Antonio de Herrera, Jacques Le Maire
Description des Indes Occidentales, qu'on appelle aujourd huy le Nouveau Monde; avec La Navigation du vaillant Captaine de mer Jaques le Maire, & de plusieurs autres (Description of the West Indies, now called the New World; with The Navigation of the Valiant Captain of the Sea, Jacques le Maire, and several others) by Antonio de Herrera Published in Amsterdam in 1622, the first French edition of this highly important account of Spanish conquests in the New World. The text includes the first publication of of Jacques le Maire's journal of one of the greatest early Pacific voyages. Le Maire's 1615-16 expedition sailed around Cape Horn, explored the Pacific coast of South America, then ventured much farther west in search of Terra Australis. Le Maire's journal takes up more than sixty pages in the second section of the text. The first part of the book includes the first French translation (and second overall edition) of de Herrera's Historia General, an account of Spanish wide-ranging New World exploration and conquest. The third section briefly describes other voyages into the Pacific and also includes Pedro de Cevallos' account of Spanish possessions in the New World. Normally, early editions of this work list for $20,000 - $30,000 and even more. The copy for auction, however, is severely flawed. All seventeen maps are missing, as are two of the five illustration plates. Also absent are the title page and the last five pages of the text (it appears that these pages were simply never bound into this copy). The condition is otherwise good: the binding is firm, and there are s … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Inquisition] Garcia, Pablo
Early edition of this important guide compiled by the Secretary of the Council of the Spanish Inquisition, providing the exact formulae to be used in cases tried by the Inquisition feared both in the Peninsula and the American territories, where it had jurisdiction since the mid 16thcentury. A fundamental work for the understanding of the judicial process of the Inquisition: the Inquisitors were obliged to record in writing the proceedings, the torture applied, remarks and comments of the people under questioning, their clothing and other possessions, etc. It is in fact a demystifying book, as it outlines the procedures in careful detail, breaking so to speak the common understanding of how the inquisitorial process happened; in fact, it was a far less cruel process that it's Roman counterpart, torture could only be applied in very specific cases, when other methods had been exhausted, no serious or irreversible damaged could be caused, a doctor needed to be present to oversee it, no women or child could be subject to torture, etc. So systematic and organized, that even a maximum of time was imposed. The institution was given jurisdiction and form in the late 15thcentury partly in response for the need of creating solid institutions with undisputable power, it was given a structure, which hadn't been the case before; and was in part aimed at looking into the conversos, The work was vastly reproduced in the 16th, 17thand 18thcenturies, as it remained the standard manual for inquisitorial use.

Strassburg: Zetzner, 1622. 1622 Agrippa OCCULT Science Alchemy Magic WITCHCRAFT Astronomy Cabala Abraxas "For whosoever do, practicing through magical vanities, exorcisms, incantations and other demoniacal works and deceits of idolatry, brag that they can do miracles, I say all these shall be destined to the torments of eternal fire." - Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa was an early 16th-century a German writer on the occult and theology. One of his most important works was "Incertitudine" or "Declamation of Arts and Sciences" which was a satirical account of the disappointing state of science during the 1520s. It was an important contributor to skepticism and philosophers such as Montaigne, Descartes, and Goethe. According to Jones, this book is "one of the great classics of skeptical literature."This 1622 printing of "Incertitudine" covers a wide variety of occult topics including alchemy, astronomy, theurgy, magic rituals, summoning gods, discovering one's psyche, mysticism and the cabala, Abraxas stones and charms, general magic and natural magic, dreams and dream interpreting, dangers of witchcraft, phantasms and miracles, and much more! Agrippa's aim with this work was "to propose a cultural alternative, delineating a different philosophical approach, capable of forming a new intellectual élite, who would be seriously interested in the moral and religious progress of human community."

Bacon, Francis
London: W. Stansky for Matthew Lownes, and William Barret, 1622. Second edition, first published in 1622. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Henry VII by John Payne, title within architectural woodcut border (McKerrow & Ferguson 224), woodcut initials and headpieces, text within ruled border with blank marginal columns for side-notes (one printed side-note on X1b). [iv], 248 pp. Folio. Large paper copy on thick paper of the second edition of Bacon's history of Henry VII. Bacon had promised the work to James I while on trial, and he quickly completed the work following his impeachment for taking bribes. "It should be seen in the context of humanist historiography rather than as a precursor of its modern methods. Bacon was keenly interested in the conventional topics of virtue and fortune, but was unconventional in placing a much stronger emphasis on fortune than virtue. The central lesson of The History of Henry VII was that a ruler must remain open to accident and ready to seize the opportunities it offered" (ODNB). ESTC S122252; Gibson 116b.

Firme di appartenenza di un certo Luigi Bernini. Segno di tarlo nelle ultime 3 carte che lede qualche lettera di testo. Due piccoli emblemi (un albero con un serpente attorcigliato) timbrati sul titolo. Esemplare leggermente brunito.Prima edizione, seconda tiratura, della prima redazione della Secchia rapita, il maggior poema eroicomico italiano. Composta fra 1614 e il 1618, l'opera cominciò ad avere dapprima una circolazione manoscritta, attirando su di sé le attenzioni dell'Inquisizione. Dopo alcuni tentativi, anche clandestini, di farla stampare a Modena e a Padova, Tassoni fu costretto dalla censura ecclesiastica ad optare per la Francia. Fu così grazie all'interessamento di Jean Chapelain, amico e collaboratore del Marino, che il poema tassoniano vide la luce a Parigi negli ultimi mesi del 1621. Contemporaneamente all'edizione parigina, apparve sul mercato una contraffazione veneziana del tutto identica.Al momento di approntare la seconda edizione, che uscì a Roma con falso luogo Ronciglione nel 1624, Tassoni dovette comunque correggere il testo, venendo incontro alle richieste di Urbano VIII, che dopo la revisione ammise di non disdegnarla. Il testo corretto e il titolo mutato in La secchia rapita divennero quelli definitivi, riproposti nelle decine di edizioni che si diedero del poema, dentro e fuori dall'Italia, dopo la morte del poeta.Vasto poema in dodici canti in ottave, La secc … [Click Below for Full Description]

