Dathenus, Petrus|EMBROIDERED BINDING|N.T.
Amsterdam, Paulus van Ravesteyn (for Dirck Pietersz.), 1615. n.p. Contemporary Embroidered Silk Binding with gilt-edged text-block, 16° 10,2 x 6,7 x 3,9 cm. (A 4 cm. tear in page 2I2 leaving a smal gap in the text, lacks a small piece of the page of psalm 127/128 mostly affecting the margin and some text on the verso. Exteriors very slightly rubbed, mostly on the spine-ends, some parts of the decorations are lost or came loose, the border on the front cover only having one side remaining. The top ribbon front and bottom ribbon back cover are later, the latter worn and partially 'hanging by a thread'. A suberb example of an early seventeenth century embroidered binding, most delicately decorated with embroidery in a pattern of vines, flowers and birds. All surrounded by an elegant design of silver-thread and gold-thread work, the threads were formed by winding very fine flexible silver or gold wire tightly round several strands of silk. The thicker cords made up of two or more such threads twisted together over coloured silks, plaited into fine cords that are here filling up the open designs of leafs. The front and back boards of the binding almost in eachothers mirror-image except for the central image, depicting two parrots a sunflower and a strawberry each. The central image on the front cover depicts a phoenix rising from the flames and the central image on the back cover depicts a peacock. The spine in four compartments with a matching design of flowers and vines. Early examples of Dutch embroidered bindings are extremely rare with only a few remaining.

RISNER, Friedrich.
Opticae libri quatuor ex voto Petri Rami novissimo Fridericum Risnerum per ejusdem in mathematicis adjutorem olim conscripti, ...Kassel, Wilhelm Wessel (sold by Johann Berner in Frankfurt), 1615. 4to. With numerous optical, astronomical and mathematical woodcut diagrams in text, woodcut headpieces, tailpieces and initials, and headpieces built up from cast fleurons. 18th-century tan calf, gold-tooled double fillets, re-backed in sheepskin. [20], 259, [1 blank] pp. Second edition of a renowned optical and mathematical work by Friedrich Risner (1533-1580), apprentice and colleague of Peter Ramus, the famous anti-Aristotelian humanist and educational reformer. The first edition appeared in 1606.Risner's mathematical abilities were highly praised by Ramus, who, in his will, even established a chair in mathematics at the Collège Royal de France with Risner as its first occupant. The first major result of the collaboration between Risner and Ramus was Risner's edition (1572) of two manuscripts discovered by Ramus: the first edition of Optics by Ibn al-Haytham (in Latin Alhazen), who worked at Cairo in the first half of the 11th century; and a greatly improved edition of Perspectiva by Witelo (in Latin Vitello), a Polish scientist of the second half of the 13th century. Alhazen's work preserved all that was known by the ancients in the field of optics, and Risner's edition and his own observations and corrections helped establish the science upon a new foundation. Risner's present Opticae, based partly on Witelo, appeared only posthumously, but was probably outlined by Ramus and f … [Click Below for Full Description]

There are at least three and perhaps more issues of the present edition. Apparently with all leaves ever present in this issue, whereas most copies lack one or more. The present Van Colster issue is clearly intended for the Dutch Republic and its supporters while the Van der Marsce issue is clearly aimed at the Spanish-controlled Southern Low Countries and its supporters. The Marcus issue is more neutral.With a 1639 inscription on an endleaf. With some manuscript notes and calculations in at least two early hands, some struck through. Some ink stains.

