Georg Erasmus Freiherr von Tschernembl (* 26. Januar 1567 Schwertberg, Oberösterreich; aEUR 18. November 1626 in Genf, Schweiz) war ein Calvinist und Wortführer der Stände in Österreich ob der Enns. Er war der Sohn des Hans von Tschernembl. Am 13. Oktober 1599 heiratete er Elise Preuner. Als Calvinist stand er dem Hause Habsburg ablehnend gegenüber und strebte eine Union der Protestanten in den habsburgischen Ländern und in Deutschland an und unterstützte Matthias bei der Auseinandersetzung mit Kaiser Rudolf II. Am 12. August 1606 war er Vertreter der oberösterreichischen Stände bei den Verhandlungen in Wien. Vor allem 1608 verhandelte er mit Ständevertretern in Böhmen, Mähren und Ungarn. Nachdem Rudolf II. auf seine Herrschaft in Österreich und Ungarn verzichtet hatte, wollten die Stände Zugeständnisse von König Matthias erreichen (aEUR Bewegung von HornaEURoe). Die Verhandlungen darüber zogen sich in die Länge, mit der aEUR Capitalations-ResolutionaEURoe vom 19. März 1609 erreichten die Stände freie Religionsausübung. Als Matthias 1619 starb, wurde Ferdinand II. sein Nachfolger, der die Gegenreformation mit allen Mitteln durchsetzen wollte. Tschernembl stand an der Spitze der Stände von Oberösterreich, die eine Huldigung verweigerten und am 16. August 1619 ein Bündnis mit den aufständischen böhmischen Ständen schlossen. Als Tilly im Sommer 1620 mit seinem Heer in Oberösterreich einmarschierte, flüchtete Tschernembl mit Gesinnungsgenossen zu den böhmischen Truppen nach Eggenburg in Niederösterreich und mit diesen weiteren nach Prag, wo er auf Bitten böhmischer Landoffiziere Präsident im Kriegsrat wurde. Nach der Niederlage der böhmischen Stände bei der Schlacht am Weißen Berg (8. November 1620) ging er über die Oberpfalz, Württemberg und Heidelberg nach Genf ins Exil, wo er verarmt starb.

From the collection of the Princes of Oettingen-Wallerstein, a still extant Southern German noble family, with their inkstamp on the title. First published in 1561, the work remained one of the most popular of its kind until the 18th century; it contains a wealth of interesting observations on the habits of animals since confirmed by naturalists. The woodcuts show a hunting party resting, a hunter being paid for shooting a deer, several kinds of antlers, the training and care of hounds, various tools such as spades, shovels, hoes, etc.; a shepherdess with her flock of sheep, and a three-masted ship with hunters and hounds on bord. Numerous hunting tunes are added as woodcut music in the text. The fine full-page woodcut in the reverse of the title page shows the author presenting his work to King Charles IX. - Outer margin of title reinforced on verso (no loss to image); scattered light spotting, lightly browned. Occasional remarginings. Extremities lightly rubbed, lower hinge beginning to split. A handsome, well-preserved copy. - Souhart 153. Thiebaud, p. 305. Brunet II, 1357. Cf. Schwerdt 153.

