Sassonia, Ercole
Venice: Alexander Polus, 1620. Sassonia, Ercole (1551-1607). De melancholia tractatus perfectissimus . . .Folio. 44, 30pp. Venice: Apud Alexandrum Polum, 1620. 324 x 224 mm. Old quarter vellum, modern boards, a bit soiled. Minor marginal worming and dampstaining, paper flaw in one leaf (not affecting text), but very good. First Edition. Sassonia, also known as Hercules of Saxony, was one of the great clinicians of the Italian Renaissance. He was the author of several works on diagnostics and various types of diseases, including melancholy. Taking Plato and Aristotle as his authorities, Sassonia included prophecy as a symptom of melancholy, but in the posthumously published De melancholia tractatus he took care to distinguish religious melancholy (which he believed to be a type of lovesickness) from true prophecy. "We thus see in his case the tensions between the Renaissance interest in a 'naturalist' interpretation of prophecy and religious ecstasy, and the Christian care to separate such phenomena from true divine inspiration" (Heyd, p. 57). De melancholia tractatus was issued with a later edition of Sassonia's treatise on venereal disease, De luis venereae perfectissimus tractatus (1st ed. 1597). Heyd, "Be Sober and Reasonable": The Critique of Enthusiasm in the Seventeenth and Early Eighteenth Centuries (1995), pp. 56-57. 950.

Francofurti, in Bibliopolio Henrici Laurentii, 1620. Folio (370 x 240mm). pp. (40), 1052, 30, with hand-coloured woodcut on title page and over 700 fine contemporary hand-coloured woodcuts, of which many very large or full-page, together with 41 contemporary coloured or plain pen drawings or paintings in the text. (Together with:) IDEM. Historia Animalium liber V. Qui est de Serpentium natura adiecta est ad Calcem, Scorpionis insecti historia Francofurti, Impensis Henrici Laurentii, 1621. Folio (370 x 240mm). pp. (16), 170, with woodcut on title and 31 woodcuts. Contemporary vellum. A unique copy with contemporary hand-coloured woodcuts and contemporary coloured and uncoloured drawings by Christophorus Schultetus (Stargard 1602 - Stettin 1649). Schultetus was a theologian and Lutheran priest at Stettin, author of several religious works. The drawings have sometimes been pasted in the margin of the text, occasionally drawn on the printed paper, and more frequently inserted as a slip. The format varies, some are small others almost as large as the printed book. The drawings are beautifully executed and have a lot of charm. The copy has numerous annotations and Schultetus makes frequent reference to Aldrovandi's work on fishes, also other works as Schoenfels 'Ichthyologica'. The drawings are in many cases after the woodcuts of Aldrovandi's work.The title-page, with faint old stamp and insignificant small paper repair on verso, has the following inscription 'Christophorus Schultetus D. suo me sibi comparavit.'Book V on snakes and insects has not been coloured.Book IV 'Fishbook' … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIANCANI, Giuseppe [Josephus BLANCANUS]
Sebastiano Bonomi for Geronimo Tamburini, Bologna, 1620. First edition of Biancani's rare Jesuit treatise on astronomy which "brought Clavius's Sphaera up to date, incorporating in it the discoveries of Galileo, Kepler, and others, and enthusiastically endorsed the advances being made in astronomy . [Biancani] defended Galileo's stand regarding mountains on the moon-which elicited a long letter from Galileo to another Jesuit astronomer, Christopher Grienberger, in which Galileo states that he is "infinitely obliged" to Biancani. Unfortunately this student of Clavius got too enthusiastic in Galileo's cause, and his remaining writings were never passed for publication by the censors of his Order" (Wallace 2003, pp. 108-9). "In 1620 there appeared an important treatise on astronomy which consistently and repeatedly used the word telescope. This was the Sphaera mundi of Josephus Blancanus, or Giuseppe Biancani . [He] was the first to employ exclusively and repeatedly the term 'telescope' in an extended treatise. More importantly, however, is the fact that his example and influence undoubtedly hastened general acceptance and use of the term" (McColley, pp. 364-5). "In present-day literature [Biancani] is sometimes depicted as an opponent of Galileo and the new science, but his exchanges in the unpublished sources with several Jesuit censors over his two main books show that quite the opposite was the case. These documents clearly reveal a split within the Jesuits at that time between the philosophers of orthodox Aristotelian persuasion and a group of mathematicians and astronome … [Click Below for Full Description]

