        Pianta della citta di Riminio come si trova nel' ano MDCXVI

      1616. "Rara pianta della città inserita nel ""Raccolto istorico della fondazione di Rimino e vite de` Malatesti"" di Cesare Clementini, opera edita a Rimini nel 1617. Ispirandosi agli storici dei tempi antichi, l`autore descrive in questa corposa opera distinta in 15 parti ""generosi fatti di Casa Malatesta"" dominatori per tanti anni dell`""Inclita Rimino"" di cui narra l`origine, la grandezza, nonché l`importanza del suo territorio Nella pianta della città di Rimini disegnata da Alfonso Arrigoni e pubblicata nel 1617 nel «Raccolto istorico» di Cesare Clementini, è ben delineato il corso del canale dei Mulini che prende acqua dal Marecchia ed entra in Rimini vicino alla porta di Sant'Andrea la quale s'affaccia sull'antica via Aretina. Il corso del canale dei Mulini è documentato all'esterno della città nelle mappe contemporanee dell'Istituto Geografico Militare ed è schematicamente indicato entro le mura in una pianta del 1520 (Archivio di Stato di Rimini, «Carte Zanotti»). In maniera ovviamente approssimativa la pianta indica il percorso del canale dei Mulini che all'uscita dal mulino del Comune si divide in due corsi. L' esemplare si presenta rifilato al rame e montato su antico supporto di collezione, riquadrato, numerato e annotato ad inchiostro antico. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Molto rara. Ex collezione Giannalisa Feltrinelli. Conti - Pasini p. 32" Rimini Rimini Conti - Pasini p. 32 422 327

The author was a Dutch/Flemish Franciscan mystic and a brief account of him under the name Hendrik Herp is available on Wikipedia (he is given various names at different times and in different sources). This work was compiled as an anthology in 1538 and became quite successful despite being placed on the Index in 1559, the ban continuing rather erratically until the 1590s although other editions were issued. These were all in Latin, although a German edition is mentioned, with the present text apparently being the first French translation. It is also I think the first to contain an introductory interpretation of the Livre Second (possibly all of this two part text on pp.439-464, by Pierre Paul Philippe and Pierre Blomouenna, or perhaps only the latter's).

        India Orientalis

      1616. Carta geografiaca tratta dal "Tabularum Geographicarum contractarum" di Petrus Bertius, edizione latina del 1616. L'opera contiene 219 carte che illustrano questa nuova versione della geografia del Bertius, per la prima volta pubblicata nel 1600 con le carte di Barent Langenes e Cornelis Claesz. Le carte derivano dal grande Mercator/Hondius atlas, delle quali molte rappresentano una semplice riduzione. Incisione in rame, carta leggermente brunita, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. A superior rival to the pocket Ortelius atlas appeared about 1598, under the imprint of Barent Langenes and Cornelis Claesz. Claesz also published the Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum, edition with texy by Petrus Bertius, in 1600. After the death of Cornelis Claesz in 1609, Jodocus Hondius II became the new publisher of the work, composed by 7 parts in 1, with engraved title - page and 220 full - page engraved maps in text. All the maps were newly engraved and slightly larger in size, because Hondius was not able to acquire the original plates. With the new plates the work was definitely improved and enjoyed a growing demand of the public, which at that time had the choice between the Atlas Minor by Mercator and Bertius' Tabularum Geographicarum. The 219 plates, with the oval world map appearing twice, were produced to illustrate a new version of the geography of Bertius, published in 1616. According to King, their correct attribution is by Hondius, after Mercator and Hondius, taken from Bertius, who was only responsible for revising his text again. Copperplates, in very good conditions. Amsterdam Amsterdam C. Quirino, Philippine Cartography, p. 102 135 100

