        Gloria Bellica Serenissimi et Potentissimi Principis Maximilliani ¿

      Ex officina typographica G. Haenlini, Ingolstadii 1623 - (17) ff., 388 pp. (recte 386), (7) ff., with misnumbered pages at pp. 203-06, 243-46 and 260-71, 1 full-page engraving [20 x 15.5, the platemark]. Bound in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin, raised bands, boards beveled, somewhat scuffed, clasps missing. Blue edges, small hole repaired on half title and engraving, ownership inscription of Andechs Abbey on title page, minor browning in some quires. An excellent and unsophisticated copy. First edition of a rare volume of prose and verse glorifying the military exploits of the Prince-Elector (Kurfürst) of Bavaria Maximilian I (1572-1651) by members of the University of Ingolstadt, as compiled by the Jesuit philosopher-theologian Georg Stengel (1584-1651). The Gloria Bellica is an important witness to the intertwining of princely power, university politics, and religious sectarianism at the onset of the Thirty Years War (1618-48). Published in the year of Maximilian¿s elevation to Prince-Elector (1623), the book seems to have been an attempt by faculty at Ingolstadt to secure his favor. The increasingly Jesuitical university would be frequently imperiled during the flux of the war and quickly identified Maximilian, himself educated by Jesuits, as an important military protector. Maximilian¿s central role in the German Catholic League had been essential in checking the power of the Protestant Union. The volume is especially notable for its full-page prefatory engraving executed by the Augsburg artist Daniel Manasser, a highly detailed and elaborate allegory charting Maximilian¿s martial rise and the praise conferred on him from various secular and sacred sources. Merchants, clerics, Liberal Arts herself, and a throng of lesser citizens crowd together to salute Maximilian as he rides upward on the back of Pegasus toward the Olympian gods reclining in the empyrean; the demigod Hercules mediates between heaven and earth while battling Nessus and the Lernaean Hydra. Flanking Maximilian¿s ascent are 8 groups from whom he receives ¿Gloria¿: his enemies, his commanders and soldiers, muses and scientists, hometown Bavaria, the Catholic League, the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I, the pope and church, and indeed Mary, Christ and the saints. The text of the Gloria Bellica is arranged as a fuller version of this scheme, with 20 chapters each detailing a source Maximilian¿s glory. OCLC identifies U.S. copies at Harvard, Trinity (CT), Georgetown, and Chicago.

        Il nobile veneto

      Andrea Muschio, Venezia 1623 - In-4 (225x165 mm.), pp. (26), 255. Splendido antip. (allegoria delle virtù morali) inciso in rame, iniz. test. e final. xilogr. Bella legatura in piena perg. floscia, tit. ms. al dorso. Esemplare freschissimo e marginoso. Edizione originale di questo trattato propedeutico allo formazione morale, culturale e all¿esercizio delle funzioni politico-amministrative proprie alla nobiltà della Serenissima. L¿Autore, nativo della Sicilia (Librizzi, 1585 ¿ Palermo, 1655), pervenne a Venezia come istitutore dei rampolli della locale nobiltà e annotò tra i suoi allievi i fratelli Giovanni, Vittorio, Marco e Giacomo Donà (cui l¿opera è dedicata), ma anche Pietro Michiel, Vittore Contarini, Ferrante Pallavicino, Alvise da Mosto, ed il poi celebre Giovan Francesco Loredano (che, in seguito, lo ricordò in più occasioni con parole affettuose). Pietra angolare dell¿insegnamento che il Collurafi modula per la nobiltà lagunare sono, oltre alla pratica delle virtù morali classiche, la conoscenza delle lingue, lo studio della matematica e delle leggi e la conoscenza degli ordini della disciplina militare. Indica inoltre, con chiarezza, quali debbano essere i beni, le ricchezze, la bellezza necessarie alle occorrenze dei nobili nonché i vizi, tra i quali i giochi, che il nobile deve aborrire. Riguardo all¿esercizio della politica, egli raccomanda soprattutto l¿eloquenza, illustrandone i precetti, e ricorda che ¿per avere testa da Repubblica, bisogna avere stomaco da struzzo¿.

