      [London], 1622. Small quarto. Modern half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Lightly age-toned and stained, with light edge wear. Very good. This newsletter is probably the earliest surviving English bulletin of current information concerning events in the Far East and the East Indies. This newssheet reports the capture of the islands of Lantore (Great Banda) and Polaroone (Pulau Run) in the Banda Islands from the British by the Dutch East India Company. The islands had been discovered and annexed to Portugal in 1512, and were valued for their spices, especially nutmeg. Early in the 17th century the Dutch expelled the Portuguese. The British subsequently gained control of the islands from the Dutch for a brief period. Despite treaties, the Dutch attacked and expelled the British in 1621, as detailed here. According to ESTC, a SECOND COURANTE of news from the East Indies was printed in London on February 18. Lach notes that the Dutch and English produced several tracts during this period, each giving their respective accounts of hostilities in the East Indies and Banda in particular. The present COURANTE is among the rarest such works. ESTC locates a total of only five copies of this February 8 newsletter, at the British Library, Cambridge, Oxford, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and the University of Minnesota, and this particular title is not mentioned by Lach. Rare.

First edition in English, rare. 'Leonard Digges's father was Thomas Digges, the mathematician - the first English author publicly to declare his support for Copernicus. 'After Thomas Digges's death [in 1595] his widow married Thomas Russell of Alderminster, whom in 1616 William Shakespeare named as an overseer of his will. The remarriage of his mother had literary repercussions for Leonard Digges. He went to University College, Oxford, in 1603, aged fifteen, and graduated BA on 31 October 1606. Having left Oxford, he returned briefly to London before embarking on a period of study in foreign universities. In 1611 it seems that he went to Spain with his friend James Mabbe, a fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, who was secretary to the English ambassador, Sir John Digby. The evidence for their companionship in Spain is provided by a copy of Lope de Vega's Rimas (1613), now in the library of Balliol College, Oxford, which Mabbe sent to another Oxford friend, Will Baker. In a note to Baker on the flyleaf Digges compared Lope's sonnets to those of Shakespeare, which were clearly regarded, at least in Digges's circle, as the finest of their kind. In consideration of the accomplishments Digges acquired in classical and modern languages he was created MA at Oxford on 20 November 1626, and allowed to reside at University College, where he died on 7 April 1635 and was buried in the chapel' (ODNB).

      London, 1622. Small quarto. Brown morocco, spine gilt, t.e.g., gilt inner dentelles, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Top edge trimmed close, affecting running title on a few pages. Lacks final blank. Minor soiling. Else very good. The first edition of this early and foundational work on one of the earliest colonies in the New World; it was also appended to later editions of Whitbourne's DISCOURSE AND DISCOVERY OF NEW-FOUND-LAND, which was first issued in 1620. Whitbourne was one of the founding fathers of Newfoundland, and this was his second discourse written to promote the young colony. This work was issued both with and without a twenty-page section of letters by Edward Wynne, describing Lord Baltimore's colony at Maryland (the letters are not present in this copy). Whitbourne came to Newfoundland as part of the colonization effort in 1615, returning to England in 1617 to bring out a group of Welsh colonists. His stated purpose was to "crowne that countrey of New-found-land with due praises, that she justly called a Sister-land to this great Island of Britannia, Ireland, Virginia, New-England, and Nova Scotia." Whitbourne praises the island's "abundant heapes of nourishments & necessaries" and asks, "What seas so abounding in fish, what shores so replenished with fresh and sweet waters? The wants of other Kingdomes are not felt heere." He follows with a detailed description of the island's settlements, trade, and resources. This tract gives a glowing account of the possibilities of Newfoundland. Not in TPL, and the ESTC notes only nine locations. Rare.

        Heliodorus His Aethiopian history.

      Felix Kyngston for William Barrett, London 1622 - "FIRST EUROPEAN NOVEL IN ENGLISH 4to. pp. (iv) 336, 317-328. Roman letter, woodcut head and tail pieces and initials. Contemporary press mark and initials RLS to upper corner of title page, contemporary manuscript ex libris of Roger L'Estrange to fly, partially struck through. Light age-yellowing, occasional rust spots, a good, clean copy in contemporary limp vellum, lacking ties, two early paper library labels to spine. 19th century armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield to front pastedown, Shirburn Castle blind stamp to first few leaves. First translation into English of the oldest and best of all extant Greek novels, generally recognized as the first European novel. It was brought to light in modern times in a manuscript from the library of Matthias Corvinus, found at the sack of Buda (Ofen) in 1526, and printed at Basel in 1534. The story, developed in ten books, starts and ends in Ethiopia which gives the novel its title. In Charicleia, the daughter of the queen of Ethiopia, born white due to the effect of the sight of a marble statue upon the queen during her pregnancy, is raised by priests in Delphi, eventually becoming a priestess of Apollo herself. There she meets and falls in love with a noble Thessalian, Theagenes. The young lovers, of course, endure many trials and have many adventures. They flee Delphi with the help of Calasiris, an Egyptian priest, and are captured and separated by pirates. Once again reunited in Memphis, they head South, arriving in Meroe, the capital of Ethiopia, as prisoners of the Ethiopian army, then at war with Persia. At the last moment, just before Charicleia is about to be sacrificed to the gods, she is recognized as the true princess of Ethiopia and the two lovers are happily married. The rapid succession of events, the variety of the characters, the fascinating descriptions of natural scenery in Ethiopia, Egypt and Greece, the simplicity and elegance of the style, all give the 'Aethiopica' great charm. Heliodorus was an exceptional master of plot development and narrative style. Homer and Euripides were his favourite authors and Heliodorus was, in turn, admired by Byzantine critics and men of the Renaissance. Tasso modelled his heroine Clorinda, in his 'Gerusalemme Liberata', on Charicleia; Racine considered a drama on the same subject; and it formed the model of the 'Persiles y Sigismunda' of Cervantes. Heliodorus, famous Greek writer of romances, was born at Emesa in Syria. He lived towards the end of the fifth century of the Christian era, converted to Christianity and became Bishop of Tricca in Thessaly. The 'Aethiopica' was written in his early years, probably before his conversion. The English version is the work of Thomas Underdown who published several 16th century translations of the Classics. It is an important example of Elizabethan prose, remarkable for its prose and poetic vigour, which went on to inspire the new romantics such as Philip Sidney. This edition is the first to be modernised by William Barret. In the preface he claims his painstaking revision to have cleared the text from 'the barbarisms of antiquity' (DNB). Sir Roger L'Estrange (1616-1704), staunch royalist and Tory, accompanied Charles I and his army to Scotland in 1639, was captured at the outbreak of civil war and spent three years imprisoned in Newgate in daily anticipation of execution. On release he travelled widely delivering speeches and composing declarations to be made on the King's behalf, before fleeing to Holland. Returning to England some four years later, he published numerous anonymous broadsides attacking the army, becoming even more vocal after the dissolution of Parliament in 1659. On the Restoration he threw himself into the controversy surrounding the religious settlement, diversifying into the censorship and publication of newspapers and copious political pamphlets. Something of a womaniser, and so unpopular he was actually burnt in effigy by a London mob, L'Estrange was also a v [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Description of Leicestershire, Containing Matters of Antiquitye, Historye, Armorye, and Genealogy