LEY, Jan Hendrick Jarichs van der.
Het gulden zeeghel des grooten zeevaerts, daerinne beschreven wordt de waerachtige grondt vande zeylstreken en platte pas-caerten ... Leeuwarden, Abraham vanden Rade, 1615. Oblong 4to (16.5 x 22 cm). With an emblematic engraved device/navigational diagram on the title-page and 27 (of 28) woodcut figures: 18 printed on integral leaves and the others on 3 folding plates. 18th-century(?) half vellum, blue-green paper sides, with manuscript author and title on spine. 114, [2] pp. Rare first edition of a seminal work on practical navigation, describing for the first time the method developed by Jan Hendrick Jarichs van der Ley (1565-1639) to estimate longitude at sea. He wrote it to defend his system against its critics, so it takes the form of a series of dialogues with his critics, who appear by name: Sybrant Hanssen, Willem Jansz. (Blaeu) and Hessel Gerritsz. In 1612 the Dutch States General had offered a large reward to anyone who could solve the navigational problem of accurately determining longitude at sea. Van der Ley developed a detailed system for estimating latitude and longitude based in part on estimates of the distance sailed. The estimated latitude could easily be checked by simple astronomical observations, which also helped to correct errors in the estimated longitude, which could not be checked directly. He drew his charted routes on what he called "platte pascaerten" in Mercator projection. The method's greatest disadvantage was that any errors in longitude made for the various parts of a voyage would be compounded in the estimate of the final location.

GUEVARA, Antonio de.
T'gulden boeck, van het leven ende seynd brieven van den welsprekenden orateur ende keyser Marcus Aurelius. Franeker, Rombertus Doyema, 1615. 8vo. With woodcut imperial coat of arms on title-page. Contemporary sheepskin parchment. 223, [2] ll. Very rare edition of Guevara's extremely popular and partly fictional biography of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180), which made the emperor a paragon of virtue and a popular subject in art and literature. Guevara claimed to have discovered an ancient manuscript containing twenty letters written by Marcus Aurelius, publishing them in the second half of his book, but in fact he invented them and used them as a didactic and literary device. This imaginative fictional basis for his biography no doubt resulted in a much more popular book than any true story could have, for it spoke to his contemporaries and provided a model for a wise ruler. With 2 owner's inscriptions on title-page. Some occasional browning and a small tear and hole in title-page, otherwise in very good condition. STCN (1 copy); not in Bibl. Belg.; Simoni.

Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine. 86, [9], [1 blank]; [82] pp. Interleaved copy of the second edition of "the first great poem of the Dutch Renaissance" ("Het eerste grote dichtstuk van de Noordnederlandse Renaissance", Ter Laan). The work is, as usual, bound with the first edition of a translation of Epictetus with commentary by Spieghel.The posthumously published Hart-spieghel is an influential arcadian poem divided into seven books (the only ones written of the intended nine), each devoted to one of the nine muses, and is notable for his lovely descriptions of Dutch landscapes. The Dutch linguist, philosopher and author Hendrik Laurensz. Spieghel (1549-1612) is seen as a forerunner of Vondel, Hooft and Huygens, and the present poem, first published in 1614, is his most important.The Hart-spieghel contains the usual woodcut portrait (a few copies have an engraved portrait instead). With old inscription on the flyleaf, but the interleaves still blank. Very good copy. Cat. Rijksmuseum II, p. 412; Scheepers II, 258; Simoni S225; for the author: Ter Laan, Letterkundig woordenboek, p. 500.

For more than three years (1601-1604) the Spanish Royal Army laid siege to the town and finally conquered it. The siege took so long because the town could still get its supplies by sea and because the army of the States General, under command of Maurits van Nassau, tried to distract the Spanish army by besieging surrounding cities. When Ostend surrendered, the town was no more then a ruin due to all the acts of war that had taken place.

