        THE SECRETS OF ALEXIS: CONTAINING MANY EXCELLENT REMEDIES AGAINST DIVERS DISEASES, WOUNDS, AND OTHER ACCIDENTS.

      London, printed by William Stansby for Richard Meighen and Thomas Jones, 1615.With the maner to make Distillations, Parfumes, Confitures, Dyings, Colours, Fusions, and Meltings. A worke well approuved, very necessarie for every man. Newly corrected and amended, and also somewhat more enlarged in certaine places, which wanted in the former editions. TEXT IN ENGLISH, Early English edition, in 5 parts in 1 volume, 1615. 8vo, 185 x 125 mm, 7¼ x 5 inches, some decorated initials and headpieces, printer's device on 2nd, 3rd and 4th title pages, leaves (12), 348, (14), printed mainly in black letter, bound in modern full blind - panelled calf, raised bands and gilt lettered morocco label to spine. Old ink name and address on original front endpaper, first title page and first page of text slightly dusty, a few fore - edge margins trimmed slightly, occasionally shaving the side notes, a few pages slightly age - browned, occasional small light stain, intermittent pale damp staining from leaf 140 to 208, dampstaining to lower margins from leaf 293 to 296, tiny hole in 1 leaf with loss of 2 letters, tiny wormhole in text from leaf 95 to 117, all still easily legible, 2 small wormholes at top of leaves 325 to the end of the volume, 1 sometimes affecting 1 letter in the first line of text, all still easily legible, tip of 1 top corner missing, small ink stroke in 1 margin together with 1 underlining. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. A translation by William Ward (parts 1 - 3) and Richard Androse (part 4) of a French version of Girolamo Ruscelli's famous Italian work "De? secreti del Reverendo Donno Alessio Piemontese", first published in Venice in 1555 in four parts. Our work is in five parts, parts 2 - 4 have separate dated title pages; the fifth part has a caption title; foliation and register are continuous. The title pages to the second, third and fourth parts bear the imprint "Printed at London by W. Stansby, anno Dom. 1614." The first three parts were first published separately in English translation, beginning in 1559 and the four parts were first published together in English in 1595. Our edition contains an additional fifth part attributed in the title to "Mayster Alexis of Piemont" but not found in the original Italian editions nor the English edition of 1595. It is generally assumed that Alessio Piemontese was a pseudonym of Girolamo Ruscelli (1500 - 1566), Italian humanist and cartographer. In a later work, Ruscelli reported that the Secreti contained the experimental results of an ?Academy of Secrets? that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelli?s academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. His book is one of the earliest and most popular of the Books of Secrets that appeared in the 16th century. It ran into over one hundred editions and was translated into Latin, French, English, German, Spanish and Polish. It contained hundreds of medical recipes including against the plague and treating putrefying wounds, plus numerous household hints including recipes for removing stains, and many technical recipes on metallurgy, gilding and silvering, alchemy, dyeing, making perfume and cosmetics.

        THE ANNALES, OR GENERALL CHRONICLE OF ENGLAND, begun first by maister John Stow, and after him continued and augmented with matters forreyne, and domestique, auncient and moderne, unto the end of this present yeere 1614, by Edmond Howes, gentleman.

      London, printed by Thomas Dawson for Thomas Adams, 1615.This is the first edition to include Howes augmentations, WITH A VERY EARLY MENTION OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, and the appendix on London University with separate title - page. 1615, printer's name from colophon, folio in sixes, approximately 325 x 210 mm, 12¾ x 8¼ inches, elaborate engraved architectural title page with King James at the top in the centre with his arms below, with Queen Anne and Prince Charles on either side and below a Dane, a Roman, a Saxon and a Norman, woodcut head - and tailpieces and large and small historiated initials, printed in black letter on 2 columns, pages: [20], 430, 432 - 576, 578 - 815, [1], 816 - 957, [4], 961 - 968, 967 - 988, [30] - index and colophon, lacking a blank leaf before the title page and another after the Dedication, collated and guaranteed complete otherwise, bound in full modern blind panelled calf, raised bands to spine, blind ornament in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label. Upper margin of title page trimmed off, slight damage to inner margin with 1 small repaired tear just affecting edge of image with no loss but with a small brown mark left by old tape, 2 tiny holes repaired neatly on reverse and not visible on recto, occasional light spotting or light staining, mainly to margins, mostly very clean, 1 small closed tear to lower edge of 1 page, neatly repaired with no loss of text. A very good complete copy with an early mention of Shakepeare. John Stow (1524 / 5?1605), antiquarian and historian was born in London in a well - to - do family of tallow - chandlers but nothing is known of his education. Nevertheless, he wrote English with fluency and clarity, had a good command of Latin, and possessed an extraordinary knowledge of English history and literature. He built up a large library of manuscripts and antiquarian books. His interests included chronicles, charters, ecclesiastical and municipal records, wills, literary works, and learned treatises. He was acquainted with many Renaissance humanist scholars such as John Dee, William Camden, Archbishop Matthew Parker, and Henry Savile. When he joined the Society of Antiquaries some time after its foundation in 1586, he was the only member who was not a gentleman. The Annales was first published in 1580 with the title Chronicles of England from Brute (the legendary first king of Britain). With the edition of 1605 Stow continued the history to the accession of James I. Our edition augmented and expanded by Edmund Howes reaches 1614. To Stow's brief Appendix on the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge is added a 26 page account of the colleges of London University by Sir George Buck. It is believed that Stow was the first English historian to make systematic use of public records for the purpose of his work and that by this research he did more to advance the study of fifteenth - century England than any other writer of his time. In the emendation by Edmund Howes on page 811 there is A MENTION OF SHAKESPEARE: "Our modern, and present excellent Poets which worthily flourish in their own works, and all of them in my own knowledge lived together in this Queen?s reign, according to their priorities as near as I could, I have orderly set down (viz) George Gascoigne Esquire, Thomas Churchyard Esquire, Sir Edward Dyer Knight, Edmund Spencer Esquire, Sir Philip Sidney Knight, Sir John Harrington Knight, Sir Thomas Challoner Knight, Sir Francis Bacon Knight, & Sir John Davie Knight, Master John Lillie gentleman, Master George Chapman gentleman, M.W. Warner gentleman, M. Willi. Shakespeare gentleman," (and others). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

