        Historia particolare delle cose passate tra'l sommo pontefice Paolo V e la serenessima Repubblica di Venetia gl'anni MDCV, MDCVI, MDVVII di Pietro Sarpi divisa in sette libri

      s.e., Lione (ma Venezia) 1624 - In 8, pp. (2b) + (2) + 328. Ex libris al controp. ant. Annotazioni manoscritte alla prima carta di sguardia e firmaÂal fr.ÂPiccolo restauro con reintegro di carta al fr. Piccolissima gora all'ang. est. sup. delle prime 40 cc. Esemplare rifilato ai margg. Legatura in p. pg. ottocentesca. Edizione con falso luogo di stampa (Lione) ma stampata a VeneziaÂda Pinelli, che si inserisce nell'elenco degli scritti sarpiani o a lui attribuibili editi tra il 1619 e il 1625 e pubblicati, appunto, con falso luogo di stampa per ragioni di ordine politico e di contrasto fra la Repubblica di Venezia e lo Stato pontificio a seguito della vertenza dell'Interdetto scoppiata nel 1606 a causa dell'arresto a Venezia di dueÂpreti cattolici accusati di reati comuni.ÂA scatenare la reazione del Papato fu il fatto che le autorita' veneziane si rifiutassero di riconoscere che il clero costituiva un corpo a se', con un suo diritto e i suoi tribunali, e cheÂnon era quindi sotto la giurisdizione degli Stati. Paolo V minaccio' di porre l'interdetto sulla citta', ossia di colpirla con una sorta di scomunica collettiva che avrebbe posto Venezia al di fuori della Chiesa, imponendo ogni forma di amministrazione dei sacramenti:Âl'ultimatum papale fu respinto ed il papa mise in atto quanto aveva minacciato. Seguirono mesi caratterizzati da grande tensione e da un conflitto dottrinale, combattuto a colpi diÂpamphlet. Nella 'battaglia di scritture' che infurio' tra Roma e Venezia, il governo veneziano pote' valersi di un 'consigliere giuridico' d'eccezione, il frate Paolo Sarpi, uomo di cultura e grande storico della Chiesa: lucido e brillante polemista, fu lui a ribattere punto per punto alla pretese romane, accusando il Papato di rompere con la tradizione per imporre un inaudito potere pontificio sulla vita cristiana. Quest'operaÂfu pubblicataÂcon ogni probabilita'Âper contrastare l'uscita nello stesso anno di un volume scritto dal frate polacco Abraham Bzowski dal titolo Paulus V Borghesius. Melzi, II, p. 7 (per il nome Paolo, invece di Pietro, Sarpi). Rossetti, 9185. ITA

His learnedness was mixed with a desire to upset the system; consequently, he became a Protestant and attacked the Council of Trent which led to his imprisonment in Paris. The Printer's device sweeping through history is accompanied with the Latin phrase HANC ACIEM SOLA RETUNDIT VIRTUS or in one translation "Virtue alone withstands this blade". Volume I lacks the original title page, volume two with title page present. Bound in 1/4 calf over paper covered boards, red leather labels gilt, spine ends chipped, text without foxing.

        ...RELACION DE LA INSTITUCION EN ROMA DE LA INMACULADA CONCEPCION DE LA VIRGEN MARIA N.S. POR LA SANTIDAD DEL PAPA URBANO VIII. N. SEÑOR. COPIA DE DOS CARTAS, ESCRITAS DE ROMA, À DOS SEÑORES PREBENDADOS DE LA S. IGLESIA MAYOR DE LA CIUAD DE SEVILLA