(4), 166, (1), 1 bianca. Mancano dall'origine le 6 carte preliminari contenenti la dedica a Madame de Bonnoeil. Tre sono le tirature identificate di questa prima edizione: la prima reca dieci carte preliminari, la seconda sei (in quanto la dedica viene ridotta da sei a due carte), la terza si distingue dalla seconda perché nell'avviso ai lettori rivela il vero nome dell'autore nascosto sotto lo pseudonimo d'Androvinci Melisone. Trattandosi di un esemplare rilegato in una preziosa legatura coeva e perfettemente conservato, l'assenza della dedica, non riscontrata nelle altre copie censite, potrebbe far pensare o ad una primissima tiratura o ad un esemplare di dono, nel quale volutamente è stato omesso l'omaggio alla Bonnoeil.

HERRERA Y TORDESILLAS, Antonio de.
Amsterdam: Michiel Colijn, 1622. 210 x 290mm, A Dutch copy of one of the few Spanish maps of the Americas printed during the period of exploration, from an updateded edition of Herrera's 'Descriptio Indiæ Occidentalis', first published in 1601. After a century of official silence on Spanish exploring, Philip II appointed Herrera y Tordesillas Historian of the Indies and allowed him full access to the official archives. The result was a comprehensive study of Spanish involvement in the New World. The 14 maps, regarded as very accurate for their time, were derived from the manuscript charts of Juan López de Velasco and are some of the very few printed Spanish maps of America. The Spanish fixation with secrecy means there are only twelve place names on the entire map. Although this Dutch edition was updated, the only difference on the map is that the title is top left rather than top right. BURDEN: 197.

Palafox y Mendoza, Juan de.
Melchor Alegre, Madrid, 1622. 41 h., 257 folios y 10 hs. de tablas. 30cmx22cm. Texto en español a dos columnas. Capitulares grabadas. Errores de paginación. Obra completa. Tres hojas adicionales insertas entre los folios 158 y 159; folios 234 y 239 mal encuadernados; última hoja con faltantes y rasgaduras, afecta poco texto. Encuadernado en pergamino de época, con faltantes en el lomo. Obra escrita por Palafox, durante su residencia en Puebla. Es un tratado recio, debidamente fundamentado, riguroso y claro, en el cual expone con firmeza su pensamiento en torno del estado general de la Monarquía Española y de los males que la afligían. De las obras de Palafox, la "Historia Real Sagrada" es la más importante desde el punto de vista del pensamiento político; muestra como en el ánimo de Palafox confluían dos corrientes de ideas: una religiosa, y la otra civil y política. La obra fue escrita durante sus dos primeros años de estancia en la Nueva España, es decir al calor de su experiencia como Visitador y Virrey. Otro aspecto que destaca, es el espíritu anti-maquiavélico que lo anima, pues pretendía escribir un tratado de educación política y moral que se deslindara claramente de las teorías elaboradas por Maquiavelo, contra las que Palafox luchó durante toda su vida.

Antonio de Herrera, Jacques Le Maire
Description des Indes Occidentales, qu'on appelle aujourd huy le Nouveau Monde; avec La Navigation du vaillant Captaine de mer Jaques le Maire, & de plusieurs autres (Description of the West Indies, now called the New World; with The Navigation of the Valiant Captain of the Sea, Jacques le Maire, and several others) by Antonio de Herrera Published in Amsterdam in 1622, the first French edition of this highly important account of Spanish conquests in the New World. The text includes the first publication of of Jacques le Maire's journal of one of the greatest early Pacific voyages. Le Maire's 1615-16 expedition sailed around Cape Horn, explored the Pacific coast of South America, then ventured much farther west in search of Terra Australis. Le Maire's journal takes up more than sixty pages in the second section of the text. The first part of the book includes the first French translation (and second overall edition) of de Herrera's Historia General, an account of Spanish wide-ranging New World exploration and conquest. The third section briefly describes other voyages into the Pacific and also includes Pedro de Cevallos' account of Spanish possessions in the New World. Normally, early editions of this work list for $20,000 - $30,000 and even more. The copy for auction, however, is severely flawed. All seventeen maps are missing, as are two of the five illustration plates. Also absent are the title page and the last five pages of the text (it appears that these pages were simply never bound into this copy). The condition is otherwise good: the binding is firm, and there are s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Liber singularis:" Francisco Vallés (1524-1592) a key author in the medicine of the late Renaissance, offers a number of daring interpretations from the point of view of his rational science - medicine - of the Old and the New Testament. Originally published in 1587, his "De sacra philosophia" circulated widely in Spain and Portugal, as well as in Italy, and was a turning point in Biblical interpretation. This treatise on scientific knowledge in the Bible is followed by another book on plants and minerals in the Bible: - "Similitudinum ac Parabolarum, quae in Bibliis ex Herbis atque Arboribus defumuntur, dilucida explicatio : in qua narratione singula loca explanantur, quibus Prophetæ, observata stirpium natura, conciones suas illustrant, divinaque oracula fulciunt:" Originally published in 1568 by Dutch botanist Levinus Lemnius (1505-1568), this is the first comprehensive work on the treatment of all plants in the scriptures.
