Konrad, von Scheyern Philosophus
London: Typis Gregorij Hænlin, 1623. Written by Konrad, von Scheyern Philosophus.; Georg Christian Joannis; Stephan Reitperger; Abbot of Scheyern Stephanus; Gregor Hanlin 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.

Pierre de Berulle
London: Antoine Estiene, 1623. He is generally regarded as being the initiator of the so-called French School of Spirituality, and he founded the Congregation of the Oratory in France. He was deeply involved in Church renewal in France in the seventeenth century, and was made a Cardinal in 1627. Bérulle left several written works, the remarkable qualities of which led Pope Urban VIII to call him the Apostolus Verbi incarnati. An inverted copperplate ink inscription has been left to the blank verso of the last page (Volume II). In French. CONDITION Rebound in blind stamped full calf. Externally, a trifle rubbed with some slight loss and tidemarks. Internally, firmly bound, with some age toning and occasional marks, as expected for books of this age. The first Volume contains some tidemarks and evidence of some past worming. The second Volume is bright and clean with only the odd mark. In both Volumes, small amateur repairs have been left, from page 81-120, 1a-16a, 511/2 and the title page. Overall Condition: Very Good.

Wither's hymnbook is the first book of congregational song that focuses exclusively on hymnody rather than psalmody. George Wither was an English poet, pamphleteer, and satirist. His ‘Hymnes and Songs of the Church’ (1622–1623) were aimed to counter exclusive psalmody, represented by the Sternhold and Hopkins Psalter. Orlando Gibbons provided the music for seventeen of them which represents almost the entire body of his sacred music published in his lifetime. They were issued under a patent of King James I ordaining that they should be bound up with every copy of the authorized metrical psalms offered for sale. This patent was opposed, as inconsistent with their privilege to print … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARCLAY, John
John Barclay was an early 17th-century Scottish writer and satirist most known for his work 'Argenis', a political romance. This novel has been compared in many aspects to Philip Sidney's 'Arcadia' and Thomas More's 'Utopia'. It was the final work Barclay finished before his death. 'Argenis' is an historical allegory that tells the story of the French wars on religion under Kings Henry III and IV and English controversies such as the Overbury murder trial. This 1623 Latin edition is bound in 15th-century handwritten manuscript parchment. [Attributes: First Edition]

CALLOT, Jacques (circa 1592-1635)
1623. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. The complete set of 16 etchings including title, sheets 80 x 80 mm and similar, good impressions of the second states (of three or four), with thread margins, occasional small thin spots on the reverse, otherwise in good condition. In four mats. Provenance: Purchased from Hellmuth Wallach, 1957. Lieure contends that the plates were engraved at different dates, but that the majority belongs to Callot's Florentine period (1611-21). He dates thirteen of them (the ones representing the same character twice) to 1617, and notes that the backgrounds added in the second state of those thirteen plates are technically similar to those executed after Callot's return to Nancy. Despite arguing that Callot is named as 'Iacopo' on the frontispiece (a signature, Lieure says, Callot stopped using from 1618, when he started signing as 'Iacomo'), he concludes that the backgrounds as well as two plates (Lieure 404, 405) and the frontispiece were executed after Callot's return in Nancy (1621). Lieure contends that the first thirteen plates of 'Varie Figure' are an early trial announcing the 'Caprices' set (c.1617). Daniel Ternois (see catalogue of the exhibition 'Jacques Callot', Nancy, 1992, No. 285-300) disagrees, noting that the 'Varie Figure' cannot be seen as an experiment technically inferior to 'Caprices': the manner is bold, controlled, and the drawings related to the set are more naturalistic than mannerist, thus contrasting with the figures in 'Caprices'. He therefore concludes that the 'Varie Figure' were executed after Call … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hello and thank you for looking. For your consideration is a beautiful compete set of The National Shakespeare, A Facsimile of the First Folio of 1623, Illustrated by Sir J. Noel Paton in 3 Volumes (Comedies, Tragedies, Histories), London, William MacKenzie. While there is not a copyright for this set, it has been dated to the mid-late 19th century. All 3 leather bound books have been very well maintained. The front and back covers are fully attached and intact, and the binding is tight. Please refer to the numerous pictures which illustrate the wonderful condition of all 3 books. This set came from a wonderful collection of antique books I have recently acquired. I have just begun listing some of the titles from this collection, so feel free to check in with my other listings. I have perfect feedback selling rare and valuable specialty items so please bid with confidence. Thank you. NOTE: I have listed domestic shipping at a flat rate of $25 as eBay is having some glitch that limits flat rate shipping cost of books to $25. As this listing is for 3 very large books, shipping will most likely be a bit more, but will not exceed $40 for domestic. I will send an updated invoice to the winner of this auction based on shipping cost that will not exceed $40. Thank you.