[40], "607" [= 623], [1 blank], [16] pp. Rare first edition, in the original Latin, of a mediaeval chronicle of Cambrai and Arras, written ca. 1100 and containing the earliest known description and representation of a "virtuous" dice and board game invented ca. 965 by Wibold, Archdeacon of Noyon, named Bishop of Cambrai shortly before his death, along with a simplified version where the virtue is chosen by a spinning pointer instead of dice. Wibold's game, called "Ludus regularis seu clericalis", is described in detail in a 12-page chapter (pp. 142-153) of the chronicle itself, with extensive notes in a 13-page commentary (pp. 460-472) where the three folding game boards are also inserted. The two rectangular boards are very similar, with rectangular spaces representing 56 virtues arranged along the edges of the rectangle. The goal is to acquire as many virtues as possible. Some virtues are easier to obtain than others. The Mediaeval church often regarded dice games as tools of the devil, and Wibold developed this virtuous alternative to turn the d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bogard, 1615. 18th-century gilt-ruled sprinkled calf (front hinge worn, lower portion of rear hinge cracked), spine and red morocco label gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, red edges, green silk marker. EDITIO PRINCEPS OF THE LUDUS REGULARIS: THE "PROTOTYPE OF ALL WAGERING GAMES WITH THREE DICE" (Lhôte, tr.).  Devised by Wibold, bishop of Cambrai (d. 965), as a virtuous alternative to the common game of dice, this medieval board game is here illustrated with three large plates. Two show different board configurations - one carved in a wooden table, the other laid out as a square - and the markings of all faces of the dice. The boards have fifty-six positions, with a Christian virtue and three numeric values assigned to each.  The three cubical dice have a different combination of one to six vowels as pips on each face. The tetrahedral die has four different consonants as pips on each face. Players acquire virtues by rolling the four dice simultaneously. The three cubes determine which virtue is in play. It can be claimed only if all the vowels in that virtue appear in the top faces of the cubical dice and at least one consonant in the virtue appears on the bottom face of the tetrahedral die. Each virtue can be claimed just once. When all the possibilities had been exhausted, the player with the most virtues wins.  The third plate eliminates the use of dice entirely. It shows a wheel with a rod at the center that players spin. Each end points to one of the fifty-six virtues around the perimeter. The game's complex rules conclude with Latin verses revealing th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tanner, Adam:
Ingolstadt, Elisabeth Angermaier 1615. 4 Bll., 64 S. Rückenbroschur. 18 x 15 cm. VD17 23:238787Z; Brüning, Bibliographie der alchemistischen Literatur 1097. - Interessante Disputation des bedeutenden Ingolstädter Theologen Adam Tanner (1572-1632) zu Astronomie und Astrologie. Im ersten Teil beschäftigt er sich mit Verhälnis der beiden zueinander und dem Nutzen des Gebrauchs von Teleskopen zur Beobachtung der Sterne. Im zweiten Teil u. a. über die von Galileo Galilei im Sidereus Nuncius beschriebenen Entdeckungen. Tanner hatte bereits nach Gerüchten über Galileis Erkenntnissen selbst 1611 Sonnenflecken beobachtet. - Tanner war der Astrologie gegenüber positiv aufgeschlossen, er sah darin eine Möglichkeit himmlisch Angekündigtes auf auf Erden vorher sehen zu können. Allerdings darf sie sich nicht des Magieverdachts schuldig machen. - Tanner starb in dem Dorf Unken bei Salzburg. Das Grab ist seit einem Umbau der Kirche nicht mehr auffindbar. Der Legende nach hatten die Dorfbewohner ihm vorerst ein christliches Begräbnis verweigert, weil in seinem Nachlass ein Mikroskop mit einem kleinen haarigen Insekt gefunden wurde, das sie für einen „Glasteufel" hielten. Das Mikroskop hatte er von dem Mitentdecker der Sonnenflecken Christoph Scheiner erhalten. Auf dem Mond ist der Tannerus-Krater nach ihm benannt. - Tls. gering braunfleckig. Bücher la