Sa positionde chroniqueur royal lui a permis de consulter de nombreuses sources aujourd'hui disparues mêmes'il a pu à l'occasion s'inspirer largement des travaux de ses prédécesseurs,principalement de Bartolomé de Las Casas. Il fit preuve de beaucoup de prudence dans l'utilisation des divers documents mis à sadisposition et le résultat de ses recherches est dans l'ensemble précis et précieux pourl'étude d'une part de l'histoire des premières colonies espagnoles mais aussi desinstitutions et coutumes des peuples américains autochtones.

He built up a large library of manuscripts and antiquarian books. His interests included chronicles, charters, ecclesiastical and municipal records, wills, literary works, and learned treatises. He was acquainted with many Renaissance humanist scholars such as John Dee, William Camden, Archbishop Matthew Parker, and Henry Savile. When he joined the Society of Antiquaries some time after its foundation in 1586, he was the only member who was not a gentleman. The Annales was first published in 1580 with the title Chronicles of England from Brute (the legendary first king of Britain). With the edition of 1605 Stow continued the history to the accession of James I. Our edition augmented and expanded by Edmund Howes reaches 1614. To Stow's brief Appendix on the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge is added a 26 page account of the colleges of London University by Sir George Buck. It is believed that Stow was the first English historian to make systematic use of public records for the purpose of his work and that by this research he did more to advance the study of fifteenth-century England than any other writer of his time. In the emendation by Edmund Howes on page 811 there is A MENTION OF SHAKESPEARE: "Our modern, and present excellent Poets which worthily flourish in their own works, and all of them in my own knowledge lived together in this Queen’s reign, according to their priorities as near as I could, I have orderly set down (viz) George Gascoigne Esquire, Thomas Churchyard Esquire, Sir Edward Dyer Knight, Edmund Spencer Esquire, Sir Philip Sidney Knight, Sir John Harrington Knight, Sir Thomas Challoner Knight, Sir Francis Bacon Knight, & Sir John Davie Knight, Master John Lillie gentleman, Master George Chapman gentleman, M.W. Warner gentleman, M. Willi. Shakespeare gentleman," (and others). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

      Antwerp: Petrus & Joannes Bellerus,, 1615. Antwerp: Petrus & Joannes Bellerus,, 1615. Ex italicis Latinae factae ab And. Schotto. Octavo (162 × 102 mm) Modern vellum to style, tan morocco label. Woodcut printer's device on title, woodcut initials. 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. 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.

Er hatte die Rolle des Grossinquisitors im Häresieprozess gegen Giordano Bruno ubernommen. In Rom hatte Bellarmin Galileo Galilei kennengelernt, den er als Naturwissenschaftler aber auch als gläubigen Christen schätzte. Als Berater des Papstes war er es, der Galilei die Haltung des Vatikans deutlich zu machen hatte.

