      Zanobi Pignoni, 1624. Three volumes, 4to, contemporary flexible vellum, (8), 142, (2), 130, (2), 126, (6) pp. + (2), 143, (1), 143, (1 blank), 130, (22) pp. + (12), 216, (8) pp. The first part is known in two different issues, our copy combines the two issues. On the front fly - leaf of the third volume is a full - page drawing showing an emblem with the initial PLC. Some browning, light dampstains, the front cover of a volume has slightly shrank, otherwise a very good, genuine copy. RARE FIRST EDITIONS. Bronzini was made cardinal by Pope Paul V in 1615. He then moved to Florence, where he conceived the idea of writing an ambitious work in praise of women. Della dignità et nobiltà delle donne should have originally comprised 24 parts (4 weeks of 6 days each), but the project was never completed. The first six days of the first week were written in 1618 and published between 1622 and 1625, while the first two days of the second week were printed respectively in 1628 and in 1632. Although already approved by the ecclesiastical authorities, the first book was condemned in 1622 "donec corrigatur" (cf. Index libror. prohib., Rome, 1664, p. 38). It is presumable that the condemnation refers to a previous edition, now lost, or that the edition was corrected while still under the presses. The work is written in the form of a dialogue. The scene is set in the Medici's garden in Rome during a hot summer. The interlocutors are six: three women, outstanding for their beauty, virtue and nobility (Margherita from Rome, Vittoria from Mantua, Leonora from Florence) and three men (the Prince of Tuscany, Tolomei from Ferrara, an opponent of women, Onorio, i.e. the author himself as defender of women) (cf. Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, XIV, 1972, pp. 463 - 64, M. Capucci). All parts of Bronzini's work are very rare. We are able to offer here the first three volumes. The fourth one, Della virtù e valore delle donne illustri dialogo di Christofano Bronzini d'Ancona. Diviso in quattro settimane, e ciascheduna di esse in sei giornate. settimana seconda, giornata settima, was issued in 1632 by Zanobi Pignoni. Catalogue of Seventeenth Century Italian Books in the British Library, London 1988, p. 155, G. B. Passano, I novellieri italiani in prosa, Turin, 1878, I, pp. 151 - 53, Catalogo della Libreria Capponi, Rome, 1747, p. 85.

        Il martirio di San Bartolomeo

      1624. Acquaforte e bulino, 1624, firmato e datato in lastra in basso. Esemplare nel probabile secondo stato. Meravigliosa prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "cerchio con monti e gallo", rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La scena rappresenta il martirio a cui fu sottoposto San Bartolomeo, in Armenia. Secondo i fatti narrati da Abdia Babilonico, avendo Bartolomeo convertito alla fede cristiana il re Polimio e la sua sposa, l'invidia dei sacerdoti locali fu tale che incitando Astiage, fratello del re, fu decretato per lui il raccapricciante martirio di essere scorticato vivo dalla testa ai piedi, per essersi rifiutato di adorare le divinità pagane. Ne La leggenda aurea di Jacopo da Varagine, si narra anche che durante il tentativo di conversione, una delle statue raffiguranti queste divinità, Baldach, cadde al suolo frantumandosi. Nell'incisione è raffigurata nell'angolo inferiore sinistro. In questa incisione, il santo è rappresentato secondo l'iconografia più diffusa nel '600: il santo, legato ad un albero, viene scorticato, mentre sulla destra si nota una folla accorsa. L'opera è dedicata a Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia (1588 - 1624), nipote di Filippo III re di Spagna e vicerè di Sicilia nel 1620, da cui Ribera sperava di ottenere un appoggio, che però morì proprio nel 1624. Il martirio di San Bartolomeo, con varianti rispetto all'incisione, era stato dipinto su tela qualche anno prima, durante la prima fase del soggiorno napoletano dell'artista, tra il 1616 e il 1620, poi tradotta in incisione nel 1624 e ancora, tra il 1628 - 30, rappresentato, con altre varianti, in un altro dipinto oggi nella Galleria Palatina di Palazzo Pitti. Il soggetto si iscrive nella serie dedicata ai santi martiri che Ribera eseguì tra il 1620 e il 1635. Etching with engraving, signed and dated at lower center. Example of the second state. A magnific impression, rich in tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with "circle with mounts and cock" watermark, trimmed to the borderline, very good conditions. The scene depicts the martyrdom to which he was subjected St. Bartholomew in Armenia. According to the facts narrated by Obadiah Babylonian , having Bartholomew converted to the Christian faith Polimio the king and his bride , the envy of local priests was such that inciting Astyages , the king's brother , was decreed to him the gruesome martyrdom by being flayed alive head to foot, for refusing to worship the pagan gods. In The Golden Legend by Jacobus de Varagine, it is said that during the conversion attempt , one of the statues of these deities, Baldach , fell to the ground and shattered. In etching is shown in the lower left. In this engraving , the saint is represented according to the iconography more widespread in the '600: tied to a tree, is flayed, while on the right there is a crowd gathered . The work is dedicated to Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy (1588 - 1624), grandson of Philip III, King of Spain and Viceroy of Sicily in 1620, from which he hoped to obtain support Ribera, who died right in 1624. The Martyrdom of St. Bartholomew, with variations on the incision had been painted on canvas a few years before, during the first phase of the artist's stay in Naples , between 1616 and 1620, then translated into engraving in 1624 and again between the 1628 - 30 represented , with other variants, in another painting today in the Galleria Palatina in Palazzo Pitti. The subject fits into the series dedicated to the martyrs who Ribera executed between 1620 and 1635 . Great impression. Bartsch, XX, 6; Salamon, Jusepe de Ribera lo Spagnoletto, n. 14. 238 316

