The Cape Verde archipelago was uninhabited until the 15th century, when Portuguese explorers discovered and colonized the islands, establishing the first European settlement in the tropics. Ideally located for the Atlantic slave trade, the islands grew prosperous throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, attracting merchants, privateers, and pirates. The end of slavery in the 19th century led to economic decline and emigration. Cape Verde gradually recovered as an important commercial center and stopover for shipping routes. Incorporated as an overseas department of Portugal in 1951, the islands continued to agitate for independence, which was peacefully achieved in 1975. The islands of the Cape Verde archipelago were discovered by Genoese and Portuguese navigators around 1456. In 1462, Portuguese settlers arrived at Santiago and founded a settlement they called Ribeira Grande. In the 16th century, the archipelago prospered from the Atlantic slave trade. Pirates occasionally attacked the Portuguese settlements. Sir Francis Drake, an English corsair privateering under a letter of marque granted by the English crown, twice sacked the (then) capital Ribeira Grande in 1585 when it was a part of the Iberian Union.

Transilvania is a historical region located in what is today the central part of Romania. Bound on the east and south by its natural borders, the Carpathian mountain range, historical Transylvania extended westward to the Apuseni Mountains. The region of Transylvania is known for the scenic beauty of its Carpathian landscape and its rich history. It also contains major cities such as Cluj-Napoca, Bra_ov, Sibiu and Târgu Mure_. The Habsburgs acquired the territory shortly after the Battle of Vienna in 1683. In 1687, the rulers of Transylvania recognized the suzerainty of the Habsburg emperor Leopold I, and the region was officially attached to the Habsburg Empire. By 1541, the entire Balkan peninsula and most of Hungary, Moldavia, Wallachia, and Transylvania were under Ottoman suzerainty, preserving partial or full internal autonomy until the mid-19th century.( Transylvania until 1711). In 1600 it was ruled by the Wallachian prince Michael the Brave (Mihai Viteazul), who was considered, later on, the precursor of modern Romania and became a point of reference for nationalists, as well as a catalyst for achieving a single Romanian state.; - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller.

PHILOLOGIE) THEOPHRASTE.
Lugduni, Viduam Ant. De Harsy, 1612. - in-8. 8ff. 367pp. 6ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure du XIXs.). Première Edition définitive de la version donnée par le grand helléniste protestant Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614) des Caractères de Théophraste, avec ses commentaires. Casaubon avait d'abord publié en 1592 une édition partielle du texte grec de Théophraste contenant 23 caractères, accompagnée de la traduction latine et de commentaires. La présente édition offre, pour la première fois, la version définitive de son travail avec 5 caractères supplémentaires et un commentaire beaucoup plus étendu, qui occupe les pp. 81 à 350. La première édition du texte grec des célèbres "Caractères" du philosophe grec, vit le jour à Nuremberg en 1527, accompagnée de la version latine par Pirkheimer. Mais c'est cette traduction commentée de Casaubon qui fit autorité. Le savant Scaliger lui écrivait notamment, après en avoir pris connaissance : "A peine j'eus gouté à tes 'Charactères de Théophraste' j'en fus transporté. Je ne pus m'empêcher de faire ton éloge avec toute la chaleur que donne l'amitié et cependant tout ce que j'ai pu dire reste très en dessous de ce que mérite ton génie". Le travail de Casaubon a servi de modèle aux études ultérieures et notamment à La Bruyère qui traduisit d'abord Théophraste, avant de l'imiter et d'ajouter à ceux du philosophe grec, ses propres "Caractères" inspirés des mœurs de son temps. "Il semble établi que la traduction de Théophraste a été faite par La Bruyère surtout d'après la traduction latine de Casaubon complétée par le commentaire de cet é … [Click Below for Full Description]

