        DE IVSTO IMPERIO LVSITANORVM ASIATICO.

      - Auctore Fr. Seraphino Freitas Lusitano in Pinciana Academia vespertina in Sacris Canonibus Cathedra antecessore ê Merce narijs mínimo. Ad Philippum IIII. potentissimum Hispaniarum, & Indiarum Monarcham. Cum Priuilegijs Castellae, & Lusitania. Vallisoleti: [Valladolid] Ex Officina Hieronymi Morillo, Alma Vniuersittis Typographi. Anno M. DC. XXV. [1625] In 8.º (de 19,5x14,5 cm) com [viii], 190, [xxviii] fólios. Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexível, com título manuscrito junto da coifa superior. Folha de rosto com impressão a negro e vermelho, apresentado o brasão de Filipe IV de Espanha, III de Portugal. Exemplar com leves falhas marginais recuperadas em dois fólios: - fl. 170 com leve falha sem perda de texto à cabeça; - fl. 175 com perda do título genérico da obra e da numeração do fólio. Apresenta ainda um ex-libris armoriado, sobreposto a outro anteriormente existente, ambos no verso da pasta anterior da encadernação ou seja diretamente no interior do pergaminho. Obra jurídica sobre o direito jurisdicional e comercial dos reis de Portugal sobre os mares do Oriente e da América. Escrita no período da governação filipina pelo grande jurista português Frei Serafim de Freitas o qual refuta a obra a Holanda em 1608. 1ª edição. Palau 94957 Esta obra refuta o «Mare Liberum» da autoria do famoso jurista holandês Hugo Grocio. A obra de Grocio foi escrita inicialmente para tentar legitimar juridicamente, um famoso acto de pirataria efetuado em 1603 por corsários holandeses ao serviço da companhia das Índias Orientais. Os holandeses que à época estavam em guerra com o rei de Espanha e Portugal, assaltaram e aprisionaram a famosa nau portuguesa Santa Catarina, no estreito de Singapura, quando esta se dirigia de Macau para Malaca, vetustamente carregada com mercadorias exóticas. Esta nau, comandada por Sebastião Serrão, apresentava 1500 toneladas de porte e transportava setecentos tripulantes e passageiros. A famosa e cobiçada carga da nau Santa Catarina foi vendida em leilão na Holanda atingindo somas astronómicas para a época, arrecadando o dobro do capital da própria Companhia das Índias. Contudo, parte dos associados da companhia Índias Orientais considerou ilegítima esta ação corsária holandesa, demarcou-se da situação, vendendo as suas ações da companhia e recusando-se a receber dividendos (200%). Toda esta polémica iniciou uma grande discussão europeia em torno dos direitos adquiridos pelos portugueses com os descobrimentos, as várias bulas papais concedidas a favor do «Mare Clausum» e sobre tudo sobre a livre circulação de mercadorias e capitais no Mundo, influenciando assim de forma capital o «Direito das Gentes», a economia global no mundo de então. A própria companhia das Índias Orientais encomendou a Grocio um parecer jurídico sobre o «Direito de Presa» e a liberdade dos holandeses navegarem nos mares reclamados pelos portugueses. O parecer foi escrito em 1605, mas ficou inédito até 1868. Deste extraiu-se para impressão em 1608, apenas o capitulo XII, que trata sobre a liberdade dos mares «Mare Liberum». Em 1635 John Selden publica a obra Mare Clausum Seu De Dominio Maris, defendendo os interesses ingleses, quando os seus monarcas quiseram proibir os pescadores holandeses de utilizar a suas águas para pescar. Assim a polémica ganhou nova importância. O enquadramento histórico e político na época do domínio filipino não era de todo favorável à posição portuguesa como potência comercial e marítima. Verificava-se um acentuado declínio político e comercial, devido fundamentalmente ao facto dos interesses políticos e militares de Portugal e Espanha serem frequentemente antagónicos. Portugal estava umbilicalmente ligado à coroa Espanhola pelo rei, não podendo por isso utilizar a velha aliança inglesa como instrumento político fundamental para proteger o seu império comercial da cobiça holandesa, francesa e até inglesa. Os três monarcas do período filipino foram quase sempre condicionados por intermináveis revoluções interna

Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs, 1669.