      Straßburg, Eberhard Zetzner, 1624.. . Die von Zincgref veranstaltete höchst seltene allererste Opitzausgabe. Sie wurde ohne Opitz' Wissen aus einem Manuskript, das dieser 1620 in Heidelberg zurückgelassen hatte, zusammengestellt und durch viele andere zeitgenössische und ältere Gedichte vermehrt. Damit hatte Zincgref nicht nur eine Anthologie des Heidelberger Dichterkreises zusammengestellt, sondern auch das erste Denkmal der Renaissancedichtung geschaffen, das er dazu mit einer wichtigen literarhistorischen Einleitung versah. Opitz beklagte das Erscheinen der Sammlung. Er sah, vor allem durch seine Jugendgedichte, die er in dieser Form nicht mehr anerkannte, seine hochfliegenden Pläne gefährdet. Sein 'Buch von der Poeterey' (1624) und die 'Acht Bücher Deutscher Poematum' von 1625 erschienen danach, mit durch diese Ausgabe veranlasst, gleichsam als Korrektur. "Man weiß, wie sehr diese ... Sammlung und Herausgabe seiner Gedichte ... Opitz verstimmt hat. Doch, fähig und willens, alles Gegebene zu verwerten, bedient er sich des Buches vorläufig, ja dediciert es Gönnern, wenn auch mit der einschränkenden Bemerkung, die Gedichte seien ab aliis collecta et edita', solange bis er seine eigene Ausgabe fertiggestellt hat ... Neben den älteren, noch aus dem vorigen Jahrhundert hereinragenden Dichtern, wie Melissus, ist besonders Weckherlin durch eine ganze Reihe seiner Jugendgedichte vertreten, unter ihnen das berühmte Kriegslied 'Frisch auf, Ihr dapffere Soldaten'. Äußerst wichtig ist die ausführliche literarhistorische Einleitung Z's, in der er, das vergangene Jahrhundert zurückschauend, das Verhältnis der alten zur neuen Dichtweise streift, viele Dichternamen aufzählt, unter ihnen den damals schon sagenhaften Schwabe von der Heide, und auf Opitz als den Mittelpunkt des kommenden Zeitalters hinweist" (Wolfskehl). Zur Bewertung der Leistung und der Persönlichkeit Opitz' - beides wird heute immer noch unterschätzt - möchte ich hier das wiedergeben, was Karl Wolfskehl 1927 im Katalog zur denkwürdigen Versteigerung der Sammlung Manheimer geschrieben hat: "Wichtiger als alle Einwände, die in alter und neuer Zeit gegen Opitz erhoben wurden, ist die Tatsache seiner Anerkennung von Beginn der Literaturepoche, die er bewußt heraufführt, bis zu deren Abschluß. Über alle Gegensätze, ja über alle Veränderungen des Geschmacks hinaus war und blieb er während dieser Zeitspanne Gesetzgeber, Meister, Vorbild. Nicht wie wir ihn beurteilen, was er uns zu geben hat, hat bei unserer Bewertung mitzusprechen. Alle seine zeitgenössischen Gegner von Hübner bis Wekherlin (sie waren es zudem nur als vermeintliche Vorläufer) hat er zu sich bekehrt oder gezwungen. Alle Erweiterungen und Neuerungen in den theoretischen Anschauungen fußen bewußt und ausdrücklich auf ihm, wollen ihn nicht stürzen, sondern ergänzen. Mag er dürr oder reich, ein rationaler berechnender Vermittler fremden Gutes oder ein Feuerkopf gewesen sein: alle diese Fragen treten zurück vor der imposanten geschichtlichen Wirklichkeit, vor der Tatsache, daß es gerade in Deutschland, dem uneinheitlichsten aller Kulturgebiete, einmal einen wirklichen Diktator gegeben hat, daß ein Präceptor germaniae mit unbeschränkter Machtvollkommenheit ein ganzes Kunst- und Geistesgebiet zeitlebens und noch weit über seinen Tod hinaus beherrscht und gelenkt hat, daß ein ganzes Jahrhundert lang ein Dichter nicht höher geehrt werden konnte, als durch den Titel eines 'andern Opitz', und daß seine Regelung des deutschen Vers- und Satzbaues, die Aufhebung des altdeutschen rythmisch-musikalischen Verses, wie des bloß silbenzählenden zugunsten der strengen, von ihm eingeführten Accentuation bis heute herrscht. Seine Mittel waren kleiner, seine Absichten enger, unglückseliger die Zeit, für die er erstanden ist. Aber sein Werk hat er vollendet, den deutschen Vers hat er begründet und, mit der einzigen Ausnahme der katholischen deutschen Dichtung, die unbeachtet und nicht über sich hinausblickend ihrer eigenen Art gefolgt ist, ist das Jahrhundert, dem er angehörte, sein Jahrhundert gewesen". - Exlibris Paul Wallich. Titelblatt angefalzt und an zwei Stellen alt tektiert. Durchgehend leicht gebräunt, gutes Exemplar. - VD17 23:293466L. Dünnhaupt 1. Goed. III 41, 12a. Faber du Faur 201. Jantz 1926. Szyrocki 54.

