        La nouvelle Troye ou Memorable histoire du siege d'Ostende. Le plus signalé qu'on ait veu en l'Europe. En laquelle sont descripts & naifvement representés en diverses figures, les assauts, deffenses, inventions de guerre, mines, contremines, retranchemens, combats par terre & par mer, & autres choses remarcables advenues de part & d'autre, avec ce qui s'est passé par chascun jour durant ledit siege depuis le 5 iuing 1601 iusqu'au 20 septemb. 1604 qu'elle fut renduë. 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.

        Historia del regno di Voxu del Giapone, dell?antichita, nobilta, e valore del suo re Idate Masamune... E dell?ambasciate c?ha inviata alla S.ta di N. S. Papa Paolo V, e delli suoi successi, con altre varie cose di edificatione, e gusto spir

      Very rare FIRST EDITION of this critical source for THE SECOND JAPANESE MISSION TO EUROPE of 1614, a Franciscan public relations event that sought to repeat the success of the first mission of 1585?"which had been brilliantly engineered by their rivals the Jesuits?"and to inspire financial and political support. The number of publications produced by the Franciscans concerning Japan is small compared to those by Jesuits. Although the results of the embassy for the mission back in Japan were negligible, the trip nonetheless deserves an important place in the history of East-West exchange. The embassy was masterminded by the Franciscan missionary Luis Sotelo (1574-1624), active in Japan since 1603. In 1613, when persecution of all Christians began to increase in Japan, he was thrown into jail in Edo, slated for martyrdom. The intervention of the daimyo of Oshu, Date Masamune, an ally of the Tokagawas in Northern Japan, prevented this, and an embassy to Europe was soonafter envisioned. The embassy set out in October of 1613 with the daimyo?s representative and a large retinue of Japanese merchants and attendants (roughly 68 persons according to Lach). After stops in Manila and Acapulco, the embassy proceeded to Mexico City; roughly half of the original party disembarked there, with the remainder arriving in Seville in October of 1614."Shortly after their arrival a brief Relacion was published which purported to summarize an edict by Date establishing the Christian faith in ?all of his kingdom? and ordering the dispatch of his ambassador to Spain in the company of Sotelo, a native Sevillian. The ambassador presented a letter from Date to the city as well as token gifts of a sword and a poniard. In the letter, Date indicated his desire to introduce Christianity to his realm and asked for shipbuilders and pilots to be sent to him who might help establish an annual voyage between Seville and Sendai, his major port. Once the welcoming festivities ended, the embassy hurried on to Madrid and a reception by Philip III on Dec. 20, 1614. From Date the king received a letter, similar in content to the letter addressed to Seville, five Japanese utensils as gifts, and proposed articles of agreement as the basis for a treaty. Philip?s reaction to the proposal for a treaty of perpetual friendship was a polite refusal to commit himself. While the embassy toured in Italy during 1615-16, news began reaching Spain about the renewal in 1612-14 of the attacks upon Christianity in Japan" (Lach, Asia, III.1.331-32). The present work gives an account of all of the events described above, along with a general introduction to the region, and includes the text of the ruler?s edicts and letters in Italian and Latin (pp. 33-34, 65-66), the text of an oration made by a Franciscan during the papal presentation, as well as the text of the official papal response.OCLC records three American copies: NYPL, the Bell Library and University of Washington. We find no record for another copy of this work in first edition on the market in many years, though the German translation published two years later (1617) has surfaced recently.* Alt-Japan 58; Piantanida 1363; Brunet I.222; Graesse I.97; Lach, Asia in the Making of Europe III.1.331-32; C.

        Histoire Romaine continuée depuis la fondation de la Ville de Rome jusques à l'Empire de Tybere. Mise en nostre langue par le commandement du Roy, et dédiée à sa Majesté. Par F. Nicolas Coeffeteau, son Prédicateur ordinaire.

