        Opera Francisci Baronis de Verulamino Vice-comitis Sancti Albani, tomus primus: qui continet de dignitate & augmentis scientiarum libros IX.

      London: In officina Joannis Haviland, 1623. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (302 x 208 mm). [16] (of [20]), 493 [1] pp. Signatures: [par]4 (-[par]1-2), A6 B-3R4 (-R4). Errors in pagination: p. 35, 38 misnumbered 43, 46 respectively, p.[282] unnumbered; catchword on [par]2 recto: "emittit" (a variant setting has "Translatio."). Text within rules with a blank marginal column for side-notes, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces composed of printer's ornaments; woodcut printer's device to second title, lacking first title- and dedication leaf (both supplied in good facsimile, bound in by Bernard Middleton) and the final blank. Contemporary polished calf (rebacked by Bernard Middleton, corners bumpled, extremities little rubbed), preserving original gilt backstrip in compartments with red morocco label, pastedowns using unfolded printed sheets from 17th century astronomical work by Gassendi. Light waterstaining to upper blank corner throughout, occasional very minor spotting, numerous short annotations in light pencil. Provenance: the late Sir Nicholas Wall, English judge and former President of the Family Division and Head of Family Justice for England and Wales (bookplate to rear pastedown); Maggs Bros Ltd (handwritten entry of sale on 26.8.81 on rear pastedown). Except for the missing two leaves (which are supplied in good facsimiles), a fine, wide-margined copy. ----Gibson 129a; STC 1108. FIRST EDITION. Book 1 is for the most part a translation of book 1 of 'The Advancement of Learning', published in 1605; books 2-9 form an expansion of book 2 of that work. The whole was translated into Latin by William Rawley under the supervision of Bacon. This expanded edition became known as 'De augmentis scientiarum', which was intended as Part 1 of Bacon's proposed, but never completed 'Instauratio magna.'Extremely rare in any state. This copy last sold at auction at Sotheby's in 1947 (£42) and since then we can trace only the Pirie copy in 2015 (sold for $16,250). The copy was restored in 1983 by Bernard Middleton in London, with rebacking of the spine and insertion of a facsimile first title-page printed on old paper (the invoice for that tasked is loosely attached). Very Good.

        A Saxon Treatise Concerning the Old and New Testament.

      Small 4to. (180 x 135mm), pp. [xxi], 14, [lxxxvii], 12-43, [xvii] (duplicate pagination). Parallel Anglo-Saxon and English texts. Misbound but lacking no leaves except the final blank; gatherings O-V misbound after a4 and before b1 (i.e. pi2, par.4, a4, O-V4 (-V4), b-f4, A-N4). Title-page laid down, paper repairs to several of the following leaves with some loss of text to bottom fore-edge corners of leaves pi2, par.1, a1, a3, O3, O4, f1; dampstaining and associated light marks, small tears to a few leaves made fragile by damp; single small wormhole through fore-edge margins. Early 19th-century brown calf, cathedral-style blind stamped tracery arch window centrepiece to each board, with similar motif to each spine compartment. Upper joint splitting at centre but holding firm, much rubbed with some light surface loss, marbled endpapers. "A testimony of antiquitie" and "A sermon of the Paschall Lambe, and of the sacramental body and bloud of Christ our Saviour" have separately dated title pages; "Here followeth the words of Elfrike Abbot of S. Albons" and "The Lords Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten commandements in the Saxon and English tongue" have divisional titles; register is continuous. "A testimony of antiquitie" was first printed separately by John Day ca. 1566. William L'Isle (c.1569-1637) was a pioneer in the study of Anglo-Saxon. 'In the preface to his edition of the Saxon Treatise, he describes his methods in teaching himself this unfamiliar tongue: he studied whatever Old English materials he could find collected by previous antiquaries, as well as other tangentially relevant material such as the Dutch language, and then, having learned 'as it were to swimme without bladders', embarked upon independent studies. Lisle worked in collaboration with other antiquaries such as his kinsman Henry Spelman, and also Robert Cotton, in recovering Old English. His motives were both political and religious [...] Lisle edited this work from a manuscript belonging to Cotton, and as the title also shows, he suspected the incorrect identification of Ælfric Grammaticus with Ælfric, archbishop of Canterbury. Appendices contain homilies and epistles of Ælfric. The volume is almost in itself an Anglo-Saxon primer, containing as it does additional material such as the Lord's prayer, the creed, and the ten commandments in Anglo-Saxon with interlinear translation [...] The Saxon Treatise was Lisle's only work of Anglo-Saxon scholarship to be printed in his lifetime, and it was also reissued in 1638 under the title Divers Ancient Monuments.'

