nbsp; Valencienne [Valencia] - Iean Veruliet, 1617 Book. Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A scarce first edition of Antoine Alar's most famous work on the Virgin Mary. Antoine Alar (1575-1628) was an ecclesiastical writer born in Valencia. After taking the habit of Dominicain in his hometown in 1600, he acquired, a reputation for eloquence and zeal in his preaching. What makes Alar far more interesting, however, are his mystical works such as this one,Les Allumettes d'amour du Iardin Delicieux de la Confrairie du S. Rosaire de la Vierge Marie. it is of particular interest to bibliophiles due to its strange style and odd title. In French. Monastic bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: In a vellum binding.

Overall a clean, unsophisticated copy. - Wheeler Gift 55; Honeyman 2864; Norman 1963; DSB XII, 500 - FIRST EDITION OF SNEL'S FUNDAMENTAL WORK IN THE SCIENCE OF GEODESY AND OF GREAT IMPORT IN THE HISTORY OF NAVIGATION. In this work Snel outlines the principles of a new method for determining the length of the arc of the meridian by triangulation. "In 1615 he became deeply involved in the determination of the length of the meridian, selecting for this work the method of triangulation, first proposed by Gemma Frisius in 1533 and also used by Tycho. Snel developed it to such an extent that he may rightfully be called the father of triangulation. Starting with his house... he used the spires of town churches as points of reference. Thus, through a net of triangles, he computed the distance from Alkmaar to Bergen-op-Zoom (around 130 kilometers). The two towns lie on approximately the same meridian. Snel used the distance from Leiden to Zoeterwoude (about 5 kilometers) as a baseline. His instruments were made by Blaeu" (DSB). From the mean of these two measurements Snel calculated the length of a degree to be 352,347 feet, a more … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOEHNEYSS, Georg Engelhard von
Title within fine & decorative woodcut border & 16 double-page woodcut plates (each within an elaborate woodcut border). Printed tables in the text. 11 p.l., 343 pp. Folio, cont. vellum over boards (upper cover with two small defects, some browning as is usual due to the quality of the paper), ties gone. Zellerfeld: [Privately Printed for the Author], 1617. First edition and a fine copy of this classic of mining and assaying. Printed on the author's private press, this the third of the great early illustrated treatises on the subjects, following Agricola and Ercker. Löhneyss (1552-1625?), was inspector general of the mines of Zellerfeld, Clausthal, and Andreasberg. After having a fight with a publisher, Löhneyss established his own private printing press; this is the first and only book printed at Zellerfeld. He designed the plates, woodcuts, and initials, employing Moses Thym as engraver of the cuts. His books are considered masterpieces of typography; most copies, however, were destroyed during the Thirty Years War. "One of the artistically most precious, but also one of the rarest books on mining is the first edition of Georg Engelhard Löhneyss, Report on Mines...The book was printed in the author's own printing shop at Zellerfeld in the Harz Mountains and appeared first in 1617...The splendid woodcut plates of the Zellerfeld editions were, according to Nagler, designed by Moses Thym."-W.

