        Stirpium Historia pemptades sex, sive libri XXX ...

      1616. 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..

Mit 5 (von 7) ganzseitigen Titelkupfern, einem Druckvermerk in Kupfer sowie 28 ganzseitigen Kupfern, davon 2 Falttafeln, 45 Seiten mit Textkupfern sowie zahlreichen Zier- und Schlussstücken.

Um 1830 neu gebunden. Das dabei verwendete Vorsatzpapier stammt vermutlich aus der Papiermühle Twiste und trägt einen achtstrahligen Stern mit Mittelkreis (Kristallstern) als Wasserzeichen, das Gegenzeichen die Buchstaben 'GH'. Dieser Kristallstern ist das Wappensymbol des ehemaligen Fürstentums Waldeck. Das Gegenzeichen, die Buchstaben 'GH', konnten nicht eindeutig zugeordnet werden. Die Angaben zum Wasserzeichen des Vorsatzpapiers stammen vom Deutschen Buch- und Schriftmuseum der Deutschen Nationalbibliothek Leipzig, Papierhistorische Sammlungen. Insgesamt gibt es 13 Seiten mit Marginalien von alter Hand - vermutlich eine Schrift aus dem 18. Jahrhundert. Die Anmerkungen beziehen sich jeweils auf die angegebenen Schachzüge und Stellungen, die offensichtlich nachgespielt wurden.

Es blieb für 200 Jahre bis zum Erscheinen der Werke von Allgaier und Bilguer das bedeutendste Schachbuch in Deutschland. Das Werk ist nicht nur eine Übersetzung des Werkes von Ruy Lopez de Segura, sondern auch eine Erweiterung. Interessant auch durch die alten handschriftlichen Anmerkungen, dessen Urheber wir nicht ermitteln konnten. Ein Buch mit Geschichte. Das Spiel Rhythmochia war ein mittelaterliches Zahlenspiel und wurde auch Philosophenspiel genannt. Es wurde bereits von John von Salisbury und Roger Bacon empfohlen. Einbandkanten berieben, papierbedingt gebräunt, Seiten etwas braunfleckig, sechs Blätter mit Einrissen, vereinzelt leicht fleckig, insgesamt jedoch ordentliches Exemplar; der fehlende Vortitel, der Hauptitel, die doppelblattgroße Abbildung - den Herzog beim Schachspielen zeigend - sowie die fünf fehlenden Seiten des Vorworts und die beschädigte Tabula synopsin liegen in Fotokopie bei.

      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.

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