        The Anatomy of Melancholy: what it is.

      Oxford: by John Lichfield and James Short, for Henry Cripps,, 1624. With all the kindes, causes, symptomes, prognosticks, and severall cures of it. In three maine partitions, with their severall Sections, Members, and Subsections. Philosophically, medicinally, historically opened and cut up, by Democritus Junior. With a Satyricall Preface, conducing to the following Discourse. The second Edition, corrected and augmented by the Author. Folio (275 x 170 mm). Contemporary calf skilfully rebacked with the original spine laid down (corners refurbished), spine with five raised bands, simple blind ruling, sides with simple three-line blind rules, red speckled egdes, endleaves renewed to style. Housed in a linen-lined green cloth solander box. Neat booklabel (printed in gold on a blue ground, possibly German) of "RLU". Skilful repair at head of leaf Kk, three or four instances of underling or marginal notes in a nineteenth century hand. A very good copy, crisp and clean. Second edition, the first in folio format, succeeding the first, small quarto, edition of 1621. Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy was "one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. All the learning of the age as well as its humour ? and its pedantry ? are there. It has something in common with Brant's Ship of Fools, Erasmus's Praise of Folly, and More's Utopia, with Rabelais and Montaigne and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion" (PMM 120). Burton's work is a landmark text rising out of "the new curiosity in the Renaissance about the workings of the human mind" (ODNB), and as such constitutes an important work of proto-psychology. Furthermore, Burton's Anatomy may be considered more particularly as a situated encyclopaedia of the 17th-century mind, since, through his encyclopaedic reading for sources and examples (which he conducted throughout his continual revisions of the work, swelling the text from 353,369 words in the first edition to 516,384 in the sixth edition), Burton "was able to rival the great encyclopaedist scholars of Europe, and there were not many Englishmen of his time who could do that" (ODNB). Pforzheimer notes that "As the author continued to make augmentations and a few corrections to each edition published in his lifetime ? all early editions are of interest textually".

De statu ecclesiastico, initio & progressureligionis Christianæ & c. IV. De rebus privatis, literatura,æconomia, &c. Two volumes in one. Francfurt a. Main, Joh. David Zunner, 1681 & 1691.

      Folio. Lvs (168); pp. (vi), 30, 632. With titles printed in red and black, three engraved portraits, one engraved folding map, 17 engraved plates (of which many folding, one neatly restored on verso) and two folding tables. Contemporary vellum, title in manuscript on spine, red edges. Old inscriptions on front paste down. First edition. A handsome copy of this monumental work on Ethiopia dealing with its history, inhabitants, natural history, language and literature. Job Ludolph (1624-1704), a German born orientalist and linguist, was the founder of Ethiopian studies in Europe and compiled the first dictionaries and grammars of the Amharic language. His historical work is mainly based on Jesuit sources but also on first hand information supplied by an Ethiopian monk, Abba Gregory, whom he met in Rome. The beautiful plates depict different exotic animals, and a few of people. The large map by Christian Ludolph (issued in 1683) is the first published to show the true source of the Blue Nile, at lake Tana. It was a landmark in the cartography of the region and for a long time the mapmakers continued to show the source as the two ptolematic lakes Zaire and Zaflan near the equator. Two appendixes were published in 1691 and 1694 respectively (not present here). Brunet iii, 1224. Eberet 12480. Gay 2658. Provenance: From the Celsing library at Biby in Sweden. In the middle of the 17th century Ludolph spent a year in Sweden during which time he met with learned men at Queen Christina's court. Throughout his life he stayed in contact with Swedish scholars and nobility, and after his death his family had correspondence with members of the Celsing family

