      Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame da anonimo artefice dei Paesi Bassi, su disegno di Giovanni Tommaso Borgonio (1618 ca. - ante 1692) delineato nel 1666 - 1667. In lastra, in basso a destra, numero XLVII; all'angolo inferiore destro dell'immagine, titolo, richiami in lingua latina ed indicazione dell'autore, entro elegante cartiglio in forma di cippo, sormontato da arma gentilizia sostenuta da putti. La tavola è tratta dalla penultima edizione d'una monumentale descrizione dei possedimenti sabaudi, siti al di qua e al di là delle Alpi: l'opera fu impressa la prima volta ad Amsterdam, presso gli eredi di I. Blaeu, nel 1682, sotto il titolo di Theatrum Statuum Regiæ Celsitudinis Sabaudiæ Ducis [...]. Nella tavola è raffigurata Pecetto, un'amena località collinare sita nell'attuale provincia di Torino. Il borgo, non circondato da strutture fortificate, è dominato dalla parrocchiale di San Pietro e dal castello, che nel 1682 era di propietà di Benedetto Cisa, marchese di Grésy, di Montaimont, nonché conte di Pecetto; significativa è inoltre la raffigurazione in primo piano di un poggio con filari di viti, un omaggio ai vini della zona, considerati eccellenti già nel Seicento. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

        Libra astronomica ac philosophica qua Galilaei Galilaei opiniones de cometis a Mario Guicucio in Florentina Academia expositae, atque in lucem nuper editae, examinantur a Lothario Sarsio Sigensano

      Engraved title vignette of one of the 1618 comets in the constellation of Libra, with large historiated initials and text diagrams. Antique calf in a contemporary style with gilt borders and gilt - ornamented spine; overall in superb condition. First edition of Grassi?s extraordinarily important and bitter attack on Galileo?s theory of the nature of comets, later inspiring Il Saggiatore. The scientists? famous dispute started the prior year with Grassi?s De tribus cometis, which Galileo (using the alias of his assistant Guiducci) followed up with his provocative Discorso della comete (1619). Grassi responded (under the pseudonym Lothario Sarsi) with this publication of Libra astronomica, in which he strongly defends the ideas of Tycho Brahe and the Jesuits. Galileo went on to publish his polemic and rhetorical masterpiece, Il Saggiatore, as a direct reply to this work. Grassi (1583 - 1654) was a Jesuit mathematician who taught at the Collegio Romano. This controversy ruined his relationship with Galileo, and earned his adversary the ire of the entire Collegio Romano ?" a major factor in his later difficulties with the Inquisition.

      Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Ex officina Iacobi Marci, 1618.. 8vo: (IV),378 p. 19th century overlapping vellum. 14.5 cm (Ref: STCN, only 1 copy; Hoffmann 2,115 & 3,43; Schweiger 1,123 & 223; Ebert 7167; Graesse 2,527; not in Brunet) (Details: Back gilt and edges gilt; printer's device on title) (Condition: Vellum on the lower board slightly damaged by tiny wormholes; 2 hardly visible pinpoint wormholes in the spine; some slight foxing) (Note: Almost nothing is known about the byzantine author Eustathius Macrembolites. He wrote a prose romance Hysmine & Hysminias ca. 1200. The 'editio princeps' was published in 1617 in Paris by Gilbertus Gaulminus Molinensis. The Greek text is accompanied there by his Latin translation. In the introductory letter (Lectori S.) to this Latin edition of 1618 no translator is mentioned. He must however be the translator of the 'editio princeps', for it is stated there that the translation is of recent date. The book offers texts of authors 'quos docti viri Romana lingua nuper loqui fecerunt'. (p. *2 recto) The liber of Parthenius (first century B.C.) was translated by Ianus Cornarius Zuiccauiensis (Johann Cornarius von Zwickau), 1500-1558, and first published in Basel in 1513. Cornarius, a friend of Erasmus, edited and translated Greek and Latin medical writers, and is best known for his editions and translations of Hippocrates and Galenus. On p. 297 starts a Latin translation of the 'Amores', a dialogue of Lucianus. The editor and translator of Eustathius Macrembolites, the Frenchman Gilbert Gaulmin, was a magistrat et 'erudit francais', born in Moulins in 1585. He died in 1665. He was a polyglot. He knew, besides Greek and Latin, Italian, Spanish, Hebrew, Persian, and Turkish. His most important works are 'De operatione daemonum' attributed to Psellus (1615) ; this 'De Ismeniae & Ismenes amoribus' (1617); 'Les amours de Rhodanthe et de Dosicles' of Theodorus Prodromus (1625), 'De vita et morte Mosis' (an anonymous hebrew text, 1629). His most famous publication is his 'Livre des lumieres en la conduite des rois compose par le sage Pilpay' (1644). His audacious exegesis of some Bible books brought him imprisonment in the Bastille for some time. (Source for Gaulmin Wikipedia) This Latin translation of Eustathius Macrembolites of 1618 was reissued in Leiden in 1634 and 1644) (Collation: *2, A-O8 P6 Q-2A8 (leaf 2A8 blank) (Photographs on request).

