It is under the recommendation of Francis I that result Lives of illustrious men of Plutarch. Thereof, and thereafter the moral works had and will have a significant impact, not only for the rediscovery of antiquity (which thus had a greater impact than some scholars) and Plutarch but for the French language itself same. Montaigne wrote: "We, ignorant, were lost if we had this book surveys the mess ... This is our breviary. But not only skillful translator concerned about accuracy, it is also a very clever popularizer rather than a scholar, as he wrote to a wider audience and not for scholars, as he explains, he says that it is necessary to clarify, it looks pure French, away from hellénismes and tour pedants, a French to be praised by all specialists of the French language in the seventeenth as Vaugelas. Finally he brought the translation into a new era. Brunet, IV, 738. Restorations skilled at corners, edges and caps. pour Samuel Crespin A Cologni 1614 in Folio (38x25cm) (8f.) 674ff. (45f.).

        Enquiries touching the Diversity of Languages, and Religions through the cheife Parts of the World

      London: Printed for John Bill, 1614. Small quarto, a few stains and slight scorch-mark to the spine, a little loose at the front hinge, but in excellent original condition; bound with another work (see below) in contemporary limp vellum; boxed. "The Inhabitants of that South continent, are Idolaters" First edition: containing a little noticed discussion of the Southern Continent and its likely inhabitants. Brerewood, Professor of Astronomy and scholar in many fields, explores the spread of ancient, eastern and modern languages, discusses the tongues in which the liturgy is celebrated, and identifies the parts of the world where Christians live, and the other parts where 'idolaters' flourish. Along the way there are digressions on the height of mountains, the depth of the sea, and the dimensions of whales and elephants. "Besides presenting the religions of the world and the areas dominated by them, Brerewood discusses the size and populations of little-known regions and even speculates on the size of the Great Southern Continent..." (James Ford Bell).Of great interest is the extended reference to "Beach", the supposed Australia of Marco Polo, the "southern continent not yet discovered". ("Beach" is an old corruption, perpetuated by Mercator, stemming from a misprint of "Locach" in the 1532 edition of Grynaeus): "But if the South or Antarctique continent, be so large, as I am verily perswaded it is (even no lesse, than that of the East before mentioned, which containeth Europe, Afrique, and Asia together) then will the Idolaters be found to surpasse all the other religions, in exceeding great proportion, for that the Inhabitants of that South continent, are Idolaters, there is no question at all (as I take it) to bee made, both because in the parts hitherto known, as namely in the region of Beach, over against Java, they were found to be so: And also, because they are knowne to be no other than Idolaters, that inhabite all those parts of the other continents, that neighbour most towards them..." (p. 119). This is followed by quite a long discussion of antipodal weights and other arguments about the Southern Continent.There are also a number of references to America, including reports on the religious practices encountered by Spanish and Portuguese explorers, a report of converts "above the Bay of California, of whom as yet, histories make so little report, that of their number I can make no estimate", and an attempt to prove that the indigenous Americans were descended from Tartar stock. This attractive volume, in its contemporary limp vellum binding in original condition, once belonged to Matthew Hutton (1639-1711; his signature is on the front endpaper) who like Brerewood was a graduate of Brasenose College, Oxford, and was a well-known antiquarian and the Rector of Aynhoe.

        ARTE, Y VOCABULARIO EN LA LENGUA GENERAL DEL PERU, LLAMADA QUICHUA, Y EN LA LENGUA ESPANOLA

      Los Reyes [i.e. Lima]: Por Francisco del Canto. 1614.. [4],35,28-31 [i.e. 36-39], [1],[176] leaves. Last five leaves provided in expert facsimile. Contemporary limp vellum. Light to moderate soiling to binding; corner of rear cover chipped. Titlepage mutilated around the edges, affecting first portion of title text; mounted on newer leaf. Second leaf clumsily repaired around the edges, not affecting text. Trimmed closely at the top, affecting text in some places. Light soiling. Good. An important Indian language work, from the first (and at the time only) press in South America, printed only twenty-eight years after the beginning of printing there, and twenty-six years before the Bay Psalm Book was published. Del Canto, the owner and operator of the only press in South America at the time, was only the second printer in Peru. He acquired his press directly from Antonio Ricardo, the first printer in South America. This work begins with a grammar of the Quecha language, followed by Quecha-Spanish and Spanish-Quecha dictionaries. The book is in a handy smaller format for use in the field. Medina says this work is "extraordinariamente raro," and it is lacking from many of the great collections. This work is generally credited to Del Canto, the author of the introduction, but parts of it may be by Gonzalez Holguin, whose other works on Peruvian Indian language were published in Lima in 1607 and 1608. Sabin attributes authorship, however, to Ludovico Bertonio. Only eight copies on OCLC. MEDINA (LIMA) 58. VARGAS UGARTE 79. PALAU 17729. SABIN 5020. JCB (3)II:101. OCLC 6783843, 251190642.

