Trostius, Martin.
Officina Cotheniana, 1623. Syriac in the classical Edessene literary form is still the sacred language of several Eastern Churches and is the language of this lexicon. The dialect in ancient times was spoken in the north of Syria and in Upper Mesopotamia around Edessa. Trost (1588-1636), a professor of theology at Wittenberg, compiled this dictionary and issued it two years after publishing his much-praised edition of the Syriac New Testament with an accompanying Latin translation; the Lexicon was likewise lauded, primarily for its completeness. This and Trost's Syriac New Testament are among the earliest books printed in Cöthen, Upper Saxony. => This is the sole edition of the dictionary and it is uncommon in commerce.

MAXIMILIAN I OF BAVARIA] / [THIRTY YEARS WAR] / STENGEL, Georg.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fourteenth collected edition.

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.

Colluraffi Antonino
Andrea Muschio, 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 generiche virtù morali, la conoscenza delle lingue, lo studio della matematica e delle leggi e la conoscenza degli ordini della disciplina militare. Indica egli e inoltre quali debbano essere i beni, le ricchezze, le facoltà e l'esteriorità che si confanno alle occorrenze pubbliche e private dei nobili, nonché i vizi deteriori, tra i quali i giochi, che il sangue blu deve sempre fuggire. Riguardo all'esercizio della politica, egli raccomanda soprattutto l'eloquenza, illustrandone i precetti, ricordando che "per avere testa da Repubblica, bisogna avere stomaco da struzzo".

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.

Vidas, Elijah ben Moses de, 16th cent.; Mili, Yehi'el (Yechiel), 17th cent.
1623. FIRST EDITION. Title within typographic border. Some stains. Vinograd, Mantua 214.Lacks three leaves: The first leaf after the title page, which is the beginning of the Printer's Introduction. A photocopy of it is laid in. The other two leaves (Bet and Gimel) have been replaced by a centuries old handwritten version. Photocopies of these two leaves are laid in here as well. The title page has an owner's signature in Hebrew: Avraham Piscarolo. After the last leaf of the book proper, is an added three-leaf manuscript tfilat haderekh. The version that appears here is different from the one we commonly use nowadays. It starts with the phrase whose approximate translation is: This city is nearby and small and I will flee there. The front and back free endpapers have old inscriptions. Newly bound in attractive brown leather, gilt lettering on spine. The Mellis were a family of rabbinic scholars, whose name derives from the village of Melli in the province of Mantua. Yechiel Melli served as rabbi of Mantua in the seventeenth century. Besides the present work, he also authored a commentary to the Pentateuch entitled Sepher ha-Nimukim (Hirschfeld, Cat. Montefiore, Number 479-11). It is thought that in addition to his rabbinic and literary activities, Melli also engaged in banking. Tapuchei Zahav enjoyed wide popularity in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, going through several editions. This first edition was published by the author's son-in-law David ben Moses Portaleone. See S. Simonsohn, History of the Jews in the Duchy of Mantua, pages 30, 619, 629, 720; Jewish Enc … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOBSON, Richard
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 Gamb … [Click Below for Full Description]

CRILLON (Thomas de Berton de)]
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.

S.l, S.e., (1623), 22x34. Splendide reliure début XXème en plein maroquin rouge par Jirasko-Bovand. Dos lisse, orné de motifs dorés et portant l'auteur en lettres dorées. Très élégants encadrements des plats, avec fers. Roulette intérieure dorée. Dans un emboîtage toilé rouge. Planches numérotées jusqu'à 16 (manque la planche "Une paysanne avec un panier sur sa tête"). Brunet (I, 1490) parle de 17 planches mais nous n'avons pas trouvé la trace de la 17ème dans aucun autre exemplaire, de plus, Brunet lui-même indique une numérotation de 1 à 16. Il s'agit du troisième état, reconnaissable à la numérotation des planches. Ce n'est pas une copie (le point après Callot est présent !). La page comportant la gravure de titre a été habilement restaurée (la gravure n'était pas touchée, juste les bords du papier). Les gravures sont splendides, le trait bien net. Étonnant ensemble, fort rare. Nous vous envoyons volontiers plus d'information et de photographies sur simple demande. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

GEORGES, Pierre.
Berthoud, Histoire de la mesure du temps 2, p. 348; Houzeau & Lancaster 11491; Tardy, Bibl. mesure du temps, p. 108. First edition of a curious and extensively illustrated work on what the author calls a "horloge magnetique", a horizontal sundial with a rotating magnetic needle. He makes great (and dubious) claims for his invention: it can be used day or night, even when the sky is overcast, as long as one can make out the sun, moon or a known star. The magnetic needle did no doubt help one set it up at any location, as he claimed.The title-page notes that Pierre Georges is Chanoine régulier at the Congrégation de Notre-Sauveur, established by the archbishop of Toul in 1623 under Jesuit influence, and it also gives the Jesuit "IHS" with cross. Given that Jesuit association, the manuscript fragment used for the binding is particularly interesting, for it contains a text known from the Acta sanctorum (which is arranged by the Saints' feast days, in this case 25 July). With an early 19th-century 2-page note on a free endleaf with information about Georges, the dedicatee François Grimaldi and the book. In good condition.

Der Verfasser (Udine 1582 - 1626 Brescia), ein in Graz und Padua ausgebildeter Jesuit und Jurist, machte sich die Mühe, die Originalschauplätze des Krieges zu besichtigen, was viel zu seiner unparteiischen Schilderung der Ereignisse beitrug - wofür er vonseiten der venez. u. friaul.
