Commentate in lingua volgare toscana, da Giouanni Fabrini da Fighine, da Carlo Malatesta da Rimene, & da Filippo Venuti da Cortona.

Publius Vergilius Maro) è un poeta latino (n. presso Mantova, ad Andes, forse l'od. Pietole, 70 a. C. - m. Brindisi 19 a. C.). Per la vastità della fama e l'influsso esercitato sulla cultura latina e occidentale, è il principe dei poeti di Roma. I commentatori sono GIOVANNI FABBRINI, che nacque a Figline Valdarno (FI) nel 1516 e morì quasi sicuramente a Venezia intorno al 1580. L'anno seguente, 1581, uscì postuma la prima edizione del volgarizzamento dell'Eneide di Virgilio, di cui il F. aveva completato la versione dei primi sei libri già dal 1572, proseguendola poi fino al settimo compreso, e che fu terminato da Filippo Venuti da Cortona. FILIPPO VENUTI (Cortona, 1531 - Roma o Venezia, 1587) è stato un grammatico e linguista italiano. A Venezia, conobbe appunto l'altro umanista toscano, Giovanni Fabrini, con il quale formò un … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schliessbändern (3 v. 4 fehlen)., Deckel felckig u. m. kleinen Fehlstellen, Innen 20 Bl mit leichtem Wasserrand, min. stockfleckig. - Frühe Ausgaben sind sehr selten! Zuerst 1614 in Ingolstadt gedrucktes, dann vielfach aufgelegtes Werk. Die erste deutsche Ausgabe "Über die Lectüre, ihren Nutzen und die Vortheile sie gehörig anzuwenden" erschien 1832 in Karlsruhe. - Sacchini, Francesco (1570-1625) reformierte das pädagogische Konzept des Ordens. Neben der fachlichen u. religiöse Ausbildung der Lehrer war die Entwicklung der Persönlichkeit ebenso wichtig. Sacchini, der nach eigener Unterrichtstätigkeit lange Jahre Sekretär des Ordensgenerals Mutius Vitelleschi war, ergänzt die Anforderungen aus der »ratio studiorum«, die vor allem die religiöse und wissenschaftliche Qualifikation des Lehrers betont hatte: »Doch auch diese gründliche Kenntnis des Stoffes genügt noch nicht; es muß sich zu ihr die Erfahrung in der Lehrweise gesellen. Letztere ist eine eigentliche Wissenschaft und setzt große geistige Gewandtheit voraus; ja sie ist für die Schule von solcher Bedeutung, daß nicht selten ein wissenschaftlich weniger gebildeter Mann ein vorzüglicherer Lehrer ist, eben weil er diese Lehrmethode besser versteht.« Diese Lehrmethode besteht aber nicht in einer ausgefeilten Didaktik, wie sie die »ratio studiorum« mit ihren arbeitstechnischen Anweisungen für die einzelnen Gymnasialklassen durchaus kannte.

SAUTERIUS, DANIEL. [SAUTER]. - [VERY RARE EARLY WORK ON BANKRUPTCY]
Lugduni [Leiden], Basson, 1615. Small 8vo. In contemporary limp vellum with ink titling to spine in contemporary hand. Traces after a small paper label to lower part of spine. Small paper label pasted on to top left corner of pasted down front free end paper. A very fine and well preserved copy. 5, (7), 94, (1) pp. ¶ The exceedingly scarce first edition of Sauter's seminal work constituting one of the very earliest treatises on bankruptcy, preceeding Thomas Goodinge's "The law against the bankrupts" (1695) - regarded as being the first work in English on the subject - by more than half a century. The work became an immediate success, a second edition was published the same year, and translations into the vernaculars soon followed. This testifies to the appetite in contemporary Europe for a work that tackled the phenomenon of bankruptcy from an economic, juridical, and moral perspective. Sauter here describes that bankruptcy is a phenomenon on the rise and that the primary cause of this is negligent accounting, fraud and deception as the most frequent causes. His position was that the integrity of contracts would then be considered the ultimate foundation of civil society and public order: "[F]idelity in performance of Covenants and Promises is one main foundation of a well ordered Commonwealth. [...] If Bankrupts the Arch-builders of fraud, utterly subvert and take this away, as indeed they do, who doubteth but that the Commonwealth, unlesse prevention be in time used, will shortly be ruinated? [...] If the Bankrupts weaken and violate performance of fidelity [...] the Comm … [Click Below for Full Description]

