        Rosa Ursina sive Sol ex Admirando Facularum & Macularum suarum Phoenomeno varius...Libris quatuor

      Engraved allegorical frontis., fine engraved port. of the Duke of Bracciano, engraved vignette on title, & very many finely engraved illus. in the text (some full-page) depicting the author's observations of sunspots and the telescopes used by him. 20 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 784 pp., one blank leaf, [36] pp. Large thick folio (390 x 267 mm.), cont. vellum over boards (some wear to extremities, joint cracked but strong, light browning & occasional minor marginal dampstaining). Bracciano: [Privately Printed by] A. Phaeus, 1626-30. First edition, and a remarkable large and thick paper copy, of Scheiner's greatest work; this magnificent book, which is today very rare on the market, is the most richly and superbly illustrated astronomy book published in the first half of the 17th century. It describes and depicts Scheiner's observations of sunspots and his telescopes. We have never seen a large and thick paper copy of this book before; it is simply gigantic when compared to a normal copy (which usually measures about 348 x 240 mm.). In 1611, Scheiner constructed a telescope with which he began to make astronomical observations, and in March of that year, he detected the presence of spots on the sun. Scheiner's claim to the discovery of sun spots, independently of Galileo, was the origin of one of the most famous and heated controversies in the history of science. This book contains the summation of Scheiner's observations of the sun. He confirmed his method and criticized Galileo for failing to mention the inclination of the axis of rotation to the plane of the ecliptic. Of great importance is Scheiner's discovery of the helioscope, described here. This was the first Keplerian telescope in use, consisting of two convex lenses; it was also the first to use colored glass in the eyepiece. Kepler himself had only considered the telescope theoretically. Scheiner writes here that he had used the Keplerian telescope thirteen years before in the presence of the Archduke Maximilian. The quality of the engravings in this book is exceptional. There are many fine illustrations of the telescope and its parts, lenses, fittings, etc. Rosa Ursina was printed on the private press established by Paolo Jordano Orsini, Duke of Bracciano, a great patron of astronomy, at his castle at Bracciano. A very fine copy of a book which is very difficult to find. Old Jesuit library inscription on title dated 1637. Another inscription on title concealed. Cinti 79. D.S.B., XII, pp. 151-52. King, The History of the Telescope, pp. 40-45. Linda Hall Library, Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo, 6. .

      London: Printed by William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1626. . Fourth edition, folio, (xl), 140, 149-344, 347-1047, (1, 24 Index) pp, with some mispagination. 22 maps and one plate (of a Turkish woman) in the text, but lacking the folding map of China, 7 leaves of text and 6 leaves of the Index at the end, final Index leaf present torn with about half lost, some light staining to early leaves, 19th century armorial bookplate, 19th and 20th century ownership inscriptions to fly leaf. Contemporary calf with a simple border of three blind stamped rolls, some wear, neatly rebacked with a maroon label. A defective copy of an important work, distinct from Purchas’ “Pilgrimes” which often has this title bound up as a fifth volume. The “Pilgrimes” is a famous collection of voyages published from many of Hakluyt’s manuscripts which Purchas inherited; whereas the “Pilgrimage” concerns the religions and history of the world and was largely his own composition. Divided into sections per continent, he covers Biblical history and customs, the origins of Islam, trade and voyages to the East Indies and Japan, Egyptian religion, the various African tribes and countries and America north and south - “New France, Virginia, Florida, New Spaine, with other Regions of America Mexicana... Cumana, Guiana, Brasil, Chica, Chili, Peru...”. STC 20508.5. Sabin 66682 “...the best edition of the ‘Pilgrimage’” and the only one with maps.