      Folio. Pp. (viii), 456, index (16) including engraved frontispiece and title printed in red and black. With one folding engraved map, 20 double page engraved plates, 4 larger folding engraved plates and 71 half page engravings in the text. Contemporary full speckled calf, spine with seven raised bands, richly decorated in gilt and with title label (slightly chipped). Binding rubbed and top of spine slightly chipped. First edition of this monumental and early illustrated work on Japan compiled by the Dutch minister Arnold Montanus (1625-83). He based the work on journals from the Dutch East India Company as well as from writings of Jesuit missionaries. It's a narrative about the Japanese history, the people and their customs, religion, trade etc. seen through the eyes of European visitors who were very limited at the time. For more than 200 years Japan was almost completely isolated form the rest of the world. The Dutch, who had established themselves on the island of Deshima outside Nagasaki, were the only foreigners (except for some Chinese) who were allowed to trade with Japan during this period (1641-1854). They had to renew the permission each year, for which they had to send a delegation from Deshima to the Shogun in Yedo. The reports of the visits between 1649 and 1661 provided Montanus with important material. Montanus book has been critized for not being scholarly enough and about the authenticity of the plates. (See article by Isabella H. van Eeghen). However, the plate of Deshima is acknowledged and it's the earliest known illustration of the renowned island. A beautiful copy of an impressive work.

      Published: Monachii : N. Henrici, 1625. - 1625 Paul Laymann Theologia Moralis Witchcraft Occult Witches EXORCISMS Torture EXTREMELY Rare Jesuit None Found Worldwide Paul Laymann (1574 – 1635) was an Austrian Jesuit and important moralist. The most important of his thirty-three literary productions is a compendium of moral theology Theologia Moralis in quinque libros partita (Munich, 1625), of which a second and enlarged edition in six volumes appeared in 1626 at the same place. Until the second quarter of the eighteenth century it was edited repeatedly (latest edition, Mainz, 1723), and was extensively used as a textbook in seminaries. We do not find another example of this same printing anywhere else worldwide! This title was the most important production of moral theology during the early 17th-century! It was used extensively as a textbook in seminaries throughout Europe. Laymann makes proposals in this work for milder treatment of those who have been accused of witchcraft. Theologia Moralis is truly a book written in defense against the extreme severity and torture against the accused.

        Hugonis Grotii De jure belli ac pacis libri tres, in quibus jus naturae & gentium, item juris publici praecipua explicantur. Cum annotatis auctoris, ejusdemque dissertatione de Mari libero, ac Libello singulari de aequitate, indulgentia, & facilitate, nec non Joann. Frid. Gronovii v.c. notis in totum opus De jure belli ac pacis.

      Groundwork for Grotius? De jure belli ac pacis (On the Law of War and Peace) was laid in the 16th century by Spanish theologians Francisco de Vitoria, Francisco Suarez, Bartolomé de las Casas, and Ginés de Sepulveda as they struggled with the legitimacy of making war on the Indians of the New World. Grotius saw his book published for the first time in 1625 at Paris: It studies the legality of war and immediately established itself as a foundational work on the topic. Modern scholars regard it as foundational in international law. This edition contains added scholarship from Joannes Fredericus Gronovius (1611-71) and Jean Barbeyrac (1674-1744). In addition to De jure belli ac pacis the reader will find two other important Grotius tracts at the rear of the volume: Mare liberum and Libellus singularis de aequitate, indulgentia et facilitate, meaning the volume treats not just of law of war, but natural law, international law, maritime law, and law of the sea. There are two issues of this edition, the other having ?Ex Officina Wetsteniana? on the title-page in place of ?Apud Janssonio-Waesbergio.? In both editions the title-page is printed in black and red, and of course, they have the same pagination. The work has side- and shouldernotes, an engraved portrait of Grotius, and an added engraved title-page.