BEAUFORT (Jean de).
1615 1Sans lieu, 1615. In-12 de 180 pp., cartonnage moderne. Témoignage sur les malversations des officiers de finance du Roy livré à l'occasion des Etats généraux de 1614 : le commis Jean de Beaufort, qui s'était déjà signalé sous Henri IV par sa lutte opiniâtre contre les détournements des financiers, donne ici non seulement de précises listes nominatives (comptables, commissaires, contrôleurs), mais aussi un ensemble de cotes ("de trois cens acquits faulx, montans six cens milliures, estans ès liasses de la Chambre, rapportez sur les comptes - pages 88-89). Montrant les conséquences dramatiques de cette corruption "publique" en France, Beaufort préconise la tenue d'une chambre de justice spéciale avec mission de faire rendre gorge aux financiers. Ce livre qui connut un immense retentissement tant chez les dénoncés qu'auprès du Parlement et des députés aux Etats suscita une polémique qui dura jusqu'en 1618, et provoqua des réponses de l'auteur.

ROSA SALVATORE
Severo Prothomastix, Amsterdam (i.e. Roma). Edizione probabilmente originale di questa opera di Salvator Rosa (Napoli, 21 luglio 1615 - Roma, 15 marzo 1673), pittore e poeta, stampata postuma a Roma verso il 1694. L'autore espone i suoi orientamenti nei campi artistico e filosofico articolando la dissertazione in sette satire: musica, poesia, pittura, guerra, Babilonia, invidia. Esistono diverse versioni stampate senza data e dallo stesso editore e risulta, pertanto, complicato stabilire quale sia quella originale. ICCU segnala, oltre alla presente, altre edizioni con gli stessi dati tipografici ma con diversa collazione: 1) 153, [3] (ultima carta bianca); 2) 144 p.; 3) 139, [5] (ultime due carte bianche); 4) 153, [3] p. (ultima carta con nota degli errori); 5)150, [6] p., [1] c. di tav. di ritratto (con data 1695).

Jacques Amyot, né le 30 octobre 1513 à Melun de parents de condition modeste, mort le 6 février 1593 à Auxerre, est un écrivain et traducteur de la Renaissance française. Il a trouvé sa voie vers l'université de Paris, où il s'était mis au service de riches étudiants pour subvenir à ses besoins. À dix-neuf ans il reçut le grade de maître ès arts à Paris, puis devint docteur en droit civil de l'Université de Bourges. Par l'intermédiaire de Jacques Colure (ou Colin), abbé de Saint-Ambroix à Bourges, il obtint d'être précepteur dans la famille d'un secrétaire d'État. Par ce secrétaire il fut recommandé à Marguerite de Valois, et grâce à elle il devint professeur de latin et de grec à Bourges. Il traduisit Théagène et Charidée, d'Héliodore (1547), et en fut récompensé par le roi de France François Ier par le bénéfice de l'abbaye de Bellozane. Il fut alors en mesure de se rendre en Italie pour étudier le texte de Plutarque conservé au Vatican. Il s'attela à la traduction des Vies parallèles des hommes illustres (1559-1565). En chemin il bifurqua, étant chargé d'une mission pour le concile de Trente. Rentré en France, il fut nommé précepteur des fils d'Henri II, par l'un desquels (Charles IX) il fut nommé grand aumonier (1561) et par l'autre (Henri III) commandeur de l'Ordre du Saint-Esprit.

A 12th-century Cypriot from a noble family, Limbania supposedly fled her home at the age of twelve to avoid a forced marriage. Several miracles brought her to her final home in Genoa: protected in the wilds of Cyprus by wild animals, she was saved from abandonment when the Genoese ship that had broken its promise to transport her was miraculously becalmed and forced to turn back to retrieve her. Arriving in Genoa, a sudden storm threatened shipwreck onto the rocks near the Convent of San Tommaso. Realizing that she had arrived at her destination, Limbania bade the crew farewell, and divine aid carried the ship to its usual anchorage. The earliest known record of her legend dates to 1294, mentioning the veneration of … [Click Below for Full Description]

A 12th-century Cypriot from a noble family, Limbania supposedly fled her home at the age of twelve to avoid a forced marriage. Several miracles brought her to her final home in Genoa: protected in the wilds of Cyprus by wild animals, she was saved from abandonment when the Genoese ship that had broken its promise to transport her was miraculously becalmed and forced to turn back to retrieve her. Arriving in Genoa, a sudden storm threatened shipwreck onto the rocks near the Convent of San Tommaso. Realizing that she had arrived at her destination, Limbania bade the crew farewell, and divine aid carried the ship to its usual anchorage. The earliest known record of her legend dates to 1294, mentioning the veneration of … [Click Below for Full Description]