Marcel de Boulene, small 8vo, approximately 165 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, engraved title page with vignettes of chemical apparatus and 4 small portraits of Hermes Trismegistus, Paracelsus, Raimon Lull and Geber, with a cabalistic circle at the top, 2 woodcut illustrations in the text, woodcut headpieces and initials, pages: (8), 223 - Preface Admonitoire, (2), 210 - Royalle Chymie, (57) - Table, (4), 119 - Traicte des Signatures, (31) - Table, lacks final blank (Kkk4), bound in antique full calf, raised bands, gilt decoration in compartments and gilt lettering to spine, edges stained red. Binding worn, spine stuck down with a vertical crease due to opening, shelf wear to edges with cardboard showing at corners and on top and bottom edges, slight loss of leather at head of spine, amateur repair to tail of spine, upper hinge starting to crack at head and tail, lower hinge starting at head, small crack also in top compartment, engraved title page trimmed losing all margins except the lower, tiny grazed patch to edge of 1 portrait due to adhesion, margins slightly trimmed, sometimes affecting running title with loss, just shaving a few side notes mostly without loss of legibility, light ink stroke in 3 margins, occasional small light stains and light soiling mostly in the Chymie section, all easily legible, tiny hole in 1 text page with loss of 1 letter, tiny dark spot to a few lower margins, a few pages lightly age - browned, small worm track in lower margin of Preface from page 111 - 123, 2 small tracks in fore - edge margin of Chymie from page 149 - 177, all neatly repaired, affecting 1 side note, still easily legible, a little ink scribble in the margin of 1 page of the final Table, final page dusty otherwise a good copy. Oswald Croll [c. 1560 - 1609] was a professor of medicine and alchemy at the University of Marburg in Hesse, Germany. A strong proponent of alchemy and of using chemistry in medicine, he attempted to influence thinkers of his day towards viewing chemistry and alchemy as two separate fields. He published one volume in 1609, the year of his death, containing two books "Basilica Chymica" (La Royalle Chymie) and "De signatura rerum" (Traicte des Signatures) plus a long preface in which he expounds the ideas of Paracelsus to whom he was devoted. The Royalle Chymie is a comprehensive summary of his researches, methods of preparation, and studies into chemical medicine or iatrochemistry. He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Traicte des Signatures covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.

        [in Greek, transliterated as] He Kaine Diatheke. [then in roman] Novum testamentum. Ex regiis aliisque optimis editionibus cum cura expressum.

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Ex officina Elzeviriana 12mo (10.5 cm, 4.125"). [6] ff., 510 pp. (of 863, lacking second part).. 1624 First Elzevir edition, and editio recepta of Beza's text, agreeing mostly with his octavo edition of 1565. "Besides being beautifully printed and extremely scarce, [this edition] 'deserves particularly to be noticed, because the text of the Greek Testament . . . acquired in this a consistency'" (Dibdin). Greek New Testaments were a staple of the renowned Elzevir family of printers, and this is => the first in that important line of texts; six more genuine Elzevir Greek Testaments were printed between 1633 and 1678. The text of this teeny tome is => entirely in Greek, except for Latin chapter headings in the table of contents, with one woodcut initial at the beginning and verse numbers in the inner margin of each page. Three variations of the title-page exist: two in combinations of red and black, and one in all black, as here, featuring the printer's woodcut device of a man picking grapes from a vine on a tree and the motto "Non solus." This copy offers the complete text for Matthew–Acts, but lacks Romans–Revelations, which is sometimes found bound separately. Recent dark green morocco tooled in the Cambridge style, edges speckled red. Lacking a blank leaf and second part of text with its part-title, as above, pp. 515–863; trimmed close grazing many headlines. Dust-soiling and small stains on title-page; fore-edges through p. 23 with small ink stain on a few leaves causing small embrittlement and chipping of edge of margin not affecting text; an insignificant natural hole in text of one leaf with a larger internal hole from a natural paper flaw in another leaf diminishing on next two, affecting portions of three to five lines. Very small bit of paper torn away at edge of another leaf affecting a few letters of text only; minute wormhole at outer edge of 30 leaves, barely visible. Important and => pocket portable!

        Institutiones linguae Arabicae. Ex diversis Arabum monumentis collectae, & ad quammaximam fieri potuit brevitatem, atque oridinem revocatae.