BENVENUTO, ITALIAN
London: printed by T[homas]. S[nodham]. for Iohn Stepneth, and are to be sold at his shop at the west-end of Paules Church, 1612. FIRST EDITION. This conversation manual by an Italian teacher based in London offers an intriguing glimpse into the lives and concerns of the wealthier classes in 17th century Europe. An early effort to teach language through dialogue, the book is part cultural history, part guide to better health, and it is clear evidence of the importance of the study of Italian in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. The seven dialogues cover subjects from health to travel to servants, with Italian and English text on facing pages. Many of the dialogues begin with phrases that will be familiar to all beginning language students: greeting others, selecting items of clothing, asking prices or directions, ordering food. As the conversations progress, they explore various topics that one might expect to encounter in polite society. An early morning exchange between master and servant evolves into a discussion of the importance of sleep, the optimal amount of sleep for good health, and the significance of dreams. A dialogue that begins with ordering meals leads to an involved colloquy about the benefits and disadvantages of fasting and abstinence; the virtues and defects of bread, butter, meat, dairy, and eggs; diet recommendations for the healthy and the sick; the best diet for each season; and the importance of a walk after dinner. Other dialogues include advice for travellers, observations on the political situation and life at court, and finally a discussion of t … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'idea di un formato pocket, fu concepita da Philip Galle nel 1577 che, con la collaborazione di Peeter Heyns, lanciò il nuovo genere in Olanda e Francia, con il titolo di "Specchio del mondo" (Spieghel der Werelt/Le miroir du monde). Nel 1583, Galle decise di aggiungere nuove mappe, da lui disegnate e incise, con testo curato sempre da P. Heyns: tra il 1577 e il 1598 pubblicarono ben 11 edizioni, stampate da C. Plantin; mentre il numero delle mappe arrivò a 123 nell'edizione del 1598. Dopo la morte di Ortelius, le matrici dell'Epitome passarono a Jean Baptiste Vrients che nel 1601 pubblicò ad Anversa una nuova Epitome, stampata da Henrick Swingen, con testo curato dal matematico M. Coignet. Come aveva fatto Galle, il numero delle mappe fu progressivamente aumentato con nuove tavole incise dai fratelli Ambrose & Ferdinand Arsenius, che erano all'epoca assistenti di Frans Hogenberg, ed erano stati co-incisori del Theatrum di Ortelius. L'edizione del 1612, che ricalca quella del 1609, ne comprende 137, … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORTELIUS, Abraham (1527-1598).
Antwerp: Ortelius, c 1612. Single sheet, matted (13 5/8 x 19 4/8 inches to the neat line, full margins showing the platemark). A striking and fine engraved map of the Indian Ocean, Southeast Asia, Japan, and the Philippines; with a small section of the western coast of California. Featured are also the Islands of the Indian Ocean, including the Northern coastline of New Guinea described as being part of the southern continent, also showing Beach and other information drawn from Marco Polo. The map is decorated extensively beginning with the title in a fine strapwork cartouche lower left and armorial device upper left, decorated with fine mermaids, sea monsters and ships, with "cum Privilegio" lower right, all surrounded by a broad decorative border. From an edition of Abraham Ortelius's celebrated "Theatrum orbis terrarium..." which he compiled using his many contacts in the growing network of European cartographers to secure the best existing maps. "Indiae Orientalis..." is based upon Mercator's world map of 1569, which he then had re-engraved by the talented Flemish artist Frans Hogenberg (1535-90) so that it conformed to a standard format and graphic style. Abraham Ortelius first published his atlas, "Theatrum orbis terrarium" in 1570, and as Rodney Shirley noted in his study of world maps, ushered in an era when "pre-eminence in map publishing was transferred from Italy to the Netherlands, leading to over a hundred years of Dutch supremacy in all facets of cartographical production."

Il fut lun des plus féroces juges du tribunal institué par le duc dAlbe dans les Flandres, tribunal que les flamands terrorisés baptisèrent du nom significatif de "Conseil de Sang". "Del Rio était bien placé pour écrire sur la sorcellerie puisquil fit partie de cet épouvantable tribunal. Son livre contient donc les formules de sorcellerie employées à cette époque".Il contient également un exposé des différentes procédures mises en oeuvre contre les magiciens, les sorciers ainsi que ceux qui se livrent à "la prophétie" et à la divination. Le livre IV traite du confesseur qui "soutient une double charge de juge et de médecin".(Voir Caillet, 2967. Dorbon, 1139. De Backer-Sommervogel, II, 1899-1900.

VERJUS, Antoine de.
, . . Cf. F. Vermote, The role of urban real estate in Jesuit finances and networks between Europe and China, 1612-1778 (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.

VAENIUS (Otto Van Veen)
Anvers, [David Martin pour] Philippe Lisaert, 1612. 1 vol. in-4°, vélin ivoire, titre écrit à la plume au dos. Reliure du XVIIe siècle, manque de peau en tête sous la coiffe. Agréable exemplaire. Titre orné d'un médaillon gravé en taille-douce avec le buste d'Horace, 103 fig. emblématiques à pleine page gravées à l'eau-forte (comprises dans la pagination), 212 pp., (1) f. Quelques petites rousseurs. Seconde édition de l'un des plus célèbres livres d'emblèmes du XVIIe siècle. C'est l'une des plus estimées. La première édition des emblèmes de Vaenius avait vu le jour à Anvers en 1607. Ce livre constituait un événement majeur de l'histoire de l'emblème et il fut réédité jusqu'à la fin du XVIIIe siècle. L'ouvrage était en rupture avec les précédents livres d'emblèmes, avec une iconographie prépondérante sur le texte (Vaenius était peintre, il fut le maître de Rubens), et de thèmes laïques au détriment des thèmes religieux habituels. Chaque emblème occupe presque entièrement la page de droite (avec en dessous le texte français de Meyere et de Cordemoy) alors que les textes explicatifs tirés d'Horace, Sénèque etc. avec leur adaptation hollandaise par Vaenius figurent page de gauche. Le texte latin présente quelques changements (ajouts ou altérations) par rapport à l'édition originale de 1608. En revanche, les gravures sont les mêmes. Les deux tirages de la première édition comprenaient la traduction du texte en flamand et français ou en anglais et italien.
