[Dutch-Portuguese War]
Madrid: Bernardino de Guzman, 1625. [4]pp. In Spanish. Decorative woodcut initial on first page. 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.

Der aus Bergzabern stammende Jakob Theodor nahm die latinisierte Form seines Geburtsortes zum Namen. Er war Schüler von Hieronymus Bock.

"Tabernaemontanus hat die Ergebnisse einer grossen eigener Erfahrung verarbeitet, neben der Berücksitigung aller damals vorhandenen besseren Kräuterbücher, deren Autoren oft zitiert werden.

Euklid.
Nürnberg, Simon Halbmayer, [1625].. (8), 92 SS. Mit einer gest. breiten figuralen und architektonischen Titelbordüre sowie 125, meist schematischen Holzschnitten und einigen Holzschnittvignetten im Text. Pergamentband unter Verwendung eines zeitgen. Pergamentmanuskripts in rot und schwarz mit einigen Federwerksinitialen in Rot und Blau, Schließbänder. 4to.. Erste deutsche Ausgabe aller 15 Bücher der "Elemente". Die berühmte Basler Ausgabe von 1562 bringt bekanntlich nur "Die sechs ersten Bücher des Euklidis", ein Umstand, auf den auch im Vorwort des vorliegenden Werkes Bezug genommen wird: "Weiln ich denn meines theils nicht wußte mich zuentsinnen, daß jemals was in deutscher Sprach auß den letzern Bühern Euclidis ans Liecht bracht worden were, Als habe ich alle problemata durch den gantzen Euclidem collagiret, ergäntze und zusammen gezogen, wollen in offentlichen Truck kommen lassen [...]". Freilich handelt es sich bei dieser vom Mathematiker Lukas Brunn besorgten Ausgabe eher um eine Auswahl und Kompilation aus den 15 Büchern des Euklid als um eine wortgetreue Übersetzung aus dem griechischen Urtext. Hoffmann (II, 49) bemerkt denn auch bei Kommentierung eines 1653 in Jena unter dem Titel "Teutscher Euclides" erschienenen Werks, daß es sich hierbei nicht um eine Übersetzung im eigentlichen Sinn handelt. Gleichwohl führt er ebendieses Werk von 1653 als erste und bis 1714 auch einzige vollständige deutsche Ausgabe; unsere 28 Jahre früher erschienene Ausgabe war Hoffmann offenbar unbekannt, während Schweiger dieselbe bereits als selbständige Übersetzung anführt. - "Die 'Eleme … [Click Below for Full Description]

RYCKEMANS, Nicholas
Claes Jansz Visscher. Uncolored engraving. Handwritten annotations in bottom margin and on verso. Image measures 8.5" x 11". This plate features a scene from Chapter 11 of the Old Testament, known as the Book of Judges. It comes from the story of Jephthe, who served as a judge over Israel for 6 years, during which he led the Israelites in battle against Ammon. The scene likely depicts a military planning session, with Jephthe sitting in his seat of honor and pointing at a map of the area surrounding the Jordan River titled "Ammonitis Regio que nunc Philadelphia." Ryckemans completed the scene after the work of his teacher, Pieter de Jode, and published it circa 1625-30 as part of a series depicting the story of Jephthe. The engraving is in good condition with overall discoloration and some stains. It is mounted on paper that is annotated in ink in the bottom margin and on verso. Petrus or Pieter de Jode I (1570--1634) was a Flemish Baroque painter and engraver known for his work after old masters. Nicolas Ryckemans, one of Jode's students, worked in his teacher's studio and was one of Rubens' favorite engravers. This print is an unusual treasure for any collector.

The classic anthology of exploration: 'This is one of the fullest and most important collections of voyages and travels in the English language' (Church).This is a splendid set (in a handsome binding by the 19th-century London binder Pratt) of the monumental sequel to Hakluyt's collection of voyages. If Purchas is thought by some to lack Hakluyt's inspired touch as an editor, his mighty volumes encompassing some twelve hundred separate narratives 'hold many a stirring tale of bravery at sea, ice under a midnight sun in Arctic seas or, far away south, under a tropic moon or brazen noontide sun. They tell of parching thirst, and freezing cold, of chill winds that searched men to the bone, and of the hot breath of desert sands that scorched their flesh and drove them crazed to death...'

Jacques CALLOT (Nancy 1592 - 1635)
Acquaforte e bulino, 1625, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare di terzo stato con indirizzo di Silvestre. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L?opera fu commissionata al Callot per una tesi teologica sostenuta nel 1625 a Roma dal frate Etienne Didelot. Dedicata a Carlo IV e alla Duchessa Nicole, l?opera viene descritta nella lastra come l?immagine della guerra, della vittoria, del trionfo e della gloria della Vergine. La grande composizione si può dividere in tante piccole scene, tutte spiegate da iscrizioni latine, aventi un unico comune denominatore: la devozione mariana. L?opere trasmette la figura di una donna forte, dominante, alle volte raffigurata con l?allegoria di Roma Trionfante, a tutt?oggi associata all?iconografia dell?Immacolata Concezione. Secondo alcuni studiosi l?opera rappresenta la testimonianza più elevata del culto mariano presso la confraternita dei Francescani, che si esprimeva al massimo in occasione degli anni santi. Numerosi sono i disegni preparatori all?opera, conservati al museo di Nancy. Opera di grande fascino mistico. Bibliografia: Lieure 562; Mostra di Nancy, 694. Dimensioni 368x563.