      Cantabrigiae [Cambridge] : John White, 1622 A fair to good copy of the scarce 1st edition with map, in contemporary full leather binding. The binding has wear to spine joints, the top and bottom of the spine and edges, but is of good quality leather and would repair well. Page edges red. Internally there is an armorial bookplate of the Kinnaird family to the front pastedown and a signature of James West, clearly an early owner, on the fep.James has made some notes about the elections to Parliament for the County of Leicester in 1775. The fep has a tear at the top. With decorative title page (small repair to side margin); dedication 2pp; To the Reader 6pp; double page map; text pp 1-332; Catalogue 6pp; finis; table added in ms 3pp. The shields have been carefully coloured in (including one on the title page)- possibly by or for an early owner as there has been occasional offsetting from the colouring over time. There is also some scholarly annotation and an additional coat of arms has been added in the margin of p134. The pagination is awry at a couple of points and has been corrected by hand from p196-210 and from p219 -332. The book was clearly well-used as a reference work. There is some light staining affecting the top third of pages - noticeable at the beginning but not particularly later in the book. Please enquire if you would like to see additional images.

        Tabula Itineraria ex Illustri Peutingerorum Bibliotheca Quæ Augustæ Vindelicorum Beneficio Marci Velseri Septem-viri Augustani in Lucem edita (Peutinger Table)

      Amsterdam: Nicolas Bergier. unbound. very good. Map in 8 joined sheets. Concertina folds. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 7 3/8 x 159". This stunning map is the famous "Peutinger Table" or a Roman road map of the world dating to circa 1622. It maps the imperial roads and posts within the Roman Empire and extends from Europe to the Near East, North Africa, Mesopotamia, Persia, India to finally end at 'Toprobana' or modern day Sri Lanka. The original Peutinger Table was considered the oldest road map of the world and shows main roads covering a distance of about 70000 Roman miles. It also notes spas, rivers, forests, staging posts with distances between stages marked. The important cities of Rome, Constantinople and Antioch are depicted with illustrations of emperors. The original map, probably dating to 4th or 5th century, was drawn on parchment and was found by Konrad Celtes around the 13th century in the library of Augustus. This parchment itself is believed to be based upon a map prepared during the reign of Emperor Augustus created for the use of couriers of emperors. From Konrad Celtes, the parchment came into the possession of Konrad Peutinger, from whom it derives its popular name. Mark Welser, a relative of Peutinger was the first to publish a copy in 1591. Later Ortelius included it in his historical atlas and the map gained popularity. This version by Bergier, is almost identical to the Ortelius edition. The original manuscript parchment is held at the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek in Hofburg, Vienna. The map distorts the proportions of the landmasess so that distances east-west are on a scale larger than the north-south distances. This can be evident when you look at the location of Rome which looks closer to Carthage than Naples is to Pompeii. Sequence of 8 segments joined together. Dark impression. Some toning at a few fold lines. Some damage and toning with minor chipping on segment V. Some stains over title. Overall a good example of this important map. Nicolas Bergier (1567-1623) was a lawyer and Jesuit historian who taught at the University in Reims. His interest in Roman roads got him appointed as a royal historian and was later commanded by Louis XIII to study the Roman roads. In 1622, Bergier published his work about the origin, progress and extent of military roads paved until the end of the Roman Empire in his book "Histoire des Grands Chemins de l'Empire Romain" The book was later translated into English in 1712. The French edition was published in 1728 and 1736. Although all editions are hard to come by, this particular map is most likely from the 1622 first edition.

        De expugnatione Civitatis Rigensis Livoniae metropolis, Quam Serenissimus Svecorum Gottorum & Vandalorum Rex, Gustavus Adolphus ... 1621 infestis armis ipse oppugnatum venit. Loco Relationis verissima epistolae IIII.