Bücherindex. Salvian zählt zu den bedeutenden Schriftstellern der Völkerwanderungszeit. Seine Berichte geben ein anschauliches Bild des Machtwechsels von der römischen zur fränkischen Herrschaft an Rhein und Mosel im 5. Jahrhundert nach Christus. Salvian wurde um das Jahr 400 nach Christus wahrscheinlich in Trier, vielleicht aber auch in Köln geboren. Er entstammte der romanischen Oberschicht, erhielt eine umfassende Ausbildung und fühlte sich bereits in jungen Jahren zu einem asketischen, nur Gott geweihten Leben berufen. So trennte er sich nach nur kurzer Ehe von seiner Ehefrau und seiner Tochter, denen er aber zeitlebens eng verbunden blieb. Seine Lebenszeit verläuft parallel zum endgültigen Niedergang der römischen Macht und dem Ende der Herrschaft der Römer am Rhein, was ihn zum Zeitzeugen eines einschneidenden politischen Wendepunkts macht. Er verließ seine durch die Germanengefahr bedrohte Heimat und ließ sich in dem Inselkloster Lerinum (heute Lerins, nahe Cannes) nieder, wo er erschüttert durch die Umwälzungen seiner Zeit mahnende theologische Werke zu verfassen begann. Sein wichtigstes Buch ist „De gubernatione dei", das sich mit den Zeitereignissen unter theologischem Blickwinkel auseinandersetzt. In diesem Werk wird die scheinbare Ungerechtigkeit des Erfolgs der un- beziehungsweise fehlgläubigen Barbaren über die christlichen Römer mit der größeren Sittenstrenge der Ersteren und der moralischen Verderbtheit der Letzteren begründet.nach obenBesonders wichtig im regionalgeschichtlichen Zusammenhang sind dabei die Erwähnung der Städte Mainz und Trier, die als zerstört beschrieben werden, und der Stadt Köln, die „ voll von Feinden" sei. Da im Zusammenhang mit Köln von Zerstörung ausdrücklich keine Rede ist, dürfte dies ein Hinweis darauf sein, dass dort der Übergang von der römischen zur fränkischen Herrschaft weitgehend gewaltfrei verlaufen war. Auf Trier wird in diesem Werk noch weitere Male verwiesen. Sprache: französisch vorderes Gelenk offen, wenige Seiten mit unwesentlichen randläsuren, sonst ganz vorzüglich erhalten.

