        Nebulo Nebulonum; hoc est, Iocoseria Modernae Nequitiae Censura; qua Hominum Sceleratorum fraudes, Doli ac versutiae aeri aëriq[ue] exponuntur publice: Carmine Iambico Dimetro adornata a Joanne Flitnero, Franco, Poëta Laureato

      Frankfurt a.M: Jakob de Zetter, 1620 8vo (156x98 mm); contemporary blind-ruled vellum over boards, ink title on spine; [8], 164, [4, of which the last 3 are blank] pp. Engraved title-page (outer margin slightly trimmed) and 33 satirical engraved illustrations. Slightly browned, wormholes in the inner margin not affecting the text, all in all a very good, genuine copy. On the front fly-leaf contemporary dedication note by a "Petr. Much." to a certain "Doctor Fredericus".FIRST EDITION, dedicated to the brothers Joannes Jacobus, Dominicus and Joannes Porsch, of the free Latin adaptation by Johann Flittner of Thomas Murner's (1475-1537) Schelmen Zunft, a collection of satirical poems first published in 1512 and inspired by Brant's famous Narrenschiff. Other editions of Nebulo Nebulonum were published in 1634, 1636, 1644 and 1663. A Dutch translation appeared in Leeuwarden in 1634 and 1645.The work is at the same time a curious emblem book, which makes fun of the customs of Flittner's time and censors the corrupt manners of his contemporary fellows, sparing no social class. If the clergy is the most heavily and frequently attacked, all professions are taken into account, especially those who use words to deceive and seduce other people like jurists, councillors, clerics, and preachers. The volume contains 33 poems, each illustrated by an allegorical engraving and accompanied by two mottoes, one for the poem and one for the plate, and by an explanation in prose.The lively illustrations, very likely designed by the publisher Johann de Zetter, show the daily life of the time, depicting costumes, interior of homes, and indoor and outdoor activities.VD17, 1:029198C; OCLC, 25769668; J.

        TRATTATO DELLE PIANTE & IMMAGINI DE SACRI EDIFIZI DI TERRA SANTA DISEGNATE IN JERUSALEMME SECONDO LE REGOLE DELLA PERSPECTTIVA...

      Florence: Pietro Cecconcelli, 1620. First Callot Edition. Hardcover. Small Ex libris of Sefik E. Atabey on front pastedown; ink stains on the title page and last leaf with some slight transference to other pages. Small hole from ink in last leaf affecting one letter, small hole in the title page blank margin from ink, piece excised (2-3/4" x 4-3/4") from upper corner of plate 43 with no apparent loss of image; minor marginal stains; burn hole in F1, no loss of text. A Very Good copy. Jacques Callot. Small folio (7-1/8" x 10-1/4") bound in 18th century tree calf leather, gilt ruled and decorated spine with the cypher "RD" or "RLD," edges speckled blue-green; marbled endpapers; [10], 65, [1] pages: [1], [4], A2, B1, C2-F2, G1, H2-I2, L2, M1, N2-R2, S1, T2-V2, X1, Y2-Z2, Aa-Cc2, Dd1, Ee2-Qq2, Rr1, Ss2-Vv2. Engraved architectural title page, 34 double-page plates showing 46 plans and views by Jacques Callot, including a plan of Jerusalem after Antonio de Angelis (1578), woodcut printer's device at end. The first edition of this rare work was published in 1609 in Rome with plates by Antoine Tempesta, with whom the celebrated French engraver Jacques Callot (1592-1635) later worked and with whom he went to Florence in 1614. It was there that the dedicatee of this edition, Cosimo II de'Medici, commissioned the plates for this edition. Callot reworked several of the original plates and added 9 new ones. They are unique in the work of Callot and made at the beginning of his most productive period. The format of the work is unusual. The plates were apparently printed first, on double-page sheets, then descriptive letterpress for each plate was set up to be printed on the versos of the plates. If there was more text than could be accommodated on the two versos, a single leaf was set up to print the remainder of the text. These odd leaves were signed as part of the ordinary alphabetic sequence. The author, the Franciscan Bernardo Amico, was Prior of his Order at Jerusalem from 1596 onwards for a period of five years. Many of the buildings now lost are described as they were still preserved at the turn of the sixteenth century." [Blackmer Catalog] Atabey 20 [this copy, not mentioning the excision]; Sotheby's Atabey Catalog 2002 lot 25 (this copy, mentioning the excision).

        Brief mit eigenh. U. ("Carol").