VANINI GIULIO CESARE.
1615. In-8°; 12 cc., 336 pp., 4 cc. Buona legatura coeva in tutta pergamena morbida, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Ottimo esemplare, assai genuino, proveniente dalla celebre biblioteca di Richard Heber (1773-1833), ex libris al contropiatto posteriore, antiche firme di possesso al contropiatto anteriore. Prima edizione. Nato nel 1586, il Vanini, studiò a Padova dove si dichiarò discepolo del Pomponazzi e del Cardano. Dopo aver viaggiato in diverse parti d'Europa fu arrestato a Tolosa come mago ed ateo e condannato al taglio della lingua ed al supplizio, avvenuto il 19 febbraio 1618. Durante la sua vita ed in quest'opera in particolare, che è la sua principale, Vanini cercò le prove dell'esistenza di Dio non nelle sacre scritture, ma nelle sorgenti stesse della filosofia. Come Giordano Bruno cercò di conciliare la divinità con la filosofia naturale e per questo fu condannato. Può essere considerato a pieno titolo uno dei padri della filosofia moderna. Opera assai rara perché le copie furono in massima parte distrutte. First edition. Born in 1586, Vanini studied in Padua and declared himself a follower of Pomponazzi and Cardano. After he had travelled throughout Europe, he was arrested in Toulouse as sorcerer and atheist and condemned to supplice and tongue cutting out. The punishment was inflicted on 19 February 1618. For all his life (especially in the Amphitheatrum, his major work), Vanini tried to prove God's existence not via the Holy Scriptures, but only with the help of philosophy and occultism. Like Giordano Bruno, his attempt to reconcile divinity and natural science … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bayern - -
Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. 404 Bll. Schweinslederband d. Zt. auf Pp. Folio. Erschien gedruckt erst 1803 unter dem Titel "Der Landtag im Herzogthum Baiern vom Jahre 1612: aus authentischen Handschriften gesammelt", herausgegeben von dem bayerischen Staatsmann und Historiker Franz von Krenner (1762-1819); hier vorliegend also die originale Handschrift, die Krenner mit unwesentlichen Änderungen wortgetreu übernahm! - Der Anlass für die Einberufung des Landtags war für den Kurfürsten Maximilian, "die Rechte der bayerischen Landschaftsversammlung als nicht autogen und originärm sondern als delegiert, von der landesherrlichen Gewalt abgeleitet zu behaupten. Daß diese Behauptung von den Landständen schließlich ohne Widerspruch hingenommen wurde, war das wichtigste Ergebnis des Landtags von 1612". (Dieter Albrecht: Maximilian I. von Bayern 1573-1651, München 1996, S. 228). - Zum ganzen Komplex auch Katrin Ellen Kummer, Landstände und Landschaftsverordnung unter Maximilian I. von Bayern (1598-1651), Berlin 2005, S. 50 - 60. - - - Einband bestoßen, Decken etwas gewölbt und fleckig, Rücken ursprünglich gekalkt. Titelblatt fleckig und mit Randschäden, der Text sonst nur wenig fleckig und kleineren Altersspuren. [4 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