Ottavio LEONI detto "Il Padovanino" (Roma 1578 circa - 1630)
Acquaforte e bulino, 1625, firmata e datata in lastra negli esemplari di secondo stato. Magnifica prova del raro primo stato di due, avanti lettera, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione.Celebre per i suoi ritratti di tutta l?aristocrazia romana degli inizi del XVII secolo, il Leoni, romano di nascita, deve il suo soprannome alla città natale del padre, anch?egli pittore di ritratti. Controversa la paternità del volto effigiato: secondo il Mariette, grande appassionato di disegni ed incisioni del Leoni, si tratterebbe di Mario Nuzzi detto ?Mario de? Fiori?, mentre più ragionevolmente si tratta del suo amico Tommaso Salini, ipotesi confermata dalla leggenda aggiunta nella prova del secondo stato. Ai lati del ritratto principale, un curioso accostamento di due testine incise al bulino, ad avvalorare il fatto che la lastra non gli fu commissionata, ma venne realizzata in tutta libertà. Nel 1603 il Leoni venne coinvolto in un?azione diffamatoria ai danni di Caravaggio dal pittore Giovanni Baglione. Testimone al processo fu proprio Tommaso Salini, che dichiarò invece di aver ricevuto delle strofe che criticavano Baglione scritte da Orazio Gentileschi e da ?Ottavio Padovano??.

VOLCK, J.
Strassburg, Rihel, 1625. Small 8vo (160 x 950mm). pp. (38). Modern speckled brown boards. One of the earliest works descibing the discovery of oil. Johann Volck was a student of Leonard Thurneisser who was one of the first followers of Paracelsus. Little is known about Volck apart from the fact that he had a distilling plant at Lampertloch. The English translation of the German title is as follows: Description of the Hanau earth balsam, petroleum and soft agate stone, which are found in the village named Lampertloch, belonging to the most nobly born count Johan Reinhard, Count of Hanau and Zweibrücken etc., etc., together with its qualities, power and efficacy, which various authors ascribe to it.... The work describes the petroleum basins of the Alsace of which the town Hagenau is of major importance. "The interesting aspects of his pamphlet, however, resides in the fact that in the last four pages he expatiates upon technical uses of petroleum which... were not generally accepted until very much later... Comparing Volck's statement with those of a famous technologist such as Agricola... Volck's pamphlet stands out by virtue of acumen of its auhtor, who obviously personally looked for the possible practical uses of crude oil and the distillate therefrom in directions which had not occured to his contemporaries" (Forbes, Studies in early petroleum history pp. 74-75). A very rare item. The Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog only mentions six copies in German libraries.

AROMATARI, Giuseppe degli
8 p.l., 96 pp. Small 4to, cont. vellum over boards. Venice: J. Sarcina, 1625. First edition and one of the great rarities in the literature of embryology; it had, according to Ernst Weil (Cat. 14, item 11), a great influence on Harvey. In this work, Aromatari disputes the doctrine of spontaneous generation, sustains the fact that not each seed or egg has the germinative faculty, and states that only a small proportion of the seed or egg constitutes the embryo and the bulk is substance for its nourishment. Aromatari (1587-1660), "studied philosophy and medicine in Perugia, Montpellier, and Padua, where he attended Fabricius' lectures. After graduating M.D. in 1605, Aromatari remained at Padua until 1610 when he settled at Venice to practice medicine. His fame soon caused him to be requested as personal physician by King James I of England and by Pope Urban VIII; but Aromatari declined...He was also famous as a man of letters as well as a physician. From 1609 until 1613, he was involved in a literary debate with the poet Alessandro Tassoni over the work of Petrarch. Aromatari is remembered today, however, for his hypothesis of the preformation of the germ... "In 1625 Aromatari published at Venice his famous Epistola de generatione plantarum ex seminibus ('Letter on the Generation of Plants from Seeds')...The work was only four pages long, but it immediately made Aromatari famous... "Aromatari affirmed that the seeds of plants are composed of two parts: a smaller part, the germ, which contains, in miniature, all parts of the future plant; and a larger part, which i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Purchas, Samuel:
London: William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1625-1626.. Five volumes. Folio. Crushed blue morocco, gilt, by W. Pratt, covers with central gilt arabesques, spines lettered in gilt in six compartments, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. A fine copy. 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. Purchas collects over twelve hundred 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." Besides the Smith Virginia map, Purchas also 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." 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 trave … [Click Below for Full Description]
