Haestens, Hendrik van.
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.

Albertus, Magnus, pseudo-, & Michael Scot.
Argentorati: Per Lazarum Zetznerum 16mo (11.7 cm, 4.6"). 390, [10 (9 index, 1 blank)] pp.. 1615 Conveniently compact early 17th-century printing of this gathering of medieval natural philosophy, medicine, and lore regarding women, sex, and reproduction, attributed at the time to St. Albertus Magnus but likely written by one of his disciples. Topics include the influence of the planets over the formation of the fetus, the signs of chastity and the loss thereof, and impediments to conception. The Secretis Mulierum is followed by De secretis naturae, which adds chapters on anatomy, menstruation, lactation, heat and frigidity in women, etc. Both works cite astrological and alchemical effects. This volume offers an early example of a very typical German style of paper with visible fiber inclusions, more commonly noted in the 18th century. WorldCat locates => only eight U.S. institutional holdings of this edition. Provenance: Front pastedown with early inked ownership inscription of yachtsman, mountaineer, and amateur scientist Captain M[arshall] Hall (1831–96), a Fellow of the Geological Society and one of the founders of the Mineralogical Society, as well as the organizer of the deep-sea dredging cruise of the "Norna" in 1870; title-page with partially shaved early inked inscription of James Casey. Contemporary vellum, spine with hand-inked title; vellum dust-soiled with chip to back joint, front free endpaper lacking. Front pastedown and title-page with inscriptions as above.

RASTELL, John
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.

Albertinus, Aegidius (Übers. und Bearb.). – (Mateo Alemàn).
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.

Buendía, José.
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.

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 after 1593 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 schola … [Click Below for Full Description]

Godinho, Nicolao
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frankfurt: Johannes Bringerus, 1615. ii); 3-8; 9-188; (viii) pages. Bound with ... SAXONY, Henry of. De Secretis Mulierum & MAGNUS, Albertus. Liber Aggregationis seu Liber Secretorum de Virtutibus Herbarum Lapidum & Animaluim quorundam (With an Appendix : De Horis Dierum & a second Appendix ... De Mirabilibus Mundi). x; 11-411 pages. Contemporary vellum. A pleasing tight copy with contemporary ink titles on spine, an early ownership inscription relating to a library 'ad SS. Petrum et Paulum' and bookplate testifying to the book's being a gift from a canon of Wratislava to the University Library of Freiburg in 1891. Michael Scot, born in Scotland about 1175, was the leading intellectual in Europe during the early 13th century. An alchemist, physician, astrologer and theologian, his insistence on experience, and allusions to experiments influenced the methods later used by Grosseteste and Roger Bacon. De Secretis Naturae is Scot's account of physiognomy, forming a third part to Liber introductorius and Liber Particularis. Its primary subject is human generation, conception and pregnancy. But there are also later sections on dreams and their significance, on auguries and sneezing, and finally on parts of the body, their differences and meanings. His work is bound with a substantial related text, De Secretis Mulierum, by a pupil of Albertus Magnus, the outstanding polymath of the later 13th century, and several texts of Albertus himself. First Edit. Hard Cover. Good. 12mo.

Braunschweig. - Vogelschau. - "Belagervng der Statt Bravnschweig". Braunschweig. - Vogelschau. - "Belagervng der Statt Bravnschweig". Historische Ortsansicht. Kupferstich, um 1615. Von Georg Keller. 20,6 x 26,7 cm (Darstellung) / 30,0 x 35,7 cm (Blatt). Innerhalb der Darstellung oben mittig betitelt. An weiteren Stellen sind die umliegenden Ortschaften, Tore, Gebäude der Stadt und Geschehnisse außerhalb beschriftet. - Die Darstellung zeigt aus der Vogelperspektive den Angriff und die dreimonatige Belagerung von Braunschweig durch den Fürsten Friedrich Ulrich von Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel (1591 - 1634). Der Fürst erbte von seinem Vater eine hohe Schuldenlast, die er durch die Erhebung von enormen Zahlungsforderung ausmerzen wollte. Diesen Forderungen wollte die Stadt Braunschweig nicht nachkommen, weswegen es zu diesem Konflikt im Sommer 1615 kam. Die Belagerung blieb aber erfolglos. In detaillierten Szenen innerhalb der Darstellung werden die Geschehnisse nachgebildet. - Ränder minimal gebräunt und geringfügig stockfleckig. Bugfalte verso mit Papierfalz versehen. Kleiner Rostfleck mittig innerhalb der Darstellung. Unter Kante minimal rissig. Herstellungsbedingte Quetschfalte parallel zur Bugfalte - unten beginnend bis ca. Blattmitte. Insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Georg Keller (1576 in Frankfurt am Main - 1640 in Nürnberg) war ein deutscher Kupferstecher, Radierer, Zeichner und Maler.

Chez Loys Elzevier, 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.
