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 This manuscript was unpublished at the time, but several copies were in circulation and served as the basis for all the biographies of Anchieta.?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.

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.

OUVRAGE PRÉCIEUX, tant pour l'histoire, que pour l'histoire des institutions de France, la linguistique et l'étymologie. (Brunet, IV, 407). «Ni synthèse, ni reconstitution chronologique, l'ouvrage est une somme de points de détail et de réflexions personnelles à l'instar des "Essais" - un prototype en quelque sorte, car le premier Livre des "Recherches" parut dès 1560. Evocation de telle figure historique, analyse de tel dicton, origine de telle coutume, histoire de la Pléiade et des combats pour la langue française, etc. Avec, en toile de fond, une préoccupation quasi obsessionnelle ; la réhabilitation des "anciennetez" gauloises, la défense et l'illustration de la langue et des traditions nationales.

Grotius, Hugo.
Excudit Ioannes Patius, 1617. In this work Grotius deals with the nature of sin and its redemption; in doing so, he critiques the Socinian stand on the matter and avoids totally the arguments "de gratia et praedestinatione." Specifically addressed here is Faustus Socinus's De Jesu Christi servatore. This is the second edition, printed the same year as the first and by the same printer. Both the first and this second edition are little held in the U.S.: We trace three copies of the first and three of the second, one of which has been deaccessioned. Provenance: Three 18th-century ownership inscriptions on title-page: Jehoua Portis, Lib. Richbach, and Joh[ann]is Buys. 19th-century pressure-stamps of a Pennsylvania theological library, deaccessioned.

Meshovius, Arnold.
apud Gerhard Grevenbruch, 1617. Meshovius (1591-1667) was an orthodox Catholic theologian and professor at the University of Cologne. His history of the Anabaptists covers the period to 1536 and is heavily based on the contemporary anti-Anabaptist writings of Bullinger, Cochläus, Oecolampadius, Luther, Zwingli, and Melanchthon, but also on works of his own contemporaries like Ubbo Emmius. The work is printed in a small roman type, dense on the page within a ruled border, with side- and shouldernotes. There are occasional woodcut historiated initials and head- and tailpieces.

Amstelodami: Excudebat Joannes Janssonius, 1617. Vellum. Very good. Folio (36 cm) Contemporary vellum repaired. Collation: [4], [45] leaves +engraved portrait and 40 plates on 39 leaves (one folding) The binding has been repaired and plate A supplied in from another copy. Front end papers replaced. The title page has been cleaned and repaired. The text and plates have been re-sewn and rebound. The male genetalia have been rubbed or scrapped off one of the plates, only affecting the top of the paper. The remaining plates are generally very good with some minor cropping not affecting images.This is an imitation of Thomas Geminus’s compendium of the Fabrica and the Epitome, with the same copper plates used by Jacob Baumann with Latin inscriptions in place of the German. The copper title page has two skeletons as shield bearers, below the dissection and anatomic demonstration. This is a scarce title of Vesalius’s work with fine engravings for a number of major plates found in the Fabrica. (Choulant, p.195; Cushing VI.D-12; Waller 9919).

London: John Browne. 1617. "First edition of the first book printed by subscription, large folio, pp. [16], [1]-[544], [188]; full contemporary calf, gilt arms of Charles the I central on the covers, rebacked in sturdy brown morocco gilt; covers rubbed and worn, text occasionally browned and spotted, paper occasionally limp, with a few natural paper flaws; generally a good, sound copy of the preferred first edition (which included two languages, Welsh and Portuguese, dropped from later editions), without the rare subscriber's list, issued separately. A prospectus preceded the publication of the dictionary, and is known by a single copy only (at the Bodleian Library). With Minsheu we have arrived at what has usually been regarded as the true beginning of subscription publication, and the first book prospectus. Minsheu's Guide was published in 1617, with a printed list of subscribers which was eventually to reach a total of 471 persons and institutions. Its issue preceded that of the book, and thus The Guide is the first book published by subscription after the issue of a prospectus (see Feather, English Book Prospectuses: An Illustrated History, Newton & Minneapolis, 1984, pp. 26-27). Minsheu's earlier works on the Spanish language had secured for him a reputation as a lexicographer, if not an income; this great lexicon stands alone as a guide to Elizabethan English, still useful today. Appended to the work, as issued, is Minsheu's A Most Copious Spanish Dictionarie with Latine and English, London, 1617.

London: by William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1617. Small folio (287 x 188 mm) in sixes. Later, probably 18th-century reversed calf, covers with gilt and blind rules, skilfully rebacked with original spine laid down, red morocco label, lacks ties. Some rubbing, corners bumped, previous owner's neat ink notations on front endpapers. Very good. Third edition of Purchas's first published compilation of travel literature, first published in 1613. By this time Purchas had already become acquainted with Richard Hakluyt, his great predecessor in the memorializing of English travel narratives, who lent books and some manuscripts for the expanded second edition, published in 1614. A later edition was published in 1626. Despite being published first, this volume is sometimes shelved as a supplement to the four folio volumes of Hakluytus Posthumus, or, Purchas his Pilgrimes (1624-5).
