        Memorial en favor dels Mercaders Forasters sobre la Ordenacio feta per la Ciutat de Barcelona al Primer de Juny 1620 y en Resposta del Memorial fet per un magnifich Advocat de la Ciutat. Ab lo qual se suplica al Excellentissim señor Duch de Alcala Loctinent en Cathalunya mane revocar dita Ordinacio.

      En Barcelona, en casa de Llorens Déu, 1620. - in-4. (1f.blanc). 54ff. Demi-vélin, titre imprimé au dos (reliure postérieure). Edition Originale de ce très rare mémoire économique en catalan qui s'opposait aux fortes mesures protectionnistes émanant du Consell de Cent, l'administration municipale de la ville de Barcelone. L'ordonnance incriminée prévoyait une taxe extraordinaire sur les marchandises importées ou exportées de Barcelone par des commerçants d'origine étrangère ("mercaders forasters", les "marchands du dehors"), au seul motif de leur nationalité. Francesc Soler était jurisconsulte et doyen de l'Université de Perpignan. Son réquisitoire réclamant la révocation de cette ordonnance, dans lequel il répond point par point aux raisons avancées pour justifier la taxe, constitue un florilège particulièrement précoce d'arguments libre-échangistes. Après avoir rappelé l'origine étrangère d'un grand nombre de familles catalanes parmi les plus notables, l'auteur invitait notamment à observer la prospérité de grandes capitales commerciales comme Livourne, Séville, Lisbonne, Marseille, Naples, ou Palerme, ou de pays comme la Perse, la Turquie ou la Chine, où le commerce étranger était encouragé. "Que Ciutat del mon hi ha que noy haja forasters? Ninguna, y en Cathalunya may ni han faltats, sino en les terres incognites, y no descubertas. Lo Turch, lo Persa, y lo Chino volen, aman, y abrassan los mercaders forasters". La polémique entre défenseurs et partisans de cette fameuse ordonnance donna lieu à plusieurs publications, toutes favorables au protectionnisme à l'exception de celle-ci. Tache brune dans la marge inférieure de plusieurs feuillets. Bon exemplaire de cet ouvrage très rare dont Worldcat ne répertorie qu'un seul exemplaire (Université de Barcelone) et qui est resté absent du Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico. Palau, 317706. Sur l'économie catalane de cette époque et la controverse sur l'ordonnance du 1er juin 1620, voir la thèse doctorale de l'actuel vice-président de la Généralité de Catalogne Oriol Junqueras: "Economia i pensament econòmic a la Catalunya de l'Alta Edat Moderna (1520-1630)" (1999).

        A defensative against the poyson of supposed prophecies

      John Charlewood, W.Jaggard, London 1620 - A LEARNED ATTACK ON JUDICIAL ASTROLOGY Folio in 4's. ff.(viii) 151 (i). Roman and italic letter. T-p slightly shaved at f-e, title within white interlaced strapwork border on a black crible background,(Mckerrow and Ferguson 249). Decorative headpieces, historiated and floreated initials throughout in two sizes. Slight water staining to first two gatherings. Inner ll. slightly spotted. An interesting and attractive copy in contemp. speckled calf, covers with blind ruled outer borders. Spine in seven compartments, remains of paper label. Upper joint cracked at head. Reputedly the most learned man of his time and a skilled architect and generous benefactor, Northampton (1540-1614), took an active part in political business at court, often out of favour; he was twice arrested for heresy and treasonable correspondence with the Scottish Queen. After his release he retired to St. Albans where he spent a year writing "A defensative.". This work is a learned attack on judicial astrology, dedicated to Walsingham and perhaps suggested by the astrological exploits of Richard Harvey (writer of: "An astrological discourse upon the the great and notable conjunction of two superior planets.1583"). Soon after its publication the book was accused of "seeming heresies and treason" and Howard was sent to the Fleet for several months. This edition printed six years after his death is described on the title page as newly revised and is divided into thirty six chapters. Northampton dispels the authority of dreams, oracles, revelations, invocations of spirits "or any other kind of pretended knowledge whatsoever - which have been causes of great disorder in the common wealth, especially among the simple and unlearned people". He has little time for astrology, the zodiac, planetary powers or fortune telling, one wonders what he would make of our modern day infatuation with all things new-age. Northampton was known as a wit and counted amongst his friends, Bacon, who recorded some of his remarks in his "Apophegms", and George Chapman who inscribed a sonnet to him which was printed before his translation of Homer in 1614.

      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.

      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). Old owner's name on colophon "Manuel de la Pena" with a manuscript salutation at the end of the preface in a fine hand which is nearly the same as the printed one at the end of the dedication (Could this be authorial?). Rembrandt owned a copy of the second edition and borrowed from it Amico's rendering of the Temple of Jerusalem as a domed octagonal building.

        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.
