Rojas, Fernando de].
Frankfurt, David & Daniel Aubry, Clemens Schleich, 1624. (48), 462 [recte: 461], (1) SS. Titel in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Pappband des 19. Jhs. mit hs. Rückentitel. 8vo. Einzige lateinische Ausgabe von de Rojas tragikomischer Prosanovelle "Celestina" (EA 1499, nur die ersten 16 Kapitel). Verfasst als Warnungsbuch für die Jugend, das früheste Werk seiner Art in der Literaturgeschichte und nach dem 'Don Quixote' eines der gefeiertsten spanischen Literaturwerke. "Als solches ist es denn auch von fast allen Nationen und von den ernstesten Männern sehr hoch geschätzt worden, wiewohl die schmutzigen Details einer widerlichen Kupplerwirtschaft nur zu naturgetreu dargestellt sind [.] Wie viel Aufsehn das Buch zu seiner Zeit machte, lässt sich aus der Menge von Übersetzungen schließen, die davon erschienen. - So eine deutsche, die unter dem Namen 'Hurenspiegel' schon im Jahre 1520 in Nürnberg erschien" (Brinckmeier, Gesch. der span. Nationallit., S. 121f.). "Die dämonisch-riesenhafte Gestalt der Kupplerin, der Celestine selbst, steht ohnegleichen da und reichte für sich alleine hin, ihrem Schöpfer den Stempel der Dichtergröße aufzudrücken" (Hayn/G. I, 589). Übersetzt und herausgegeben vom deutschen Philologen und Barockdichter Caspar von Barth (1587-1658), der auch eine Auswahl spanischer Amadislieder beigegeben hat (Anhang "Ad Pornobocodidascalum. Latinum Suum. Animadversiones. Tralatitiae", S. 301ff.). - Ecken und Kanten leicht bestoßen. Titel mit kl., alt hinterlegtem Einriss. Papierbedingt durchgehend etwas gebräunt; saubere alte Anstreichungen in Kopierstift. Sehr selten; sei … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GRAVIUS, Daniel (ed.)].
Cordier, Sinica, col. 292; KVK & WorldCat (5 copies, incl. 1 lacking frontispiece); Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 682; STCN (2 the same copies); for general background: Chin Hsin-hui, Colonial "civilizing process" in Dutch Formosa, 1624-1662 (2008). Very rare first and only edition of one of the earliest, best and most extensive sources for the East Formosan Siraya language (a member of the Austronesian family), now largely extinct. It appears here in the form of a bilingual (Siraya and Dutch) catechism, with the Siraya transcribed in the Latin alphabet. The dedication is signed by the Dutch Reformed missionary Daniel Gravius (1616-1678), who lived in Formosa from 1647 to 1651. He had published a much shorter Sirayan edition of the Gospel of Saint Matthew in 1661, but the present catechism appears to be the first major published work in the language. Gavius's catechism was printed by order of the directors of the VOC. We have located only five other copies of the present edition, all in European libraries.When the Dutch were expelled from mainland China in 1624, they moved much of their operation to Formosa (now Taiwan), building Fort Zeelandia there ca. 1629 but being forced to abandon it in 1661/62, when they were defeated by the Chinese. Ironically this led to the rapid decline of the indigenous languages and finally the dominance of Mandarin Chinese on the island. So Gravius was able to record the language in its more or less undisturbed form. The fact that the entire Austronesian family of languages is thought to have originated in Formosa gives additional importance to t … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMILLO GLORIOSO, Giovani.