        Le relationi vniversali ... diuise in sette parti... In oltre vi s' aggiunge ... un breve racconto di Mostri, & Usanze di quelle Indie, con le sue Figure al naturale d' Alessandro de Vecchi ... Quinta impressione stampata & ricorrette.

      Venice: Alessandro Vecchi, 1622-1623. 4to (221 x 156 mm). Eight parts, numbered to six: with the Aggiunta to Part 4, and Part 6 in two parts, separately titled and paginated. Collation as in ICCU except Part 2 (see below). Pagination: part 1) [30], [2 blank], 71, [1 blank] pp.; part 2) [2) 20], 130, [2 blank]; part 3) 156, [8]; part 4) [16], 68; 5) Aggiunta alla quarta parte: [64]; 6) Capitani [i.e, part 5]: [8], 56; 7) [Part Six]) [8], 52; [16] 17-22, [2] blank] pp. Woodcut printer's devices on all titles except the Aggiunta; that on second title-page in part 6 from a smaller block. The Aggiunta with 33 woodcuts from 32 blocks, of which 30 full-page and 2 half-page, one of the latter repeated on the title, of which 15 of monsters and the remainder of natives of India, Guinea, and East Africa, by hans burgkmair. This copy bound without the four small engraved maps called for in part 1. A one and a half-inch inch tear in B5 of the Aggiunta, touching edge of woodcut. Slightly later flexible parchment, later manuscript spine title (lower endband renewed), covers dampstained along edges, spine darkened and with surface tears. Provenance: Count Wolfgang Engelbert von Auersperg, signature at head of title, noting the inscription in his catalogue, dated 1658; 19th-century bookplate of the Auersperg princely library in Laybach; Helmut N. Friedlaender, book label.*** A fine copy, although bound without the four maps, of the complete series of Botero's Relationi, with the scarce and sought after Aggiunta, containing an extraordinary series of early 16th-century woodcuts of native people of India, Guinea and Arabia, now attributed to Hans Burgkmair and considered the first realistic visual depictions of native non-European peoples produced for inclusion in a European travel account. Botero, priest and political thinker, was already celebrated for his argument, in Della ragion di Stato (1589), that power requires public consent, contradicting Machiavelli. In 1591 he commenced publication of a multi-part statistical study of the propagation of Christianity. As the succeeding parts appeared over the next five years, and the earlier parts were revised for new editions, the focus of Botero's Relazioni universali broadened into an "organic repertory of human geography, with systematic entries on the physical geography, demographic density, economic resources, military power, and political systems of all of the States of the world. The fruit of laborious compilation ... through its accurate method and careful comparison of data the Relazioni represented enormous progress compared to existing works in the genre" (DBI 13:357, my translation), and for nearly a century it was considered the best universal geography available, and was widely diffused and often reprinted. But in spite of its intrinsic value, of the many editions of Botero's innovative and important work, the most valuable are two posthumous editions, published in Venice by Alessandro Vecchi in 1618 and 1622, containing a Supplement to Part Four which had nothing to do with Botero (the Supplement or Aggiunta was published in 1618, and in a revised format, in two very similar editions, dated 1622 and 1623). Added by the publisher Alessandro Vecchi (who had recently acquired the woodblocks, as stated on the Aggiunta title-page: "... con le sue Figure al Naturale, Raccolte novamente da Alessandro de Vecchi"), no doubt with the simple goal of enlivening the many pages of Botero's text, this section has made the fortune of this famous book. The stark, strongly hatched woodcuts, half showing monsters, and the other half natives of India, Africa (Guinea) and "Arabia" (East Africa), were identified by Walter Oakeshott in 1960 as early 16th-century productions of Hans Burgkmair and his workshop. Oakeshott convincingly argued that the blocks had been produced for a projected edition of Balthasar Springer's account of his voyage from Portugal around the Cape of Good Hope to India in 1505. No illustrated edition of Springer is known; presumably the project never came to fruition. The first 15 cuts show mythological human-like monsters: a centaur, a dog-headed man, a cyclops, a three-eyed man, a lion-man, a man with a single pod-foot used for shade, a thing with a torso bearing a human face and the head of a serpent ... these would have been familiar to readers of Pliny, Herodotus, et al., and imitative of the border cuts in Schedel's Nuremberg Chronicle. The remaining 17 woodcuts depict real men and women, in attire and appearance exotic to European readers, playing music, carrying litters, holding spears, watching or holding children, from India, Guinea, and East Africa. Eight of these cuts, some of which have xylographic captions, clearly form part of a panorama that was cut up into single vignettes. Oakeshott postulated that this large block was meant to show a procession of the King of Cochin. The nine other illustrations of natives were probably also taken from a single large block; both blocks, of which no copies are known in their original undivided state, possibly formed a preliminary essay for Burgkmair's huge processional series the Triumphs of Maximilian.The woodcuts must have been known, as they were copied throughout the 16th century, but the blocks themselves were not published until the 1618 edition of Le relationi universali. For the 1622 edition (reprinted in the present 1623 edition) Vecchi added a title illustration and improved the layout, using a larger type fount. The blocks show signs of wear (cracks and a few wormholes) but the impressions of this copy are mostly sharp and dark.In this copy, as in the Getty copy, quire a in part 2 contains 10 leaves, not 8 as described in ICCU.

