      Paris, P. Le Mur, 1618. 1618 1 vol. in-8° (179 x 120 mm.) de [12] ff. (Titre; Epistre, Au Lecteur, Table des chapitres), 994 pp. 1 planche dépliante. Plein vélin d'époque, dos lisse titré à l'encre brune. Rare première édition parisienne de la traduction française donnée par le neveu de lauteur, D. F. de Riquebourg-Trigault (EO, latine : Augsbourg, 1615, 1ère française : Lyon, 1616) de cet ouvrage fondateur pour la découverte par les Européens de la civilisation chinoise. Son auteur, le jésuite Nicolas Trigault (1577-1628), obtint de ses supérieurs la permission daller en qualité de missionnaire en Chine où il arriva en 1610, date de la mort de son prédécesseur Matteo Ricci, auteur de la majeure partie du texte. A son arrivée en 1582, le Père Ricci avait compris que la seule façon dévangéliser les Chinois était dadopter au maximum leur mode de vie. Il avait donc appris le mandarin, pris un nom chinois, sétait rapproché de lécole confucianiste et avait étudié les sciences et la littérature chinoise. Ainsi avait-il obtenu lautorisation de sinstaller près de Canton, puis à Nanchang en 1595, à Nanjing en 1599 pour enfin obtenir la permission impériale de sétablir à Pékin en 1601 où il résida jusqu'à sa mort. Pendant cette décennie, il gagna la confiance de lempereur Ming qui apprécia autant les efforts que le jésuite avait fait pour simprégner de la culture chinoise, que sa patience pour lui enseigner les sciences occidentales et le christianisme. Cest pendant cette période quil rédigea en italien son histoire de lintroduction du christianisme en Chine, manuscrit que le Père Trigault traduisit en latin, ainsi quune partie de son journal à partir desquels il établit le présent ouvrage, qui parut pour la première fois en 1515 à Rome et à Augsbourg sous le titre « De Christiana expeditione ». Trigault a enrichi le travail de Ricci de divers écrits dont le rapport du séjour en Chine des jésuites portugais Longobardo, Vagnone et Cattaneo ainsi que dextraits des « lettres annuelles » de 1610 et 1611 du père Sabatino de Ursis mais aussi de ses propres commentaires et observations. Sa publication fut un véritable choc en Europe : aucun ouvrage aussi pertinent et documenté sur la Chine navait été édité auparavant et il fut rapidement traduit en français, en allemand, en espagnol et en italien. Il ouvrait une porte sur cet empire qui était resté fermé depuis Marco Polo et alors que le Père Ricci avait introduit Euclide en Chine, son journal apportait la philosophie de Confucius à lEurope. Ainsi, le travail de ces deux pères jésuites eut une influence incontestable sur la vie culturelle et la philosophie occidentale, louvrant sur un monde encore inconnu : les Européens réalisèrent alors quil existait une autre grande civilisation sur la planète. Louvrage comprend une planche repliée gravée sur bois avec le Plan du palais des faux-bourgs donné à la Compagnie de Iesus à Pequin par le Roy de la Chine lan 1610 . Bel exemplaire de ce texte fondamental. 1 vol. 8vo. 1 folding plate. Contemporary vellum. Rare first Parisian edition (Latin OE: 1615) of one of the most important and earliest works on China ever published in Europe. It contains the diary of the pioneer Jesuit missionary in China, Matteo Ricci (1552-1610), edited and brought up-to-date by Ricci's successor to the Chinese Mission, the Flemish Jesuit Nicolas Trigault (1577-1628). Trigault translated Ricci's manuscript into Latin, and enlarged it with information from other sources, such as the reports by the Portugese Jesuits Longobardo, Vagnone and Cattaneo of their own stays in China, with extracts from the usual annual letters for the years 1610 and 1611 by Father Sabatino de Ursis, etc., as well as by his own comments and observations. When Trigault's book was published it shook Europe. Never before had such well organized and accurate information about China been available. It opened the door to China which had been closed since Marco Polo, and just like Ricci had introduced Euclid to China, so his journal introduced Confucius to Europe. Ricci and Trigault's account of China was undoubtedly most influencial on cultural life and philosophical thought in Europe, opening up a new, mysterious and until then virtually unknown world. Suddenly Europe became aware for the first time of the existence of another highly civilized vast part of the globe. The French translation was made by Trigault's nephew, Riquebourg-Trigault, physician to Philippe Guillaume of Orange. Fine copy. Cordier, Sinica, 810 - Morrison II, 258- Feller, XII p 192. (Conforme à la collation de l'exemplaire de la BSG).

