First edition of the first complete history of Gelderland in Dutch, by Arend van Slichtenhorst (ca. 1615-1657), who studied at Leiden and became a lawyer inis native city Arnhem. The work was based upon, and partly a translation of Pontanus' Historiae Gelricae, but Slichtenhorst thoroughly revised, corrected and much enlarged the Latin original. Slichtenhorst starts with the topography and cities of the region, continuing with Gelderland during the reign of Julius Caesar up to the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II. The large folding map, by no one less than Willem Jansz. Blaeu, gives an overview of the entire province, while four double-page maps render parts of the province in greater detail.With presentation inscription dated 1823, and an owner's inscription dated 1694. Some words and sentences struck through, rending them unreadable. Tear on p. 1, repaired with tape, some of the folding plates reinforced with tape as well. Some waterstains thoughout the text and some plates are heavily browned. Binding rebacked, as noted. Otherwise a good copy.

        Sol Elliptic: hoc est novum e perpetuum solis contrahi soliti phaenomenon, quodnoviter inventum, strenae loco.

Al titolo raffigurazione del ''sole ellittico'', nel testo 9 tavole di osservazione solare e 10 illustrazioni, il tutto in silografia n.t., testatine e finalini ornati. Prima edizione, assai rara, di questo trattato dedicato dallo Scheiner al fenomeno di rifrazione solare all'orizzonte che, soprattutto al mattino, fa apparire il sole ellittico anziché sferico, anche attraverso l'osservazione al telescopio. Basato sulle osservazioni che l'astronomo gesuita (1573-1650) compì di ritorno da Ingolstad tra 1612 e 1613 questo lavoro si inserisce nella dibattuta querelle sulle Macchie Solari che nacque tra lo Scheiner e Galileo. Il testo apparve una seconda volta nel 1617 ma con il titolo ''Refractiones coelestes'' e sostanzialmente cambiato nel contenuto e nelle illustrazioni. Esemplare con margini ridotti (foglio del titolo rifilato sul lato esterno, con piccola perdita su 5 righe). Cinti, Galileiana, n. 53. Carli-Favaro p.15. Sommervogel VII 737. Zinner 4523.

Reliure habilement restaurée, petits cernes de mouillure très claire en marge de certains feuillets. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre brune sur le premier feuillet blanc : «Ex Bibliotheca / Francisci Cadot advocati / 1645 », et signature autographe à l'encre brune «G.[uillaume ?] Ader » sur le titre et en queue de la page 807. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de la traduction française de Jean de Montlyard. Elle succède à la traduction de Gabriel Chappuis publiée également à Lyon en 1576. Cette belle édition lyonnaise de Paul Frellon est «très recherchée, avec un frontispice gravé par Leonard Gaultier, un portrait et de très nombreuses figures hiéroglyphiques et emblématiques gravées sur bois » (Caillet). L'humaniste Jean-Pierre VALERIAN (1475-1558) a publié pour la première fois cet ouvrage, rédigé en latin, à Bâle, en 1556. Il y traite des symboles et emblèmes qui étaient dessinés dans les hiéroglyphes et rassemble sur chacun tout ce que l'on pourrait trouver chez les auteurs anciens de relatif à l'histoire naturelle, à la physique et aux phénomènes de la nature, caché sous ces ingénieuses figures. Il constitue ainsi, les 280 GRAVURES sur bois étant autant de clefs d'interprétation des figures hiéroglyphiques et emblématiques alors représentées dans les arts, le MONUMENT DE LA SYMBOLIQUE ET DE L'ICONOGRAPHIE ARTISTIQUE DE LA RENAISSANCE. On trouve également dans cet ouvrage la représentation de la symbolique des nombres exprimés par la position des doigts de la main : ce code a notamment été utilisé par le peintre Philippe de Champaigne (1602-1674) qui possédait cette édition lyonnaise de 1615. (Caillet, 10980 - Dorbon, 5036 pour l'édition latine vénitienne de 1604 - Adams, "Bibl. of french emblem books", 582). BEL EXEMPLAIRE conservé dans sa reliure d'époque. NICE COPY.

        De Christiana expeditione apud Sina suspecta ab societate jesu.

