[10], 360 pp. Illustrated with an engraved title-page and 51 half-page copperplate engravings by Willem de Passe and others after Adriaen van der Venne. Amsterdam: [Printed by Hans vander Hellen, Middleburgh, for] J.E. Cloppenburgh, 1624. BOUND WITH: VENNE, Adriaen Pietersz van de. Tafereel van de Belacchende Werelt, en des self geluckige Eeuwe, Goet Rondt, met by-gevoegde Raedel-Spreucken, aengevvesen in de Boer-Achtige Eenvoudigheyt, op de Haegsche Kermis. [14], 280 pp. Engraved title, woodcut vignette to letterpress title, 1 woodcut headpiece, 12 half-page engraved illustrations by Daniel van Bremden, Pieter de Jode the Younger, Pieter Serwouters, and others, all after van de Venne. Small 4to., 220 x 167 mm, bound in near-contemporary Dutch vellum, spine lettered in MS. The Hague: voor den autheur, 1635. |~||~||~||~| Ad. 1: First Edition of Brune's Emblemata, described by Porteman as: "one of the most splendid emblem books ever produced... As a source of information on seventeenth-century life these prints are indispensable. 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. Porteman, Inleiding tot de Nederlandse emblemataliteratuur 134-135. Van de Venne: Hollstein IX, 205, no. 119; XXXV, nos. 438-445. See: M. van Vaeck. Adriaen van de Vennes "Tafereel van de belacchende werelt" (den Haag, 1635). (Gent: 1994).

L?auteur qui signa ce livre, avec les pseudonymes de ?Gustavus de Selenica, stirpe oriundus? et de ?Gustavus Selenus? (lune), première partie du mot Lunebourg, était le duc Auguste de Bruenswick - Lunebourg.. 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).

        Historia particolare delle cose passate tra &#145;l sommo pontefice Paolo V e la Serenissima Republica di Venetia. Gl'Anni 1605, 1606 1607. Divisa in sette libri.

      s.n.,, In Lione, 1624 - Cm. 22, pp. (4) 328. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena semirigida con nervi a vista e titoli manoscritti al dorso. Esemplare marginoso, genuino ed in eccellente stato di conservazione. Si tratta verosimilmente della prima edizione di quest'opera che nello stesso anno vide apparire un'altra impressione con luogo di stampa Mirandola. Verte sulla presa di posizione della Repubblica di Venezia in difesa della libertà del potere civile contro le usurpazioni del potere ecclesiastico che ledevano la libertà dello stato. Il processo di irrigidimento dottrinale e l'accentramento burocratico della Chiese controriformista nel periodo successivo al Concilio di Trento (1545-63) avevano spinto il Papa Paolo V a scagliare nel 1606 l'interdetto contro la Repubblica di Venezia che rifiutava di rimettere al foro ecclesiastico questioni che riteneva di competenza del Consilio del Dieci. Nel conflitto sorto tra la Repubblica veneziana e Paolo V, Sarpi fu appassionato difensore dell'autonomia giurisdizionale dello Stato. Eletto infatti consultore "in iure" con la qualifica di teologo canonista impugnò brillantemente la giustificazione dottrinale dell'azione del Papa divenendo vero campione dello Stato nei rapporti con la Chiesa.

        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.

        Historia particolare delle cose passate tra'l sommo Pontefice Paolo V. e la Serenissima Republica de Venetia gl Anni MDCV, MDCVI, MDCVII. (1605-7)

      In Lione 1624 - [Venice] - Divisa in Sette Libri. 4to., iv,1-328pp., complete, Libro Settimo, Printed at Venice with the disguised imprint of Lyons (Lione), contents fresh and crisp with good margins, later endpapers, full vellum, lettered in ink to spine now faded, stitched, faded & worn however sound & very good. PAUL V., 1605-21. In 1605 Paul V., a member of the Borghese family, became pope. Great monuments such as the Villa Borgese still bear witness to the memory of this family in Rome. Paul, like his predecessors, was a nepotist; although he did not carry this practice to the extent of former times, he lost no opportunity of promoting his relatives to wealth and power. This weakness, however, enabled him to continue the patronage which so many of the popes had extended to the arts, to beautify the Eternal City and thus to enhance the splendour of the papacy. Paul V., who was a man of great piety and virtue was also active in the religious sphere. Much was done to promote missionary work in Japan, China, India, Persia, Ethiopia, the Congo and the colonies of the New World. He proved himself a vigorous defender of the rights of the Church in his relations with temporal powers, and in particular against the encroachments of Venice, where Paolo Sarpi wished to make the Church dependent on the State. The quarrel took on an added significance when Paolo Sarpi an eminent Venetian scholar who had already criticized the papal claims to temporal authority as inconsistent with its spiritual position, brought the weight of his learning to support the Venetian cause. In England fresh legislation against the Catholics was adopted as a result of the Gunpowder plot (1605) which was regarded as being due to Catholic teaching. The Catholics were required to take an oath which stigmatised the Catholic Church as a sect inimical to the State and to civilization; this oath, which was banned by Paul V provided James I, who himself entered the lists of theological controversy, with a potent weapon against what remained of Catholicism in England. So far as European politics are concerned, the latter years of the republic are made memorable by one important event: the resistance which Venice, under the guidance of Fra Paolo Sarpi, offered to the growing claims of the Curia Romana, advanced by Pope Paul V. Venice was placed under interdict (1606), but she asserted the rights of temporal sovereigns with a courage which was successful and won for her the esteem and approval of most European sovereigns. SARPI, PAOLO. (1552-1623), Venetian patriot, scholar and church reformer, was born at Venice on Aug. 14, 1552. In 1570 he sustained no fewer than three hundred eighteen theses at a disputation in Mantua, with such applause that the duke made him court theologian. In 1579 he was sent to Rome on business connected with the reform of his order, which occupied him several years, and brought him into intimate relations with three successive popes. He returned to Venice in 1588 and passed the next seventeen years in study. In the dispute which arose between Paul V and Venice on the extent of the papal jurisdiction in the Venetian State, Sarpi prepared on behalf of the republic a memoir, pointing out that the threatened censures might be met in two ways &#150; de facto, by prohibiting their publication and de jure, by an appeal to a general council. The document was received with universal applause and Sarpi was immediately made canonist and theological counsellor to the republic. In the following April Paul excommunicated the Venetians and sought to lay their dominions under an interdict. Sarpi now republished the anti-papal opinions of the famous canonist Gerson.

        Historia de D. Pedro Tenorio Arcobispo de Toledo. Dos libros ?

      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. Manuel de Menezes [or Meneses], "Oficial da Armada, em que teve o posto de general . . . m. em 28-VII-1628" see @Grande enciclopédia, XVI, 936-7; also Barbosa Machado, III, 310-2. The Casa de Cadaval, headed by the Dukes of Cadaval, was and remains one of the oldest, wealthiest and most important noble families of Portugal. They trace their lineage back to D. Nuno Alvares Pereira de Melo (1638-1727), the first Duke. The library, despite some dispersals, remains one of the the nation's most significant still in private hands.

        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.