        Americae Nova Tabula

      1618. Una delle più famose e ricercate carte dell'America del diciassettesimo secolo. La famosa opera di Blaeu viene considerata una delle vette della produzione cartografica olandese. Quando venne data alle stampe la prima volta come stampa sciolta, nel 1618, la carta riassumeva tutte le più aggiornate informazioni cartografiche dell'epoca e fu considerata un importante punto di riferimento per la produzione di altre carte fino alla metà del secolo. L'editore, Willem Janszoon, adottò il nome di Blaeu per evitare confusione con Jan Janszoon e modificò il suo nome nel terzo stato della carta, a partire dal 1621. I pannelli decorativi ai lati includono vivide rappresentazioni dei nativi americani con i loro costumi provenienti da Virginia, Florida, California (Nove Albions) e altre aree. I pannelli lungo il margine superiore riportano vedute di nove città, tra cui Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City e Havana. La California è ancora raffigurata come una penisola e solo uno dei Grandi Laghi è riportato. Le colonie in via di sviluppo sono raffigurate lungo i confini costieri orientali, i Francesi in Canada e gli Inglesi in Virginia (l'accampamento di Jamestown). La carta riporta anche le scoperte di ulteriori esplorazioni da arte degli Spagnoli lungo la California. Bibliografia: Burden 189; Tooley, Mapping of America, pl. 169. Dimensioni 550x410. One of the best known and sought after seventeenth century maps of America. Blaeu's famous carte a figure map of America is regarded as a high point in Dutch cartography. When first published, around 1618 as a separate issue, the map summarised the most up - to - date cartography and influenced numerous other map publications until mid - century. The publisher, Willem Janszoon, adopted the name Blaeu to avoid confusion with Jan Janszoon and altered his own name on the 3rd state of the map beginning in 1621. The decorative side panels include vivid representations of Native Americans from Virginia, Florida, California (Nove Albions) and other areas in characteristic dress. The panels across the top border offer nine city views including Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City and Havana. California is still shown as a peninsula: only one Great Lake is seen. Developing colonies can be seen along the eastern seaboard of North America, the French in Canada and the English in Virginia (the Jamestown settlement). The results of further exploration by the Spanish along the California coast are also cited on the map. Bibliografia: Burden 189; Tooley, Mapping of America, pl. 169.

        Opera Omnia. : Bucolica, Georgica, Aeneis; Ciris et Culex: Cum Commentario Frid. Taubmanni. Curate & edente Christiano Taubmanno Frid. F. Additi sunt Indices necessari.

      (Wittenberg), Zacharias Schurerus, 1618. 4to. Bound in a lovely, charming contemporary 3/4 pigskin binding, richly blindtamped to boards - undoubtedly the book's first binding. The binding is dated in the front board - 1620 - and is with the initials of the the original owner "CFRH", namely Christian Frideric Reich(h)elm from Halle in Saxony, who has written his full name and acquisition details to the title-page, stating that the book was bought by him in 1620 (same year as it was bound) and the price that he paid for it. A bit of wear to extremities, but all in all very nice. Woodcut title-vignettes to all three title-pages. A few neat underlinings in the text. A very nice and clean copy with only mild occasional brownspotting. (24), 1064, (78 - indices and errata) pp., 1 blank + 147, (1), (30, -index) pp., 1 blank + 72, (24, -index) pp.. A truly charmning copy, in a dated contemporary binding, of Christain Taubmann's excellent and highly praised Virgil-edition, containing all three parts, the last two of which were also issued separately. The work is praised for Taubmann's excellent corrections and commentaries and also contains his very useful index. Like the owner of the book, Christain Friedrich Reichhelm, Christian Taubmann (1597-1651) was also a noted German jurist. In fact, the two were almost exact contemporaries, Reichmann having been born five years after Taubmann, who died one year after Reichmann. Generally speaking, the two had much in common. The present work was made by the then only 21-year-old jurist and is among his earliest works.Christian Friedrich Reichhelm was a jurist and an author from a good family in Halle. He was born in 1602 and died in 1650. The book was thus acquired (and bound) by him at the age of 18.The main part of the Virgil-text (Bucolica, Georgica, Aeneis) is that of Estienne, whereas the Ciris is based on that of Scaliger and Barth, and the Culex on two old editions mainly corrected by Taubmann's father.