      Riga: Nicolaus Mollijn 1622,. 1. und einzige Ausgabe. Kl.-4°. 124 ungez. S., 1 Faltkupferstich (Ansicht), 1 gef. Tabelle (Erklärungen). Marmor. Broschur des 18. Jh. in mod marmor. Buchschatulle m. rotem Lederrücken u. Rückentitel (gelegentlich leicht gebräunt, sonst gut erhalten). Sehr selten.. * Winkelmann 7409 und 7263 (Tafel); Buchholtz: Druckkunst in Riga 146 und S. 56; Schröder: Riga im Wandel der Zeiten Nr. 50 u. Abb. S. 69. Im Zuge der schwedischen Großmachtpolitik hatte König Gustav II. Adolf (reg. 1611-1632) zunächst in innerrussische Wirren eingegriffen und 1617 Ingermanland sowie Ostkarelien erworben, so daß Russland von der Ostsee abgeschnitten war. Im Kampf gegen Polen eroberte er 1621 das damals zu Polen gehörende Riga und Livland, anschließend auch große Teile Ostpreussens, dessen Hafenzölle zu seiner wichtigstren auswärtigen Einnahmequelle wurden. Vorliegende Schrift beschreibt die Belagerung und Einnahme Rigas im Sommer 1621; sie ist zugleich eine Verteidigung gegen die Anschuldigungen des polnischen Feldherrn Christoph Radziwill, mit Wiedergabe mehrerer Dokumente im Wortlaut. Der beigefügte große, mehrfach gefaltete Kupferstich (37 x 28 cm) zeigt die Stadt Riga aus der Vogelschau mit der Umgebung beiderseits des Dünastromes; auf dem Lande sind Heerlager, Artillerie-und Kavallerieeinheiten, aber auch friedvolle Viehweiden, auf der Düna die starke schwedische Belagerungsflotte dargestellt. Nikolaus Mollijn (Mollyn, Molinus), der erste Buchdrucker in Riga, hatte im Auftrag des Rigischen Stadtrates diesen Kupferstich angefertigt, der die Belagerungsereignisse im Bild festhält; dieses Blatt wurde der 1622 erschienenen Belagerungschronik beigegeben. Dieser vor Ort gezeichnete Kupferstich wurde typbildend, er wurde noch 100 Jahre lang von anderen Stechern kopiert (Perelle/Pufendorf, Nürnberg 1696; Faber, Frankfurt/M. 1705; Anonymus 1720; Stridbeck, Augsburg 1721). Literatur zum Kupferstich: Jäger, Eckhard: Veduten der Stadt Riga und ihre Verbreitung durch europäische Offizinen (1550-1830). Versuch einer Typologie. In: Beiträge zur Geschichte der Kunst im Ostseeraum, hrsg. v. Erich Böckler. Bad Homburg 1984, S. 203-221 (Homburger Gespräch.6.). Extensive account of the siege and capture of the city of Riga by the Swedish both Army and Navy, and the corresponding political events with enclosure of various documents. The large copperplate shows the city of Riga from bird's-eye view, with the estuary of the Düna river and the naval blockade. Some browning throughout, hardly soiled, closely trimmed. Modern wrappers with old cover material of coloured marbled paper in a modern half-calf case. In all in good condition. Very rare.

      Remlingen, (typis et impensis authoris), 1622(-24).. Folio. 14 (statt 15, fehlt Titel) Bl., 1 teilkoloriertes Bildnis Löhneysens in Kupferstich, 677 (recte 661) S., 1 Bl. Mit 13 z.T. ankolorierten Bildnissen deutscher Könige (von Tuiscon bis Carolus Magnus; ca. 15,5 : 20 cm Plattengröße) in Holzschnitt u. 29 ein bis zwei Drittel der Seite einnehmenden Illustrationen zum Berg- und Hüttenwesen in Holzschnitt (signiert: MT für Moses Thym, gelegentl. auch mit der Cranach-Schlange, u. datiert Leipzig 1617). Pergament d. Zt. mit durchgezogenen Bünden und Schließbandresten.. Erste Ausgabe des dritten, in Löhneysens Privat-Offizin auf Gut Remlingen hergestellten Privat- und Luxusdruckes, der einen "aufwendig ausgestatteten Fürstenspiegel" (Brüggemann/Brunken) sowie eine umfassende "Enzyklopädie der Staats- und Cameralwissenschaften" (Prandtl) darstellt. Von großer Seltenheit.- Georg Engelhard von Löhneyß (auch Löhneysen) stand in braunschweigischen Diensten, zunächst als Fürstlicher Stallmeister, seit 1589 als Berghauptmann und obersten Leiter der zum Herzogtum Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel gehörenden Harzer Bergstädte Zellerfeld, Wildermann, Grund und Lauenthal und deren Berg- und Hüttenwerke. Auf seinem Gut Remlingen (nahe Zellerfeld und Wolfenbüttel) hat sich Löhneyß um 1596 "mit großen Unkosten eine eigene Typografia und Truckerey" einrichten lassen, in der 1609 die "Cavalleria" und 1617 der "Bericht vom Bergwerck" erschienen sind. Als dritten seiner luxuriösen Privatdrucke hat er in seiner Offizin noch die "Aulico Politica" vorbereitet, den Abschluß des Druckes aber nicht mehr erlebt, denn er verstarb bereits Ende 1622. Erst seine Söhne Heinrich Julius und Wolf Ernst konnten das Unternehmen 1624 schließlich abschließen (s. Vorrede). Doch bereits 1625, noch vor vollständiger Auslieferung des Werkes, fielen "Tilly und Wallenstein in die braunschweigischen Lande ein und plünderten und verbrannten alle Orte, die sie erreichten, darunter auch die Bergstadt Zellerfeld. Nach der Schlacht von Lutter am Barenberg (1626) verwüsteten wiederum die Dänen alles, was im Bereich der Festung Wolfenbüttel lag, Ende 1627 wurde Wolfenbüttel unter Pappenheim erobert - kein Wunder, wenn in diesen schrecklichen Wirren auch Löhneiss' sämtliche Besitzungen samt seiner Druckerei zerstört wurden mit allen Vorräten der dort gedruckten Werke" (Prandtl). So erklärt sich die große Seltenheit der schönen Schrift. Löhneysens Drucke heben sich durch "die schönen Lettern und besonders die Initialen in verschiedenen Größen sowie das übersichtliche Schriftbild, vor allem aber die künstlerisch wertvollen Illustrationen in Holzschnitt und Kupferstich, die wohl nach Löhneyß' eigenen Angaben von guten Künstlern hergestellt wurden", von anderen Druckerzeugnissen der Zeit wohltuend ab. Die "Aulico Politica" behandelt im ersten Teil vornehmlich Fragen der Erziehung adeliger Sprößlinge, "des notwendigen Verhaltens und des Umgangs junger Herren" sowie der Ausbildung in Sprachen, Wissenschaften, Künsten, adeligen Beschäftigungen, adeligem Zeitvertreib und der militärischen Erziehung" (Brüggemann/B.). Im zweiten Teil behandelt er die Pflichten untergebener Räte, Offiziere und Diener, um schließlich im umfangreichsten dritten Teil die Einrichtungen und Zuständigkeitsbereiche der Staatsämter und Stände darzustellen und in entsprechenden "Ordnungen" juristisch eindeutig festzulegen. So gibt es eine Ehe-, Polizei-, Kleider-, Hochzeits- und Kindtaufordnung, eine Feuer-, Mühlen-, Forst-, Jagd-, Fisch-, Wein-und Bierordnung, eine Kanzlei-, Hofgerichts- und Stadtordnung, eine Apotheker-, Bäcker- und Schlachterordnung etc. Ausführlich wird auch der Soldatenstand abgehandelt. Besonderes Augenmerk aber widmet Löhneyß seinem Spezialgebiet, der "Bestellung des Berg Raths" und der "Berg-, Hütten- und Münz-Ordnung", worin er recht detailliert, unterstützt von 29 großen Holzschnitten des Moses Thym (s. Nagler, Monogrammisten IV,2187), die Verrichtungen im Berg- und Hüttenwesen beschreibt. Löhneysens "kameralistische Hauptschrift der Hof-, Staats- und Regierungskunst ... steht an Reichhaltigkeit des Inhalts und aufgeklärtem Urteil wie praktischem Blick hoch über der Masse der gleichzeitigen theoretisch-politischen Literaturerzeugnisse und bereitet unmittelbar auf die mit Seckendorf's "Teutschem Fürstenstaat" inaugurierte Periode der ersten Blütezeit deutscher Cameralistik vor" (ADB). Mit Besitzvermerk von alter Hand, der die Jahreszahl 1643, verbunden mit einem gezeichneten Anker und dem Begleitspruch "Ecce Polonia/ mea/ undovina!" zeigt, was auf Löhneysens früheren Arbeitgeber, den König von Polen, Churfürsten von Sachsen hindeuten könnte. - Einband fleckig, Rückenbezug am Fuß mit kleiner Fehlstelle. Vordere Vorsätze von alter Hand mit Merksprüchen und Zitaten sauber beschrieben. Gebräunt. Der fehlende Titel sauber in Kopie auf altem Papier ergänzt; das einseitig bedruckte Bl.

