BREREWOOD, Edward
Printed for John Bill, London. Small quarto, bound with another work in contemporary limp vellum; boxed. 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). 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. 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 ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

. . Vgl. Brunet VI, 1179.- Hauptwerk, erstmals 1614 erschienen.- Der 2 Bd. (durchpaginiert) mit eigenem Titel erschien 1659 bei I. Quesnel.- Berühmter Kommentar der Paulusbriefe herausgegeben von Barthelemi Peeters (1545-1630) "Es ist ein nüchtern referierender und agumentierender Kommentar, der ausscheließlich am Literalsinn des Textes interessiert ist" (Reiser, Bibelkritik und Auslegung d. Hl. Schrift, S.24).- "Willem Hessels van Est or Estius, famous commentator on the Pauline epistles, was born at Gorcum, Holland at a time of great excitement. Though the mildest of men, his whole life was spent amidst scenes of controversy and civil war. Luther was still in full vigour, Calvin was active at Geneva, and Europe was flooded with books and pamphlets violently attacking the Catholic Church. Very few writers did more to refute the reformer's Biblical arguments than van Est. He studied classics in Utrecht and thence proceeded to Louvain, where he spent about twenty years in the study of philosophy, theology and Holy Scripture. During the last ten years there he was professor of philosophy in one of the colleges. In 1580 he received the degree of Doctor of Theology".- Titel mit hs.

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.

Del Canto, Francisco: [Peru]:
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.

Marchand, Guillaume (1555-1624), a.k.a. "Maitre Guillaume, Fou du Roi"
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sinds hij in 1550 door zijn vader was meegenomen naar London, verbleef Van Meteren in de Engelse hoofdstad en oefende daar de koophandel uit. Wel reisde hij regelmatig terug naar de Nederlanden en in het bijzonder naar Antwerpen. Daar werd hij in 1575 gearresteerd op beschuldiging van verstandhouding met de rebellen. Vanaf 1583 was Van Meteren in London consul der Nederlandse natie. Zijn verhouding tot de gereformeerde kerk was lang gespannen.

Na Van Meterens dood verscheen het (bovenstaande) door de autoriteiten gereviseerde gehele werk.

(Nürnberg), 2. Dezember 1614.. Einblattdruck. 33 x 42 cm.. Über KVK nur in der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek und im Center for Jewish History (Leo Baeck Institute) nachweisbar. - Bei dem 1614 stattgefundenen antisemitischen Fettmilch-Aufstand wurden die Frankfurter Juden aus der Stadt vertrieben, ihre Häuser und ihr Besitz geplündert und vernichtet. Nach der blutigen Niederschlagung im August 1614 konnten die Juden zurückkehren; eine finanzielle Entschädigung wurde vom Magistrat beschlossen, die allerdings nie ausgezahlt wurde. Die 1616 erlassene "Judenstättigkeit" beschränkte die Zahl der jüdischen Familien in Frankfurt auf 500. - Die finanziellen Auswirkungen durch die chaotischen Frankfurter Verhältnisse beunruhigten die deutschen Handelszentren, besonders hinsichtlich des Ablaufs der Frankfurter Messe; wohl nicht nur aus philosemitischen Gründen erklärt hier der Stadtrat Nürnbergs auf kaiserlichen Befehl, dass die Bürger und Untertanen jeden, der bei der Plünderung der Judengasse in Frankfurt beteiligt war, anzeigen müssen. Ansonsten droht Strafe. - Unbeschnittenes, sehr breitrandiges Exemplar des seltenen Dekrets!