        Le imagini de gli dei de gli antichi del signor Vincenzo Cartari, reggiano, nelle quali sono descritte la religione de gli antichi, li idoli, riti & ceremonie loro ... et con l'espositione in epilogo di ciascheduna & suo significato.

      Venetia : Appresso Euangelista Deuchino Small 4to (19.5 cm; 7.75"). [14] ff., 418 pp., fold. plate; illus.. 1625 First published in 1556, Cartari's work brings together a wealth of information about Classical mythology: idols, rites, ceremonies, and practices. It was first issued with illustrations in 1571, those being by Bolognino Zaltieri, and the many in-text engravings of this edition are derived from his. Although this was not the most rigorous of studies, its engaging style, its being in Italian rather than Latin, and its illustrations have made Cartari's Imagini popular and given it a long and successful run of editions. Provenance: Pressure-stamp of private collector Colossio Solari of Cremona. Brunet labels this "une des plus belle editions de cet ouvrage. Mid-19th-century quarter cloth with marbled paper sides. Some staining; some gatherings probably supplied or damaged and now tipped to stubs. Light waterstaining here and there. A less than perfect copy priced very much according to its faults and still a worthy copy for an impoverished collector or a person who just doesn't need "perfect"!

In Gestalt einer Tierfabel beschreibt SPANGENBERG satirisch Verhältnisse und Missstände seiner Zeit, bezieht sich aber in erster Linie auf die Rosenkreuzer, was schon das Pseudonym andeutet. 1607 geplant, als J.V.ANDREAE sich in Straßburg aufhielt und möglicherweise mit SPANGENBERG, der seit 1577 dort lebte, in Kontakt kam, lt. Vorwort 1617, zur Zeit des Höhepunkts der Rosenkreuzerei fertiggestellt, wurde SPANGENBERGs „satirischer Roman gegen die Rosenkreuzer“ (Gilly) erst acht Jahre später veröffentlicht (vgl. ausführlich: Schäfer, op.cit., passim).

        Profetie dell'Abbate Gioachino. Et di Anselmo Vescovo di Marsico. Con l'imagini in dissegno, intorno a Pontefici passati, e c'hanno a venire

      1625 - [2]-104-[1] pages In Padova, Pietro Paolo Tozzi, 1625, in-4, [2]-104-[1] pages, vélin ivoire postérieur, Signatures : [n.s.]2 ; A-N4. Gravure sur cuivre au titre et 34 grands bois dans le texte : le premier représente Joachim recevant la révélation, les 2 suivants les roues prophétiques, 30 servent d'emblème et d'explication aux prophéties et le dernier illustre l'oracle turc. Belle édition bilingue padouane des prédictions concernant la succession des papes, attribuées au célèbre moine Joachim de Flore pour les 15 premières, et à Anselme, évêque de Marsico, pour les 15 dernières. L'ouvrage ouvre sur la Vie de Joachim par le franciscain Gabriel Barrio ; suivent les prophéties en latin et en italien, la célèbre prophétie turque les notes de Pascal Regiselmo. Né vers 1135 en Calabre, Joachim fut abbé d'un monastère franciscain pendant 14 ans avant de fonder l'Ordre de Flore, d'inspiration cistercienne, et de se retirer pour la vie contemplative jusqu'à sa mort en 1202. Ses prophéties apocryphes lui viennent tant d'une étude approfondie de la Bible et de ses "verbes mystiques", que des moments d'illumination qui lui révélèrent des choses jusqu'alors cachées. Il envisage l'histoire du monde en trois âges : l'âge de la terre, qui correspond à l'âge de l'Ancien Testament, depuis la création jusqu'à la naissance du Christ ; l'âge de l'eau, celui du Nouveau Testament, qui de la naissance du Christ, s'étend jusqu'en 1260 et figure l'époque des clercs ; enfin, l'âge du feu, c'est-à-dire l'époque des moines et de l'intelligence spirituelle. Joachim prédisait ainsi de grands bouleversements dans les institutions religieuses : ses prophéties furent condamnées lors du concile de Latran en raison de leur dimension anti-pontificale et apocalyptique. Elles furent finalement mises en circulation après le pontificat de Boniface VIII ; la seconde série, attribuée à Anselme, lui fut ajointe par la suite. Annotations anciennes au titre et en marge d'une page. Liste manuscrite au milieu du XIXe siècle sur une garde blanche finale : elle contient la liste des papes depuis Grégoire XV (mort en 1623) jusqu'à Pie IX (1846). Feuillets légèrement salis, mouillure pâle en tête des premiers feuillets. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Questionum Medicarum Paradoxarum & Endoxarum

