        THE ANNALES, OR GENERALL CHRONICLE OF ENGLAND, begun first by maister John Stow, and after him continued and augmented with matters forreyne, and domestique, auncient and moderne, unto the end of this present yeere 1614, by Edmond Howes, gentleman.

      London, printed by Thomas Dawson for Thomas Adams, 1615, 1614. This is the first edition to include Howes augmentations, WITH A VERY EARLY MENTION OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, and the appendix on London University with separate title - page. 1615, printer's name from colophon, folio in sixes, approximately 325 x 210 mm, 12¾ x 8¼ inches, elaborate engraved architectural title page with King James at the top in the centre with his arms below, with Queen Anne and Prince Charles on either side and below a Dane, a Roman, a Saxon and a Norman, woodcut head - and tailpieces and large and small historiated initials, printed in black letter on 2 columns, pages: [20], 430, 432 - 576, 578 - 815, [1], 816 - 957, [4], 961 - 968, 967 - 988, [30] - index and colophon, lacking a blank leaf before the title page and another after the Dedication, collated and guaranteed complete otherwise, bound in full modern blind panelled calf, raised bands to spine, blind ornament in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label. Upper margin of title page trimmed off, slight damage to inner margin with 1 small repaired tear just affecting edge of image with no loss but with a small brown mark left by old tape, 2 tiny holes repaired neatly on reverse and not visible on recto, occasional light spotting or light staining, mainly to margins, mostly very clean, 1 small closed tear to lower edge of 1 page, neatly repaired with no loss of text. A very good complete copy with an early mention of Shakepeare. John Stow (1524 / 5-1605), antiquarian and historian was born in London in a well - to - do family of tallow - chandlers but nothing is known of his education. Nevertheless, he wrote English with fluency and clarity, had a good command of Latin, and possessed an extraordinary knowledge of English history and literature. He built up a large library of manuscripts and antiquarian books. His interests included chronicles, charters, ecclesiastical and municipal records, wills, literary works, and learned treatises. He was acquainted with many Renaissance humanist scholars such as John Dee, William Camden, Archbishop Matthew Parker, and Henry Savile. When he joined the Society of Antiquaries some time after its foundation in 1586, he was the only member who was not a gentleman. The Annales was first published in 1580 with the title Chronicles of England from Brute (the legendary first king of Britain). With the edition of 1605 Stow continued the history to the accession of James I. Our edition augmented and expanded by Edmund Howes reaches 1614. To Stow's brief Appendix on the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge is added a 26 page account of the colleges of London University by Sir George Buck. It is believed that Stow was the first English historian to make systematic use of public records for the purpose of his work and that by this research he did more to advance the study of fifteenth - century England than any other writer of his time. In the emendation by Edmund Howes on page 811 there is A MENTION OF SHAKESPEARE: "Our modern, and present excellent Poets which worthily flourish in their own works, and all of them in my own knowledge lived together in this Queen's reign, according to their priorities as near as I could, I have orderly set down (viz) George Gascoigne Esquire, Thomas Churchyard Esquire, Sir Edward Dyer Knight, Edmund Spencer Esquire, Sir Philip Sidney Knight, Sir John Harrington Knight, Sir Thomas Challoner Knight, Sir Francis Bacon Knight, & Sir John Davie Knight, Master John Lillie gentleman, Master George Chapman gentleman, M.W. Warner gentleman, M. Willi. Shakespeare gentleman," (and others). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Oeuvres morales et meslees. Translatées de grec en français, reveues & corrigées en plusieurs passages par le translateur

