      Apparently unique pamphlet from the Inquisition, given at the Castle of Cuenca, petitioning to be moved from the current location due to the harshness of the weather (strong winds being pointed out as being most extreme) to the city, presumably where the weather was less inclement; and requests donations for the move, which are -to the extent of everyone´s wish- to be annexed to the bottom of the pamphlet. "Las incomodidas grandes que padecen los ministros defta Inquisicion, y todas las personas que vienen a negociar a ella (por estas fundada en el mas aspero sitio de España, en un zerro levantado, y entre otros dos por donde vienen los ayres furiosos... nos ha obligado a suplicar al Illustrisimo Señor Cardenal, Inquisidor general, y los Señores del Consejo de su Magestad, de la Sancta, y general Inquisicion, tuviesen por bien de darnos licencia para poner esta Inquisicion en lo llano de esta Ciudad, junto a San Francisco: la cual se nos ha concedido.

      Köln, Anton Hieratus 1618. - Bautz IV, 914-915; VD17, 23:625877R (Tl. IV) u. VD17, 23:625879F (Tl. V.2).Von 1559 bis 1574 erschien in Basel die "Ecclesiastica historia", eine von Matthias Flacius angeregte und geleitete Gemeinschaftsarbeit mehrerer lutherischer Theologen, den sog. "Magdeburger Centurien". Dieses einzige, größere, auf Quellenforschungen beruhende kirchengeschichtliche Werk des Protestantismus der Reformationszeit behandelt - nach Jahrhunderten (Centurien) eingeteilt - die Kirchengeschichte bis zum Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts. Die Bearbeiter der "Magdeburger Centurien" suchen zu beweisen, daß die Papstkirche im Lauf der Jahrhunderte immer mehr von der ursprünglichen Reinheit und Einfalt der apostolischen Kirche abgefallen sei und die Reformationskirche, die sich auf viele "testes veritatis" der früheren Jahrhunderte berufen könne, keine Neuerung sei (Vgl. dazu Bautz II, 43-48). Zur Widerlegung der protestantischen Magdeburger Centuriatoren veröffentlichte La Bigne in seiner "Bibliotheca veterum patrum" über 200 Werke der Kirchenväter in systematischer Ordnung, um den Nachweis zu erbringen, daß die katholische Kirche nie von der Lehre und der Verfassung der Alten Kirche abgewichen sei. Ein Unternehmen, an das sich bisher noch keiner gewagt hatte. Die Bibliotheca erschien erstmals von 1575-79 in 9 Bänden, wurde wiederholt nachgedruckt und vermehrt, und erreichte in der Ausgabe von Lyon (1677) bereits 27 Bände. Vorliegende Ausgabe umfasste 15 (in 19) Bände (die alle im gleichen Jahr gedruckt wurden) und wurde 1622 um einen Indexband erweitert. Die beiden Teile enthalten Werke u.a. von Filastrius v. Brescia, Didymus dem Blinden, Apollinaris von Laodicea, Philon v. Karpasia, Chrysologus Petrus u. Sixtus III. Die Bände stammen aus dem aufgelassenen Grazer Karmeliterkloster St. Joseph. LA BIGNE (auch Binius od. Bignaeus) Marguerin de (1546 od. 47 - 1589 od. 90); Theologe u. Patrologe. L.B. entstammte einer alten normannischen Adelsfamilie. Nach dem Erwerb des Lizentiats der Theologie an der Universität Caen bekleidete er dort das Amt des Rektors. Auf der Sorbonne setzte er seine Studien fort und wurde zum Doktor der Theologie promoviert. Die Herausgabe der "Bibliotheca veterum patrum" brachte ihm eine Domherrenstelle in Bayeux ein. Sein persönliches kirchenpolitisches Engagement für die Rechte seines Stiftes führte zum Konflikt mit seinem Bischof und zu L.B.s Resignation in Bayeux. Kurz darauf verstarb er in Paris. 2°. Tit. (in Rot- u. Schwarzdruck), 1 Bl. (Autoren- u. Werksverz.), 1071(1) S. u. Tit., 1 Bl. (Verz.), 982 S. (Text 2-spaltig gesetzt). Mit je 1 großen Druckermarke auf Tit., einigen Zierleisten u.