      Augsburg, Christoph. Mangium, 1615. - [14], "646" [= 648], [10] pp. With engraved title-page by Wolgang Kilian and an engraved folding plan. 19th-century tanned half sheepskin, gold-tooled spine, marbled sides. First edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci (1552-1610), an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault (1577-1628), who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). - The title-page, engraved by Wolfgang Kilian, gives the title on a cloth hanging in a portico, flanked by the figures of St Francis Xavier and Matteo Ricci, and with a small map of China, Korea, Japan and Formosa, with the Great Wall depicted, at the foot. - With library/deaccesion stamps. Engraved title-page trimmed down and mounted on browned leaf, some thumbing on the few first and last pages and some minor foxing thoughout, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities of the spine and front hinge partly cracked, otherwise good. Cordier, Sinica, col. 809; Howgego, to 1800, R40 & T66; cf. Hanotiau 14 (2nd French edition).

Recoeuillie des plus asseurés memoires.

      A Leyde: Chez Loys Elzevier 4to (20 cm; 8"). [4] ff., 293 [i.e., 297], [1] pp., 14 fold. plates, port., coat of arms.. 1615 French-language translation of De bloedige belegeringe der stad Oostende in Vlaanderen, a classic account of siege of Ostend (1601–04), a protracted battle during the Eighty Years' War (i.e., the War for Dutch Independence) that eventually ousted the Dutch from Belgium. The text is illustrated with a full page engraved portrait of Mauretius of Nassau, an engraving of his coat of arms, and => 14 engraved folding plates. A curious aspect of this Elzevir production is that the firm used very inferior paper and many of the surviving copies are severely browned in sections; this copy is no exception. The anomaly is clearly visible in the copy that the Austrian National Library (i.e., Österreichische Nationalbibliothek) digitized for googlebooks. Contemporary vellum over pasteboards; a large portion of the vellum gone from the rear cover, exposing the boards, and front free endpaper lacking. Evidence of ties. Several quires severely browned, others age-toned; some leaves loosened; worming in margins, only occasionally entering text. A lesser copy, essentially a near good one; still, rare and interesting.

        S. Asteri Episcopi amaseae homiliae Graecè & Latinè nunc primùm editae Philippo Rubenio interprete.

      Antverpiae: Ex Officina Plantiniana, apud viduam & filios Ioannis Moreti 4to (24.13 cm, 9.5"). [6] ff., 284, pp., [2] ff.. 1615 First edition. A multi-part memorial volume from the Plantin–Moretus press in honor of Philippe Rubens (1574–1611), brother of the famed artist, whose Greek and Latin rendition of the Homilies by Asterius, Bishop of Amasia (ca. 375–405), occupies the first section of the text, here in Greek and Latin printed in double columns. Little is known about Asterius, Bishop of Amasea, and there has been much scholarly debate regarding exactly which homilies should be attributed to his authorship and which to other early Christians, including Asterius the Sophist; the Catholic Encyclopedia online says his works provide "valuable material to the Christian archaeologist." The second section here includes verses Rubens composed in the later years prior to his death in 1611 and dedicated to illustrious members of his circle including the humanist Justus Lipsius, Janus Woverius, and Peter Paul Rubens and Isabelle Brant, who married in 1609. Brant’s father, Jan, composed the introductory letter to the reader. The volume was published at the request of Cardinal Ascanius Columnas in an edition of => only 750 copies, and was printed at Antwerp at the press of Moretus’ widow and sons with the famous Plantin device appearing in two versions (engraved, to the title, and woodcut, to the final recto). A full-page engraved funeral portrait of Rubens engraved by Cornelius Galle => after Peter Paul Rubens signals the beginning of the third section, in which Jan Brant records the life of his son-in-law’s brother and transcribes his epitaph. Even Balthasar Moretus contributes an epigram in honor of the deceased . In the fourth section, Rubens’ own orations and selected letters appear, i.a. his funeral oration to Philip II of Spain. Josse DeRycke contributed the final funerary tribute. Done up in fully elegant Plantin–Moretus style, the volume has in addition to its careful typography and full-page plate and devices been lavished throughout with two-line block initials and four-line historiated woodcut initials; also, it offers several intricate woodcut tailpieces. Searches of NUC Pre-1956 and WorldCat locate only eight copies in U.S. institutions, one of which has been deaccessioned; most are => not in obvious places. Period-style full brown calf, covers framed in blind double fillets, spine with gilt-stamped red leather title-label, raised bands with blind tooling extending onto covers. With a few odd spots to the text only, this is a => remarkably fine, crisp copy. All edges green.

        An exposition of certaine difficult and obscure words, and termes of the lawes of this realme. Newly amended and augmented, both in French and English, for the helpe of such young students as are desirous to attaine to the knowledge of the same.

