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 dedicate
Imprimes es frays de lean Charles Vnckel Libraire a Francfort au Mayn, 1619. 1619., 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Techener 1103 : "livre rare, lorsqu'il est complet ; les deux dernières pièces ne se trouvent que dans peu d'exemplaires. Ce recueil contient de nombreuses pièces fort curieuses qu'on chercherait vainement ailleurs, sur l'histoire de la Champagne. Le titre porte de 1390 à 1580 ; mais les 2 premières pièces Contrats de mariage de Thibault de Champagne et de s fille Blanche sont datées 1219 et 1225. Le Procès verbal d'une assemblée de l'échevinage de Troyes est daté de 1594 ; et les Mémoires de Mergey sont de 1613." Camuzat ajoutait de nouvelles pièces lorsqu'il les trouvait. C'est pour cette raison que beaucoup d'exemplaires ne renferment pas tout. Techener donne le détail de tout ce que contient le recueil.Nicolas Camusat, chanoine de la cathédrale de Troyes naquit dans cette ville en 1575 et y mourut en 1665. Il avait sauvé d'une perte imminente plusieurs manuscrits vendus à un papetier comme inutiles par un prieur des Jacobins de Troyes, qui en ignorait le prix. Une fois en possession de ces richesse historiques, il s'appliqua à les publier. Socard. Hommes célèbres de l'Aube p. 74. - Corrard de Bréban, 134-136 - Betz 145.

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.

SCACCIA, Sigismondo (1564?-1634)
Jacopo Mascardi per Andrea Brugiotti, 1619. In folio (mm 205x308); pp. (8), 755, (125). Senza legatura. Frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero con vignetta in rame al centro. Testo su due colonne. Piccoli fori sul titolo senza danno al testo, lievi fioriture occasionali, ma nel complesso ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE. Questa celebre opera, che ebbe subito grande successo e fu più volte ristampata (7 edizioni fino al 1738), rappresenta uno dei primi trattati moderni di teoria economica e bancaria e riflette le nuove idee liberali che andavano diffondendosi in quegl'anni in materia di credito, operazioni commerciali di pubblica utilità , valore e cambio. "Le ragioni della fama che lo Scaccia acquistò con questo trattato sono da ricercare soprattutto nel fatto che esso, con la sua esauriente trattazione, rappresenta un ausilio pratico, prezioso per colui che doveva applicarsi alla fattispecie del diritto commerciale non avendo in questa materia un panorama giuridico di riferimento molto ampio. La profonda trasformazione in atto nella società del tempo, poi, faceva avvertire sempre più il bisogno di nuovi strumenti giuridici adeguati al mutamento. Il Tractatus venne, quindi, ad inserirsi proprio nello scenario di questo profondo cambiamento, rispondendo alle nuove esperienze avvertite, quotidianamente, nella prassi dei rapporti economici... Nel Tractatus de commerciis et cambio ritroviamo le linee dottrinali e dogmatiche del sapere dello Scaccia, maturate attraverso l'esperienza genovese. In esso le fonti, accanto al vasto numero di grandi giuristi, rivelano la conoscenza approfon … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GRASSI, Orazio]
Marci Naccarini. 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 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.

Woodcut arms of James I on title, large historiated woodcut initials, library stamp "Bibl. Gust. C. Galletti Flor," on blank margin of title, charming engraved armorial bookplate of "Francisi Riccardi de Vernaccia" on pastedown, Baron Landau's beneath. Light age yellowing, some minor spotting, a few leaves browned. A good copy in contemporary English calf, covers bordered with double gilt rule, spine with raised bands, double gilt ruled in compartments, gilt fleurons at centers, tail of spine restored, joints cracked and darkened. a.e.r. First edition of Paolo Sarpi's greatest and most influential work, dedicated to James I, published pseudonymously with the name Pietro Soave Polano, an anagram of Paolo Sarpi Veneto (plus o). The editor, Marco Antonio de Dominus, polished the text and has been accused of falsifying it, however recent comparison with a manuscript corrected by Sarpi himself shows that his alterations were unimportant. Translations into other languages followed: English by Nathaniel Brent and Latin in 1620, made partly by Adam Newton and French and German editions. The work was widely read for at least the next two centuries. "Forced upon an unwilling papacy by the Emperor CharlesV, who was anxious to put an end to the dissensions caused by religious strife, the Council (of Trent) first met in 1545.

Rossi, Logic and the Art of Memory, p.92: «Between 1617 and 1619 (at the same time as the young Descartes began to express his interest in Lullism and the arts of memory) the works by Johannes Paepp were published in Lyons. One of these works, the Schenkelius detectus seu memoria artificialis hactenus occultata was a detailed commentary on Schenckel's Ars memoriae, a work which Descartes knew well. In the Artificiosae memoriae fundamenta and the Introductio facilis in praxim artificiosae memoriae, Paepp set out to expound the Aristotelian, Ciceronian and Thomist doctrines on memory, but he had also patently been influenced by the Lullist tradition, and was familiar with its most significant exponents, from Bruno to Alsted. Following in the footsteps of Alsted, he fiercely criticized the denigrators of the art, and defended the idea of the interdependence of logic and mnemotechnics: while logic was neces … [Click Below for Full Description]

[BIBLE - DUTCH].
1619. 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.

