        Disputationum de sancto matrimonii sacramento editio haec postrema superiorum auctoritate correcta

      Antuerpiae: Apud Martinum Nutium colophon: Ex typographia Henrici Aertsi] Folio (36 cm, 14.2"). [20], 500, 404, 408, [66 (index)] pp.. 1626 Early edition, following the first complete printing of 1605 (preceded by a partial printing in 1602), of this sometimes controversial, oft-reprinted treatise on marriage, morality, and sexual sin. Each of the three books has its own separate title-page. Brunet calls this "un ouvrage célèbre, à cause de quelques passages singuliers qui s'y trouvent,"while Englisch notes that "Dieses Werk enthalt alle moglichen Variationen uber die Geschlechtssunde in umstandlichster und eingehendster Behandlung," and Sommervogel simply states that the work caused its author "quelques chagrins" despite the purity and austerity of his personal life (a Jesuit from the time he was 17 years old, the Cordova-born Sánchez was said by his spiritual director to have "carried his baptismal innocence to the grave," according to the Catholic Encyclopedia online). Contemporary alum-tawed pigskin, tooled in blind, spine with inked title; binding darkened and scuffed, with clasps now lacking and with leather torn over head and foot of spine (lacking at foot, with underlying vellum showing). Title-page with inked ownership inscriptions dated 1715, later institutional stamp in lower margin, and faint shadows of pencilled notations; front pastedown and one text page also with institutional stamps. Small spots of worming to lower margins of a number of leaves. Pages age-toned, with some instances of marginalia and underlining in early inked hands and occasionally in pencil (a handful of leaves in part III extensively annotated within text); a few spots of foxing, and one leaf with paper flaws partially obscuring a few letters. A big, solid volume.

        Gottfried von Bulljon, Oder Das Erlösete Jerusalem. Erst von dem Hochberühmbten Poeten Torquato Tasso in Welscher Sprache beschrieben: Und nun in Deutsche Heroische Poetische Gesetzweise, als vormals nie mehr gesehen, uberbracht. 30 S., 1 Bl., 259 num. Bl., 1 Bl. Errata. Mit gestoch. Titelbordüre, Porträt und 23 ganzseitigen Kupfern von Matthäus Merian. 4°. Guter Halbpergamentbd um 1900 mit Rückenschild.

      Frankfurt, Daniel und David Aubrij u. Clemens Schleich, 1626.. . Erste Ausgabe der Werderschen Tasso-Übersetzung, von größter Seltenheit. Werder (1584-1657) stammte aus anhaltinischem Uradel. Bis 1622 hatte er sich große Verdienste sowohl als Truppenführer wie auch als Diplomat erworben, bis er nach Tillys Einfall in Hessen in Ungnade fiel und sich auf sein Rittergut bei Köthen zurückzog. "Hier unternahm er das Wagnis der Versübersetzung von Tassos großem Epos 'Gerusaleme liberata' ... W's Landesfürst, Ludwig Anhalt von Köthen, erwarb in ihm einen zuverlässigen Freund und Mitarbeiter, auf dessen fachmännisches Urteil er sich von nun an stets verlassen sollte. Jetzt erst begann die eigentliche Blütezeit der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft, die bis dahin noch nie literarisch hervorgetreten war" (Dünnhaupt). Mit seiner reichen Ausstattung wie kaum ein Buch dieser Zeit ist es "eines der schönsten des Jahrhunderts, ... vielleicht das bedeutendste auch. Es war das erste deutsche Gedicht seit den Tagen Staufischer Wortschönheit, das eine große Reimkunst erforderte" (Nadler). "In jedem Fall ist dieses großangelegte Gedicht ... eins der wenigen nicht durch Opitz bestimmten Werke. Feurig und reif zugleich hat Werder diese Übersetzung gemacht, ... auf Deutsch und mit den Mitteln seiner Zeit den heroischen Geist von Tasso's Epos so richtig und tief erfaßt, daß sein Werk zugleich die erste Großtat der neuen Bildungsdichtung und das letzte echte deutsche Rittergedicht genannt werden muß" (Wolfskehl im Katalog Manheimer). Die schöne Ausstattung mit der ziemlich großen Fraktur, den Seitenumrandungen und hübschen Schmuckleisten und vor allem die prachtvollen, figurenreichen Kupfer aus Merians Frühzeit sind besonders bemerkenswert. Das Erratablatt findet sich nach Dünnhaupt sonst nur noch in Wien und Yale. - Wenig gebräunt, das Erratablatt mit angesetzter Ecke ohne Berührung des Druckspiegels. Schönes Exemplar. - Dünnhaupt 2.I. Goed. III 57, 14, 2a. Manheimer 439. Faber du Faur 179. Wüthrich 105a.

