SCHWENTER, Daniel.
First complete edition and the first edition of the fourth part (the first part was published in 1616, the first three parts together in 1618). The first book is a treatise on general mathematics and the principles of geometry. The second deals entirely with techniques of surveying. The third part describes a surveying instrument (the 'mensula praetoriana') invented by the scientific instrument maker Johann Praetorius (Richter) and its application. The fourth part is in fact a German translation of Curzio Casati's 'Geometricum problema' (1602). He shows himself to be particularly well acquainted with the contemporary Italian mathematical literature, giving in particular a resumé of some of the work of Pietro Antonio Cataldi: "The use of limited continued fractions in the expression of a relationship between large numbers is found in the 'Geometria practica' of Daniel Schweneter (1627), published soon after Cataldi's death." (DSB, III, p.128). Cantor, Vorlesungen II, p.666-70; Zeitlinger/Sotheran, 2nd suppl, 2421; Poggendorff II 878.. Four parts in one volume. 4to: 200 x 154 mm. Contemporary vellum. With two engraved and two woodcut titles, and two engraved portraits. Some browning throughout. Liechtenstein book plate to front paste down and "Anno 1640" inscribed at top.

Fuller, Nicholas
Oxford: Excudebat Iosephus Barnesius, 1616. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Small quarto. Collation: [par.]4 2[par.]4 A-3K4 3L*4 3L-4L4 4M2 (lacking final blank leaf 4M2). Pagination: [16], 439, 444-452, [8], 453-645, [1] pp. Contemporary English ivory vellum, triple blind fillets around sides, smooth spine edges stained red. From the now-defunct Hartford Theological Institute with blind stamps. This is the first edition printed in England. Scarce: ours is apparently the only copy in the market. Nicholas Fuller (c.1557-1623) was an English Hebraist and theologian whose skill in Semitic languages was recognized by his contemporaries including Buxtorf. Yet there are only two extant published writings to his name: the present work ("Miscellaneorum theologicorum," a.k.a. "Miscellaneorum sacrorum libri"), often reprinted, which contains a series of comments on difficult or controversial biblical texts, and the "Dissertatio de nomine Yaweh." "Fuller's writings contain ample evidence of his expertise as a Semitic scholar. It is evident from the comments he makes in 'Miscellaneorum sacrorum libri' that he recognizes the importance of cognate languages such as Syriac, Arabic, and Aramaic for understanding the Hebrew Bible, and is clearly well versed in them. He also appreciates the comments of medieval rabbis for elucidating textual difficulties. While he draws much on the leading Christian transmitters of Hebrew learning such as Nicholas de Lyre, Pagninus, Muenster, Tremellius, and Fagius, he often records his debt to the principal Jewish exegetes and grammarians.

Acosta, Jose de:
Paris. 1616.. [8],375,[16] leaves. Early vellum. Titlepage slightly worn at foredge. Scattered light soiling. Slight worming in gutter, not affecting text; two wormholes through last few leaves, minutely affecting text in spots. Bookplate of famous collector Alberto Parreno on verso of final leaf. Generally very good. Fourth French edition of this most important source book on the Indians of Mexico and Peru and on the natural history of South America. A Jesuit father, Acosta spent seventeen years in American missions in Mexico and Peru between 1571 and 1588. While in Peru he was instrumental in founding the printing press there, and its first productions, in 1585, were prepared by him. In addition to being an accomplished linguist, Acosta was one of the first to formulate a systemic theory of anthropology, suggesting a classification of different peoples into different types, which foreshadowed later ideas of social evolution. "As a natural historian, Acosta surpassed Oviedo. He took a philosophical approach to natural phenomena, searching for causes and effects in a spirit of critical inquiry....The subject of his moral history is pre- Columbian civilizations, particularly the Aztecs and the Incas, whose religions, customs, and governments he admiringly compares" - Delgado- Gomez. "He provided great detail in his descriptions of sailing directions, mineral wealth, trading commodities, Indian history, etc. Consequently his work operated more strongly than any other in opening the eyes of the rest of Europe to the great wealth that Spain was drawing from America" - Streeter. … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMDEN, William (1551-1623) – BRINGER, Johan, pr. (fl. 1608-1621)
Frankfurt: J. Bringer, 1616. Hardcover. Very Good. 2 works in one volume, separately titled, 8vo (190 x 120mm). 523pp., [xxv, index]; 762pp. [xxi, index]. Signatures: A-Ll (8); Mm (2), x (4), B-Ddd (8). Bringer’s woodcut printer’s device to each title of female muse holding dove with motto, “Et simplices, sicut estote prudentes, sicut serpents.” Printed marginalia. Period pigskin, elaborately tooled in blind with central lozenge of unidentified armorial device: two rosettes in chief a stork, raised right leg, surmounted by crest and helm; (Annales title lightly dampstained at gutter, Britannia title with lower right corner repaired, occasional spot at front or rear; lacking clasps, corners bumped). Early reference in Latin to front-free endpaper. The Annales is a Frankfurt reprint of the London edition of 1615; the Britannia, is the second printing in Frankfurt of the Third Edition (London: 1590). Camden’s intention with the Annales was to provide a biography of Elizabeth and a chronicle history of the Elizabethan state, with a special emphasis on foreign affairs. The Annales are coupled with here Camden’s famed work on Britain, aptly Britannia, intended principally to describe Britain as a province of the Roman Empire (hence the simple classical title). It was aimed at a classically educated international audience and until 1610 circulated only in Latin. Camden’s work on the Annales first begun in the 1580’s until he put the work aside after Elizabeth’s death in hopes that someone else better suited to the job would take it on, “…by 1608 [when he began the work again] th … [Click Below for Full Description]