        El passagero. Advertencias utilissimas a la vida humana

      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. Ejemplar en buen estado. Palau, 323914; Salva, 2004 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Historie of Tithes, That is, The Practice of Payment of Them. The

      1618 - Well-Preserved First Edition of Selden's Tithes Selden, John [1584-1654]. The Historie of Tithes, 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. [London: s.n.], 1618. [vi], xxii, [12], 491, [5] pp. Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind frames to boards, raised bands and gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. Light fading to portions of boards, corners lightly bumped. Title page printed in red and black. Toning, some discoloration and light wear to edges of title page and following few leaves, internally clean. A nice copy in a handsome binding. $650. * First edition, variant A. (One of the eight variants, with all points indicated by Sweet & Maxwell). The History of Tithes, which was one of Selden's earliest writings, angered James I and the clergy because it questioned the divine right to impose tithes. Although it was suppressed by the Court of High Commission, the resulting controversy transformed Selden into a figure of national importance. His treatment by the church and state also encouraged his opposition to political absolutism, an idea that informs his later writings. Based on remarks in the dedication and on p. 449, Sweet & Maxwell believe this is not a true first edition. (The presumed earlier edition appears to be a ghost, however.)

        [Collection of 10 print series of 6 plates each with model designs for altars, church tabernacles, armorial trophies, chimney-pieces, monumental doorways, wainscoting, wall panels and ceilings].Paris, Jean I Le Blond, Pierre II Mariette, [ca. 1655-ca. 1670]. 10 print series in 1 volume. Oblong small folio & oblong 4to (20 x 26.5 cm). With 60 engraved plates (plate size ca. 15 x 22 cm). 17th-century sprinkled, gold-tooled calf, each board with the same unidentified coat-of-arms in the centre.

      For Le Pautre in general: Millard coll. (French), pp. 293-298 (cf. no. 100, with Mariette eds. of other Le Pautre prints). Ten complete and very rare etched and engraved architectural-ornamental print series (each with 6 prints), designed and executed by the leading Paris architect and engraver Jean Le Pautre (1618-1682). "One of the most inventive and prolific ornamental draftsmen of all time. ... Le Pautre's importance is vast. ... All Europe followed his influence until the end of the eighteenth century." (Millard). Working for the Manufacture des Gobelins and on his own account, Le Pautre executed much work for Louis XIV. The work also provides a survey of Paris fashion in interior decoration fairly early in the reign of Louis XIV and helped to determine and establish the richly ornamental style we associate with Louis and his circles. The collection contains the following print series:Ad 1. Retables dautels a l[']italien[n]e ... Paris, Pierre II Mariette, [ca. 1670]. Ad 2.

      Lvgdvni Batavorvm [Leiden]: ex Officina Elzeviriana, 1618. First edition, posthumously published; small 4to, pp. [20], 928, [14]; printer's woodcut vignette on title page, woodcut initials and ornaments; contemporary unadorned full vellum, turned-in edges; some soiling and staining to the vellum, but on the whole very good and sound. Early ink annotations, underlinings, and references throughout the text. This copy with an attractive watercolor (collage) pasted to front pastedown, which is subtly overpainted to make it seem as if it were a painting made directly into the book. A signature to the left of it reads "Cornelius Hirt" (?). Born in Leiden, Gerard Tuning (1566-1610) wrote a number of books on divine and constitutional law. A life of him by Vinnius is part of the preliminaries. Not a common book: only 3 in OCLC as of 3/16 and only George Washington Univ. in the US. Copinger 4781; Willems 150.

        Cruydt-boeck van Rembertus Dodonaeus, volgens sijne laetste verbeteringe: met biivoegsels achter elck capittel, uut verscheyden cruydtbeschrijvers: item in't laetste een beschrijvinge vande Indiaensche gewassen, meest getrocken wt de schriften van Carolus Clusius.

