Judenverordnung
Frankfurt, J. Saur, 1614. Mit Wappenholzschnitt auf dem zweiten Titelblatt und 2 Textholzschnitten. 41 S. Geheftet. Folio. Kreutzberger, Kat. Leo Baeck Institut I, A 976: "Zweiter Abdruck der ältesten Stättigkeit der Frankfurter Juden. Der erste Abdruck, erschienen im gleichen Jahr, ebenfalls bei Saur, erfolgte als `Raubdruck`, ohne Genehmigung des Rates, und wurde daher wieder von ihm eingezogen." Dazu berichtigend sei ergänzt, dass Kreutzberger hier etwas irrt: Der erste Abdruck erschien bereits 1613. Bemerkenswert hier das Titelblatt, das einen schematischen Ring darstellt, der die erste gedruckte Darstellung einer an der Kleidung zu tragenden diffamierenden Kennzeichnung jüdischer Mitbürger ist. Die beiden kleinen Textholzschnitte stellen sog. Judenhüte dar. Auf S. 23 eine Liste der in der Frankfurter Judengasse ansässigen Familien. - Mit dem Anhang äußerst selten!

By several arguments he dates the Corpus Hermeticum to the fourth post-Christian century. Following F. A. Yates (G. Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition, pp. 398ff.)

'Mr Dickenson's bill' as the docket title has it evidences the considerable expense to the Privy Council in securing such a favorable match for the second in line to the throne and ultimately founding the Hanoverian line of succession in Elizabeth's grandson, George I. The bill is written on a folio-sized bifolium, main text on the first recto and docket title with a couple of additional notes on the final verso. The document has has the remnants of an old yellow album page on the final leaf and is browned and stained but legibly written in Elizabethan secretary hand, signed by 'John Dickenson' and counter-signed by Thomas Howard as 'Suffolke'. In the first paragraph Dickenson states his claim as: 'John Dickenson his Ma.ties late Agent with the Princes possessors of Cloves & Juliers [Duchy of Jülich-Cleves-Berg] humblie craveth allowance according to his … [Click Below for Full Description]

A very nice copy, unwashed, some browning as expected.- First printing of the Novelas outside of Spain, one year after the first and amongst the first 4. The Novelas were, as the Quijote -but to an obviously lesser level-, an immediate success, reprinted over 20 times in the 17thcentury. Salva remarks the extreme rarity of the first edition (1613, by Cuesta), claiming he didn’t know of a single copy in Spain; all early editions are very rare. This is probably the third or fourth edition, printed in the same year as Pamplona, Barcelona and Madrid [Seville]. Contains: La Gitanilla ; El amante liberal ; Rinconete y Cortadillo ; La Española Inglesa ; El Licenciado Vidriera ; La fuerça de la sangre ; El zeloso estremeño ; La illustre Fregona ; Las dos Donzellas ; La Señora Cornelia ; El casamie¯to engañoso ; La de los Perros. Rare on the market, only two complete copies of this edition have appeared at auction in 30 years, and a couple more of the Pamplona edition.