        Tractatus secundus de naturae simia seu technica macrocosmi historia in partes undecim divisa.

      - Oppenheim, J. Th. de Bry u. H. Galler, 1618. Folio. 408 S., S. 413-788, 6 Bl. (das letzte weiß), 1 ungez. Bl. nach S. 272 (so komplett). Mit illustriertem Kupfertitel von Matthäus Merian (in Paginierung enthalten), 5 doppelblattgr. Kupfertafeln, 205 teils ganzseit. Textkupfern von de Bry u. Merian sowie zahlr. Textholzschnitten. Pergament d. Zeit (angestaubt u. berieben, obere Ecke des Vorderdeckels abgestoßen, Vorsätze erneuert). Erste Ausgabe. - Aus dem großen enzyklopädischen Werk des englischen Arztes und Rosenkreuzers Robert Fludd, in dem er das gesamte Wissen im Sinne einer Entsprechungslehre von Makro- und Mikrokosmos zusammenzustellen suchte. Das Werk erschien unter dem Gesamttitel: Utriusque cosmi majoris scilicet et minoris metaphysica, physica atque technica historia. Es besteht insgesamt aus zwei Teilen (Makro-, Mikrokosmos) zu je zwei Bänden. Der vorliegende zweite Band des ersten Teils behandelt die Gebiete Arithmetik, Musik, Geometrie, Optik, Malerei, Kriegs- und Befestigungswesen, Mechanik, Zeitmessung, Kosmographie (Himmels- und Erdbeschreibung), Astrologie und Geomantie. Es handelt sich also im wesentlichen um die Mathematik und ihre Anwendungsgebiete, die hier im Sinne einer christlichen Kabbala behandelt werden: "Fludd constantly attacked Aristotle, Galen, and the universities, which to him seemed dedicated to preserving the authority of the ancients. He sought instead a new understanding of nature based on Christian principles. His guides were primarily the Mosaic books of the Bible and the Hermetic and Neoplatonic works of late antiquity and the Renaissance" (DSB). Eine zentrale Stellung kommt dem zweiten Abschnitt über die Musik zu. Seine Bedeutung liegt weniger auf musiktheoretischem als vielmehr auf metaphysisch-spekulativem Gebiet. In der Tradition der Antike sah Fludd in den musikalischen Zahlenverhältnissen Symbole der kosmischen Ordnung. "Da sich ein großer Teil seiner Schriften der Aufgabe widmet, die scheinbaren Widersprüche der Erscheinungswelt auf ein einigendes Prinzip zurückzuführen, bildet die Musik als Versinnlichung jener Zahlenproportionen einen wesentlichen Bestandteil seiner Philosophie, ja, sie ist geradezu das einigende Prinzip selbst oder mindestens dessen Abbild . Wie mit seiner Philosophie Jakob Böhme, so hat Fludd mit seiner kosmologischen Systematik und der Rolle, die er darin die Musik spielen lässt, die deutschen Musiktheoretiker tief und lange beeinflusst" (RGG IV, 440 f). - Laut Titel stammen die Kupferillustrationen zum Werk von de Bry, doch steuerte Matthäus Merian d.Ä. neben dem illustrierten Kupfertitel zahlreiche weitere Illustrationen bei. - DSB V, 48: "the most detailed works on the macrocosm-microcosm universe in the early seventeenth century"; Gardner, Rosicrucian books 218; Thorndike VII, 439; Duveen 222; Zinner 4636; Wüthrich, Merian II, S. 82; Benzing, J. Th. de Bry etc. als Verleger u. Drucker zu Oppenheim, in AGB IX, 616,82; vgl. Caillet II, 4041 f: "Traité fort rare et très recherché .

Ein Teil seiner bedeutenden Bibliothek wurde 1835 in London versteigert (vgl. ADB 16, 228). - Gebräunt u. stellenw. etwas braunfleckig.