Die Tafeln mit der Darstellung des "Braunschweiger Trauerzugs", die inhaltlich nicht zum Buch gehören, aber von den Söhnen Löhneysens nach dessen Tod dem Werk beigegeben wurden, fehlen und liegen in verkleinerten Photographien einschließlich der Negative bei. - Graesse IV, 246; Paisey L 1004; Humpert 45; Benzing 389; Brüggemann/Brunken 552; Prandtl (Löhneyß' Bericht vom Bergkwerck; in: Zschr. f.

        Apologia pro Galileo, Mathematico Fiorentino. Ubi disquiritur, utrum ratio philosopahndi, quam Galileus celebrat, faveat sacris scripturis, an adversetur.

      Erasmus Kempffer for Godfried Tampach, Frankfurt 1622 - 58 pp, [1 integral blank]. Bound in old vellum, rebacked with vellum spine, endpapers renewed. Pages somewhat spotted as typical of Frankfurt printings of the time, mainly untrimmed at head and foot, occasional minute restorations to blank margins. Scarce first edition of this important polemic: Campanella¿s contribution to the defence of Galileo, written in 1616 during the latter¿s first brush with the authorities but only published in 1622. The work is a spirited plea for freedom of thought (libertas philosophandi) as well as a concerted defence of the mobility of the Earth. ¿In addition to his interests in the astrological side of stellar phenomena, Campanella was a supporter of the Copernican system as defended by Galileo. In several works, principally the Apologia pro Galileo (1622), he sided with the embattled Florentine, not only supporting the Copernican theory but also on broader issues, including those involving the competing claims of religion and science¿ (DSB). The text adopts structure of a quaestio, divided into 5 chapters consisting of arguments against Galileo, their refutations, and vindications of pro-Galilean arguments. ¿In the Apologia, Campanella uses incisive and tightly-knit arguments while displaying an exceptionally remarkable hermeneutical skill ¿ at times making it hard for the reader to follow without getting lost in the myriad of citations and references¿ (Ernst, p 164). For all its early advocacy of Copernicus, it should be noted that Campanella¿s tract also represents an important catalogue of contemporary objections to Galileo, dealt with item by item. Written while Campanella was still languishing in prison in Naples, the manuscript Apologia was evidently deliberately transmitted to a Protestant publishing house for publication. It bears no imprimatur much less an ecclesiastical license, and one imagines that the book¿s reception in Rome in 1622, written by a radical former Dominican, probably did more to cast aspersions on Galileo¿s case than to aid his position! According to Germana Ernst, ¿the treatise¿ enjoyed a considerable circulation in the seventeenth century and helped to connect the name of Galileo and Campanella, his ¿defender¿¿ (p 160). The work was originally sent by Campanella to Cardinal Caetani in Rome sometime before September 1616, as attested in several letters, before finally reaching the press in 1622. As he would later remind Galileo, Campanella¿s had been the only voice to come to Galileo¿s defence in print at this early date: ¿and recall that my text alone was published in your defence, and not the texts of others¿ (quoted in Ernst, p 161). The preface, purportedly written by the printer Erasmus Kempffer, betrays a deep-seated enthusiasm for heliocentrism as well as a striking familiarity with contemporary authors who discuss the Copernican doctrine. Indeed, a list is even given enumerating the pantheon of contemporary heliocentrists; when compared to Westman¿s list of 10 confirmed 16th century Copernicans, we find several notable additions: the German astronomer David Origan, the Venetian Platonist Franciscus Patricius, and William Gilbert and Nicholas Hill in England. The title page of the present copy does not contain the allegorical engraved border apparently found in some copies, evidently a minority. * Brunet I 1520; Cinti 150 (71); Riccardi I: 217 (¿rarissimo¿); cf also the definitive study by Germana Ernst, Tommaso Campanella: The Book and the Body of Nature (Springer, 2010).