ALCUIN (ALKUIN ALBINUS), B. FLACCUS.
Luteriae Parisiorum (Paris) : Ex officina Nivelliana, sumptibus S. Cramoisy, 1617 Folio. Contemp., richly blindtooled pigskin over wood, raised bands, remains of clasps. Engraved portrait of Alcuin facing titlepage, printed on verso of halftitle. Titlepage in red/black with large woodcut device. (46),1896 coloumns (=948 pp.),(24) pp. Occasionally a faint dampstain to lower margins, mostly to Index-leaves. From the library of the Benedictine Monastery "Benediktbeuern" south of Munich. On titlepage in old hand "Monasterij Benedictoburanj." and on htitle "Iste Liber est Monasterij Benechten..." ? ¶ The scarce first edition of Alcuin's "Opera".Alcuin is the most prominent figure of the Carolingian Renaissance, in which three main periods have been distinguished: in the first of these, up to the arrival of Alcuin at the court, the Italians occupy a central place; in the second, Alcuin and the Anglo-Saxons are dominant; in the third (from 804), the influence of Theodulf, the Visigoth is preponderant.We owe to him, too, manuals used in his educational work - a grammar and works on rhetoric and dialectics. They are written in the form of dialogues and in two of them the interlocutors are Charlemagne and Alcuin. He wrote several theological treatises: a De fide Trinitatis, commentaries on the Bible, etc.Alcuin transmitted to the Franks the knowledge of Latin culture which had existed in Ango-Saxon England. A number of his works still exist. His letters and his poetry are equally interesting. Besides some graceful epistles in the style of Venantius Fortunatus, he wrote some long poe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venice: Appresso il Sessa, 1617. Second edition. Good. A Good copy of Durante's famous herbal, in a contemporary vellum binding with noticeable wear and soiling. Collation: [10], 492, [52]. Lacking title page. Signatures: +5, A-Rr6, Ss-Tt8, Vv6, Xx4. Pages with marginal tears and a few with loss to text, overall age toning, stains and soiling. Text in Italian. Second edition of Durante's herbal, with 965 woodcuts in text, enlarged with the suite of 110 woodcuts at the end which had not appeared in the first edition (1585). The woodcuts are based on Fuchs and Mattioli, although many include charming genre scenes. The plant descriptions are written in the form of poems which Arber describes as 'pleasingly unscientific.' The Linnean genus Duranta, formerly Castorea, is named after the author (Hunt). Good.

Beretario, Sebastian; Anchieta, Joseph
A fundamental and early work on Brazilian Jesuit Missions; one of the first Jesuit Priests to work in Brazil. 1617. Cologne. Johannes Kinchium. In 12vo (131 mm x 75 mm). 1 [blank] + 2 ff. + 427 [428] + 1 ff. + 1 [blank]. Contemporary or near contemporary vellum, ties as fragments, gently soiled. A fine copy, some leaves browned as expected. Although printed the same year as the Lyon edition, Leclerc states that this is the second edition; it could also be a second issue. Father Anchieta (1534 ? 1597) was a Canarian Jesuit Priest and writer; after short studies in Portugal, and being only 19 years old, he was selected to travel to the Jesuit missions in Brazil, accompanying Duarte da Costa. Before making shore they shipwrecked, but still Anchieta was able to make shore at Sao Vicente, which allowed him to have contact with the Tapuia Indians who were natives of the region. Furthermore, he is considered as one of the founders of Sao Paulo, in 1554, and Rio de Janeiro, in 1565 (after the defeat of the French settlers). His labor in the catechesis and conversion of the Indians into the Catholic faith ?along with Nóbrega-, was crucial to the establishment of a colonial settlement in the country. The work is ?based on the manuscript by Father Pedro Rodrigues, visiting Father to Angola and Brazil. This manuscript was unpublished at the time, but several copies were in circulation and served as the basis for all the biographies of Anchieta.? Borba de Moraes, 99. Rodriguez, 379. Leclerc, 1558.

MORYSON, FYNES
London: Printed by John Beale, 1617. FIRST EDITION. This is the first edition of an early English-language combination of travelogue (Part I), military history (Part II), and guide for tourists (Part III), written by someone who had by his own admission longed from his childhood to see the world. After matriculating at Cambridge and becoming a fellow of the college, Moryson (1565/6-1630) received permission to suspend his fellowship while he travelled abroad through the Low Countries, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, the Eastern Mediterranean, Jerusalem, Tripoli, Antioch, and Constantinople. According to the DNB, "he was fluent in German, Italian, Dutch, and French, and his linguistic ability served him well in regions where an Englishman might expect to meet hostility: he generally posed as German or Dutch in the more dangerous states in Italy, adopting a second cover as a Frenchman when visiting Cardinal Bellarmine at the Jesuit college in Rome" and so on, his disguises also including Bohemian and Polish attire. The first part of this book is a detailed account of those travels, reporting on the routes he travelled, evaluating the accommodations available, enumerating the amounts of time and money expended, and critiquing the "must-see" sights of the various locales. In the second part, Moryson deals with the years 1599-1602, which he spent in Ireland. There, he acted as secretary to Lord Mountjoy, commander of the English troops fighting the uprising of Irish chieftains known as the Nine Years' War or Tyrone's Rebellion. The final, and perh … [Click Below for Full Description]
