Botero, Giovanni:
Rome: Giacomo Mascardi, 1615.. 16pp. 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 ear … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAZELT, Balth. Frederic
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.

The author, a native of Lisbon, had evident oratorical talent at a rather early age: when he lectured at Coimbra soon after receiving his degrees there, his college audiences were held in rapt silence for as long as he spoke. After a dozen years as a royal preacher he left for Rome in 1585, where his skill was compared with that of Francisco Panigarola, Bishop of Asti. In 1590, when the Pope named him archdeacon of Villa Nova de Cerveira (archbishopric of Braga), he returned to Portugal, where he a … [Click Below for Full Description]