      Madrid. [1624].. [4]pp. In Spanish. Woodcut illustration of the Virgin Mary and decorative initial on first page. Small folio. Dbd. Contemporary ink inscriptions in margins of second page. Early folds. Separated at center fold. A few small stains in upper margin of first leaf, not affecting text; very faint dampstains. Else very good. Two letters from Rome, signed in print by the Archdeacon of Carmona, Mateo Vázquez de Leca, and the Spanish composer and Franciscan priest, Bernardo de Toro, regarding the founding of a military religious order devoted to the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Writing from Rome in February 1624, the two had recently arrived from Seville, a major base of support for the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, the belief that the Virgin Mary was conceived without original sin. While the Church had implicitly endorsed the doctrine with the establishment of its feast day in 1476, the belief was not ruled dogma until 1854. Before that time, a healthy debate reigned among both theologians and popular believers, and the Franciscans and general populace of Seville were well known for their fierce advocacy of the doctrine. Bernardo de Toro (1570-1643) and Mateo Vázquez de Leca (1563-1649) contributed substantially to the cultural aspects of the Sevillan movement, with the former setting popular verses on the subject to music and the latter supporting devotional painters and the famous Seises dancers with generous funds. Toro and Vázquez are still remembered as Baroque-era Seville's two greatest champions of the Immaculate Conception, a reputation they began to develop in 1615, when they traveled together to Madrid to defend the Archbishop of Seville's promulgation of the doctrine before King Philip III. In the early 1620s the two garnered support from several European nobles to found the religious knighthood discussed in this letter, gaining an audience with Pope Urban VIII in 1624. The present letters discuss the backing of the order, the "Christian Militia of the Immaculate Conception of the Most Holy Virgin Mary," by the Count of Altan (Germany), the Duke of Mantua, the Duke of Neuers (France), and Ana Mendoza, the Duchess del Infantado. Vázquez dates his letter February 8, four days before the Pope would issue the Bull "Imperscrutabilis," formally establishing the establishing the order on February 12. Little is currently known of the group beyond a handful of documents printed in 1624 and 1625, but it may have inspired the similarly named Militia Immaculada, founded by sainted Polish Franciscan priest Maximilian Kolbe in 1917 (Kolbe was executed at Auschwitz after volunteering to die in the place of a fellow prisoner, and canonized by John Paul II in 1982). Palau lists four printings of a similarly titled document (with "de la Orden militar" before "de la Immaculada Concepcion," which appears to have been omitted accidentally in the present issue), but no copies matching the title or imprint of the present one. Not located by OCLC, and possibly unrecorded. A very rare Spanish imprint, documenting an important moment in Catholic Mariology. PALAU 257775 through 257778 (variants).

Aetius and Attila, and a fine printer?s woodcut on the final verso. Full speckled brown cat?s paw calf c. 1700, a very good copy with fine impressions of the plates.

We see Attila and his army, tents, ships, scenes of sieges and battles, the Venetians, men and women, all in the dress of the 17th century. The title, an allegory of Venice, including a view of the city and Venezia seated on a big lion, is by Valesio who also did the frontispiece portrait of the author. The first of the plates (Attila with his army coming down from the hills) is by Bernardo Castello; the others by unknown artists. Fine copy. Cicognara 1044; Graesse VI, 512.?

Woodcut illustrations and tables in the text.. Scarce first edition of one of Snell's main works, his important lessons on navigation, in which he coined the term "loxodrome" and foreshadowed the differential triangle of Pascal. "The idea and figure of what is now called the differential triangle had appeared on several occasions before the time of Pascal, and even as early as 1624. Snell, in his "Tiphys Batavus", had thought of a small speherical surface bounded by a loxodrome, a circle of latitude, and a meridian of longitude as equivalent to a plane right triangle." (C.B. Boyer, The History of the Calculus and its Conceptual Development, p. 152). "In 1624 Snel published his lessons on navigation in Tiphys batavus (Tiphys was the pilot of the Argo). The work is mainly a study and tabulation of Pedro Nuñez' so-called rhumb lines (1537), which Snel named "loxodromes". His consideration of a small spherical triangle bounded by a loxodrome, a parallel, and a meridian circle as a plane right triangle foreshadows the differential triangle of Pascal and later mathematicians." (D.S.B.). Paul Helbronner (1871-1938) was a French topographer, alpinist, and geodosist, who pioneered cartography of the French Alps. Pointe Helbronner in the Mont Blanc massif is named in his honour