      Ludovici Regis, Basel 1625 - FIRST EDITION OF THIS ESSAY ON ANATOMY FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [xvi] 277 [xi]. Roman and italic letter, printer device on t-p, historiated and floriated initials, ornamental tail pieces, age foxing. A very good copy in a beautiful contemp rigid vellum over board, flat spine gilt with four compartments, double gilt-tooled frames with corner fleurons and central oval ornamental piece, gilt edges, ms. author's name and date on spine, remains of silk green ties. First edition of this essay on anatomy, particularly blood circulation with a useful index at end. Felix Platter's work is a gathering of medical questions divided under five subjects headings: "Physiologicae", "Pathologicae", "Simeioticae", "Hygieinae", and "Therapeuticae". The first (and longest) section answers a wide variety of questions about the human body, from birth (including removal of the umbilical chord) to death (including why corpses sometimes take on a yellowish color) with many tips in between, even a short discussion of 'why the fingers are pale' and suggesting exposure to sunlight, but warning against sunburn. The final four sections deal more with sickness, symptoms, hygiene including diet, and nutrition as well as women's health, and finally a small collection of cures including the use of precious stones to draw illnesses from the blood. With such a wide variety of topics in a question-and-answer format, the book was probably intended for use as a household reference guide for the contemporary ailing humanist. Felix Platter ( 1536-1614) was the son of Thomas Platter, a well-know printer. He is known today for his medical activity and his work on human pathology, especially 'De corporis humani structura', which made him famous. He was a faithful disciple of Eustachi, Fallopio, and above all, of Vesalius, from whose De humani corporis fabrica much of his own writing was derived. From his books and especially from public autopsies, which he performed in Basel, he soon acquired a reputation as an important anatomist. As a practicing pediatrician he was ahead of his time, and his works were authoritative until the beginning of the eighteenth century.(C. Coulston Gillipie). The work is annotated based on the studies and experience of Felix's younger brother, Thomas Platter (1574-1628), anatomical and botanical professor at Basel where he practiced medicine. He also wrote a journal where he describes his travel through Western Europe (France, Spain, England and Netherlands), a sort of humanistic and initiatory journey with several hand-drawings and plans. Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie, a French historian, wrote an important work on the Platter's family.

        Northeast North America, ‘New Scotlande’].