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.

The events started in May 1624, when Don Alvaro made sail from Palermo in pursue of the pirates in command of his galleons (which included some from Palermo, Sicily and Malta).The title of Marques de Santa Cruz de Mudela was first granted to the great marine Don Alvaro de Bazan y Guzman (1526 ? 1588), in 1569, by Philip II of Spain, in recognition of his services, most particularly, the Battle of Lepanto. His son, Alvaro de Bazan y Benavides (1571 ? 1646) was also a marine officer who played a significant role in the Mediterranean and the Thirty Years War. His career somewhat commenced with his participation in the defense of Cadiz from the attack of the British fleet, he is soon appointed as General of the Galleons of Naples.Palau, 86555.

        [In Greek:] GYNAIKEION: OR, NINE BOOKES OF VARIOUS HISTORY CONCERNING WOMEN

      London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1624. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Encyclopedic Account of 3,000 Women, from Amazons to Strumpets to Beauties who Bewitch without Being Witches. 295 x 190 mm (11 3/4 x 7 1/2"). 6 p.l. (the first blank), 466 pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked to style, raised bands flanked by double gilt fillet, brown morocco label (rear cover repaired along fore edge, and hinges neatly reinforced with old paper). With woodcut initials, headpieces, and tailpieces, and a handsome engraved title page showing Apollo and the nine Muses. Front pastedown with bookplate of distinguished 20th century Detroit collector Otto Orren Fisher and, below it, the 17th century book label of Sir Charles Buck, Bart. (head margin of title page also inscribed "Bucke"); verso of first blank with ink inscription of Mary Skynner dated 1697. STC 13326; Lowndes II, 1063. Leather on covers a little dried and abraded, but the binding entirely sound and not at all displeasing. Title and first page of text with faint brown stains to lower half of leaf, gathering S with light dampstain to top half of leaves (very faint and small dampstains in a few other gatherings), occasional additional minor imperfections (mild marginal stains or thumbing, a rust hole or small splash), but, by and large, AN EXTREMELY FRESH, CLEAN COPY internally, with leaves that crackle when you turn them. This substantial early 17th century encyclopedia of women is one of the chief early books on its subject in English. It commences with the goddesses of ancient times and includes coverage of more than 3,000 women, mythical and actual. Amazons and sibyls, virtuous Roman maidens, daring Germanic queens, sinners from Greek drama, strumpets and scolds--all are evoked in turn and paraded before the reader as examples of female virtue and vice. Not surprisingly, the author's praise of beautiful, chaste, and modest women occupies some of the work, but there are portions of the text that make a more strenuous claim on our attention, like those dealing with unfaithful or incestuous women, those who meet with strange deaths, and even those who have by some miracle changed their sex. Then there is the extensive and intriguing section treating of witches. Heywood assures his reader that "bewitching" beauties are not truly witches, since witches are always ugly. They are also usually poor beggars, he reminds us, in case we consider dabbling in witchcraft to gain wealth. Much of his witchcraft material is drawn from the work of Jean Bodin, but Heywood also includes a story related to him personally by a neighbor who had unwisely borrowed a cauldron from a witch and set to sea with it. Later, when the witch appeared on the ship's mast, such a storm was roused that the boat all but capsized; the cauldron was finally tossed over, and the witch sailed away on it. Thomas Heywood (d. ca. 1650) was a versatile actor and dramatist, belonging to a group of players who were retained to put on private performances for noblemen, eventually becoming the queen's own troupe. He also wrote pageants for the mayor of London, and he claimed to have written 220 plays (he is generally recognized as the most prolific dramatist after Lope de Vega). Although a much smaller number than this has survived, they include historical dramas and tales of high and low life. A denizen of the London taverns, Heywood was always either writing or reading, and his love of ancient literature is reflected in this disquisition on women. There is an appealing historical link to a 17th century woman, who was perhaps influenced by this work, in the girlish signature of Mary Skynner at the front of the volume.

