        VITE DI PLUTARCO CHERONEO DE GIL HUOMINI ILLUSTRI GRECI ET ROMANI

      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.

"Folio, 3 parts in 1, pp. [12], 255, [41] index; 519, [81] index; 258, [22] index; large engraved vignette of a galleon on title-p., title printed in red and black, woodcut ornaments and initials; 18th century mottled calf, double-ruled border on covers, morocco label lettered in gilt on gilt-paneled spine, edges stained red; upper joint starting, but generally a very good, handsome copy. & & First edition of Salmasius' important recension of this collection of the lives of 30 Roman emperors, from Hadrian to Numerian, for which he used a 9th century manuscript written at Fulda and now preserved at Bamberg, a direct copy of the prime source held at the Vatican. 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."

First (and only) Edition. Gaspari II, p. 317. RISM T225 (no copies in the U.S. or Great Britain). & & "Tarditi’s most interesting works are those in his collection of 1620. This consists of music for double choir – five psalms and a Magnificat for voices alone and nine psalms, a Magnificat and four Marian antiphons in the concertato style with instrumental accompaniment; together with G.F. Anerio’s Il teatro armonico spirituale (1619), this last-named group of 14 works affords the earliest instance of the use of obbligato instruments in works by Roman composers... 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.

        ARCHITECTURAL CAPRICCIO WITH THE HOLY FAMILY

      - 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.

        Logorithmorum Canonis Descriptio, Seu Arithmeticarum Supputationum Mirabilis abbreviatio. [- Sequitur Tabula Canonis Logarithmorum; Mirifici Logarithmorum Canonis construction; Annotationibus aliquot Henrici Briggii].

      Bartholomaeus Vincentius, Lyons 1620 - Second (first obtainable) edition of his ‘Contructio’ (Horblit 77b, 1619), with the first Continental edition of the ‘Descriptio’ (Horblit 77a, 1614) – "The work which in the history of British science can be placed as second only to Newton’s Principia" (Evans 4). "His ‘Description of the Wonderful Table of Logarithms’ is unique in the history of science in that a great discovery was the result of the unaided original speculation of one individual without precursors and almost without contemporaries in his field." (PMM 116). "Logarithms provided a most important advance in the art of calculation because they reduced multiplication and division to a process of addition and subtraction, and extraction of roots to division." (Dibner 106). "Napier’s invention of logarithms was immediately adopted by mathematicians both in England and on the continent, including Briggs and Ursinus, who introduced logarithms to Kepler." (Norman). Kepler "expressed his enthusiasm in a letter to Napier dated 28 July 1619, printed in the dedication of his ‘Ephemerides’, 1620." (DSB). The ‘Descriptio’ "contains fifty-seven pages of text explaining the uses of logarithms in both plane and spherical trigonometry and ninety pages of tables. The method of producing the table was not described, but Napier indicated that should this work be suitably received, he would publish another (the Constructio) on how they were calculated. He died before he could complete the task, but his son Robert Napier completed and published it in 1619. Napier’s 1614 publication is always referred to as the ‘Descriptio’, and the 1619 volume as the ‘Constructio’." (Tomash). "Napier also did work in spherical trigonometry and in his ‘Rabdologiae seu Numerationes per Virgulas libri II’, Edinburgh, 1617, announced another important invention, ‘Napier’s Bones’. These were rods which could be used to find the product of two numbers in a mechanical way, the quotient of one number divided by another, and square and cube roots. They were the precursors of seventeenth-century and modern calculating machines." (PMM). "Mechanized addition and substraction were introduced in 1642 by Pascal, then 19 years old." (Dibner 107). This edition (the second of the ‘Constructio’ and first Continental edition of the ‘Descriptio’) was published together with a small appendix containing annotations by Henry Briggs on base-ten logarithms (see Norman 339). Presumably most readers were concerned mainly by the applications of logarithms, their construction being of interest only to mathematicians and compilers of tables. While the Descriptio was reprinted many times, and translated into English as early as 1616, the Constructio had to wait until 1889 before an English translation was produced. The offered work is the first reprinting of the two works and is today the earliest accessible edition of the Constructio (the Macclesfield copy of the 1619 edition appears to be the only copy to have appeared at auction in the past 30 years). The last copy of the first edition of the Descriptio sold for $72,000 (Christie's 2007.)In a very few copies of the Lyons edition the title page of the Descriptio carries the date 1619. MacDonald remarks: "On the issue of the Edinburgh edition of 1619, Barthold Vincent would appear to have set out at once about the preparation of an edition for issue at Lyon with the date 1619 on the title. .A possible explanation of this may be that the title-page was originally set up with the date MDCIX, but when it was found that the whole work could not be issued in that year, the date was altered to MDCXX, and a few copies may have been printed before the alteration. The only copy we have found is in the Bibliotheque Nationale."This edition: Honeyman 2292; Erwin Tomash Library N5; Kenney 3071; Macdonald pp.141-43. Three parts in one vol. (as issued), 4to (190 x 128 mm), pp. [viii], 56; [92: tables]; 62, title printed in red and black, mildly browned, some gatherings with a small worm whole [Attributes: First Edition]