      pour Samuel Crespin, 1614. - pour Samuel Crespin, A Cologni 1614, in-folio (38x25cm), (8f.) 674ff. (45f.)., relié. - L'edizione originale della traduzione di Amyot risale al 1572 in Vascosan Michel a Parigi. Vitello pieno periodo, i nervi della colonna vertebrale 6, 6 gioielli, bordo doppio filetto sulle copertine. Jacques Amyot (1513-1594), è stato il tutore del figlio di Enrico II (futuro Carlo IX e Enrico III), è anche professore presso l'Università di Bourges e diventare grande cappellano della Francia e vescovo di Auxerre sarà importante centro di umanesimo. E 'sotto la raccomandazione di Francesco I che risultano vite degli uomini illustri di Plutarco. Thereof, e successivamente le opere morali avuto e avranno un impatto significativo, non solo per la riscoperta dell'antichità (che quindi ha avuto un impatto maggiore di alcuni studiosi), e Plutarco, ma per la lingua francese si stesso. Montaigne scriveva: "Noi, ignoranti, hanno perso se avessimo questo libro indagini il pasticcio ... Questo è il nostro breviario. Ma non solo traduttore abile preoccupato per la precisione, è anche un divulgatore molto intelligente, piuttosto che uno studioso, come scrisse a un pubblico più ampio e non per gli studiosi, come egli stesso spiega, dice che è necessario chiarire, sembra pura francese, lontano da hellénismes e pedanti turistici, un francese di essere lodato da tutti gli specialisti della lingua francese nel XVII come Vaugelas. Infine, ha portato la traduzione in una nuova era. Brunet, IV, 738. Restauratori abile a angoli, spigoli e tappi. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] L'edition originale de la traduction d'Amyot date de 1572 chez Michel de Vascosan à Paris. Reliure en plein veau d'époque, dos à 6 nerfs, 6 fleurons, double filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Jacques Amyot (1513-1594), fut le précepteur des fils de Henri II (futurs charles IX et Henri III), il sera également professeur à l'université de bourges et deviendra grand aumonier de France et évêque d'auxerre dont il fera un important centre de l'humanisme. C'est sous la recommandation de François Ier qu'il traduira Les Vies de hommes illustres de Plutarque. Celle-ci, et par la suite les œuvres morales eut et aura un impact considérable, non seulement pour la redécouverte de l'antiquité (qui eut ainsi un retentissement plus important que pour quelques érudits) et de Plutarque mais pour la langue française elle-même. Montaigne écrira : 'Nous autres, ignorants, étions perdus si ce livre ne nous eût relevés du bourbier... C'est notre bréviaire'. Mais non seulement habile traducteur soucieux de l'exactitude, il est aussi un fort habile vulgarisateur plutôt qu'un érudit, car il écrivait pour un large public et non pour les savants, aussi explique-t-il, commente-t-il ce qu'il est nécessaire de clarifier, il recherche un français pur, éloigné des hellénismes et des tour pédants, un français qui sera loué par tous les spécialistes de la langue française au XVIIème tel que Vaugelas. Enfin il fait entrer la traduction dans une ère nouvelle. Brunet, IV, 738. Restaurations habiles aux coins, coiffes et bordures.

        L'ARMATA NAVALE del capitan P. Pantera gentil'huomo comasco.. Divisa in doi libri. Ne i quali si ragiona del modo che si ha a tenere per formare, ordinare e conservare un'armata maritima. Con molti avvertimenti necessari alla navigatine, e alla battaglia. Con un vocabulario, nel quale si dichiarano i nomi, e le voci marinaresche. Roma, Egidio Spada, 1614

      1614. in - 4, ff. (16), pp.408, ff.(28), arma araldica inc. sul titolo di Francesco di Castro dedicatario dell'opera, varie grandi iniziali silografiche istoriate, impresa dello stampatore in fine. Legatura coeva in p.pelle zigrinata, dorso a nervi con titolo e fregi oro. Prima e unica edizione del più esteso trattato antico di arte navale militare, dove si "ragiona del modo che si ha a tenere per formare, ordinare e conservare un'armata maritima. Con molti avvertimenti necessari alla navigatione, e alla battaglia". Pantero Pantera (Como 1568 - 1626), fu capitano della flotta pontificia e scrisse a bordo della sua nave "Santa Lucia" una "Idrografia nautica del Mediterraneo" e questo testo, fondamentale per le marinerie europee fino all'inizio dell'Ottocento; Nelle 56 pagine finali un vasto indice delle materie precede il vocabolario nautico. Massimo trattatista di tattica navale, Nel 1617 tornò a Como e costruì una villa a Blevio, oggi perduta. Molte sono le informazioni pratiche e curiose sulla vita di bordo: "I rematori hanno per vitto trenta once di biscotto ogni giorno e una minestra di fave alternativa, cioè un giorno sì e un giorno no. L'olio per condirla non si dà quando si naviga perché non aggravi la ciurma che deve essere agilissima e più atta alla fatica. Hanno diritto alla carne e al vino soltanto quattro volte all'anno".

        Die Ernst General Tafel/Die Beschreibung und den Circkel des gantzen Erdtichs und Meeres innhaltende.

