        Dell'historia de i semplici aromati, et altre cose che vengono portate dall'Indie Orientali pertinenti all'uso della medicina di Don Garzia Dall'Horto... et due altri libri parimente di quelle cose che si portano dall'Indie Occidentali di Nicolo Monardes... tradotti... da Annibale Briganti...

      1616. Venezia, G. Salis, 1616. 8vo (160 x 110mm). pp. (32), 525, (1), with printer's device on title and numerous woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum. A later Italian translation by Briganti of Orta and Monardes. This translation is made from Clusius' Latin translation of both works and not from the original. It illustrates how European knowledge of the texts of Orta and Monardes was principally disseminated via Clusius' version rather than the Portuguese and Spanish originals. Orta's work was first published in Goa in 1563 and is a treatise on medical plants of India. The first edition of Monardes was published in Sevilla, 1565. Monardes tells of the various herbs and gums brought from the New World and their medicinal virtues. He writes of Copall, Anime, Tacamahaca, Balsamo, Guiacum, the most interesting Mechoacan, etc. Furtheron this work contains the first written account and illustration of tobacco, its use as a wound-herb and in the religious ceremonies of the Red Indians. Three small red old paint spots on title and 2 index leaves with minor paper damage. Wellcome I, 4663..

        Sommario delle Vite de Gl'Imperadori Romani, Cavato dall'Historie Antiche, et Moderne, con le Loro Effigie, Ritratte Dalla Medaglie, Et anco in nomi de' Pontefici, che a quei tempi furono

      In Siena, Appresso gli Heredi de Matteor Florini, 1616. Small 4to, 206 x 140 mms., 40 leaves with the wood-engraved images of 155 Roman emperors, in double columns, engraved vignette on title-page, fore-margin and lower margin of last leaf slightly defective with loss of four letters, but a very good copy, bound in full hard-grain brown morocco by The Club Bindery circa 1900, with gilt dentelles, gilt spine, and the small rectangular red morocco bookplate of Robert Hoe III (1839 - 1909), noted collector and first president of The Grolier Club. Paoli's dates are given in some sources as 1599 - 1630, and the earliest edition of this book that I have traced was published in 1606, which would make him rather precocious. The work was frequently reprinted and was translated into English in 1636, probably by Robert Basset, though the translation is also attributed to Richard Braithwait.

        Hispaniae Nova Describtio, de Integro Multis Inlocis, Secundum Hydrographicas, Desc. Emendata

      Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius, 1616. unbound. very good. Petrus Kaerius. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 14.75" x 20.25". Map of Iberian Peninsula, beautifully decorated with ships and sea monsters. French text on back. Scattered staining and crease right of centerfold, that has led to a few small holes. From the "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Plate was originally made by Mercator and later added to by Hondius. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

        Teutsche Sprach und Weissheit. Thesaurus linguae et sapientiae Germanicae

      Augsburg: David Franc, 1616. Hardcover. Near Fine. Folio [33.75 x 22.25 cm]. (430) ff., the last blank and integral, erroneously paginated in two columns per page up to 1875, with woodcut title showing portraits of the electors of and ecclesiastical officers of the Holy Roman Empire as well as a view of Augsburg. Bound in full contemporary vellum over boards with stamped trim and emblem on both covers, manuscript title on spine. Light spotting on title page mainly confined to margins and two printing flaws slightly affecting the view of Augsburg at the foot of the page, otherwise a clean, fresh, and very genuine copy, excellent. Extremely rare first and only edition of this polyglot dictionary aimed at a vernacular reader, by far the most ambitious dictionary of the German language to date and a notable attempt to organize and present both lexicographical and cultural information in an encyclopedic form. Henisch's dictionary was "a remarkable attempt to put Gessner's vision into action. He and Gessner were seeing a dictionary both as a comprehensive repository of culture, and as a comprehensive account of things. In the integration of popular wisdom into a dictionary to make it a truly representational cultural record, Hensich would have no rivals until the great national dictionaries of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries" - Considine, Dictionaries in Early Modern Europe: Lexicography and the Making of Heritage, p. 138. Henisch's Teutsche Sprach und Weissheit was the first polyglot dictionary to organize words alphabetically by their German form, stressing the primacy of his native language above that of the traditional Latin, and making it the first user-friendly dictionary for native German speakers. In previous dictionaries, the reader was obliged to look up the desired word in Latin in order to translate it into another language; with Henisch's dictionary, then, "we thus encounter a growing awareness of the speaker's real needs" - Stein, p 148. The present folio dictionary advertised its ambitious reach in its title, promising to translate 'German Language and Wisdom' into no fewer than 10 other tongues, along with synonyms, exemplary phrases, and proverbs. Very often even the German headword is followed by a German explanation of the term, with etymological observations: eg the German word Bagagie, which Henisch claims is a "Dutch, Spanish, English, and French word, from the Hebrew beged.". Henisch's lexicography is comparable to any modern scholarly dictionary in his attempt to capture all possible meanings for a given term: the entry for 'armen' (to arm, to impoverish, etc.), for example, contains more than 40 common or colloquial phrases to show the verb in use in Henisch's time. Georg Henisch (1549-1618) was a member of the Humanistic circle of Markus Welser, with whom he founded a publishing firm, "Ad insigne Pinus". Unfortunately he died before the completion of his monumental dictionary, and thus only the first volume (A-G) ever reached the press. OCLC records no American copy of the Teutsche Sprach und Weissheit. * VD17 12:131438A; cf also Gabriele Stein, "English-German/German-English lexicography: Its early beginnings" Lexicographica I: 134-164 (1985).

