Edition Originale de la première traduction latine du fameux roman espagnol "Diana Enamorada" (1564), "charmante suite de la 'Diane' de Montemayor, fort supérieure, contre l'usage, au livre qui lui a donné naissance" (Nodier).

L'un des artisans de la diffusion des romans espagnols dans les pays protestants, il avait déjà publié l'année précédente une traduction de "La Celestina" précédée par un important commentaire qui constitue la première monographie d'une œuvre littéraire espagnole publiée en Allemagne (cf.

        Purchas his Pilgrimes.

      London: William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone,, 1625–6. In five bookes… [Together with:] Purchas his Pilgrimage. Together 5 volumes (the supplemental Pilgrimage comprising the fifth volume), folio (330 × 207 mm). Uniformly bound in mid-18th-century calf, rebacked with the original decorative gilt spines laid down, tawny and olive-green morocco twin labels, blind roll tool border on sides, marbled edges and endpapers. Engraved additional title to vol. I (second issue, dated 1625; usually absent), 88 engraved maps (7 double-page or folding: the Virginia map in volume IV in Verner's state 7, that of China in volume III loosely inserted and on a slightly smaller sheet; 81 half-page in the text), plus the additional double-hemisphere map tipped in at p. 65 in volume 1 (see Sabin, p. 118), numerous illustrations, mostly woodcut, but some engraved. Late 17th-century ownership inscriptions of "Rob. Williams his booke" on title pages of volumes II and III; engraved armorial bookplates of [Sir] Charles Tennant (1823-1906), industrialist, who amassed a notable library at his estate known as The Glen, in Peeblesshire, Scottish Borders. Bindings professionally refurbished, a few light abrasions and shallow scratches, occasional light browning, a few marginal tears, some light offsetting of engraving onto letterpress, a few natural flaws and rust-holes, and the following minor defects: volume 1: H1 lower fore-corner torn away without loss of text, closed-tear in 2C4, old splash marks on 4Q2 (recto and verso); volume 2: old repaired tear at inner corner of 4Y just touching edge of map of Barbaria and Egypt, paper flaw at upper fore-corner of 6F2, paper flaw at fore-edge of 6H frayed with very minor loss to map of "Terra Sancta" on verso, map of Germany (6L3 verso) just shaved to neat line along outer edge, closed-tear in 6Y along lower platemark of map of Europe (but with no loss), small hole in 8P3; volume 4: repaired closed-tear at lower margin of 5V6, paper flaw at lower fore-corner of 6C3 and lower edge of 7D6, printing flaw at edge of map of England (8B2 verso), faint dampstaining and a small stain on double-page map of China. A very good set, with the blank leaf R4 in volume 1 (frequently wanting). First edition of Purchas his Pilgrimes, with the engraved title-page (often lacking) dated 1625, the map of Virginia in vol. IV in the 10th state according to Burden, with the whole engraved area present (often trimmed with loss). With the fourth edition of the Pilgrimage, issued concurrently as a supplement, in the usual issue with the first quire reset, the title beginning Purchas (the other setting has Purchase), and the added dedication to King Charles. The fourth edition of the Pilgrimage is usually considered the best; first published in 1613, it gives Purchas's account of the various religions encountered throughout the world. Together, this is the desired state of the complete set of Purchas's important collection of travel and exploration narratives from ancient times up to and including the recent accounts of Virginia by John Smith. This is a lovely set in 18th-century calf. "The Pilgrimes (as it is usually known) was the culmination of almost twenty years' collecting oral and written accounts of travels in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. It was based in part on Hakluyt's remaining manuscripts, which Purchas had acquired about 1620. (Their subsequent history is unknown.) The result was a four-volume folio that took more than three years to print; at the time of its publication it was the largest book ever seen through the English press. The Pilgrimes combined editing with editorializing to comprise the bulkiest anti-Catholic tract of the age and the last great English work of geographical editing for almost a century. Its four volumes traversed the world from the ancient Near East to the latest English colonies. The first volume comprised the travels of ancient kings, patriarchs, apostles, and others; comparative histories of languages, religion, church government, and 'letters'; circumnavigations of the globe; and English voyages to Africa, Persia, India, and Asia. The second volume extended the collection of travel narratives to encompass Africa and the Near East, while the third covered China, Russia, 'Tartary', Iceland, Greenland, the north-west passage, and the Arctic. Purchas's coverage of European exploration and settlement in the Americas began at the end of the third volume, but made up the bulk of the fourth, which treated South and North America, and ended with English settlements in Bermuda, Virginia, New England, and Newfoundland. Purchas edited oral accounts and manuscripts (many from Hakluyt's papers), translated texts in classical and foreign languages, and reprinted previously published works. His only original contributions came in the form of various editorials scattered through the volumes on, among other things, Solomon's voyage to Ophir, Pope Alexander's bulls of donation of 1493, the 'iniquitie' of papal power, the history of Europe, and 'Virginia's Verger', an ideological justification for English settlement in Virginia in the wake of the Powhatan uprising of 1622. Since the nineteenth century Purchas's editorial methods have always been contrasted unfavourably with Hakluyt's, though his influence (and the European dissemination of his works) were arguably much greater. Unlike Hakluyt, Purchas attempted to construct an argument upon geographical and historical evidence that was cosmopolitan, pan-European, global, and transhistorical. The militantly theological purpose of his works may partly account for the contempt and neglect into which he largely fell in the centuries after John Locke even-handedly advised in 1703 that for 'books of travel … the collections made by our countrymen, Hakluyt and Purchas, are very good'" (ODNB). "Today, Pilgrimes remains an indispensable resource for geographers, anthropologists, and historians alike, providing, among other things, prime sources for the early history of the Jamestown colony, and perhaps the best defence ever composed to justify England's claims to North America" (James William Kelly in Speake ed., Literature of Travel and Exploration, p. 985).