      Basle.. [1614]. Black and white woodcut map of the world, relief shown pictorially, decorative border, text on verso: Die erste Landtafel..., printed surface measures 32 x 36cm and sheet 33.3 x 42cm, a 2 - 2.5cm strip of contemporary paper runs along lower edge the whole measuring 35 x 42cm. Browning, surface a little abraded in two small places. Die Ernst General Tafel... was first published in Munster's Cosmographia in 1544. Cosmographia, a very early German description of the world, was a very popular work running to many editions in German as well as translations into Latin, French, English, Italian and Czech. This interesting depiction of the world as seen from the perspective of information available in the 16th century shows the vast expanse of Terra Australis Non Dum Cognita (the southern land not yet known) along the bottom of the map. The nomenclature of Marco Polo is used extensively on the map including on the two northern pointing peninsulas, roughly where Australia is today the words Beach, Lucaoh and Maletur are printed on one and above the second, Java Minor. Persia, India and Orientalis are shown as regions in Asia with Mongol, China, Cathai (a term used by Marco Polo for northern China), Quinsai (modern day Hangzhou described by Marco Polo as "without fail the most important city and the best there is in all the world"), Japan, Calecut (modern day Kozhikode in the Indian State of Kerala), Sumatra and Java also named. .

        Eirenarcha, or of the Office of the Justices of the Peace. [bound with] The Duties of Constables, Borsholders, Tythingmen, and such other Lowe and Lay Ministers of the Peace

      Company of Stationers, London 1614 - Two works bound together, small octavo; title, 634, [88] pp.; 94 pp. (Duties of Constables); contemporary limp vellum with faint manuscript lettering to spine. A handsome compendium of two early legal manuals: these early seventeenth-century handbooks of common law were prepared for local magistrates, at the time known as Justices of the Peace. The Eirenarcha was written by English magistrate and luminary William Lambard (1536-1601); the work is remarkable for its clarity, easy style and use of pragmatic precedent. The author was a Justice of the Peace for Kent and used his considerable personal experience to produce a common law handbook in comprehensible English free from tortured legalese. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states the Eirenarcha is 'written in a clear and unaffected style, this manual remained for a long time the standard authority'.In seventeenth-century England local magistrates were sourced from landholders and the aristocracy, many of whom were unfamiliar with legal terminology. The Eirenarcha waswritten for this audience, and the result is an amazing insight into everyday life and law in Elizabethan England (the book was first published in 1581 and remained substantially unchanged through later editions). Witchcraft prohibitions exist alongside modern laws such as those regarding concealed pistols, while a strong anti-Catholic theme is evident throughout. Title-page discoloured with some loss of the fore-edge, neatly laid down, preliminary leaves thumbed, frayed at corners and generally a bit damped, last few leaves of the second book chipped at corners with seventeenth century manuscript notations; overall good in worn contemporary limp vellum with faint manuscript lettering to spine.

        Biao du shuo [trans.: Explanation of the Gnomon].

      Numerous woodcuts (some full-page & some half-page) in the text. 6, 3, 40 folding leaves. 8vo, old, possibly orig. wrappers (with several repairs, one of which touches but does not obscure the text), orig. block-printed label on upper cover, new stitching. [Peking: 2nd Preface dated 1614]. First edition, and very rare, of this work on the gnomon, one of the first astronomical measuring instruments, and its uses in astronomy and surveying. This work is important in the history of astronomy as it states here for the first time in China the doctrine that the earth is spherical. Ursis is also the first to state in China, in the present work, that the earth is divided into spaces separated by meridians and parallels. He uses geometrical analysis of planetary motions and the Euclidean geometry necessary for applying it to gnomonics, stereographic projections of the astrolabe, and in surveying. The beginning of the text discusses the five questions regarding latitude. In one of the woodcuts, the earth is depicted as casting a shadow as the sun revolves around it. In another of the woodcuts, Ursis shows two boats taking opposite routes from the Atlantic Ocean ("Da Xiyang") to the Indian Ocean ("Xiao Xiyang") with the endpoint of their journeys shown at the bottom of the earth. Europe, Asia, and Africa are depicted on a spherical globe, rather than as a square image. In the following woodcut, we see the same two ships leaving the Atlantic but now North and South America are shown. This is the first depiction of the Americas in a Chinese-printed book. The fact that ships could leave the same point, going in opposite directions, and yet arrive at the same destination demonstrated the earth is round. The remainder of the book is concerned with the height of the sun, the length of shadow caused by a moving sun, geographical matters, the summer and winter solstice, and surveying problems using the gnomon. One of the two prefaces was written by Xiong Mingyu (1579-1649), the most senior member of the Fang School. He was one of the first of the late Ming scholars to accept the Jesuits' notion of the shape of the earth. He states in his preface that the Chinese already had had the same concept of the spherical globe in the time of the Yellow Emperor but social disruptions and the destruction of many books within China caused this knowledge to be lost. Sabatino de Ursis (1575-1620), a member of a prominent family in Naples, arrived in Peking in 1607 in order to help Matteo Ricci in his scientific work. He also worked together with Xú Guangqi and Ricci on the translation of Euclid's Elements into Chinese. Following the death of Ricci in 1610, Ursis became the principal Jesuit astronomer in China. Ursis was involved in the reform of the Chinese calendar (based on his prediction of a solar eclipse on 15 December 1610 which the Chinese had not anticipated), translated the hydraulics portions of Ramelli's book into Chinese (1612), and wrote a work on the armillary sphere (1611). These were later gathered and published in Peking in 1629 in a multi-volume encyclopedia of western astronomical science.