        WHOLE WORKS OF HOMER, PRINCE OF POETTS, IN HIS ILIADS, THE ODYSSES, TRANSLATED ACCORDING TO THE GREEKE

      London: Printed for Nathaniell Butter, [1616]. 2 volumes in one. The Rare and True First Edition of the two books, issued together here. This copy highly unusual in that it retains the original ILIADS title page, and with preliminary blank as called for. Engraved general title-page and engraved title by William Hole, portrait of Chapman on verso, engraved dedication to Prince Henry. Folio, in a very handsome binding of full antique calf, spine elaborately gilt in six compartments, one with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A fine, unwashed copy in antique binding with the spine refurbished to style, unpressed and unwashed, the text complete including the full 1611 ILIADS and the complete ODYSSEYS. A VERY RARE AND COMPLETE COPY OF THIS GREAT TEXT WITH THE THE FIRST EDITION ILIAD TITLE RETAINED, RARE THUS. The final and most complete state of “Chapman’s Homer.” It took Chapman 25 years to finish his master translation, meanwhile it was published in segments as he completed them. Seven books of the ILIADS (1-2 and 7-11) first appear in quarto in 1598, then books 1-12 in folio in 1609, and finally all 24 in 1611. Books 1-12 of the ODYSSES were first printed in c.1614 and then reissued with books 13-24 in 1615. Homer’s hymns and verses were separately published, c.1624 as was the BATRACHOMYOMACHIA. As the translation progressed, these works were also published together, so the ILIADS could be found alone, with the first 12 books of the ODYSSES, with the complete ODYSSES and finally with the ILIADS, ODYSSES and CROWNE of minor poems all together. Almost all copies of Chapman’s Homer that include the CROWNE, were issued with the c.1634 second edition of the Illiad, printed by Thomas Harper for Nathanial Butter (earlier printings for Butter,Field and Jaggard had run out). As the various components were put together, the title pages for the individual works were eliminated (though in some copies one or more of these may have been retained), and in the final form the CROWNE’s was also eliminated for continuity. On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer Much have I travell'd in the realms of gold, And many goodly states and kingdoms seen; Round many western islands have I been Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold. Oft of one wide expanse had I been told That deep-brow'd Homer ruled as his demesne; Yet never did I breathe its pure serene Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold. Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken; Or like stout Cortez, when with eagle eyes He star'd at the Pacific - and all his men Look'd at each other with a wild surmise - Silent, upon a peak in Darien. -- John Keats Copies of this highly important work, unwashed AND un-pressed have become rare on in the marketplace.

      Amsterdam: Unknown. Fine+. 1616. Hardcover. Illustrated broadsheet, without place, printing or signature, 1616. Small oblong folio, ( size of sheet 19 x 26 cm. ) . With engraving of murder, above title, below German text in typesetting. Jan van Wely was a rich and well known jeweller of Amsterdam. In March 1616, he travelled to The Hague to show Prince Maurice of Nassau a precious collection of diamonds and rubies. There he became the victim of a murder with robbery, preformed by two Frenchmen. The engraving of the broadsheet depicts van Wely elegantly dressed, examining jewels given to him by one of his murderers, Ian van Parijs, whereas the other, Ian de la Vinge, is directing a bullet from his pistol towards Wely's head. A window in the rear wall shows a later moment: the murderers trying to hide Wely's corpse. The case causes big sensations in contemporary Europe. The murderers were seized and executed in May of the same year. Drugulin II, 1305, describes a broadsheet identical to ours but bearing engravers signature of Crispin de Passe. This sheet seems to be a close copy of de Passe's engraving. Trimmed close. Upper right corner has a neat repair with replacement of paper about 1.2 inches x ,55 inches. A very interesting and humourous broadsheet. Several engravings of devils are floating around the scene, tempting the theives, and there is a small miniature of the gallows scene where the murderers are being hanged. Excellent condition. Description courtesy of Reiss & Sohn, Konigstein, 3-05-97 Mounted in a sumptuous oblong 4to binding, 1/4 black morocco with marbled boards, corners in leather as well, with extra leaves by Aquarius Bookbinders of England.( the U. K's foremost bookbinding firm). ; 19 x 26 Cm.; Oblong 4to 11" - 13" tall; 1 pages .