        Novelas exemplares.

      Huberto Antonio 1625 - In-8 (167 x 100 mm) de 8 ff.n.ch., 608 pp. ; vélin à rabats, titre à l'encre au dos (reliure ancienne). Rius, I, 233 ; Heredia, II, 2641 ; Salvá, 1747 ; Losada Goya, 189. Rare édition ancienne de l'autre chef d’œuvre de Cervantès. Elle a été établie d'après celle donnée à Bruxelles, en 1614, par Huberto Antonio et Roger Velpio, qui reproduisait sans modifications le texte de l'originale. Les Novelas exemplares, publiées pour la première fois en 1613 à Madrid chez Juan de la Cuesta, connurent, comme le Quijote, un succès extraordinaire et tiennent une place fort importante dans l’histoire de la littérature espagnole. Ce recueil contribua à lancer la mode du "récit espagnol" en Europe. Ce genre était alors nouveau en Espagne; on n'avait guère fait que traduire en castillan quelques-unes des productions les plus renommées de ce genre en italien ou en français. Cervantes peut donc se vanter à juste titre d'avoir ouvert la voie à ses compatriotes, et, sur les conteurs italiens et français, il a l'avantage, diront les critiques de son temps et de siècles qui suivront, que ces opuscules sont d'une moralité plus haute. Ces nouvelles sont espagnoles aussi par les peintures de mœurs; il montre les diverses classes de la société de son pays, sous leurs traits les plus caractéristiques. Cet ouvrage séduisit les plus grands esprits de l’époque et Spinoza, dont la bibliothèque était peu fournie, en possédait un exemplaire de l'édition de Séville, 1627. Rare et recherché, comme toutes les éditions des Novelas, publiées dans la première moitié du XVIIe siècle. Papier un peu bruni, des rousseurs, très bon exemplaire cependant [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Jornada dos Vassalos da Coroa de Portugal, pera se recuperare a Cidade do Salvador, na Bahya de todos os Santos, tomada pollos Olandezes, a oito de Mayo de 1624. & recuperada ao primeiro de Mayro 1625

