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]

Erpenius, Thomas (ed.)
Leiden, Thomas Erpenius for Johannes Maire, 1622. 4to. (16), 458, (2) pp. (including errata leaf). With the title in a woodcut architectural frame. Contemporary blindstamped leather on four raised double bands. Edges coloured and goffered. "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. - A few ink marginalia in Arabic and Latin by a contemporary scholar. Contemporary but not original binding rubbed with some discoloration; interior shows light dampstaining to margins; a few edge flaws. Breugelmans 1622-2. Darlow/Moule 1645. De Nave, Philologia Arabica 86. Smitskamp, PO 86. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

TASSONI, Alessandro (1565-1635)
Paris, Toussaint Dubray, 1622. In 12° (mm 138x81); cc. (6), 166, (2). Segnatura: a6 A-O12 (bianca la c. O12). Fregio xilografico al frontespizio, frontalini e capilettera xilografici. Pergamena rigida coeva o di poco posteriore, tassello con titolo in oro al dorso (macchia al piatto posteriore). 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, di cui si conoscono tre tirature differenti, apparve sul mercato una contraffazione veneziana del tutto identica, basata sulla terza tiratura dell'edizione parigina, ma stampata in modo grossolano. 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 test … [Click Below for Full Description]

TASSONI, Alessandro (1565-1635)
Toussaint Dubray, 1622. In 12mo (cm 13); legatura francese coeva in marocchino bordeaux con eleganti decorazioni sui piatti e sul dorso, tagli dorati (molto ben conservata); cc. (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. Ottima copia lievemente fiorita.RARA PRIMA TIRATURA DELLA PRIMA EDIZIONE della prima redazione della Secchia rapita, il maggior poema eroicomico italiano.

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.

Plena piel de época, muy rozada, con pérdidas en el lomo. Interior en perfecto estado de conservación.

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.

Amsterdam, 1622. 4to. 18th century full calf with double gilt line-borders to boards and five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Neatly rebacked with 90% of the old spine preserved. Corners very neatly restored. Old owner's inscription (Madrolle) to inside of front board, dated 1840, a small Jesuit stamp to front free end-paper and verso of title-page, and a stamp to blank outer margin of title-page (École Sainte Geneviève). Neat note about the author, in French ("one of the greatest men of his century and one of the founders of astronomy"...), to title-page by previous owner Madrolle. All leaves ruled around the text. A very nice copy with some even browning of some leaves and occasional very light dampstaining or brownspotting. F.*3 with a very neatly closed tear (16), 159, (1); 342 + (8), 44 pp. Woodcut title-vignette, woodcut initials, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text as well as many tables. ¶ Exceedingly scarce first edition of this milestone of astronomy, in which Tycho Brahe's geoheliocentric model is developed empirically and publicly for the first time, to common acceptance for posterity. Longomontanus' magnum opus presented for the very first time Brahe's planetary observations and put them into a systematic whole, presenting the results of the entire program of Brahe. Printed five years before Keplers' "Tabulae Rudolphinae", "Astronomia Danica" constitutes the first work to systemtize Brahe's observations. It will forever stand as a cornerstone of astronomical literature, presenting us with the Tychonic world system. "When Tycho died in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Early 19th-century ownership inscription on first text leaf, scattered slightly later annotations, small shelf label at upper corner of titlepage. Light wear to edges of text block, minor worming, occasional affecting text. Light tanning and foxing. Good plus. The Third Mexican Concilium, which was celebrated in Mexico city in 1585, had been called by Archbishop Moya de Contreras with the object of producing a comprehensive and compulsory social code for New Spain. The code was shaped, but only those rules directly affecting the conduct of priests (regular and secular) and nuns (cloistered and not) were promulgated. This volume contains the first publication of that social code. Llaguno (p.143) succinctly summarizes the contents of this fundamental volume in the history of colonial Mexican social and religious history when he discusses the "problemas fundamentales" that the council addressed: "1.o Instrucci�n religiosa de los indios convertidos y por convertir; 2.o Ministros id�neos para la obra misional y civilizadora; 3.o Adaptaci�n a la capacidad y modo de ser de los indios; y 4.o Defensa de los derechos de los naturales."

KEPLER, Johannes.
Linz; Frankfurt: Johann Planck; Georg Tampach, 1618; 1622; 1621. First edition, an immaculate copy, the finest we have seen, of the third of Kepler's great trilogy of astronomical treatises, following Astronomia nova (1609) and Harmonice mundi (1619), in which he introduced his three laws of planetary motion. The Epitome "ranks next to Ptolemy's Almagest and Copernicus' De revolutionibus ... [It] is the first systematic complete presentation of astronomy to introduce the ideas of modern celestial mechanics founded by Kepler ... The title gives no inkling that Kepler had erected an entirely new structure on the foundation of the Copernican theory, that he had rescued the Copernican conception, at the time disputed and little believed, and helped it to break through by introducing his planet laws and by treating the phenomena of the motions physically" (Caspar, p. 297). "This work [the Epitome] would prove to be the most important theoretical resource for the Copernicans in the 17th century. Galileo and Descartes were probably influenced by it" (Britannica). Kepler "hypothesizes that force is needed to sustain motion and that hence some force must be acting on the planets. This force, he speculates, originates from the sun, can act over a vacuum, and may be magnetic. In contrast to many scientists of the time, Kepler believes much of space to be a vacuum" (Parkinson). "One important detail is Kepler's extension of his first two planetary laws to all the other planets [they originally applied only to Mars] as well as to the moon and the four satellites of Jupiter" (Johannes Ke … [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. Ottima copia lievemente fiorita.RARA PRIMA TIRATURA DELLA PRIMA EDIZIONE 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.

4 Herrara y Tordesillas, Antonio de; Le Maire, Jacob
Amsterdam: Michel Colin, 1622. First Latin edition. Hardcover. A very nice copy. An extremely important account of the New World and the Pacific, publishing for the first time the true account of Le Maire - Schouten's expedition around the world. Schilder cites this expedition as "the last expedition of the 17th century to search for Terra Australis from the East". In entering the Pacific from this direction, the expedition avoided the VOC monopoly of the Straits of Magellan by rounding and naming Cape Horn. First Latin edition which is greatly expanded from the original Spanish edition of 1601 and published in the same year as a French and Dutch edition. All 1622 editions used the same maps. LeMaire's significant discoveries are illustrated in four of the finely engraved maps including the large folding map of the Pacific. Besides deriving a new route into the Pacific, the discoveries were used by all the great explorers that followed: Tasman, Bougainville and Cook. The first two parts of the book concentrate on knowledge of the New World. The added engraved title page has the first depiction of California as an island. The very fine maps of Central and South America and the Pacific coast added a great deal of new geographical knowledge. The second part contains the description of Le Maire's (1585 - 1616) voyage. The third part, "Descriptio Indiae Occidentalis," is by Pedro Ordonez de Ceballas, and the fourth part, "Brevis ac Succinta Americanae," is by Petrus Bertius. Folio, 4 parts in one. Printed and bound in leaves, i.e. … [Click Below for Full Description]