De Controversiis Christianae Fidei, Adversus Huius Temporis Haereticos" New duties after 1589 Until 1589, Bellarmine was occupied as professor of theology. After the murder in that year of Henry III of France, Pope Sixtus V sent Enrico Caetani as legate to Paris[2] to negotiate with the Catholic League of France, and chose Bellarmine to accompany him as theologian.[3] He was in the city during its siege by Henry of Navarre. The next pope, Clement VIII, set great store by him. He was made rector of the Roman College in 1592, examiner of bishops in 1598, and cardinal in 1599. Immediately after his appointment as Cardinal, Pope Clement made him a Cardinal Inquisitor, in which capacity he served as one of the judges at the trial of Giordano Bruno, and concurred in the decision which condemned Bruno to be burned at the stake as a heretic. [4] The Galileo case In 1616, on the orders of Paul V, Bellarmine summoned Galileo, notified him of a forthcoming decree of the Congregation of the Index condemning the Copernican doctrine of the mobility of the Earth and the immobility of the Sun, and ordered him to abandon it.[5] Galileo agreed.[6] When Galileo later complained of rumors to the effect that he had been forced to abjure and do penance, Bellarmine wrote out a certificate denying the rumors, stating that Galileo had merely been notified of the decree and informed that, as a consequence of it, the Copernican doctrine could not be "defended or held".[7] Cardinal Bellarmine was himself ambiguous about heliocentrism, personally noting that further research had to be done to confirm or condemn it.[citation needed] (In 1633, Galileo would again be called before the Inquisition in this matter.) Dogmatics Main article: Disputationes From his research grew his Disputationes de controversiis christianae fidei (also called Disputationes), first published at Ingolstadt in 1581?1593. This major work was the earliest attempt to systematize the various religious controversies of the time. Bellarmine devoted eleven years to it while at the Roman College. The first volume of the Disputationes treats of the Word of God, of Christ, and of the Pope; the second of the authority of ecumenical councils, and of the Church, whether militant, expectant, or triumphant; the third of the sacraments; and the fourth of Divine grace, free will, justification, and good works.[citation needed

        A DESCRIPTION OF NEW ENGLAND: OR THE OBSERVATIONS, AND DISCOUERIES, OF CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH (ADMIRALL OF THAT COUNTRY) IN THE NORTH OF AMERICA, IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1614: WITH THE SUCCESSE OF SIXE SHIPS, THAT WENT THE NEXT YEARE 1615; AND THE ACCIDENTS BEFELL HIM AMONG THE FRENCH MEN OF WARRE: WITH THE PROOFE OF THE PRESENT BENEFIT THIS COUNTREY AFFOORDS: WHITHER THIS PRESENT YEARE, 1616, EIGHT VOLUNTARY SHIPS ARE GONE TO MAKE FURTHER TRYALL