        Memorie della Regina di Svezia.

      Libro manoscritto in - 4° (cm. 25,5), legatura coeva in p. pergamena rigida, titolo ms. al dorso, tagli marmorizzati; cc. [1] 112 [2 bb.] numerate in ottimo stato, con elegante calligrafia di gusto barocco, ampi margini, titolo al frontespizio inquadrato in ricca cornice calcografica; 1 ritratto della regina Cristina in antiporta aggiunto nel XIX secolo; antica firma di possesso alla carta 112 «Gio. Bernabei». Libro politico, ampia testimonianza inedita della regina transgender Cristina (1626 - 1689) che, affascinata dalla scienza e dall'alchimia, tentò di trasformare Stoccolma nell'Atene del Nord, abiurò il luteranesimo ed esiliò in sella a un cavallo verso Roma. Oltre alla spassosa descrizione dell'ambigua regina che «non ha punto del donnesco» [p.1], il libro racconta nei dettagli il suo viaggio nello Stato della Chiesa, la sua rinuncia alla Corona Reale, i suoi «disgusti» con gli spagnoli, la sua uccisione del marchese traditore; riporta poi un paio di sue lettere e il testamento in cui nomina unico erede il cardinale Decio Azzolini; in fine vi è un sonetto e l'indice. Il fatto che Cristina fosse nata con una spiccata ipertrofia clitoridea e che in vita avesse atteggiamenti mascolini (rifiutò Blaise Pascal in favore dell'amore gay per una dama) fomentò dilemmi sulla sua identità sessuale, tanto da condurre ancora nel 1965 un antropologo a riesumarne la salma per un esame [Hjortsjö C.H.. Drottning Christina. Lund 1966]. L'autore del manoscritto alimenta questi dubbi e viene da noi identificato in Celestino Galiani (1681 - 1753), zio e precettore dell'economista Ferdinando. Le prime biografie a stampa di Cristina di Svezia risultano tarde: Arckenholtz (Amsterdam 1751), Lacombe (Parigi 1762), D'Alembert (Amsterdam 1770), salvo un resoconto funerario di Buagni (Roma 1689). Ottimo stato di conservazione.

        OSSERVAZIONI INTORNO ALLE VIPERE. Fatte da Francesco Redi gentiluomo aretino, Accademico della Crusca. E da lui scritte in una lettera all'Illustrissimo Signor Lorenzo Magalotti Gentiluomo della Camera del Ser.mo G.Duca di Toscana.

      Cm.23,6x17. Pg.91, (5). Legatura in piena pergamena semirigida, con minime tarlature ai margini. Tagli spruzzati. Frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero, con tavola calcografica che riporta il motto della Crusca "Il più bel fior ne coglie", ripetuta in xilografia al verso della carta L4. Le ultime due carte non numerate contengono l'imprimatur e l'errata. Fresco esemplare, a buoni margini. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ?" 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nelle "Osservazioni Intorno alle Vipere" dimostrò che il veleno di questi animali, contrariamente alla comune opinione dell'epoca, è dannoso solo se inoculato nella ferita e non se ingerito. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale" (da wikipedia).

      Venice: Ex Typographia Deuchiniana, 1626. First edition. Engraved title vignette. 99, [11, index], [1, errata] pp. 4to (7-7/16 x 5-1Ú2 inches; 189 x140 mm). Limp vellum, with pen manuscript title on upper cover, with very light dampstain in upper margin, else fine. A rare example of the competition for the patronage of Saint Nicholas The Venetian historian Olmo (fl. 1595-1635) wrote this history to question BariÕs claim to hold the remains of the saint, as expressed by Antonio Beatillo in his Historia della vita ... San Nicol? il Magno (Naples, 1620). There are numerous western sources which record the transfer of his remains from Myra to Bari in the year 1087, and the competition between the two cities began then. OlmoÕs work was written in a period when Venice was struggling to maintain its independence from the papacy, and it has a frankly political cast. It bears an elaborate dedication to the city and people of Venice ?' but does not have a papal imprimatur.

