        Theatro de los Dioses de la Getilidad - primera parte

      Antonia Ramirez, Salamanca 1620 - Rare 1st edition, in vellum binding which is not original but very old; the binder used a leaf which has a portion of a royal seal on the rear free endpaper with the date 1726; also on the obverse of that leaf is written, "Huno emi libry pothuidie Kalendar gbxu 1728 - JR Vn." which I believe is the binder's signature; I may very well not have all the letters right. The spine is inscribed "Teatro de Los Dioses". Vellum is in good condition; an old rip in the rear cover has been sewn shut. Otherwise it is rippled, a little soiled, and darkened on the spine. The endpapers likewise are rippled and creased, and written on by several different people. The text is likewise good; begins with the engraved title page, which has been reinforced on the foreedge and has an old owner's name at the bottom. The first introductory page also has owner's writing. There is no loss of text anywhere, but there are water stains here and there, the worst being a brown stain at the upper right from p. 897 to the end. The final page of the 'Tabla' (table of contents, appearing after the text) has short tears in the foreedge. All text is Spanish. Note: the second volume of this work was published in 1623, and a third (by a different author) in 1688. [Attributes: First Edition]

Small folio, 30 x 19 cm, in a nineteenth- century binding of full, burgundy morocco, with gilt title to spine, a.e.g. This book is comprised of a series of portraits with biographical, descriptive, and, in the case of writers, bibliographical notes compiled by Henry Holland, along with two or three lines of Latin verse, generally by Arnold Buchel. The individuals included all lived during the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary, and Elizabeth, with a special emphasis on reformers and opponents of the Papacy. So Queen Mary is not represented and Lady Jane Grey is. In the first part there are 35 engraved portraits of monarchs, peers, and famous commoners, and 2 subject plates (Elizabeth's Tomb and Prince Henry's Hearse), and in the second part (Tomus secundus) 30 portraits of famous divines. The portraits, engraved by the talented siblings Willem and Magdalena van de Passe, are from contemporary oil paintings and are praised by Hind as "the most trustworthy series of English portraits published up to that time." They are mostly half-lengths or busts in plain oval (with parapet) in rectangle, or merely in plain rectangle. The subjects are identified in the margin or round the oval. All the plates have type-printed text on the back, with four exceptions (Elizabeth's Tomb, Martin Frobisher, John, 2nd Lord Harington, and John Bale). The engraved title-plate features an architectural design with four emblematic figures, child angels supporting a roundel map of England inscribed Angliae brevis descriptio, and a view of London and the Thames in a cartouche at the botto