        Turat Musa al-Nabi alayhi al-salam id est Pentateuchus Mosis Arabice.

      Leiden, Thomas Erpenius for Johannes Maire, 1622.. 4to. (16), 458, (2) pp. With the title in a woodcut architectural frame, head- and tailpieces built up from cast arabesque fleurons, woodcut factotums. 18th-century sprinkled calf, sewn on 5 cords, gold-tooled spine with red sheepskin label, waved combed paste-downs, red and blue sprinkled edges.. "First printing of the Pentateuch in Arabic characters" (Smitskamp). Edited by Thomas Erpenius and printed with his influential nashk Arabic types, cut under his direction by Arent Corsz. Hogenacker in Leiden. It gives the text of a 13th-century translation of the Pentateuch in the Maghreb dialect (spoken in Mauritania). Erpenius was one of the most distinguished orientalists and by far the best Arabist of his day. He published an influential Arabic grammar and several excellent critical editions. His own private printing office, equipped with Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, Ethiopic and Turkish type, produced its first works as early as 1615. Hogenacker later cut more Arabic types and his heirs sold Arabic and other punches and matrices to Oxford University for their embryonic printing office. From the library of the noted Swedish orientalist, translator and librarian Carl Aurivilius (1717-1786) with his manuscript bookplate on the paste-down, dated 1750. Further with 18th-centry owners'inscriptions: "Lesinus Olbers [?] Ups[ala]. 1782", "Carol Johannes Knos Upsaliae 1797 [?]" and modern Uppsala library stamps. A few leaves with a faint waterstain a the foot, some spotting. The binding chafed, the head of the spine slightly damaged and the edges of the endleaves browned.

L?opera fu pubblicata per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1622, ma solo nel 1700 fu stampata a Modena, in una maniera, peraltro, molto scorretta. ?L?infelice stampa? suscitò scontento nell?ambiente modenese del periodo poiché «era ben viva l?esigenza di un?edizione della Secchia che riunisse i pregi della correttezza fisiologica per un testo spesso sottoposto ad arbitrii e il decoro di una stampa che fosse anche un doveroso tributo di omaggio alla memoria del Tassoni... In questa situazione le tre stampe di Bartolomeo Soliani, [quella in 24mo del 1743 e quelle in 4to ed in 8vo del 1744], costituirono un avvenimento editoriale di grande rilievo. Precedute da un lungo lavoro di preparazione, esse, infatti, colmarono una pressoché secolare lacuna e, rispondendo ad un?esigenza culturale, assolsero al duplice impegnativo compito di proporre un testo filologicamente curato ?" quello voluto da Urbano VIII ?" e di offrire, almeno due di esse, un?illustrazione di prim?ordine» (Puliatti, Tassoni, p.184 e nr. 128).

        Tooneel van de Mannelicke Achtbaerheyt, aen-gewesen in de Voor-sprake, teghen-sprake, ende uyt-sprake, gedaen over de weygheringhe van de Koninginne Vasthi

      Middelburg: 1622. 4to (233 x 176 mm). [16], 60, [19], [1 blank] pp. Large emblematic publisher?'s mark on title-page, four half-page engraved illustrations, by Pieter de Jode (2), Pieter Serwouters, and Willem van der Passe after Adriaen van der Venne. Woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. Title a bit soiled and with a short marginal tear, light dampstaining to first and last leaves. Later parchment over pasteboards, ms. spine title. Provenance: Samuel Ashton Thompson Yates (1842-1903), bookplate dated 1894.*** first edition of Cats?' retelling of the Biblical tale of Queen Vasthi, the wife of Ahasuerus, who refused her husband?'s summons to appear before his guests wearing the royal crown (and presumably nothing else), and who was duly punished. The first part of Cats?' word-playing verse adaptation, whose title may be translated as The Theater of Manly Respectability, is a long speech in the Queen?'s defense and in defense of all women, followed by a speech against her and in favor of ?"Manly Respectability.?" The work concludes with the Judgment, which is that Vasthi should obey her husband, because women?'s subservience to men is a law of nature. A final poem titled ?"Aller Princessen, Spiegel, aller Vrovwen, Spoor,?" is illustrated with an engraving showing the humbled queen wearing a yoke around her neck. The parallels and differences between the Biblical Ahasuerus and Herodotus?' tale of King Candaules (supplied in Latin and Dutch translations in an appendix), whose wife?'s rebellion was more successful, are fully exploited by Cats, and more importantly for the book?'s influence, by the illustrator. Cats?' usual partner Adriaen van de Venne supplied the masterful engravings of this work, which was published by Adriaen?'s brother Jan (who later that year set up his own printing shop). Jan van de Venne no doubt ?"encouraged his brother, the gifted draughtsman, to make preparatory drawings for the engravings which decorated the books he published ?" (Bol, p. 114). These prints, notably the scene of Candaules?' naked wife being surprised by Gyges, served as models for a number of Dutch painters. The Van de Venne brothers played a central role in the dissemination of Cats?' poetry, and it is their joint production that makes the works come alive: ?"The complete works of Cats, together with Van de Venne?'s illustrations formed a sort of housebook of the Dutch people which remained popular for two centuries...?" (op. cit., p. 117). Following the privilege on the title verso is a letter from the publisher to all bailiffs, officials and readers (?"Noodige Waersschouwinge...?"), complaining of the many counterfeit editions of Cats?' 1620 Self-stryt, and explaining how to tell them apart. A second edition (without the Noodige Waersschouwinge) appeared later in 1622, and several further editions followed. De Jonge van Ellemeet, Museum Catsianum, 97; Bol, Adriaen Pietersz. Van de Venne (1989), p. 118.