More than a third depicts interiors, sleeping quarters, cellars, etc. Others represent gardens, streets, city and seascapes. Some of them were drawn after the life, and the localities depicted have been identified by specialists" (Porteman). The engraved title-page and fifty-one copperplates, here engraved by C. Le Blon, J. Gelle, A. Poel, W. de Passe, and J.G. Swelinck after designs by A. van de Venne, are truly "of outstanding quality" (Landwehr). The engravings appear in fine impressions in this copy, offering "a kaleidoscopic view on the customs, costumes and manners in the 'Golden Age'" (Landwehr). Under each of these lively images is an eight line poem offering a moral lesson on the folly of mankind. Brune's commentary represents a Calvinist reaction against the supposedly immoral behaviour of the Dutch which followed the war with Spain. Ad.2: First Edition of this beautifully-illustrated "mirror" of Dutch seventeenth-century life. Based upon genre scenes at the annual Hague Fair, van de Venne captured attitudes and human behavior that were designed as a guide for proper manners and morals. Van de Venne worked closely with some of the best Dutch engravers of the time to ensure that his ideas lost nothing during their transfer to the printing plate. The theme of the present work (the title translates as 'Scenes of the Laughable World') and comments on the attractions and various types of visitors at the famous annual fair in The Hague. Unusually, this work from the Dutch Golden Age is both written and illustrated by the same man: Adriaen van de Venne, based in The Hague, a miniaturist as well as a versatile painter (on a larger scale) of allegories, genre subjects and portraits. The present work is probably the best example of his work as an author, as well as including some of his finest book illustrations - he specialized in the emblematic subjects so beloved of the book-buying public at the time. The theme of the present work (the title translates as 'Scenes of the Laughable World') is explored largely through the device of a dialogue between the young farmer Tamme Lubbert (Soft Johnny) and his sweetheart. They comment on the attractions and visitors at the famous annual fair in The Hague, with a sidebar containing moralizing proverbs and sayings printed in the columns on the outer margins. Fine copies of two quintessential emblem books of the Dutch Golden Age, with excellent impressions of the plates. Brune: Praz 288. Landwehr, Emblem Books 64. K.

Si l?on en croit certains critiques anglais.. on trouve dans son ouvrage la preuve formelle que c?est Bacon qui écrivit les pièces de Shakespeare et cette preuve en fut donnée au lendemain meme de la publication de celles - ci, puisque le recueil connu sous le nom de ?premier folio? vit le jour en 1623. Dès la première page on en aperçoit la clef. Le titre - frontispice, en effet, est divisé en quatre cartouches qui ont chacun une signification précise. Celui de gauche représente un gentilhomme (Bacon) donnant son écrit à un homme porteur d?une lance ("shake - spear", qui remue une lance), lequel tient à la main son chapeau qu?orne une branche de laurier et dont la figure ressemble à celle que grava Dugdale du buste de Shakespeare. Celui de droite représente le meme homme, reconnaissable à son chapeau, donnant de l?éperon ("shake - spur", qui remue l?éperon) au cheval qu?il monte. Celui d?en haut, encadré des trois masques de la farce, de la comédie et de la tragédie, représente une tempete (allusion à la pièce: The Tempest) avec sur le rivage de fanaux ("beacon", mot qui alors se prononçait de meme que "bacon"). Enfin, celui du bas représente un homme (Shakespeare) écrivant à un bureau, mais tenu en laisse par un seigneur (Bacon) qui, entre eux, élève un chapeau, ce seul couvre - chef symbolisant le contrat secret liant les deux personnages? - Brunet,V,270: ?ouvrage curieux? - Benezit,VII, p. 798 (x gli artisti Kilian).

        La Diana de George de Monte Mayor. Primera y segunda parte. Agora nuevamente corregida, y emendada.