        ZEEUSCHE Nachtegael

Zeeusche Nachtegael, ende des selfs dryderley gesang: Geheel anders inder waerheyt verthoont, als de selve voor desen by sommighe uyt enckel mis-verstant verkeerdelijk is gehordeelt. Four parts in one volume. [10], 86; [4], 60; [4], 63, [1]; [8], 114 pp. Illustrated with an allegorical woodcut with the muses of poetry and painting on the main title, repeated on the title to the fourth part, full-page engraved coat-of-arms of "the singing man" with two putti holding a silver platter bearing a human tongue, a full-page self-portrait of Adriaen van de Venne cut by Wenceslas Hollar and 15 large engravings in the text, by Willem van de Passe, etc. all after Adriaen van de Venne. 4to., 234 x 180 mm, bound in full contemporary Dutch vellum over boards, blind-stamped floral arabesque lozenge in center, title hand-lettered on spine. Middelburg: Jan Pietersz van de Venne, 1623. |~||~||~||~||~| A fine copy of this rare Dutch poetical work; one of the key illustrated books issued in the time of Rembrandt and the Golden Age of the Netherlands. The Zeeland Nightingale is one of the finest of the many excellent seventeenth-century Dutch emblem books. The text represents a poetic anthology celebrating Zeeland's literary, artistic and poetic culture. "The bulk of the poem is devoted to an investigation of the nature of painting and its relation to poetry. Much attention is devoted to painting's ability to capture the whole of the visible world" (Ackley, Printmaking in the Age of Rembrandt, pp. 105-106). The Nightingale is divided into three songs or sections. Adriaen van de Venne's own poem, the Zeeusche Mey-Clacht or "Zeeland May Plaint" comprises the first section, with the famous Minne-Sang or "Love Song" illustrated by the Narcissus figure. This is followed by the Seden-Sang or "Song of Morals and Manners" and the Hemel-Sang or "Heavenly Song." "The Mey-Clacht is a kind of personal artistic credo of the Zeeland painter-poet. The poem opens just before dawn on May Day with the melancholy poet wandering in the Zeeland landscape" (idem). Adriaen Pietersz van der Venne (1589-1662) "was one of the most prolific designers for book illustration. No other seventeenth-century Dutch painter or illustrator recorded in such detail the daily life of all classes of Dutch society" (idem). The exquisite images include the famous engraving of Narcissus staring at his reflection in a pool of water; a few exceptionally rich garden scenes; a lively quarrel in a village square with the town-folk battering each other with chairs, brooms, baskets and cooking ladels; street venders selling mussels and one sharpening knives, shovels, etc.; and a Brueghel-like country celebration with peasants dancing to the tunes of flute and drum. In this special volume Van der Venne achieved an aesthetic and historical chef d'oeuvre of text and image. Upper hinge partially cracked, although ties strong and completely intact.

        (Übers.) Liber commentarius in Salvianum Massiliensem ad Universitate atque academias Germaniae. Cui accesserunt notae Johannis Weizii, Tobiae Adami, Theodori Sitzmani et Johannis Alexandri Brassicani.

      Nürnberg (Sumptibus Halbmayerianis), 1623.. Editio secunda. Titelblatt, (14), 619, (60) S.; Titelblatt, 95 ungezählte Blätter mit sehr zahlreichem teils figürlichem gestochenem Buchschmuck. Prgt der Zeit. vorderes Gelenk offen, wenige Seiten mit unwesentlichen randläsuren, sonst ganz vorzüglich erhalten.. Vorgebunden sind: Salviani Massiliensis Opera: Ad Ludovicum XIII.

Bücherindex, Providentia Dei (13 Bl.), Salviani operum Tomus alter in quo sunt libri quaruor adversus avaritiam. Ad illustrissimum Principem Philippum II. Stetini Pomeraniae Ducem. (170 S.), 28 Bl. Bücherindex. Salvian zählt zu den bedeutenden Schriftstellern der Völkerwanderungszeit. Seine Berichte geben ein anschauliches Bild des Machtwechsels von der römischen zur fränkischen Herrschaft an Rhein und Mosel im 5. Jahrhundert nach Christus. Salvian wurde um das Jahr 400 nach Christus wahrscheinlich in Trier, vielleicht aber auch in Köln geboren. Er entstammte der romanischen Oberschicht, erhielt eine umfassende Ausbildung und fühlte sich bereits in jungen Jahren zu einem asketischen, nur Gott geweihten Leben berufen. So trennte er sich nach nur kurzer Ehe von seiner Ehefrau und seiner Tochter, denen er aber zeitlebens eng verbunden blieb. Seine Lebenszeit verläuft parallel zum endgültigen Niedergang der römischen Macht und dem Ende der Herrschaft der Römer am Rhein, was ihn zum Zeitzeugen eines einschneidenden politischen Wendepunkts macht. Er verließ seine durch die Germanengefahr bedrohte Heimat und ließ sich in dem Inselkloster Lerinum (heute Lerins, nahe Cannes) nieder, wo er erschüttert durch die Umwälzungen seiner Zeit mahnende theologische Werke zu verfassen begann. Sein wichtigstes Buch ist "De gubernatione dei", das sich mit den Zeitereignissen unter theologischem Blickwinkel auseinandersetzt. In diesem Werk wird die scheinbare Ungerechtigkeit des Erfolgs der un- beziehungsweise fehlgläubigen Barbaren über die christlichen Römer mit der größeren Sittenstrenge der Ersteren und der moralischen Verderbtheit der Letzteren begründet.nach obenBesonders wichtig im regionalgeschichtlichen Zusammenhang sind dabei die Erwähnung der Städte Mainz und Trier, die als zerstört beschrieben werden, und der Stadt Köln, die " voll von Feinden" sei. Da im Zusammenhang mit Köln von Zerstörung ausdrücklich keine Rede ist, dürfte dies ein Hinweis darauf sein, dass dort der Übergang von der römischen zur fränkischen Herrschaft weitgehend gewaltfrei verlaufen war. Auf Trier wird in diesem Werk noch weitere Male verwiesen.