Closed tears in final leaf, repaired with very early paper on verso. Light staining and foxing. Overall very good. The original Spanish translation of an important invective against Louis XIII during the first phase of France's involvement in the Thirty Years' War. At the time of this publication in 1626, France had actively begun to support the Protestant side in the conflict, concerned with the political threat of the Hapsburg states that surrounded it on three sides (in Spain and Spanish-controlled Flanders to the south and north and the Holy Roman Empire in Germany to the East). In 1624, Cardinal Richelieu was appointed to the Royal Council of Louis XIII and immediately began to institute a vigorous anti-Hapsburg policy. The following year France joined England in subsidizing the efforts of Christian IV of Denmark to defend Lower Saxony against the Holy Roman Empire, beginning an involvement in the war that would eventually lead to its own military participation against its fellow Catholic powers. The present document is a long and detailed warning to Louis XIII against pursuing a course of actions that would pit France against the rest of the Catholic world. According to the document, itself, the text was first composed in French and subsequently translated into Latin and thence into Castilian Spanish. It immediately occasioned a number of responses and refutations, and its anonymous authorship soon became the subject of a 200- year-long debate. In his exhaustive and authoritative bibliography on the Jesuits, BIBLIOTHÈQUE DE LA COMPAGNIE DE JÉSUS, Augustin de Backer seems to have put the question of authorship to rest, attributing it to the German Jesuit Jacob Keller. Keller (1568-1631) was a German scholar and controversialist, widely regarded as a genius and best known for a counter- Calvinist tract on Tyrannicide and a celebrated defense of the Papacy in a debate with Lutheran theologian Jacob Heilbrunner. Backer lists both the French and Latin versions of the EXHORTATION. and refers to a German translation, but he omits any mention of the present Spanish version. He also describes the document as having been printed in Italy, which may result from confusion regarding the city name of Augusta. While Augusta, Syracuse, was under anti- French Spanish control in 1626 and may thus be a candidate for the printing location, all other signs and context point to Trier ("Augusta Treverorum" in Latin), including the publisher's imprint which calls Augusta an "imperial city" and declares permission for publication from the Holy Roman Emperor. An extremely interesting and rare document, anticipating the violent wars between France and the rest of Catholic Europe of the following decade and offering a view of the French- Hapsburg rivalry from the Austro- German Hapsburg perspective and translated for the Spanish Hapsburg audience.

        The collection of the history of England

      London: Printed [by Nicholas Okes] for Simon Waterson Folio (28.5 cm; 11.5"). [4] ff., 222 pp. (without imprimatur and dedication leaves).. 1626 Daniel (1562?-1619), a poet and historian, was educated at Oxford but left without taking a degree. During his life he had several patrons, served several lords, and only obtained financial security early in the 17th century when Queen Anne became his Maecenas. His early poetry varied in style but by the early 1590s it was solidly in the dolce stile. In 1612 Daniel brought out his first important prose work, The First Part of the Historie of England. The present work completes that earlier one and after recapitulating the earlier history in just 22 pages, takes the story from the Conquest to the end of the reign of Edward III. The title is printed within a woodcut "arabesque" border and the text is in roman within line borders defining space for sidenotes. Evidence of Readership: Occasional pencil marks in text; final blank with old pencil notes and an inked couplet of yet greater age: "To make poor mortalls more in Love with breath / The Gods conceale the benefitts of Death." Provenance: Signature on front free endpaper of "Thos. Hekt"(?) dated 1822; older ownership note on inside rear board of "Fransisci Heyct"(?); 20th-century bookplate of the famous collector Boies Penrose II. Contemporary calf over paste boards, modest blind double-ruled border on boards, gilt beading on board edges; binding worn, lacks pastedowns, hinges (inside) open but binding strong. Inner margin of title-leaf discolored from old glue. Text generally clean with only light waterstains in some early leaves' upper inner parts, a few stray stains or pencil marks as noted above in text, one leaf with a short closed tear. Without the imprimatur leaf preceding the title and lacking the dedication leaf, which was an insert between A2 and A3 and is frequently lacking; final blank leaf, also usually missing, present here with notes as above. Ownership notes as noted. On the whole, a good copy.