      A Paris, en la boutique de Nivelle, chez Sébastien Cramoisy, 1615. - in-8. 16ff. 489pp. (i.e. 519). 10ff. Plein maroquin olive, dos à nerfs, plats et entrenerfs richement ornés d'un semis doré de fleur de lys, tranches dorées, gardes doublées de papier à la cuve (reliure de l'époque, petits accrocs aux coiffes). Edition Originale de l'une des traductions les plus influentes de la littérature française du 17e siècle. Nicolas Coeffeteau (1571-1623), natif du Maine, fut notamment prédicateur de Henri IV puis de Louis XIII et c'est à la demande de ce dernier, alors âgé de treize ans, qu'il composa cet ouvrage qui eut immédiatement le plus grand succès. "De toutes les traductions que vit éclore cette période de notre littérature, aucun n'eut autant de réputation que celle de Florus, que publia Coeffeteau en 1615. (Il) estimait cette traduction le plus beau de tous ses ouvrages. Il l'avait soignée avec une sorte de prédilection, luttant d'élégance avec l'original" (Charles Urbain). Cette première édition datée de 1615 est très rare. Fenètre réparée anciennement dans le blanc de la page de titre. Charmant exemplaire en reliure de l'époque fleurdelysée. L'exemplaire conservé à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France est relié en maroquin olive aux armes de Louis XIII. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Printed by Edward Griffin for John Budge, 1615, Leather, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionFull Book Title: Mirrour of Mercie Or The Prodigals Conuersion Briefely, And Learnedly Expounded, And Full Of Comfortable Consolations For All Penitent Sinners [A Mirror of Mercy; or the Prodigal's Conversion Briefly and Learnedly Expounded, and Full of Comfortable Consolations for All Penitend Sinners]A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing thus, being a variant of the original 1614 edition, of this treatise on Luke 15: 11-24, with an introduction (titled as an "Epistle" by William Cooper, followed by the Lucian verses to be treated by Cooper, and, of course, with the large majority of the 272 pages devoted to Cooper's treatment of the verses commonly known as The Parable of the Prodigal Son.William Cooper [sometimes known as Couper or Cowper] (1568-1619), a prominent figure in the Church of his day, served as Bishop of Galloway (Scotland) and Dean of the Chapter Royal. He was sent to the Tower of London by King James I to prevail upon Andrew Meville, the Scottish scholar, theologian, and religious reformer, to change certain of his views to which the King was opposed and for which the King had imprisoned him, but was unable to move Meville from his position. In his The Historie of the Kirk of Scotland [The History of the Church of Scotland], David Calderwood described Cooper as "...a man filled with self-conceate, and impatient of anie contradiction, more vehement in the wrong course than ever he was fervent in the right, wherein he seemed to be fervent enough. He made his residence in the Canongate, neere to the Chapell Royall, whereof he was deane, and went sometimes but once in two years till his diocese. When he went he behaved himself verie imperiouslie". John Spottiswoode, Archbishop of St. Andrews, Primate of all Scotland, and a historian of that land, said of Cooper that he "affected too much the applause of the people". The copy offered here is in Very Good condition, with some wear to the binding and the presumed once to have been present overhand of the front cover lacking and the overhang showing some splitting, moderate hole to the upper rear cover, spine head overhang worn off and spine tail overhang showing wear. The pages show some darkening at the edges and the front and rear pages are darkened from having been adjacent to the covers but remain quite legible. The final leaf of text is lacking. The spine carries a handwritten title for the book. (A diminutive volume, the book stands approximately 4 7/8 inches high and measures approximately 2 13/16 inches across the front.) The work is quite scarce with WorldCat locating only one copy of the 1614 edition and one copy of the 1615 edition. Our search of the auction records reveals no copies having come to auction. A quite scarce, and indeed perhaps even RARE, copy of this work by an important and notable 17th Century Churchman treating one of the most famous passages of the Christian Scriptures. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