      Günzburg, 18. November 1620. - ¾ S. Folio. Mit Adresse (Faltbrief). In Sachen des Pfarrers zu Ersingen wegen des Pfarrhofs und des Geitreidezehenten. - Der Sohn von Erzherzog Karl II., schon früh für den geistlichen Stand bestimmt, war 1608 gegen den Willen der schlesischen Fürsten und Stände vom Domkapitel zum Bischof von Breslau gewählt worden. "Er setzte die Restaurationstätigkeit fort und beanspruchte das ius reformandi im Bistumsland, so daß es auf dem Fürstentag 1609 zu offenen Spannungen kam. Karl protestierte vergeblich gegen den schlesischen Majestätsbrief Kaiser Rudolfs II. von 1609, in dem es vorwiegend um Religionsfreiheit, Kirche und Schule der evangelischen Bürger seiner Residenz Neisse ging. Wegen des Eingriffs der schlesischen Stände in seine landesherrlichen Rechte ließ er 1616 den Rädelsführer der Stadt enthaupten. Nach Ausbruch des böhmischen Aufstandes mußte Karl, der 1613 zum Bischof von Brixen gewählt und damit Reichsfürst geworden war, 1619 zu seinem Schwager König Sigmund III. Wasa von Polen fliehen und ging 1620 nach Brixen. Erst 1621 kehrte er nach Neisse zurück. Seit 1618 war Karl auch Hoch- und Deutschmeister und reiste 1624, zum Vizekönig von Portugal ausersehen, nach Madrid, wo er wenig später starb" (DBE). - Etwas angestaubt und gebräunt und mit winzigen Papierdurchbrüchen in den Faltungen.

        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

      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. Palau, 205772. See Carlos Gálvez-Peña for further information on this imprint at JCB.

        Novum Organum

      1620. First Edition . BACON, Francis. Novum Organum. London: John Bill, 1620. Folio, contemporary sprinkled calf skillfully rebacked and recornered. $25,000.First edition of Bacon's Novum Organum (a ""new instrument"" to replace the old Organon of Aristotle), which had a revolutionary impact on early modern science by laying the foundation of the inductive method.Bacon's ""insistence on making science experimental and factual, rather than speculative and philosophical, had powerful consequences. He saw clearly the limitations of Aristotelian and scholastic methods and the growing breach between the thinking of his time and that of the Middle Ages is more precisely formulated than in that of, say, Tommaso Campanella or Giordano Bruno. As a philosopher Bacon's influence on Locke and through him on subsequent English schools of psychology and ethics was profound. Leibniz, Huygens and particularly Robert Boyle were deeply indebted to him, as were the Encyclopédistes, and Voltaire, who called him 'le père de la philosophie experimentale"" (PMM). Bacon planned a magnum opus titled Instauratio Magna in six parts, of which he completed only two. This, the Novum Organum, which has remained his most influential work, was intended to be the second part; the first part was not completed until 1623 as De Augmentis Scientiarum, a greatly extended version of his 1605 Advancement of Learning. Thus the Novum Organum’s famous allegorical title page—with its evocative engraving of a ship in full sail passing through the Pillars of Hercules—refers to the work as the Instauratio Magna. The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society were soon to be filled with exactly the kind of ""Histories"", careful collections of experimental data, that Bacon here recommends. As usual, this copy is the second state, with leaf e3 cancelled and reprinted on e4 with errata added and only the name of the printer Bill present. Text in Latin. Gibson 103b. Grolier/Horblit 8b (1st issue). Norman I:98. PMM 119. Ownership inscription at head of title; 18th-century manuscript notes on both sides of the initial blank; some underlining and marginal marks in the preface. From the library of the Irish classical scholar John Walker (17691833), with his ownership inscription at the head of the engraved title ""John Walker, T.C.D."" (retrospectively dated 1815), and with his manuscript notes in Latin about the book on both sides of the initial blank leaf. Walker entered Trinity College, Dublin, in January 1786, ascending by stages to Bachelor of Divinity in 1800. Inspired by the practice of the apostles and rejecting all later developments in church authority, Walker founded a group called the Church of God (his followers were known pejoratively as Separatists or Walkerites). Knowing this to be incompatible with his status as a Church of Ireland clergyman, Walker offered to resign his fellowship of Trinity but was instead expelled. He was then forced to support himself by lecturing and writing until the last year of his life, when Trinity College, Dublin, granted him a pension in amends for their earlier treatment of him.Very infrequent scattered light foxing, with occasional marginal pinpoint wormholing, not affecting readability. Age-wear to contemporary calf boards, with a few cuts, wormholes on rear board. A desirable copy in very good condition of this landmark.

Nous n'avons pas trouvé trace de cette édition dans les catalogues des bibliothèques en ligne, ni à la British Library, ni dans les catalogues anglais ou français, Russes, ect.

L'édition de 1623 ajoutera un portrait et l'épitre à Pierre Brulard, à l'adresse de Antoine Estienne, ou Guillaume Loyson, les 2 feuillets blancs avant le titre inciteraient à penser que l'édition a été sortie hâtivement, dans l'attente de ces pièces.