        A true relation of the unjust, cruell, and barbarous proceedings against the English at Amboina in the East-Indies, by the Netherlandish Governour, and Councell there The third impression.Including: -A translate of a Dutch pamphlet, entituled, A true declaration of the news that came out of the East-Indies, with the pinace called the Hare, which arrived in Texel, in June. 1624.-An answer to the Dutch relation, touching the pretended conspiracie of the English Amboyna in the Indies.London, printed by G. Purslowe [and Thomas Cotes] for Nathaniel Newberry, 1632. Small 4to (18 x 13.5 cm). With a woodcut frontispiece showing a torture scene, and 2 engraved armorial head-pieces. 19th-century light-brown calf, gold-tooled turn-ins. Rebacked.

      - ESTC S100292; Knuttel 4205a; cf. Ogborn, Indian Ink, pp. 120-129. Rare third edition of an account of the "Amboyan massacre". In 1623 the Dutch governor of the island of Amboina had executed 20 men, among them 10 English merchants and factors in service of the English East India Company, the Dutch company's rival in the spice trade. The men were accused of treason against the Dutch governor, and after confession (partly obtained by torture) they were sentenced to death and subsequently beheaded. The English East India Company instructed John Skinner to produce the present account, which was first published in 1624 and is sometimes ascribed to Sir Dudley Digges. Included is an English translation by J. Wing of a Dutch narration of the event (originally published as Waerachtich verhael vande tidingen gecomen wt de Oost-Indien), followed by the English refutation. The pamphlet was reprinted several times and it would play an important role in the outbreak of the first Anglo-Dutch war in 1652, as Cromwell referred to the incident in his declaration of war.Heavily browned and the first leaves waterstained, mounted and shaved. Rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. A fair copy.