DAVID, Victorio SCIALAC ou Nasrallah Salaq al-Aquri, Gabriel SIONITE ou Jibr ' l a - ahy n et François SAVARY DE BREVES.
Savary de Brèves (excudebat Stephanus Paulinus), Superiorum permissu, ex typographia Savariana, Romae, MDCXIV (1614) Petit in-4°, reliure en veau d'époque, 474 pages. Il s'agit de la première édition de cet ouvrage. A l'origine de ce livre se trouve SAVARY DE BREVES, grand orientaliste et habile diplomate (il fit conclure entre la France et l'Empire Ottoman le fameux Traité d'Alliance et de Commerce en 1604).SAVARY DE BREVES, après son ambassade auprès de la Porte Ottomane (1591-1605), fut nommé à ROME, où il resta en poste de 1607 à 1614. Ayant rapporté de nombreux manuscrits de CONSTANTINOPLE, il voulut faire imprimer une traduction en arabe des PSAUMES de DAVID. Il fit ciseler des caractères orientaux (par Etienne PAULIN) qui sont parmi les plus beaux -dit-on- qui aient été jamais gravés, et qui sont du reste toujours conservés à la Bibliothèque nationale. Et c'est donc à Rome qu'il fit imprimer ce psautier dans sa propre maison, et à ses frais (et sans doute aussi aux frais du Pape Paul V...).I Cette impression se fit sous l'autorité de deux Maronites du Mont-Liban: Nasrallah Salaq al-'Aquri et Jibr ' l a - ahy n , mieux connus sous le nom de Victorius Scialac Accurensis et Gabriel Sionita. (Smitskamp, page 161, écrit: "Scialac fut l'un des premiers maîtres chrétiens d'Orient qui, par ses publications, défendit les causes de l'orientalisme européen et de la chrétienté orientale; il enseigna l'arabe et le syriaque à l'université de Rome entre 1610 et 1631.

BARTOLI Cosimo
Venezia, Sebastiano Combi, 1614. In-4° piccolo (22 x 7), ff. 145+(3). Frontespizio xilografico con varie raffigurazioni allegoriche entro cornice archittonica, ritratto del Bartoli al verso del f. 4, moltissime xilografie nel testo (di cui 6 a piena pagina) con figure geomtriche e operazioni geodetiche, 2 tavole xilografiche ripiegate f.t. tra i ff. 84 e 85, con segnature L5 e L6. Legatura piena pergamena coeva. Qualche ingiallitura, ma ottimo esemplare. (8167) Ristampa seicentesca, di questa nota opera del Bartoli, già pubblicata da Cosimo de Franceschi nel 1564 e nel 1589, assai apprezzata anche se non costituisce opera del tutto originale, poiché attinge in parte per le belle illustrazioni al testo dei Commentarii di Juan de Rojas Sarmiento, sull'uso dell'astrolabio pubblicati a Parigi da Vascosan nel 1550 (cfr. Mortimer, Italian XVIth Century Books, n. 45). Oltre che per la esposizione delle tecniche di misurazione, è interessante anche la descrizione di diversi "strumenti da misurare" allora utilizzati. Il fiorentino Cosimo Bartoli (1503-72), letterato e linguista, in gioventù aveva coltivato anche l'architettura e le matematiche, oltre alle discipline linguistiche; fu traduttore ed editore delle opere di Leon Battista Alberti, e dimostrò le potenzialità della lingua volgare anche in campo scientifico.

In-12 de 15 pp., maroquin bleu nuit, dos à nerfs orné, triple filet doré en encadrement sur les plats, armes au centre, double filet sur les coupes, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées (Pagnant). Pièce importante relative à la Révolte des Princes de 1614. « Oeuvre, conçue en termes énergiques, d'un homme cultivé, ayant des idées générales, même en matière de politique extérieure, et connaissant l'histoire de l'antiquité grecque et romaine. La guerre civile ne peut pas être un remède aux maux invoqués et cela d'autant plus que les puissants qui en donnent le signal seront les premiers épargnés, alors que les innocents ” qui n'en peuvent mais ” seront opprimés. Il est d'ailleurs de l'intérêt de Condé de ne pas faire la guerre : car tout le monde se retourne contre lui. Ses motifs ne subsistent plus, puisque la régente souscrit à la convocation et à la réunion des États-Généraux. Il serait donc préférable qu'au lieu de combattre la France il conduisit les forces chrétiennes contre le Turc, comme le fit autrefois Alexandre le Grand contre les Perses » (Bourgeois et André).