Construído a partir de um pequeno retiro de freiras contíguo ao palácio dos Infantes, o Convento de Conceição pertencia à ordem de Santa Clara e encontrava-se sob a jurisdição franciscana. Neste Convento da Conceição viveu Mariana Alcoforado a abadessa que na sua juventude escreveu as famosas Cartas Portuguesas. A obra está centrada na vida (santificada) de dezenas de membros da Casa de Áustria, justificando desta maneira a existência do Sacro Império Romano-germânico. As biografias apresentadas começam pela biografia da Princesa Dona Joana. Esta princesa foi casada com o Príncipe Dom João de Portugal, filho do Rei D. João II de Portugal, tendo o referido príncipe sofrido um acidente mortal que levou ao regresso da princesa para a Corte de Madrid, onde terminou piedosamente os seus dias no Convento de Santa Clara. Segue-se a vida da Imperatriz Dona Maria, cuja mãe a Imperatriz Isabel era filha do Rei Dom Manuel I de Portugal. Após a morte do Imperador seu marido, Dona Maria voltou para Madrid onde mais tarde, e depois de muitas obras piedosas, faleceu no convento. Segue-se, no final da obra um capítulo com um enorme rol de santos da Casa de Áustria, ou hagiologia relacionada com as monarquias consanguíneas, nas quais se descrevem brevemente a vida e as virtudes dos duques, príncipes e reis que alcançaram a santidade. In 8º (20x14 cm) with [8], 320, [2] folios. Contemporary flexible parchment binding, restored with leather on spine (with gilt tools done approximately at the same time). Slight book-worming. Copy with handwritten ex-libris in the front page: ?Da Livraria de S. Francisco de Beja, Est. 8. Cx. 2?, FDB. [Of the Library of St. Francis of Beja, Shelf 8. Box 2]. St. Francis Library was located in the convent with the same name. However, the Franciscan friars had guardianship over the Convent of the Royal Monastery of Our Lady of the Conception (founded in the second half of the 15th century by prince D. Fernando, first Duke of Beja, together with his wife D. Beatriz). This convent belonged to the order of Poor Clares and was under Franciscan jurisdiction. The work is centred in the (sainted) life of dozens of members of the House of Austria, thus justifying the existence of the Holy Roman Empire. The biographies start with the biography of Princess Joana, who was married to Prince João of Portugal, son of King João II. The prince died in an accident and the princess went back to the Madrid Court, ending her days in the Convent of Santa Clara. The book ends with a chapter with a long list of saints from the House of Austria or angelology

        The Workes of the Most High and Mightie Prince, James by the Grace of God, King of Great Britaine, France and Ireland

      London: Robert Barker and John Bill, 1616. Edges browned, affecting the outer blank margins, preliminaries thumbed and contents leaf with marginal paper repairs; bindings scuffed with some wear of the extremities and raised bands (now skilfully repaired), recent spine label; nonetheless an attractive copy in a striking early binding.. Folio, engraved and letterpress titles, frontispiece portrait and royal arms; contemporary full calf with raised bands and gilt stamped crests to both boards. First edition of King James's works, long regarded as a paradigm of early seventeenth-century English typography and book production. The Workes include famous essays such as the Daemonologie and A Counterblaste to Tobacco, and feature the famous portrait engraved by Simon de Passe and the ornamental title page by Renold Elstracke.James was remarkable in the range and extent of his literary output: 'His harsh education failed to discourage his love of the things of the mind; the king famed to this day for his passion for hunting was, in his own time, equally famed for his passion for retiring into his study for solace and as an escape from relentless and importunate suitors' (ODB). As a writer James may have been florid and prone to circumlocution, yet his prodigious output of essays and pamphlets provide extraordinary insights into monarchy and society under Stuart rule. Two of the most famous essays concern pivotal social events: the Daemonologie provides a good account of the prosecution of the North Berwick witchcraft trials, while in A Discourse of the Powder Treason the Kingreflections on the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, wherein London parliament narrowly avoided destruction at the hands of Catholic rebels led by Robert Catesby and Guy Fawkes. James delved into a remarkable range of topics, including statecraft, philosophy and theology, revealing both a curious and mercurial disposition and the deeply held belief that writing and publishing were an integral part of good royal governance.This copy has the with the supplement of 1620 bound in, comprising two additional essays that complete the Royal opus.