Also, the Commerce with a great blacke Merchant, called Buckor Sano, and his report of the houses covered with Gold, and other strange observations for the good of our owne countrey; set downe as they were collected in travelling, part of the yeares, 1620. and 1621

      3 p.l. (lacking the first leaf, a blank; title a little soiled), 143, 152-66 pp. Small 4to, cont. English limp vellum. London: N. Okes for N. Bourne, 1623. First edition of one of the great early English accounts of the exploration of the interior of Africa and the first to be published separately (others appear in collections); it is a classic account of the search for gold. Ghana, the earliest known empire of the western Sudan, first entered the historical consciousness of North Africa near the end of the eighth century but probably originated long before. Famous to North Africans as the "Land of Gold," Ghana (which, apart from its name, has no historical connection with modern-day Ghana) was said to possess sophisticated methods of administration and taxation, large armies, and a monopoly over the notoriously well-concealed gold mines. Ghana was the main supplier of gold in the trans-Saharan trade, which linked the Mediterranean economies that demanded gold -- and could supply salt -- to the sub-Saharan economies, where gold was abundant. In 1620, "Jobson (fl. 1620-23), merchant and travel writer...was sent as one of the supercargoes on the third of a series of expeditions up the Gambia River undertaken by a group of London entrepreneurs who had in 1619 been granted a crown patent to trade in west Africa. Although the area was already frequented by English traders, the first two expeditions to tap the age-old trans-Saharan gold trade, still known in Europe only from its terminus in the Moorish states of north Africa, had failed. Jobson and his companions reached the Gambia in November 1620, established a base near the mouth, and then sailed some 200 miles up the river until it became too shallow to continue. Jobson, with nine of the crew and some African guides, then went on in an open rowing boat to Tenda (in modern Senegal), where, he had been told, he would find an itinerant gold trader, Buckor Sano. Sano was delighted to meet him. He had no gold then available but promised that if they returned he could easily supply it in exchange for imported trade goods. After ten days Jobson and his party returned, rejoined the ship, and left the Gambia in June 1621... "On his return Jobson published an account of the expedition, hoping to persuade the 'gentlemen adventurers' to send out another. But none was sent. His book, however, entitled The Golden Trade...(1623; reprinted 1904), the first account of the area in English, attracted interest. It is a garrulous, disorganized production, but full of detailed accounts of the country -- the geography, the customs he observed among the inhabitants, and the flora and fauna."-ODNB. There is also much about the mining of gold. A delicious copy of a book of considerable rarity. With a modern note stating this copy comes from the library of the great collector King Manuel of Portugal. ❧ NTSC 14623. .