In-8, plein maroquin olive, dos a nerf richement orne de caissons cloisonnes et fleuronnes, double piece de titre de maroquin havane, triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats, filet sur les coupes, dentelle interieure, tranches dorees, protege sous etui de cartonnage marbre (rel. ca 1770 "Derome Le jeune"), (1) f., (22), 336 p. et (8) f. d'index et errata, bandeau, lettrines et culs de lampe Edition originale du premier des deux ouvrages que Vanini publia et qui lui valurent d'etre arrete, juge et brule vif a l'age de 34 ans. Sous le voile d'une interpretation des mysteres de la Providence, "en puisant aux sources cachees de la philosophie", l'ouvrage trompa un court moment les censeurs de la Sorbonne qui lui octroyerent leur approbation. Veritable brulot, ce livre est de ceux qui ont contribue a jeter les bases de la philosophie moderne. "Habilete dialectique, force de denigrement, independance vis-a-vis de ses maitres, connaissance etendue des systemes les plus divers, malice enfin. 'L'Amphitheatrum' constitue un document inestimable" (A. Levi, in: 'Encyclopedia Universalis'). Ne pres de Naples, Vanini etudia la theologie, la, medecine, le droit et la philosophie en Italie; il entra dans les ordres et parcourut l'Europe en propageant une doctrine qui evolua vers l'atheisme. Venu a Paris, puis a Toulouse pour y continuer son enseignement, il y fut arrete. Convaincu d'atheisme, de blaspheme et de sorcellerie mais aussi d'homosexualite et de corruption de moeurs, il fut condamne a avoir la langue tranchee et a etre brule, le 9 fevrier 1619, sur la place du Salin a Toulouse; ses cendres furent jetees au vent. L'ouvrage fut poursuivi et detruit, "rarissime" selon Dorbon. (Peignot, 'Livres condamnes', II, 174. Caillet, 11028. Dorbon, 5060. Brunet, V, 1075. Wellcome, 6485). Provenances: baron de Caule, avec ex-libris ancien grave. Bibliotheque de la demeure d'Auchincruive en Ecosse et "Mortimer L. Schiff" avec son ex-libris dore sur cuir. Petite restauration de papier au f. 9. Quelques rousseurs. Tres bel exemplaire dans une reliure de maroquin olive de Nicolas-Denis Derome dit "Derome jeune", le plus celebre representant de la dynastie des relieurs, avec sa petite etiquette imprimee: "Relie par Derome le Jeune rue St Jacques au-dessus de St Benoist"..

        THE SECRETS OF ALEXIS: CONTAINING MANY EXCELLENT REMEDIES AGAINST DIVERS DISEASES, WOUNDS, AND OTHER ACCIDENTS

      London, printed by William Stansby for Richard Meighen and Thomas Jones, 1615.: . London, printed by William Stansby for Richard Meighen and Thomas Jones, 1615.. With the maner to make Distillations, Parfumes, Confitures, Dyings, Colours, Fusions, and Meltings. A worke well approuved, very necessarie for every man. Newly corrected and amended, and also somewhat more enlarged in certaine places, which wanted in the former editions. TEXT IN ENGLISH, Early English edition, in 5 parts in 1 volume, 1615. 8vo, 185 x 125 mm, 7¼ x 5 inches, some decorated initials and headpieces, printer's device on 2nd, 3rd and 4th title pages, leaves (12), 348, (14), printed mainly in black letter, bound in modern full blind-panelled calf, raised bands and gilt lettered morocco label to spine. Old ink name and address on original front endpaper, first title page and first page of text slightly dusty, a few fore-edge margins trimmed slightly, occasionally shaving the side notes, a few pages slightly age-browned, occasional small light stain, intermittent pale damp staining from leaf 140 to 208, dampstaining to lower margins from leaf 293 to 296, tiny hole in 1 leaf with loss of 2 letters, tiny wormhole in text from leaf 95 to 117, all still easily legible, 2 small wormholes at top of leaves 325 to the end of the volume, 1 sometimes affecting 1 letter in the first line of text, all still easily legible, tip of 1 top corner missing, small ink stroke in 1 margin together with 1 underlining. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. A translation by William Ward (parts 1-3) and Richard Androse (part 4) of a French version of Girolamo Ruscelli's famous Italian work "De’ secreti del Reverendo Donno Alessio Piemontese", first published in Venice in 1555 in four parts. Our work is in five parts, parts 2-4 have separate dated title pages; the fifth part has a caption title; foliation and register are continuous. The title pages to the second, third and fourth parts bear the imprint "Printed at London by W. Stansby, anno Dom. 1614." The first three parts were first published separately in English translation, beginning in 1559 and the four parts were first published together in English in 1595. Our edition contains an additional fifth part attributed in the title to "Mayster Alexis of Piemont" but not found in the original Italian editions nor the English edition of 1595. It is generally assumed that Alessio Piemontese was a pseudonym of Girolamo Ruscelli (1500 - 1566), Italian humanist and cartographer. In a later work, Ruscelli reported that the Secreti contained the experimental results of an ‘Academy of Secrets’ that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelli’s academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. His book is one of the earliest and most popular of the Books of Secrets that appeared in the 16th century. It ran into over one hundred editions and was translated into Latin, French, English, German, Spanish and Polish. It contained hundreds of medical recipes including against the plague and treating putrefying wounds, plus numerous household hints including recipes for removing stains, and many technical recipes on metallurgy, gilding and silvering, alchemy, dyeing, making perfume and cosmetics.