TRANSPORTED FROM CAMBRIOLL COLCHOS, OUT OF THE SOUTHERMOST PART OF THE ILAND [sic], COMMONLY CALLED THE NEWFOUNDLAND

      London: Printed for Francis Williams, 1626.. [28],149,[1],105,[1],96pp. Folding map in facsimile. Small quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, stamped and ruled in blind, gilt morocco label, raised bands. Bookplate on front pastedown, some ink notes on front endpapers. Worm hole in lower outer margin throughout, most pronounced in first twenty-five leaves. Early manuscript marginalia (in English and Latin) and underscoring. A very good copy. This copy bears the bookplate of Thomas Hay (1710-87), eighth Earl of Kinnoull. Hay was a classical scholar, a member of Parliament, and in 1746 was made a lord of trade and plantations. "He took a prominent part in the efforts to improve the condition of Nova Scotia" - DNB. The anonymous author, William Vaughan (1575 or 1577-1641), was a Welsh poet and colonial promoter who saw Newfoundland, with its rich fisheries, as a source of revenue for England and of employment for its people. This work, in the form of a literary fantasy, is meant to extol the riches and gains to be had in Newfoundland. "Cambrioll," mentioned in the title here, was the name Vaughan gave to his settlement on the island. Vaughan actually spent time in Newfoundland from 1622 to 1624, an experience which greatly adds to the accuracy of this promotional work; and despite the fantastical nature of the text, much early information on Newfoundland is to be gleaned here. "This work is one of the earliest contributions to English literature from America, and was intended to advertise Vaughan's colony. It is a queer fantasy in prose and verse, in which a succession of historical characters present complaints against the evils of the age in the Court of Apollo, and finally find the Golden Fleece in Newfoundland" - Baer. The text contains brief references to Lord Baltimore (a partner in Vaughan's Newfoundland enterprise) and Captaine Wynne, hence the Maryland interest. Vaughan also criticizes the social use of tobacco, bringing his work to the attention of Arents. The map of Newfoundland, here present in expert facsimile, was drawn by John Mason for Vaughan's exceedingly rare CAMBRENSIUM CAROLEIA, published in 1625. According to the Church catalogue, quoting Rich, the Mason map is not always found with THE GOLDEN FLEECE - as in the Toronto Public Library copy, which is in a similar contemporary binding but lacks the map. A significant early and interesting New World promotional, with a Maryland association. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 626/143. LANDE S2269. TPL 6302. BAER MARYLAND 12. ARENTS 161A. CHURCH 409. BELL V36.

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

      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 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. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 625/173. SABIN 66682-6. CHURCH 401A. HUTH SALE 6057. BAER MARYLAND 8. HILL 1403. STREETER SALE 36. STC 20509.

        MANUSCRIT : CENSURE OU DÉCLARATION CONTRE CERTAINS LIBELS SÉDITIEUX, publiée par Mons. L?Evesque de Chartres sous le nom de l?assemblée du Clergé, avec les manifestes faits de par et d?autre pour et contre ladite Censure, et arrests sur ceux Intervenus es années 1625 et 1626.

      XVIIIe - Sans lieu ni date [début XVIIIe]. Manuscrit in-folio (238 X 356) veau blond glacé, armes dorées sur les plats dans un large encadrement de triple filet à froid, dos six nerfs, caissons dorés ornés aux petits fers, dentelles et roulettes en queue, pièces de titre maroquin rouge et ocre, coupes et coiffes ornées, tranches marbrées (reliure de l?époque); (1) f. blanc, 211 feuillets numérotés rédigés recto-verso, (2) ff. blancs. Ex-libris manuscrit et deux cachets anciens en tête et en marge du titre. Quelques épidermures sur les plats, sans gravité. IMPORTANT MANUSCRIT HISTORIQUE, POLITIQUE ET RELIGIEUX SUR LA CENSURE DE LIBELLES JÉSUITES publiés sous le règne de Louis XIII, dans le contexte de la guerre de trente ans et du conflit de la Valteline, en Lombardie. Ce manuscrit s?inspire de l?affaire des libelles publiés par les jésuites André Eudaemon-Jean et Jacques Keller en 1625 et 1626 et de la censure qui en suivit, rédigée par Léonor d'Estampes de Valençay (1589-1651), évêque de Chartres. COMPOSÉ AU DÉBUT DU XVIIIe siècle, ce mémoire est rédigé à l?encre brune d?une écriture large, très lisible, en grande partie en français; il est constitué de cinq parties distinctes formant 421 pages au total. La première partie traite de la publication des libelles et de leur retentissement (ff. 1 à 5); la deuxième partie donne un extrait en latin du libelle "Admonitio ad regem" (ff. 5 à 10); la troisième partie, en latin, s?intéresse à la censure de l?évêque de Chartres (ff. 11 à 40); la quatrième partie reproduit le manifeste rédigé par l?Évêque de Chartres au sujet de la Censure qu?il a publiée au nom du clergé en 1626(ff. 41 à 191) ; enfin la cinquième et dernière partie reprend les procédures faites contres les jésuites ainsi que d?autres sentences et déclarations diverses, dont quatre feuillets rédigés en latin (ff. 192 à la fin). DE VIOLENTS LIBELLES DIRIGÉS PAR LES JÉSUITES CONTRE RICHELIEU : ce manuscrit rapporte par le détail l?affaire des libelles dirigés en 1625 par les jésuites contre la politique de Richelieu, jugée trop favorable aux protestants. Il s?agit très exactement des livres intitulés "Mysteria politica" et "Admonitio ad regem Ludovicum christianissi", dans lesquels les jésuites prétendent notamment démontrer qu?en s?engageant dans la guerre de la Valteline, en Lombardie, la France a fait une alliance honteuse et impie avec les protestants, et entrepris une guerre contre les catholiques qu?elle ne pouvait continuer sans risquer de détruire la religion. Au tout début des années 1620, la France reprend en effet une politique active d?hostilité à la maison d?Autriche et renoue son alliance avec les Provinces-Unies. L?action de la France peut ainsi être jugée ambiguë et louvoyante, car bien que surveillant avec méfiance l?encerclement du royaume par les territoires soumis aux Habsbourg, le cardinal de Richelieu n'hésite pas à soutenir ou à s'allier aux princes protestants pour contrer la maison d'Autriche, tout en souhaitant rester le champion du catholicisme et de la chrétienté contre les Turcs et en combattant les protestants en France. LES DÉBUTS DE LA GUERRE DE TRENTE ANS : à partir de 1618 paraît devoir se trancher en Europe centrale la querelle séculaire entre le catholicisme romain et l?hérésie. La victoire de la Montagne blanche (1619) semble inaugurer une ère de reconquête catholique. Dans ce combat à l?échelle de l?Europe, le cas français avec la cohabitation admise entre catholiques et protestants garantie par l?Édit de Nantes, fait figure d?exception dénoncée par certains milieux romains et, en particulier, certains jésuites. Depuis la conversion d?Henri IV au catholicisme, les confesseurs du roi sont tous jésuites. En 1624-1625, au moment où Richelieu entre puis s?impose au conseil du roi Louis XIII, le dynamisme et la prospérité de la Compagnie de Jésus en France vient donc heurter de front des intérêts religieux et extra-religieux. C'EST AINSI QUE LES JÉSUITES VONT DEVENIR L'OBJET D'UNE SÉRIE DE PERSÉCUTIO