GUEVARA, Antonio de.
T'gulden boeck, van het leven ende seynd brieven van den welsprekenden orateur ende keyser Marcus Aurelius. Franeker, Rombertus Doyema, 1615. 8vo. With woodcut imperial coat of arms on title-page. Contemporary sheepskin parchment. 223, [2] ll. Very rare edition of Guevara's extremely popular and partly fictional biography of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180), which made the emperor a paragon of virtue and a popular subject in art and literature. Guevara claimed to have discovered an ancient manuscript containing twenty letters written by Marcus Aurelius, publishing them in the second half of his book, but in fact he invented them and used them as a didactic and literary device. This imaginative fictional basis for his biography no doubt resulted in a much more popular book than any true story could have, for it spoke to his contemporaries and provided a model for a wise ruler. With 2 owner's inscriptions on title-page. Some occasional browning and a small tear and hole in title-page, otherwise in very good condition. STCN (1 copy); not in Bibl. Belg.; Simoni.

Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine. 86, [9], [1 blank]; [82] pp. Interleaved copy of the second edition of "the first great poem of the Dutch Renaissance" ("Het eerste grote dichtstuk van de Noordnederlandse Renaissance", Ter Laan). The work is, as usual, bound with the first edition of a translation of Epictetus with commentary by Spieghel.The posthumously published Hart-spieghel is an influential arcadian poem divided into seven books (the only ones written of the intended nine), each devoted to one of the nine muses, and is notable for his lovely descriptions of Dutch landscapes. The Dutch linguist, philosopher and author Hendrik Laurensz. Spieghel (1549-1612) is seen as a forerunner of Vondel, Hooft and Huygens, and the present poem, first published in 1614, is his most important.The Hart-spieghel contains the usual woodcut portrait (a few copies have an engraved portrait instead). With old inscription on the flyleaf, but the interleaves still blank. Very good copy. Cat. Rijksmuseum II, p. 412; Scheepers II, 258; Simoni S225; for the author: Ter Laan, Letterkundig woordenboek, p. 500.

For more than three years (1601-1604) the Spanish Royal Army laid siege to the town and finally conquered it. The siege took so long because the town could still get its supplies by sea and because the army of the States General, under command of Maurits van Nassau, tried to distract the Spanish army by besieging surrounding cities. When Ostend surrendered, the town was no more then a ruin due to all the acts of war that had taken place. The folding engraved plates show the city's fortifications, the Dutch and Spanish fleet, the different stages of the siege, and siege engines, including "Po … [Click Below for Full Description]

[40], "607" [= 623], [1 blank], [16] pp. Rare first edition, in the original Latin, of a mediaeval chronicle of Cambrai and Arras, written ca. 1100 and containing the earliest known description and representation of a "virtuous" dice and board game invented ca. 965 by Wibold, Archdeacon of Noyon, named Bishop of Cambrai shortly before his death, along with a simplified version where the virtue is chosen by a spinning pointer instead of dice. Wibold's game, called "Ludus regularis seu clericalis", is described in detail in a 12-page chapter (pp. 142-153) of the chronicle itself, with extensive notes in a 13-page commentary (pp. 460-472) where the three folding game boards are also inserted. The two rectangular boards are very similar, with rectangular spaces representing 56 virtues arranged along the edges of the rectangle. The goal is to acquire as many virtues as possible. Some virtues are easier to obtain than others. The Mediaeval church often regarded dice games as tools of the devil, and Wibold developed this virtuous alternative to turn the d … [Click Below for Full Description]

These include the Procuratie Nuove in Venice and the design of the town of Sabbioneta… In his old age, Scamozzi ‘enjoyed an undisputed international reputation and provided a direct link with Palladio for Bernini’s generation’ (Wittkower 1983, 26) and also connected ‘the Palladian tradition to the greater inventions of his pupil Longhena’(Lewis 1977, 45). Scamozzi had been the student and assistant of Andrea Palladio, many of whose works he completed after 1580, including the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza. He was highly cultivated and well traveled, spending time in Rome and Naples between 1578 and 1580, and joined the Venetian delegation sent to congratulate Sixtus V on his election as pope in 1585….