1624. A IOANNE CAMILLO GLORIOSSO GIOFONENSI. Publico tunc temporis eiusdem Gymnasij MATHEMATICO. In qua per tríplices, easque celebriores hypotheses vtro citroque disputatur. VENETIIS, M DC XXIV. [1624] Ex Typographia Varisciana. In 4.º de 22x15,5 cm. Com [viii], 288, [ii] págs. Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexível. Bela impressão sobre papel de linho muito alvo e com bastante sonoridade. Folha de rosto impressa a duas cores (preto e vermelho) e bela vinheta tipográfica. Adornado com capitulares xilográficas e ilustrada no texto com esquemas gráficos trigonométricos astrais. Obra raríssima. La Lande, pág. 187. Giovanni Camillo Glorioso (1572-1643), foi um famoso matemático e astrónomo italiano que se relacionou e correspondeu-se (entre outros) com Clavius e Galileu, deste último foi discípulo e seu sucessor na regência da cátedra da Universidade de Pádua. Como explica o autor no seu prefácio, a publicação foi motivada pelo aparecimento do cometa espetacular e extraordinariamente brilhante em Novembro de 1618, que ainda era visível em Janeiro de 1619. Obra dedicado a Marino Gethaldo e dividido em 5 "livros", tratando das teorias astronômicas de Copérnico, Tiko Brahe, Kepler, Galileu e outros. Esta obra muito rara está repleta de informações curiosas, e encontramos nela a menção de uma espécie de telescópio (ou perspicillum), usado, diz-se, pelo Papa Leão X no início do século XVI. A questão importante colocada nesta obra decorre do novo conceito de paralaxe, segundo o qual o autor assume pela primeira vez que os cometas são corpos efectivamente celestes, contrariamen … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition of this important collection of letters written by Arnaud D'Ossat to Henry the IV of France of great historical significance. "These letters formerly served as models for diplomats, owing not only to the importance of the questions which they treat, but especially to the talent for exposition which d'Ossat displays in them. The French Academy inscribed Ossat among the "dead authors who have written our French language most purely". Wiquefort in his "Mémoires sur les ambassadeurs" finds in them "the clearest and most enlightened judgment ever displayed by any minister", and Lord Chesterfield wrote to his son that the "simplicity and clea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed by John Lichfield and James Short, for Henry Cripps, 1624. Seconda edizione notevolmente rivista e aumentata; la prima nel formato in folio, più nobile. Ex libris Jacobi P. R. Lyell (1871-1948), antico possessore che al recto della prima sguardia incolla un foglio con descrizione del volume. Frontespizio con normali segni del tempo e una toppa di carta all'angolo superiore esterno, a sanare antico strappo; per il resto ottimo esemplare, fresco e pulito, in notevolissima legatura alle armi (dorso restaurato con inserti in pelle), nota ai repertori specialisti ma non identificata (inquartato: 1. croce ancorata; 2. tre croci trilobate, gallone di sfondo; 3. banda su triangoli; 4. gallone con tre gufi). Ampiamente rivista dall'autore, l'edizione segue di soli tre anni la prima in quarto. Seguiranno numerose altre edizioni secentesche. Trattato filosofico-psicologico che ebbe un enorme successo ed esercitò un'influenza profonda e duratura. «The 'Anatomy', as its publishing history shows, 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 Fool' (37), Erasmus's 'Prise of Folly' (43), and More's 'Utopia' (47), with Rabelais and Montaigne (95) and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time» (PMM).

Abu-l-'Abbas Ahmad ibn Mohammed al-Maqqari (or Al-Makkari) ( c. 1578-1632)
1624. EXCEPTİONAL Complete work with SEVEN illuminated miniatures of the Prophet Muhammad's Shoes. The manuscript was written in 1033 AH., 1624 AD. in Medina during the author's life time, and reserved for two days towards the Prophet's head inside the shrine, as noted on the firs page of the manuscript. Abu-l-'Abbas Ahmad ibn Mohammed al-Maqqari (or Al-Makkari) (c. 1578-1632) was an Algerian scholar who was born in Tlemcenin 1577 from a prominent intellectual family that traced its origin to the village of Maqqara, near M'sila.After an early training in Tlemcen, al-Maqqari moved to Fes in Morocco and then to Marrakech, following the court of Ahmad al-Mansur, to whom he dedicated his Rawdat al-As (The garden of Myrtle) about the ulemas of Marrakech and Fes. After al- Mansur's death in 1603, al-Maqqari established himself in Fes, where he was appointed both as mufti and as the imam of the Qarawiyyin mosque by al-Mansour's successor Zidan Abu Maali. In 1617, he left for the East, possibly because of a quarrel with the local ruler, and took his residence in Cairo, where he composed his best known work, Nafḥ al-ṭīb.In 1620 he visited Jerusalem and Damascus, and during the next six years made the pilgrimage five times. In 1628 he was again in Damascus, where he gave a course of lectures on Bukhari's collection of Traditions, spoke much of the glories of Muslim Iberia, and received the impulse to write his work on this subject later. In the same year he returned to Cairo, where he spent a year in writing his history. He was just making preparations to settle definitely in Damascu … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARTIAL [Marcus Valerius MARTIALIS].