        Purchas his Pilgrimes In five bookes [and] Purchas his Pilgrimage

      London: W. Stansby for H. Fetherstone, 1625-, 1626. Five volumes, folio (in sixes), with seven double-page engraved maps, and 88 smaller maps or illustrations in the text; additional ornamental title page to the first volume; a few marginal repairs, some of the in-text maps just trimmed by binder at margins, the Virginia and New England maps in in the fourth volume expertly backed on linen; generally in fine condition throughout; in a handsome early 20th-century binding of dark brown crushed morocco, central gilt arabesque on covers, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers with inner gilt dentelle borders, by Pratt with his stamp in each volume. The classic anthology of exploration. 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...' (Waters, p. 260).As the Hill catalogue notes, 'At the death of Hakluyt there was left a large collection of voyages in manuscript which came into the hands of Purchas, who added to them many more voyages and travels, of Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese explorers as well as of English travellers. Purchas followed the general plan of Hakluyt, but he frequently put the accounts into his own words... The main divisions of the work fall into two parts: the first covering the world known to Ptolemy, the second coming down to Purchas' own day. This fine collection includes the accounts of Cortes and Pizarro, Drake, Cavendish, John and Richard Hawkins, Quiros, Magellan, van Noort, Spilbergen, and Barents as well as the categories of Portuguese voyages to the East Indies, Jesuit voyages to China and Japan, East India Company voyages, end the expeditions of the Muscovy Company...'.Most of the maps in the book are after the great Dutch mapmaker Joost de Hondt (Jodocus Hondius). The seven large double-page maps include two of China (vols. 3 and 5), one of India and one of Greenland, along with three particularly important maps of North America: the Henry Briggs map (Burden 214, Goss 24) which was responsible for the problematic tradition of showing California as an island; the map of Canada/New Scotland (Burden 208, second state; "This map is of great importance"); and John Smith's map of Virginia (Burden 164, state 9; "one of the most important printed maps of America ever produced and certainly one of the greatest influence").As always, there are several issue-points to be detailed: in volume 1 the engraved title is in the usual second state (dated 1625); p. 65 (bk. 1) is in the uncorrected state (with "Hondius His Map of the Christian World"); signature Tt is paginated like the Astor copy and on p. 217 the side-note is corrected but the signature mark is present; pp. 703-6 are the first issue (with the headline "Hollanders lying devices, to disgrace the English" and other hostile references to the Dutch); the blank R4 is present. The map of Virginia in volume 4 is in Verner's ninth state. The last volume is the fourth and best edition of 'Purchas his Pilgrimage', first published separately in 1613, enlarged and republished in 1626 specifically to accompany the four volumes of the 'Pilgrimes'; the present copy is the second issue with the title beginning "Purchas" (rather than "Purchase") and with the added dedication to King Charles.A detailed list of the contents can be supplied on request.Kublai Khan:In one of the most celebrated episodes of English literature, Coleridge was reading his copy of Purchas when the gentleman from Porlock famously interrupted his opium-assisted reverie. As Coleridge described it himself, 'In consequence of a slight indisposition, an anodyne had been prescribed [two grains of opium, self-prescribed], from the effects of which he fell asleep in his chair at the moment that he was reading the following sentence, or words of the same substance, in Purchas' Pilgrimage: 'Here the Khan Kubla commanded a palace to be built, and a stately garden thereunto. And thus ten miles of fertile ground were inclosed with a wall.' The author continued for about three hours in a profound sleep, at least of the external sense, during which time he has the most vivid confidence that he could not have composed less than from two to three hundred lines; if that indeed can be called composition in which all the images rose up before him as things, with a parallel production of the correspondent expressions, without any sensation or consciousness of effort. On awakening he appeared to himself to have a distinct recollection of the whole, and taking his pen, ink, and paper, instantly and eagerly wrote down the lines that are here preserved. At this moment he was unfortunately called out by a person on business from Porlock, and detained by him above an hour, and on his return to his room, found, to his no small surprise and mortification, that though he still retained some vague and dim recollection of the general purport of the vision, yet, with the exception of some eight or ten scattered lines and images, all the rest had passed away like the images on the surface of a stream into which a stone had been cast, but, alas! without the after restoration of the latter...'.The start of Coleridge's poem more closely echoed in fact the passage in Purchas, based on Marco Polo: 'In Xandu did Cublai Can build a stately Pallace, encompassing sixteen miles of plaine ground with a wall, wherein are fertile Meddowes, pleasant Springs, delightfull streames, and all sorts of beasts of chase and game, and in the middest thereof a sumptuous house of pleasure, which may be moved from place to place'.The first printed notice of Australia?The first adequately documented European visit to Australia is that of Willem Janszoon and Jan Lodewyckszoon van Roossengin on the Dutch pinnace Duyfken in 1605. They were sent out from Bantam to "discover" New Guinea and other islands south of the Bandas, and they raised the west coast of Cape York Peninsula near Pennefather River. They sailed south along the coast for a while, then doubled back, sailing along the same coast further to the north. They landed at Batavia River in Albatross Bay where they were attacked by Aborigines who killed several of the Dutch crewmen. Janszoon and Lodewyckszoon called the coast New Guinea. Although they sailed past it, they did not recognise the Torres Strait as a passage south of New Guinea. Their discoveries soon appeared on charts as a southern extension of the New Guinea coast, but no published account of their voyage appeared during the seventeenth century. The English factor John Saris, however, reported from Bantam both the departure of the Duyfken and its return to Banda in 1606. When published by Purchas in 1625 it was probably Europe's first printed notice of Australia:The eighteenth of November 1605 here departed a small Pinnasse of the Flemmings, for the discovery of the Island caled Nova Guinea, which, as it is said, affordeth great store of Gold.The fifteenth of June 1606, here arrived Nockhoda Tingall a Cling-man [Kling, Malay for Indian] from Bandas, in Java Juncke,... he told me that the Flemmings Pinasse which went upon discovery for Nova Ginny, was returned to Banda, having found the Island: but in sending their men on shore to intreate of trade, there were nine of them killed by the Heathens, which are man-eaters; so they were constrained to return, finding no good to be done there.