      Venetia: Marco Ginami, 1620. Later edition n. Hardcover. 229 x 149 mm (9 x 5 7/8"). Two volumes. Translated into Italian by Lodovico Domenichi and Lionardo Ghini. Later edition. EXTREMELY APPEALING CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN CALF, LAVISHLY GILT, covers framed by multiple plain and dotted rules and geometric roll, diapered central panel with slender fleuron in each compartment, flat spines with one elongated panel formed by multiple plain and dotted rules and floral filigree roll and containing three fleurons, holes for ties (now lacking), all edges gilt (apparently--though not certainly--with some very expert repairs to spine ends and edges). WITH 54 ORNATE WOODCUT FRAMES AND TONDO PORTRAITS to accompany each biography, printer's device on title pages, woodcut decorative initials throughout. Title page of volume II with later ink inscription, "A. Barbet / 374i." Indications of bookplate removal on front pastedowns. Cf. Moss, p. 521. Cf. Schweiger, p. 268. Four leaves with short marginal tears, occasional faint dampstains to head margin, isolated minor smudges and foxing, the text otherwise clean, crisp, and smooth. Joints with minimal rubbing, a couple of small stains to boards, other trivial defects, but THE BINDINGS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, the gilt still bright, and generally with only minor wear. This is an attractive vernacular edition of an enduring classic, in ornately decorated contemporary bindings. The second century Stoic philosopher Plutarch was a key source for Greek and Roman history, and one of Western civilization's most influential authors. His writing is of lasting interest because he had a particular ability to delineate character and present the vagaries of history in a way that engages as well as instructs. In his celebrated "Lives," he pairs biographies of Greeks with Romans--the tragic Spartan reformers Agis and Cleomenes, for example, with the Roman revolutionary Gracchi brothers--pointing out the parallels and philosophizing on their fall. Under the spell of Platonic philosophy, Plutarch turns his biographies into examples of the right and wrong paths of life. Our volumes comprise a reprint of Lodovico Domenichi's 1560 Venetian translation of the "Lives" into Italian in two parts, based upon Greek texts examined by Lionardo M. Ghini, and with annotations by Francesco Sansovino. Domenichi (1515-1564) was renowned for his editions and translations of classical authors, including Xenophon, Plutarch, Polybius, and Pliny the Elder. Sansovino (1521-83), son of the sculptor Jacopo, was a scholar printer in Venice. This translation was quite popular, being reprinted at least eight times, but all of these editions are rare, and they would seldom be found as richly bound as ours. Our bindings are sumptuously decorated with much intricate and delicate gilt, and the elaboration is tightly controlled, giving an overall impression almost of being covered with golden lace. While the boards are identically illuminated, the spines are slightly different, probably due in part to the fact that one volume is 1,000 pages thick and the other about half that size. The effect of this variety within an overall similarity is a pleasing consequence of the unusual division.

Salmasius adds to his own copious notes those of Isaac Casaubon. Salmasius's notes display ""not only massive erudition but massive good sense as well; his perception of the meaning of his author is commonly very acute and his corrections of the text are frequently highly felicitous"" (EB-11). & & Claude de Saumaise (1588-1653) was a classical scholar who became professor at Leiden in 1631 taking the vacant chair last held by Scaliger. He was widely influential among his contemporaries but is best known for his polemic with Milton prompted by his Defensio regia pro Carolo I of 1649."

Tarditi’s works do not reveal the identification with the content of the text and the representation of emotions which characterize the genuine monodic style: they are at once typical of an age of transition and of the Roman tradition."

        A Defensative against the poyson of supposed Prophesies

      [London:] by W. Jaggard, and to be sold by Mathew Lownes,, 1620. Not hitherto confuted by the Pen of any man, which being grounded, either upon the warrant and Authority of Old painted Bookes, Expositions of Dreames, Oracles, Revelations, Invocations of damned Spirits, Judicials of Astrologie, or any other kinde of pretended knowledge whatsoever, De futuris contigentibus; have beene causes of great disorder in the Common-wealth, especially among the simple and unlearned people. Very needfull to be published, considering the great offence, which grew by most palpable and grosse errors in Astrologie … Now newly revised, and divided into divers severall Heads and Chapters. Small folio (270 × 169 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked with original label laid down, inner hinges reinforced with cloth, corners restored, endpapers sometime renewed. Head and tailpieces throughout, title page with intricate engraved border; lacking initial blank. Contemporary gift inscription to head of title page partially erased; bookplate of Robert, marquess of Crewe (1858–1945). The occasional mark here and there, early ink notation to foot of one leaf, title page folded in at fore margin to preserve the border. Binding somewhat bumped and rubbed. An excellent copy. First published in 1583, this second edition was published posthumously. Northampton (1540–1614) left the most remarkable body of writings of any early Stuart politician with the exception of Sir Francis Bacon. This treatise, originally dedicated to Walsingham, argued that "prophecies of wicked men are a kind of science which was never grafted by our heavenly Father" (Peck, Northampton, 220). Northampton emphasized his own religious orthodoxy while apparently aiming at the magico-philosophical circles of Richard Harvey and John Dee.