      Lyon, (Lugduni), Sumpt. Andreae Brugiotti Bibliopolae Romani, (colophon at the end: Lugduni, Ex Chalkographeiôi Ioannis Iullieron, 1623), 1623. Small folio. (XII),XXIII,135,142,(XIX),(1 blank) p.; illustrations. Vellum 30.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 3,298; Brunet 4,897; Ebert 17998) (Details: Editio princeps. 7 thongs laced through cover; short title in ink on the back; title in red and black; big engraved printer's mark on the title, a radiant sun, motto: 'flammis ipse suis'; woodcut head & tail pieces and initials; some engravings in the text; text printed in 2 columns, Greek with facing translation into Latin; after the text follow 135 p. with historical and text critical observations by Alemannus; at the end the fragments of the Anekdota drawn from the Suda, and 3 indexes) (Condition: Vellum soiled; frontcover slightly curved; front hinge cracking, but strong; right edge of front flyleaf and of the title somewhat thumbed; small inscription on the verso of the front flyleaf) (Note: This is the editio princeps of the 'Secret History', (Anekdota in Greek, or Arcana Historia in Latin) of the Greek historian Procopius, born in Caesarea in Palestine ca. 500 A.D. He was a member of the staff of Belisarius, the most important general of the emperor Justinian. He accompanied him as a kind of confidant on his campaigns against the Persians (531), the Vandals in the North of Africa (533), and in Italy against the Goths (536/50). During these campaigns he probably took down notes, from which he drew later writing his 'De Bellis', i.e the 'History of the wars of Justinian'. This work, consisting of 8 books, is the main source and often the only one for our knowledge of this age of transition. Procopius was an eyewitness of the events, and in his History he displays a 'achtungswerte Wahrheitsliebe'. (Krumbacher, Gesch. der Byz. Lit., p. 233). He made also use of documents and other accounts. The hero of the first 6 books is his general Belisarius. In the 7th book the author describes how his hero Belisarius became gradually a disappointment to him. He also critizes the mismanagement of the finances by the emperor Justinian and his wife the empress Theodora, which is overstretching the resources of the empire. Book 8, described by Procopius as 'poikilè', i.e 'varia' deals with the aftermath of the 3 wars. Nowadays the 'Secret History' is considered to be a separate work of Procopius, whereas Nicolaus Alemannus presents it as the 9th book of the 'History of the wars of Justinian'. In the 'Secret History', which covers the same period als the first 7 books, Procopius changes his tune. From great politics he turns to the ugly politics of court scandal, where the dark side of Justinian is exposed. The book is in fact a libel against the emperor and his wife, and sometimes also against his former hero Belisarius. 'It is a virulent, scurrilous, and often scabrous attack upon the whole policy of Justinian, who is blamed for everything from barbarian invasions and financial insolvency to floods and earthquakes' (OCD, 2nd ed. p. 881). The main argument is that Justinian and Theodora have ruined the empire, because of their wars and mismanagement. The difference between the rational 'History of the wars of Justinian' and this demonizing libel, full of gossip and pornographic defilement has led historians to believe that this product of hate and revenge was not written by the 'honest' historian Procopius. Nowadays it is generally accepted that Procopius is the author. (OCD s.v. Procopius, NP s.v. Prokopios). Procopius' work is written in a clear and classicizing style, with many echoes of earlier historians, especially Thucydides, and it became an example for later byzantine historians. Not much is known about the editor Nicolaus Alemannus. He was Librarian of the Bibliotheca Vaticana, and Ostrogorsky calls him a Greek. He follows here 'Zedlers Grosses vollständiges Universallexicon', vol. 1, col. 1121. Zedler is however more cautious, because Alemannus, or, he says, Alamannus 'soll nach der meisten Meynung von Geburth ein Grieche gewesen seyn'. Alemannus was an exponent of the first phase of the renewed scientific interest in byzantine culture of European Humanism at the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th century. This phase is characterized by the editing and translation into Latin of byzantine sources. (G. Ostrogorsky, Gesch. des Byz. Staates, München 1963, p. 2) In his 'Ad Lectorem' Alemannus declares that 2 manuscripts of this not yet published work of Procopius were found hidden in some corner of the Vatican Library, both in bad condition. One other of the 'Arcana Historia', once brought by Catharina de Medici to France, was nowhere to be found, he tells, and another was lost during a shipwreck. He continues that copies of the first 8 books circulated during Procopius' lifetime, and that he offered a copy to Justinian himself. He had to keep his manuscript of the 'Arcana Historia' hidden as long as the emperor was alive. Alemannus confesses that he left out the less sophisticated (he means saucy) passages that didnot suit the 'modestia' and 'gravitas' of his time. The worth of the commentary of Alemannus was acknowledged by its incorporation two hundred years later in Niebuhrs Bonner Corpus (Corpus scriptorum historiae Byzantinae, CSHB, 1828-1897) (Collation: á-6, é-4, í-4, ó-4; A - R-4, a - u-4) (Photographs on request)