        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 × 17 mm). Contemporary full calf, spine in compartments with gilt titles and gilt and blind tooling, blind rules and tools to sides, marbled edges. "GE" initials gilt to front and rear board. Illustrated bookplate, incorporating an appropriate staff of Asclepius, of William Binns Cowper, sometime of the Royal Army Medical Corps during WWII, and a bookseller's ticket. Sometime rebacked with four of the six compartments of the original spine retained and laid down, general wear to the covers, some cockling to leaves, though on the whole clean except for some tanning to margins of end leaves. A good sound copy. 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 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) Prorzheimer 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". This copy bears the ownership inscription on the title page of Isaac Allgood, Northumberland landowner and father of Hannah Glasse, author of the famous Art of Cookery (1747).

La controverse avait été lancée par le jésuite Jerónimo Román de la Higuera (1563-1611), dans ses chroniques publiées sous le nom de Dextro. Divisé en deux parties à pagination particulière, "Defensa de F.L. Destro" et "Verdad de Fr. L. Dextro", l'ouvrage est illustré d'un titre-frontispice gravé aux armes de Don Francisco Fernández Bertrán et signé par Juan Schorquens. Notre exemplaire, auquel semble manquer le faux-titre, contient apparemment 4 feuillets de plus que celui décrit par Palau, dont les cahiers ee et ff ne comportaient que 2 feuillets (contre 4 dans notre exemplaire). Taches et rousseurs prononcés à quelques feuillets. Palau, 327111: "Es una encendida defensa de los escritos de Dextro, hijo de San Paciano, natural de Barcelona, fallecido en el año 444".

        Baya und? de Todos os Sanctos und statt S. Salvador von Hollandern em genomen

      Striking view of the naval siege of the Dutch forces on Bahia de Todos los Santos. 1624 [c.1630]. [Amsterdam]. Trimmed at foot on left side touching neatline. 370 mm x 190 mm. Of great iconographic value, it gives a detailed view of the city being sieged by Dutch forces, just after it was sacked and taken. Salvador was the centre of the economic power in Portuguese Brazil; this view was reproduced in several editions, often without the title at top, in fact, we have never seen another example of this edition. The map shows the city of Salvador under Dutch siege; the city is well represented and is of great iconographic value. In late 1623, a force of 26 ships was sent to attack, raid and take Salvador from the Portuguese; the mission was successful, but for a short while, as the next year the Portuguese retook it. This later attack was also successful, again only for a while, as the Dutch went at it again in 1627, the succession of events was well graphically represented by Visscher and Gerritsz [cartographer to the Dutch East and West India Co.]. Although there is a numbered key on the cities important buildings, there is no text underneath. An inset map of the Brazilian coast is found on the lower left side. The Portuguese presence in Salvador was long standing, as early as the second half of the 16th century. The city swiftly became one of the most important in the region.

        Sir Thomas Moore's Utopia

      London,: Bernard Alsop, 1624.. Small quarto, very small hole to leaf E3 (affecting two letters of text), attractive contemporary owner's signature to titlepage; a handsome copy in nineteenth-century blue morocco by Riviere, neatly rebacked in matching style, an elegant copy. A very good seventeenth-century copy of Thomas More's landmark fable in English, the fourth edition of the humanist Ralph Robinson'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 'has not been displaced in popular esteem by the subsequent efforts of Gilbert Burnet (1684) and Arthur Cayley (1808)' (DNB). More'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's invention relied heavily on the voyage accounts of his day: Utopia is a New World discovery made by More's hero, Hythlodaye, during one of his three voyages with Amerigo Vespucci. The work owes a considerable debt to 'the sense of discovery and possibility afforded by the Renaissance voyages of exploration' (Susan Bruce, Three Modern Utopias).With the early ownership signature of W. Inge in two places on the title page.European Americana, 624/93; Gibson, 'St. Thomas More... with a Bibliography of Utopiana', 28; Printing and the Mind of Man, 47 (citing the first 1516 Latin edition); STC, 18097.