VEGA, Lope de.
Brusselas : Roger Velpio & Umberto Antonio. Cinquième édition très rare de ce roman.Paru pour la première fois en 1612, Pastores de Belen est un roman pastoral composé par Lope de Vega (1562-1635) à une période charnière de sa vie. Écrivain reconnu, bon vivant menant une vie plutôt désordonnée, il doit faire face, cette année là, au décès d’un de ses fils (Carlos Félix à qui est dédié l’ouvrage) et à celui de son épouse. La remise en question qui en découle le pousse à prendre un virage radical et le 24 mai 1614 il est ordonné prêtre. Composé de passages en vers et en prose, cet ouvrage, centré sur la naissance du Christ et l’adoration des bergers, est en réalité une étude sur la notion plus complexe d’origine. Charmant exemplaire dans sa reliure en vélin de l’époque.Reliure un peu salie, manque la première garde blanche. Feuillets parfois brunis, tache page 321, travail de vers en marge des pages 387 et suivantes, petites mouillures marginales. Grignotage en marge des deux premiers feuillets. Reste de lacets sur les plats. Brunet V, 1109. (10 ff.), 636 pp., (1 f.). Petit in-12, 143 x 80 Vélin crème à recouvrements, dos lisse, titre manuscrit au dos (reliure de l’époque).

BOYS, John
An exposition of the festivall Epistles and Gospels, vsed in our English Liturgie. Together with a reason why the Church did chuse the same. . The second part from the Purification of blessed Mary the Virgin, to the feast of S. Iohn the Baptist. London, Imprinted for William Aspley, 1614. 4to, pp. (iv) 159 (i); A2 B-L8 . Roman and Italic letter, sporadic Greek. Title-page within a plain double-fillet border, pages ruled in black with references section to the outer margin, head- and tailpieces. A crisp, untrimmed and surprisingly widemargined copy bound in modern speckled paper over boards with older label to front cover. A lovely copy. This is the second part of three texts forming ‘An Exposition of the Festival Epistles and Gospels, used in our English Liturgie’. The first part was published in 1613 and the third one in 1615. John Boys (1571-1625) was Dean of Canterbury. Before covering such high position, he proved himself as a very skilled preacher. While in service at St Mary’s, Cambridge, Archbishop Richard Bancroft took him into his favour, and he preached at Ashford, on the occasion of the primate holding his primary visitation there on 11 September 1607. Two years after, Boys published his first work, ‘The Minister’s Invitatorie, being An Exposition of all the Principall Scriptures used in our English Liturgie: together with a reason why the Church did chuse the same’. The work was dedicated to Bancroft, who had lately been made chancellor of the University of Oxford, and in the ‘dedicatorie epistle’ Boys speaks of his ‘larger exposition of the Gospels and Epistles … [Click Below for Full Description]