Durch seine Methodik und relative Neutralität gilt er als einer der ersten Naturwissenschaftler im modernen Sinne. 1558 veröffentlichte er die ?Magia naturalis? (in der er unter anderem eines der wenigen existierenden Hexensalbenrezepte überlieferte), die ihm ersten Ruhm brachte. Weiters erwähnt er erstmals ein Wassertrommelgebläse zur Erzeugung eines kontinuierlichen Luftstrahles für eine Schmiedeesse in Nettuno südlich von Rom. Eine von ihm 1560 in Neapel gegründete Gesellschaft zur Erforschung der Natur, die Academia Secretorum Naturae , musste auf Befehl des Papstes aufgelöst werden. Seine grundlegende Schrift über Kryptologie mit dem Titel De furtivis literarum notis (Über die verborgene Bedeutung der Buchstaben), die er 1563 veröffentlichte, machte ihn endgültig berühmt. Um 1570 herum entwickelt er die Camera obscura weiter, einen frühen Vorläufer der Fotokamera.Die jeweils 1583 bzw. 1584 veröffentlichten Pomarium (über Obstanbau) sowie Olivetum (über Olivenanbau) flossen ein in sein umfassenderes Werk über Agrikultur, Villae von 1592. Zuvor jedoch, 1586, erschien sein zweites Hauptwerk, ein medizinisches Werk unter dem Titel De humana physiognomia, 1588 gefolgt von einem Werk über die Physionomie der Pflanzen, ?Phytognomica? Hier versuchte er, vom Aussehen und dem Lebenslauf der Pflanzen auf ihre Wirkung zu schließen. So führte er aus, dass Kräuter mit gelbem Saft die Gelbsucht heilen könnten, solche mit rauhen Oberflächen Hautkrankheiten. Wegen seiner Beschäftigung mit Magie und Physionomie musste er sich 1592 vor der Inquisition verantworten, das Verfahren blieb aber für ihn folgenlos. In den folgenden Jahren zog er sich aber vorsichtshalber von den Wissenschaften zurück und wandte sich der dramatischen Literatur zu. Seine Komödie La Trappolaria, eines von vielen erfolgreichen dramatischen Werken, erschien 1596 in Bergamo. 1600 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Relationi Universali... divise in sette parti... [and] Aggiunta alla quarta parte dell'Indie

      Venice: presso Alessandro Vecchi, 1622. Small thick quarto; with four engraved maps in the main work; complete with the rare "Aggiunta" section with its 33 woodcuts, 30 of them full-page; an attractive copy in fine condition in contemporary vellum, endpapers renewed; spine lettered in ink at an early date. Mixing the real with the fantastic: early 16th century woodcuts printed a century later. Posthumous edition of the highly regarded Botero chronicle, published in eight parts with eight title-pages, and including the very rare final part, the "Aggiunta alla quarta parte dell'Indie", with its extraordinary woodcuts. This section appears in just two of the very many early editions of Botero's Relationi, those printed by Vecchi in 1618 and 1622/23; the present copy - notable for the excellent dark inking of the images - is an example of the latter, which differs from the earlier printing in having the Aggiunta section laid out in a more pleasing manner with the text more attractively set in a larger font. This version also introduces another printing of one of the woodcuts to highlight the sectional title-page.Both printings are so rare that when the bibliophile Walter Oakeshott first discovered a copy of Botero with the Burgkmair cuts he thought it to be unique. He analyses and discusses the woodcuts at length in his authoritative Roxburghe Club publication "Some Woodcuts by Hans Burgkmair". Although the woodblocks were cut in the sixteenth century they were not published then, and wormholes in the blocks that show clearly in the printing suggest that they must have lain idle for a substantial time.This remarkable series of sixteenth-century woodcuts divides into two parts, one of them comprising seventeen woodcuts depicting natives of India, Africa and Arabia which are generally considered the first serious study of African and Oriental native life and dress made for publication in a European travel book. Of this group, eight cuts are from a much larger block of 1508, which formed a panorama by Burgkmair known as 'The Procession of the King of Cochin'. The panorama was to have illustrated an account of a voyage to India undertaken by the German merchant, Balthasar Springer, on a Portuguese vessel in 1505-6, which was not published; no complete original impression of the block appears to be known and the cuts were issued first in their present form as here.As Eisler remarks ("Terra Australis The Furthest Shore", fig. 1; p.16), these Burgkmair woodcuts, founded on authentic observation of peoples in the Southern World, are 'one of the earliest and most dramatic studies of exotic people from the tropical regions visited by the Portuguese'. They were the immediate source for the extraordinary tapestry 'Triumph of the King of Cochin' by the Arras workshop, now in the Musée des Arts Africains et Oceaniens (see "Terra Australis", Catalogue number 2).The other series comprises fifteen woodcuts from an unidentified source, portraying monsters or 'Prodigies' in a series of extraordinary images which may be taken to represent a general European perception of the mysteries of the undiscovered worlds to the east and south. These depictions of the creatures likely to be found inhabiting these lands are accompanied by the Burgkmair cuts of actual native peoples encountered on a real voyage, without much distinction being drawn between real and imaginary. The weird imaginings include numerous remarkable evolutionary fantasies such as the skiapod whose immense foot has developed to shield him from the fierce sun, and numerous permutations of man-beast combinations. These are the creatures whom one might expect to see at the edges of the more imaginative early maps, recalling Othello telling Desdemona about "the Cannibals that each other eat, / The Anthropophagi and men whose heads / Do grow beneath their shoulders...". The full series of these astonishing images can be seen on the web site of the State Library of New South Wales ( search 'Botero' using 'On web site' option).Botero's universal geography was first printed in Rome in 1591, without the eighth part. Unlike most sixteenth century descriptions of far-off places, it was largely compiled from the author's first-hand knowledge. Botero, a Jesuit priest until middle age, travelled widely to investigate the condition of the Christian faith and the state of the Church at the furthest reaches of missionary activity. The observations made during these tours form the basis of his book, which deals with the physical and human geography of Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas and the East Indies. Four engraved maps in the main body of the work illustrate Europe, Asia, Africa and America.The Asia and America maps both show substantial representations of New Guinea with, in the Asia map, a "Terre incognite Australis" below. In the America map the very large New Guinea has a note that it was named "terre Piccinnacoli" by the Florentine traveller Andrea Corsali. This name appears in different forms in maps of the period, sometimes as "terra psittacorum" or Land of Parrots; Corsali was of course the first man to identify, describe and illustrate the stars of the Southern Cross.