apud Oliuarum de Varennes, viâ Iacobaeâ, sub signo Victoriae, 1623. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. [xx], 960 (iv) ; a¹⁰, A-3O⁸, (-)2. [last blank].Roman letter, some Italic. Woodcut floriated initials, woodcut headpieces with double H's, typographical ornaments. Light age yellowing, a little browning to a few quires, very pale waterstains in lower outer corner towards end. A very good copy in contemporary vellum over thin boards, remains of ties, lacks fly. First edition, published simultaneously at Paris by Nicolas Buon, and a French translation in two volumes, entitled 'Histoire Veritable et Memorable de ce qui c'est passé sous l'exorcisme de trois filles possedées es païs de Flandre' also published by Olivier de Varennes. The latin edition is even rarer than the French, itself very rare. Extremely interesting accounts of the diabolic possession and exorcisms of the Nuns of the Monastery of St. Brigitte in Lille in 1613, conducted by the Dominican inquisitor Sebatien Michaëlis and recounted by his disciple Le Normant. Michaelis was vice-inquisitor in Avignon during the 1580s and was involved in a number of witch trials: a series of cases in 1581 and 1582 led to eighteen women being convicted and burnt. In 1587 he published a work on demons, the 'Pneumalogie ou discours des esprits'. By 1610 he was prior of the Dominican community at Saint-Maxim near Aix-en-Provence where he was later involved in one of the most notorious witch trials, and cases of demonic possession, in the history of France, that of the priest Louis Gaufridi, who was convicted of sorcery, tortured and burnt, on … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Shakespeare
London, 1623. Original Shakespeare single leaf from FIRST FOLIO. The Life of Henry the Fift.This is an original leaf. It is NOT a reproduction, photocopy, poster or later impression. This leaf was salvaged from a woefully derelict copy of the First Folio, printed in London in 1623, and was part of a collection of leaves formed in England in the early 20th century. This leaf was compared to the same leaf in the Brandeis copy to verify accuracy of description. This leaf is leaf 81/82. All the text is complete. There is some folding as seen in the pictures but no loss of text. A bit of fingerstaining appears in the margin. Edges are frayed with some edge-browning as seen in the illustrations. There is some mild soiling, mostly from ingrained dust. One corner has a short tear as illustrated. This leaf is entirely original as found in the collection and has not been restored or mucked with. The leaf measures about 8 x 12 1/2 inches. This leaf has the crown watermark.There are but 232 known copies of the First Folio remaining in the world from a printing of about 750-1000 copies. Many are incomplete. This leaf is therefore very rare and it is unlikely to appear elsewhere in any condition. I have been an antiquarian book dealer since about 1975 and although I have had material (including complete plays) from the Fourth Folio I have never, until now, had any material from the First Folio or the Second Folio.

Bel frontespizio con titolo in ricca cornice con vignette di cinque Concilii (compreso quello di Trento) di quattro papi (Sisto IV, Sisto V, Nicola IV, Alessandro V) sormontati da Cristo che consegna a Pietro le chiavi del Regno. Legatura coeva tutta pergamena, titolo calligrafato al dorso a 7 nervi, danno da tarli, che non sono arrivati alle carte, alla cuffia superiore e di circa 5 centimetri anche alla cerniera anteriore; ingiallimento con qualche brunitura, ma buon esemplare di quest’opera in edizione originale non segnalata in alcuna biblioteca italiana. Si tratta, probabilmente, della sintesi dell’altra opera (Summa Conciliorum Omnium) basata sugli Annali del Baronio e uscita fra il 1662 e 1623. Il ritratto in antiporta inciso dall’Audran raffigura Carlo di Neufeuille.