        Delle lodi della illustrissima et eccellentissima sig.ra Bibiana Pernestana Gonzaga principessa di Castiglione. Oratione recitata sopra' l corpo nell'esequie celebrate il mese di marzo 1616

      Cassiani, Modena 1616 - In 8, pp. 26. Timbretto di duplicato della Biblioteca Comunitativa di Bologna. Br. rifatta con carta d'epoca. Rarissima edizione originale di questa orazione funebre in memoria di Bibiana Pernstein Gonzaga principessa di Castiglione. Agostino Mascardi nacque a Sarzana nel 1590. Proseguendo una consolidata tradizione familiare, fu inviato a Roma per compiere gli studi presso il seminario romano. Nel 1606 entro' nella Compagnia di Gesu'. Nel 1617 pubblico' l'orazione funebre anche per il marito della Pernstein, il principe Francesco Gonzaga. In quegli anni frequento' assiduamente la corte modenese degli Este, dove entro' in amicizia con il conte Camillo Molza. La ricerca di una sistemazione entro la corte estense, e particolarmente presso il cardinale Alessandro d'Este, pose il M. in conflitto con i suoi superiori gesuiti che nell'autunno 1617 lo costrinsero a deporre l'abito della Compagnia.

      Basel: Ludwig König, 1615; 1607; Oppenheim: Hieronymus Galler for the Heirs of Johann Theodor de Bry, 1614;, 1616. Second Edition of the first work, FIRST EDITION of the second and third works; First Latin Edition of the fourth work y. This is an important and fascinating collection of works from the man sometimes called the father of German surgery, Wilhelm Fabry von Hilden (1560-1634). Fabry was the first well-educated German surgeon and a prolific author, whose applied research (like that of his contemporary, Antoine Paré) transformed early modern medicine. Norman notes that "although he did not reject traditional humoral doctrine, Fabry was ahead of his time in his attempts to explain disease and injury in terms of localized physical causes." This volume begins with the second edition of the first published description of the contents (and their applications) of a medical field chest for military use. Although he never served in a military campaign, Fabry made numerous innovations in battlefield surgery, notably in amputation. He was the first to successfully amputate at the thigh as well as the first to recommend amputation significantly above the line of gangrene. The second item is the first work devoted to the study of burns; Fabry was the first to classify burn severity into three degrees, and to describe how different heat sources resulted in different types of burns. He also set forth the first reasonable treatments for burns that specified the regular cleaning and treating of blisters, loose bandaging, and how to deal with conglutination (a particular problem with severe burns to fingers). The third item, while not the first published work on gunshot wounds, sets out Fabry's revolutionary approach to treating such wounds. Unlike his contemporaries, Fabry correctly understood that the greatest threat from a bullet was severe bleeding and tissue trauma. The second priority was removal of foreign objects from the body (including bone splinters) without causing undue additional damage to the patient (many other surgeons advocated digging around until the bullet could be extracted). Fabry designed minimally invasive (and easily portable) tools to extract bullets and other objects as well as devices to allow wounds to heal from the inside out, so as not to trap infection deep inside the body. Finally, the fourth item is Fabry's important work on dysentery. A plague survivor himself, Fabry was a keen epidemiologist who witnessed several plague and dysentery outbreaks in Germany and Switzerland. Through observation and patient interviews, he realized that dysentery could have a variety of causes, requiring different treatments. He also recognized that many dysentery cases were transmittable and emphasized the need to keep patients isolated until symptoms abated. Considering the contents--medical chest, burns, gunshot wounds, dysentery--this collection could well have been assembled by or for a military field surgeon; it clearly anticipated the numerous editions of Fabry's collected works that started appearing in the mid-17th century and were reprinted and used as medical manuals until the end of the 18th century. The present works are all of considerable rarity in these first and early editions.. 165 x 102 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 16 p.l., 674 (i.e. 676), [8] pp., [2] leaves (blank) (lacking three preliminary leaves of text); 8 p.l., 107, [1] pp., [2] leaves (blank); 77, [1] pp., [1] leaf (blank); 22, [2], 157, [11] pp. Four works bound in one volume.