      Paris: Julian Bertault, 1615. First edition thus. LARGE PAPER COPY, ruled in red. Folio (423 x 273 mm) bound in original French red morocco "aux armes," elaborately gold tooled ornamental sprays at corners (hinges and corners worn), all edges gilt; text somewhat browned). Pagination: [28], 1158, [18], 52, [42] pp. Collation: a6 e8 A-5D6 5E-5F4 [para]4 2A-2F4 2G2 a-c6 d4 = COMPLETE. Bertault's large printer's device on title-page. Endleaves: Nicolas Le Be, of Troy. First Edition as edited by Jean Bourdelot, considered by George Crabb (Universal Historical Dictionary) to have been THE BEST OF ALL EARLY EDITIONS, beautifully printed in Latin and Greek, with copious notes. Ours is one of the rare copies printed on LARGE PAPER (42 x 27 cm, compared to ordinary copies which generally measure 35 x 21 cm). Copies on Large Paper were known to both Dibdin and Moss, both of whom were unable to actually examine one. Ours comes from the famous library of the Earl of Sunderland (sold at Sotheby's, Bibliotheca Sunderlandiana, 3rd Portion, 26 July 1882 lot 7657, to Grevel for £3.15.0) where is was described "aux armes" but not identified. These may be described thusly: une aigle au vol abaisse, surmontant une croix ancree, fixant au canton dextre un soleil accostee de deux croissants affrontes. * "A well printed, and accurate edition, compiled by the Editor, when a young man, and does very great credit to his critical abilities; besides the notes of Bourdelot, which are very concise and chiefly critical; it contains some by Micyllus, Guerinus, Marcilius, and Cognatus. It is very highly and justly esteemed by critics" (SOURCE: Moss vol. II, p. 262). See also Hoffmann vol. II, p. 537 and Dibdin vol. II, p. 57 (calling this a "very elegant and respectable" edition). F. van der Haeghen, Bibliotheca Erasmiana, ser. 2, p. 41. * We have seen an almost identical binding, with the same arms, and employing the same tools, in the (unique?) 1903 catalogue of the bindings collected by Robert James Sells at Tunbridge Wells.

        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. BrantÂ’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 MoretusÂ’ 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-lawÂ’s brother and transcribes his epitaph. Even Balthasar Moretus contributes an epigram in honor of the deceased . In the fourth section, RubensÂ’ 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.

      Antwerp: Petrus & Joannes Bellerus, 1615 - Octavo (162 × 102 mm). Modern vellum to style, tan morocco label. Ex-British Library copy, "British Museum Sale Duplicate 1787", ink-stamp verso of the title page only, light browning, occasional cropping of the shoulder-notes in the prefatory matter, and into the running titles of the text, but a very good copy. Woodcut printer's device on title, woodcut initials. Second Latin edition of this relation concerning the Jesuit mission to Japan during the years 1609 and 1610, the first Italian edition was published by Bartolomeo Zanetti in Rome, 1615, and the first Latin edition, translated by Halloix, appeared in Douai, 1615. The report was addressed to the Superior General of the order, Claudio Acquaviva (1543-1615) by Padre João Rodrigues Girão, or Giram (1558-1633), who "entered the Society of Jesus on in 1576, and in 1583 began his missionary labours in Japan. His work was facilitated by his winning the esteem of the Emperor Taicosama. He studied the Japanese language ardently, and is particularly known for his efforts to make it accessible to the Western nations. His Japanese grammar ranks among the important linguistic productions of the Jesuit missionaries. Published at Nagasaki in 1604 under the title Arte da lingoa de Japam" (Catholic Encyclopaedia). Rodrigues Girão was responsible for a number of similar letters, down to that for 1626. Acquaviva presided over the stabilization of the Jesuit missions in India and Japan, and expansions into China, and the Americas, but the situation in Japan was to change drastically with the elevation of Tokugawa Iemitsu to the shogunate. Uncommon, with just two copies in Germany, two in the Netherlands, and one copy in the United States, at Rutgers. Cordier, Japonica, 268; Alt-Japan-Katalog 1311; De Backer & Sommervogel VI, 1972, 7.

        Vue de la Nouvelle Yorck (Collection des Prospects)

      Augsburg: L'Academie Imperiale d'Empire des Arts Libereaux. unbound. very good. Lazelt, Balth. Frederic. Engraved view of New York with modern hand coloring. Image measures 12" x 15.5". An "optic view" print originally meant to be projected and seen through optic viewing device (therefore, the title printed on the page is backwards). Includes a description in both German and French which loosely translates to: "New York, a city in North America on the Island named Manhattan at the mouth of the Hudson River, which was first settled by the Dutch in 1615 and called New Amsterdam. In 1666 it was taken over by the British and named New York." Although the print is clearly entitled "New York", it was common practice in the eighteenth century to present stock prints of European cities as whatever subject was sought. It is unclear if this particular piece is in fact a view of New York, or of another city.