Issu d'une famille calviniste, poète baroque et diplomate, la carrière de Du Perron ne prit son essor qu'après sa conversion, à l'âge de 21 ans (il deviendra par ailleurs un célèbre controversiste aux dépens des protestants). Il devint un proche d'Henri IV, et s'occupa activement de sa conversion, puis obtint l'absolution du roi à Rome, et la levée de l'interdit contre la France. Il retourna à Rome en tant que chargé des affaires de la France, et fit élire Alexandre de Médicis, parent de la reine, puis Paul V, dela famille Borghese. Enfin, il prit une part active aux Etats généraux de 1614. Les Ambassades sont un recueil de lettres rassemblées et précédées de sommaires et avertissements par son secrétaire César de Ligny, et retrace la vie politique de l'auteur. Ex-libris aux armes du Marquis de Rosambo, Louis Le Peletier (1747-1794).

        Le prototype ou tres-parfait et analogique exemplaire de l'art chimicq; a la phisique ou philosophie de la science naturelle. Contenant les causes principes & demonstrations scientifiq; de la certitude dudit art.

      - Paris, J. A. Joallin, 1620. Small 8vo (10.2 x 15.8 cm). Title page, [vii], 136, [xiv] pp. Contemporary mottled calf. Spine with gilt lines and floral vignettes. Red morocco label with gilt short-title. Marbled endpapers. Red edges.l Extremely rare (al)chemical treatise by the French nobleman René de la Chastre (1581-after 1663). According to Caillet, it contains the fundamental principles of the "Grand oeuvre", or the process of working with base metals to create the philosopher's stone. The work has a surprisingly modern sounding title. However, ".The words in the title might make the modern reader think that this work is indeed an experimental chemical treatise leading to an overall philosophy of natural science, but this is not the case. La Chastre's text is a traditional alchemical description of nature's perfection of gold and how the operator might duplicate its process in his laboratory" (Debus). A detailed biography, handwritten on old, blue paper, is tipped-in in front. Additionally on the front pastedown: two old sales catalogue records, as well as a loosely inserted newspaper clipping dated 1933, stating that the work is rare. The first catalogue clipping may describe this copy. Some shelf wear to spine and boards, otherwise a very good, complete copy. No auction records can be traced; we could find only one copy that was on the market in 1963 with Goldschmidt, Catalogue 127, Medicine and Science. Caillet II, 5899; Debus, "The French Paracelsians: The chemical challenge to medical and scientific tradition in early modern France", p. 47. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He fought with the Huguenots, was a professor at Geneva, and succeeded J. Lipsius at Leyden University. De Jonge, in his Study of the NT, concludes that Scaliger"s wrote his notes at different times, prior to 1593, without intending them to be published. He also stresses Scaliger"s importance for biblical criticism, noting that Scaliger alone in his time had a deep-rooted lack of trust of the current New Testament text.

        SS. Apostolorum et Evangelistarum Icones cum suis parergis.

      [Antwerp?]: Jean-Baptiste Barbé, 1620. No Binding. Very Good. [23.3 x 16 cm]. Single-sided engravings, (1) engraved title, (20) engravings. Unbound, fixed with small staples at top edge. Minor marginal handsoiling and spotting, small marginal holes to a few leaves, minor edge wear, light browning to a few leaves. Generally very good. Very rare first edition of a set of engravings by the Antwerp printmaker Jean-Baptiste Barbé (1578-1649) after the designs of Theodoor van Loon (c.1581-1649), a Flemish painter noted as an early stylistic follower of Caravaggio (1571-1610). The work presents bust-length portraits of the Holy Family, the Four Evangelists, and the Twelve Apostles, each set within a fancifully designed sculptural frame, with the wording of the collection's title - Icons with their Frames ('parergis')- emphasizing the importance of the relationship between painted image and its enclosing frame. While the strong shading of some plates recalls Caravaggio's tenebrism, facial types, which gaze sweetly into the distance, are perhaps more indebted to those of Guido Reni (1575-1642), who was working in Rome and at the height of his popularity around the time these engravings were produced. Each 'icon' is depicted with his attribute or an instrument of martyrdom (e.g., Peter's keys, Luke's ox, Andrew's cross), and the frames often echo these iconographic connections (e.g., herms flanking the portrait of James the Major are dressed as pilgrims).The emphasis on framing devices here is likely related to the rise in an interest in Christian archeology that began around 1600 and greatly influenced the way venerable images were treated in the remodeling of major churches and their altarpieces: For example, Theodoor van Loon certainly would have known his countryman and exact contemporary Peter Paul Rubens' (1577-1640) early Roman commission to enclose the ancient Santa Maria in Vallicella icon at Chiesa Nuova in an elaborate, pictorial altar frame (1606-08). This suite of engravings by Barbé should not, therefore, be seen only as a collection of images suitable for personal devotion, but also as a thoughtful visual treatise concerning the way artists were asked to confront and re-present early Christian art and iconography in the first half of the seventeenth century. Interestingly, these engravings are prominently dedicated on their title page to Wenceslas Cobergher (1560-1634), a painter, architect, engineer, theorist of institutional pawn shops (monti di pietà), numismatist, and collaborator of van Loon who was deeply interested in Roman and early Christian antiquities and their use by contemporary artists. * Hollstein, Dutch and Flemish, vol. 1, p. 100, nos. 45-64; M.