Joints starting to crack at head and tail, but still strong, vellum lightly soiled, front cover with single wormhole, rear with two wormholes, creases to spine and a tiny closed tear at tail, but the binding entirely sound and not without appeal. Five leaves of first work with small tears at outside margin (no text affected), occasional light browning or foxing throughout (due to poor paper quality), but a pleasing copy of a book often found in rough shape. This is an important and fascinating collection of works from the man sometimes called the father of German surgery, Wilhelm Fabry von Hilden (1560-1634). Fabry was the first well-educated German surgeon and a prolific author, whose applied research (like that of his contemporary, Antoine Paré) transformed early modern medicine. Norman notes that "although he did not reject traditional humoral doctrine, Fabry was ahead of his time in his attempts to explain disease and injury in terms of localized physical causes." This volume begins with the second edition of the first published description of the contents (and their applications) of a medical field chest for military use. Although he never served in a military campaign, Fabry made numerous innovations in battlefield surgery, notably in amputation. He was the first to successfully amputate at the thigh as well as the first to recommend amputation significantly above the line of gangrene. The second item is the first work devoted to the study of burns; Fabry was the first to classify burn severity into three degrees, and to describe how different heat sources resulted in different types of burns. He also set forth the first reasonable treatments for burns that specified the regular cleaning and treating of blisters, loose bandaging, and how to deal with conglutination (a particular problem with severe burns to fingers). The third item, while not the first published work on gunshot wounds, sets out Fabry's revolutionary approach to treating such wounds. Unlike his contemporaries, Fabry correctly understood that the greatest threat from a bullet was severe bleeding and tissue trauma. The second priority was removal of foreign objects from the body (including bone splinters) without causing undue additional damage to the patient (many other surgeons advocated digging around until the bullet could be extracted). Fabry designed minimally invasive (and easily portable) tools to extract bullets and other objects as well as devices to allow wounds to heal from the inside out, so as not to trap infection deep inside the body. Finally, the fourth item is Fabry's important work on dysentery. A plague survivor himself, Fabry was a keen epidemiologist who witnessed several plague and dysentery outbreaks in Germany and Switzerland. Through observation and patient interviews, he realized that dysentery could have a variety of causes, requiring different treatments. He also recognized that many dysentery cases were transmittable and emphasized the need to keep patients isolated until symptoms abated. Considering the contents--medical chest, burns, gunshot wounds, dysentery--this collection could well have been assembled by or for a military field surgeon; it clearly anticipated the numerous editions of Fabry's collected works that started appearing in the mid-17th century and were reprinted and used as medical manuals until the end of the 18th century. The present works are all of considerable rarity in these first and early editions.

De Laudibus Legum Angliae Writen by Sir Iohn Fortescue L. Ch. Iustice, and After L. Chancellor to K. Henry VI. Hereto are Ioind the Two Summes of Sir Ralph de Hengham L. Ch. Iustice to K. Edward I. Commonly Calld Hengham Magna, And Hengham Parva. Never Before Publisht. Notes Both on Fortescue and Hengham are Added. London: Printed [by Adam Islip] for the Companie of Stationers, 1616. [ix], 132, [3] ff.; 56, [12], 35, 34-159, [3] pp. Last leaf blank. Two parts, each with title page and individual pagination. First part in parallel columns; Latin with running English translation. Texts of Summes in Latin with notes in English. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Contemporary calf with later rebacking, blind rules to boards, blind fillets along joints, raised bands and gilt title to spine, corners mended, endpapers renewed, "F&H" in early hand to top-edge of text block. Some rubbing to extremities, a few minor nicks and scuffs to boards. Light toning to text, negligible faint dampstaining in places, side-notes on several leaves trimmed with minor loss to legibility. Brief early annotations to title page and a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * First Selden edition. De Laudibus Legum Angliae, a history of English law, was written for the instruction of Edward, the young Prince of Wales. Cast in dialogue form, it demonstrates that the common law was the oldest and most reasonable legal system in Europe. It also compares the common and Roman systems and extols the superiority of a constitutionally limited monarchy. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first printed in 1567. Selden's was the first critical edition of this work, perhaps the first critical editions of an early English legal work. Aside from their value to the elucidation of Fortescue's text, Selden's notes interrogate aspects of Fortescue's text and offer rich insights into jurisprudence and the nature of the English constitution. As noted by Christianson, his conclusions disputed "the concept of immemorial custom argued by [Sir John] Davies and the anachronistic historical interpretations displayed by [Sir Edward] Coke." It was reissued in 1660, 1672 and 1737 with [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Resolutionum criminalium Petri Caballi ... centuriae tres.