        La filosofía vulgar de. vezino de Sevilla. Primera parte que contiene mil refranes glossados

      Madrid, Juan de la Cuesta 1618 - 4º menor (19,2 x 13,4 cm.) Separata, desde el fol 121 inc. port. con la marca del impresor Juan de la Cuesta grabada en madera, hasta el 399. Tafilete verde del XIX, doble filete dorado en planos, lomo con nervios y hierros dorados. Ejemplar corto de márgenes, especialmente el inferior, afectando al pie de la portada viéndose cortado el pie de imprenta. Mancha de grasa al pie de portada y primeras hojas. Debería de llevar delante desde el fol. 1 al 120 los “Refranes” de Hernan Núñez. El humanista y paremiólogo Juan de Mal Lara, en el discurso preliminar a su obra, ensalza la sabiduría popular de los refranes sobre la libresca y le atribuye una enorme antigüedad. Su obra constituye una de las más famosas recopilaciones y copiosas glosas de refranes de la lengua castellana. Aunque se trata de una gigantesca recopilación de refranes populares acompañada de comentarios a cargo del autor, estas glosas desvelan, tras una atenta lectura, el matiz reflexivo que posee el escrito de Mal Lara. Como algún crítico ha afirmado: “el sevillano completa, en un sentido que nadie había abordado, la visión humanística de la centralidad del hombre, buscando, a través de los refranes, la síntesis de su forma de vivir, de sus relaciones con el mundo que le rodea, de sus sentimientos, de sus pasiones y desengaños” Palau nota al 147847 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"Gustav Adolfs bibel" [The Bible of Gustavus Adolphus], mainly a reprint of Gustav Vasas bibel [The Bible of Gustav I], was printed in a total of 2512 copies. The plates and title-leaves were engraved by Vallentin Staffansson Trautman in Stockholm, while the wodcuts were made by Jacob Mores, a Hamburg goldsmith and engraver. Lindberg writes: "The frames to these illustrations are by the same artist and technique and consist of grotesques and the vices and virtues within strap-work in the style of the dutch artist Jan Vredeman de Vries. These metal blocks were later used for abridged so-called figure-bibles in the 18th and 19th centuries and through these editions came to inspire the famous wall-painters of Dalarna, among the most interesting features of swedish folk-art." Fredrik Stahl is possibly identical to Fredrik Staël von Holstein who worked at the fortfication in Pernau in today's Estonia and who later became captain at the fortification in Gothenburg. Stahl writes that the book has been donated to the Royal Library in Pernau in 1709 by a citizen of Pernau. This "citizen" was possibly Stahl himself. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Barcelona, Geronimo Margarit 1618 - 8º menor (14,2 x 19,8 cm). 6 h. inc. port., 370 fols. Grabadito xilográfico en portada. Pasta española del siglo XVIII, lomo liso, tejuelo rojo: suarez. el passagero. Segunda edición, publicada un año después que la princeps de Marid. En El Passagero, Suárez de Figueroa da inestimables informaciones sobre las costumbres de la España de su tiempo. Esta merecidamente considerada como obra maestra, escrita en diálogos, narra el viaje de un maestro en Artes y Teología, un militar, un orífice y un doctor –que debe representar al propio Figueroa– entre Madrid y Barcelona, camino de Italia. Los personajes dialogan sobre las comedias y los comediantes, la vida universitaria en Alcalá, las mujeres, el gobierno, la sociedad de entonces. No faltan las burlas, como era habitual en su tiempo, contra muchos ingenios de la época: Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Juan de Arguijo, Juan Ruiz de Alarcón, Cervantes. Hay estudios que afirman que fue Suarez de Figueroa quien escribió el Quijote apócrifo y no Avellaneda basándose en el análisis del léxico de El Quijote y de El Pasajero, donde queda suficientemente de manifiesto la personalidad del autor, su espíritu crítico respecto a la sociedad de su tiempo, las nada cordiales relaciones que mantuvo con sus colegas –en particular con Alarcón– y la antipatía que sentía hacia Cervantes.