        [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, 1624. 12mo (12 cm, 4.75"). 2 parts in 1vol. [6] ff., 510, [2] pp.; [513]–863, [1] pp. 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; there were six more genuine Elzevir Greek Testaments, printed between 1633 and 1678. It was in the preface to the 1633 edition that this text was first labelled "Textus Receptus." The text of this teeny tome is printed => 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: one in all black, and two in combinations of red and 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." One word of Greek and the words Testamentum and Ex officina Elzeviriana are printed in red on this title-page, and the place of printing is given as Lugduni Batavorum (not Lugduni alone), i.e., this is title-page variant C in Darlow and Moule's bibliography. Willems 225; Rumball-Petre, Rare Bibles, 251; Darlow & Moule 4669 (title-page is var. C); Dibdin, I, 134–35. Recent brown calf tooled in the Cambridge style, with marbled endpapers and blue edges; top edge gilt, and brown silk place holder. Ex-library with stamp on title-page verso and final page verso; waterstaining in varying degrees almost throughout, most strikingly (and in odd patterns) in the central section and at last leaves — very little other staining. Occasional early ink underlining and later pencil marginalia. An attractive, satisfactory little Elzevir, and an IMPORTANT production.

      Madrid: Juan Delgado, 1624.. [4]pp. In Spanish. Small folio. Dbd. Early folds. Contemporary numerical inscriptions in upper margin of first page. Chips, measuring up to 2 x 1 inches, in outer margins, not affecting text; tears, with some loss at gutter, and slight loss to text, along folds; all loss repaired in silk. Faint dampstaining. Good. Rare Spanish newsletter printing of a letter reporting on Spanish battles in the Low Countries in the fall of 1624, during the Thirty Years&#39; War. The author writes primarily of the Spanish efforts against Count Maurice of Nassau, who had steered the Dutch Revolt to success in the 1590s. In August 1624, the Spanish, led by Ambrosio Spinola, laid siege to the fortified city of Breda, which fell the following year - an event immortalized by Velázquez&#39;s famous painting "Las Lanzas." Maurice died in 1625 with the siege still underway. The letter is signed, perhaps pseudonymously, "Rodrigo de Lara," in Antwerp, October 20, 1624. Palau locates one copy at the National Library in Madrid; OCLC locates no copies. Very rare. PALAU 131562.

Azevedo e Samodães, 3167. "Na composição, embelezada de varias letras iniciais de desenho de fantasia, cabeções e florões decorativos e vinhetas ornamentais (gravura em madeira), aplicaram-se caracteres redondos e itálicos de vários corpos, sendo os de menor nas notas e citações marginais que acompanham o texto. Além do mencionado, o volume tem tambem a ilustrá-lo os (3) retratos, colocados em frente das Vidas respectivas destes escritores. Os retratos são gravados a buril em chapa de cobre, tendo os últimos as rubricas dos artistas que os executaram. Por o que fica transcrito se avalia facilmente do muito merecimento do livro, realmente notável a muitos respeitos. O autor é considerado um dos nossos bons clássicos seiscentistas. Edição primitiva, sem duvida a melhor e por isso a mais estimada. Os exemplares são actualmente MUITO RAROS, mormente quando completos e perfeitos como está o nosso, que contem os tres mencionados retratos, o que rarissimamente se vê, pois quasi sempre falta o de Diogo do Couto."

        Segunda Parte del Flos Sanctorum o Libro de las Vidas de los Santos. Al cabo se pone la vida del Santo Padre Ignacio de Loyola, fundador de la Compañia de Jesus y de algunos otros de sus bienaventurados hijos. Dirigida a Doña Juana Dormer, Duquesa de Feria.

