        HISTORIA GENERAL DEL PERV TRATA EL DESCVBRIMIENTO DEL; Y COMO LO GANARON LOS ESPAÑOLES. LAS GUERRAS CIUILES QUE HUUO ENTRE PIÇARROS, Y ALMAGROS, SOBRE LA PARTIJA DE LA TIERRA. CASTIGO Y LEUANTAMIETO DE TIRANOS: Y OTROS SUCESSOS PARTICULARES QUE EN LA HISTORIA SE CONTIENEN. ESCRITA POR EL YNCA GARCILASSO DE LA VEGA

      [Cordova, 1617. Folio. Contemporary limp vellum. Some minor worming with occasional loss, title shaved with loss of imprint, a few other leaves shaved with loss of catchwords. Else very good. A fine, unsophisticated copy of El Inca's history of Peru: a fundamental history of early America, here in its second issue, differing from the first only in its variant titlepage. The second issue of the second part of Garcilaso de la Vega's famous HISTORIA GENERAL... or "Royal Commentaries" which had been published first, a few months earlier in Cordova, in 1616. This issue includes the same text block as the first, with only a variant titlepage with a different and larger vignette of the Virgin, and the words "y à su costa" added to the imprint. The first issue is virtually unobtainable and is known in only two copies (at the Bibliothèque Nationale and the John Carter Brown Library). The text and title for the first issue were probably printed in late 1616, indeed the errata leaf includes the date "12. de Novembre de 1616" and the JCB copy contains both the 1616 and 1617 titlepages. For the present second issue, the 1616 title was cancelled and a new reset titlepage dated 1617 was added to the original printing of the text. The two parts of Vega's history are actually considered to be two separate but complementary works, which were originally published separately. This second "part" is largely concerned with the period between the Spanish conquest and the civil war in the area. The critic, Menendez y Pelayo, called the HISTORIA GENERAL... "the most genuinely American book that has ever been written, and perhaps the only one in which a reflection of the soul of the conquered races has survived." "Like the first part, the second is a commentary rather than a history, for...'El Inca' quotes largely from other writers...always carefully indicating the quotations and naming the authors. But his memory was well stored with anecdotes that he had heard when a boy; and with these he enlivens the narrative" - Winsor, p.569. Garcilaso de la Vega, known as "El Inca," was born in Peru and spent his formative years there, living out his later life in Spain. His father was a Spanish conquistador and a participant in the events that his son chronicles, while his mother was an Inca princess born in Cuzco. "He was a gentleman of refinement and possessed of much learning, speaking Spanish and Quichua from infancy. A descendant of the proud race of the Incas, he was a most industrious and careful historian of the evil fortunes of his race, as well as a chronicler of the victories of the conquerors" - Maggs. Vega's contemporary record of the early Spanish period in Peru is most valuable, as it is based on eyewitness testimony and personal observation.

        A Key of Knowledge for the opening of the secret mysteries of St. Johns mysticall revelation.

      London, Felix Kyngston 1617 - (engraved titlepage, 58) 351 p. Contemporary Leather, 4° (with a new spine underneath the old one. John Bernard 1568-1641 was a Puritan pastor and writer who produced mostly practical works. His most influential work was The Faithfull Shepheard and his practice (1607 and 1621), a handbook for ministers. He also produced several catechisms and a commentary on Revelation. His most popular work The Isle of Man (1627) reached its sixteenth edition in 1683 and was reprinted in the 19th Century. His Faithfull Shepheard rivalled Baxter’s Reformed Pastor and his Isle of Man may have inspired Bunyan’s Holy War. Bernard also wrote against separatism on one hand and prelatic imposition of ceremonies and popery on the other.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Instructie om deuchdelick synen tyt [.] ghemaeckt by den Eerwerdighen heere, Johannes Baptista vanden Bossche, prioor en pater van het Syon [.] int Jaer 1617.

      [No place], 1617. - 8vo. Dutch manuscript on paper. 87 ff., last blank pasted to back cover (collation: A-L8). Interesting devotional manuscript in Dutch containing extensive instructions and rules for behaving, praying and meditating, and living a good religious life in a monastery from hour to hour. The booklet also gives the texts prayers and meditations to perform during the day. It is a sort of "Diurnale" (a shortened Breviary), written by the prior of a monastery ("het Syon"), for his brothers. - Strangely enough the text seems to have been written by a Dutchman from the northern Netherlands where all the monasteries were demolished during the beginning of the Eighty Year's War, and where the Roman-Catholic faith was tolerated at best. "Het Syon" is an often used name for a monastery, for example one near Beverwijck, or near Delft, but, again, these cloisters were no longer in existence. Possibly, Johannes Baptista van den Bossche was a refugee from the north and active in the Southers Netherlands. The manuscript is written in a clear, sophisticated, and almost calligraphical handwriting (by Johannes van den Bossche himself?) in two scripts: italic and a script reminding the civilité type. - Very well preserved.