        Le Relationi Universali ... divise in sette parti...[with] Aggiunta alla quarta parte dell'Indie

      Venice: Alessandro de Vecchi, 1618, 1618. Small thick quarto, with 32 woodcuts in the "Aggiunta" section; some marginal repairs in the "Aggiunta" and two of the leaves crudely coloured, inkstains to another; lacking eight text leaves in the main work and four leaves of index, but the "Aggiunta" section complete; old quarter vellum. With the extraordinary woodcuts of "prodigies" of the southern world. First of two editions, both very rare. This wonderful book, printed early in the seventeenth century, contains a remarkable series of woodcuts actually prepared in the sixteenth century but not then published. Wormholes in the actual woodblocks that show clearly in the printing suggest that the blocks lay idle for a substantial time. These haunting images, partly the work of the artist Hans Burgkmair, represent the general European perception of the mysteries of the undiscovered worlds to the east and south. Woodcuts of the creatures likely to be found inhabiting these lands are accompanied by others of actual native peoples encountered on a real voyage, without much distinction being drawn between real and imaginary. These weird imaginings include numerous remarkable evolutionary fantasies such as the skiapod whose immense foot has developed to shield him from the fierce sun, and numerous permutations of man-beast combinations.The eighth part of this posthumous edition of Botero's chronicle contains these thirty-two sixteenth-century woodcuts, which depict "Monsters and Customs of the Indies, with their King including lively illustrations of them". Fifteen cuts portray monsters or "Prodigies", while seventeen illustrate actual natives of India, Africa and Arabia. This latter part of the series represents the first serious study of African and Oriental native life and dress for publication in a European travel book.Of this last group, eight are from a larger block of 1508, which formed a panorama by Burgkmair known as 'The Procession of the King of Cochin'. The panorama was to have illustrated an account of a voyage to India undertaken by the German merchant, Balthasar Springer, on a Portuguese vessel in 1505-6. Springer's account was never published and no complete impression of the block appears to be known.Some of these remarkable images are familiar from the dramatic reproductions in the 1988 "Terra Australis" exhibition. As Eisler remarked in the catalogue (Terra Australis, fig. 1, p. 16), the woodblocks represent "one of the earliest and most dramatic studies of exotic people from the tropical regions visited by the Portuguese". They were the immediate source for the extraordinary tapestry 'Triumph of the King of Cochin' by the Arras workshop, now in the Musée des Arts Africains et Océaniens Terra Australis, no. 2).Botero's universal geography was first printed in Rome in 1591, without the eighth part. Published in many editions and translations, it has always been highly regarded. Only in the two Vecchi editions of 1618 and 1622-3 is the Aggiunta found with it; in fact, when Oakeshott first discovered a copy with the Burgkmair cuts he thought it to be unique. This copy, as noted above, lacks a number of leaves in the main work but the Aggiunta section, a separate work that sometimes exists as a stand-alone volume, is complete.

