"Ermordung von ca. 600 Protestanten des Veltlins vom 19. bis am 23.7.1620, die bis vor kurzem in der Historiografie Sacro macello genannt wurde. Die harten Urteile des Thuner Strafgerichts von 1618 gegen span. und österr.

Haupt der Verschwörung, deren Netz bis Madrid, Rom und Paris reichte, war Giacomo Robustelli aus Grosotto, der auch von persönl. Rachegefühlen beseelt war. An der Spitze von angeworbenen Banditen begann er den Mordbrennerzug in der Nacht vom 18. auf den 19. Juli in Tirano, eilte dann nach Teglio, Sondrio und weiter talabwärts, Männer, Frauen und Kinder ermordend. Einem Teil der Protestanten gelang die Flucht ins Ausland. Die Verschwörer erreichten ihre Ziele: Der Protestantismus südlich der Alpen war so gut wie ausgerottet und vorübergehend auch die Bündner Herrschaft über das Veltlin ausgeschaltet" (HLdS).

Fulgentius, Bishop of Ruspe; Claudius Gordianus Fulgentius Ruspensis
Basel: Henricpetri, 1621 The book is in good antiquarian condition. It is a small octavo measuring 4"x6" beautifully bound in smooth dark brown leather with a lovely patina. Five raised bands to the spine, some rubbing at extremities, small scar to front board, a scratch and another scar to back cover. One small wormhole at back cover that penetrates that last 20 pages or so of the book. Title page has a bit of humidity staining and there is a very light "bleed" from the brown edges of the book into the fore-edge of the pages throughout, though this is not unattractive. Last blank has some old notes. Otherwise very occasional foxing, binding sturdy, pages clean. Really, quite a nice copy. Pagination is [24] ff, 905 pp , [19] ff. OCLC 257548888. This is a very hard to find early 1600s edition of the late Roman monk Fulgentius of Ruspe, in the original Latin, dating back to 1621; his works in a very handsome full leather binding. It is quite scarce: OCLC (Worldcat) only lists 11 copies worldwide. We can find no copies for sale anywhere in the world and no auction records for this edition. Fabius Claudius Gordianus Fulgentius, originally of Carthage, was of Roman senatorial rank, and a friend and defender of Augustine. He was also a prominent Christian monk who wrote influential works against Arianism. He rose to become bishop of Ruspe and founded a number of monasteries. Reading Fulgentius is particularly important today in that he provides a contemporary insider's take on most of Augustine's ideas -- he is so steeped in the thoughts of his mentor he was sometimes cal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lima: Geronymo de Contreras, 1621. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (8) ff., 142 (ie 137) pp., (3) ff. Elaborate woodcut tailpiece on fol. **3v. With pastedowns and endleaves from a contemporary 4to liturgical service book printed in red and black. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum. Early ownership inscription of the second Jesuit college in the Americas, "El Collegio de S. P[edr]o y S. Pablo" on title page, and personal ownership inscription in an early hand of a Jesuit father, Padre Diego de Lacios [?] on the front cover. Vellum somewhat shrunken due to age, exposing margin of a few leaves to minor soiling, otherwise an extremely crisp copy, excellent. A fine and very genuine copy of the rare first edition of Pablo José de Arriaga's rich account of the Indians of Peru at the turn of the 17th century. Intended as a manual to help clerics identify native "superstitions", the work is filled with minute details describing Indian ceremonies, medicines, and beliefs. Thanks to the all too effective execution of Arriaga's duties, the Extirpacion de la Idolatria del Piru ironically remains the original go-to source for much ethnographic and anthropological information on the very cultures he was trying to eradicate. Recorded by an eye-witness on the eve of the final cultural obliteration of Incan and pre-Incan civilizations in the 17th century, Arriaga's account is one of the earliest ethnographic records of post-Conquest Peru and an essential source for the historical reconstruction of now-lost Peruvian cultures.