      Printed [by Adam Islip] for the Company of Stationers, London 1615 - " 8vo. ff. [iv], 196, double column. English in Black letter, French in Roman letter. Small typographical ornament on t-p, engraved bookplate of Edward Jackson Baron, on pastedown. Light age yellowing, small closed tear at gutter of title, title and verso of last a bit dusty. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in contemporary limp vellum, remains of ties. A finely printed and well preserved copy of John Rastell’s immensely popular and useful legal dictionary; both the first English dictionary and first English law dictionary. "John Rastell (1470?-1536), a printer and barrister of Lincoln’s Inn, wrote and then published the first edition of this book in 1527. Originally, it was in Law Latin and Law French. In the second edition of 1530, a parallel English translation was added - perhaps by Rastell’s son William (1508 - 1565), who had been studying law at Oxford and would soon become a barrister himself. This [present] edition reflects the joint efforts of father and son. A reviser named Paget (a barrister of the Middle Temple may also have contributed to the work . The Rastells' work is notable in several ways. First, it is a lexicographic landmark because it antedates by 11 years the first general English dictionary, written by Sir Thomas Elyot. Second, for the its time it was a sophisticated piece of lexicography that would provide definitions for legal terms in other dictionaries for generations to come. (.John Bullokar (1616), Thomas Blount (1656), Edward Phillips (1658) and Henry Cockeram (1670) borrowed heavily from Rastell - and through the 18th century still other writers borrowed from them). Third, the side by side translations marked a typographic innovation for dictionary-makers; apart from the typefaces, the columns look surprisingly modern more than 400 years later. Fourth, the dictionary had an extraordinary life through 29 editions that spanned a period of 292 years (the final American edition having appeared in 1819) - a longevity that few if any other lawbook can rival." Bryan A. Garner. ‘Garner on Language and Writing.’ As Marvin observes, it remains a useful dictionary because it "reflects the common law at the close of the year-book period with much fidelity." A very good copy. STC, 20715. ESTC S115775 English" [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      München, Nic. Henricus, 1615. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ersten Abenteurerromans, der in Deutschland erschien; von größter Bedeutung für die weitere Entwicklung des deutschen Schelmenromans. "Als Albertinus' wichtigster Beitrag zur Weiterentwicklung der deutschen Literatur ist seine Übertragung 'Der Landstörtzer Gusman .' anzusehen, mit der er das Genre des pikaresken Romans erstmals in Deutschland einführte, dessen Einfluß sich in zahlreichen deutschen Schelmenromanen und Simpliciaden niederschlug"(Dünnhaupt). Die spanische Vorlage erschien in zwei Teilen 1599 und 1604. Das Buch ist jedoch weit mehr als eine Übersetzung. "Es bietet in größeren und kleineren Zusätzen, Veränderungen und Anmerkungen aller Art ein lebendiges Bild des deutschen Straßen- und Reiselebens an der Schwelle des 30jährigen Krieges. Die Sprache, noch von der alten Welt, ist eine kräftige, würzige und sehr belebte Prosa, die heute noch gut ins Ohr fällt" (Wolfskehl). Der 2. Teil ist ein deutsches Originalwerk Albertinus'. Das Buch fand so großen Anklang, dass es bereits 1616 neu aufgelegt wurde und weitere Auflagen 1618, 1619, 1622, 1658 und 1670 erlebte. Seine Bedeutung für die Geschichte des deutschen Romans ist kaum zu überschätzen; es eröffnet die Geschichte des Schelmen- oder Picaro-Romans, dessen Tradition über den 'Simplicissimus' und den 'Felix Krull' bis zur 'Blechtrommel' lebendig geblieben ist. Diese erste Ausgabe ist sehr selten. – Titel aufgezogen, Unterrand mit Namenseintrag entfernt und angerändert. Ohne die letzten weißen Blätter in den Vorstücken.

        Vida admirable y prodigiosas virtudes del venerable y apostolico padre Francisco del Castillo de la Compañia de Jesus, natural de Lima, ciudad de Los Reyes en la provincia del Perù.