        PORTUGAL Ð LISBON AND SETòBAL: ZEECAART VAN DE RIVIER VAN LISBON EN DE BANCKEN VOOR ST. VUES.

      - This attractive sea chart features the central coast of Portugal, including Lisbon and the Tagus Estuary, the coast running over to Cascais, and the Setœbal area. The city of Lisbon is portrayed pictorially, as are the saltpans near Setœbal. Both the mileage bars and the title are framed in fine baroque style cartouches. The present chart was part of Willem BlaeuÕs highly important and commercially successful sea atlas, Zeespiegel (1623), which was a vastly enlarged successor of his Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608). Given LisbonÕs global prominance as a port, this chart was one of the most important components of the atlas. The Zeespiegel remained the ultimate guide to navigation in Europe for some years and was no way superseded until the publication of Jacob Aertsz. ColomÕs De Vyerighe Colom (Amsterdam, 1632). The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon WillemÕs return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of BlaeuÕs anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the CompanyÕs official hydrographer. BlaeuÕs sea atlases of European waters, Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608) and the Zeespiegel (1623) were revolutionary, being the first broadly accurate maritime atlases. Blaeu later went on to create magnificent wall maps, large-format charts and eventually terrestrial atlases, all decorated with the finest Dutch Baroque artistry. Towards the end of his life, Willem Blaeu published the Atlas Novus (1635), a grand production that would be progressively expanded to include new volumes featuring all of the known world in unprecedented detail. The work featured numerous maps, exemplified by the present map, based on carefully selected sources and designed in the finest manner of the contemporary Dutch Baroque style. They became iconic works of cartography readily recognizable to generations of observers. The Atlas Novus and its successor publications were issued in 5 languages and became the most commercially successful works of their kind, setting a new standard for map publishing, emulated by cartographers across Europe. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) was the most successful mapmaker in the world in the mid-17th Century, during the apogee of Dutch cartography and the fortunes of the Dutch Republic. While he inherited a splendid enterprise from his father Willem, he managed to dramatically grow and expand the business to new heights. His greatest achievement was the worldÕs largest and most sumptuous atlas, the Atlas Maior, an 11-12 volume Baroque masterpiece (and successor to the Atlas Novus), in which editions of the present map appeared. The Blaeu firm flourished until its workshop was destroyed in a fire in 1672, ending almost three generations of hegemony over the map market. While many would try to emulate the BlaeuÕs success, this was never accomplished, and the Blaeu name stands alone at the fore of the Golden Age of Dutch cartography. The present chart, like all charts form the Zeespiegel, is today very rare. It is a critical element of any collection of maps of the Lisbon area or the maritime cartography of Portugal.

        Les Oeuvres

      Chez Nicolas Buon. Fourteenth collected edition. "This edition, the nicest and most complete of the old editions of Ronsard, is richly illustrated with copper engravings," (Seymour de Ricci, Éditions originales de Ronsard). Superb engraved title by Léonard Gaultier, the same as used for the collected edition of 1609, here in its second state. A small woodcut portrait of Muret in a medallion, half-page portrait of Richelieu, half-page portraits of Ronsard and Cassandre by Melland, half-page medallion portraits of Henri II, Charles IX, François Duc d'Anjou, Henri Duc de Guise, Anne de Joyeuse, Mary Stuart, the Duc d'Espernon, François II and Catherine de Medici, all engraved by Thomas de Leu. One figure on title of second volume by Léonard Gaultier.Text in italic (except the commentaries). Each work with its own half-title. Spine in compartments with six fleurons, gilt title, double fillet frame to covers. Leather cracked in title compartment and one other, adjacent, headpieces, joints and corners finely (almost invisibly) restored. About forty leaves of first volume browned. Volume two: title and about 30 other leaves browned, traces of light dampstaining and foxing to initial leaves. The final leaf of first volume bound at beginning of second (half title of the elegies), leaves 1515, 1517 and 1519 with right corner folded back.The best old collected edition of the author's works and without question the most attractive. Ronsard's poetry was in limbo for a long time before his rediscovery and celebration by the Romantics. Ronsard was pilloried in the 17th century by the leading Classicist, Malherbe, and the 18th century was not kind to him either. France had to wait for Prosper Blanchemain's 1857-1867 edition to get to know "the Prince of Poets." Chez Nicolas Buon à Paris 1623 in-folio (24,5x36,5cm) (18) 876pp. et (2) 875-1728p.