Par I. G. D. M. D. Finely engraved coat-of-arms of Roger de Bellegarde on recto of second leaf, one engraved folding plate (lightly dampstained), & several woodcuts in the text. 10 p.l., 176, [14] pp., one leaf of errata. Small 4to, 18th-cent. polished speckled calf (minor dampstaining & browning), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt in compartments incorporating a gilt stamp of a giraffe. Dijon: C. Guyot, 1621. First edition of this uncommon book describing one of the most sensational archeological discoveries of the 16th century. In this work, Guénébauld (d. ca. 1630), a physician in Dijon who had studied medicine in Padua and Rome, describes his discovery in 1598 in his vineyard at Poussat of a coffin with a Greek inscription eulogizing Chyndonax, a priest of Mithras. He interpreted it to be an archdruid. Guénébauld's discovery, near a Roman road, provoked a period of intense interest in druidism in Burgundy. Casaubon, Saumaise, and de Thou all were fascinated by this find. The coffin was later owned by Cardinal Richelieu. "This discovery was a very exciting affair that attracted considerable attention; it...consisted of a cylindrical stone coffer, about a foot in height, that contained a glass cinerary urn. On the base of the coffer was a Greek inscription mentioning Mithras and also a name interpreted by Guenebauld as Chyndonax, who, because he was described as a chief priest, was assumed to have been necessarily an important druid. Guenebauld himself published this find some years later in a delightful little book [the present work], complete with illustrat … [Click Below for Full Description]

With pastedowns and endleaves from a contemporary 4to liturgical service book printed in red and black. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum. Early ownership inscription of the second Jesuit college in the Americas, "El Collegio de S. P[edr]o y S. Pablo" on title page, and personal ownership inscription in an early hand of a Jesuit father, Padre Diego de Lacios [?] on the front cover. Vellum somewhat shrunken due to age, exposing margin of a few leaves to minor soiling, otherwise an extremely crisp copy, excellent. A fine and very genuine copy of the rare first edition of Pablo José de Arriaga's rich account of the Indians of Peru at the turn of the 17th century. Intended as a manual to help clerics identify native "superstitions", the work is filled with minute details describing Indian ceremonies, medicines, and beliefs. Thanks to the all too effective execution of Arriaga's duties, the Extirpacion de la Idolatria del Piru ironically remains the original go-to source for much ethnographic and anthropological information on the very cultures he was trying to eradicate. Recorded by an eye-witness on the eve of the final cultural obliteration of Incan and pre-Incan civilizations in the 17th century, Arriaga's account is one of the earliest ethnographic records of post-Conquest Peru and an essential source for the historical reconstruction of now-lost Peruvian cultures.

MERCURIO, Scipione Girolamo
appresso Gio. Battista Ciotti MDC.XXI. (1621) In 8° (19,5 x 14); tre libri in un unico volume; legatura novecentesca in mezza pergamena con tassello al dorso ; capolettera ornati; pp. (26) così segnate: frontisp. , cc. b-b4, c-c4 + pp. 362 (manca l'ultimo capitolo dedicato al "budello uscito di luogo alle creature"). Mancano le pp.113-114 col frontisp. del Libro Secondo e le .pp 241-242; un piccolo segno di tarlo attraversa il testo, che resta comprensibile, delle pp. 353-362. Malamente restaurato il frontisp. del Libro Primo e le ultime due pagine; carta brunita con tracce di umido; per il resto in discrete condizioni.Il testo delle prime 26 pagine non sembra lacunoso (nonostante manchino le carte a-a4), ma non siamo riusciti a trovare notizie su questa edizione per fare un confronto. Questo è anche il motivo per cui ci è ignoto il numero delle pagine mancanti dopo pag. 362.Il testo è illustrato da 30 belle xilografie (nelle altre edizioni 31; ne manca una?) molte delle quali a piena pagina illustranti l'anatomia femminile, le presentazioni fetali, gli strumenti ginecologici, il parto cesareo ecc.Sostanzialmente esemplare mal conservato di un'opera assai rara che rappresenta il primo trattato di ostetricia in lingua italiana la cui prima edizione, introvabile, vide la luce nel 1595.