        The collection of the history of England

      London: Printed [by Nicholas Okes] for Simon Waterson Folio (27.5 cm, 10.8"). [10], 222 pp.. 1626 [with] Trussell, John. A continuation of the Collection of the history of England, beginning where Samuel Daniell Esquire ended... London: Pr. by M[ary] D[awson] for Ephraim Dawson, 1636. Folio. [8], 260 pp. (pagination skips 243/44). Daniel (1562?-1619), a poet and historian, was educated at Oxford but left without taking a degree. He subsequently achieved great popular success and influence as a poet of the dolce stile, to the point that Spenser obliquely praised him in the Prothalamion and Shakespeare took his Civil Wars as a source for the history plays. In 1612 Daniel brought out his first important prose work, The First Part of the Historie of England. The present work completes that one, and after recapitulating the earlier history in just 22 pages, takes the story from the Conquest to the end of the reign of Edward III. Following that is Trussell's further completion of the history, extending through the life and reign of Richard III. The Collection is here in an early edition, following the first of 1618, and the Continuation in the => first edition. The main title is printed within a woodcut "arabesque" border and the text is in roman within line borders defining space for sidenotes. Provenance: Front pastedown with 19th-century monogram bookplate of John Tomlinson and with 20th-century U.S. bookseller's small ticket; title-page of Collection with early inked inscription "R[ichar?]d Weston." Title-page of Continuation with early inked inscription "Fra.[?] Taylor. 18th-century dark brown morocco framed in gilt roll, all edges sprinkled blue and red; rebacked, joints refurbished, and original spine with gilt-stamped title and rules reapplied; rubbed and with spine extremities chipped. Pages age-toned, with intermittent light to moderate waterstaining and occasional foxing or ink staining; first and last few leaves with edges also darkened by offsetting from binding and one leaf with small burn hole in outer margin. Title-page with inscription as above, and with a few light ink smears not affecting text or border; last page of Collection with early ink doodles and lettering. A solid, rather distinguished example of this good combination.

        LA MAGIE NATURELLE, qui est les secrets & miracles de Nature, mise in quatre livres. Avec une Table des principales matieres qui y sont contenues. Nouvellement traduite de Latin en Francois.