        Original Leaves from the First Four Folios of the Plays of William Shakespeare, 1623, 1632, 1663, 1685 with an Introduction by Edwin Eliott Willoughby....

      London: Isaac Jaggard, Edward Blount and others, 1623. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. San Francisco: printed by the Grabhorn Press for David Magee, 1935. Folio (370 x 247 mm). [30] pp. With an original leaf from each of the four folios tipped in; and facsimiles of the titles of the four folios. The original leaves contained are: First Folio: Henry the Eighth, pp. 229-230; Second Folio: Henry the Eighth, pp. 213-214; Third Folio: Richard the Third, pp 203-204; Fourth Folio: Richard the Third, pp. 195-196. Red morocco and marbled paper over boards, spine lettered in gilt. One of 65 copies (this one unnumbered) issued on Whatman paper. The text bright and clean, the original folio leaves little browned with light occasional spotting. Provenance: Amercian actor Charlton Heston* (1923-2008). A fine copy with excellent leaves of one of the most desirable leaf books.* Charlton Heston played Shakespeare's tragedies and historical dramas on stage and in movies on several occasions. He teamed up with David Bradley in the late 1940s to produce the first sound version of William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar", in which he played Mark Antony. In 1948, Heston was offered a supporting role in a Broadway revival of "Antony and Cleopatra", starring Katharine Cornell. Later in 1972, he directed the movie "Antony and Cleopatra" where he played Mark Antony again. His most frequent stage roles included the title role in Macbeth. Regarding the original leaves of the historic plays "Richard III" and "Henry VIII" from Shakespeare's Folios contained in this copy, it must be mentioned that Heston played Sir Thomas More in "A Man for All Seasons" in several regional productions in the 1970s and 1980s. He regarded "A Man for All Seasons" as the best play of the 20th century and called it the most rewarding experience - apart from Shakespeare - that he'd ever had on the stage (Charlton Heston, Actor's Life, p. 230). Very Good....

        Gerardus Mercator... Iudocus Hondius...

      Amsterdam: 1623. Engraved double-page portrait, 475 x 545 mm., hand-coloured; mounted and framed. Fine double portrait of two great cartographers, Gerard Mercator and Jodocus Hondius, which appeared as the frontispiece of the Mercator Atlas sive Cosmographicae meditationes published by Hondius' son in Amsterdam in 1623. This handsome portrait shgows the two men each holding a pair of dividers, poised over table globes surrounded by reference books, with a chart of the known world as a backdrop. They are framed by an impressive architectural border topped by globes, slide rules and charts.Gerardus Mercator (1512-1594), scientific cartographer, skilful engraver, commercial publisher, was one of the greatest names in late 16th century cartography. Jodocus Hondius (1563-1611), or Hondius the elder, the 17th century engraver, purchased Mercator's copper map plates in 1606 and began publication of this most famous of early atlases. Very good.