Also two Tables, one of Husbandry, and the other of Huswifery, at the end of the booke, for the better and easier finding out of any matter contained in the same. 1614. 8vo, approximately 185 x 145 mm, 7½ x 5½ inches, printed in black letter, pages 161, plus 3 pages of Tables, bound in full mottled antique panelled calf, rebacked to style, raised bands to spine, gilt lettered maroon label, new endpapers. Title page and final page worn at fore - edge with outer corners repaired, no loss of text, last leaf has outer margin strengthened, no loss of text, title page dusty, 1 page has lower outer corner tear neatly repaired, no loss of text, a few leaves have very small marginal closed tears neatly repaired with archival tape, a few corners are dusty and fragile a few corners have tips missing, some pale staining to 4 leaves, occasional small light stains, mainly to margins, brown stain to last 4 leaves, all text still legible, some top margins cropped with partial loss of running title and a few page numbers, last 5 leaves have tiny patch of worming in inner margin at top, last 3 pages of Index slightly dusty. Though only a good copy early editions are scarce. Thomas Tusser (1524?"1580) was educated at Eton and at Cambridge and was best known for this instructional poem. On leaving Cambridge he went to court in the service of William, 1st Baron Paget of Beaudesart, as a musician. After ten years of life at court, he married and settled as a farmer in Suffolk. His major work was first published in 1557 as the Hundred Good Pointes of Husbandrie and this was enlarged to the Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandry in 1573. Both editions were frequently reprinted. Tusser includes a homely mix of instructions and observations about farming and country customs which offer a fascinating insight into life in Tudor England, and his work records many terms and proverbs in print for the first time (eg: A fool and his money are soon parted). The work is written in verse and takes the form of a calendar with instructions to the farmer on what he should be doing in each month. In August there is a page on the gathering and storing of hops which were only introduced in the early 16th century but are here referred to as a common crop. The section on Huswifery which runs from page 119 to 138 gives instruction and advice on the daily duties of the farmer's wife.

        Histoire de la mission des peres capucins en l’isle de Maragnan et terres circonuoysines ou est traicte des singularitez admirables & des meurs merueilleuses des Indiens habitants de ce pais avec les missiues et aduis qui ont este enuoyez de nouveau, par ....

