Last and rarest (1640) issue of the first (and only early) edition of a richly illustrated and extremely interesting and important account of a Dutch embassy to Russia in the years 1615 to 1616: an essential primary source for any study of 17th-century Russia (and Scandinavia). The 23 etched views are among the earliest of northwest Russia and its border areas. It was first published in 1619 by Aert Meuris and both the text and the illustrations are here still in the 1619 printing, with only the two title-pages newly printed (in spite of the title-page's "second printing, enlarged and improved"!), so that the beautifully drawn and finely etched illustrations remain crisp and clear.Sweden and Russia had been at war since 1609 and both sides suffered severe losses in the 1615 siege of Pskov (which weakened Sweden's position). The English ambassador in Moscow, John Merrick, initiated peace negotiations and King Gustav II Adolf and Tsar Michael I together asked the States General of the Dutch Republic to send an embassy to Novgorod to assist them. The peace they brokered, leading to the 1617 treaty of Stolbovo, was to last nearly a hundred years. Anthonis Goeteeris (ca. 1574-1660?), bailiff of the Hoge Raad, accompanied the embassy as treasurer and, being a skilled artist, also made numerous drawings. The embassy travelled first by ship to Reval (now Tallin, Estonia) then overland via Narva (Estonia) to the regions arou … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBLE - DUTCH].
Poortman, Bijbel en prent I, p. 233 (cf. pp. 147, 151); cf. Darlow & Moule 3315; for the maps: Poortman & Augusteijn 27.1-6; the prints not in Hollstein; Poortman Bijbel en prent; for the zilver furnishings: Voet, Amst. zilversmeden 448-449. Extra-illustrated large folio edition of the Dutch Statenbijbel (States Bible) with 6 maps and 336 illustrations hand-coloured, the translation officially authorized by the Dutch Reformed Church and published with a privilege from the States General of the Dutch Republic. The 1619 Synod of Dordrecht established a committee to prepare the new translation, and leading Dutch scholars worked on it for nearly twenty years before Paulus Aertsz. van Ravesteyn (ca. 1586-1655) published the first edition in 1637. The 6 maps and the engraved illustrations were produced to be inserted into Van Ravesteyn's folio editions. The series of 336 illustrations by Claes Jansz. Visscher with eight to one leaf, are engraved by Cornelis Danckerts. With some browning, but still generally in good condition and with large margins. The binding has been rebacked, as noted, and the "sharkskin" on the boards has some cracks and wear, but the silver furnishings and gauffered edges are well-preserved. A stunning, large States Bible with 6 maps and 336 illustrations coloured by an early hand with extensive gold. [Attributes: First Edition]