        NONSENSE and PEACE]. Le reveil ["resveil"] de Maistre Guillaume aux bruits de ce temps.

      s.n., S.l. (Paris?) 1614 - 8vo. Collation: A-D4, COMPLETE. 32 pp. Beautifully bound in recent half calf over marbled boards in the antique style. Blindstamps of the now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut First edition of this "FANTASTICAL CHRONICLE OF NONSENSE ON THE SUBJECT OF PEACE. The text presents AN INEXHAUSTIBLE CATALOGUE OF THE WILDEST NEOLOGISMS" (Mercier, La Litterature Facetieuse). The pamphlet is now very rare and was apparently suppressed upon publication according to Jules Mathorez in his bibliography of Maitre Guillaume. Until the age of 40 Gaillaume Marchand (a.k.a. Maitre Guillaume) practiced as an apothecary in Louviers, Normandy. A respected Bourgeois in his town, he was conspicuous for his exemplary piety, his devotion to the Catholic religion and his hatred of the Huguenots. In 1590, when the troops of Henri IV attacked his city, Guillaume did not hesitate to take up arms to fight them. The partisan blows to his head made him a changed man. The following year we find him as a "bouffon" in the service of the Cardinal de Bourbon, before receiving the ultimate accolade: "Fou du Roi." Maitre Guillaume never recovered from the death of Henri IV, continued their dialogue with him in the realm of shadows. Maitre Guillaume also served with distinction Henri's successor Louis XIII. Contemporary accounts suggest that he was "a dreaming half-witted fellow [.] a Roman Catholic, like [Gascon] Chicot, but he was less tolerant. He so hated the reformed religion, and the Reformation itself, that he always used the words 'ruined religion' or the 'Ruin' to show a fool's contempt for what he could not understand. [.] Even Cardinals would condescend to argue with this Norman fool, and boast of victories in disputes where there was small common sense and less wit on either side, and little honour to be gained by triumphing over a 'natural.'" (SOURCE: Doran, History of Court Fools, 1858, pp. 288-9). Although little-known today, Maitre Guillaume was a popular author and cultural figure; Alfred Canal lists 77 works published by, or about, Maitre Guillaume through the year 1632, including many orations on his death in 1624. (SOURCE: Recherches historiques sur les fous des rois de France, pp. 207-229). Of this first edition two issues exist (priority indeterminate): in both the pagination skips p. 25; the final leaf of one issue is numbered "33" while the other is numbered "32." Our copy, which is perfectly complete, conforms to the latter pagination. REFERENCES: Cioranescu, XVIIeme, n° 34341. Bourgeois et Andre, IV, n° 2042. Lindsay & Neu 3035. Arbour 7165.

Wolf, Antiquare, Heidelberg. Contained in a brown cloth clamshell box, leather label on spine. ""In a recent study Duverdier has shown how Savary de Breves, Ambassador of France in Constantinople from 1584 to 1606, in a crusading spirit conceived the idea of an Oriental press, so that, with the printing of religious works in Syriac and Arabic, the Christian minorities in the Levant would be better prepared to understand and accept the Roman church when their political liberation was near. He has Arabic and Syriac type cut during his stay in Rome (1608- 1614) with which first Bellarmin's Catechism in Arabic was published in 1613. An Arabic Psalter was begun at the same time and published a year later ... The Arabic typeface for this edition was probably cut by Sottile or another Italian craftsman, and is closely modeled after a Vatical manuscript of the Psalter"" (Smitskamp).

        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.)., Un Vol. relié. - L'edition originale de la traduction d'Amyot date de 1572 chez Michel de Vascosan à Paris. 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 oeuvres 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. (8f.) 674ff. (45f.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Cabeza,cortes,cantos y contra cantos dorados. Ejemplar de extraordinaria rareza de este manual para el protocolo y cadencia de servicio en los eventos de las grandes casas. La obra tras el prologo contiene unos sonetos y redondillas de Francisco Miracles de Sotomayor y de Juan de Cardenas. Los capítulos desglosan las responsabilidades del personal de servicio: mayordomos,camareros, maestresala . Los secretarios, caballerizos,pajes de sala,tesoreros,criados,porteros,cocineros etc. Es de destacar la parte tocante al servicio en la mesa,disposición de vajillas y sobre todo como deben estar presentados los platos a la mesa. Todos los detalles de los oficios de servicio de una gran casa son tratados en esta obra. De su autor pocos datos tenemos, era natural de Loja( Granada) y dedica la obra al duque de Uceda por lo que podemos intuir que podía tratarse de alguien vinculado a la casa de Uceda. Gallardo menciona que vio el ejemplar que anota en la biblioteca de la catedral de Córdoba(falto del fol 192) pero no sabe si continuaba la obra porque no vio ejemplar para comparar. Salvá no lo tuvo, y de su rareza da idea que hoy en día solo hay un ejemplar conocido en bibliotecas institucionales españolas(Biblioteca Palacio Real).Hay un solo ejemplar en la British Library y dos en la biblioteca Nacional de Francia.

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.