Una variante del titolo con cui possiamo trovare il libro è ?Peregrini nei errores di patria? e un'edizione successiva è quella di Helmstedt del 1665. Nel 1614 comparve a Cassel, in Germania, il manifesto base di un misterioso movimento mistico e occultistico, denominato Confraternita dei Rosa + Croce. Sempre fra il 1614 e il 1616, partirono dalla Germania altri tre ?manifesti?: la ?Fama Fraternitatis?, la ?Confessio? e le ?Nozze Chimiche di Christian Rosenkreutz?. I manifesti fanno riferimento a una supposta società segreta e parlano di un misterioso adepto, Christian Rosenkreutz, che avrebbe conseguito le più alte iniziazioni e avrebbe lasciato nel suo sepolcro, nascosto nella Foresta Nera, tutto quanto i saggi antichi avevano saputo in tema di alchimia, sapienza esoterica e occultismo. L'impatto di questi manifesti, dato il diffuso interesse dell'epoca verso l'occultismo, sarà tanto forte che personaggi tutt'altro che secondari si metteranno alla ricerca della misteriosa confraternita nella speranza di esservi ammessi; fra questi anche il filosofo francese René Descartes (1596 - 1650), che sarà sospettato perfino (forse a torto) di avere latinizzato il suo nome in Renatus Cartesius per dare un segnale esoterico ai elusivi fratelli, con le sue nuove iniziali, R e C come Rosa - Croce. Nessuno trova i Rosacroce che, in un certo senso, non esistono. I manifesti sono un'opera letteraria, creata ?" con altri ?" da un pastore luterano del Württemberg, Johann Valentin Andreae (Herrenberg, nello stato tedesco del Württemberg, 17 agosto 1586 - 1654), interessato a presentare, sotto il velame esoterico, un ambizioso progetto di riforma politico ?" religiosa, e l'unico di cui, pur non avendo firmato le sue opere, possiamo affermarne la certa paternità. I Rosacroce diverranno realtà: coloro che erano partiti alla ricerca della confraternita si organizzano in circoli e conventicole, influenzano la trasformazione della massoneria da corporazione operativa in società speculativa, creano una cultura di notevole influenza sulla costruzione di un'Europa moderna insieme ?preilluminista? e ?illuminata? nel senso esoterico del termine. L'Europa protestante ne farà la bandiera per una coalizione di tutte le forze ?illuminate? d'Europa contro la chiesa cattolica della Controriforma e contro gli Asburgo. Il libro del Valentin, a contenuto filosofico ermetico elenca e discute i 52 errori che, secondo lo stesso Valentin, sono stati diffusi nel paese: Peregrinus, Caro, Impulso, Philautia, Fortuna, Vicissitudines, Mendacium, Libri, malum, Politici, Binarius, Bar, Tenebre, Spiritus vertiginis, Mercenarii, Vanitas, Lavoro, Operae, Venere, Mulieres, Aula, Licentiosi, Fama, Literae, Arcana, Prothei, philosophia, Schola, Aristoteles, Gladiatores, Numa, Idola, Zoroastro, Praestigiae, Diogene, Stupidi, Epicuro, Moria, Antichristus, Haereses, Tempus, Scene, Peregrinatio, Turba, Ingenium, Somnia, Opinio, Linguae, Terra, Opes, Sathan, Mundus.

        America rare map - Hondius/Janssonius, 1641.

