PLANCIUS, Petrus
Amsterdam: D. R. M. Mathes, 1624. unbound. Map. Copper engraving. Image measures 11.5 x 19.5". This superb 1624 map by Petrus Plancius depicts the region if Israel, Palestine or the Holy Land extending from Tripoli south to Egypt. Oriented with north to the left, the map is beautifully detailed and identifies rivers, cities, regions, lakes, and political divisions during the time of Christ. The Dead Sea is included. One of the most ornate maps engraved by Baptista van Doetichum, this 2nd state replaces 'Petro Plancio' and 'Petrum Plantium' with D. R. M. Mathes. The whole is surrounded by 15 beautiful vignettes that depict various scenes of the Apostles. This is one of a series of six magnificent and rare Bible maps of the Holy Land, each surrounded by finely engraved vignettes of biblical scenes. These scenes were printed only in a few editions of the Planicius Bible, first issued in 1590 in Amsterdam by Laurens Jacobzon. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold and minor foxing. Petrus Plancius (1552 - 1622) was Flemish astronomer, cartographer and clergyman from West Flanders. After he moved to Amsterdam in 1585 and found himself in the center of European mapmaking, when he became a geographer and cartographer. He was appointed the chief mapmaker to the Dutch East India Company. Although he did not issue any atlases, he had a prolific output of over a hundred separate maps. As an important national figure, he obtained many mapmaking monopolies, one of which was a 12 year privilege to be the sole printer of maps using Mercator's proj … [Click Below for Full Description]

DONNE, John.
London: By A[ugustine]. M[athewes]., for Thomas Jones, 1624. London: By A[ugustine]. M[athewes]., for Thomas Jones,, 1624. Digested into 1. Meditations upon our humane condition. 2. Expostulations, and Debatements with God. 3. Prayers, upon the severall Occasions, to him. The second Edition. Narrow duodecimo (143 x 74 mm). Nineteenth-century vellum, green morocco label, place and date in ink at foot of spine. Without initial blank. Closely trimmed at outer margin, with occasional partial loss to outer edge of frame, last leaf with light water-stain, a good copy. Second edition, published in the same year as the rare first edition. The work contains "Nunc lento sonitu dicunt Morieris", with Donne's famous lines (often misremembered as being in verse): "No man is an Iland, intire of it self; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontory were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends, or of thine owne were; Any mans death diminishes mee, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tols, It tols for thee." The third edition was printed in 1626 so the second is the only edition printed in the same year as the first. Both are very scarce indeed, with only two copies of each recorded at auction in over a quarter of a century. The most recent of these were those of great collector of 17th century literature Robert Pirie, who had copies of each in the 2015 sale of his library (selling for $30,000 and $12,500 respectively.)

HERODIAN
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Herodian's History of Rome is a collection of eight books covering the period of the death of Marcus Aurelius to the beginning of Gordian III's reign. Herodian's account is first-person narrative of one of the most politically unsettled times of the Roman Empire. It was first published in 1502 and was edited by Henri Estienne using the Latin of Poliziano. Important names covered in Herodian's 'History' include Commodus, Julianus, Severus, and Pertinax, as well as the history of Zosimus. This 1624 edition was published in Lyon and printed in two column format with both the original Poliziano Latin and Greek in parallel. It retains the original Estienne edits and includes the histories of Zosimus. [Attributes: First Edition]

"Nous avons cité à l'année 1626 la première édition, imprimée à Franker par Uld. Balck. Celle-ci, qui est très augmentée, a été revue par D. B. Fullenius, professeur de mathématiques à l'Université de Franeker. Elle a été imprimée "Franekerae, ex officina Ulderici Balck, comme le portent les faux titres placés devant les parties 3, 4 et 5 de la Géométrie Metius" (Willems). Avec 3 planches dépliantes et de nombreuses figures gravées sur bois. III. : Deuxièmes éditions pour les deux titres, augmentées, illustrées de nombreuses gravures sur bois dans le texte.

Ce dernier (1642-1713) a été prêtre à Zürich. Le manuscrit, dont nous n'avons pas su déterminer s'il s'agissait d'une œuvre originale ou d'une copie d'un texte connu, comporte un schéma et un croquis. Intéressant ensemble.

DE CAUS, Jean Salomon
[Paris],: par S.de Caus Ingenieur et Architecte du Roy, 1624. [Paris],: par S.de Caus Ingenieur et Architecte du Roy,, 1624.. Original manuscript world map on an oval projection, pen and ink and colour wash on vellum. A magnificent manuscript map of the world, probably made for Cardinal Richelieu (1585-1642), the “father of the modern state system” (Kissinger), given the author and content. The map was drawn in 1624, the year in which Richelieu was made principal minister to Louis XIII of France, and de facto ruler of the country. He occupied this position until his death. Richelieu was keen to expand the power of the French navy, realising that it was essential to establishing France as a global power. He came from a maritime family, and wrote in a memorandum, “It has been till now a great shame that the king who is the eldest son of the Church is inferior in his maritime powers to the smallest prince in Christendom” (Knecht). His efforts began in the year this map was made, with the foundation of a Conseil de Marine to bring naval proposals before the king's council. At the time, there was no permanent fleet in the Atlantic and a handful of galleys in the Mediterranean; a decade later, there were three squadrons of round ships in the Atlantic, and one in the Mediterranean. Richelieu was spurred on in his efforts by the Protestant privateers blocking Catholic towns on the Atlantic coast during the Wars of Religion and the Huguenot Rebellions, and the subsequent loss of much of the Atlantic trade to the English and Dutch (James).