ChezCharles Martin, ABeauvais 1617, (46) 746pp. (7), relié. - First edition, illustrated with a frontispiece and title of two beautiful figures Bound in brown full morocco late nineteenth signed Capé. Back to Jansenist nerves. Title, place and date of gilt. Large inner frieze. Gilt edges. Very nice copy, particularly fresh. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, illustrée d'un titre-frontispice et de deux belles figures. Impression en italiques. Reliure en plein maroquin brun fin XIXe signé Capé. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre, lieu et date dorés. Large frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Très bel exemplaire, particulièrement frais. Au commencement du XVIIe siècle, et ce sur une période de 30 ans environ, il y eut dans la littérature une passion irraisonnée pour le poème du genre épique dont La Franciade de Ronsard fut une des origines, et on aurait du mal à dénombrer le nombre d'oeuvres dans ce domaine. Remy de Beauvais composa ainsi une épopée sur la vie de Madelaine en 20 livres, au moment de sa conversion. On ne peut qu'être admiratif du travail d'écriture, de la façon dont l'auteur use des Evangiles et reconstitue la vie de Marie-Madelaine, même si c'est en un style bien éloigné du modèle, hyperbolique, souvent emphatique et lyrique. Sur le même sujet et à la même époque, il y eut le Marie-Madelaine de Desmarets, et La Madelaine de Cotin, Les larmes de Saint Madelaine de Charles de Notre Dame, et d'autre encore (L'Italie connut le même sort durant la même période) ; Marie-Madelaine figurant le héros chrétien dont la vie est scandée par deux moments forts, la conversion et la pénitence. La littérature développait ainsi un certain nombre de héros chrétiens plus proches de la pensée spirituelle du XVIIe, elle cherchait à attribuer de grandes oeuvres littéraires à des personnages de la mythologie chrétienne, comme cela avait été fait pour les héros grecs et latins.

Light soiling, mainly marginal, to a few pages, mostly unobtrusive foxing spots, overall a remarkably fresh and clean copy. First edition. A rare work on Japanese?"Western affairs in the early 17th century; it stands as an early source book to the history of Japan. The history spans mostly through the years 1612 ?" 1615, and devotes itself to the progress of the Faith in the region, the Japanese, the causes of the persecution of Christians & converts, and the expulsion of the missionaries ?"with its effects- following the Tokugawa Ieyasu edict of 1614, which ordered the expulsion of the missionaries and marked the beginning of the end of the Christian Church in Japan. The work contains a list of the Christian martyrs from 1574 ?" 1615 and the location of the Jesuit missions in Japan. For Japanese history, this is also a most relevant work, as it is written during the years of the beginning of the Shogunate that would control the country for two centuries, ending a period of unrest and civil war by the different Daimyos.

One of these works, the Schenkelius detectus seu memoria artificialis hactenus occultata was a detailed commentary on Schenckel?s Ars memoriae, a work which Descartes knew well. In the Artificiosae memoriae fundamenta and the Introductio facilis in praxim artificiosae memoriae, Paepp set out to expound the Aristotelian, Ciceronian and Thomist doctrines on memory, but he had also patently been influenced by the Lullist tradition, and was familiar with its most significant exponents, from Bruno to Alsted. Following in the footsteps of Alsted, he fiercely criticized the denigrators of the art, and defended the idea of the interdependence of logic and mnemotechnics: while logic was necessary for some of the arts and disciplines, he argued, memory was indispensable for all forms of knowledge... A substantial part of his work is devoted to a discussion of the doctrines of Bruno...» An interesting collection of four rare works on artificial memory, all in first edition (second issue of the first one). Four titles printed in red and black, 3 finely engr. full - page coat of arms, nine full page text illustrations, and numerous tables and diagrams in the text. Small old stamp and owner's name on title, some mild toning of the paper, but generally a good copy in contemp. vellum, neatly recased.

        Erathosthenes Batavus. De Terrae ambitus vera quantitate.