      Jesuit priest Francisco del Castillo (1615-73) was born in Lima and educated in the Jesuit Colegio Real de San Martín. He entered the Society of Jesus as a novice on the last day of 1631 and took his final vows in early 1650. Even before that, he had begun evangelic work among the black population and notably, as did the Testerian method used in Mexico among the Indian population, he => used drawings in support of his oral delivery.Castillo studied the Chiriguano language (of the Guarani family) in expectation of being a missionary among them, but was sent to Chile as a personal chaplain to the nephew of the Viceroy instead; and upon returning to Lima a few years later he learned that the mission to the Chiriguanos had been abandoned. Then, redoubling his work among the blacks, he learned "Angolan" (i.e., probably Bantu) in order to serve his flock, and he is said to have composed doctrinal works in that language which he left in manuscript. His work among the blacks was especially directed to those ("los desamparados") who had been abandoned, often to helpless homelessness, by their owners. Among other benefactions and with the support of the viceroy, the Conde de Lemos, he constructed a church for them, La Iglesia de los Desamparados; the biography devotes pp. 270 to 278 to describing it and pp. 294 to 312 to describing its statuary. => These pages (and the sheer number of them!) suggest the richness that serious sponsors could set forth even for the humblest in late-17th-century Peru.=> The present biography is by a fellow Jesuit who knew Castillo. NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPBE, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library show two U.S. library copies, plus one in Scotland, one in Mexico, six in Spain, and one in Chile. Provenance: On title-page, old inked ownership inscription of a Jesuit colegio.

        Disputationum De Messia Judaeorum blasphemiis Oppositarum Decas. [Disputatio I-X.]

Martini, Jakob, (1570-1649) important representative of Lutheran school philosophy. Martini began in 1590 to study arts and theology at Helmstedt and continued his studies after1593 in Wittenberg, the principal place of the training of Lutheran orthodoxy. After 1597, he worked as a teacher and as a minister in the north (East Frisia). In 1602 he became a professor of the logic and Metaphysics at Wittenberg. As a pupil C. Martinis, whose humanistic ideals he maintained, he became one of the most successful advocates of the school of rhetorical-dialectically oriented logic. Martini, just as energetically, promoted the re-establishment of Metaphysics as the most essential discipline in philosophy This new School-metaphysics was aristotelian in its tenor, but it didnÕt have the form of the older Aristotelian critiicism, but instead a systematic characteristic with an ontological end. It served, with the systematic elaboration of logic, theological interests. This excluded the critical reception, for instance, of the Spanish scholastics and Ramistic humanism. After 1613, Martini, was additionally professor of Ethics at Wittenberg and after 1623, professor of theology which post he held until his death. [See: Biographisch- Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon V, 944.]These disputations were given in a series commencing on the 22nd of July, 1615 and ending on the 13th of January 1616. The pamphlets must have been issued separtately and finally gathered together and reissued with a new title-page and prefatory letter.These are all quite rare. Citations: VD17 23:329506G.

        Rei Christianae apud Iaponios Commentarius ex litteris annuis Societatis Jesu annorum 1609. 1610. 1611. 1612.

      Christophorum Mangium, Augsburg 1615 - FIRST EDITION. pp. (xii) 296 (xii), two blanks lacking, two present. Roman letter, some Italic, woodcut initials, head and tail-pieces, large woodcut emblem of the Society of Jesus on verso of T6. Very slight marginal spotting in places, a very good, clean copy in contemporary vellum, recased. First edition of Trigault's account of events in Japan 1609-12 compiled from the annual letters, written in Portuguese, by Joao Rodrigues Girao. He was an extraordinary linguist, author of the "Arte da lingoa de Japan" and the Japanese-Portuguese dictionary published in 1603 at Nagasaki. Nicolas Trigault, who had just spent close to two years in China, returned to Europe in December 1614 to launch a (hugely successful) propaganda campaign for the China mission, and was in Rome to attend the general congregation of the Jesuits that met from November 5, 1615, to January 26, 1616. He brought these letters with him specifically for the advancement of this mission, in order to obtain new funding and new missionaries in Europe for both China and Japan. The work is dedicated to the Emperor Matthias. The letters cover a pivotal moment in the Japanese history of the Jesuits, who were desperately trying to avert conflict with Japan's new ruler, the Tokugawa shogun. The Jesuits were also looking for exclusivity in Japan, as the Franciscans were creating difficulties by preaching openly, something that antagonised the new Japanese regime, and would in part lead to the severe and violent persecutin of all Christians in Japan in 1614. The annual letters, apart from their political and religious information, also constitute the only up-to-date first-hand account of Japan, its cities, economy, industries, armed forces, geography, climate and people, that was then available in western Europe. They were of the most vital interest to all those considering embarking on the great gamble of the Far Eastern trade. Joao Rodrigues Girao, as a fluent Japanese speaker, was involved at the highest level of the interaction between the Japanese and Jesuits, and provides extraordinary insight into trade negotiations, the shifting political situation, and the delicate balancing act required to ensure the safety of the mission. This edition is quite rare, with only one copy on ABPC in the last thirty years, and six in European libraries. BM STC Ger. C17, T714. Cordier, BJ, col. 272.