Sedan, Jean Jannon, 1624. 8vo. 17th-century calf with raised bads, spine lettered and ornamented in gilt, coverls with gilt-ruled double-fillets; pp. [viii], 342, woodcut printer's device to title, a few woodcut head-pices and initials; binding worn, but stable, a few faint marginal waterstains, otherwise a very good and still crisp copy; early 18th-century French ownership inscriptions and one armorial seal to title. First Jannon edition. Printed in the independent (up to 1651) Protestant Principality of Sedan in the Ardennes, close to the modern French border with Belgium, this collection of verses by the greatest Latin epigrammatist is a sensational achievement of French typography and Protestant book production. In 1610 the Parisian master printer Robert III Estienne recommended the printer, librarian and typecutter Jean Jannon to the Prince of Sedan as a talented and Protestant man of the book. Sedan developed into an academy of Protestant erudition with an impressive collection of printed books, manustcripts and works of art. Jannon began to print academic theses, classics and religious works, whilst designing and cutting types in Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Syriac. The type used here, la petite sedanoise, as it became known later, after it had been pirated by a Parisian typecutter, was the smallest type created since the invention of printing. It measures a mere 4.9 points. Jannon reserved this particular type solely for his own use and did not sell it to other printers as he did with other types of his design. The French government seized Jannon's printshop in 1641 and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Opitz, Martin.
Breslau, David Müller, 1624. Äußerst seltene erste Ausgabe, die einzige mit den 2 Bl. 'An den Leser' und die einzige von Opitz autorisierte. An allen folgenden Ausgaben (ab 1634) war Opitz nicht beteiligt. "Dieses Grundbuch deutscher Verskunst, gesetzt nicht nur für das 17. Jahrhundert, brachte bei seinem Erscheinen mit einem Schlage Klarheit in das bis dahin verworrene Gewoge von Versuchen, Anläufen und unsicherem Tasten. Bis in das Kirchen- und Volkslied hinein, wo die alten rhythmischen Dichtformen sich in gewissem Umfang hielten, hat es regelnd gewirkt, vor allem aber die mit den Minnesängern verklungene deutsche Hochdichtung wieder geschaffen" (Wolfskehl). "Zunächst zögernd akzeptiert, setzte sich Opitz' kleine Schrift dank ihrer Klarheit und Kürze allmählich durch und erlebte erst nach einer Pause von 10 Jahren zahlreiche Neuauflagen. Wolfskehl nennt das Buch nicht zu Unrecht eines der folgenschwersten der deutschen Geistesgeschichte" (Dünnhaupt). Dieses Buch ist seltener als die beiden 'Gesamtausgaben' Opitz' von 1624 und 1625. Maltzahn bezeichnet es bereits 1875 als "sehr selten" und bei den wenigen in diesem Jahrhundert im Handel festzustellenden Exemplaren handelt es sich meist um dieselben Exemplare. – Wie bei den frühen Breslauer Drucken üblich, auf bräunlichem Papier, sonst gut und breitrandig.

Para el jesuita Garasse, la disociación de los sentimientos y las pasiones humanas de su fundamento en la religión, la posibilidad de una moral laica o de unos caracteres nacionales, eran posiciones intelectuales que el consideraba que se iniciaron con el Examen de ingenios de Huarte de San Juan y el Icon Animorum de Barclay, como herederos de una larga cadena en la que hiló en un mismo recorrido a ateos y librepensadores desde Demócrito hasta Briand. Los impíos eran ateos sin remedio, verdaderos maestros, entre quienes situaba como más recientes a Pomponazzi, Cardano y Vanini. Pero sus herederos, a los que calificaba de 'impíos, pero menos', los Beaux E … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vázquez de Leca, Mateo, and Bernardo de Toro]
[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 16 … [Click Below for Full Description]

This influential translation of Tasso's La Gerusalemme liberata "done into English Heroicall verse" by Edward Fairfax (ca. 1580–1635) was much lauded in its day. The epic romance tells a fantastical version of a First Crusade battle between Christians and Muslims over the city of Jerusalem, involving woman warrior Clorinda as well as the titular Godfrey and assorted knights, lovers, witches and mermaids, etc. Fairfax's rather freely interpreted rendition, which Graesse describes as the best translation of Tasso ever done in any language to that point, was the first complete English translation of the work, and was originally published in 1600. It appears here in its second edition, with the frontispiece portrait of Godfrey — not found in all copies — and with an ornate woodcut title-page border incorporating grapevines as well as cherubs and architectural elements.    Provenance: Title-page with early inked inscription: "Phill Wenman"; first page of "The Life of Godfrey of Boulogne" with early inked inscription: "Phi.