Libelle anonyme qui parut le lendemain où le Duc de Luynes, favori de Louis XIII, fut fait Connétable. Il est accusé de tous les maux arrivés en France depuis Louis XIII, et de ne servir que ses propres intérêts en ruinant la France et en abusant un roi si jeune. Charles d'Albert fut fait Duc de Luynes en 1619, et fut le premier de cette lignée. Luynes servit pourtant habilement le roi en lui permettant, par ses intrigues contre Marie de Medicis et Concini, d'acceder au pouvoir, mais recueillant toutes les faveur du roi, il était haï par le peuple et de nombreux politiques tel Richelieu. 8pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Avvertimenti e Regole circa L’Architettura Civile, Scultura, Pittura, Prospettiva et Architettura Militare per Offesa e Difesa di Fortezze.

      Milan Pandolfo Malatesta 1620. - Oblong folio [20.5 x 26.5 cm] 46 ff., including title with engraved arms of Philip III and 6 whole, 8 roughly half- and 34 roughly quarter page engravings. Cancel on p. 42 present. Bound in 18th c quarter vellum and marbled papers over boards, with vellum corners. Unidentified embossed private library stamp on title. Lower edge of title dog-earred; some minor waterstaining at upper edges of initial leaves, growing paler with subsequent leaves. Very good. Very rare first edition of this understudied general architectural treatise from Lombardy, in small folio format, and unusual on two counts: 1) it attempts to distill the contents of a general architectural treatise in brief compass, in a portable format such that it could probably have been utlized "on site"; this is not generally the case with the classic sixteenth century architectural treatises, even those expressly directed to builders rather than humanists, which tended to be in larger formats; and 2) according to the Vagnetti, the brief section on perspective contains an analysis of a specific, well-known picture, Raphael’s ‘Sposalizio’ (albeit, oddly, with the architectural details simplified, above all, the omission of the great 16-sided temple in the background). Although it would seem to be the most obvious thing in the world, we recall no such examples in any of the innumerable perspective treatises we have encountered or handled over many years. (Barca’s knowledge of the picture is a mystery; in 1620, it was in Città di Castello and did not come to Milan until the 19th century, further, as far as we know, it was not engraved.The simplified details and differences between the engraving and the picture almost certainly suggest an intermediary sketch, perhaps a not very accurate one. The work treats arithmetical and geometrical proportion, the Orders (Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and composite), proportion in a section devoted to sculpture, and perspective in painting as well as architecture. Although the proportional figures owe much to Dürer, the models for the Orders are not obviously derivative, and were probably drawn by the author—for what it is worth, Brunet claims that Barca drew all the plates. Next, Barca treats military fortification offensive and defensive, with theoretical diagrams as well as some plans the author has designed for a specific locale (Moschetto). The Milanese Barca worked mainly in Lombardy; his first documented works were in Milan in the 1570’s (the prison of the Palazzo di Giustizia and the façade of Palazzo della Canonico (destroyed). By 1577, his name is inscribed in the rolls of the College of Engineers in Milan, and in 1583, in conjunction with Seregni, he proposed an alteration to the duomo. His projects for the King of Spain are disputed. In the first decade of the 17th century, he was back in Milan, attached to the Fabbrica of the duomo for a variety of projects (for a full listing, see DBI). NUC lists Chicago and Cleveland; OCLC adds no new copies, but we have located two at the Getty. A facsimile was published in Como in 1997. * Brunet I.651; Cicognara 412; Vagnetti EIIIb12; Riccardi I.79; R. Bossaglia in DBI VI.267-68; not in Breman/Bury (mention, p. 21) and not in RIBA; Cockle 812 (erroneously calling for two "large" folding plates, as the Chicago and 2 Getty copies show, all of the plates are within the pagination.).

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. (Arbour, 'L'ere baroque en France', n°9742. Brunet, II, 1496. G. Dotoli, 'Traductions de l'italien en francais au XVIIe s.', p.242). Relie avec: [OGIER(Francois)]. Jugement et censure du livre de la doctrine curieuse, de Francois Garasse. Paris, 1623. Bel exemplaire, tres frais, bien relie a l'epoque..

        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.