      Lisbon, Por Pedro Craesbeeck Impressor de su Magestad., 1624. - Title page with ruled border and typographical vignette. Typographical headpiece. Small woodcut initials. Divisional title page for the second part on p. [361] with woodcut arms. [8 ll.], 687 pp. 8°, early to mid-twentieth-century antique speckled sheep, spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments, burgundy morocco lettering piece, gilt letter, marbled endleaves, text-block edges rouged. A few headings slightly shaved; other minor defects. Overall in good to very good condition. Contemporary signature of Paulo Correa on verso of title page. ---- First Portuguese Edition. The Portuguese author was born at Montemôr-o-Velho, near Coimbra (ca. 1520?). He spent a good part of his adult life in Spain, returning only briefly to Portugal, and was either assassinated or killed in a duel in Turin, 1561. His @Diana was the first Spanish pastoral novel. It is one of those works, and he is one of those authors, which can be said to belong to Portuguese as well as to Spanish literature. The @Diana, moreover, was "the starting?point of a universal literary fashion" - @Encyclopedia Britannica (11th ed.), XVIII, 766. Menendez y Pelayo declared that "it exercised a greater influence on modern literature than any other pastoral romance, even the @Arcadia and @Daphnis and Chloe." The @Diana was one of the great international best sellers of the Golden Age, appearing in numerous editions, and eliciting two significant sequels, by Alonso Pérez and Gaspar Gil Polo, sometimes reprinted together with the original (as in the present edition, the second part of which is the sequel by Pérez). It inspired other pastoral romances in Spanish, the most notable of which was undoubtedly Cervantes' @Galetea. Later Cervantes selected the @Diana as one of the few books to be saved, by the good taste of the curate, in the destruction of Don Quixote's library. The @Diana exerted considerable influence upon the literatures of other countries, notably England, Germany, Italy and France. The story of Felismena in the second book of the @Diana was an indirect source, through a translation included in Googe's @Eglogs, epytaphes and sonnets, of the episode of Proteus and Julia in the @Two Gentlemen of Verona; Sydney's pastoral is redolent of Montemayor. According to Gordon de Percel, @Bib. de l'Usage des Romans (Paris, 1734, II, 23?24), there were six different French translations. Yet another continuation of the @Diana, based on the versions of Pérez and Gil Polo, by the plagiarist Jerónimo de Texeda, was probably composed in France, and published at Paris, 1627, in Spanish. Palau refers to 20 different editions and adaptations in French published during the sixteenth, seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. According to Picot, few other books achieved such long-lived success in France as @La Diana. It inspired @L'Astreé by Honoré d'Ufré. Alexandre Hardy dramatized an episode borrowed from the seventh book: @Felisméne (1613); another episode was developed by Jaques Pousset de Montauban: @Les charmes de Felicie, terés de la Diane de Montemayor, pastorale (Paris, 1654).---- Arouca M422.

      Toledo, Iuan Ruyz de Pereda, 1624. - Title within double rule border, each page within single rule border. Woodcut initials. (6 ll.), 150 ll. 4°, contemporary limp vellum (small hole in spine, lacks ties), vertical manuscript lettering on spine. Light dampstaining and very light toning to a few leaves, otherwise crisp and clean. In fine condition. Signature of D. Manuel de Menezes, dated 1626, on title-page. Stamp of the Casa de Cadaval on title-page and Pp2@v, stamp and label on front flyleaf. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The subject was born in Talavera de la Reina, 1328, and died in Toledo, 18 May 1399. His Gallego family was living in Toledo, with strong economic interests in the region of Talavera. D. Pedro Tenorio began his ecclesiastical career as archdeacon in Toro, then becoming a canon in Zamora. After taking the side of the Trastamaras in the Castilian civil war he was forced into exile in France and Italy, but made good use of this time, studying canon law at Rome, and consolidating his position within the Church. He returned to Castile at the time of the establishment of the papacy in Avignon, participating in the battle of Nájera, where his brother lost his life and he was captured. Released seven months later, in 1371 he was appointed bishop and sent to the diocese of Coimbra. Against the views of Enrique II, Pope Gregory XI appointed him archbishop of Toledo. There he began a comprehensive reform of the ecclesiastical courts until finally Juan I brought him into the Royal Council.He then produced a great monastic reform, participated in the war that attempted to win the Portuguese crown for the king of Castile, and played a key role in developing the Castilian position with regard to the schism in the West. With the death of Juan I, and the advent of Enrique III, as a member of the Council of Regency he suffered imprisonment due to involvement in the conspiracy of several clerics and nobles who wished to facilitate the invasion of Portugal. In 1393, released, he returned to his role in the Court.He is most noted for work in the diocese of Toledo, and in the city in general, particularly in his ability to affect the construction of the cathedral and the @Puente del Arzobispo, named in his honor, today called the Puente de San Martín.@Provenance: On D.

