Flacius Illyricus, Matthias
Basileae: Per Sebastianum Henripetri, 1617. Folio. Editio ultima. Latin text. 2 volumes in 1. with two title pages, the second title page is from the printer Sebastian Henric Petri 1546-1627. Both volumes have extensive indexes including separate Scripture references. Matthias Flacius Illyricus (1520-1573) was born in Bosnia and after his studies in Venice transferred to Wittenberg where he studied both Greek and Hebrew where Luther made him Professor of Hebrew. It was his deep understanding of the Old Testament where he developed a system of hermeneutics that anticipated Lutheran scholarship in the 16th through the 18th Century. In short, he felt the knowledge of the text was essential and prior to dogmatics. He was one of the great intellects of the German Reformation and while unifying serious Lutheran scholarship he paved the way toward the Formula of Concord (1577). Although he emphasized the attention to scholarship, he felt the ultimate principle was to facilitate a clear understanding of Scripture to the layman. Bound in original vellum fully decorated in blind, raised bands, title to one compartment in brown ink, small tear to vellum near head corners quite worn, two spots of chipping to board edges, first few leaves with edges chipped., some toning or foxing to leaves. A very good copy.

Ptolemy/Giovanni Magini Claudius
Artist: Ptolemy/Giovanni Magini Claudius ca ; date: ca1617 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 13 x 16,5; - description: Map shows total Arabia, partly the red sea and the Persian Gulf.; - vita of the artist: Giovanni Antonio Magini was an italian Astronomer and Mathematician. In 1592 he issued "De Planis Triangulis" by describing the Quadrant. Magini also maufactured an atlas of Italy which has been issued by his son in 1620. The moon craterMagnius was named after Magini. Claudius Ptolemy ( arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

Jahrhunderts, Bibliotheksschild, Titel verso mit Bibl.-Stempel, etwas gebräunt. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. "Bernardino de Mendoza (* 1540; 1604) war ein spanischer Diplomat und Schriftsteller. Nach Beendigung seines Studiums an der Universität Alcala (1557) ging Mendoza in die Armee und nahm an den Mittelmeerfeldzügen teil. Fernando Alvarez de Toledo, Herzog von Alba verwendete ihn 1567 für diplomatischer Mission in Italien und betraute ihn auch mit wichtigen militärischen Befehlsposten in den Niederlanden (1572-74). Mendozas erster Besuch in England fand 1574 statt. Er kehrte 1578 dorthin als ständiger Botschafter des spanischen König Philipp II. zurück und befasste sich in den nächsten sechs Jahren mit den inneren Angelegenheiten des Landes, unterstützte Jesuiten, die sich heimlich im Land aufhielten sowie die Anhänger der schottischen Königin Maria I. Stuart. Er stand auch mit Verschwörern gegen Königin Elisabeth I. Tudor in Verbindung. Als er 1584 wegen seiner Verwicklung in den Throckmorton Verschwörung ausgewiesen wurde, fasste Philipp II. das als persönliche Beleidigung auf. Mendoza wurde daraufhin nach Frankreich gesandt (1584-91), wo er ein glühender Anhänger der Katholische Liga wurde. Nach dem Sieg des französischen König Heinrich IV. kehrte er nach Spanien zurück, erblindete dann und verbrachte seine letzten Lebensjahre in einem Kloster, wo er schrieb und übersetzte.

SPECTACULAR COPPER PLATES OF GLADIATORS & ROMAN AMPHITHEATERS, COINS - Early printings of five separate works by Lipsius. Contained are his works on instructions and depictions of gladiators, amphitheaters (fighting arenas, etc.), coins, historiography of ancient libraries, and the leading unfinished essay, a universal history. This universal history "concentrated on such non-political, non-chronological topics as finance, population, Roman architecture, and statuary." (Tournoy p.236). "Based primarily on the writings of classical Greek and Roman authors, it surveyed the libraries of antiquity by describing their locations, buildings, storage methods, and, to a small extent, their contents. Since it would become a prototype of general library histories for the next 250 years . . ." – Walker.

Deux volumes in-folio en plein veau brun, dos orné de fleurons, pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge, tranches rougies. Page de titre bicolore rouge et noir, intérieur frais orné de cul de lampes et marques d'imprimeurs. Quelques manques en coiffes supérieures et inférieur ainsi que sur les plats. Edition augmentée. On peut soutenir que la vie sexuelle de l'Occident catholique a été organisé, codifié et en tout cas minutieusement décrit par un jésuite espagnol, le père Thomas Sanchez, né à Cordoue en 1550, mort à Grenade 1610. Ce casuiste passa toute sa vie à la rédaction et à la correction d'un ouvrage célèbre, Disputationes de sancto matrimonii sacramento, que l'on cite souvent sous une forme abrégée, De matrimonio. Cet ouvrage savant était destiné à tous les confesseurs et à tous les directeurs de conscience e contenait en matière sexuelle, tous les cas, toutes les variations possibles qui pouvaient se présenter à leur sagacité. Sanchez avait amassé une documentation prodigieuse et il s'efforçait de n'omettre aucune espèce de péché, aucun détail pouvant aider le confesseur. De là l'obscénité extraordinaire de son œuvre, qui est au demeurant, un livre de base, souvent cité et imité par d'autres ecclésiastiques comme père Billuart et le célèbre monseigneur Bouvier, auteur de Manuel des confesseurs. On raconte que père Sanchez, constamment assailli, et pour cause, d'im … [Click Below for Full Description]

KEPLER, Johannes.
Linz: Johannes Plank, [1617-1619]. First edition. Hardcover. <p>First edition, very rare and with an exceptional royal provenance, of Kepler's <em>Ephemerides </em>for the years 1617-1620. These were the first tables of astronomical data calculated by Kepler on the basis of the new celestial mechanics he had published in <em>Astronomia nova</em> (1609), and also the first calculated using logarithms, preceding by a decade the <em>Tabulae Rudolphinae</em> (1627). The accuracy and reliability of Kepler's ephemerides greatly surpassed those of other ephemerides of the time; as a result, the Copernican doctrine gained in esteem, and it was more and more accepted that it was not just a new and useful mathematical hypothesis, but a reflection of reality. In his important introductions to the tables, Kepler discusses sunspots (including his claim to have been the first of the century to observe them), his lunar theory, the application of logarithms (the ephemeris of 1620 is dedicated to their inventor, Napier), the <em>camera obscura </em>(which for Kepler was of great importance to astronomy), the final chapter in Kepler's relations with the friend-turned-critic David Fabricius, and many other topics of the greatest interest in the history of science. "Already in 1609, at the time his <em>Astronomia nova</em> appeared, Kepler had formulated the plan of publishing ephemerides giving daily positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets for eighty years, beginning in 1582 with Tycho's first systematic observations of the planets; the calculated positions would be derived from Tycho's obse … [Click Below for Full Description]