L’opera consta di LXIII capitoli, seguiti da una serie di “ricette per risanare i cani di più sorte d’infermità”. "Prima edizione italiana" del più famoso e antico trattato di caccia alla corsa ai quadrupedi di Jacques Du Fouilloux (c. 1521-1580). Cfr.

1615. '3. Mittel: Coniunction'(Conjunction.) The third plate concerns the stage of alchemical conjunction, which also covers the stages of Putrefaction, Solution, Desolution and Resolution, also Digestion and Circulation. The curious arched zodiac (the twelve figures of which do not follow the traditional order) is related to the twelve processes of the art, the correspondences being announced (perhaps, rather, hidden) by associate sigils. The interior of the mountain is revealed in the form of a rich palace, on the roof of which a phoenix bird stretches its wings. The rabbit being urged into the hole at the foot of the mountain is a reference to the well-known alchemical acrostic VITRIOL [Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificandoque Invenies Occultum Lapidem] which translates "Visit the Interior of the Earth, and by rectification you will find the hidden stone". The personifications of the seven plants, on the mountain ledges, are linked with the seven steps, or stages, of the alchemical processes, from Calcination to Tincturation, leading to the interior palace. In sequence, from bottom left, the planets are identified as Venus, Mars, Sun, Mercury (dancing on top of the mountain, with caduceus in one hand, a six-pointed star in the other), Moon, Jupiter and Saturn.

GRETSER, Jacob.
Ingolstadii, Ex Typographeo Ederiano, apud Elisabetham Angermariam, Viduam, MDCXV [1615]. FIRST EDITION. 4to, pp. [xxviii], 288, [43] index and errata, [1] blank; some spotting to title and first couple of leaves, but otherwise clean and crisp throughout; in slightly later drab boards, title in ink on spine; some light wear, but still a good copy with the book-plate of the Protestant College at Augsburg on front paste-down. Rare first edition of this treatise on blessings and curses by the prolific Jesuit controversialist and theologian Jacob Gretser (1562-1625). The first two parts are concerned with the nature and various types of benedictions and blessings, first describing divine blessings and then discussing the forms of blessings in the context of the Mass, blessings at table, consecration of churches, and the use of holy water, among other matters. Gretser pays much attention to the writings of other theologians, and is particularly keen to attack the Calvinist Lambertus Danaeus. The third book turns to an examination of curses. Gretser defines the curse and gives examples of the circumstances under which curses are permitted, citing St Augustine and St Gregory. OCLC records four copies outside Continental Europe, at Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Cornell and Manchester. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

1615. MACEDONIO, MARCELLO (1582-1619). De' nove chori de gli angioli. Cioe de' componimenti poetici del P. F. Marcello...Choro primo che contiene la corona della B. V. Teresia...Raccolta delle Compositioni, che per la Festa della sua Beatificatione si posero, nella Chiesa della Madonna... Roma: Appresso Guglielmo Facciotti, 1615. Comprehensive and very detailed description of the beatification festival of Spanish female mystic St. Teresa of Avila at the church of Santa Maria della Scala in Rome on the 5th of October, 1614, written by important Neapolitan poet and later Carmelite Friar, Marcello Macedonio. Macedonio's first work was published in 1605 in Venice and was written in Dante's Terze Rime style; it sings of the beauty of the ladies of his time and was authored under the pseudonym Filenio Pellegrino. In 1610 he underwent a conversion and was accepted by the Carmelite community at Santa Maria della Scala in the Trastevere neighborhood in Rome where he adopted the name, Marcello delle Madre di Dio. He continued his poetic output, and leading up the beatification of the famous Carmelite mystic, helped prepare a very elaborate celebration, combining visual effects with music and poetry, all of which is captured in painstaking detail in this book, including large displays in the church celebrating the saint's influence over the four continents, Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. Pamela M. Jones, in her contribution to the book 'Mapping Gendered Routes and Spaces in the Early Modern World', does a superb job helping us to visualize what the festival must have been like, wi … [Click Below for Full Description]