      Rare contemporary Portuguese account of the Dutch conquest in May 1624 of the principal Brazilian city, Salvador da Bahia, a brief victory that was reversed less than a year later by the largest armada ever sent to the Americas. This Dutch attempt to establish a colony in Brazil was the first episode in a 30-year war with the Portuguese and Spanish that had a lasting effect on the balance of European powers and colonial holdings. As Portuguese-language accounts are notably more rare than their Dutch counterparts, Guerreiro's history is a valuable record of the Portuguese interpretation of events. His Jornada was published just 6 months after what has been called the "Day of the Vassals" (May 1, 1625), when the Dutch surrendered to a force of 52 ships and more than 12,000 men; according to Borba, it is "One of the classic source books for the recapture of Bahia" (I.380). The Dutch had long had commercial interests in Brazil, and had established a number of trading networks in the early days of Portuguese rule. However, during the Spanish Captivity of Portugal (1580-1640), a new policy allowed Dutch merchants found in the newly Spanish colonies to be detained. Taking umbrage at this, and convinced that capturing Salvador would not be difficult, the Dutch launched an expeditionary force in December 1623 that included 26 sailing ships, 450 guns and 3300 men under Admiral Jacob Willekens and the notorious Vice-Admiral Piet Hein. Arriving in the Bahia de Todos os Santos on 8 May 1624, the fleet landed a few miles from Salvador. The Dutch troops, under the command of Jan Van Dorth, entered the town early on the morning of May 10, 1624, at which point the Portuguese governor, Diogo de Mendonça, swiftly surrendered. The Dutch victory caused an uproar in Spain and Portugal--King Philip IV vowed publicly that he would personally make the journey to Brazil to retake Salvador (letters from the king are transcribed in chapter 31 of the Jornada). While the king did not personally go to war, thousands of Portuguese vassals rallied under Dom Manuel de Menezes, who joined with the Spanish Armada under the general Dom Fadrique de Toledo y Osório. A massive fleet of 52 ships, 1185 guns and 12,566 men--second only in size to the famous armada of 1588--set sail for Brazil, reaching Salvador on Easter Eve 1625. Reinforcements arrived from Rio de Janeiro, Espirito Santo and Pernambuco in early April. The Dutch were demoralized and capitulated on 30 April 1625, the day after the Portuguese entered the town. Guerreiro proudly recounts the circumstances and major players involved in both the Dutch attack and the Portuguese victory. Bartolomeu (or Bartolameu) Guerreiro S.J. (1564-1642) published a volume of sermons (Lisbon, 1624), as well as a substantial Jesuit martyrology, Gloriosa coroa d'esforçados religiosos da compenhia de Jesu (Lisbon, 1642). This copy preserves the rare engraved folding plate depicting the Portuguese fleet besieging Bahia, signed by Benedictus Mealius, which is notable for including a city plan of Salvador alongside the ubiquitous depiction of advancing warships. "The Iornada dos Vassalos has for many years been considered a rare work ... Copies containing the plate are rarer still, and this plate, in point of fact, is always very faint" (Borba I.380); in the present copy, however, this plate is well printed and perfectly legible. Borba notes that there are two issues of the Jornada, without remarking on the priority of either. The present copy is the issue with the "taxa" printed on the verso of the title page (reading, "Taxase este livro ...") and sometimes containing an "advertencia" slip pasted on the verso of the "Prologo" or inserted at that point of the text. The "advertencia", however, is not present in many copies of this issue (e.g., the present copy, the BN Portugal copy, the copy of in the Coleção Rodolfo Garcia at the BN Brazil, etc.).

La prima raffigurazione si ha nel 1538 con la carta di Egidio Tschudi, che rappresenta la Rezia in modo sommario, nella sua grande carta della Svizzera. Successivamente Stumps esegue una carta silografica della Svizzera centrale nel 1548 "Rhetia, die zehend LandtafelÖ".

        Regola delli Cinqve Ordini d’Architettvra Di M Iacomo Barozzio da Vignola: Libro primo, et originale

Folio (380 x 255mm). 51 leaves. Pagination: I-XXXVI (including plates III-XXXVI), +17 non. num. plates. Full-page engraved architectural title-leaf includes the arms of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, to whom the work is dedicated, and the half-length portrait of Vignola in aedicule facing to the viewer’s right and holding a compass, flanked by muses of geometry and math. 36 full-page copper-plate engraved plates with captions, 2 folding, depicting portals, lintels, arcades, mantles, capitals, and other parts and orders of classical architecture, including the two folding plans for the palace of the Cardinal Farnese which Vignola had been redesigning since 1558. Plates II and III are full-page engraved letters to Cardinal Farnese and Pope Pius IV respectively, and are most interesting for their typographic layout. Vellum boards, spine titled REGOLA DEL ARCHITETT. DI I. BAROZZIO 1570, 1617 and library label obscuring the rest, in custom cloth slipcase; (lightly stained rear cover, some closely trimmed margins and offsetting but images intact and are highly fine impressions). Nineteenth-century rubber stamp of the Bibliotheca Heberiana to front flyleaf. Richard Heber (1774-1833) was a ripe scholar and bibliophile with a massive personal library, sold in 1834. Mid-century ownership inscription of Prof. James van der Pool of the Avery Architecture Library (Columbia) to front pastedown. Rare later Roman edition of Vignola’s famous Canon work on the “Five Orders of Architecture.” This copy is the de Rossi edition that was printed circa 1625 and is the first of two that de Rossi produced; the second appeared about ten years later. As the imprint details lack in so many of the Italian editions of the Vignola Regola, it is somewhat difficult to determine definitive dates of issue throughout the late-sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Earlier editions of this text appeared almost consecutively in Rome and Venice, with the first in 1562 and the latest in 1695. Vignola’s “Five Orders of Architecture” in all had over 250 editions; it is one of the most successful architecture textbooks ever written. The ample reprinting of this work allowed Vignola’s work to pave the way for a new theory of architecture, one based on practicability. Vignola, while influenced by his contemporaries like Sebastiano Serlio and a burgeoning Baroque aesthetic, was focused on studying the classical monuments. He believed that by their interpretation he was able to pass on fine antique design principles through knowledge. The title contains the Vignola’s self-confident portrait, as one who famously states, “It is always necessary to know what we want our eyes to see.” Vignola was one of the major architects who brought about the sixteenth-century Mannerist movement known for its bizarre and fanciful qualities. In comparison, this work on the “Five Orders” is more dry and astute; it is regarded as a means and not an end to Vignola’s numerous artistic contributions. Rare later Roman edition of Vignola’s famous Canon work on the “Five Orders of Architecture.” This copy is the de Rossi edition that was printed circa 1625 and is the first of two that de Rossi produced; the second appeared about ten years later. As the imprint details lack in so many of the Italian editions of the Vignola Regola, it is somewhat difficult to determine definitive dates of issue throughout the late-sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Earlier editions of this text appeared almost consecutively in Rome and Venice, with the first in 1562 and the latest in 1695.

