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.

        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.

        Historia particolare delle cose passate tra 'l sommo pontefice paolo v e la serenissima republica di venetia. gl'anni 1605, 1606 1607... divisa in sette libri. in lione, s.n., 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. Cfr. Cicogna, Graesse e Piantanida.

      Padoua (Padua), per Pietro Paolo Tozzi, 1624. Folio. Bound in a solid, nice, later full vellum bdg. (ca. 1900) made from cont. vellum. A very nice and clean copy w. occational brownspotting. Portrait and f. 5 evenly browned. F. H1 w. two small tears at top, one affecting text, but without loss. Woodcut title-vignette, full-page engr. portrait of the Danish King Christian IV, engr. portrait of Fabris (Nic. Andrea after Melchior Lorck) on t-p. of second part, 190 large half-page engravings (ca. 15x18 cm.) depicting naked fencers in various positions (engr. by Holbeeck and Francesco Valeggio). 3 ff., 256, 2 pp.. Title issue of the first 1606 edition. This edition is on the title-page called "Seconda editione", but in reality the only difference between the two editions is the title-page and the dedication, the rest of the book is the first edition printed in Copenhagen by Henrik Waldkirch in 1606. When Fabris returned from Copenhagen to Padua, he brought the unsold copies of his "De lo schermo o vero scienza d'arme" with him and had Tozzo print a new title-page and an updated dedication, the rest of the leaves, i.e. the engravings and the text on fencing, are first printings. On p. 256 a woodcut vignette is pasted over the original colophon in order to disguise the original Danish printer. This is one of the most important books ever printed on combats with rapier and dagger. Chs. Richard Cammell calls it "the most complete work produced in this art" ("Philobiblon", 1936). It is also the first book with copper-engravings to be printed in Denmark. "Fabris divides his work into two books and six parts. The first book treats thoroughly the question of broad principles and of the more 'academic' actions with the rapier alone, or accompanied with dagger or cloak; it discusses in a very exhaustive manner the relative value of the past and present methods. The second book is one wherein is demonstrated certain rules with which it will be possible to strike the enemy from the moment the sword is drawn, without halting or waiting any time, principles which has never been treated by any master or writer" (Thimm p. 97). Brunet II:1155. Birkelund nr. 37. Thesaurus 456