Calepini, Ambrosii (Ambrogio Calepino)
Geneve [Geneva]: Ex Typographia Matthaei Berjon, 1620. Hardcover. Good +. Elephant folio size, approximately 1750 pp. Ambrogio Calepino (ca. 1440-1511), although the son of a Count, entered the Augustine order at a young age. One of the missions of the Augustinians was education, and to aid this mission, they established their own printing press at Nuremberg in 1479, very shortly after the invention of movable type. True to his calling, Ambrogio Calepino dedicated his life to his Latin Dictionary which was first published in 1502; numerous revisions followed, with the Aldine printers publishing several editions. Non-Latin words were gradually added, to form a work of words from seven additional languages (Hebrew, Greek, French, Italian, German, Hispanic, and English); eventually, the Basel edition of 1590 contained eleven languages. Many later dictionaries depended on Calepino's work for almost 300 years, up through the late 1700s. This volume appears to have been in the possession of at least two theological libraries; there is a small plate at the top of the front turn-in "BIB. COLL. PICTAV. S.J." (Society of Jesus, the Jesuits); on the title page and the page following are contemporaneous ms notes, with stamps in the shape of a cross, indicating the volume from was the library of an order of Carmelites, "Ex Carmelo Bayonensi". ___DESCRIPTION: Rebacked calf spine with red title label lettered in gilt, contemporaneous calf boards covered with brown paste paper, beneath the front paste-down at the hinge is an old sheet of what appears to be Gregorian chant (used i … [Click Below for Full Description]

GORLAEUS (VAN GOORLE, VAN GOOIRLE), David.
in bibliopolio Commeliniano sumptibus viduae Joannis Comelini, [Leyden], 1620. First edition, extremely rare, of one of the earliest modern works on atomism. "Gorlaeus is counted among the founders of modern atomism, which he proposed as an alternative to Aristotelian matter theory. Because of his notion of atomic compounds, he is also regarded as a contributor to the evolution of chemistry" (DSB). "When David Gorlaeus (1591-1612) passed away at 21 years of age, he left behind two highly innovative manuscripts. Once they were published [as the present work, and as Idea physicae (1610), his work had a remarkable impact on the evolution of seventeenth-century thought. However, as his identity was unknown, divergent interpretations of their meaning quickly sprang up. Seventeenth-century readers understood him as an anti-Aristotelian thinker and as a precursor of Descartes. Twentieth-century historians depicted him as an atomist, natural scientist and even as a chemist. And yet, when Gorlaeus died, he was a beginning student in theology. His thought must in fact be placed at the intersection between philosophy, the nascent natural sciences, and theology" (Lüthy). This is a very rare book. In his review of Lüthy’s book in 2012, Henri Krop wrote: "until now Gorlaeus’s life and ideas have remained basically unknown because both his elaborate Exercitationes philosophicae and his Idea physicae are extremely rare and copies were unavailable in Dutch public libraries. (However since 1986 the libraries of both Leiden and Leeuwarden have acquired copies of the former.)" We have been una … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUCHANAN, George. YULE, Alexander
Excusum apid Georgium Eld, Londini, 1620. [16], 364pp, [4]. With terminal blank and errata leaves. Twentieth-century blue half-morocco, gilt, buckram boards. T.E.G. Tightly bound, title neatly reinforced at gutter, else a fine, remarkably clean copy. The first edition of Stirling High School master Alexander Yule’s (d.1624) Latin prose paraphrase of George Buchanan’s poetic version of the Psalms of David, which he composed during his imprisonment in Lisbon. As well as providing an extremely handsomely laid out text for a younger audience, the historical significance of Yule’s edition is that he had been acquainted with Buchanan in his youth, and is said to have consulted with him on this ekphrasis. A second edition appeared in 1699. Outside of the UK, ESTC locates copies at only seven locations (Bancroft, Folger, Harvard, Huntington, Illinois, Indiana and Yale). ESTC S106068. STC 3989.

Vollgoldschnitt. Erste Ausgabe; sehr seltener Druck aus der Offizin von Jean Jannon in Sédan. - Salomon Certon (geb. 1552, gest. nach 1620) enstammte einer Hugenotten-Familie und stand als "Secrétaire du roi" bis 1609 in den Diensten König Heinrich IV. von Navarra. Danach zog er sich zurück und übertrug u.a. Homers "Ilias und Odyssee" ins Französische. Das vorliegende Bändchen enthält drei jeweils das gesamte Alphabet durchgehende Lippogramme. Jedes Gedicht enthält 23 Verse, die jeweils auf einen Buchstaben des Alphabets verzichten. Daneben sind noch im Stil antiker Dichtkunst verfasste "Sestinen", ferner Oden, Epigramme und Psalmen "en vers mesurez" enthalten. Im Vorwort schreibt Certon, dass er dem "deffunct monsieur Estienne", vermutlich Henri (II) Estienne (1528-1598), versprechen musste seine Lippogramme zu veröffentlichen und bei Janon drucken zu lassen. Janon, Hugenotte wie der Autor und die Estiennes, hatte des Druckerhandwerk bei Robert (III.) Estienne (1559-c.1629) erlernt und dann eine Offizin im protestantischen, von Frankreich unabhängigen Fürstentum Sédan eingerichtet. Jannon war nicht nur Drucker, sondern auch Typograph.