      Rome, Stefano Paulini, 1624. - 8vo. (16), 256 pp. Contemp. limp vellum. Traces of ties. Rare, early introduction to and grammar the Arabic language: a compilation based on Arab sources by the Syrian Jesuit Metoscita. "The work again contains laudatory poems in four languages by Donatus. It is dedicated by the publisher Paulinus to Cardinal Francesco Barberini, who as Curator of the Sacra Congregatio had ordered its publication. Paulinus had already recently published two other Arabic grammars in Rome, a large one by Martelotti (1620) and a small one by Scialac (1622). The author, Petrus Al-Matusi, was one of the first pupils of the Maronite College in Rome [.] On p. 227 of the grammar we find one of the first examples of a classical Arabic poem quoted and translated [.] The work is excellently printed with the 16pt Arabic types of Savary de Brèves. At the end a grammatical analysis of Psalm 34 is given following the example of Bellarmino's Hebrew grammar" (Smitskamp). "After the demise of the Medici Oriental Press, Arabic printing in Rome was revived by the French scholar-diplomat François Savary de Brèves, who commissioned the design and production of an Arabic fount of an outstanding elegance and beauty. Much has been written on this type-face, which was evidently based directly on Arab or Turkish specimens of calligraphy acquired by Savary while serving in the Ottoman Empire: the punch-cutting, however, was probably executed in Rome [.] This celebrated type-face, which later passed to the Imprimerie Royale, was the mainstay of Arabic typography in France until the late 19th century [.] It likewise influenced the Arabic founts of the Press od the Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide, which had a monopoly of Arabic printing in Rome from 1622 onwards, and at first employed Paulin, the former associate of both Raimondi and Savary de Brèves" (Roper, p. 144-146). - Slight browning and brownstaining throughout due to paper; 18th or early 19th century marginalia and notes on flyleaves; ownership "J. Venturi" to title page. Fück 77. Schnurrer 59. Smitskamp, PO 190. De Backer/Sommervogel V, 1028. Bibliothèque de Silvestre de Sacy II, 2772 (lacking 1 leaf). Not in Vater/Jülg. Cf. G.

Contemporary calf, rebacked, bookplate of Nicholas Wall Q.C. First edition of this rare text on codes and secret writing. Printed the year after the First Folio the engraved title is of particular interest. It purports to attribute the authorship of Shakespeare's plays to Sir Francis Bacon. One panel supposedly depicts Bacon handing a text to Shakespeare (a man holding a spear), while another supposedly depicts Augustus holding the Cap of Maintenance over the head of Bacon, who is writing on a folio-sized piece of paper. “OUVRAGE FORT RARE, DE LA PLUS GRANDE IMPORTANCE (Bibliotheca Esoterica). The Cryptomenytices extends Johannes Trithemius' Steganographia and is considered indispensible in the study of encrypted correspondence from the Renaissance to the 19th century. Not only does it cover many aspects of codes and cryptography, but its engraved title page, according to Sir Edwin Dunning-Lawrence, provided the first clue of Bacon's authorship of Shakespeare's plays in the form of pictorial puns, a theory expanded in his pamphlet Bacon is Shakespeare (London: 1914).