        La Vida, que Hizo el Siervo de Dios Gregorio Lopez, en algunos Lugares de esta Nueva Espana

      Early missionary work in New Spain. 1615. Lisbon. Pedro Crasbeeck. In 8vo (135 mm x 90 mm). 1 [blank] + 8 ff. 107 + 1 ff., missing two leaves at the beginning, text complete. Old vellum, soiled. Damp stained, some fraying to first and last leaves, early inscriptions on endpapers. Second edition ?published two years after the first, printed in 1613 in Mexico. This is the first obtainable edition, the first being virtually impossible to find. Lopez (1542 ? 1596) was a Spanish missionary and something of a mystery; he travelled to Mexico in 1562, making port at Veracruz at the age of twenty. Shortly after arriving, he left for Mexico City, where he worked for a while before completing his plans to travel to the Zacatecas region and live amongst the Chichimecos Indians. He became a hermit and spent his life amongst Mexican natives in different regions, under suspicion of heresy, apparently not attending Masses and religious services. Overall, Lopez? experiences become one of the earliest accounts of missionary work in New Spain. Little is known, and much is speculated regarding his early life in Spain, some saying he was a member of the nobility, "one of the most successful of the many early missionaries among the Indians, of New Spain, was born at Madrid, July 4th 1542, and is said to have been an illegitimate son of Charles V. or Philip II. At the age of twenty he landed at Vera Cruz, and soon after pitched his tent alone among the Chichimecos Indians. He died on the 20th of July, 1596, at Santa Fé, six miles from Mexico city, where he had been visited in his hermitage by all distinguished visitors to Mexico." (Maggs, 1922, 139). Losa?s account of Lopez? life arose considerable interest, with the work being reprinted several times in the 17th and 18th century centuries; all editions are scarce, this one particularly so, not in any public institution in Spain, neither the John Carter Brown, Palau deeming it of very rare. Medina, BHA 624. Palau, 142524 ("muy rara"). Sabin, 42575 (first edition), not mentioning this edition.

Binding tight and firm. A good copy of a scarce book on the military arts. The only copy we could locate in Italy was a second edition of 1616 in the Biblioteca Reale of Turin. Nothing seems to be known about the author other than that he was a military man who served many years in Flanders in the service of the Spanish king. Cockle, Military Books up to 1642, No. 625 states "Very rare"; not in the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part Ten, nor in Spaulding and Karpinski, Early Military Books.

        De Arithmetische en Geometrische fondamenten ... In veele verscheydene constighe question, soo geometrice door linien, als arithmetice door irrationale ghetallen, cock door den regel coss, ende de tafelen sinuum ghesolveert.Leiden: Joost van Colster and Jacob Marcus, 1615. First edition.

      First edition of this rare work, containing the best approximation to the value of &pi; achieved at that time.<br/><br/> "Van Ceulen was an indefatigable computer and concentrated on the computation of &pi; sometimes called Ludolph's number ... He became acquainted with Archimedes' <i>The measurement of the circle</i> ... Van Ceulen began to work in the spirit of Archimedes, computing the sides of more regular polygons inscribed within and circumscribed about a circle than Archimedes had and inventing a special short division for such computation ... In his <i>Arithmetische en Geometrische fondamenten</i> (1615), published by his widow, he reached thirty-three decimal places, always enclosing &pi; between an upper and a lower limit" (DSB). <br/><br/> Originally from Germany, Ceulen (1540-1610) spent most of his life in Holland and was one of the most important Dutch mathematicians of his time. His work on the calculation of &pi; shows him to have been "as expert in trigonometry as his contemporary Viète. In 1595 the two men competed in the solution of a forty-fifth degree equation proposed by Van Roomen in his <i>Ideae mathematicae</i> (1593) and recognized its relation to the expression of sin 45<i>A</i> in terms of sin <i>A</i>" (<i>ibid</i>.). Van Ceulen's influence continued through his pupil Willebrord Snel. "In his <i>Cyclometricus</i> (1621), [Snel] published Van Ceulen's final triumph: &pi; to thirty-five decimal places. This was inscribed on his tombstone in the Pieterskerk in Leiden" (<i>ibid</i>.)." Snel published a Latin translation of the present work in 1615, but it is haphazard and full of mistakes. <br/><br/> Bierens de Haan 839; DSB III: 181; Parkinson p. 56.. Folio (295 x 197 mm), pp. [iv], 271 [1:blank]. Contemporary flexible vellum.