Leg. piena pergamena coeva con cornice a secco ai piatti, tasselli al dorso con titolo in oro su tassello. Ottimo esemplare. (3095) Bella edizione, da non confondere con le tante ristampe dozzinali che se ne fecero, di questo celebre testo rivolto contro l'influenza spagnola in Italia, pubblicato dal Boccalini che aveva trovato ambiente accogliente nella Repubblica di Venezia. Si tratta della terza edizione del Guerigli, con la prima parte recante però la data della quarta, in quanto il Guerigli vendeva gli esemplari sulla base delle "disponibilità dei fondi", combinando sovente date diverse. Si tratta della edizione in-8° grande (praticamente in-4°) su carta di ottima qualità, bei caratteri e ricchezza di fregi xilografici, da non confondere con le edizioni in-8° piccolo su carta scadente, tipograficamente molto più povere. La parte terza, come è noto, è un falso letterario ispirato allo stile del Boccalini, compilato dal modenese Girolamo Briani. Il B. aveva pubblicato la prima parte nell'ottobre del 1612, la seconda nell'ottobre del 1613, e aveva lasciato il mondo dei vivi il 29 novembre 1613 (all'età di 56 anni), senza aver scritto alcuna continuazione delle sue "Centurie", anche se pare fosse nelle sue intenzioni. L'opera era molto redditizia sul piano editoriale e diede quindi luogo a numerose contraffazioni e ristampe abusive. Cfr. L.

With woodcut printer's device on final page and several initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary full red morocco, lavishly gilt, with the arms of the Barberini family on an inlaid shield of different-coloured leather on both covers. All edges gilt. First edition, dedication copy. - One of the fundamental sources for the Ottoman conquest of Cyprus in 1571, when the Turkish forces invaded the island with 400 ships and some 100,000 men, massacring Nicosia's 20,000 inhabitants. Thus wrested from the Venetians, Cyprus would remain under Ottoman rule until 1878, when it was ceded to Britain as a protectorate; Ottoman sovereignty continued until the outbreak of World War I. - A. M. Graziani (1537-1611) studied the law at Padua before becoming secretary to Pope Sixtus and, in 1592, bishop of Amelia (in Umbria). Pope Clement VIII sent him as his nuncio to the Italian princes and states to unite them in a league against the Ottomans. Graziani having died in 1611, his account was published only posthumously: it was edited by his son Carolo, who dedicated the book to Cardinal Francesco Barberini, nephew of Pope Urban VIII. Barberini was created a cardinal in 1623; in 1627 he became librarian of the Vatican, and in 1632 vice-chancellor. The engraved architectural title (by Claudio Mellan after Antonio Pomeranci) shows History, "magistra vitae", seated atop an elaborate Baroque structure which incorporates Barberini's arms.

(EARLY NEW YORK CITY DOCUMENT - 1640)
NEW AMSTERDAM. New Amsterdam, the forerunner of New York City, was founded in 1624 largely by the Dutch, though it was ethnically diverse (Peter Minuit was German). In May 1624, the ship Nieu Nederlandt, chartered by the West India Company, arrived near Manhattan Island. The vessel had thirty families. A few families were left near New Haven, other people settled near the mouth of the Delaware River, some were left on Governor's Island, and the remaining families sailed up the Hudson River to form Fort Orange (now Albany). Later in 1624 and 1625, six additional ships left Holland with colonists, livestock and supplies. FORT AMSTERDAM. The fort was a stockade built by the Dutch on the southern tip of Manhattan around 1625. It was likely built by slaves and it was to protect the Hudson River from British and French infiltrations. It was torn down in 1790 after the American Revolution. THE WEST INDIA COMPANY (WIC). In 1621, the West India Company was granted a charter for a trade monopoly in the Caribbean, and it operated between West Africa (where it engaged in the slave trade) and the Americas. The company became very important in the Dutch settlement of the Americas. The company established many trade posts and colonies in the 1620s and 1630s. In 1629, the company began selling patroonships in New Netherlands. CORNELIUS VAN TIENHOVEN (1601-1656). Van Tienhoven was the secretary of New Netherlands from 1638 until shortly before his death, and was a very influential man. He served under both Kielt and Peter Stuyvesant. When he caused trouble in New Netherlands, the Dutch West … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANCHEZ, Tomas
Brixiae : Apud Bartholomeum Fontanam, 1624. 1624 Sanchez Marriage Jesuit LAW Sexuality Perversion Forbidden Books! FOLIOS A rare and controversial Catholic work on marriage. Due to the material dealing with sexuality and sexual perversion, this book was put on the Prohibited Book Index. Originally published in 1602, this book went through several editions and languages until the mid-18th-century. Thomas Sanchez, a 16th-century Jesuit, wrote many influential treatises on morality, though ‘Disputationum de Matrimonii’ is by far his most important. This book, ‘On Marriage’ was written in the attempts to surpass previous treatises on marriage and civil law that existed, but the oddities he writes about make it rather polarizing to readers. Sanchez tells of the most intimate secrets of wedlock – lessons on how to use the bride-bed without actually being in the bed! Sanchez also elaborates on the validity of an engagement as it pertains to the commitment to marriage and whether it pertains to consummation. Ultimately, Sanchez wanted to prove that matrimonial law and general contract law were two separate entities.