        Nuevo Descubrimiento del gran Cathayo, ò Reynos de Tibet, por el Padre Antonio de Andrade, de la Compañia de Iesus, Portugues, en el año de 1624 [caption title]

      por Mateo Piñeiro, Lisbon 1626 - Modern blue morocco-backed marbled paper-covered boards, spine lettered in gilt The very rare second printing of the first authoritative printed account of a European traveller's visit to Tibet. The first Spanish-language edition, printed a few months after the first edition which was in Portuguese. This edition is not Cordier, and OCLC records only a single example: the Bernardo Mendel copy now in the Indiana University library. Antonio de Andrade (1580-1634) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary who entered the order in 1596. From 1600 to 1624 he was the principal missionary in the Indies. In 1624, with the support of the Moghul emperor, he set out for Tibet, hoping to make contact with a reported trans-Himalayan Christian community. Travelling north to the upper Ganges and then to Mana, on the present-day border of Tibet, he continued on past local resistance to the state of Guge, where he encountered his first Buddhists. Andrade successfully convinced the King to allow the teaching of Christianity, and returned to Agra, where he wrote the present letter to his superiors, relating his journey and his experiences. Andrade would ultimately return to Tibet twice, consecrating a church at Tsaparang in 1626. Andrade's work is important as being the first undoubtedly authentic first-hand description of Tibet by a European: the 14th-century visit of Odorico de Pordenone remains disputed. It was very popular and quickly went through a number of editions. "Throughout Catholic Europe this 'discovery' (so proclaimed by the title of the work, though Andrade never called it that himself) was hailed as a great victory for the faith and as possible aid in circumventing the dangers from the Protestant fleets on the lengthy sea route from India to China.Through Andrade's book and his later letters and those of others, Europe learned more about Tibet's location, size, political divisions, religion and customs.

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".