      Caballo (d. 1616) was a Florentine judge and legal writer who saw his "Resolutionum criminalium" achieve great acceptance upon publication in 1606 and as attested to by the several later editions in the 17th century. This dense work on criminal law begins with a title-page in red and black with type in a great variety of point sizes of roman and italic. The text is printed in double-column format and each "century" begins with a large woodcut headpiece and ends with a small woodcut tailpiece. This edition, "Hac quarta editione pluribus mendis expurgatae," has several very good indices of "arguments," words, and "things."

        A commentarie of ... Martin Luther upon the epistle of S. Paul to the Galathians.

      London: Richard Field, Small 4to (18 cm; 7"). [4], 296 ff.. 1616 Fourth edition in English of Luther's In epistolam Sancti Pauli ad Galatas commentarius, which first appeared for the English monoglots in 1575, with second and third editions in 1577 and 1602. The Epistle to the Galatians held a special place in Luther's heart and mind; he lectured on it in 1519 and also in 1523. It is widely reported that in his table talks he is recorded as saying: "The Epistle to the Galatians is my epistle. To it I am as it were in wedlock. It is my Katherine [i.e., the name of his wife]." Provenance: Ownership inscription of Bryan Tompson, 1735 (fol. 166r); also on A2r, undated, family name spelled "Thompson" and with notation of cost of book as 5/3. Late 19th- or early 20-century ownership inscription on front free endpaper of G.P. Hesketh, of Beltrami Cty., MN; later given (1907) to Dr. Charles Schwartz. 18th-century English speckled sheep, recently rebacked; late 19th- or early 20th-century endpapers. Title-page cut down close to text (supplied from a different copy?), mounted to restore page size and expose type on verso; leaf soiled. Top margins throughout closely cropped, costing the top line of text on five of the eight preliminary pages and the running heads and folio numbers on many (not all) text leaves; staining in portions in margins and sometimes into the text of the upper outer sixth of a leaf; longitudinal hole on fols. 259 to 262 costing three words total. Not a perfect, but a decent copy of a Lutheran mainstay in an edition not often found on the market.

Mylne--almost certainly the engineer and architect William Chadwell Mylne (1781-1863), who came from a long line of masons, surveyors, and architects--on front pastedown. This influential textbook addressed the practical everyday needs of surveyors more realistically and technically than had been done before, emphasizing the importance of maintaining professional standards and placing surveying firmly among the mathematical sciences.The first two books deal with the elements of geometry, the third book describes surveying instruments and their application, and the fourth discusses legal and manorial issues.

De Laudibus Legum Angliae, a history of English law, was written for the instruction of Edward, the young Prince of Wales. Cast in dialogue form, it demonstrates that the common law was the oldest and most reasonable legal system in Europe. It also compares the common and Roman systems and extols the superiority of a constitutionally limited monarchy. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first printed in 1567. Selden's was the first critical edition of this work, perhaps the first critical editions of an early English legal work. Aside from their value to the elucidation of Fortescue's text, Selden's notes interrogate aspects of Fortescue's text and offer rich insights into jurisprudence and the nature of the English constitution. As noted by Christianson, his conclusions disputed "the concept of immemorial custom argued by [Sir John] Davies and the anachronistic historical interpretations displayed by [Sir Edward] Coke." It was reissued in 1660, 1672 and 1737 with