Per Cox on page 268, he states: "The authorship of this Relation has been attributed to Sir Dudley Digges, who had been sent to Holland in 1620 to endeavor to effect a settlement of the points in dispute between the English East India Company & the Dutch." * *** NOTE ABOUT THE [AUTHOR] : "Sir Dudley Digges, English politician, born in 1583; died in 1639. He was the son of Sir Thomas Digges, the celebrated geometer, was ambassador to Russia in 1618, and in 1621 was elected to parliament, where he was active in the impeachment of the Duke of Buckingham. He was at one time imprisoned in the Fleet by Charles I, whom he had offended, but was released on apologizing to the king, and in 1630 was appointed master of the rolls. He was a friend of Henry Hudson, and in 1610 was one of those who fitted out that explorer for his last voyage." Extracted from Virtual American Biographies. * Sir Dudley, a member of the gentry, was the son of Sir Thomas Digges M.P., the celebrated geometer, and Anne St. Leger [1555-1636] of a branch of the Neville family. * Sir Digges was outraged at the Dutch by the Amboyna massacre and therefore made it his business to issue these tracts and set the record straight. In an effort to also support the English East-India Company in Southeast Asia, he authored this work anonymously by placing at the bottom of the title page: "Publifhed by Avuthoritie" an allusion to himself. * Per Cox p. 268, relating to THE MASSACRE AT AMBOYNA: "The massacre of the English on trumped-up charges by the Dutch authorities at Amboyna was typical of the ruthlessness of the Dutch East India Company when it deemed its monopoly of the Archipelago was encroached on. The events called forth many tracts. In Osborne are six such pamphlets. Dryden based a play upon the incident. 1673 DRYDEN, JOHN. AMBOYNA: A Tragedy as it is enacted at the Theatre Royale, London." [End Cox citation] * Quoted from Wikipedia: "The Dutch and English enclaves at Amboyna. 1655 engraving. The Amboyna massacre occurred because of the intense rivalry between the East India companies of England and Holland in the spice trade. The Dutch East India Company (VOC) established a trading post at Amboyna (Ambon Island) in the Molucca Islands in 1609 by driving out the previously established Portuguese factors. The British East India Company established a factory (trading station) nearby at Cambello in 1615. * In 1619 the British and Dutch signed a Treaty of Defense which allowed England to have one-third of the spice trade to two-thirds for the Dutch. However, Dutch officials in the East Indies gave no heed to this peace pact and armed conflict continued. Eventually, the British attacked the Dutch at Batavia and drove them out. * Thereupon, the Dutch at Amboyna suspected that the British were about to attack them and assassinated their governor. The Dutch raided and over came the neighboring British East Indian Company factory in 1623. They tortured the surviving ten British factors, nine Japanese mercenary soldiers (samurai) and one Portuguese with fire and water, eventually using gunpowder charges to blow off their arms and legs. Any who survived the brutal torture were killed. * The suffering of the captives became a national cause in England, and compensation was eventually paid to the descendants of the victims. The strife between the two nations abated completely only after the Dutch leader William of Orange became king of England in 1689. * After the Amboyna Massacre, the British reduced their interest in the East Indies and focused their attention on the continent of Asia, specifically the Indian Sub-Continent. In 1796 and 1810 British forces captured Amboyna, but returned the colony to the Dutch upon cessation of hostilities." [End of citation Wikipedia] * BINDING: Bound in England by "Riviere & Son" per the inside cover. A very lovely mottled calf binding, raised bands, gold decorations and rules, red label, internal gilt rules & inner dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled end papers, * ILLUSTRATIONS: The frontis is a very nice full-page woodcut of the sad and most cruel torture of an English East-India Companie employee or sailor at the hands of two Dutchmen. There is a beautiful engraved armorial logo on the verso of the title paged and some of that is visible from the title page. The title page has a small collector's seal with "B" surrounded by two branches in the lower left corner. With 4 other engraved armorial head-pieces in the text as part of each essay. * CONDITION; This is a lovely copy, the most trivial wear to the corners and spine. There is some evidence of tiny old worm holes in the gutter of the inside of the pages & at the top and bottom areas, a bit of this also continued to the front cover, but again exceptionally minor. There is some bleed through of the armorial logo on the verso of the title page. Also on the verso of the title page and the TO THE READER page are some old Chinese seals which have had paper covering them affixed. We are over critical in our description of defects to a defect ! Its our philosophy to over describing rather than under describe. By and large a very beautiful, solid and clean copy of the book with the most trivial defects. In collector's condition, nicely polished. * For a related work, see John Beaumont: DUTCH ALLIANCES: or, a Plain Proof of their Observance of Treaties....London 1712, or inquire as we may have this title in stock. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Cited in: * E.

        The anatomy of melancholy. 2nd (first folio) ed.

      Oxford: John Lichfield & James Short for Henry Cripps, 1624. ?The Greatest Medical Treatise Written by a Layman? Burton, Robert (1577-1640). The anatomy of melancholy, what it is . . . the second edition, corrected and augmented by the author. Folio. [4], 64, [4], 188, [4], 189-332, [2], 333-557 [i.e., 567], [7]pp. Oxford: John Lichfield and James Short for Henry Cripps, 1624. 284 x 180 mm. 19th century mottled calf gilt, rebacked preserving original spine, light edgewear. Minor spotting and staining, a few marginal tears, small ink-stain on one leaf, a few small wormholes in upper margin of last few leaves, but very good. Early owner?s signature (?Edward Parish?) on title. First Folio Edition (second overall) of the book that William Osler called ?the greatest medical treatise written by a layman.? With a keen eye for contradiction and a perverse relish for exposing it, Burton virtually destroyed the dominant humoral psychology by showing its inability to effectively define or cure the mental illness of melancholia, a term that encompasses what we now call clinical depression. Burton, who himself suffered from melancholia, drew upon nearly every science of his day (including psychology, physiology, astronomy, meteorology and even demonology) in his attempts to explicate the disease. The work is a curious blend of psychiatric encyclopedia (the first of its kind, citing nearly 500 medical authors) and literary tour-de-force. It was one of the most popular books of the 17th century, going through five revised editions in Burton?s lifetime. Jordan-Smith, Bibliographia Burtoniana, 2. Printing and the Mind of Man 120 (first ed.). Hunter & Macalpine, pp. 94-98.