        De Imitatione Christi, Libri Quatuor; Denuo Ad Fidem Autographi Anni 1441 Recensiti: Cum Vita Eiusdem Thomae, Per Heribertum Ros-vveydum

      Ex officina Plantiniana apud Balthasarem Moretum, 1626. Ex officina Plantiniana apud Balthasarem Moretum. Hardcover. B00KIOLWH8 In Latin. 1626 first thus 'Ex officina Plantiniana apud Balthasarem Moretum, & Viduam Ioannis Moreti, & Io. Meursium' (Antwerp, Beligium) 3 3/8 x 5 7/8 inches tall x 1 3/4 inches thick full contemporary vellum, [24], 418, [1] pp. Small engraving of Christ and his followers with crosses to title page, striking full-page engraving of author Thomas Kempis by Flemish engraver Hieronymus Wierix (1553-1619) precedes the beginning of the main text, with engraved decorative initials at the commencement of each of the four books and other engraved printers' devices throughout. Vellum covers, which are characteristically stained and grubby, have yapped fore edges and 2 drilled holes on both front and rear covers to accommodate leather ties (lacking). Prior owner names in ink and heavy soiling to front pastedown and all free-endpapers. Occasional light soiling or foxing to text. Otherwise, a very good copy, complete, including original blank endpapers. A scarce, early printed edition of one of the most important books in Christendom, from the Plantin Press at Antwerp, one of the focal centers of the fine printed book in the 16th and 17th centuries. In addition to the text of the Imitation, includes a 3-page introduction and 7-page biography of Kempis by Flemish Jesuit hagiographer Heribert Rosweyde (1569-1629) and a comprehensive, 28-page alphabetical index. It is prefaced by a 7-page dissertation, presumably also by Rosweyde, on Kempis' authorship of the Imitation and documenting the 1441 autograph manuscript from which this version of the book is edited. ~KMP~ Founded by Christophe Plantin in 1555, whose son-in-law, Jan Moretus (1543-1610), succeeded him, the Plantin-Moretus firm was run by Balthazar Moretus II (1615-1674) at the time this edition was printed. The firm enjoyed a papal monopoly of some two centuries duration on the printing of key liturgical works, and their successors continued in Antwerp through 1867. The Imitation of Christ was written (or at a minimum, transcribed) by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis, as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. They were copied together in one manuscript as early as 1427, by Kempis, and copied (and later printed) together fairly consistently thereafter. Soon after hand-copied versions of the Imitatio Christi initially appeared, the printing press was invented, and it was among the first books after the Bible to be printed. There is probably no other book other than the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations. In the past six hundred years, the work has been translated from Kempis' medieval Latin into nearly every language in the world. . Good. 1626.

        New England the most remarqueable parts thus named by the high and mighty Prince Charles, Prince of great Britaine. Observed and described by Captayn John Smith¿ from The General Historie of Virginia, New-England and the Summer Isles

      London 1626 - This is the foundation map of New England cartography, the map that gave it its name and the first devoted to the region. It covers the area from the present Penobscot Bay in Maine to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After a period of inactivity following his Virginian escapades, Captain John Smith was invited by four London merchants to explore the coastline of New England. These men, Buley, Langham, Roydon and Skelton, financed two ships that sailed in March 1614 with instructions to return with a profitable cargo. There had been earlier English voyages between the years 1602 and 1605 by men like Gosnold, Pring and Weymouth. Although these did not amount to anything of great importance, Gosnold is credited with naming Cape Cod. Smith made a good crossing in six weeks, arriving off Monhegan Island near the Kennebec estuary. By now the waters of New England, particularly Maine, were visited by dozens of English and French fishing vessels a year. One of Smith's vessels concentrated on catching fish and collecting other valuable commodities. Smith continued down the coast to chart and explore, lamenting the poor quality of existing maps: '[he] had six or seven several plots of those Northern parts, so unlike each to other, and most so differing from any true proportion, or resemblance of the Country, as they did me no more good, then so much waste paper, though they cost me more'. Naming Plymouth Rock he described the place as 'an excellent good harbor, good lands, and no want of anything but industrious people'. This proved the incentive six years later for the 'Mayflower' Pilgrims to relocate here after their first choice proved unwise. In mid July after just six weeks Smith returned to England. It is remarkable that in this short time he managed to glean so much of the coastline. Indeed, the amount of work that is actually his own has been called into question by some. Smith settled up with the four merchants who had backed him and approached the Plymouth Company with the idea of founding a colony. By now though Smith's luck had run out. Setting off in 1615, he was held back by appalling weather which destroyed his ship and nearly cost him his life. Undaunted he set out again and ran into one pirate ship, and then two French privateers. Finally, he was interrupted by four French warships suspecting that he was a privateer. Whilst Smith was on board one of the French ships to present his credentials, the shipmaster, Captain Chambers, fled, leaving Smith stranded with the French. Captive, he sailed with them as they attacked the ships of all nations. When the ship he was in became shipwrecked, he managed to survive and make his way back from France, arriving in England in December 1615. He was thought to have perished. Smith tried many more times to travel to America, but never succeeded. Whilst on board the French vessel, Smith had passed the time writing a manuscript entitled A Description of New England. This he carried to London and published in June 1616. To accompany this work Smith had Simon van de Passe engrave a map of his surveys. The young Prince Charles provided much of the nomenclature, most of which does not survive today. The notable exceptions are the 'River Charles and Plimouth'. The book was successful, not least because America was very popular at the time. Rebecca Rolfe, otherwise known as Pocahontas, was in London causing quite a stir. During its life the plate was changed numerous times, creating nine recorded states.