      Paris, De l'Imprimerie de François Huby, 1614.. FIRST EDITION. Thick 8° (17 x 11 cm.), contemporary vellum (slightly cockled); old paper label on spine lettered in an early hand (slightly chipped); in a maroon slipcase. Elaborate engraved title page (rubbed with slight loss at fore-edge). Seven full-page engravings in text, signed by Léonard Gaultier. Woodcut initials and headpieces; typographical headpieces. Single wormtrail in Pp-Aaa, touching some letters without loss; leaf 290 with small tear. Some light dampstains and occasional spotting. Overall in good condition. Armorial bookplate of Charles Claude Brulart, Marquis de Genlis (b. 1733). Defaced paper label of "Bibliothèque du [Chat?]eau de ___" above armorial bookplate. Old ink manuscript note ("Q.96," a shelfmark?) at foot of title page. Engraved title page, [7], 395, [17] leaves, with seven full-page engravings. *** FIRST EDITION, second issue. The first issue was published earlier in 1614; this issue has corrections to a number of typos in the main text (see Borba) and a lengthier index at the end. This is the first and most important written account of the Capuchin mission to Maranhão, an island on the coast of Brazil: Sabin notes that it is the earliest known mention of Maranhão. It includes engravings of Tupi Indians. Borba de Moraes notes, "The narrative of the journey, and all the events, is the principal printed French source that exists about this tentative colonization of the north of Brazil. Although not endowed with the spontaneity and the literary talent of Yves d’Evreux, Claude d’Abbeville gives us valuable information concerning the religion and 'astronomy" of the Tupis, not to be found in any other writings." Duviols says of the @Histoire, "C'est le texte le plus important - avec celui d'Yves d'Evreux - non seulement sur la tentative de colonisation française dans l'île de Maranhão, mais surtout pour les renseignements précieux qu'il fournit sur 'les singularitez admirables et les moeurs merveilleuses des Indiens'." In 1612 a mission composed of the French Capuchins Yves d’Evreux, Arsène de Paris, Ambroise d’Amiens, and Claude d’Abbeville, accompanied Daniel de la Rivardière’s expedition to settle Maranhão. D’Abbeville relates the mission’s westward voyage, the arrival in Maranhão, the death of Father Ambroise, and the activities of the Capuchins on the island. He also adds detailed descriptions of the region, including the animals, birds and fish found there, as well as chapters on the customs, laws, wars and history of the Tupi indians. The account ends with the return voyage to France, their arrival and welcome in Paris, and the ensuing festivities. Arsène and d’Abbeville brought back to France six important Tupi, portraits of whom appear in this account (see below). The Indian ambassadors caused a sensation in Paris, where curious crowds flocked to see them. Borba de Moraes notes that "the @Histoire de la mission seems to have been printed very quickly in order to take advantage of the presence in Paris of the six Indians from Maranh o .... It appears that the first edition [i.e., issue] was soon out of print, and a second was printed. This was published with the misprints corrected, and a more extensive index was compiled and printed in 35 pp. in double cols." This @Histoire includes a number of fascinating engravings of the Tupi Indians. At the top of the engraved title page, eight Indians petition Marie de Medicis, Regent of France (small banners with Latin flow from their mouths); below, Tupi (again with Latin banners) petition the Pope and St. Francis. At the lower left, a Tupi grills two human legs over an open fire as a woman looks on; at the lower right, kneeling Indians are blessed by Capuchin friars. The first full-page engraving (f. 89v) shows a crucifix being erected in Maranhão, with the Capuchins and a French soldier kneeling in the foreground, a crowd of Tupi watching, a group of teepees in the background, and a ship riding at anchor in the harbor. Three portraits show Tupi in native dress, all with weapons, one with extensive tattoos (ff. 347v, 355v, 358v). The other 3 portraits show Tupi wearing the soutane in which they were baptized, carrying a tall hat and a fleur-de-lis (ff. 361v, 363v, 364v). Hemming describes in detail how the missionaries and the six Tupi ambassadors "landed at Le Havre after a stormy crossing and were given a great reception, with a procession, gun salute, visit to the Governor and acclamation by the crowd. There were similar festivities in Rouen. But the greatest excitement was in Paris. A hundred priests greeted the Tupinambá party at the city gates, and escorted it to the Capuchin church for a mass attended by a galaxy of French nobility. The Tupinambá marched in the procession wearing their feathers and holding clubs. The Parisians were wild with curiosity: people poured in from the countryside, and the excited crowd burst the gates of the Capuchin convent housing the Indians. The Tupinambá were taken to the Louvre to visit King Louis XIII, and their leader made a speech in Tupi. But the inevitable European diseases struck these Americans: the sixty-year-old Carypira caught influenza and died, and two of his companions died soon after. They were buried in Franciscan habits. But the three survivors received the full panoply of French official hospitality. They were taken for baptism in the Capuchin church in the Faubourg Saint-Honoré, wearing long soutanes of white taffeta buttoned down the front with silk buttons and with small valois collars, and carrying tall hats with white plumes. Each carried a fleur-de-lys as a symbol of submission to the French. King Louis and his mother the Regent Marie de Médicis acted as godparents, and the Archbishop of Paris officiated. The leading Tupinambá was christened Louis-Marie, and he made a speech of acceptance. The three were then taken to the convent of Sainte-Claire to satisfy the curiosity of its nuns, who were desperate to see the exotic strangers" (@Red Gold p. 206). Léonard Gaultier (who sometimes signed himself "Galter"), a French engraver, was born at Mainz about 1561 and died in Paris in 1641. The precision and style of his prints recalls those of the Wierix brothers and Crispyn van de Passe. The Abbé de Marolles possessed upwards of eight hundred prints by this prolific engraver, many of them after his own designs. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 5-7. Alden 614/25. Duviols 29.