        The History of Tithes

      London, 1618. Leather Bound. Fair/No Jacket. xxii, 491 p. 15 cm. Half leather, some scuffs to cloth, rubbing to edges. Title-page darkened, title written on fore-edge, ink mark on p. 225, repair to p. 287, small spots. Extended title reads: "That is, The Practice of Payment of them. The Positive Laws made for them. The Opinions touching the Right of them. A Review of it Is also annext, which both Confirmes it and directs in the Use of it." History of Tithes is a seminal work in the separation of church and state. The basic precept of the text is that tithing, or giving 10 percent of one's income to the church, is a law of man and not a law of God. As the argument proceeds, it goes further to infer the division of state and church, and the absurdity of the divine right of kings. Selden's conclusions were crucial and controversial. Milton called Selden "the chief of learned men reputed in this Land." He was born in 1584, the son of a poor minstrel father, who was lucky enough to marry Selden's rich mother. She was an only child, and therefore heir of her father's estate. Mr. Selden and his family where thus lifted out of poverty, so much so that they could send their only son John to university. John Selden went to Oxford and was called to the bar, and then proceeded to establish himself as an academic, and one of Europe's leading scholars on Asian history. His earliest work was a study of Syrian mythology in the Bible, De dis Syris, a treatise finished in 1605 and published in 1617. He was then elected to Parliament. King James I imprisoned Selden in the Tower of London for five weeks for treason, when Selden professed that Parliament should pay no heed to the Crown. He defended the independence of Parliament, citing the existence of similar political constructs in pre-monarchist Anglo-Saxon traditions. In essence, he was imprisoned for demanding that the people have control of the government instead of the monarchy. Selden was an early voice of democracy. In 1623 he was again imprisoned for having Parliament pass a law that prohibited a lucrative tax for the monarchy. Selden was known for his persuasive and candorous manner of speech, which made him popular with those he spoke for, but much hated by his opponents. Selden died in London on November 30, 1654. Selden's work as an intellectual laid the groundwork for the 17th century revolution against the power of the Crown. Ironically, in his later career he was record keeper for the Tower of London, where he had been imprisoned. Selden continued to make his mark after his death. The posthumous book "Table Talk" was a survey of Selden's witty conversations with famous friends such as poet Ben Jonson. As well, his emphasis on the importance of history lives on through the Selden Society, a group that promotes the study of English legal history.

        King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott

      - King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott. Benedictine monks in France instituted reforms in Paris and then St-Augustin de Limoges in the second decade of the 17th century, requiring that those who desired to embrace the monastic life spend one year as postulants, a second as novices, and then, when they had completed the five yearsÕ course of philosophy and theology, spend a year of contemplation before they were admitted to the priesthood. The discipline was marked by a return to the strict rules of St. Benedict. All monks labored with their hands, all abstained from eating meat, all embraced poverty; the Divine Office was recited at the canonical hours with great solemnity, silence was observed for many hours, and there were regular times for private prayer and meditation. In 1618, it was decided that a congregation independent of Rome should be organized for the reformed houses in France, having its superior residing within that kingdom. This proposal was supported by Louis XIII as well as by Cardinal Richelieu, and letters patent were granted by the King. The PopeÕs approval followed. The new organization was named the Congregation of St-Maur, or Maurists. Dom Maur Dupont was elected head in 1627. In 1629, he sought to step down, which meant that an election would have to be held for his successor. Letter Signed in French, Fountainbleau, September 6, 1629, to Cardinal Guido Bentivoglio, who was entrusted by King Louis XIII with the management of French affairs at the papal court, and whom he addresses as Òmy cousin the Cardinal Bentivoglio, Protector of the Affairs of France at the court of Rome.Ó ÒHaving by my letters patent of the month of January 1627, recorded in my Grand Council, bestowed on Dom Maur Dupont the position of Abbot to the monks of the Abby of St. Augustin near my town of Limoges.and the congregation of St. Maur, and having arrived at the departure of the said Dupont, Abbot - the said position being up till now elective as it has been by virtue of the concord made between the Holy See and this Crown - and that the said election might be made by the general chapter of the monks of the said congregation for a person professed and nourished in reform and regularity and of no other, I write you this letter to tell you that I would have great pleasure if you would ask the Pope in my name for confirmation of the right to hold the election that I accorded to the monks, without obliging them to pay the rights of annata [tithes of office] because of the poverty and destitution of the said abbey, in which you would make me happy.Ó Dom Gregorian Tarisse was elected as DupontÕs successor and given the title of Superior-General, the first to hold that office. He was an important leader and strictly maintained the Maurists as an all-French order. When his years as leader ended, the group included over 80 monasteries. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Epitome Astronomiae Copernicae. I-III (all).