Celebre teologo, il Bonacina nacque a Milano da nobile discendenza nel 1585. Docente di diritto canonico, ascritto alla Congregazione degli Oblati, fu nominato Conte Palatino da Ferdinando II. Fu poi referendario di Papa Urbano VIII, che lo nominò Vescovo di Utica. Fu negli anni romani, fino alla morte avvenuta nel 1631, che si impegnò nella elaborazione dei temi del Concilio di Trento trattando argomenti di diritto canonico ma anche temi fiscali e curiali. La prima edizione del "De Contractibus" è del 1620, e affronta i temi della mercatura, del cambio, della tassazione, delle polizze assicurative, etc. "L'interesse del Bonacina per i problemi economici nasceva dalla conoscenza diretta (maturata in uno dei più importanti centri mercantili quale quello Ambrosiano) dei nuovi sviluppi assunti dalla speculazione commerciale, e accoglieva le sollecitazioni dell'ambiente religioso milanese per una revisione della tradizionale giurisprudenza canonista, che colmasse il divario sempre piu' evidente fra le norme di condotta e pratica concreta, fra insegnamento teologico e linee direttrici dell'agire economico" ("Dizionario Biografico degli italiani", XI, 466). Il trattato "De Horis Canonicis" è in prima edizione.

        De Coelo Animato Disputatio Leonis Allatii amici ex animo cari Opera publicae utilitati procurata