      - XVIIth Century. Oil on Canvas. Circle of Viviano Codazzi. Viviano Codazzi was an Italian painter of landscapes or vedute during the Baroque period, active mainly in Rome and Naples. Born in Bergamo, he is also known as Viviano Codagora or il Codagora but by 1620 he had reached Naples, where he probably continued training with Cosimo Fanzago. In Naples, he also worked with Domenico Gargiulo in completing large fanciful landscapes; with Codazzi painting the architecture, and Gargiulo, the figures. This type of collaboration would be common for Codazzi, and after relocating to Rome after the Masaniello revolt, he also collaborated with Antoine Gobau, Michelangelo Cerquozzi, Jan Miel, Filippo Lauri, and Vicente Giner. He painted in a style influenced by a circle of Dutch painters active in Rome, known as Bamboccianti, including Pieter van Laer. He is best known as one of the earliest practitioners in Italy of painting architectural veduta of Rome and Roman ruins, both fanciful (capriccio) or realistic (veduta realistica). His son Niccolò Codazzi (1642-1693) was also a painter of vedute. Viviano was a strong influence on Canaletto and Bernardo Bellotto. His depiction of St. Peters Basilica in 1630 shows one of the last depictions of the facade without Bernini's colonnade. HIGH-RESOLUTION PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

        The Honour of the Married Clergie

      (24) 208, 229-345, (25)pp 1620 - Full early calf leather binding. A very scarce copy of Hall's work with engraved title page and decorative head and tail pieces and illuminated initials. Not seen at auction anywhere since 1982. Includes in Latin and English the text of a manuscript on the subject found at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and an excerpt from an epistle of Erasmus on the subject of marriage and the clergy. Joseph Hall (July 1, 1574 - September 8, 1656), English bishop and satirist, was born at Bristow Park, near Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. Bishop Hall's polemical writings,were vigorous and effective,and many of his devotional writings have been often reprinted. It is by his early work as the censor of morals and the unsparing critic of contemporary literary extravagance and affectations that he is best known. Condition: The binding is split in the centre and the second section is detached. Page 147 is loose is detached but present. The front board is attachedand the rear board is detached but present. The front inner hinge is strained and holding by one cord only. There is some wear to the extremities including some bumping to the corners and some small worm holes to the rear board. The spine is chipped with loss to the top and bottom and is becoming detached. It is split in the centre and at the top. Internally the book is generally clean and bright apart from some mild spots in places and the odd handling mark. There is a small worm hole tothe top of the first few pages. The top corner of the title page is missing and the edgesare a little tattered. Overall thebinding needs work (though should be rescued as is early and complete)but the book is quite clean internally and is a complete copy of an extremelyscarce book that would benefit from a rebind or repair.

"Nous lirons cette histoire comme le moment inaugural ou se joue simultanement, pour la folie, sa mise au ban de la societe ( ) ou se noue un ensemble: fous/enfermes/laids. ( ). Il anticipe ce que le classicisme, moins d'un siecle plus tard, enoncera comme dogme: la Raison, erigee en principe universel, est intelligence" (cf. Anik Kouba, 'La "laideur" des fous', 'Communications', 1995, vol. 60, n°60, p. 49-61). Garzoni, qui place son ouvrage sous l'autorite d'un celebre medecin du temps, Bernadino Paterno, jette les fondements d'une l'ebauche d'une nosologie psychiatrique: les "Frenetiques" (discours II), les "Melancholiques" (discours III), les "Lunatiques" (discours XVII), etc. L'ouvrage assure ainsi la transition entre les representations allegoriques de la folie au Moyen-Age, et celle, contemporaine, de la description de la deraison fondee sur des observations de cas de folie.