      "America Noviter Delineata"This important map was first published in 1618 by Jodocus Hondius. Cartographically, this map influenced a generation of cartographers and was the basis of understanding the Americas for the first half of the 17th century.When first issued the map was surrounded by four panels, figures on the sides and Views on the top and bottom. The plate was trimmed, removing the panels by Henricus Hondius c.1630. The map had a long life appearing in atlases up to 1665,This map is noted for its elegant engraving and pleasing layout, with fleets of ships and sea monsters, and two inset maps one showing the Arctic Circle and the other showing Greenland. The North Pole depicts Frobisher's theory of the Northwest Passage and the South Pole shows the long-held notion of the mythical southern continent. North America retains the peninsular California and the East Coast is beginning to take shape, although it still lacks detail in the mid-Atlantic region. In the Southwest the famous seven cities of Cibola appear on the banks of a large lake. In South America, there is a large inland sea and two engraved scenes, one of which details a cannibalistic feast. Two stylized insets of the two polar regions are enclosed in strapwork cartouches. Size: 37,5 x 49,8 cm (plus margins).The copperplate that produced this map was originally prepared by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618. This issue, known in three examples, has decorative borders on all four sides. There is a 2nd state in c1629-30 with no decorative borders.  A 3rd state was produced by Henricus Hondius in 1631. The map depicted here is the 4th state with the imprint of Janssonius and the addition of the date of 1641. There was a 5th state in 1652 with the date and the Hondius imprint removed. (Burden, p. 235-6).This map has German text on the verso describing America. This map is from Johannes Janssonius' Atlas of 1646-57 with a signature on the verso of "Aaa", based on van der Krogt (p. 715).  An earlier version of this map was produced by Henricus Hondius in 1631. Through the collaboration between Hondius and Janssonius (they were brothers-in-law), Hondius' map was replaced by Janssonius' map in 1641. Henricus Hondius had died in 1638.Reference:  Burden map #192.Size: 37,6 x 49,9 cm.Price: € 2.900,- (excl VAT/BTW).

        Obras espiritvales que encaminan a vna alma a la perfecta union con dios.

      Alcala [de Henares]: Viuda de Andres Sanches Ezpeleta [i.e., Ana de Salinas] 4to. [16], xxxiii, 682 [i.e. 684], [48] pages, [1] engraving.. 1618 Saint John of the Cross challenges Luis de León for the title of Spain's greatest poet and most critics would unhesitatingly describe him as the greatest mystic that Christendom has known since the Renaissance" (E. Allison Peers, Mystics of Spain, 2002 Dover reprint, p. 23). In this stout volume are his three most important mystical works: Noche oscura del alma, Llama de amor viva, and Subida al Monte Carmelo. Supplementary matter includes "Relacion sumaria del autor deste libro, y de su vida, y virtudes" (by Fray José de Jesús María, sometimes wrongly attributed to Fray Diego de Jesús) and "Apuntamientos advertencias en tres discursos para mas facil inteligencia . . . de las obras . . . de Iuan de la Cruz . . . por Diego de Iesus." The volume begins with an engraved title-page by Diego Astor bearing the coat of arms of Cardinal Borja, the work's dedicatee; opposite p. iii and also by Astor, a full-page engraving shows the Saint before an altar offering his works to Christ; and opposite "fol. 1" (actually p. 1) of the "Subida" is the => emblematical engraving by Astor that represents the mystic way from humblest aspiration to the summit of Perfection. The text is printed in roman, single-column with chapter summaries in italic, and there is a typographic sectional title-page for each of the saint's three works. A detailed index completes the presentation. Provenance: Gift inscription on front free endpaper, "En recuerdo del año, fue azulea tan intenso para mi. Maria, diciembre 1915." Searches of NUC and WorldCat find four copies in U.S. libraries, two in Mexican institutions, and eight in Continental repositories. Curiously, COPAC fails to find any copies in the U.K., not even in the British Library. Additionally, Miss Penney's catalogue of printed books in the Hispanic Society fails to list a copy. Contemporary limp vellum, evidence of ties. Text block once loosening, now reattached to binding. Occasional, light, scattered foxing. => Very good.

        America rare map - Hondius/Janssonius, 1641.