      Leiden, Iodocus à Colster, 1617. 4to. Completely uncut, in the original interim boards, rebacked in matching paper and with leather cords. A bit of soiling to especially front board. Internally a nice, clean, fresh, and unrestored copy. (12), 263, (1) pp. Illustrated.. Very rare first edition of Snell's seminal magnum opus, in which he founded the modern systematic use of triangulation, thus also founding the modern art of map-making. It is due to his development of triangulation presented in the present work - a method that was used for accurate large-scale land surveying until the rise of global navigation satellite systems in the 1980'ies - that Snell may rightfully be called the father of triangulation. (D.S.B.). Despite Cassini's tables for accurately predicting the motions of Jupiter's moons, which allowed very accurate time measurements to be made, the riddle of longitude still needed another vital piece of information. The size and form of the earth were still uncertain: only one scientific experiment had been conducted to measure its circumference, by Willebrord Snell (1580-1626), in the early years of the seventeenth century.Snellius, as he is better known, was the son of a wealthy professor of mathematics at the University of Leiden in Holland, where young Snell himself studied law. But it was mathematics that intrigued him, and through his studies, he made considerable contributions to science. He is probably best remembered for the optical law of incidence and refraction named for him [which remained unpublished]. However, the most important of his works published in his lifetime was Eratosthenes Batavus, and it revolutionized the science of earth measuring. In 1615, emulating the principles of Eratosthenes 1,900 years before, Snellius had measured the length of a meridian arc by using a chain of thirty-three triangles, observed from the tops of churches, across the fields and hedgerows of the flat Dutch landscape. He had then measured the latitude at the north and south end of his chain of triangles. By calculation, assuming the earth perfectly spherical (as did all philosophers in those days), Snellius worked out a diameter for the earth that was just 3.4 percent smaller than modern values. Although not the first to use triangulation (that claim rightly belongs to Gemma Frisius 60 years earlier), Snell explicated the idea of measuring long distances over the ground by measuring the angles in a chain of triangles rather than by measuring the distance with a surveyor's chain. The method was also far more accurate and significantly speedier than physically measuring directly across the land. Snell's experiments, founded and aided by his patron, Baron Sterrenberg, demonstrated the accuracy of the method and proved conclusively that a framework of stations so developed could be used to control a mapping project. (Edwin Danson, Weighing the World: The Quest to Measure the Earth, pp. 21-22). In 1615, Snell became deeply involved in the determination of the length of the meridian. For his purpose, he selected the method of triangulation that had been used suggested by Gemma Frisius ab. half a century earlier, but Snell developed the method to such an extend that it was able to - for the first time in history - fairly accurately measuring the size of the earth. Snel developed it [i.e. triangulation] to such an extent that he may rightfully be called the father of triangulation (DSB). Starting with his own house, he used the spires of town churches as points of reference and thus, through a net of 33 triangles, computed the distance from Alkmaar to Bergen-op-Zoom (ab. 110 kilometers). The two towns were separated by one degree on the meridian, so from his measurement he was able to calculate a value for the circumference of the earth. His groundbreaking measurements and method were published for the first time in his seminal ''Eratosthenes Batavus (i.e. The Dutch Eratosthenes) in 1617. Snell calculated how the planar formulae could be corrected to allow for the curvature of the earth. He also showed how to resection, or calculate, the position of a point inside a triangle using the angles cast between the vertices at the unknown point. These could be measured much more accurately than bearings of the vertices, which depended on a compass. This established the key idea of surveying a large-scale primary network of control points first, and then locating secondary subsidiary points later, within that primary network.Apart from having discovered what is now know as Snell's law, Snell had also developed the method of determining distances by trigonometric triangulation and thus founded the modern art of mapmaking.

Provenance: Paris, Capuchins(?), early inscription at head of engraved title (cropped); Albin Ser[ai?]n - long signed note on front flyleaf, signature partially deleted.*** Only edition of a stupefyingly long poem on Mary Magdalene by an otherwise unknown Capucin friar and poetaster. The history of the work is provided in a preface to the reader by Marie de Longueval, a noblewoman and friend of the scribbling friar, who was probably her confessor. Mme. de Longueval had requested of Father Rémi a few verses on la Madeleine for her own diversion, and after a couple of initial sonnets in the light vein that she expected, the sonnets kept coming, and coming, and an epic work took shape, eventually reaching 20 books, of non-stop alexandrines. At Mme. de Longueval?'s request Rémi gave her his manuscripts. Originally written only for her, and for a small circle of friends, the work was too great, in her view, to keep from the public, and she feared that the manuscript could be lost or damaged, sitting in her cabinet ?"among her rings,?" so she persuaded the friar to let her publish it. The same circle of friends, no doubt, contributed laudatory verses, praising the monster as a masterpiece. Though inspired stylistically by Ronsard and the poets of the Pléiade, Rémi de Beauvais lacked their genius. A German scholar, Paul Dittmer, who analyzed this obscure work (the subject of his doctoral thesis) in an even more obscure publication, describes Rémi?'s endless, obsessive detours into dusty by-ways of erudition, his helpless use of onomatopoeias to fill out his lines, and his waves of empty words, which finally suffocate his readers and turn his sincere attempts at reverence into silly parodies. Not surprisingly, in spite of the colorful promise of its subject, the medieval Magdalene legend being filled with lonely sea-voyages, mass conversions, years in a cave in the south of France, and flying angels, Remi?'s oeuvre was soon forgotten. Luckily, it is illustrated. Most fetching is the engraving, signed by Martin Baes or Bass (cf. Thieme-Becker 2:348), of the Cappadocia-like mountains of the Sainte-Baume with the Saint?'s grotto, her soul being carried aloft by a pair of angels. The title appears also to be by Baes. The other plate, showing the penitent Magdalene, is unsigned. There appear to be different states of the edition: the Harvard copy has an errata leaf at the end, apparently not present in most copies, and the number of engravings seem to vary, with some copies having only one plate (Harvard) plus the title or no plates (Huntington), others with 3 plates (Mazarine, which also has a copy with 9 plates, described as by Jacques Grandhomme).

Siebzehnter Jahresbericht über die Städtische Realschule zu Magdeburg (Magdeburg 1907),1-10.