        Informacion a favor del derecho que tienen los nacidos en las indias a ser preferidos en las prelacias, dignidades, canongias, y otros beneficios eclesiasticos, y oficios seculares de ellas

      1620 - Defending the rights of the creole and Indians rights of the Americas; requesting citizenship for the natives. 1620. Madrid. Viuda de Alonso Martin. In folio (305 mm x 215 mm). 12 ff. Modern half vellum over cloth. Very good. Ortiz de Cervantes, born in Lima, was a Procurator General for Cuzco and Lima; he travelled to Madrid where he had printed one of the earliest manifestations for the creole rights in regards to government in the Indies. That he did with his “Memorial que trata de la perpetuidad de los Encomenderos de Indios del Perú, con juridicion en sus pueblos, medio eficaz para que este Reyno se restaure, conserve, y aumente” (1617). This imprint is harsher and “straitghtforward” in its tone. Furthermore, in more than one aspect its a groundbreaking statement, asking for citizenship for natives and making a strong argument and rightfullness of appointing creoles to positions in the colonial administration and Church Offices. Ortiz de Zárate advirtió en aquel texto que hacía falta desarrollar una política más activa en la protección de la población nativa; la muerte y la huida de los indígenas les quitaba la mano de obra imprescindible para el desarrollo de la economía colonial y su reclamo se extendió en dos nuevos trabajos, el primero titulado "Información en favor del derecho que tienen los nacidos en las Indias a ser preferidos ." (que ahora ofrecemos en su segunda edición) y el siguiente, impreso un año más tarde, "Parabien al Rey D. Felipe IIII N. S. que da la cabeza del Reyno del Piru." (Madrid, 1620). Los tres ensayos de Ortiz de Cervantes componen un cuerpo de peticiones muy directas, elaboradas por un representante de la elite criolla hispanoamericana y dirigidas al propio monarca español. Fueron dados a la luz apenas ocho años después del texto de Fray Juan Zapata de Sandoval, el mexicano que elevara una petición de justicia distributiva por primera vez en la historia hispanoamericana. Sin duda, ambos autores ocupan un sitial de honor en la producción intelectual de América. Ortiz de Cervantes, designado Oidor (juez) de la Real Audiencia de Lima en 1628, dio en la obra que aquí ofrecemos las razones históricas que justifican su reclamo en defensa de los naturales de Indias, los que deben ser preferidos por Su Majestad, y justificó por primera vez el concepto de ciudadanía para los nativos. Para favorecer esta selección, indicó que los virreyes, obispos y audiencias “informen de los sujetos capaces y beneméritos de ellas, y que cada año el Virrey envíe relación de méritos y servicios, así de lo Eclesiástico como de lo secular.” Fruto del Patronato Real firmado entre la Santa Sede y la Corona española, ésta debía designar las prelaturas de Indias, y en virtud de esta selección Ortiz de Cervantes reclamaba la prioridad de los ciudadanos locales.

        The History of Don-Quichote.

      London: Edward Blount, 1620 - 2 volumes, small quarto (177 × 131 mm). Modern period-style limp vellum, overlapping fore-edges, green silk ties, by Bernard Middleton. Housed in a custom green cloth folding case. Without the blank after engraved title in vol. I, rule above running headline in vol. I and headline in vol. II occasionally shaved, tear to upper outer corner sig. P7 vol. II with loss of two letters. With the occasional mark or minor stain, overall a very good copy, clean and fresh. Engraved title in each volumes. Small book labels of Michael Curtis Phillips to rear inside covers. First complete edition in English (second edition of the first part, first edition of the second), translated by Dublin-born Thomas Shelton. "The signs of haste in the translation, which took Shelton only forty days, do not hide his verve, command of Spanish, and knowledge of Spain James Fitzmaurice-Kelly's introduction to Shelton's translation claims that John Fletcher's Knight of the Burning Pestle was derived from Shelton, as was Cardenio (1613), a lost play by Shakespeare and Fletcher" (ODNB). This is an unusually good and fresh copy of a book that is typically found in flawed condition. It is complete with both engraved titles, with no made-up or supplied leaves, and is unwashed. It was formerly lot 123 at Christie's sale, 25 June 1980 (Tobias Rodgers) when it was bound in one volume in green half morocco. Its present binding is an excellent imitation of early seventeenth-century English limp vellum by one of the modern masters of historical bookbinding technique.