Mr. Pier Ios. de Salavador, doct. ez droicts, assesseur de ladicte ville.

      Avignon, Imprimerie de I. Bramereau 1623 - in-4, [6] ff. n. ch. (titre-frontispice gravé, titre, dédicace à Louis XIII), 278 pp., interversion des cahiers C et D, sans manque, avec 8 (sur 9) planches gravées à l'eau-forte par le graveur portugais Luiz Palma, manque le portrait du Roi, vélin souple à lactes, dos lisse muet, dans emboîtage moderne de demi-toile cerise, pièce de titre crème (reliure de l'époque). Plats un peu salis. Unique édition de cet ouvrage vraiment peu commun, qui relate les cérémonies et détaille les ouvrages édifiés à l'occasion de l'entrée solennelle de Louis XIII à Avignon. L'attribution à Thomas de Berton de Crillon (un des consuls d'Avignon cette année-là) est de Barbier : il est possible qu'elle provienne d'une lecture paresseuse du titre. Depuis les lettres patentes de février 1535, les sujets avignonnais du pape jouissaient également de la qualité de régnicoles ; les Rois de France pouvaient effectuer dans la ville des entrées, même en-dehors des périodes d'ocuppation du territoire (pour faire pression sur la Cour de Rome). Les 8 planches représentant les arcs de triomphe et autres constructions sont l'oeuvre du graveur portugais Liuz Palma, dont la manière reproduit de façon exacte le maniérisme baroque ibérique : elles ont de fait une facture très surprenante pour un oeil habitué à l'architecture très classique des élévations et vues "à la française". Il manque le portrait du roi comme très souvent. Ruggieri 426 & 427. Exemplaire de Boissier de Sauvages, avec ex-libris manuscrit. En l'absence de précision, il est difficile de dire à quel membre de cette famille provençale rattacher cette provenance. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Chronicon Originis et Fundationis Monasterij Scheirn ord S. Benedicti

      London - Typis Gregorij Hnlin 1623 - A scarce edition of this chronicle of the Benedictine monks of the ScheyernAbbey (Kloster-Scheyern) in Germany. Scheyern Abbey, formerly also Scheyern Priory (Kloster Scheyern) is a house of the Benedictine Order in Scheyern in Bavaria. The monastery at Scheyern was established in 1119 as the final site of the community originally founded in around 1077 at Bayrischzell by Countess Haziga of Aragon, wife of Otto II, Count of Scheyern, the ancestors of the Wittelsbachs. The first monks were from Hirsau Abbey, of which the new monastery was a priory, founded as it was against the background of the Investiture Controversy and the Hirsau Reforms. The original site proved unsuitable for a number of reasons, including difficulties with water supply, and the monastery moved in 1087 to Fischbachau. When that site too proved unsuitable, they moved to Petersberg, in 1104. In Latin. The dedication is to the Holy Cross and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary: the abbey has had in its possession since 1180 a relic of the Holy Cross from Jerusalem, and is still today a place of pilgrimage for this reason. By the 13th century the abbey had already gained a reputation for its school of illumination and its scriptorium. Including decorative title page. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: In a vellum binding. Externally worn, with dampstaining to the boards and slight loss in places. Backstrip lifting. Internally, firmly bound. Ink inscription and library label to front pastedown. Pages are quite bright, with some scattered light spotting throughout. Overall: FAIR. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