      London: Printed by Humfrey Lownes, for Robert Clerke, 1616.. [16],61,[2]pp. plus folding engraved map of New England. Small quarto. Full calf in antique style, leather label. Light dampstaining on top edge. Some careful expert paper restoration to upper foremargins of first ten leaves or so (including titlepage), and to a lesser extent on some later leaves. Map trimmed to the neat line, with a very small hole (4 x 25 mm.) at center in the ocean, neatly filled in. Some contemporary manuscript on verso of title-leaf and first text leaf. A nice copy. One of the great rarities of colonial Americana, Smith's A DESCRIPTION OF NEW ENGLAND... was, according to Streeter, "the pilgrim's principal guide to their American haven." Based on Smith's two visits to the New England coast in 1614 and 1615, this book did much to encourage later settlement in New England, preceding by four years the sailing of the Mayflower. In fact, Smith named Plymouth Rock, and described the place as "an excellent good harbour, good lands, and no want of anything but industrious people." Smith's first voyage was financed by a group of London merchants, with the primary objective being the search for whales and gold mines (the gold mines turned out to be "the masters device to get a voyage"). That first visit was relatively brief but afforded ample opportunities for trading with the Indians and for the collection of much geographical and natural history information. On his second voyage in 1615, Smith met with less success; thwarted by storms and pirates, he was eventually taken prisoner by a French warship. During his free time as a captive, Smith wrote A DESCRIPTION OF NEW ENGLAND..., destined to reveal the advantages and prospects for future adventurers to the region. "The use of the term 'New England' on the title page of this book established that name for the region that until then had been called North Virginia. The 'altered names' leaf, inserted between A4 and B1, records thirty new names chosen by Prince Charles to replace the mainly Indian place names of New England. All of the new names seem to have stuck except Cape James for Cape Cod" - Streeter. The rare map, printed by George Low, is here present in the fourth state as described by Sabin, Church, and Burden (there are nine recorded states of the map). Only the exceedingly rare first two states of the map properly belong with the book, both produced in 1616 (most copies, however, contain later states of the map; the only copy in some decades to have the first issue was the Siebert copy). Based on surveys made by Captain Smith for the Council for New England, the map is considered the foundation of New England cartography. It stands as the first map on which the name New England appears. The map depicts the area from the present Penobscot Bay in Maine, to Cape Cod. A monumental American rarity of the greatest possible importance. While not the main entry in PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN, Smith's GENERALL HISTORIE..., this work appeared eight years earlier, and is wholly incorporated into that work.

        Pianta del meraviglioso viaggio della Santa Casa di Loreto

      Bulino, 1616. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre edito da Sebastiano Fulcari. Magnifica prova, impresa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La prima edizione di questa serie di carte di gusto prettamente devozionale si deve a Giovanni Battista Cavalieri, che la incise nel 1567, ispirandosi ai cicli agiografici scolpiti sul rivestimento marmoreo della Santa Casa, alla quale seguirono altre opere derivate dalla Origine et Traslazione della Chiesa di Santa Maria di Loreto del 1573 di Claudio Duchetti. La carta mostra le varie tappe del volo della Santa Casa sorretta dagli Angeli. Molti personaggi animano la scena, sono rappresentati pellegrini, viandanti, alcuni fedeli inginocchiati in adorazione, e banditi. In basso una iscrizione racconta gli avvenimenti, che hanno condotto la Casa di Maria dalla Palestina a Loreto. Al centro in alto è raffigurata la Vergine con il bambino benedicente, mentre a destra in un riquadro la Vergine tra due lampade pendenti e due angeli che reggono un cero, al di sotto della sua immagine il testo delle litanie Lauretane, tutto intorno una serie di medaglioni dove sono raffigurati alcuni miracoli ottenuti mediante la sua intercessione, più in basso la dedica di Sebastiano Fulcari alla principessa Doria Pamphili infine la mappa con il tragitto che secondo la tradizione fece la Santa casa, dalla Palestina a Tersatto presso Fiume e poi a Loreto.

      Venezia, G. Salis, 1616. 8vo (160 x 110mm). pp. (32), 525, (1), with printer's device on title and numerous woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum. A later Italian translation by Briganti of Orta and Monardes. This translation is made from Clusius' Latin translation of both works and not from the original. It illustrates how European knowledge of the texts of Orta and Monardes was principally disseminated via Clusius' version rather than the Portuguese and Spanish originals. Orta's work was first published in Goa in 1563 and is a treatise on medical plants of India. The first edition of Monardes was published in Sevilla, 1565. Monardes tells of the various herbs and gums brought from the New World and their medicinal virtues. He writes of Copall, Anime, Tacamahaca, Balsamo, Guiacum, the most interesting Mechoacan, etc. Furtheron this work contains the first written account and illustration of tobacco, its use as a wound-herb and in the religious ceremonies of the Red Indians. Three small red old paint spots on title and 2 index leaves with minor paper damage. Wellcome I, 4663.

        Stirpium Historia pemptades sex, sive libri XXX ...

      Antverpiae, ex Officina Plantiniana, apud B. & I. Moretos, 1616. Folio (346 x 230mm). pp. (16), 872, (66), with fine engraved title and 1341 woodcuts of plants in the text. Contemporary blindpressed pigskin. "Best revised and enlarged edition." (Hunt 201). A fine and attractively bound copy, frontcover hinges splitting but firm. Dodoens was the first of the Great Flemish botanists and helped to forward the growing interest in classification which had begun with Bock's "Neu Kreuterbuch" in 1539. Dodonaeus graduated from the University of Louvain in 1535. After working in Malines as a physician he moved to Vienna to assume the post of personal physician to Emperor Maximilian II, later he moved to Prague when Rudolph II succeeded Maximilian. In 1582 Dodonaeus was appointed professor of botany at the University of Leiden. The above offered work is Dodoens last and most comprehensive botanical work, incorporating material from a number of his earlier books, including the "Cruydeboeck". It is of interest, that he made here an attempt to an explanation of the parts of the plants. Nissen BBI, 517.