The translation was "originally commissioned by James I to promote a royal marriage between Henry Prince of Wales (d. 1612) with the French princess Christine; some years later the project was revived in connection with the marriage of Charles Prince of Wales & Princess Henrietta Maria of France ..." - Griffiths. The section of the Psalms has its own woodcut decorated title-leaf (2R4).

Montemayor (Jorge de)
Milan: Juan Baptista Bidelo 1616 - 2 parts in one vol., variant woodcut printer’s device on titles, some browning in places, textblock weak at one juncture, pp. [xii, including final blank leaf], 407; 448, 12mo, contemporary vellum over boards, a little soiled and worn, good A relatively early edition of this important text: Palau quotes Menéndez Pelayo [in translation]: ‘La Diana has influenced modern literature more than any other pastoral novel, more than the Arcadia of Sannazaro, more than Daphnis and Chloe, and had no rival until Bernard de St. Pierre. This influence did not extend to Italy, where the pastoral dramas of Tasso and Guarini held sway, but it was very great in France and England.’ Indeed, La Diana is a source for Shakespeare, in The Two Gentlemen of Verona. If the Diana did not find such fertile ground in Italy, it is curious that there should have been three sixteenth-century editions at Venice, and this at Milan in 1616 - all in Spanish, however.Montemayor, or Montemor as is his Portuguese original patronymic, wrote only seven books of the Diana, but ‘continuations’ as well as parodies and imitations were not long in coming, that of Alonso Perez being one of the first continuations. Cervates judged Montemayor’s verses harshly, but recognized the remarkable merit of his Spanish prose.

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. 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. 4to. 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'Aubigné'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'Aubigné reaches back to the eleventh century in order for posterity to know ?our history from us.?. The Synod of Gap authorized d'Aubigné's historical project, directing Protestant churches in France to send all information they gathered to d'Aubigné. But despite the official sanction, ?the strength of L'Histoire universelle lies in the detailed accounts of battles d'Aubigné 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 b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mexia, Pedro; Mambrino Roseo; Francesco Sansovino; Alfonso de Ulloa; Bartolommeo Dionigi
Venice: Ambrosio & Bartolomeo Dei, 1616. 5 volumes in one. Quarto (23 cm); [40], 357, [17], 214, [12],186, [2 blank], [24], 277, [8], 112 pages. Each of the five parts with separate title page, with woodcut printer's device. Frequent woodcut illustrations, portraits, emblems, diagrams and ornaments in text. Bound in ineteenth-century half calf over marbled boards, expertly rebacked, with new leather label. Gilt edges. Few blemishes. Edges trimmed close, with some slight loss at lower edge of title page. References: Laurenti, Spanish Golden Age, 276. A 17th-century Italian translation of the Spanish 16th-century "forest of many stories" by Pedro Mexia. The book is a Spanish Renaissance entry into the genre named "Silvae" by Statius, but this text falls more into the tradition of Xenophon's Symposium, Athenaeus, Macrobius, and Aulus Gellius, that is, expansive, shapeless, episodic, with masses of detail and a stupefying variety of topics and narratives. It was incredibly popular in the 16th and 17th centuries, reprinted in something like 106 editions in every European language. It was a rich treasure chest for later Renaissance authors, such as Miguel Cervantes (whose Quixote is also a forest of many tales, several of them lifted from Mexia) and Christopher Marlowe (who pulled his Tamburlaine from its pages). It is now thoroughly obscure.