      Rouen, Claude le Villain, 1626.Early French edition,1626. Small 8vo, approximately 120 x 80 mm, 4¾ x 3¼ inches, a few woodcut initials and headpieces, pages: (14), 545, (28) - Table, bound in contemporary limp vellum, remains of hand - lettering to spine. Vellum discoloured and darkened, very small chip at head of spine, 3 small nicks and tiny chips at tail, ties missing, small corner missing from second blank endpaper and from 1 text page, no loss of text, occasional pale stain to margins, small area of paper thinning to 1 leaf due to paper flaw, with loss of a few letters, small worm hole repaired in final leaf of table with loss of 3 letters and a larger one in the rear endpaper, small repair to rear pastedown, some small corner creases throughout. A good copy of an early French edition. Pages 527 - 545 are occupied by Divers Secrets mis en lumiere par Toussaints Bourgeois. Giambattista della Porta (1535 - 1615) was an Italian scholar, polymath and playwright who lived in Naples at the time of the Scientific Revolution and Reformation. Born in that city to Italian nobility, he spent the majority of his life on scientific endeavours. He benefited from an informal education of tutors and visits from renowned scholars. His most famous work, first published in 1558, was the Magiae Naturalis. In this book he covered a variety of the subjects he had investigated, including the study of: occult philosophy, astrology, alchemy, mathematics, meteorology, and natural philosophy. It includes cosmetics to enhance the beauty of women, fireworks, secret writing, conjuring and magic tricks, remedies based on poppy and opium, the culture of vines and fruit trees, the virtues of precious stones, and herbal remedies. ... In Italy, in the latter half of the sixteenth century, came a striking example of the difficulties which science still encountered even after the Renaissance had undermined the old beliefs. At that time John Baptist Porta was conducting his investigations, and, despite a considerable mixture of pseudo - science, they were fruitful. His researches in optics gave the world the camera obscura, and possibly the telescope; in chemistry he seems to have been the first to show how to reduce the metallic oxides, and thus to have laid the foundation of several important industries. He did much to change natural philosophy to a vigorous open science. The society founded by him for physical research, called themselves Otiosi (i.e., Men of Leisure) and made it a condition of membership that each man must have contributed a new discovery or fact in natural science. Their Accademia Secretorum Naturae was soon suspect, from its name and deeds, of dabbling in the occult. Della Porta was denounced to Pope Paul V and called to Rome to explain the reports of witches' salves and necromantic arts. Happily justifying his devout search for truth and his campaign against charlatans, he returned cautioned but unblemished and was able, later in life, to help establish and become Vice - President of the Academy of the Lynxes (its name symbolised the struggle of scientific truth against ignorance), of which Prince Federico Cesi was President and Galileo the most illustrious member".

        Histoire universelle … comprise en trois tomes

      Amsterdam [i.e.Geneva]: Heritiers de Hier. Comelin [i.e. Pierre Aubert]. 1626. "Second edition, revised and augmented; folio, pp. 20, 1189 columns, 744 columns (so paged), pp. [40]; top of spine chipped, 3 small worm holes through the upper cover and into the first few leaves; occasional light foxing, but generally a clean, sound copy in full contemporary calf, gilt. D'Aubigne (1552-1630) was the son of a zealous Huguenot who instilled in him an abiding protestant sympathy and an almost reckless disregard for personal safety in the Protestant struggle. He was present at the siege of Orleans where his father was killed. He soon after went to Geneva to study under Beza. From there he attached himself to the Huguenot army under the command of the Prince of Conde. Eventually he joined the retinue of Henry of Navarre, and proved himself of great service to the future king, both as a soldier and a counselor. After Henry's elevation to the throne, the king found d'Aubigne's rough manner and caustic criticisms tiresome (in his literary works he freely exercised his gift of sarcasm with regard to the king and his family) and the rift between the two widened when the king converted to Catholicism. By the time he published the third volume of the present work, it was ordered to be burned by the common hangman, so free and unguarded was its satire. He fled to Geneva in 1620 where he lived the rest of his life. The Histoire Universelle is the work for which d'Aubigne is best remembered, ""a lively chronicle of the incidents of camp and court life, [forming] a very valuable source for the history of France during the period it embraces"" (EB-11). This copy has the place of printing (Amsterdam) neatly excised and patched, and ""a Geneve"" printed by hand above and below the printer's imprint on the title-page, presumably indicating an issue from the author's city of refuge. This copy from the library of John Evelyn, with the latter-day Evelyn bookplate, Evelyn's accession number of the front flyleaf (which itself is partially loose), and the ownership signature on the title-p. of [Sir] Robert Offley, whose daughter married Evelyn's brother, George. Brunet I, 545."