      - The 2nd (of 2) states, from Samuel Purchas, Purchase his Pilgrimes (London: William Stansby, 1625). A fine example of William Alexander’s’ ‘New Scotlande’, the first broadly accurate English map of Northeast North America. This highly important map is the first broadly accurate English map to focus on both New England and Atlantic Canada. It was devised by the Scottish colonial proprietor William Alexander in order to promote migration and investment in his New World domains. The map is one of the most important original graphic artifacts pertaining to the early period of English colonization in the North America. The map embraces the all of the area of the continent roughly from the east of the present day location of Montreal and from eastern Massachusetts in the south, northward to Labrador. While far from scientific, Alexander’s map is amazingly accurate for the time, with all key features taking on a form familiar to the modern viewer. The St. Lawrence Valley (modern Quebec), the Gulf of St. Lawrence (labeled here as the ‘Golfe of Canada’) and the outlines of the Canadian Maritimes are generally taken from Samuel de Champlain’s groundbreaking Carte geographique de la Nouvelle France (1612), while the depiction of Newfoundland is improved, based on recent English sources, including John Mason. The depiction of New England is largely taken from English sources, such as John Smith, and is a dramatic improvement over Champlain’s coverage of the region. Important geographical features are clearly defined, including Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Boston Bay and the Charles River, Cape Ann, Casco Bay and the Kennebec and Penobscot Rivers. Further north, the map also correctly locates Placentia Bay and the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland and the approximate position of Prince Edward Island (although it is not named). The map also features the key settlements of New France, being ‘Kebek’ (Quebec City, founded by the French in 1608) and ‘Tadousac’, a French trading post founded in 1600 at the mouth of the Saguenay River. Most interestingly, the map features a wealth of new and historically significant nomenclature. It is the first printed map to label Nova Scotia (as ‘New Scotlande’) and Cape Cod. Alexander divided New Scotlande into two provinces, ‘Alexandria’ (modern Nova Scotia) and ‘Caledonia’ (modern New Brunswick), which were, in turn, divided into baronies for prospective investors. In ‘New Englande’, Alexander depicted the lands designated to the 20 named proprietors of the Council of New England, a colonization company formed in 1620 (the number of principals of which had been halved from 40 to 20, in 1623). The comparatively infertile territory which lay between ‘New Englande’ and ‘Caledonia’ (corresponding approximately to eastern Maine) is shown to be sprinkled with Scottish names (ex. ‘Forthe’, ‘Clyde’, ‘Twede’) in an effort to make the area seem more sympathetic to potential Scottish stakeholders. William Alexander (c.1567-1640), the 1st Earl of Stirling, was a longtime acolyte of the Stuarts, the ruling family of Scotland. In 1603, the Stuarts additionally assumed the crown of England and over the coming years Alexander and King James I’s other Scottish courtiers assumed great power and influence in London. In 1621, James granted Alexander charter title to all of the land between the St. Croix River and the Gulf of St. Lawrence (essentially all of the modern day Canadian Maritimes). When the Council of New England pointed out that Alexander’s award clashed with their grant (which included all of the Atlantic Seaboard from 40 to 48 degrees North), James duly annulled the Council’s title to the eastern part of its territories in favor of his old Scottish friend. Alexander included the first edition his map within his pamphlet, An Encouragement to Colonies (London: William Stansby, 1624), an articulate marketing tool in which he sought to promote his New World venture. His well written prose and groundbreaking map soon

(n14). - Malebranche, Nicolas, 1638-1715. His major work, begun in 1668, was De La Recherche de la Verite. It ran to several volumes and was revised constantly. Like Descartes, Malebranche rejected sensible qualities and held that things are to be judged solely by the ideas that represent them to us according to their intelligible essence. God was seen as the sole efficient casue and natural causes as only "occasional" causes - hence occaisionalism, as Malebranche's system is called. .

        Elzevier-Sammlung von Fritz W. Weddigen. The Weddigen Elzevier-Collection. Gleichzeitig die Bibliographie aller jemals erschienenen elzevierschen "Republiken" in allen bekannten Varianten, insgesamt 81 Titel in 78 Bänden, und zahlreiche weitere Drucke des Hauses Elzevier, darin enthalten eine kleine Teilsammlung "Grotiana", sowie die zugehörige Sekundärliteratur. Übrigens liegen die allermeisten Bände in meist gut erhaltenen zeitgenössischen Pergamenteinbänden und nicht, wie es auf dem Höhepunkt der Elzevieromanie üblich war, in nachgebundenen Pariser Meister- Maroquineinbänden vor, nicht unbedingt ein Nachteil - allerdings beim Sammeln, sicherlich nicht nur seinerzeit, ein großer Vorteil: die reich verzierten, meisterlichen Ledereinbände sind auch damals schon extrem rar und teuer gewesen und die Titel deswegen oft genug auch sehr beschnitten.