        HISTOIRE DES CHOSES PLUS MEMORABLES ADVENUES TANT EZ INDES ORIENTALES, QUE AUTRES PAÏS DE LA DESCOUVERTE DES PORTUGAIS, EN L'ESTABLISSMENT ET PROGREZ DE LA FOY CHRESTIENNE & CATHOLIQUE: ET PRINCIPALEMENT DE CE QUE LES RELIGIEUX DE LA COMPAGNIE DE IESUS Y ONT FAICT & ENDURÉ POUR LA MESME FIN; DEPUIS QU'ILS Y SONT ENTREZ JUSQUES A L'AN 1600

      Bordeaux: Par S. Millanges, 1614. Small quarto. Contemporary vellum over boards, leather ties. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Some light soiling to second volume. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. First edition. One of the major early histories of western endeavor in the Orient and Brazil, and rare, the third volume more so than the first two. Pierre de Jarric (1566-1617) was a Jesuit writer and professor in Bordeaux. Being unable to join the missionary efforts of the Jesuits in the field, he elected instead to put his pen to good use on their behalf. The result was the present work, which records the order's efforts in Brazil and the East Indies. Jarric had at first simply intended to translate Luis de Guzman's HISTORIA DE LAS MISSIONES.... (Alcala de Henares, 1601), but instead decided to expand upon that work. His labor took many years and in order to keep his material up to date he entered into correspondence with, among others, Father Fernao Guerreiro who was producing a famous series of annual reports on Jesuit business in the East, and who published a summary of those accounts in Lisbon in 1605. This led Jarric to conceive instead a broader-based history, but from a more secular point of view than either Guzman or Guerreiro. Because of his diligence, the work contains much useful information on the colonial and missionary activities of Europe, particularly the Portuguese. The second volume contains important American references on pages 248-359, consisting of a substantial account of the Jesuits in Brazil. This important work was widely circulated, and was later translated into Latin. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 610/36. BORBA DE MORAES I, p.358, 425-26. DeBACKER-SOMMERVOGEL IV:750. CORDIER (JAPAN) 260/1.

The work, presumably printed on the occasion of a pastoral visitation, is introduced by a dedication from the Augustinian friar Theobaldo Marano to Giovanni Battista d’Aste (‘d’Asti’?), general of the Augustinian order (‘Religio’). Marano much praises Aste for sending the ‘venerable master’ friar Gasparo Pagni, or ‘Panni’, as a preacher to the church of S. Eufemia in Verona; he enthusiastically celebrates the virtues of the friar, who is said to give memorable sermons and lectures. All the community wants to express sincere gratitude to Pagni, and many lyrics have been composed for him, but Marano collected only the best ones in order to make them ‘eternal through printing’ (‘fatte eterne col mez[z]o delle stampe’). According to the literary conventions of the time, these poems are short and enriched with puns and rhetoric figures, in order to portray the subject as an almost mythical character: his words are compared to holy flames, milk and ambrosia, he makes the sea of sin less frightful, because in his preaching he is accompanied by flights of angels. Frequent references are made to the figures of classical Greek mythology and in particular to the Muses: his birth was greeted by favorable Planets’ alignment, so that Clio, the Parnassus, Fame, Honour and Victory became his masters and guides. Marano includes also a short wordplay: Panni (‘cloth, clothes’ in Italian) saves the souls from the devil hiding them under his cloth, i.e. with himself. The final leaves show several compositions signed by people particularly devoted to the friar, with special mises-en-page relating to physical commemorative plaques. The present collection, is to be placed into the literary genre of the ‘Sacre Muse’, ephemeral devotional compositions popular in Italy during the 16th and 17th Centuries. The prior general of the Augustinian order, Giovanni Battista d’Aste, can be probably connected to the Buzi Ceva d’Aste family, whose archives relating to the years 1611-1761 are currently kept by the State Archives of Rome. Italian State Archives, Sistema Informativo degli Archivi di Stato, archivi-sias.it. Not in BM STC It. C17th. S. Ussia,’Le muse sacre: poesia religiosa dei secoli XVI e XVIII’, Novara, Marazza, 1999.