      IN NAPOLI, PER LAZZARO SCORIGIO 1626 - Legatura in piena pergamena coeva, con al dorso restauro integrativo e titolo manoscritto da antica mano, sbiadito; ex-libris Piergiorgio Borio. [8] pp., 276, [4] (con antiporta figurato). Nota di possesso al verso della carta di guardia anteriore; esemplare dedicato al sig. Francesco Galeazzo Pinelli duca dell’Acerenza e Marchese di Galatone da Giovanne Germano. Rara edizione italiana (la prima fu del 1585) di questo celebre trattato di oftalmologia redatto dal medico e anatomista francese Du Laurens, autore di una delle anatomie più note e diffuse del suo tempo, l’“Historia Anatomica” (1600). L’opera in esame è un trattato sulla visione, la vista, la depressione e la vecchiaia. Destinata a un pubblico laico, il testo venne pubblicato in oltre venti edizioni con traduzioni in inglese, tedesco, latino e italiano. L’opera è suddivisa in quattro Discorsi: vista, malinconia, reumatismi e vecchiaia. La popolarità del testo, in particolare la trattazione sulla malinconia e l’invecchiamento, giocò un ruolo importante nel plasmare concetti rinascimentali su follia, malinconia e vecchiaia; interessante, inoltre, la correlazione delle teorie su questi temi di Du Laurens con le opere di Shakespeare. Esemplare con all’angolo inferiore esterno delle prime 6 carte restauro integrativo a causa di rosicatura, a scemare; diverse pagine in lieve e uniforme ossidazione, altrimenti esemplare fresco e marginoso.

Als einzeln paginierter Druck und mit einem eigenen Titelblatt zusammen mit dem "Centiloquium Circini Proportionum" des Georg Galgemair erschienene Abhandlung über das "Organon Catholicum", es "behandelt Herstellung (bzw. Aufbau) und Gebrauch von Peilinstrumenten, die der ältere Apian erfand. Dies geht aus den Vorworten unmißverständlich hervor. Galgemair hat freilich seine Vorlagen gründlich und selbständig durchdacht und mit bemerkenswertem didaktischem Geschick präsentiert. Das sogenannte Inventum Apiani ist ausschließlich für terrestrische Anwendungen bestimmt. Im Titel des Inventum wird betont, daß man ohne alle Rechnung auskomme Galgemair ist ein kompetenter Sachbuchautor, kein selbständiger Forscher" (Gerhard Betsch, Praxis geometrica und Kartographie an der Universität Tübingen im 16. und frühen 17. Jahrhundert, in: Friedrich Seck (Hrsg.). Zum 400. Geburtstag von Wilhelm Schickard: zweites Tübinger Schickard-Symposion, 25. bis 27. Juni 1992, Sigmaringen 1995, S. 213). Die Holzschnitt-Tafeln zeigen geometrische Figuren "Dorsum sine Rotula", die große einen astrologischen Jahreskreis (36,5 x 30,5 cm!) mit dem von Galgemair nach Apian erfundenen Instrument: "Nun ist die Peilscheibe des Inventum mit einem Quadratnetz überzogen, ähnlich unserem Millimeterpapier, nur nicht so fein unterteilt. Mit Hilfe dieses Quadratnetzes, und mit etwas Übung, kann man die gesuchte 4. Proportionale direkt auf der Peilscheibe ablesen. Ganz ohne Rechnung geht es im Grunde freilich doch nicht, denn das Quadratnetz muß als passender Maßstab interpretiert werden" (ebenda).