      1618, 1622, 1621. 8vo. All three parts bound uncut in a nice contemporary full vellum binding. In astonishingly fine condition! Contemporary annotations in a very neat hand throughout. There is a little bit of occasional light browning, mostly to the second part (i.e. Book IV). Numerous woodcut illustrations throughout.Fully complete (with the plate, dedication, errata, blanks, etc. - conforming exactly to the Caspar collation), with no flaws of any kind (apart from the occasional minor browning), not washed, or tampered with in any way. An absolutely excellent copy of a highly important and beautiful work.. SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF THE WORK THAT FOUNDED THE SCIENCE OF HEAVEN MECHANICS. IT IS IN THIS WORK THAT KEPLER GENIOUSLY GIVES TO THEORETICAL ASTRONOMY ITS NEW FORM, AND THE BOOK, THE "SUMMA ASTRONOMIA", IN ITS TIME WAS CONSIDERED "THE BIBLE OF NATURE". The second part of the work is in the title-issue - almost no copies of the original title-page for this part are known; as Caspar explains, "almost all copies of Lib. IV. of the "Epitome" belong to the title-issue from the year 1622" (see further explanation below). Immediately after having published his "Astronomia Nova" in 1609, Kepler decided to create a work that was to summarize all astronomical knowledge, a "summa astronomia", that showed the astronomical world the way that he had built it through his amazing discoveries, based on Copernican teachings. He wanted to make the new form that he had given to astronomy widely known, and he wanted to spread the work and his science as widely as possible. Thus, he set out to create a revolutionizing work that was to be more easily understood, more all-encompassing, cheaper, and easier to get hold of than his earlier works. He succeeded in the first two criteria, but not the last two. First of all, the difficult political conditions and the fact that he had to move to Linz proved primary obstacles. Second, after having finished the manuscript, in the spring of 1615, and after having made arrangements with the Augsburg publisher, Hans Crüger, problems arose between him and the printer Joh. Plank, who at that time had also moved to Linz. Crüger refused to have the work printed by Plank, which meant, first, that Kepler had to pay for the printing himself, and second, that instead of the proof sheets appearing in May 1616, the first part was not printed until the late spring of 1617. Apart from that, Kepler, who in the meantime had had to spend time at court in Prague, was not at all satisfied with the printing (the typography, printing errors, many mis-paginations, etc.), and it turned out that the work ended up being extremely expensive and not being printed in a large number, exactly the opposite of what he had wanted.(Own translation from Caspar, 55:) "apart from the usual expositions, in his spherical astronomy, Kepler discusses a number of questions that transcend the formal character of this science. Primarily, it is the movement of the earth in Copernican sense that he most forcibly defends with new arguments. When he compares it with the movement of a gyroscope, one here immediately sees the new spirit that speaks through him..." In the dedication he speaks about the "hypothesis of Copernicus", and "this standing up for Copernicus was the reason why this I. part of the Epitome already in the year 1619, before the appearance of the two other parts, was forbidden by the Holy Offizium on Rome... If, in the I. Part of his Epitome, Kepler shows himself as the eager advocate of Copernican teachings, so, in both of the following parts (Nr. 63 and 66), the creating genious commences the plan that casts theoretical astronomy in entirely new forms and founds a new science, the heaven mechanics. The new comprehension of the movements of the "travelling star" that came as a breakthrough in heavy rings in the Astronomia Nova and replaced kinematics with dynamics, is here [in the Epitome] explained in more clear and straightforward terms (whereas in the Stella Nova the exposition had been difficult to understand) and elaborated and rounded off by realizations and results later achieved." Although there are mistakes and errors in the present work, in the Epitome, Kepler "has still paved the way for his science, the path through which posterity continued and reached the greatest results, and the planetary laws that his textbook (i.e. the Epitome) sets forth, has provided the basis, for all times, for astronomical calculation within the solar system...". The book is in 8vo and thus in format the smallest that Kepler ever published, but in extent it is by far his largest and most comprehensive work, with its small types and more than 900 pages. As mentioned above, the second part of the work is in the title-issue, as almost always: The second part, constituting book IV, was printed in Linz in the summer of 1620, but several problems occurred immediately hereafter. The publisher Crüger caused Kepler problems again, as he had done with the first part, for which he had opposed the costs and the printer. The printing of the second part was finished in August, but immediately hereafter, just before the printing of the third and final part was to take place, Kepler had to return to his home-town due to bad news (of legal character) concerning his mother. He did not return to Linz until November 1621. When he left for Schwaben, he brought 17 "akefaloi"-copies with him, i.e. copies without title-page and preface. This title-quire for the second part was printed by Cellius in Tübingen, whom he had previously given a copy of Book IV, in the winter of 1620/21 and was sent to Kepler afterwards. In the fall of 1621 all the other copies of the second part (i.e. all, apart from those that Kepler had taken with him) were sent from Linz to Frankfurt, where Tampach was taking care of the printing of the final third part, and here the title-quire for the second part received the new title with the year 1622, as we know it in almost all surviving copies. "The reason why this happened is presumably the fact that Tampach wanted to have the imprint "impensis G. Tampachii" on the title-page; apparently he had afterwards taken part in the work financially." (Caspar 63).). A second edition appeared in 1635 (several of the copies that have been for sale have the second part, not in the title-issue as the present, but in the second edition from 1635, e.g. the Macclesfield-copy).Caspar, Bibliographia Kepleriana, Nr.: 55, 63, 66.There are a few auction records for this work, and none of these copies are in a condition comparable to this