        DISCORSO DE' VESTIGII, ET ARGOMENTI DELLA FEDE CATHOLICA RITROUATI NELL' INDIE DA' PORTHOGHESI, E NEL MONDO NUOVO DA' CASTIGLIANI

      Rome, 1615. Later speckled paper boards. With the bookplate from the stock and reference library of H.P. Kraus on front pastedown. Minor separation of spine paper from rear joint. Very minor foxing. A very good copy. In a half morocco box. The present work is a rare separate edition of an earlier work by Giovanni Botero, first published in 1586. Botero's letter, written in 1584 and published as part of EPISTOLARUM...CAROLI CARDINALIS BORROMAEI NOMINE SCRIPATRUM..., was composed on behalf of his patron, Carlo Borromeo, to Cardinal Antonia Carafa. In the letter Botero details the Christian rituals observed by Portuguese and Spanish explorers and compares them to those of the native customs of New Spain (Mexico), Ethiopia, and Japan, remarking especially on the similarities between them. He concludes that the vestiges of Christianity were evidence of early apostolic missions to these lands. Botero was not only one of the greatest economists of the 16th century, he was one of the leading historical and political commentators of his time. An avid student of theology, Botero spent his early years preparing to take vows as a Jesuit missionary, but was prohibited from doing so as a result of his political activity. Carlo Borromeo, the Archbishop of Milan, found Botero a position as a secular priest and then soon after offered him the post as his secretary. It was during this time that Borromeo composed his letter to Cardinal Carafa, referencing the Jesuit letters of Peter Martyr, Ramusio, and Barros, as evidence of the Jesuit influence. An important early statement in support of the theory that early vestigial traces of the church could be detected from the beliefs and practices being uncovered by contemporary Jesuit voyages to Asia and the New World. This edition is not listed in EUROPEAN AMERICANA, although the work on which it was based is included. OCLC locates a single copy in Germany at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.

        DE ABASSINORUM REBUS, DEQUE AETHIOPIAE PATRIARCHIS IOANNE NONIO BARRETO, & ANDREA OVIEDO, LIBRI TRES

      Lugduni, 1615. 12mo. Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine title. Front pastedown detached from text block, modern bookplates on front pastedown. Lightly tanned. Very good. An important treatise on Ethiopia and the efforts of the Jesuit missionaries there, written by fellow Jesuit Nicolao Godinho. In 1555 the Church in Rome assigned Ethiopia to the Jesuits for missionary endeavor, and particularly Portuguese members of the Order, since there was already a small Portuguese trade with the kingdom. Joao Nunes Barreto was consecrated Bishop of Ethiopia in Lisbon, before he and fellow Jesuit Andres de Oviedo set out for Goa, where the arrived in September 1556. Here it was decided that the arrival of a foreign bishop without proper groundwork being laid might be a bad idea, and so Barreto stayed in Goa, where he died in 1562. Oviedo proceeded to Ethiopia, arriving there in the fall of 1557. He spent the next two years fruitlessly attempting to persuade the Emperor to join the Roman church, before storming out of court in 1559. He was never readmitted, although he spent the next eighteen years in missionary work there, dying in 1577. A number of Catholic missionaries were critical of how the Jesuits had behaved. Dominican Friar Luis de Urreta wrote a work, published in 1611, which was deeply critical of Oviedo and his tactics. Urreta did not help his credibility, however, by making a number of wild claims about Ethiopia. Godinho, a Portuguese Jesuit based in Rome, served as a reviser of works to be published in Portuguese. In this position he was privy to information from a wide variety of sources and able to sift out the more ridiculous assertions. He was also eager to defend the doings of his order, and Oviedo in particular. This history, then, is essentially the Jesuit side of the story. At the heart of this was the rivalry between the two orders, since Urreta's book made inferences to a group of people who had lately entered into Ethiopia causing their Christianity to be schismatic (i.e. the Jesuits, who promptly set about tearing his work apart). An important early description of East Africa and the earliest Western missions there.