ISRAEL, SILVESTRE.
Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 12 x 20 (alla lastra), in basso a sn. "Grav? par Israel Silvestre" (e il numero 2 poco sopra all'inizio della dicitura), in basso a destra "Avec privil. du R."; foglio in primo stato, con bella filigrana di gallo (o rapace) con ali spiegate. Silvestre Israel (Nancy, 3 agosto, 1621 - Parigi, 11 ottobre 1691), appartenente a una famiglia di artisti francesi, fu disegnatore e incisore. Dopo la morte dei genitori, nel 1631, fu mandato a Parigi con lo zio Israel Henriet, grazie al quale imparer? a disegnare e a incidere; e grazie allo zio conoscer? Callot e Della Bella. Tra il 1638 e il 1641 (si pensa nel 1640), Silvestre compir? un primo viaggio in Italia; un secondo viaggio sar? quello del 1643, un terzo nel 1653. Dopo la seconda visita in Italia vengono pubblicate le "Vues d'Italie (1643 circa). Fu artista fin troppo prolifico, numerosissime sono le sue opere, tant'? che ? quasi impossibile redigerne un inventario completo, avendo egli realizzato circa mille pezzi. Tra queste citiamo: "Vues de Paris et des environs" (1645), "Ports de mer" (1648), "Paysages" (1654), un secondo set di "Vues d'Italie", il "Balletto Reale Noces de T?tis" (1655), Vues de ch?teaux (1658) dedicate a Luigi XIV. Dal 1662; incise lastre per il re: "Course de t?tes et de bagues" (1662), "Plaisirs de l'isle enchant?e" (1664) e "Ch?teaux royaux". Il suo stile fu, all'inizio, piuttosto sciolto, ma a partire dalla pubblicazione delle prime "Vues d'Italie" divenne pi? raffinato e delicato, acquisendo accuratezza e precisione senza essere asciutto; a volte era simile … [Click Below for Full Description]

The remaining works were left as manuscripts to the city of Bologna and printed posthumously. As a multi-talented genius Aldrovandi studied mathematics, law and philosophy under the best of each field in this period, until he, around 1545, decided to study medicine at the University of Padua.As the consequence of a charge of heresy (probably due to him having studied in Padua, a main centre for the teachings of Averröes), he was obliged to go to Rome to clear himself of the accusation.