London; Arnhem; Heidelberg: Unpublished, 1614 Book. Very Good. No Binding. Signed by Author(s). 19x29cm [4]. A 1614 manuscript account of escorting the 'winter Queen' Princess Elizabeth (1596-1662, daughter of James VI/I) from Arnhem to Heidelberg following her wedding to Frederick V in February 1613, submitted by the romance writer and government-agent John Dickenson to the Privy Council for payment and counter-signed by Thomas Howard, Earl of Suffolk and Lord Treasurer. Elizabeth and her retinue - including Dickenson who joined at Arnhem - travelled from London to her husband's royal seat in Heidelberg whilst being entertained along the way by players, performances and with lavish displays of food and drink at every stop. 'Mr Dickenson's bill' as the docket title has it evidences the considerable expense to the Privy Council in securing such a favorable match for the second in line to the throne and ultimately founding the Hanoverian line of succession in Elizabeth's grandson, George I. The bill is written on a folio-sized bifolium, main text on the first recto and docket title with a couple of additional notes on the final verso. The document has has the remnants of an old yellow album page on the final leaf and is browned and stained but legibly written in Elizabethan secretary hand, signed by 'John Dickenson' and counter-signed by Thomas Howard as 'Suffolke'. In the first paragraph Dickenson states his claim as: 'John Dickenson his Ma.ties late Agent with the Princes possessors of Cloves & Juliers [Duchy of Jülich-Cleves-Berg] humblie craveth allowance according to his … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAIER, Michael
Thomas Creede, London, 1614. 4to, ff. [6], pp. 285, [14], with engraved title and an engraved architectural dedication leaf; the lettering of the first lines of the title within rules in red ink; tip of upper outer corner of title a little worn; paper flaw to lower blank edges of two leaves; lightly browned; four leaves a bit brown stained; a few early marginal ink marks or underlinings; a very good copy in early vellum; two 18th-century ownership inscriptions to lower margin of title and an early bibliographical note to upper margin. FIRST EDITION, EXTREMELY RARE, OF MAIER'S FIRST PUBLISHED WORK. ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED WITH A LETTERPRESS TITLE ONLY, THIS SECOND ISSUE IS DISTINGUISHED BY A FINELY ENGRAVED ALLEGORICAL TITLE, AND WITH AN ENGRAVED DEDICATION LEAF ADDED. ‘By 1611 he [Maier] had visited many German towns and had befriended among others the Landgrave Maurice of Hesse and Prince Christian I of Anhalt, both of whom shared his passion for alchemy. Both princes were also connected with the mysterious Rosicrucian Fraternity After the Emperor’s [Rudolph II] death in 1612, Maier appears to have taken refuge for several years in England, where he learned the language and translated Thomas Norton’s Ordinall of Alchemy into Latin. In London he published his first work, Arcana arcanissima The Arcana arcanissima is a work of special importance, not only because it was the first of Michael Maier’s books to be published, but also because it presented at length for the first time the hermetick interpretation of Greek and Egyptian myths’ (Klossowski de Rola, The Golden Game, pp. 5 … [Click Below for Full Description]

SCHEINER, Christoph; TANNER, Adam.
Eder for Elisabeth Angermaria 1614 & 1615, Ingolstadt. First edition, in a beautiful contemporary binding, of Scheiner?s very rare work containing the second earliest map of the moon ? but the first to give topographical details ? as well as the first illustrations of a telescope. It builds upon Scheiner?s 1612 discovery of sunspots, made using a telescope he built himself, which led to his famous controversy with Galileo. This work discusses almost all the astronomical issues then current, especially those brought about by the newly invented telescope. There is an extensive argument against the notion of an infinite universe, illustrated by a striking full-page woodcut on p. 17 of ?Chaos infinitum ex atomis? surrounding the sphere of fixed stars. This is followed by a detailed examination of the Copernican heliocentric theory, as well as the Tychonic system, which he supported, and that of Fracastoro; the systems are illustrated by three large diagrams. Then follow discussions of the moon (including its ?secondary light?), the sun (with a full examination of sunspots), and the planets. On p. 58 is an extraordinary map of the moon, with craters and other features labelled and listed, including Mare Crisium, Mare Tranquilitatis, Mare Foecunditatis, Mare Nectaris and the crater Aristoteles. The only earlier maps of the moon are those published in Galileo?s Sidereus Nuncius (1610), but these are ?apparently but schematic views of what Galileo saw with his telescope, for none of the features recorded on them can be identified with certainty with any known formation?

FABRICI (or FABRIZIO), Girolamo (FABRICIUS AB AQUAPENDENTE, Hieronymus).
First editions, all very rare, of four early works on animal motion and physiology by the outstanding Renaissance anatomist and surgeon and founder of embryology. They were issued separately from 1614 to 1618; after Fabrici?s death in 1619, the treatises were reissued together by Meglietti with a general title page dated 1625. The present volume appears to be a collection of the original works, issued before the addition of a general title. The outstanding Renaissance anatomist and surgeon Fabrici (c. 1533-1619) studied at Padua with Gabriele Falloppio, whom he succeeded as teacher of anatomy upon the latter?s death in 1562. William Harvey was a student of Fabrici and his De motu cordis (1628) was strongly influenced by Fabrici?s most famous work, De venarum ostiolis. Harvey refers to Fabricius? work on the organs of respiration (De respiratione) in the Prooemium: ?it is affirmed, as by Hieronymus Fabricius of Aquapendente, in his book on ?Respiration,? which has lately appeared, that as the pulsation of the heart and arteries does not suffice for the ventilation and refrigeration of the blood, therefore were the lungs fashioned to surround the heart. From this it appears that whatever has hitherto been said upon the systole and diastole, or on the motion of the heart and arteries, has been said with especial reference to the lungs.? Another of the works in this volume, De motu locali animalium, strongly influenced Giovanni Alfonso Borelli (see below). ?As an anatomist [Fabricius] was less interested in Vesalian structural architecture than a comparative approach which stre … [Click Below for Full Description]