        L'Histoire Universelle du Sieur D'Aubign [Three Volumes].

      365, [28]; 489, [14 pp]; 549, [14] pp. 4to. Full speckled calf, spine with six raised bands, red morocco lettering pieces, six compartments heavily decorated in gilt as are board edges, marbled endpapers, all edges stained red. First edition. Graesse I, 249. Brunet I, 545. European Americana: 516/4. Tchemerzine I, 164. Picot: Catalogue bibliothque Rothschild, 2086. Backer III, 595. Theodore Agrippa D'Aubigne (1552-1630) "is the most enduring of late-sixteenth-century Huguenot authors. Of all witnesses of his age, he most directly and thoroughly addresses the violence of the Wars of Religion. The psychological and social impact of these conflicts are depicted in d'Aubign's epic, Les Tragiques (1616, The Tragic Ones), and in his historical work, L'Histoire universelle (1616-1620), " (Long, Kathleen P. "Theodore Agrippa d'Aubigne." Sixteenth-Century French Writers, in DLB). The purpose of L'Histoire universelle was to present the history of the second half of the sixteenth century, though d'Aubign reaches back to the eleventh century in order for posterity to know ?our history from us.?. The Synod of Gap authorized d'Aubign's historical project, directing Protestant churches in France to send all information they gathered to d'Aubign. But despite the official sanction, ?the strength of L'Histoire universelle lies in the detailed accounts of battles d'Aubign saw as an eyewitness or heard about from friends or cohorts.? The first edition of L'Histoire universelle, published in three volumes between 1616 and 1620, covers the period from the birth of Henri de Navarre in 1553 to the end of the Wars of Religion. But d'Aubign could not persuade the king of the justice of the Protestant cause nor obtain royal permission to publish his work. The first two volumes were finally condemned by royal authorities in 1620, and realizing that he could not remain in France and that a warrant for his arrest had been issued, he fled to Geneva. Each volume includes sections on developments in the Americas -their discovery and colonization by Spain and other European powers, all from a Protestant perspective. Very scarce as most copies were burned. "Edition Originale extrmement rare, elle fut imprime aux frais de l'auteur. Mais ds sa publication, une sentence du 2 janvier 1620 condamna l'ouvrage tre brl; quelques exemplaires seulement chapprent au feu " (Tchemerzine I, 164). Joints split at spine ends, boards soiled and edge worn; small worm hole in front board of Vol. I, writing verso of free front endpapers; Vol. III tear to free rear endpapers.

Uthtolkat aff Erico Schrodero. Sthlm, C. Reusnero, 1616. 8:o. (8),356,(4) s. Samtida nött skinnbd med upphöjda bind och fin riklig blindpressad dekor på pärmarna. Knytbanden saknas. Främre pärmen är delvis maskangripen och den bakre är fuktskadad. Ryggen med några små maskhål och skada nederst. Titelbladet med pappersförlust i nedre yttre hörnet. Genomgående med fuktränder och spridda småfläckar, främst i marginalerna. Några maskhål mot slutet. Sidorna 37-44 är delvis loss. Med gamla ägaranteckningar på för- och eftersättsbladen respektive titelbladet. Trevligt ex.. Collijn 335. E-arket har satts slarvigt och arksignerats fel vilket gör att pagineringen på s. 66-79 är mycket oregelbunden. Det spanska originalet "Reloj de principes" utkom 1529. Författaren var bl.a. hovpredikant och rikshistorigraf hos Karl V. Boken var, enligt Henrik Schück i "Den svenska förlagsbokhandelns historia", "en av tidens mest populära 'umgängesskolor' och hade förmodligen god åtgång." Den utkom i flera upplagor på spanska och översattes redan under 1500-talet till flera andra europeiska språk. Ericus Schroderus var lärare, tillsammans med brodern Johan Skytte, i läsning och skrivning åt prins Karl Filip och utsågs 1612 till korrektor över kronans tryck med tillägget att han skulle låta översätta sådant som kunde anses nödvändigt. Tyngdpunkten av dessa arbeten låg naturligt nog på furstespeglar och sedelärande berättelser. Schroderus agerade själv förläggare för flera av böckerna med hjälp av frikostiga anslag från statskassan, genom den s.k. "bibeltryckstunnan"