James I and VI (King of England, Scotland and Ireland 1566-1625)
Westminster, 1621. Westminster, March 18, 1621. Four pages in secretary hand, to Sir James Ley, Lord Chief Justice (Jan. 21, 1621 - Jan. 26, 1625), written by "Edmunds" (likely written as a draft or file copy) on behalf of King James I. Each page about 31 x 38 cm, folded twice with some folds cracking, and general staining, but text legible and complete. The text of the commission was read into the Journals of the House of Lords, but the whereabouts of the official copy are unknown. Housed in a custom, quarter-leather display portfolio.& & On March 14, 1621 the first complaint of corruption was raised against Sir Francis Bacon, then Lord Chancellor of England. The Parliament formally charged Bacon with corruption on March 19th, leading to his eventual conviction. Bacon responded to the charges with the following famous sentence: "And for the briberies and gifts wherewith I am charged, when the books of hearts shall be open, I hope I shall not be found to have the troubled fountain of a corrupt heart in a depraved habit of taking rewards to pervert justice; howsoever I may be frail, and partake of the abuses of the times." Sir James Ley oversaw the proceedings against Bacon and on May 3rd handed down the harsh sentence, which included: a £40,000 fine, a period of imprisonment in the Tower of London, banishment from holding state office, and exclusion from Parliament and James'; court. Bacon spent a brief time in the Tower of London, but much of the sentence was pardoned by King James.& & In a royal display of tact, the commission to Sir Ley makes no reference to the char … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jean De La Fontaine
Hardcover Very Good. Hardcover Very Good Book. d la f. An early copy of La Fontaine's fables, translated into English. Featuring a portrait frontispiece and numerous further illustrations by Gustave Dore. Translation by Walter Thornbury. Jean de La Fontaine (IPA: [ tn]; July 8, 1621, Chteau-Thierry April 13, 1695, Paris) was the most famous French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century. He is known above all for his Fables, which provided a model for subsequent fabulists across Europe and numerous alternative versions in France, and in French regional languages. La Fontaine had many predecessors in the fable, especially in the beast fable. The poet took inspiration from Aesop, Horace, Boccaccio and Ariosto and Tasso, Machiavelli's comedies, and Eastern stories that in his epoch were transmitted through translations from the Persian. (Louis Auguste) Gustave Dore (18321883). A child prodigy, Dor received little formal artistic training, but his talents as a draughtsman were already apparent during his school years. His first lithographic album was published by Aubert in Paris in 1847. After three years working under contract as a caricaturist for the editor Charles Philipon (18001862), he added book illustration to his repertory. Dore's production as an illustrator remains unmatched for scope or ambition. Among his major works are editions of Rabelais (2nd expanded edn, 1873), Balzac (Contes drolatiques, 1855), Dante (Divine Comedy, 1861, 1868), Charles Perrault (Fables, 1862), Cervantes (Don Quixote, 1863), Milton (Paradise Lo … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERNÁNDEZ DE NAVARRETE, Pedro.
Barcelona, Por Sebastian de Cormellas, 1621. 4°, early limp vellum (stained, loosening). Text within a double-rule border. A few faint stains. In fine condition. Inscription in ink on title-page by Dr. Schonleben for the Graf von Auersperg, dated 1656. Bookplate of the Auersperg collection. (2), 80 ll., with numerous errors in foliation. *** FIRST EDITION, with references to the Americas and a discussion of the impact of overseas possessions on domestic policy. The author comments at length on a consulta of the Real Consejo de Castilla that had been written by Diego del Coral y Arellano. The consulta dealt with the marked decline in the population of Castile, and made brief recommendations on how to change that trend. Fernández de Navarrete elaborates on these measures, which included cutting taxes, decreasing the number of people at Court who were exempt from taxation, reducing the Court's expenditures, allowing fewer religious houses to be established, and setting a minimum age for entering religious orders. These suggestions were further developed in the author's Conservacion de monarquias, Madrid, 1626. Fernández de Navarrete was a canon of Santiago de Compostela and royal chaplain and secretary; he also published translations of Seneca. According to the letter from Miguel de Prats to Fernández de Navarrete that serves as a preface to this volume, the Discursos were published without the author's knowledge. Prats, a protégé of Fernández de Navarrete's brother Alfonso (who died a martyr in Japan), found a manuscript of the work in the luggage of a man who had died in Bar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ludovici Regis, Basil 1621 - Folio (8" x 12-1/2") bound in library buckram; irregularly paginated: [10], 502, [58] pages. Illustrated with 273 woodcuts, many full and half page, some signed with the monogram "RMD," and generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl.1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Previously published in 1556 and 1561, this edition seems scarcer than either of the previous. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 79: "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times." Herbert Hoover, who first translated this book into English, described this title in his autobiography as "the first important attempt to assemble systematically in print the world-knowledge on mining, metallurgy, and industrial chemistry. It was the great textbook of those industries for two centuries and had dominated thought and practice all that time. In many mining regions and camps, including the Spanish South America, it was chained to the church altar and translated by the priest to the miners between religious services." The book combines a profound technical and financial knowledge of mining with an underlying interest in the health and daily routine of mine workers. The woodcut impressions are strong and dark. As customary with this title, there is browning throughout, occasionally heavy. Small piece of title page repaired with no loss of text or illustration; ink names of David Stuart dated 1771 and Joseph Robertson dated 1830 on title page.

The book has been called "one of the most curious and interesting pictorial volumes of Americana, and of great rarity." Part history, part fantasy, this odd work chronicles the evangelisation of America by the Catalonian Benedictine Bernardo Buil (or Boyl), Abbot of Monserrat, who with twelve of his followers travelled with Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to Hispaniola (Haiti) in 1493. Considered the first Patriarch of the region, Buil served as Viscount General of the West Indies. In this capacity he often quarreled vehemently with Columbus, and upon returning to Spain lodged a formal complaint with King Ferdinand against the explorer's conduct. Ferdinand ruled in Columbus's favor, and Buil retired to the Abbey of Cuxa. The work was written pseudonymously by Caspar Plautius, O.S.B. of Munich, … [Click Below for Full Description]