Matthaeus GREUTER
1620. "Si tratta del celeberrimo e raro panorama della cittadina di Frascati e delle ville circostanti, viste dall'alto, realizzata dal Greuter nel 1620. Di particolare interesse artistico, storico ed archeologico, la veduta è unica nel suo genere: nessun'altra veduta riuscirà a dare un'immagine altrettanto grandiosa e generale di questo territorio. Dai nomi dei proprietari delle ville, è possibile circoscrivere la di realizzazione della veduta, stabilendo come terminus post quem i primi mesi del 1618, e come terminus ante quem il febbraio 1619. Infatti l'attuale Villa Lancellotti, già dei Filippini, è indicata come ""Palazzo di Roberto Primo"", che ne prese possesso solo all'inizio del 1618 e morì nel febbraio del 1619. L'anno successivo, gli eredi vendettero la villa ai Capponi. La veduta è dedicata a monsignor Stefano Pignatelli, segretario del cardinale Scipione Borghese, nipote di papa Paolo V, allora proprietario di tre di queste ville. Lo stemma papale di Paolo V e quello cardinalizio di Scipione campeggiano negli angoli superiori. L'iscrizione dedicatoria, in un elegante carattere corsivo, è posta dentro un cartiglio decorativo, nel margine inferiore, in corrispondenza della villa Borghese. Al centro del cartiglio, lo stemma del Pignatelli. Più a destra, un secondo cartiglio, fiancheggiato da due putti, con i dati editoriali: ""Disegnato e dato in luce/da/Matteo Greuter Todesco/in Roma MDCXX/ con licenza de Superiori et/ Con Privileggio di NS. Papa Paulo V per anni X"" Ben un terzo della veduta è dedicato alla proprietà dei Borghese. A iniziare da sinistra: Villa Mo … [Click Below for Full Description]

PORFIRIO DI TIRO
Lugduni, sumpt Claudii Morillon, 1620. In-8° piccolo (17 x 12), pp. 572+464+(8); testo greco e latino a fronte, su 2 colonne. Leg. piena pergamena coeva (rimontata). Velature di umidità nel testo. (4192) Buona edizione (la prima era stata pubblicata a Firenze nel 1548 da un testo della Biblioteca Medicea), e versione latina a fronte di F. de Fougerolles, con l'aggiunta di alcuni scritti minori di interesse pitagorico. Il testo di Porfirio costituisce com'è noto la prima organica teorizzazione del vitto vegetariano, secondo i precetti pitagorici, per ragioni etiche, accompagnata da una più generale condanna dei sacrifici cruenti. L'autore fu celebre filosofo platonico, vissuto nel terzo secolo, discepolo di Origene e Plotino e maestro a sua volta di Giamblico; oltre agli scritti mistico-ascetici, sono note le sue biografie di Pitagora e Plotino, ed i suoi scritti filosofici anticristiani (che fecero considerare Porfirio filosofo "sceleratus", secondo la definizione datane da S. Gerolamo). Bitting, p. 377: "First book on vegetarianism". Vicaire, col. 704. Caillet, n. 8841. "Ce traité de Porphyre n'est pas moins qu'un livre d'0ccultisme très profond... On y trouve des notions très particulières, notamment sur le lien fluidique qui les rattache à leur dépouille corporelle..." (De Guaita, n. 1998).

(Rel. de l'époque). 8 ff. non chiffrés, 875 pp., (1) p., 10 ff. (table et privilège), 32 planchesÉDITION ORIGINALE de ce magnifique livre illustré baroque. "Les personnes pieuses recherchent ce livre pour le texte, et les curieux à cause des 32 gravures qui le décorent" disait Brunet V, 577. Les pratiques spirituelles enseignées par le Père Sucquet, un de ces merveilleux jésuites de la première génération, sont un incontestable passeport pour la vie éternelle, mais ce sont les 32 planches qui rendent le livre désirable.Ce sont de véritables tableaux "au raffinement élaboré, avec des coups d'oeil vers l'enfer et des échappées sur le Paradis" dixit Mario Praz. p. 195. Ces figures emblématiques, ici en PREMIER TIRAGE (1 frontispice et 32 planches hors-texte), sont un véritable bestiaire fantastique où rodent "quaerentes quem vorent" satyres, harpies, goules, lycanthropes, sauriens humanoïdes et tarasques. Le pêché est symbolisé par un personnage à pieds de bouc et tête de rapace huppé. Cette impressionnante illustration est de Boèce de Bolswert, qui avec son frère Schilte a souvent gravé pour Rubens. Hymans trouve que "parmi les graveurs de Rubens, Bolswert est celui dont l'entente de l'effet s'est le mieux manifesté et les éloges que tant d'écrivains attribuent légitimement à son frère, comme harmoniste et dessinateur peuvent bien lui revenir en partie" Funck.

The map was probably published following the unsuccessful sieges of the city on the Scheldt in 1620 and 1624 by Prince Maurits. Commenting on the inset map, in which the course of the Scheldt is displayed, Visscher puts particular emphasis on the military reinforcements around the city.