Romae, Sumptibus A. Brugiotti, 1619. Folio. In a later half calf binding with 4 raised bands, gilt lettering and gilt ornamentation to spine. Light wear to extremities, a fine and clean copy. (8), 755, (124) pp. ¶ First edition of Scaccia excleedingly influential and popular work on commercial and exchange law, being one of the very first modern treatises on banking and economic theory to represent the new liberal ideas from the period. From the time of Scaccia's Tractatus Commerciis exchange transactions were an important topic in this literature (Rogers, The civilians and the law of bills in the seventeenth century). The work was reprinted 7 times up until 1738. <br><br>Scaccia did not conceal his liberal attitude concerning loans and other credit transactions. His standard work [the present] on commercial and exchange law received ecclesiastical approval.<br>"He rejected the views of Du Moulin on usury and followed the traditional precepts of canon law. Yet he moderated the theory on the illegality of interest by adapting it to the business practices and economic ideas of his time. Even when there was no 'mora', or delay in repayment of a loan, he wrote, it may be licit to charge interest from the first day of the loan, if the creditor would suffer a loss because of 'damnum emergens' or 'lucrum cessans'. He referred to exchange dealing as an inextricable labyrinth designed to evade the usury laws" (Houkes). <br><br>He justified profit in exchanges from place to place because of differences in value and price: "The fact that, by reason of the greater scarcity or abundanc … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALILEI Galileo (1564-1642)] ? GUIDUCCI Mario (1585-1646)
PIETRO CECCONCELLI, ALLE STELLE MEDICEE. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida ricollocata sul volume; autore e titolo brevi in oro su tassello al dorso; guardie sostituite. 4 pagine non numerate, compreso frontespizio con titolo e ampia illustrazione silografica a carattere astronomico raffigurante le stelle Medicee; le pagine 3 e 4 di dedica dell'opera a Leopoldo Arciduca d'Austria; 54 pagine numerate; mancanza dell'ultima carta, bianca. All'interno, due diagrammi silografati. Prima rarissima edizione di questo importante testo preliminare sulle comete. L'opera, anche se compare con autore Mario Guiducci, suo allievo ed assistente, è in realtà di Galileo stesso, che usò il nome dell'allievo per evitare di incorrere nei rigori dell'Inquisizione dopo l'ammonimento del 1616. Inoltre, è sopravvissuto il manoscritto originale redatto per mano di Galileo. Il testo è una celata risposta all'attacco subito dal gesuita Orazio Grassi nel suo "De Tribus Cometis Anni 1618 Disputatio Astronomica", pubblicato lo stesso anno; nel trattato di Grassi, che costituisce il rendiconto di un’assemblea di gesuiti tenutasi proprio al Collegio e che rimane ancorata ai precetti della filosofia tolemaica, si sostiene che le comete siano corpi celesti privi di luce ed orbitanti su traiettorie predefinite tra Terra e cielo della Luna. Grassi, inoltre, attacca la possibile utilità del cannocchiale galileiano, di cui mette addirittura in dubbio la reale capacità di ingrandire le immagini a distanza. Con la pubblicazione del testo in esame, Galileo avvia la lunga diatriba con alcuni astronomi gesuiti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aparte de exponer el arte de la jineta con sus ejercicios, se ocupa de las condiciones del caballo e incluye un resumen de albeitería. Se encuentran numerosas referencias a su admiración por corceles y jinetes americanos, llegando a hablar de una específica “jineta de las Indias”, escuela de andar a caballo con características muy propias.

BIBLIA ARABICA & LATINA.
Typographia Medicea, Rome, 1619. (345 x 225 mm), [4], 9-462 pp., [1], title in red and black, woodcut illustrations, Arabic & Latin text within borders, gilt lettering on spine, copy in very good condition. Rare 1619 reissue or Titelauflage of the original 1591 stock of the Arabic-Latin Medicean Gospels, with preliminary leaves to make up for the never published first eight pages of the original edition. After the title page, the editor J. A. Rodolus in a dedication to Cardinal Madrutius quite brazenly declares the work with corrections. A third leaf bears the portrait of the Cardinal, and leaf 4 repeats the impressum of 1591, also printed at the end of the work. The Arabic text is printed with Granjon’s famous large font, the catchwords are in the small arabic (Avicenna Arabic). The text lines are almost identical with those of the Arabic issue, but now have an interlinear Latin version added, which was prepared by Antonius Sionita. As in the Arabic version, the pagination is in Arabic numerals on top, and European at the bottom, but the running titles (head-lines) with the names of the Evangelists are in typeset Arabic, with Latin underneath, whereas in the Arabic issue these names featured in woodcut. Between 1590 and 1595 seven Arabic texts were published for the first time by Typographia Medicea in Rome under the direction of Giovani Battista Raimondi (c. 1536-1614). The first publication in 1590 and 1591 was the Gospels in an unidentified Arabic version with the woodcut illustrations of the life of Christ designed by the Florentine painter Antonio Tempesta in two diff … [Click Below for Full Description]