        HAKLUYTUS POSTUMUS OR PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES. CONTAYNING A HISTORY OF THE WORLD, IN SEA VOYAGES & LANDE-TRAUELLS, BY ENGLISHMEN & OTHERS...IN FIVE BOOKS

      London, 1625. Folio. Late 19th-century dark blue morocco, raised bands, a.e.g., by W. Pratt, handsome gilt device on front and rear covers. Careful repairs in upper margin of titlepage in fifth volume. Map of Virginia trimmed to margin on bottom and left, with loss of margin in gutter about a quarter-inch wide, repaired in expert facsimile, and laid down on linen. Engraved titlepage expertly remargined. Otherwise fresh and clean. A very good, tall, handsome set. A beautiful set of the second great collection of English voyages, expanding upon and greatly adding to the work of Hakluyt, whose manuscripts Purchas took over after Hakluyt's death. Comprised of the first issue of the first volume (which conforms to the pagination in Sabin 66683, with the offensive text concerning the Dutch in uncanceled state), and the fourth edition (as is usual and proper) of PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMAGE as the fifth volume (second issue, with the dedication to King Charles I). The first volume contains the first state of pages 703- 706, with the offending references to the Dutch (e.g. with the headline on page 704 reading "Hollanders lying deuices, to disgrace the English" instead of "Amboyna taken by the Dutch. Ingratitude. Boasting," as in the second issue). See Sabin for a detailed description of other issue points. Purchas collects over 1,200 separate narratives of explorations in every part of the world. Many of the accounts relate to the New World, especially Virginia, and one of the engraved maps is Smith's famous "Map of Virginia" (here in what Philip Burden describes as the tenth state). Besides Smith's Virginia map, Purchas includes two other maps of the greatest importance for North American cartography. The first of these is the "Briggs" map of North America, generally considered the first map to show California as an island. The Briggs map is also the first to note New Mexico by that name, and the first to name the Hudson River and Hudson Bay. The other notable American map is William Alexander's depiction of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts north to Newfoundland. As Burden notes, this is the first map to record many place names and is a "map of great importance." This set of Purchas is also notable for containing the engraved title, which is usually lacking or supplied in facsimile. Purchas began work on his massive collection in 1611, and published various editions of a short collection, with the similar title of "Purchas His Pilgrimage," over the next ten years. That publication, however, was merely a precursor to the present work, an entirely different book and arguably the greatest collection of travels and voyages ever published. The first two volumes are mainly devoted to travels in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The third volume largely treats northern explorations and America. The fourth volume is almost entirely devoted to America. The fifth volume, PILGRIMAGE, is a supplement to all of the preceding parts and properly completes a set of Purchas' PILGRIMES. A foundation work for any collection of travels and voyages, here in a nice, tall set.

        RELACION CIERTA Y VERDADERA DE LA FELIZ VITORIA Y PROSPEROS SUCESSOS QUE EN LA INDIA ORIENTAL HAN CONSEGUIDO LOS PORTUGUESES, CONTRA ARMADAS MUY PODEROSAS DE OLANDO, Y PERSIA, ESTE AÑO DE 1624. LA FECHA EN LA CIUDAD DE GOA, CABEÇA DE AQUEL REYNO, A 27. DE MARÇO, DEL DICHO AÑO, Y VINO EN LA NAO SANTO TOMÊ