"In 1613, the Augsburg engraver Lucas Kilian produced a set of three broadsheets of human anatomy that are some of the most intricate early examples of interactive prints extant. Composed of several layers of engraving, letterpress and etching that were cut, stacked, and glued together as liftable flaps, these prints allowed the viewer to dissect male and female corpses as a didactic exercise. Though primarily intended for medical students, the sheets also served curious general audiences, as they teemed with decorative and moralising addenda...

Contemporary blind-panelled calf on wooden boards, metal cornerpieces and central bosses, lacking clasps (catches still present). Inner cornerpieces sometime moved about 2 cm along the boards to facilitate spine repair, new endpapers to style, marginal paper reinforcement to title leaf of BCP with some loss of lower outer frame but no text, marginal fraying to next two leaves not affecting text, the double-page map of Canaan loosely inserted (enabling it to be properly viewed), some soiling and browning, a few short marginal tears, overall a very good example of a well-used Jacobean household Bible. BCP title printed in red and black. In two columns, black letter. The King James Bible, or the Authorized Version, was, in its first edition at least, a folio for pulpit use. But James also intended it to displace the alarmingly radical Geneva Bible in the affections of his Protestant subjects, and new editions of the Authorized Version were soon printed in quarto as a domestic Bible to be carried to church or read at home, as the Geneva Bible had been. In this volume, the first work is The Book of Common Prayer (Imprinted at London: by Robert Barker, printer to the Kings most excellent Maiestie, anno. 1614). The Bible has a general title dated 1613 and separate NT title page dated 1614; register is continuous. The text includes the Apocrypha.

Light to moderate soiling of binding, corner of rear cover chipped. Titlepage mutilated around edges, affecting first portion of title; mounted on newer leaf. Second leaf clumsily repaired around edges, not affecting text. Trimmed closely at 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 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 Quechua language, followed by Quechua-Spanish and Spanish-Quechua dictionaries. The book is in a handy smaller format for use in the field. Medina says this book 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 publications 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.

FABRICI (or FABRIZIO), Girolamo (FABRICIUS AB AQUAPENDENTE, Hieronymus).
First edition. First editions, all very rare, of four early works on animal motion and physiology by the outstanding Renaissance anatomist and surgeon and founder of embryology. They were issued separately from 1614 to 1618; after Fabrici's death in 1619, the treatises were reissued together by Meglietti with a general title page dated 1625. The present volume appears to be a collection of the original works, issued before the addition of a general title. The outstanding Renaissance anatomist and surgeon Fabrici (c. 1533-1619) studied at Padua with Gabriele Falloppio, whom he succeeded as teacher of anatomy upon the latter's death in 1562. William Harvey was a student of Fabrici and his De motu cordis (1628) was strongly influenced by Fabrici's most famous work, De venarum ostiolis. Harvey refers to Fabricius' work on the organs of respiration (De respiratione) in the Prooemium: "it is affirmed, as by Hieronymus Fabricius of Aquapendente, in his book on "Respiration," which has lately appeared, that as the pulsation of the heart and arteries does not suffice for the ventilation and refrigeration of the blood, therefore were the lungs fashioned to surround the heart.

Laurent, a French Huguenot in origin, established himself at Geneva where he taught literature (1597) and in 1600 became Rector of Academy. He published principally on religious topics but he had a particular interest in public theological disputations and may well have been attracted to Hermogenes as a practical manual of reference.