GRASSI Orazio
Naccarini Marco, 1619. in-4, pp. 72, leg. moderna mezza pergamena, carta decorata ai piatti. Bella vignetta al tit. con la cometa nella costellazione della Libra e alcune piccole silografie nel testo. Edizione originale di questo opuscolo, apparso sotto lo pseudonimo di Lotario Sarsi, che contiene la replica del Grassi al "Discorso delle Comete" di Mario Guiducci. Il Grassi, professore di matematica al Collegio Romano, con il suo ''De tribus cometis anni MDCXVIII disputatio astronomica'', aveva suscitato la reazione del Guiducci che ne contestò le affermazioni facendosi portavoce di Galileo; il Grassi intuì che l'opera era suggerita da questi e rispose, sotto pseudonimo, con questa ''Libra''. Guiducci si affrettò ad una risposta provvisoria in una Lettera aperta al proprio insegnante nella quale si giustifica ''dell'imputationi dategli da Lotario Sarsi'' (1620), mentre lo stesso Galileo, resosi conto che era in gioco la propria reputazione, completava il capolavoro polemico Il Saggiatore (1623). Il Grassi unisce qui i commenti di Scheiner alle sue personali osservazioni scientifiche e a forti attacchi personali al Galileo. Suddivisa in tre sezioni l'opera è fondamentalmente un attacco alle teorie galileiane e copernicane. Edizione assai rara (censita in sole due biblioteche italiane). Ottimo esempl., quasi immune dalle consuete arrossature.

SCACCIA, Sigismondo (1564?-1634)
Jacopo Mascardi per Andrea Brugiotti, 1619. In folio (mm 205x308); pp. (8), 755, (125). Senza legatura. Frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero con vignetta in rame al centro. Testo su due colonne. Piccoli fori sul titolo senza danno al testo, lievi fioriture occasionali, ma nel complesso ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE. Questa celebre opera, che ebbe subito grande successo e fu più volte ristampata (7 edizioni fino al 1738), rappresenta uno dei primi trattati moderni di teoria economica e bancaria e riflette le nuove idee liberali che andavano diffondendosi in quegl'anni in materia di credito, operazioni commerciali di pubblica utilità , valore e cambio. "Le ragioni della fama che lo Scaccia acquistò con questo trattato sono da ricercare soprattutto nel fatto che esso, con la sua esauriente trattazione, rappresenta un ausilio pratico, prezioso per colui che doveva applicarsi alla fattispecie del diritto commerciale non avendo in questa materia un panorama giuridico di riferimento molto ampio. La profonda trasformazione in atto nella società del tempo, poi, faceva avvertire sempre più il bisogno di nuovi strumenti giuridici adeguati al mutamento. Il Tractatus venne, quindi, ad inserirsi proprio nello scenario di questo profondo cambiamento, rispondendo alle nuove esperienze avvertite, quotidianamente, nella prassi dei rapporti economici... Nel Tractatus de commerciis et cambio ritroviamo le linee dottrinali e dogmatiche del sapere dello Scaccia, maturate attraverso l'esperienza genovese. In esso le fonti, accanto al vasto numero di grandi giuristi, rivelano la conoscenza approfon … [Click Below for Full Description]

[manuscript; original artwork]
1619. 1916-1960. Paperback. Fine. 16 loose leaves, folded once to create 64 pages (each page about 7-by-9 inches); contains 25 extraordinary drawings of aardvarks and ant-eaters, rendered in bright blue or black ink, frequently in an etched or cross-hatched style reminiscent of woodcuts. With handwritten captions in Russian, Latvian, English, and German, and dated from 1916-1960. Studies of the animals in the wild or captivity, drawn perhaps from life, but also from other images, such as "The young ant-bear or aardvark, and its foster-parent. The illustrated London News, Sept. 5, 1936." (The foster parent, by the way, is a human.) All drawings are remarkably bold and adept, the bright blue in particular lends an air of pop or modern art, while others are more formal or refined. Unique, and simply wonderful.

ARISTOTLE.
Lutetiae Parisorum Typis Regus. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. 4 volumes in 2. Folio, 400 x 247 mms., pp. [xxxii], 572 573 - 1251 [1252 blank, 1253 - 1286 Index]; [iv], 131 [132 blank], 470 471 - 1104 [1105 - 1136 Index], title-pages in red and black, with portrait vignette of Aristotle on each title-page, contemporary mottled calf, gilt spine; spines cracked but firm, binding dried and a bit worn, with the bookplate of the Association of Convent Schools on the recto of the front free end-paper in each volume. In The Canterbury Tales (1387 - 1400) Geoffrey Chaucer introduced the "general reader" to Aristotle in the persona of the "Clerk of Oxenford," who "For hym was levere have at his beddes heed/ Twenty bookes, clad in blak or reed,/ Of Aristotle and his philosophie." Thomas De Quincey finished "our system of metaphysics by roofing the whole with Duval's enormous Aristotle." My favoritive, however, is that from Bertrand Russell: "Aristotle could have avoided the mistake of thinking that women have fewer teeth than men, by the simple device of asking Mrs. Aristotle to keep her mouth open while he counted. He did not do so because he thought he knew." Joseph William Moss in his Manual of Classical Bibliography (1837) wrote that this edition, "This edition is the best, and most esteemed, which has yet appeared, of this philosopher; we could not have any great opinion of it were we to judge by the mediocrity of its price, and the little estimation in which it is held in commerce, where copies, except they are in very good preservation, have little value attached to them."