      "America Noviter Delineata"This important map was first published in 1618 by Jodocus Hondius. Cartographically, this map influenced a generation of cartographers and was the basis of understanding the Americas for the first half of the 17th century.When first issued the map was surrounded by four panels, figures on the sides and Views on the top and bottom. The plate was trimmed, removing the panels by Henricus Hondius c.1630. The map had a long life appearing in atlases up to 1665,This map is noted for its elegant engraving and pleasing layout, with fleets of ships and sea monsters, and two inset maps one showing the Arctic Circle and the other showing Greenland. The North Pole depicts Frobisher's theory of the Northwest Passage and the South Pole shows the long-held notion of the mythical southern continent. North America retains the peninsular California and the East Coast is beginning to take shape, although it still lacks detail in the mid-Atlantic region. In the Southwest the famous seven cities of Cibola appear on the banks of a large lake. In South America, there is a large inland sea and two engraved scenes, one of which details a cannibalistic feast. Two stylized insets of the two polar regions are enclosed in strapwork cartouches. Size: 37,5 x 49,8 cm (plus margins).The copperplate that produced this map was originally prepared by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618. This issue, known in three examples, has decorative borders on all four sides. There is a 2nd state in c1629-30 with no decorative borders.  A 3rd state was produced by Henricus Hondius in 1631. The map depicted here is the 4th state with the imprint of Janssonius and the addition of the date of 1641. There was a 5th state in 1652 with the date and the Hondius imprint removed. (Burden, p. 235-6).This map has German text on the verso describing America. This map is from Johannes Janssonius' Atlas of 1646-57 with a signature on the verso of "Aaa", based on van der Krogt (p. 715).  An earlier version of this map was produced by Henricus Hondius in 1631. Through the collaboration between Hondius and Janssonius (they were brothers-in-law), Hondius' map was replaced by Janssonius' map in 1641. Henricus Hondius had died in 1638.Reference:  Burden map #192.Size: 37,6 x 49,9 cm.Price: € 2.900,- (excl VAT/BTW).

        A Treatise of Blazing Starres in Generall

      Bernard Alsop for Henry Bell, London 1618 - OF PARTICULAR ASTRONOMICAL AND ASTROLOGICAL INTEREST Small 4to.18 unnumbered ll. Black Letter with some Roman. Woodcut illustration on tp. of a comet, woodcut headpieces and initials. A very good clean copy in modern calf. Second edition of Abraham Fleming’s first English translation of seventeen chapters of Nausea’s Libri Mirabilium Septem concerning ‘blazing starres’, first published in 1577, and again in 1618, to coincide with the comets of those years. "He (Nausea) raises the question whether anyone can foreknow the future from marvels of rare occurrence and answers it in the affirmative. He doubts, however, whether marvels which are entirely natural, like the magnet attracting iron or the salamander living in fire, can be signs of the future, since they always act in the same way and therefore cannot be special signs of unusual events.", Thorndike. The work starts with a general description of ‘blazing starres’, their names, origins, and a catalogue of the shape of their trails: ('speare', 'sword', 'tunne', 'horne', lampe' a 'horse maine'). "I find some disagreement betweene Philosophers and Astronomers", Nausea writes, concerning what actually produces them in the heavens: some say it is the conjunction of two stars, Aristotle believes a comets is a dry vapour reacting with the upper region of the sky. Nausea then discusses "the good and evil which blazing stars doe prognosticate" citing past examples and referring specifically to the comet of 1531 and what its significance might be, and moves on to a discussion of the ‘starre’ that led the Three Wise Men and a collection of ancient opinions on them. He concludes with a chapter on whether such evils as the blazing star might predict can be prevented or avoided. Nausea, a theologian of Wurtemberg, doctor of laws, and preacher who became Bishop of Vienna in 1541, was writing specifically about the comet of 1531 but used the occasion to write about comets and their interpretation in general, giving rise to the work’s republication at the advent of future ‘blazing starres’. Given that Nausea’s eventual conclusion was that the end of the world was nigh, its republication forty years later is curious. On the other hand, given public interest in comet coverage, combined with their inconclusive origins, comets became central to ongoing debates between Copernican scientists and their rivals. Aristotelian cosmology could incorporate unpredictable comets as products of the layer of fire he believed to be above the terrestrial sphere; Copernicus was nearly silent on the issue. In 1623 Galileo argued (based on comets observed around the time this work was published) that comets were purely optical phenomena. Fleming was a renowned antiquary, publishing over fifty translations, including another part of Nausea’s Libri Miribilium Septem on earthquakes. A good copy of an uncommon work in English of particular astronomical and astrological interest. STC 18413.3. Lowndes IV.1654. (edit. of 1577). Thorndike V 321-2, VI 491-2.

        Autograph: Anton von Rabatta, kaiserlicher Statthalter in Gradisca, Botschafter in Venedig (ca. 1618-1648).