        HEURES DU ROY LOYS XIII. [bound with] FORMULAIRE DE CONFESSION POUR CEUX QUI FREQUENTENT LES SACREMENTS

Refined contemporary reddish-brown armorial morocco, gilt, covers with border formed by double gilt rules enclosed by dotted rolls, oblique fleuron cornerpieces, center panel with "CHV" (or "GHV") cipher at corners and central oval containing two linked "V's" surrounded by four "S" fermé characters; flat spine with panelling similar to that on the cover, remnants of ribbon ties, all edges gilt; spine expertly rebacked with original spine laid down, tips of corners carefully renewed. With 23 Illustrations, comprised of engraved title page with elaborate frame, 12 emblematic illustrations of saints preceding each month of the calendar, and 10 full-page copperplate engravings. First volume printed in black and red. Front pastedown with "HB" bookplate of collector Heribert Boeder. Very light rubbing to joints and extremities, otherwise a fine copy with only trivial imperfections internally and with the expertly restored binding lustrous and showing little wear. This is the scarce sole edition of a Book of Hours prepared for the use of Louis XIII, arranged by His Majesty and codified by his confessor, the celebrated Jesuit, Pierre Coton (1564-1626), offered here in a tastefully understated monogrammed period binding. The calendar leaves are attractively illustrated with circular engravings of major saints whose feast days fall within the individual months (and with zodiacal signs in the corners of the square that encloses each circle). The Offices for the days of the week follow, with the Trinity celebrated on Sunday, the Holy Spirit on Monday, Guardian Angels on Tuesday, the French king Saint Louis on Wednesday, the Holy Sacrament on Thursday, Saints Cosmas and Damian on Friday, and the Blessed Virgin Mary on Saturday, each preceded by a full-page engraving. For two years prior to Henry IV's assassination, Coton had been confessor to the Dauphin, and he continued in this capacity when young Louis ascended to the throne. The second part of our volume provides Coton's forms of confession for those who attend the sacrament. We have been unable to determine the owners whose monograms are on the covers; those owners are similarly unidentified in the Sotheby's auction catalogue for the 21 November 1989 sale, when this volume sold for a hammer price of £850.

Contemporary ownership signature on the lower title page. The text is in Latin. The work contains 12 texts of different authors whose titles are sufficiently significant by their disrespectful characters The text is written in Latin and not in vulgar language, while in fact it is a a violent satire against the learned ones and church, (which it did not fool as it placed the book in its index of the prohibited books). Wikipedia: "Frischlin was educated as a scholar of "Tübinger Stift" at the university of Tübingen, where in 1568 he was promoted to the chair of poetry and history. In 1575 for his comedy of Rebecca, which he read at Regensburg before the emperor Maximilian II, he was rewarded with the laureateship, and in 1577 he was made an imperial count palatine (Comes palatinus Caesareus) or Pfalzgraf. In 1582 his unguarded language and reckless life made it necessary that he should leave Tübingen, and he accepted a mastership at Laibach in Carniola (nowadays Ljubljana in Slovenia), which he held for about two years. Shortly after his return to the university in 1584, he was threatened with a criminal prosecution on a charge of immoral conduct, and the threat led to his withdrawal to Frankfurt am Main in 1587. For eighteen months he taught in the Brunswick gymnasium, and he appears also to have resided occasionally at Strasbourg, Marburg and Mainz. From the last-named city he wrote certain libelous letters, which led to his being arrested in March 1590. He was imprisoned in the fortress of Hohenurach, near Reutlingen, where, on the night of the 29th of November 1590, he was killed by a fall in attempting to let himself down from the window of his cell. This a study of comparative religion, with a discussion of the myths of the Algonkins, Iroquois, the Aztecs, and the Mayans as well as a discussions of hero myths in general.