de Montenay, Georgette [French author of Emblemes ou devises chrestiennes, published in Lyon between 1567 and 1571. Montenay has always been regarded as a lady-in-waiting to Jeanne d'Albret, the Protestant Queen of Navarre, partly because she dedicated her work to the Queen. An intriguing aspect of Montenay's Calvinist life is that she was married in 1562 to Guyon de Gout, a devout Catholic]. Pierre Woeiriot de Bouzey (1532-1596?) was a French engraver, goldsmith, painter, sculptor and medallist.
Imprimes es frays de lean Charles Vnckel Libraire a Francfort au Mayn 1619. Contemporary vellum covers. 8vo. 7¼'' x 4¾''. Contains illustrated title, 447 pp, frontiespiece of Georgette de Montenay (1567) by Pierre Woeiriot. The Prefatory and Back Matter are reproduced from a copy in the Bodleian Library by Alison Adams. Georgette de Montenay's work occupies a particularly important position in the history of emblems: firstly, of course, it was written by a woman, and secondly that woman was a member of the Reformed (Calvinist) faith. Indeed Montenay claims that her book gives us the first Christian emblems ('.je croy estre premier chrestiens'). This claim needs to be taken in the context of Montenay's position among Protestants, who at this period, had undergone some kind of personal conversion, 'Renez par l'Evangile'. Earlier emblematic works are of course also Christian, often very overtly so, if not in quite the same way (e.g. Claude Paradin's Devises heroiques (Lyons:, 1551; 1557). Nevertheless, Montenay's Emblemes mark the beginning of the systematic exploitation of emblems for religious propaganda. It is also the first emblem book to use incised engravings (by Pierre Woeiriot) rather than woodcuts for the picturae. It is distinctive for the way in which it calls on the reader to recognise and often complete biblical allusions, both verbal and visual. This edition of 1619 printed in Frankfurt in which, although French resumes its position beneath the pictura, a second Latin version is added, as well as versions in Spanish, Italian, German, English and Dutch (a differen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rarissima edizione di Sant'Omero (risultano invece più comuni le prime edizioni di Lione, apud Horatium Cardon, e di Roma, apud Iacobum Mascardum, entrambe del 1617) del testo scolastico in latino a cura del famoso storico gesuita Famiano Strada (1572-1679), meglio conosciuto per il De Bello Belgico, anche se quest'opera lo rese altrettanto popolare. Trattasi di una raccolta di conferenze, tenute al Collegium Romanum, sullo stile retorico e poetico e altri argomenti letterari. Il libro è ora ricordato per due diverse poesie neolatine in un concorso immaginario, presumibilmente sotto il patrocinio di Leone X, in cui famose figure rinascimentali appaiono in veste di poeti romani. Pietro Bembo appare come Lucrezio, e il poema datogli da Strada ha un posto minore nella preistoria delle telecomunicazioni come anticipazione del telegrafo elettrico. Baldassare Castiglione appare come Claudiano, e la sua poesia, la gara tra il musicista e l'usignolo, è diventato più famosa di qualsiasi opera di Claudiano stesso. Di quest'opera ci sono due belle, ma molto diverse, imitazioni contemporanee in lingua inglese, la prima a cura di John Ford, The Lover's Melancholy (1629), l'altra a cura di Richard Crashaw, Music's Duel.

La profonda trasformazione in atto nella società del tempo, poi, faceva avvertire sempre più il bisogno di nuovi strumenti giuridici adeguati al mutamento.

Custos, Dominicus
Augsburg, Mang 1620 (verso, 1619. Mit gest. Titel, gest. Wappentafel, 129 gest. Portraits von D. Custos sowie Lukas u. Wolfgang Kilian gest., mit rückseitigem Text. 1 Bl. Register. - Angebunden: Signiertes Manuskripf des bayerischen Juristen, Historikers und Archivars Felix Joseph (von) Lipowsky: Materialien, Leitwaege und Ergaenzungen zur Genealogie und Geschichte (...) der Herren Fürsten und Grafen Fugger. München, 1820. 230 num. Bll. HLdr. d. Zt. 29 x 20 cm. VD17 12:648635H; Kress S. 480; Lipperheide Da 8 (fälschlich 1618). - Seltene Ausgabe der schönen Porträtfolge mit deutschem Text. Die männlichen und weiblichen Mitglieder der verschiedenen Zweige des Hauses Fugger sind teils im Rechteck, teils im Oval in halber Figur dargestellt. - Das Manuskript enthält teils umfangreichere Biographien der Abgebildeten, meist mit besonderem Augenmerk auf die Verwandtschaftsbeziehungen. Nicht alle Portraitierten wurden von Lipowsky bearbeitet, so befinden sich zwischen den ausgearbeiteten Biographien auch eine Reihe weiß gebliebener Blätter. Es mag sich um eine Vorarbeit handeln, die woanders eine endgültige Fassung erfuhr. Eine Veröffentlichung des Manuskripts konnte ich allerdings nicht nachweisen, es ist aber sicher mit in die zahlreichen Arbeiten Lipowskys eingeflossen. - Etwas berieben und bestoßen. Vorderer Spiegel und fliegender Vorsatz mit handschriftl Register, wohl auch von Lipowsky verfasst. Kupfertitel verso gestempelt und seitlich mit Hinterlegung. Der Titel des Manuskripts verso gestempelt. [5 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]