Lyon, Veuve d'Antoine de Harsy, 1615. 1 vol. petit in-8°, maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné de fleurons et de filets dorés, pièce de titre en maroquin vert, encadrement d'un entre-deux doré et d'une dentelle dorée aux petits fers, roulette dorée sur les coupes, roulette dorée intérieure, tranches dorées. Reliure de la fin du XVIIIe s., mors légèrement épidermés. Ex-libris au contreplat de Henry B. H. Beaufroy. (12) ff., 336 pp., (4) ff. d'index. Signatures : +8 ++4 [A-X]8 Y4. Annotations marginales du XVIIIe s. en latin et en français, coupées par endroit à la reliure. Quelques rousseurs. Edition originale fort rare de ce célèbre ouvrage du philosophe athée Lucilio Vanini. Après un parcours aventureux et erratique en Italie où il avait été tour à tour catholique et athée, Vanini publia à Lyon ce livre d'allure très orthodoxe muni d'approbations civiles et ecclésiastiques, certainement dans l'espoir de rentrer en grâce auprès des autorités ecclésiastiques. Il s'y propose d'y éclairer les mystères de la Providence en puisant aux sources cachées de la philosophie et de réfuter l'athéisme et les doctrines philosophiques condamnées par l'Eglise. Cependant, il y exposait les objections des athées avec une telle force que l'attention des lecteurs était plutôt attirée par celles-ci que par l'argumentation catholique. L'année suivante, Vanini publia un ouvrage encore plus clairement hétérodoxe : le De Admirandis naturae. Arrêté à Toulouse, il fut condamné à être brûlé vif après avoir eu la langue tranchée, et ses livres furent condamnées à la destruction. Son supplice est resté, dans … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ignatius, of Loyola Saint - Claudio Acquaviva - Jesuits. - Collegio romano,
Romae : In Collegio Romano eiusdem Societatis, anno Domini, 1615. In-8° relié plein vélin de l'époque, [8] 396 pages. Ouvrage qui suit d'une année l'affaire (qui durera 150 ans et conduira à l'expulsion des jésuites de tous les pays ou presque d'Europe. En 1614, un jésuite polonais, chassé de sa congrégation, publie pour se venger le livret Monita secreta societatis Jesu, un faux livre d'instructions aux jésuites sur la manière de se comporter pour augmenter le pouvoir et les richesses de la Compagnie. Ce mythe imprègne les esprits, et notamment les esprits libéraux des xviiie et xixe siècles. En 1704 et 1742, à la suite de la Querelle des rites, le Pape interdit les prétendus « rites chinois » que les missionnaires jésuites tolèrent en Chine parce qu'ils les estiment relever davantage de croyances sociales et familiales que véritablement religieuses. En France, les jésuites subissent les attaques des jansénistes, gallicans et parlementaires, puis des philosophes de l'Encyclopédie auxquels ils répondent avec leur Journal de Trévoux et leur Dictionnaire de Trévoux. L'« affaire Lavalette » (scandale financier à la suite de la banqueroute du jésuite Antoine Lavalette) constitue une bonne occasion pour Louis XV d'interdire par décision royale la Compagnie et de la bannir de France en 1763-64, ses deux cents collèges étant alors fermés. Déjà chassés du Portugal en 1759, ils le sont encore d'Espagne en 1767 et du duché de Parme et de Plaisance en 1768. Cependant, le roi Stanislas, avant 1766, les accueille dans son duché de Lorraine, resté théoriquement indépendant du royaume de … [Click Below for Full Description]

DAL MONTE, Guidobaldo
Apud Evangelistam Deuchinum, 1615. In -4°; mezza pergamena; cc. (4) + 104 + cb. Numerose illustrazioni nel testo. Frontespizio rifoderato con fori marginali di tarlo che si estendono alle prime quattro pagine (non incidono sul testo, così come gli strappetti sugli angoli); le prime pagine piuttosto abrase. Il pesarese Guidobaldo Del Monte (1545-1607), matematico, scienziato e astronomo, fu tra i più importanti sostenitori di Galileo: proprio grazie a Dal Monte, che lo segnalò al proprio fratello Cardinale, Galilei ottenne nel '29 la cattedra universitaria di matematica all'Università di Pisa. La prima edizione di questo trattato di meccanica del 1577 fu considerata il più importante trattato di statica dai tempi dell'antica Grecia. Restored title, marginally damaged by bookworms, as like the first six pages (text is not touched); first pages are not very fresh. Many illustrations framed in the text. Dal Monte (1545-1607) was a big supporter of Galileo; thanks to Dal Monte, who recommended him to his brother (a Cardinal), Galilei obtained it's first academic chair at Pisa university. The first edition of this work, in 1577, was considered the most important dissertation on statics, since ancient Greeks.

Gurmendi, Francisco de (transl.).
1615. 8vo. (8), 164 [recte: 160], (4) ff. Early 20th century half vellum with giltstamped red spine label and marbled blue boards. Edges sprinkled in red. First and only edition (not reprinted until 2004) of this rare and little-received example of the "education of princes" genre, translated into Spanish from an unknown Arabic source. "Francisco de Gurmendi learned Arabic in Madrid at the school of Marcos Dobelo, a Syrian who worked for a time as a translator of the 'plomos'. Gurmendi eventually achieved enough facility with the language to publish 'Doctrina phisica y moral de principes' (Madrid, 1615), a translation of an Arabic text" (A. K. Harris, From Muslim to Christian Granada [Baltimore 2007], p. 170). Recently, the work was the subject of a 2016 doctoral thesis at the University of Alicante: M. I. Llopis Mena, "Teoría política árabe y persa en la corte de Felipe III: la Doctrina Phísica y Moral de Príncipes de Francisco de Gurmendi". - Slight browning; paper flaws to title page (no loss to text). Exceedingly rare; not a single copy in auction records. Palau III, 433. OCLC 804490168.