HERE IS THE NET INFORMATION: handbooks compiled for training the army of the Dutch Stadhouder, Prince Maurice of Orange (1567-1625), one of the greatest commanders of the time who re-established discipline and perfected instruction. While serving Prince Maurice the author founded a military school at Siegen in Westphalia thought to be the earliest in Europe. I: French translation of Kriegskunst zu Fuß (Oppenheim 1615), a handbook on infantry tactics which Jähns rates as the most important work on the subject to appear before the Thirty Years' War. It is divided into 4 parts treating: the exercise of the musket and pike, infantry drill as practised under the command of Prince Maurice of Orange (to whom this edition is dedicated), battle orders, and guard duty based on Hungarian regimental models. The finely engraved plates, thought to be by Johann Theodor de Bry, show details of arms and armour, musket and pike drill positions, formation drill (the author recommends round formations for defence against cavalry), intricate battle orders for units of varying sizes, encampments, and billeting in towns. A few plates are browned, but the majority are very well preserved. With contemporary ownership manuscript entry 'Canutus Johann Kurk' in tailend blank margin of title. Jähns 1035-42; Lipperheide Qb30 (note). II: French version of Kriegskunst zu Pferdt (Frankfurt 1616), one of the earliest handbooks on cavalry tactics to contain precise instructions (see similar works by Basta and Melzo in this catalogue). The translation, thought to be by Johann Theodor de Bry, was first published in 1616. The delicately engraved, attractive plates rep.

        Selva de aventuras. Compuesta por Geronymo de Contreras Coronista de su Magestad. Va repartida en siete libros, los cuales tratan de unos estremados amores que un cavallero de Sevilla llamado Luzman tuvo con una hermosa donzella llamada Arbolea y las grandes cosas que le sucedieron en diez años que anduuo peregrinando por el mundo, y el fin que tuvieron sus amores.

      por Pedro Cabarte a costa de Iuan Dalmau Impressor de Libros,, Zaragoza: 1615 - 4 hojas, 116 folios (mal numerados 104). Encuadernación original en pergamino con el título rotulado en el lomo. Un punto de polilla afecta mínimamente una letra en las primeras hojas y la portada con alguna suciedad muy discreta, por lo demás magnífico ejemplar en su estado completamente jenuíno. Jiménez Catalán 152. Palau 60785 nota. Eisenberg, Bibliografía de los libros de caballerías castellanos, página 425. Lucía Megías, Imprenta y libros de caballerías, página 101. J. K. Gardner, The Life and Works of Jerónimo de Contreras, Ann Arbor, 1985. Poco se sabe sobre este escritor, cuya biografía ha intentado reconstruir J. K. Gardner. Capitán y cronista de Felipe II, obtuvo una pensión en Nápoles en 1560. En 1573 se hallaba en Zaragoza, donde data su libro de caballerías inédito Don Polismán de Nápoles, y allí publica el Dechado de varios subjetos (1572), obra en prosa y verso, con sencilla trama alegórica, refundición del Vergel de varios triunfos, manuscrito fechado en Nápoles en 1570. Su obra más famosa fue la que ofrecemos, publicada por vez primera en Barcelona, 1565, en siete libros, refundida y ampliada en nueve en la siguiente de Alcalá, 1583. La obra es una curiosa mezcla de estilos narrativos, pues comienza por la declaración del amor de Luzmán a Arbolea, en recuerdo de los amores del Abindarráez morisco, salpicados con interpolaciones poéticas pastoriles, cuya frustación, sin embargo, impulsa al peregrinaje de su protagonista -muy del gusto de la tradición bizantina y alegórica- por el extranjero, y termina en un largo cautiverio en Argel, del que logra zafarse después, para regresar a Sevilla, hallar a Arbolea convertida en monja, y acabar su vida, a su vez, en un monasterio.La obra tiene una gran similitud con la Historia de los amores de Clareo y Florisa, de 1522, de Núñez de Reinoso. Fue obra de gran popularidad, y según Menéndez y Pelayo próximo antecedente de El peregrino en su patria de Lope de Vega.