        Comedies Histories & Tragedies, published according to the true originall copies

      Recent full calf leather binding blind tooled in the Cambridge payne panel style - contents show some age toning with some marginal chipping to the text block - light occasional foxing [brown spot marks] some old ink splashes to some pages - some contemporary notes tipped in with a page of manuscript bound in before the frontis -The manuscript text explains that despite when collated this reprint had no less than 348 errors / deviations - they appear to be creditable; chiefly literal errors transposed letters c for e etc - concluding this reprint is therefore 'really good' and has been unjustly depreciated as a consequence of the identified but unqualified 'errors'. Shakespeare wrote around 37 plays, 36 of which are contained in the First Folio. Most of these plays were performed in the Globe, an open-air playhouse in London built on the south bank of the Thames in 1599. As none of Shakespeare's original manuscripts survive (except, possibly, Sir Thomas More, which Shakespeare is believed to have revised a part of) we only know his work from printed editions. It is estimated around 750 First Folios were printed, of which 233 are currently known to survive worldwide.

        Gloria Bellica Serenissimi et Potentissimi Principis Maximilliani .

      Ingolstadii: Ex officina typographica G. Haenlini, 1623. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to [27 x 17.5 cm]. (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.

The work is scarce, with only two copies (Yale, NLM) cited in OCLC and one (Italian Union Catalogue) in KVK.

        Discorsi dell'Honore, della Riputazione, della Gloria, del Buon Concetto... Ne' quali con pensieri la più parte nuovi, ma però tratti dai più ripoti sentimenti dell'Etica, e della Politica, si discorre pienamente di tutte queste materie, Mostrando a Prencipi, a Dame, a Cavalieri, a Gentil'humini, et a gl'altri huomini tutti il vero modo da rendersi honorati, chiari, et illustri.

      Presso Marco Ginami, 1623. Cm. 24,5, pp. (38) 255 (1). Marchio tipografico al frontespizio. Legatura settecentesca in cart. alla rustica con nervi a vista e titoli manoscritti al dorso. Una reintegrazione all'angolo bianco del frontespizio ed una striscetta di carta bianca rimossa all'ultima carta, qualche rada arrossatura, peraltro esemplare genuino e marginoso (in barbe). Di quest'opera esistono due distinte tirature che si differenzano per la presenza della dedica al sig. Gieronimo Pina gentil'huomo di Cataro. Alcuni esemplari presentano quindi 3 carte di dedica fra le preliminari e l'esplicito richiamo al frontespizio, altri non possiedono tale dedica ed il frontespizio porta tutt'altra dicitura in luogo del richiamo alla dedica. Non comune edizione originale di quest'opera dello Zuccolo (1568-1630), scrittore politico faentino detto il 'Picentino'. Cfr. Choix de Olschki,II,1822: "Ouvrage fort rare, important pour l'histoire des moeurs. A la fin de la table se trouvent six lignes en vers slaves".

        Les Provinciales ou Lettres escrittes par Louis de Montalte, A un Provincial de ses amis & aux RR. PP. Jesuites, sur la Morale & la Politique de ces Peres: Traduites en Latin par Guillaume Wendrock, Theologien de Saltzbourg. En Espagnol par le Sr. Gratien Cordero, de Burgos. Et en Italien par le Sr. Cosimo Brunetti, Gentil-Homme Florentin..

