "Vocabolario" , esso si impose subito e servì da modello alle opere analoghe di altre nazioni. La pubblicazione del Vocabolario della Crusca costituisce un momento estremamente importante per la questione della lingua; sostanzialmente tutte le discussioni sull'argomento, fino ad A. Manzoni, saranno imperniate sull'accettazione o sul rifiuto della lingua della Crusca. Printing and the mind of man, n.115. Axs

Erschien gedruckt erst 1803 unter dem Titel "Der Landtag im Herzogthum Baiern vom Jahre 1612: aus authentischen Handschriften gesammelt", herausgegeben von dem bayerischen Staatsmann und Historiker Franz von Krenner (1762-1819); hier vorliegend also die originale Handschrift, die Krenner mit unwesentlichen Änderungen wortgetreu übernahm! - Der Anlass für die Einberufung des Landtags war für den Kurfürsten Maximilian, "die Rechte der bayerischen Landschaftsversammlung als nicht autogen und originärm sondern als delegiert, von der landesherrlichen Gewalt abgeleitet zu behaupten. Daß diese Behauptung von den Landständen schließlich ohne Widerspruch hingenommen wurde, war das wichtigste Ergebnis des Landtags von 1612".

ORTELIUS ABRAHAM
Copper engraving,original color, mm 340x470; italian text and number 9 on verso. From the 1612 edition. Good condition in very early color, partly oxidated like usual for the italian 1612 edition.A very early map of the Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet, the largest showing central and South America (Peru); the second showing Florida and the southeast; and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico. The map of Florida is important as it is the first regional map of the southeastern section of North America.The map revealed little information on the interior of North America, but the details presented have been definitely linked with known features. The village of Aijx undoubtedly became known to the Spaniards as Ais, and the Mississippi, though distorted, appeared as the R.de S.Spiritu , the name given it by early Spanish explorers. Tascalisa lies on the map as closely as possible to where today's Tuscaloosa, Alabama is. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations. Burden 57: "(La Florida) is one of the very few maps printed in the sixteenth century that was based upon original Spanish sources. They were very protective of their knowledge of the Americas, a considerable source of their wealth. The author of this map, Geronimo de Chaves, was the Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain". The map of Florida is considered to be the first to show any interior detail of the present day United States, and was set the standard for mapping th … [Click Below for Full Description]

GENTILIS ALBERICUS
apud haeredes Guilielmi Antonii, 1612. Cm. 15, pp. (4) 284. Legatura settecentesca in mezza pelle con titoli e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso. Sguardia anteriore assente. Minime fenditure alle cerniere, strappetto consolidato in carta giapponese al margine interno del frontespizio (senza mancanze), lievi bruniture tipiche della carta tedesca del tempo. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Alberico Gentili (1551-1611) fu giurista erudito di chiara fama nel panorama continentale e non. Insegnò, fra l'altro, ad Oxford nel 1587 e grazie a questa dimensione non limitata ai territori italiani, le sue posizioni acquisirono grande credibilità internazionale grazie al suo "De iure belli" (1598)che rappresenta l'apice della dottrina sul diritto di guerra nel panorama cinquecentesco italiano e determinò grande influenza financo sul "De iure belli ac pacis" di Ugo Grozio. Quest'opera, edita per la prima volta nel 1599, contiene gli schemi fondamentali eleaborati nel De jure belli, ma utilizza la storia delle armi romane come topos legittimante dei principi di ius belli in essa espressi. In definitiva il De armis romanis si pone come ideale completamento del De jure belli, con i valori del paradigma imperiale di Roma al centro del progetto d'ordine internazionale pensato dall'Autore. Rarissimo e ricercato. Cfr. Iccu; Graesse, III, 50 e Brunet, II, 1534 menzionano solo altre opere..
