Adamus, Melchior
Frankfurt: Nikolaus Hoffmann for Jonas Rosa; Johann Georg Geyder for the widow of Jonas Rosa, 1618; 1620. First editions. 1 vols. 8vo. Biographical Dictionary of Reformation Minds. Melchior Adams (c. 1575-1622) was one of the most important biographers of the savants (mostly German, Swiss, and Dutch) of the 16th century, and his meticulously researched biographies are an essential source of our knowledge of the lives of the thinkers of the Reformation -- including theologians, philosophers, jurists, and physicians. The first title, biographies of non-Germanic theologians, with accounts of Calvin, Knox, Cranmer, Whitaker, Beza, et. al.; while the second title, a biographical dictionary of German medical scientists, includes Vesalius, Munster, Gesner, et al. STC/German 17th-century A-147; STC/German 17th-century A-142; Wellcome Library 33. Contemporary vellum (lower portion of binding renewed), with ms. titles on spine. With a cardinal's coat of arms dated 1724 stamped in red on first title. Text browned, but a good solid copy.

Bonarelli, Prospero.
1620. Florence: Pietro Cecconcelli, 1620. Small 4to, [xiv], 162, [ii] pp. With an etched title-page and five double-page etched plates by Jacques Callot. Strictly contemporary limp vellum, backstrip titled in manuscript, some wear and soiling to binding and an inoffensive waterstain in the lower margin from a2-D2, but an entirely unsophisticated copy with superb strikes of the plates. § First edition of this important tragedy, produced in 1619 and published many times in the 17th century. The illustrations are regarded as some of Callot's finest work. "French etcher, engraver, and draughtsman. He was one of the most accomplished printmakers in the Western tradition and one of the major exponents of the Mannerist style in the early 17th century. His often fantastic compositions combine grotesque and elegant elements in a compelling and personal manner." (Grove, Dictionary of Art). Callot based his illustrations on the work of his colleague Parigi, architect and chief designer of courtly festivities under the Grand Duke Cosimo Medici II, who died two years later causing Callot to return to his native Nancy. Gamba 1810. Cicognara 1086. Lieure 363-368. The book is quite scarce, especially in unsophisticated condition and with such fine impressions of the plates. The Schaeffer copy, for example (1994, lot 38), had the plates on stubs, was cut down slightly, and rebound in recent red morocco. Of the six copies at auction since 1975, only one was in contemporary vellum (1978).

[Saumaise, Claude.]
Parisiis: [Hieronymus Drouart], 1620. 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.

MERCATOR, Gerard
Amsterdam: Jocus Hondius. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 12.25" x 15.75". Beautiful impression of Ukraine showing the area north of the Black Sea including Moscow, circa 1620. Nicely detailed geographic features. Latin text on verso. Overall toning. Full original margins. Small tear to bottom left edge. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

de Victoria, Baltasar
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]

Rare. Full brown speckled calf contemporary. Back tooled raised. Lack in head cover. A pale yellow wetness footer on the entire volume. 3 wormholes tail. Copy to the pleasing appearance. The Jesuit Pierre Garasse (1585-1630) is well known for his eccentricities and his diatribes of great violence, up to rudeness and obscenity; it takes in this book his Protestant counterpart (also well known for the same qualities) and his works, notably on the vocation of pastors. Accusing him of being fed Rabelais, Garasse takes in this book look like a Protestant denouncing the misdeeds of a brother. The style is very happy satirical, allegorical poems combining burlesque and the more direct attacks. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

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.

MESSAGER, J. (ca. 1580 - Paris - 1649) & PICQUET, J. (Troyes ca. 1600 - ca. 1650 Paris).
1620. [Paris, 1620s]. 245 x 175 mm. Half calf, gilt spine with floral ornaments and red gilt lettered label, marbled boards. An extremely rare suite of very beautiful bouquets in ornamental vases with grotesques, based on an equally rare group of larger prints by Jean Theodor de Bry. The vases are depicted surrounded by insects and other small animals, on a table-top. The plates are numbered lower left from 1 to 6 and the first engraving is signed on the table top in front to the left: 'I. Messager, excudit' and to the right 'I. Pictet Incidit'. The other plates are signed to the left 'I Messager. ex.' (or with minor variations). Each plate has a ribbon below the vase with a Latin inscription. The inscriptions, on the theme of transience, comprise a emblematic text in hexameters based on the six Latin declensions of the word 'Flos', or flower, and involve punning and word play. They translate as follows: 1. The Flower as a mirror of life: no sooner does it flower than it withers with a breath. 6. The quickly changing image of the Flower warns us of the swift passage of time. 3. The tender youth is like a Flower with advancing years. 4. Displaying the Flower [of youth] at the same time he bears the fruit [of maturity]. 2. Oh Flower, thus flowering in the youthful summer. 5. Follow the Flower's lead to a virtuous life. The change in order accords with the original series after which this set has been copied, with the images in reverse. The originals were a series of six larger prints by Jan Theodor de Bry (Liege 1561 - 1623 Frankfurt), produced in Frankfurt-am-Main about 1604 … [Click Below for Full Description]

The other plates are signed to the left 'I Messager. ex.' (or with minor variations). Each plate has a ribbon below the vase with a Latin inscription. The inscriptions, on the theme of transience, comprise a emblematic text in hexameters based on the six Latin declensions of the word 'Flos', or flower, and involve punning and word play. They translate as follows: 1. The Flower as a mirror of life: no sooner does it flower than it withers with a breath. 6. The quickly changing image of the Flower warns us of the swift passage of time. 3. The tender youth is like a Flower with advancing years. 4. Displaying the Flower [of youth] at the same time he bears the fruit [of maturity]. 2. Oh Flower, thus flowering in the youthful summer. 5. Follow the Flower's lead to a virtuous life. The change in order accords with the original series after which this set has been copied, with the images in reverse. The originals were a series of six larger prints by Jan Theodor de Bry (Liege 1561 - 1623 Frankfurt), produced in Frankfurt-am-Main about 1604 and t … [Click Below for Full Description]