      Madrid, por Luis Sanchez Impressor del Rey nuestro Señor, y a su costa, 1624. Folio; 6 hs., 620 pp. Portada en la que aparece el emblema de la Compañía de Jesús, grabado en cobre por Juan Bautista Villar, platero de Tarragona. Las ciento treinta y ocho últimas páginas contienen las vidas de Ignacio de Loyola, Francisco Javier, Francisco de Borja, Luis Gonzaga y Estanislao de Koska. Ejemplar en excelente estado de conjunto, pero ligeramente corto de márgenes exteriores, con la consiguiente pérdida de algunas letras de las abundantes notas manuscritas marginales que tiene el ejemplar. Encuadernación moderna en pergamino fuerte, a la romana. Edición extraordinariamente rara del «Flos Sanctorum», en la que por vez primera se incluyen los «santorables» de la Compañía, ya que las ciento treinta y ocho últimas páginas contienen las vidas de Ignacio de Loyola (1491-1556), Francisco Javier (1506-1552), Francisco de Borja (1510-1572), Luis Gonzaga (1568-1591) y Estanislao de Kostka (1550-1568). Ignacio de Loyola y Francisco Javier acababan de ser elevados a los altares en 1622 por Gregorio XV al mismo tiempo que Teresa de Avila, Felipe Neri e Isidro el Labrador, en una fabulosa ceremonia de canonización de amplias resonancias hispánicas. Francisco de Borja no sería canonizado hasta 1671 y su cuerpo enterrado en Madrid sería vandálicamente quemado en 1931. Luis Gonzaga y Estanislao de Kotska hubieron de esperar hasta 1726.

      Brugiotti, presso eredi Zannetti 1624 Notevole esemplare di questa pregiata ed. della Bibbia, stampata a Roma presso gli eredi di Bartolomeo Zannetti per Andrea Brugiotti, comprendente 8 dei 10 volumi previsti, raccolti in 5 tomi di uguale e bellissima legatura così composti: 1, 3+5, 10+4, 7, 8+9; mancano i voll. 2 (Iosue, Iudicum, Ruth, Regum) e 6 (Psalmi, Proverbia, Ecclesiastes, Canticum Canticorum, Sapientia, Ecclesiasticus). 8 voll. raccolti in 5 tomi in 24o lungo (cm 11 x 7) di pp. (48), 716, [4m]; 248; (8), 348; 408; 156, (192); (6), 726, (2); (4), 358, (2); 552, [2m]; 408; belle legg. uniformi, prob. della sec. metà del '600, di stile monastico in marocchino bruno scuro su assicelle di legno, piatti decorati a secco con cornice a triplo filetto ricurvo agli angoli ed elemento fitomorfo ripetuto - manualmente - all'int., d. a 4 nervetti e tit. in oro ai primi comparti, fermagli con asola a conchiglia; sguardie fisse decorate a pettine, tt. spruzzati.

Unica eccezione alla completezza le 3 cc.bb. mancanti, al 1o e al 9o vol. Cc. complessivamente molto buone, talvolta lievemente e unif. brunite, solo occasionalmente in misura marcata così come sporadiche e mai gravi sono fioriture, arrossamenti e tracce di umidità - aloni e gorette; rarissimi lavori di t. mai fastidiosi, ben visibile solo quello che, a partire dal contropiatto ant. del vol. 3 interessa il marg. inf. delle cc. A1-H1, senza perdita di t.; ridotte le sottolineature e le scritte a marg., quasi interamente concentrate nel Vangelo di Matteo; pochi restauri, sensibile e maldestro soltanto quello della c. F1 al vol. 9, con danno al t. In due casi si ha lo scambio di pos. tra cc. coniugate (L3,4 e P3,4 del vol. 1); margini piuttosto sobri, che arrivano spesso a interessare superiormente la cornice del front. In condizioni più che discreta le legg., solidissime, con mancanze non ben restaurate alle cuffie e al comparto sup., talvolta con danno ai titt., usure e lievi mancanze ai bb. ed ai piatti, alcune minime tracce di tarlo compresa, al piatto ant. del vol. 3, la galleria di cui si è detto sopra e che affiora parzialmente; 6 su 10 i fermagli superstiti, almeno uno per ogni vol.; 3 sguardie mobili assenti. Una delle raccolte più ricche reperibili sul mercato, essendo già rari i volumi sciolti, in stato di conservazione assai buono.