      8, 20 Bl., 613 S., OPerg. m. handschriftl. Rückentitel., Das Werk erschien anonym in Bruxelles bei E.-H. Fricx. - Brunet IV, 396. Tchemerzine IX, 70. - Sehr seltene Ausgabe der "Lettres", neben dem französischen Originaltext zum ersten Mal die lateinische, spanische u. italienische Übersetzung in vier Kolumnen enthaltend. -Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) verfasste 1656/57 eine Serie anonymer satirisch-polemischer Broschüren. Diese waren sehr erfolgreich und wurden 1657 in Holland unter dem Titel Provinciales, ou Lettres de Louis de Montalte à un provincial de ses amis et aux R. R. PP. Jésuites sur la morale et la politique de ces pères als Buch gedruckt. Es sind achtzehn Briefe eines fiktiven Paris-Reisenden namens Montalte, von denen die ersten zehn an einen fiktiven Freund in der heimatlichen Provinz gerichtet sind, die nächsten sechs an die Pariser Jesuitenpatres insgesamt und die letzten beiden speziell an den Beichtvater des Königs. In diesen Briefen beschreibt Montalte zunächst in der Rolle eines theologisch unbeschlagenen und naiven jungen Adeligen, wie Jesuiten ihm altklug und herablassend ihre Theologie erklären später, nachdem er quasi seine Lektion gelernt hat, beginnt er mit ihnen zu diskutieren und so scharfsinnig wie witzig ihre Lehren ad absurdum zu führen. Pascal persiflierte und attackierte so die zwar gewissermaßen verbraucherfreundliche, aber tendenziell opportunistische und oft spitzfindige Theologie - die berühmte Kasuistik - der Jesuiten und entlarvte ihren sehr weltlichen Machthunger. Die Lettres provinciales hatten, obwohl sie nach der Nr. 5 verboten wurden, bei Erscheinen der Buchausgabe auf den Index kamen und 1660 sogar vom Henker verbrannt wurden, großen und langandauernden Erfolg und bedeuteten längerfristig den Anfang vom Ende der Allmacht der Jesuiten, zumindest in Frankreich. Wegen ihrer Klarheit und Präzision gelten sie als ein Meisterwerk der französischen Prosa, das ihrem Autor einen Platz unter den Klassikern der französischen Literaturgeschichte verschaffte.

Et hora in questa Terza, & ultima Editione migliorati in più di mille luoghi, che nella stampa di Napoli si leggevano scorrettissimi, & aggiontavi la Fisonomia Naturale di Monsignor Giovanni Ingegneri

      per Pietro Paolo Tozzi, in Padova 1623 - 5 parti in un vol. in-4° (215x145mm), pp. (8), 222; 64; 147, (1); 40; (14); legatura coeva in p. pergamena rigida con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso. 4 frontespizi con vignetta incisa su rame. Ritratti xilografici a p. pag. dell'autore e del Cardinal d'Este. Numerosissime incisioni xilografiche n.t. di raffigurazioni fisiognomiche, molto spesso consistenti in comparazioni fra fisionomie umane e fisionomie animali. Sguardie rinnovate. Qualche leggero alone. Minimi forellini di tarlo al dorso. Ottimo stato. Edizione secentesca padovana del volgarizzamento della Coelestis physognomoniae, uno dei più celebri trattati fisiognomici di ogni tempo, destinato a influenzare in maniera decisiva, insieme col precedente De humana physiognomonia (1586), le teorie di Lavater. Le Coelestis physiognomoniae,stampate a Napoli in sei libri nel 1603 (anche se è certo che vi fu una edizione precedente, sempre a Napoli, nel 1601), possono essere considerate quasi un trattato di astrologia. Infatti, nonostante che il D. dichiari, nella prefazione dell'opera, che il suo scopo è quello di dimostrare l'inutilità di questa scienza, in realtà egli confuta solo apparentemente la pratica astrologica e con il pretesto di offrire una reinterpretazione della materia, vi inserisce una serie di estratti e di citazioni tratte da testi astrologici altrimenti vietati. Secondo il D. il destino dell'uomo non è sottoposto all'influsso dei pianeti, ma è determinato dagli elementi e dagli umori di cui è composto il corpo umano. La previsione astrologica quindi viene effettuata attraverso l'esame delle peculiarità dei corpi, anche se poi sono gli aspetti celesti a rivelare le strutture elementari che influiscono sulla vita umana. (Raffaella Zaccaria in D.B.I., XXXVII). La seconda parte contiene, con autonomo frontespizio e paginazione, la Fisionomia naturale di Giovanni Ingegneri, Vescovo di Capodistria; la terza contiene la Fisonomia di Polemone tradotta in volgare da Francesco Montecuccoli sulla versione latina del di lui fratello, Carlo.