        El Capitan Symon? Dize, que la plata y riquezas del Piru viene a España conduzidas por tierra a Arica? De Arica van embarcadas mas de 200 leguas a Lima, de donde en la armadilla vienen á Panama

      Madrid: , 1626. An impressively detailed proposal to create a transport route from Peru to Spain through the Brazilian Marañon, preceding that of Texeira and Acuña; one of three known copies. 1626. Madrid. In folio (276 mm x 202 mm). 3 pp. Custom made morocco backed cloth folder, and slip case, spine lettered in gilt, a little rubbed. Good copy with mostly marginal loss of paper in the upper margin -touching a few letters-, else a remarkably fresh and clean copy.First edition. Extremely rare imprint, of which Borba de moraes says there are only two known copies. None seem to have appeared ever at auction. "The rarity of the document is explained by the fact that it is a petition addressed to the King of Spain through the Council of the Indies; very few copies of such petitions were printed, for distribution only to the members" (Borba de Moraes).In 1578, the Portuguese king fell in the battle of Alcácer Quibir; he having no successors, the throne became vacant, hence beginning two years of disputes over the crown. By 1580, Phillip II of Spain had incorporated Portugal to his realm. Under this period of unification, Brazil was part of the Spanish-Portuguese Empire; because of this, the prospect of an alternative route of transport was thought possible ?thus avoiding the much dangerous route through the Magellan Straits; as a result, there were a few attempts to create a new transport route across the Brazilian Amazons. In 1639, several years after Silveira´s, an expedition lead by Pedro de Teixeira was undertaken to investigate the viability of a commercial route going through the Brazilian Amazons. The imprint begins describing the route followed by the Gold and Silver from Peru before reaching Spain; Silveira considers it too long and then tells of the dangers of Piracy off the coast of Panama saying "con grande costa y peligro... en que las contrarias naciones estan peritas en passer a la mar del Sur" and adding that this situation has been increased by the discovery of the Strait of Saint Vincent. "In this petition Simao Estacio da Silveira offers his services, under certain conditions, to open up a new route for transporting silver from Peru to Spain down one of the rivers of Maranhao. He writes of the dangers of the route then in use, from Africa to Lima and Panama, especially at that time, since the enemy had become very skilful in passing through the Straits of Saint Vincent (Cape Horn) to the Pacific. He stresses the advantages of the route through the Maranhao". The author emphasizes his point by referring to Drake´s expedition through the Magellan Strait. Then explains why the voyage is arduous and dangerous, making a synthetic note of the route to be followed by the ships, mostly through the Caribbean (Habana, Cartagena, etc.). Just then, he addresses his petition, to open a new road of transport through a river of the Marañon.Silveira proceeds to explain his plan to develop his new transport route with 7 conditions and steps, with an excellent level of detail. At the end, makes a note of the possibility of building their own ships in the region, provided the large amount of trees there found. Acuña would later give a similar proposal.Borba de Moraes, 814. Palau, 313856, never saw it, but refers to an imprint which appears to be the same work, sadly only refers to it quoting the manuscript title of the binding, in the National Library of Madrid.

Auflage von 1567 der Dietenberger-Bibel durch den Kölner Drucker Johann Kreps. - Johann Dietenberger (* um 1475-1537) studierte ab 1511 in Köln und Heidelberg Theologie und promovierte sich 1514 an der Universität Mainz zunächst zum Lic. theol. und 1515 zum Doktor der Theologie. 1516 und 1517 war er Prior in Frankfurt. Hieran schloss sich eine Tätigkeit als Regens und Dozent der Theologie im Kloster zu Trier an. Er wurde 1519 Prior in Koblenz und war dann erneut 1520-26 Prior in Frankfurt und ab 1527 wieder in Koblenz. Im Rahmen des Reichstag zu Augsburg 1530 wurde er beauftragt die gegen die "Confessio Augustana" gerichtete Schrift der katholischen Kirche "Confutatio Augustana" mit zu verfassen. 1532 wurde er als Professor an die Universität Mainz berufen. Dietenberger verfasste zahlreiche, vor allem polemische und asketische Schriften, nennenswert sind hiervon eine 1534 in Mainz erschienene Bibelübersetzung, die Dietenberger-Bibel, und ein deutscher Katechismus von 1537. Diese Ausgabe die letzte vor der Revision durch den Theologen Kaspar Ulenberg.Die Dietenberger-Bibel war im Gegensatz zur Lutherbibel in einer leicht oberdeutschen Sprachform gehalten, während die Übersetzung des Ingolstädter Theologen Dr. Eck sehr starke bairische Züge hatte. Dies führte dazu, dass die Bibel von Johann Dietenberger in den katholischen Regionen außerhalb Bayerns und Österreichs die meist gedruckte Bibel wurde. Schon 1540, 1550, 1555 und 1575 entstand eine neue Auflage in Köln, 1564, 1571 und 1618 in Mainz, sowie Auflagen aus Würzburg, Frankfurt und Nürnberg.