      2 p.l., 44 pp. Small 4to, cont. limp vellum, arms in gilt of Cardinal Francesco Barberini on covers, panelled in gilt with round gilt flower devices in each corner, silk ties gone, a.e.g. [Heidelberg]: G. Vögelin, 1622. First edition, a gift from Cardinal Francesco Barberini to Galileo's assistant and co-author Mario Guiducci, inscribed on the title-page "Ex dono Illustrissime Cardinalis Barberini -- Marij Guiduccij liber est." This is a very rare book; I can locate only six other copies (see below). This copy represents the intersection of some of the most important dynamics of Baroque Rome. Written by Giulio Cesare Lagalla (1571-1624), medical doctor and professor of logic at the Sapienza University, in 1614, the book was seen through the press in Heidelberg by Lagalla's former student and future Vatican librarian Leone Allacci in 1622. This copy was given by Cardinal Francesco Barberini to Galileo's co-author Mario Guiducci in 1623. Lagalla was one of eight select friends and fellow investigators present at Galileo's famous demonstration of his telescope on 14 April 1611 and at Cesi's dinner in honor of Galileo which followed. Lagalla's De Phoenomenis in Orbe Lunae...Disputatio (1612) is the best record of this historic evening. Despite Lagalla's fertile and, at times, antagonistic relationship with Galileo, he has frequently been dismissed as a mere Aristotelian. In fact, as the Coelo animato disputatio makes clear, there was nothing traditional or conservative about his work. The tract was based on an oral dispute organized by the head of the Accademia dei Lincei, Federico Cesi, between Lagalla and the theologian Francesco Diotallevi. The subject of the dispute, held in Cesi's palace in the Borgo Vecchio in Rome, was the vexed question of the nature of celestial movement. Aristotle and Aquinas are the main authorities discussed, but Lagalla also includes references to the anathemas against Origen. The question of whether celestial bodies were moved by some form of soul was part of a larger debate, to which Lagalla devoted much of his life, on the nature of the human soul and its relationship to the body. The idea that the motions of heavenly bodies required constant intervention from an intelligence within the bodies themselves sat uneasily both with traditional Aristotelian and Christian cosmologies. Lagalla was absolutely aware of the dangerous nature of his ideas is evinced by documentation surrounding this book. In March 1620, he wrote to Galileo, saying: "I am about to have my work De Immortalitate animorum ex Aristotelis sententia printed, along with many other pieces of philosophy, among which there is where I show that the heavens are moved by an active soul (anima informante), not merely following the dogma of Aristotle, but also according to the true philosophy, so greatly reviled by the aforementioned [Jesuit] fathers, and deemed by them to be either erroneous or at least rash as a matter of faith. However, by the grace of God, it has been approved by the Holy Office of Rome as an opinion that, without the slightest scruple of error, may be held and published. Everything will be printed in the Stamperia Camerale, and as soon as they are finished I'll send you the books in your honor."-OG, XIII, 26, 6th March 1620, Lagalla (Rome) to Galileo (Florence). Lagalla shared with Bellarmine a dissatisfaction with traditional cosmologies, and denied some of Galileo's conclusions in the Sidereus Nuncius. In 1612, he published with the same printer an attack on Galileo's analogy between the terrestrial and lunar worlds, which he saw as tending towards Giordano Bruno's heresies. Lagalla's arguments on the moon and on the nature of light were taken seriously enough by Galileo for him to prepare a response: his heavily annotated copy of Lagalla's De Phoenomenis in Orbe Lunae...Disputatio (1612) is included in Antonio Favaro's national edition of Galileo's works. Far from being a staunch Aristotelian, Lagalla was a supporter of Galileo's cause: his observations on comets, he says, had lead him to similar conclusions to those expressed by Galileo and Guiducci in the Discorso delle Comete of 1619, which he said he could not "praise and promote enough"-OG, XII, 500-1, 21st December 1619, Lagalla (Rome) to Galileo (Florence). Censorship was a constant threat to Lagalla, due to his heterodox ideas on free will, the immortality of the soul, and cosmology. This may be the reason why this tract, completed in 1614, did not emerge until 1622, and even then not in Italy, but Germany, without a place of publication. The work was printed on the Protestant presses of Gotthard Vögelin, who in 1609 had published Kepler's Astronomia Nova. It was seen through the press in Heidelberg by Leone Allacci, future librarian to Francesco Barberini and a key figure at the Vatican Library. Allacci had recently been made a Reader at the Vatican, and been entrusted with the difficult task of removing from Heidelberg the Palatine Library. While negotiating which books and manuscripts to take to Rome, he also began his lifelong career of editing, though the Coelo Animato predates any works mentioned in his retrospective catalogue, Leonis Allatii Librorum Editorum Elenchus (1659). Allacci had studied medicine under Lagalla and would go on to write his professor's biography in 1644, defending him from charges of unorthodoxy with regards to the problem of providence. Lagalla was concerned with the possible taint that a Protestant printing might have on his book, and wrote to Allacci in February 1623: ''it would not have been possible to wish that my Questione could be printed with greater attention, diligence, and kindness -- your Lordship may imagine how indebted to you I am. Only one thing is wanting: if the book is to come to Italy (something I would like very much, and which will be a goldmine for the printer, because they are awaited with great curiosity), to avoid the contradiction of the imprimatur, that you do another beginning with the name of a Catholic place where it might be printed, and a Catholic printer, because otherwise they will not grant the imprimatur. This job could also be done by bookmen in Rome."-Curzio Mazzi, "Leone Allacci e la Palatina di Heidelberg," Il Propugnature, 1893, p.187, n. 2. Vögelin frequently omitted his location from imprints, as with this book, in order to have access to Catholic markets. It was already too late: Allacci had sent a copy, probably this one, to Francesco Barberini, who acknowledged receipt on 6th February 1623. On the 2nd of October of that year Francesco became a cardinal, the first such act of nepotism by his uncle Maffeo, who was now Urban VIII. Francesco was not only an avid book collector, but also an important broker of information in Barberini Rome, as well as a partial supporter of Galileo. The Roman context into which the book arrived was quite different from that in which it was written: in 1616, Galileo's attempts to separate theological from scientific authority had backfired, but by 1623 he was again on the attack, using the opportunity presented by Jesuit observations of three comets in 1618 to ridicule and satirize everything from their theories of matter to observational skill. The publication history of this dispute deserves a brief description: first came the anonymous [Orazio Grassi's] Disputatio Astronomica de Tribus Cometis anni MDCXVIII (1619), to which Galileo replied under Mario Giuducci's name with the Discorso delle Comete (1619). Next came the Libra Astronomica ac Philosophica (1619) by the Jesuit Orazio Grassi, using the anagram pseudonym Lotario Sarsi. Guiducci then replied directly with the Lettera a Tarquinio Galluzzi (1620). Other texts also contributed to the debate, such as Cysat's Mathemata Astronomica (1619), Scipione Chiaramonti's Discorso della Cometa pogonare (1619), Giovanni Camillo Gloriosi's De Cometis Dissertatio (1624), Giovanni Battista Stelluti's Scandaglio (1622), Fortunio Liceti's De Novis Astris et Cometis libb. Sex (1623), Grassi's Ratio ponderum Librae et Simbellae (1626) and the anonymous Assemblea Celeste radunata novamente in Parnasso sopra la nova Cometa (1619). The culmination of this campaign was Il Saggiatore, perhaps the most violent and funny scientific book ever written. With the patronage of Federico Cesi, it mocked, taunted, and harried Grassi, the author of the Libra astronomica, deepening Galileo's rift with the Jesuits that had opened with the dispute over sunspots a decade earlier. Cesi and Galileo were confident that the papacy of the enlightened Maffeo Barberini might offer fresh opportunities for the new science. They appealed to Urban's literary vanity with stylish satire, bifurcating Baroque Rome into opposing camps. Figures such as Lagalla, who did not quite fit into either of these camps, were left stranded. Despite close friendships with both Cesi and Galileo, Lagalla was denied entry to the Accademia dei Lincei. He considered himself as anti-Jesuitical as anyone in Rome, but was seen by his assumed allies as a dull Aristotelian. Guiducci, for example, described the book in one of his frequent weather reports to Galileo on the Roman climate: "Here, apart from your usual friends, you will find few who are able to appreciate your work properly. Nevertheless, the wit you use so wonderfully to explain your ideas I hope will delight greatly those who haven't yet heard it, and who until now have been used to reading other philosophers' books without pleasure. A few evenings ago I was amazed that someone had patience enough to read cover to cover Guilio Cesare Lagalla's De Coelo animato, which he did in my presence. He then gave me the book, and told me to make sure I didn't turn into a Peripatetic. I replied that I would like, in return for the lesson I had received that evening, to read him again a satire, were Signore Iacopo Soldani to send it to me, concerning the tramp from Stagira [Aristotle], which might please him more than Lagalla's writing had displeased me."-OG, XIII, 160-162, 18th December 1623, Guiducci (Rome) to Galileo (Florence), referring to the fourth Satire del senatore Iacopo Soldani "Contro i Peripatetici" first published in 1751. It seems extremely likely that this is the copy presented here. In the same letter, Guiducci mentions that he has been socialising with Francesco Barberini, and is probably just being discreet in not mentioning him again by name here as the dogged reader of Lagalla. The inscription on the title page of the copy reads "Ex dono Illustrissime Cardinalis Barberini -- Marij Guiduccij liber est" (A present from Cardinal Barberini -- this book belongs to Mario Guiducci). The hand of the inscription seems to be that of Guiducci himself, judging from contemporary autograph letters archived in the Galileo manuscripts of the National Library of Florence. The binding is that of a Barberini cardinal, and in 1623, this could only have been Francesco, as Maffeo was already pope and Antonio was not yet old enough. The edition is extremely rare, with only six other copies known, in Munich (they describe a 1614 edition but, after personal examination, I can confirm it is a ghost; they have the 1622 edition), Oxford, Toronto, Paris, the Casanatense, and the Vatican Library (with provenance from the Barberini library, presumably Maffeo's copy). The verso of the final leaf contains a list of Lagalla's published and unpublished works. A wonderful association copy of a relatively unknown but significant work. With thanks to Prof. Nick Wilding for considerable help with this description. ❧ Riccardi, II, col. 1n. .