        Rimas castellanas a D. Juan Andres Hurtado de Mendoça, Marques de Cañete.

      en casa de la viuda de Alonso Martín,, Madrid: 1618 - Portada grabada, 8 hojas, 136 folios. Encuadernación original en pergamino con el título rotulado en el lomo. Cortes tintados. Conserva las correíllas y uno de los cierres. En el reverso de la portada, verso de +1 y reverso de R8 hay un pequeño sello de muy antiguo. Ejemplar perfecto. Palau 286222. Los epigramas de Salas Barbadillo aparecieron en cuatro series que van desde 1614 a 1635. El autor los intercaló masivamente en El Caballero Puntual y en El sagaz Estadio, y también los reunió en dos colecciones de poemas: Rimas Castellanas y El Ramillete, que forma parte de Coronas del Parnaso (1635). Es obvio que el orden cronológico de composición tiene poco que ver con el orden de publicación, ya que, por ejemplo, casi la mitad de los epigramas de El Caballero Puntual (1614) se repiten en Rimas Castellanas (1618), colección que estaba lista para la imprenta antes de El Caballero Puntual. Podemos pensar que la mayoría de dichos epigramas se compusieron por los años 1610-1615 y que Salas los publicó cuando pudo, no vacilando en repetir algunos de ellos en dos obras diferentes.

      Arnheim: Jan Jansen, 1618.. [38]pp. plus nine folding plates. Small quarto. New vellum. One plate with an older tissue repair on verso. Minor toning. Very good. First German edition, and second overall, of the chronicle of this major voyage, an important step in the rise of the Dutch seaborne empire. Undertaken in 1615 and lasting until 1617, this important expedition was the fourth complete circumnavigation, after Magellan in 1519, Drake in 1577, and Cavendish shortly thereafter. The expedition was the first to go visit Cape Horn, naming Cape after the Dutch town of Hoorn, whose aggressive traders sponsored the voyage. In addition, the expedition explored the Pacific coast of South America, pursued the search for Terra Australis, and proved that Tierra del Fuego was not an island. The plates show maps of the route, as well as a view of Cocos Island, Tierra del Fuego, an Indian sailing canoe, a meeting of the Indian kings, and a plate of Porto Desire which shows several species of animal. Translated from Schouten's JOURNAL OFTE BESCHREYVINGHE... published the same year in Amsterdam, this edition used the same plates to print the map and illustrations. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 618/120, locating only two copies. PALMER 386. SABIN 77955.