        Francisci Baronis De Verulamio, Vice-Comitis Sancti Albani. De Dignitate Et Augmentis Scientiarum. Libri IX Ad Regem Suum

      Paris: Petri Mettayer, 1624 Book. Very Good. Vellum. 2nd Edition. *p2 **4 ***2 A-3X4 3Y2 The second edition of Francis Bacon&#39;s De Dignitate et Augmentis Scientiarum, published in Paris one year after its first appearance in London and &#39;Juxta Exemplar Londini Impressum&#39;. The book is robustly bound in old vellum over boards with the title in pen on the spine, some light marks to the vellum and a little rubbing to the vellum at the foot of the rear panel of the book. The binding appears to be a shade later than the printed text, with laid paper endpapers with vertical chain lines with double headed eagle watermark, as opposed to the chainlines in the text which are horizontal as per a quarto publication. The text is complete as called for (text-block 22.4x17.4cm) with browning and a little finger marking to the margins of the title page, otherwise very good throughout; some staining in the gutter running through the second half of the text. Bacon&#39;s De Dignitate is a revised and translated version of the Advancement of Learning of 1605 and as such occupies a key role in his envisaged rebirth and recasting of learning, the Great Instauration. This swift reprint of the London edition of the Dignitate is an indication of the European enthusiasm for Bacon&#39;s work even at this relatively early point in the seventeeth century. Gibson 130.

        Sir Thomas Moore&#39;s Utopia : containing an excellent, learned, wittie, and pleasant Discourse of the best state of a Publike Weale... translated into English by Raphe Robinson

      London: Bernard Alsop, 1624. Small quarto, very small hole to leaf E3 (affecting two letters of text), attractive contemporary owner&#39;s signature to titlepage; a handsome copy in nineteenth-century blue morocco by Riviere, neatly rebacked in matching style, an elegant copy. Good early edition of More&#39;s great invented world. A very good seventeenth-century copy of Thomas More&#39;s landmark fable in English, the fourth edition of the humanist Ralph Robinson&#39;s translation, here "newly corrected" by Bernard Alsop. It is also the first edition to carry the new dedication to Cresacre More, great grandson of the author. This is the classic English translation of Utopia from the original Latin, and &#39;has not been displaced in popular esteem by the subsequent efforts of Gilbert Burnet (1684) and Arthur Cayley (1808)&#39; (DNB). More&#39;s work is the landmark of a genre that has had a far-reaching effect on the world of letters and of the imagination. The notion of an ideal society had been canvassed before, notably by Plato, but it was More who fully developed the concept of an imagined ideal world, and who also gave the familiar name to the concept, with his famous pun on "good place" (eutopos) and "nowhere" (outopos). More&#39;s invention relied heavily on the voyage accounts of his day: Utopia is a New World discovery made by More&#39;s hero, Hythlodaye, during one of his three voyages with Amerigo Vespucci. The work owes a considerable debt to &#39;the sense of discovery and possibility afforded by the Renaissance voyages of exploration&#39; (Susan Bruce, Three Modern Utopias). With the early ownership signature of W. Inge in two places on the title page.

Binding tight and firm. A good copy of a scarce French translation. 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.