Barcelona, en la emprenta de Lorenzo Deu, 1623. 4º (20 x 15 cm). 6 h. inc. port. grabada al cobre, 184 h. fols., 4 h. de tabla. Plena piel, greca dorada en ambos planos, lomo con falsos nervios, hierros dorados y doble tejuelo: moncada. catalanes ragoneses contra turcos y griegos. Primera edición, muy rara en mercado, de esta obra clásica de la historiografía catalana. Basada en la Crónica de Muntaner, relata las aventuras de los almogávares comandados por Roger de Flor, enviados por los Reyes de Aragón para proteger al imperio griego de Bizancio, desde su salida de Sicilia en 1302 hasta la conquista del ducado de Atenas en 1311, que mantendrán durante varias generaciones. Moncada se documentó a fondo, no sólo remitiéndose a la crónica de Ramón Muntaner, protagonista de los acontecimientos, sino que también utilizó todas las fuentes de información de que disponía en la época, los Anales de la Corona de Aragón de Zurita, los textos de autores griegos como Pachimerio, Nicéforo Gregoras; manteniéndo ecuanimidad y criticando en ocasiones los excesos de los almogávares, justificandolos siempre por los motivos que les empujaron a ello, y mostrando siempre admiración por su valor y destreza. Mancha de grasa en la esquina inferior derecha de portada, alguans manchas de oxidación generalizadas. Palau, 175668; Salvá, 3063: “Primera edición, de cuya rareza se habla en la reimpresión hecha en Madrid en 1805.

RODRIGUEZ DE SAA Y MENEZES, Juan.
Goldsmith, BMC STC Spanish & Portuguese R-163; Lach & Van Kley III, p. 951-952; Palau 274944. Very rare first and only edition of a first-hand account of the rebellion of the Sinhalese natives, supported by the Dutch, against the Portuguese government of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), concentrating on the years 1623 to 1630, when the author's father was governor of the island. The main text in Spanish, comprising a prologue and sixteen chapters, begins with a general description of the island, its emperors before the arrival of the Portuguese in 1505, the customs of the natives, and the Portuguese government. These are followed by an account of the author's father, Constantino de Saa y Noroña (1586-1630), his taking office as governor and captain general, his principles of government and his reforms, his victories and conquests, and his achievements generally. Finally comes the rebellion itself, led by the King of Kandy, and its immediate aftermath, including the death of De Saa. Although the Dutch came to Ceylon in 1602 and encouraged disgruntled natives to fight against the Portuguese twenty years before De Saa took office, it was largely after his defeat and death in 1630 that the Dutch gained the upper hand in the struggle for control of Ceylon. It was only in 1658, however, that they succeeded in ousting the Portuguese and bringing the island under Dutch control.With the front board partially detached from the bookblock, otherwise in very good condition. An essential primary source on the native rebellion in Ceylon.

London 'Printed by Isaac Iaggard and Ed. Blount. ' facsimile; E. and J. Wright c. 1807. Folio, (xviii) 993pp., engraved pictorial title-page, slight horizontal crease to title, minor spotting and marks to endpapers and dedication, otherwise very good, contemporary calf, beautifully gilt-panelled to boards, gilt devices to spine panels, all edges gilt, a lovely copy. The original First Folio, of which this is a copy, was the first collected edition of William Shakespeare's plays, collated and published in 1623, seven years after his death. 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. Of the 36 plays in the First Folio, 17 were printed in Shakespeare's lifetime in various good and bad smaller quarto editions, one was printed after his death and 18 had not yet been printed at all. It is this fact that makes the First Folio so important; without it, 18 of Shakespeare's plays, including Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure, Macbeth, Julius Caesar and The Tempest, might never have survived.

PROCOPIO di Cesarea
In 4to (32x22cm); pp. (5), XXIII, 135, (1), 142, (10). Rilegatura coeva in pergamena, con quattro nervi sul dorso e titolo in tassello; danno alla cuffia superiore e, più lieve, alla parte inferiore, con tagli puntinati. Frontespizio in doppio colore, con bella marca tipografica incisa con sole raggiante con motto Flammis ipse suis; testatine, capilettera e figure incise; testo su due colonne in greco con traduzione latina a fianco. Carta un poco arrossata; qualche leggera macchia sulle pagine finali; piccolo lavoro di tarlo sul margine interno che non tocca il testo da pagina 29 a pagina 44; nel complesso buon esemplare. L’Arcana Historia è opera piuttosto discussa attribuita a Procopio di Cesarea, famoso storico di corte dell’imperatore Giustiniano. Autore di un'importante opera storiografica in otto libri, la Storia delle guerre, e di un trattato sugli edifici fatti costruire da Giustiniano a lui si deve anche questo libello, rimasto incompiuto, pubblicato nel 1623 dall'Alamanni. L’autenticità fu subito messa in discussione già alla sua prima apparizione in virtù del sorprendente voltafaccia che Procopio riserva a Giustiniano, ampiamente lodato nella Storia delle guerre, coprendo d’infamia lui e la sua corte. Ora prevale l'opinione che l'opera sia veramente di Procopio e che si debba considerare come un complemento della Storia delle guerre, che riporta dicerie e pettegolezzi sulla vita privata di Giustiniano senza però annullare la sua grandezza.