This contemporary of his life is crucial for writing what would become the Veri and ad usque tempora NOTRA continuati: indeed, he offers in this book a political-historical study of the Reformation through the portraits of religious figures (Popes) and policies (emperors) of the time. Due to its position in favor of Protestants, it is impossible to consider her about a perfectly objective eye; Nevertheless, the methodological quality of his work, who was a contemporary and an actor of the reported events, making it a reference for the history of the Reformation. Beautiful copy, richly illustrated. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, revue par Oseas Schadaeus (1586-1626) qui fut chroniqueur et éditeur d'ouvrages historiques. Cet ouvrage parut pour la première fois en 1555 sous le titre De statu religionis et reipublicae Carolo Quinto, Caesare Commeentarii. Texte en gothique sur deux colonnes. L'ouvrage est illustré de 25 portraits hors-texte de papes et d'empereurs, de bandeaux et de culs-de-lampe ainsi que d'une figure in-texte à la page 747. Titre frontispice pour chacune des quatre parties en plus du premier représentant deux allégories, l'une de la foi, l'autre de la force, encadrant le titre complet de l'ouvrage. Dans la partie supérieure, une femme ailée dotée du sceptre et du globe impérial chevauche le monde, accompagnée de la devise « Germania domitrix gentium ». Reliure de l'époque en plein vélin, dos lisse présentant un titre manuscrit de l'époque en tête. Dos légèrement fendu en deux endroits en tête et fendillé en queue. Petite brûlure avec infime manque de texte entre les colonnes 498 et 499, quelques petites mouillures en marge inférieure sur certains feuillets sans gravité, très petite brûlure sans manque notable sur le portrait de Grégoire XIV entre les colonnes 380 et 381. Un index tardif des portraits monté sur onglet en tête du volume présentant une déchirure sans manque. Il s'agit de l'une des nombreuses rééditions du De statu religionis et reipublicae, œuvre majeure de Jean Sleidan (v.1506-1556), historiographe luxembourgeois. Employé du cardinal du Bellay dans les années 1540, il participe aux diètes de Ratisbonne et de Spire et, rallié aux idées protestantes, il s'installe à Strasbourg pour échapper aux mesures de François Ier prises à l'encontre des protestants. Cette période de sa vie est déterminante pour l'écriture de ce qui deviendra le Veri et ad nostra tempora usque continuati : en effet, il propose dans cet ouvrage une étude politico-historique de la Réforme à travers les portraits des figures religieuses (papes) et politiques (empereurs) de l'époque. En raison de sa prise de position en faveur des protestants, il est impossible de considérer son propos d'un œil parfaitement objectif ; néanmoins la qualité méthodologique de son travail, lui qui fut un contemporain et un acteur des événements rapportés, en fait un outil de référence pour l'histoire de la Réforme et de l'Europe sous Charles Quint. Bel exemplaire, richement illustré.

II border of six woodcuts, repeated throughout text. Collation: A^6(-A1, blank) B-V^6 2A^8 2B-2N^6(-N6, blank); ?^4(-?1, blank) -2 ^4 3 ^2 B-2Z^4 3A^6. 4to. The first complete edition in English of Boccaccio's Decameron, the second edition of volume I, the first edition of volume II. The translator is unknown, though John Florio has been suggested. The Stationer's Register records a 1587 translation by John Wolfe, but no copies survive. Boccaccio's masterpiece was influential on the authors of Elizabethan England - at least fifty-four English plays, including several works by Shakespeare, have plots derived from the Decameron. The two volumes were first issued in 1620, both under the title The Decameron. When the first volume was reprinted in 1625, "No complementary edition of the second volume was published. Possibly because, when the present was called for, Jaggard was still able to supply copies of the first edition" (Pforzheimer). Three years after printing the first edition, Jaggard went on to print the First Folio of Shakespeare (1623).