      Madrid, 1625. Small folio. Dbd. Light contemporary annotations in margins of each page. Early folds. Loss, repaired in silk, to gutter and outer margins and along one fold, affecting a few characters of text on p.[4]. Overall very good. Rare Spanish newsletter reporting on recent victories by the Portuguese against the Dutch, the Persians, and others throughout Asia in 1624. The early 17th century saw the Dutch begin to present a serious threat to Portuguese power and commerce in the East, and by the mid- 1620s the Portuguese were beleaguered by constant attacks by the Dutch navy and its various Asian allies. The present Spanish newsletter celebrates one of the last great series of Dutch defeats by the Portuguese, who are lauded here by their Iberian partners as worldwide defenders of the Catholic faith holding their ground against overwhelming odds. Within a few years the Dutch would clearly gain the upper hand in Asia, both militarily and commercially, and by 1663 would control much of the Malabar Coast, Ceylon, Indonesia, Malacca, and European trade with Japan, leaving Portugal only with bases at Macao, East Timor, and Portuguese India. The newsletter discusses several naval battles off the coast of Persia, down the Malabar Coast to Ceylon, to Malacca, China, and Macao. A significant portion of the pamphlet describes the heavy Portuguese losses sustained by repeated attacks on Macao by the Dutch, who by this time had established a base in the Pescadores Islands. In the last paragraph attention is turned to the activities of the Jesuits in Ethiopia (described here as the "Realm of Prester John") and the recent conversion of Ethiopian King Suseynos to Roman Catholicism. Palau records four printings of the text, assigning priority to the present document and locating one copy at the National Library in Madrid. Palau also notes that a copy of this printing was sold by Maggs Bros. for £5 5s in 1927 and by Melchor García for 35 pesetas in 1934. OCLC locates four copies, at the Bavarian State Library in Germany, the University of Amsterdam, the Newberry Library, and the University of Chicago.

Y contienne lo siguiente en nuestra lengua Castellana. Zaragoza, "Imperial ciudad de Augusta" [= Zaragoza], 1626. Folio. Disbound, with a blank endleaf at the end.

      CCPB 000039164-6 (5 copies); Palau 61143; WorldCat (5 copies); cf. Knuttel 3663 (Dutch ed.). First and only Spanish edition of a pamphlet giving an account of the ill-fated British attempt in November 1625 to capture the Spanish fleet laden with silver and other precious goods from the West Indies and harass Spain with an armada of 100 ships, a debacle that cost the British £250,000 and the lives of more than a thousand men without yielding any booty. The present anonymous account of the events is said to have been written in Spanish but was first published in Dutch in 1626 by Anthony Jansz. Tongerloo in The Hague.George Villiers, first Duke of Buckingham, planned the mission as a glorious military triumph like the sinking of the Spanish Armada 37 years before. He sent an armada of 100 ships, but they were poorly maintained and provisioned merchant ships and were led by Sir Edward Cecil, a celebrated army commander with no naval experience. Reaching Spain too late to attempt to take the West Indian fleet, Cecil instead decided to attack Cádiz. Given the insufficient provisions, he let his landing party take wine vats from the local stores. The result was that the Spanish army slaughtered a thousand drunken soldiers who never fired a shot. The captains of the ships, more concerned with protecting their ships than with fighting, let the Spanish ships escape. It was left to the Dutch Admiral Piet Hein to successfully capture the Spanish silver fleet in the West Indies in 1628.With some tears and chips along the gutter fold, not approaching the text, but otherwise in good condition. The blank endleaf is nearly detached.

First complete edition of the Psalter in Syriac. "The text, which includes Ps. CLI, is based on three manuscripts, one of which had been sent to the editor by George, the Maronite Archbishop of Nicosia. The Latin version professes to be as literal a translation as possible of the Syriac text" (Darlow/M.). The present Paris edition and the one published at Leiden in the same year by Erpenius are the first two European editions of the Psalter in the Syriac language. While both are printed in Syriac and Latin, Erpenius's edition omits psalm 151 (cf. Smitskamp 80). Edited by the Maronite Gabriel Sionita (1577-1648), principally involved in the 1645 Paris polyglot Bible, printed with the types of Savary de Brèves. - Bound with the sole edition of Barhebraeus's Syriac poem. "Sionite édita et traduisit ce poème syriaque de Barhebraeus, mais sans en avoir identifié l’auteur.