Scott, Thomas]
[London], 1624. [27]; [4],60pp. plus extra illustration tipped in at p.54. Small quarto. Later diced Russia, rebacked, gilt leather labels. Extremities rubbed. Some soiling to rear board. Bookplate of Frank Cutter Deering on front pastedown. Later notations on front fly leaf, contemporary ink notation crossed out on titlepage. Minor soiling. Engraved titlepage of second part trimmed closely at bottom, affecting last line of imprint. Very good. Two famous anti-Catholic tracts opposing the marriage of Prince Charles with the infanta of Spain. "[This work] purports to describe the report of the Spanish ambassador, Gondomar, to the council of state in Madrid on his return from his first embassy to England in 1618. The ambassador recounts the success of his efforts to subvert the English government, and describes with evident satisfaction the crowds that flocked to mass in his chapel in London. Relaxation of the recusancy laws, the banning of decent protestant preaching as 'puritan,' and the distribution of popish propaganda, Gondomar claims, have all been obtained by bribery of courtiers and the king's ministers. Gleefully Gondomar also describes the failure of Ralegh's expedition and his subsequent destruction, connived at by the unholy alliance of greedy courtiers, personal enemies, and outright papists which the Spaniard boasts of orchestrating....Apparently taken for a piece of genuine reportage at a time of deep, and not entirely unjustified, religious paranoia, the anonymously published pamphlet caused a furore, and prompted an energetic hunt for its author. Its prin … [Click Below for Full Description]

SARPI PIETRO.
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.

JUSTINIAN
1624. "Freedom is the natural ability of everyone to do what he likes, unless it is prohibited by law or by force." ― Justinian I A rare 17th-century law commentary on Justinian's 'Institutes' by Denis Godefroy. The 'Institutes of Justinian' is a portion of the full Corpus Juris Civilis, largely based on the Institutes of Gaius. Justinian sought to reform Roman law and education. This work was originally intended to be used by law students, but they were not solely used as a textbook, they actually carried legal weight ...as law! The Godefroy editions of this iconic work were influential in the law field well into the 20th-century. While Godefroy was known as a jurist, his fame came from his new edition of the 'Corpus', which went through dozens of editions through the 18th-century. In 530 A.D., Emperor Justinian I commissioned the rewriting of all Roman Law, which included case law, civil law, and a guide for helping juries interpret laws. Some of the most important laws that Justinian helped established were those that protected women from being forced into prostitution, and the severe punishment for rapists. These helped create a Byzantine culture that had not yet established a firm structure. [Attributes: First Edition]

RIBADENEYRA, Pedro de (1526-1611).
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 blancos 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.

RUSE, Henrick.
1624. First edition of a basic manual on fortification by the Dutch officer Henrick Ruse, or Baron von Rusenstein (1624-1679). He was the first to break with the Dutch tradition in fortification and to introduce new elements based on his personal experiences serving in several armies abroad. Herewith he came into conflict not only with Gerard Melder, the head of the fortifications in the city of Utrecht but also with Freitag in Germany. Melder answered with a manual of his own, and attacked Ruse in his Korte en klare instructie from 1658. Ruse, in his turn, retorted with the Aenwijsinghe der misverstanden van G. Melder, which is added here to the main work.Good copies; ad 1 with old owner's manuscript entry on title-page.Ad 1: Sloos, Warfare 08034; STCN (2 copies); ad 2: Sloos, Warfare 08039; STCN (3 copies, with slightly different fingerprint); cf.

PINDARUS
1624. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Pindar was a 5th-century BC Ancient Greek poet who is remembered for his poetic odes. These odes were written in honor of victors and champions of athletic games and contests. He grouped these odes into four distinct groups of games - Olympian, Pythian, Nemean, and Isthmian Games. These odes praised foot-races, chariot-races, wrestling matches, horse-races, and even flute-playing. Each of these odes begins with some sort of homage to a Greek god or Muse and then aligns the athletic champion with a mythological god or hero - quite the praise! This early 17th-century printing was published in Ebroduni, or Yverdon, Switzerland, and was edited by Henri Estienne. [Attributes: First Edition]

SANCHEZ, Tomas
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 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. 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 intities. This 1624 printing is the first edition printed by Thebaldi. [Attributes: First Edition]

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.

[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]

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.

Burton, Robert
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]