      Leyden, Françoys van Ravelingen, 1618. Thick folio (34.3 x 22.0 x 11.2 cm). Half title, engraved title-page with letterpress title and imprint, coloured by an early hand and highlighted in gold, description of contents printed on verso; [xxviii], 1495, [1 blank], [lvi], [2 blank] pp.; about 1470 botanical woodcuts in the text (mostly 13.0 x 7.0 cm). Further with woodcut decorated initials, head- and tailpieces built up from arabesque fleurons, textura types with extensive fraktur and civilité and incidental roman, italic, rotunda and Greek types. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum over wooden boards. Bevelled edges. Spine with manuscript title. Brass clasps.l Second Dutch edition of Dodoens's last, most important and most extensively illustrated work, with Clusius's extensive appendix of American and East Indian plants, which adds nearly 100 woodcuts. Besides the usual European herbs and medicinal plants, the book describes and illustrates mushrooms, fruit trees and other trees, as well as tropical peppers, cacti, fruits, nuts, tobacco, papyrus, etc., and even a coral. It made an important contribution to systematic botany by defining the parts of plants in general. The "Cruydt-Boeck", not to be confused with the "Cruydeboeck" first published in 1554, was largely a Dutch translation of the "Stirpium historiae pemptades sex, libri XXX", first published by Plantin at Antwerp in 1583. The "Stirpium" represents Dodoens's best and last great work: a monumental botanical study divided into six large sections, each containing five books, with the plants classified in 26 groups. This system was far superior to all his earlier classifications. Joost van Raveling[h]en or Justus Raphelengius (1573-1628) at Leiden, Christophel Plantin's grandson, first published the present translation in 1608, adding extra information in a smaller type at the end of each chapter. These additions give information on the qualities of the plants taken from the "Cruydeboeck" (if they are not present in the "Stirpium"), as well as new information or descriptions of new plants taken from the work of other authors, including Carolus Clusius and Mathias de Lobel. At the end Van Ravelingen added a whole new part on exotic plants taken from the works of Clusius, Garcia da Orta, Nic. Monardès, Chr. Acosta and others. Willem Swanenburgh engraved the title-page, originally for the 1608 edition. It has a view of a botanical garden (with cacti, palm trees and other exotic plants) in an architectural frame with garlands of fruit and roundel portraits of Dodoens and Clusius, with the letterpress text in two cartouches. It is here coloured by an early hand. The present edition includes the same woodcuts as the first Dutch edition, with some additions for the parts by Clusius. The main text is set in textura type, and each of the thirty books begins with a headpiece of arabesque fleurons, a large decorated initial letter, and an introductory text in fraktur type. Joost Raphelengius's four-page note to the reader and the headings to the woodcuts are set in Robert Granjon's Bastarde civilité (Carter & Vervliet A6). Page 791 erroneously numbered 691. Slightly toned, with some minor spots throughout; the margins of a few pages slightly thumbed, light damp-staining to the lower margin of a few leaves in the rear. Tear in fifth preliminary leaf. Binding cracked at hinges, bottom of spine slightly damaged and some traces of use along the extremities. Overall a very good copy. Krivatsky 3303 (lacking half-title); Nissen, BBI 518; Pritzel 2345; Stafleu & Cowan 1491; Wellcome I, 1812.

        Pharmacopaea Londinensis, of Londische apotheek. In welke alle medicamenten aldaar gebruikelyk, konstig werden toegemaakt. Cierlyker volgens de hedendaagse wyse geschikt. Hoognoodig en seer dienstig voor alle die haar werk in de medicyne maken.Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1696. 12mo. With an engraved title-page by Jan Luyken, showing the interior of an apothecary. Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      Klaversma & Hannema 1179-1180; STCN (1 copy, lacking frontispiece). Wellcome IV, p. 365; WorldCat (5 copies). First and only edition of a Dutch translation of the London Pharmacopoeia, which had appeared in dozens of Latin (beginning in 1618) and English (beginning in 1649) editions. Although a slightly revised Latin edition had appeared in 1677, the Dutch publisher Ten Hoorn apparently based his translation on the 1650 edition, so that his readers miss out on the recipe for Irish whiskey. It nevertheless contains much interesting information for Dutch readers. Among the many ingredients used in the recipes were the wonderful horn of a unicorn, the skull of a man killed by violence (translated as "the skull of a man who died in good health"), twelve types of excrement (for which the Dutch translator used five different words) and fresh cheese (pp. 26-28). A list of other medical titles printed and sold by the publisher appears on the final pages.With a bookplate. Binding soiled and spotted, text with some spots and a few small holes; lacking front endpapers. A good copy of a rare pharmacopoeia.

        Americae Nova Tabula

      Amsterdam 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. Dimensione 550x410 P. D.