      - Feder mit brauner Tinte auf Büttenpapier, 2 Wasserzeichen, 2 Seiten, 4° (gefaltetes Doppelblatt), Zustand: Faltspuren, etwas Mäusefraß an der linken oberen Ecke, rechte obere Ecke mit Sammlerstempel „S". Der vorliegende Brief mit Empfehlungsformel und Unterschrift „Anth. Graff von Rabatta", wurde am 12. September 1643 aus Venedig wahrscheinlich an den Grafen Johann Ludwig von Nassau-Hadamar (1580-1653) gesendet, der ab 30. Juli 1643 kaiserlicher Gesandter bei den Friedensverhandlungen in Münster war. Das Schreiben ist an ihn gerichtet, nicht aber adressiert. Der Adressat „Eure gräfliche Excellenz" sei „pro principale Commissario nach Münster deputirt" worden. Da der große Verhandlungsführer auf kaiserlicher Seite, Maximilian Graf Trauttmannsdorff, erst an 1645 zum Prinzipalkommissar ernannt worden ist, kann es sich nur um Johann Ludwig von Nassau handeln. Anton von Rabatta bestätigt in dem Brief den Erhalt eines Schreibens des Grafen, der die Ankunft des Kaisers in Niklasburg ankündigt. Rabatta hofft auf den Erfolg des kaiserlichen Heeres. Zudem erfolgt Rückseitig der folgende Nachtrag: „der Fürst Matthiaß von Toßcana hat ain ansehliche Victori wid[er] die Bäpstl. [Truppen] erhalten bey 2000 erlegt wie gefangen 4 stuckh geschüz und die maiste bagaglia [erobert]." Über den Grafen Rabatta ist wenig bekannt, er wurde 1648 in den Uskoken ermordet. Autographen von ihm sind sehr selten. Sein Sohn, Rudolf von Rabatta, war kaiserlicher Kämmerer, Feldmarschall und Hofkriegsrath (ADB XXVII, 77, dort auch der Vater erwähnt).

        LUDOVICUS QUARTUS IMPERATOR. Defensus; Bzovius Jniuriarium postulatus, Quòd eundem Divae memoriae Imperatorem Serenissimorum Bavariae Ducum progenitorem, contra ius, fas, aequum, verum in mendosissimis annalibus suis infectatus, gravissimis calumnijs onerârit, ab Joanne Georgio Heruuarto ab Hohenburg. Accessit mantissa aliorum Bzovij errorum.

      Apud Nicolaum Henricum, Monachii 1618 - Prima edizione. Testo latino. Cm.23x18. Pg.(22), VIII, 536. Legatura in mz.pergamena con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello in pelle con titoli in oro al dorso. tagli spruzzati. Capilettera ornati. Vistosa chiazza brunita che interessa la parte interna dell'intero volume, senza limitarne la fruibilità. L'Imperatore Ludovico IV il Bavaro (Monaco di Baviera, 1287 - 1347) "figlio di Ludovico II, duca di Baviera e conte palatino del Reno, e di Matilde, figlia di Rodolfo d'Asburgo, fu scelto come imperatore contro Federico III il Bello duca d'Austria. Ludovico entrò in conflitto con papa Giovanni XXII, che non riconobbe la decisione in quanto avvenuta senza giudizio pontificio e che lo scomunicò: disceso in Italia, Ludovico si fece incoronare dal popolo romano (1328) e dichiarò deposto il papa. Nel 1338 proclamò la legittimità di ogni elezione regia, anche se priva di approvazione pontificia, se decisa dalla maggioranza dei principi elettori. Nel 1346 gli fu contrapposto Carlo, figlio di Giovanni re di Boemia" (da wikipedia). Il presente testo confuta la rappresentazione che di Ludovico il Barbaro viene data dallo storico domenicano polacco Abraham Bzovius, nome latinizzato di Abraham Bzowski (1567?1637), nella sua continuazione degli "Annales ecclesiastici" del Baronio. Ne è autore il gesuita tedesco Jacob Keller (Säckingen, 1568-1631), che fu insegnante di filosofia e di teologia dogmatica a Friburgo, Ingolstadt, Monaco e Ratisbona. L'anno successivo, il 1619, pubblicò "Pro Ludovico quarto imperatore contra Bzovium pars altera" e "Mantissa sive contra Bzovium pars tertia in qua per omnes Europae prouincias specimen exhibetur Bzovianae in historia eruditionis". > British Library, "Catalogue of books printed in German.", II, H 974. 1100 gr.
