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.

      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.

        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.

      . 11, 8 x 17,6 cm, Tadell. Preis in CHF: 15400. Im Bild signiert(auf der Schmalseite der Sitzfläche des linken Spielers). - Bezaubernde detailreiche Szene von 4 Karten spielenden Männern in Innenraum.Jan van Kessel (1626 in Antwerp - 1679 in idem) was a Flemish painter of still lifes, who was the father of another painter with the same name Jan van Kessel, and Jan Brueghel the Elder's grandson. He was the son of Hieronymus van Kessel and Paschasia Brueghel, and was a pupil of his father and his uncle Jan Brueghel the Younger. He became a member of the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke in 1644 as "blomschilder" (flower painter). He was influenced by Daniel Seghers. According to Houbraken, he was famous in his lifetime for the neatness of his flower paintings and Cornelis de Bie wrote a poem about him.He specialized in small-scale pictures of subjects gleaned from the natural world such as floral still lifes and allegorical series showing animal kingdoms, the four elements, the senses, or the parts of the world. Obsessed with picturesque detail, van Kessel worked from nature and used illustrated scientific texts as sources for filling his pictures with objects represented with almost scientific accuracy.Jan van Kessel painted many animals (especially insects) and flowers, as well as some mythological and biblical scenes. his choice of subject leaned towards those which included animals and plants. His pupils were his sons Jan and Ferdinand van Kessel.[1]

        La prima (seconda) parte dei Ragionamenti sopra le letanie di Nostra Signora.

      in Genova, per Giuseppe Pavoni, 1626. - 2 parties en 1 volume in-folio. 2ff. 429pp. et 23ff. 483pp. Reliure ancienne, plats refaits. Edition Originale fort rare de ce recueil de "raisonnements" théologiques à la gloire de la Vierge Marie composé par Nicolo Riccardi (1585-1639), surnommé "le Monstre de Rome" tant pour son obésité que pour l'énormité de son savoir scholastique. Natif de Gênes mais élevé dès sa plus tendre enfance en Espagne, Riccardi se fit remarquer par ses talents oratoires qui le firent nommer comme prédicateur à la cour de Madrid puis à Rome où il devint Maître du Sacré Palais en 1629. Ce livre publié en 1626 est son premier ouvrage. "Ses mouvements passionnés et la hardiesse des pensées l'entrainaient quelquefois jusqu'aux limites de l'hérésie" (Larousse). Riccardi est surtout connu de nos jours pour avoir autorisé en 1632 la publication des fameux "Dialogi" de Galilée dont il écrivit la préface, conduisant à l'un des épisodes les plus célèbres de l'histoire des sciences ("e pur si muove"). "Mais Galilée pouvait-il arriver à obtenir le permis d’imprimer ses "Dialogues sur le flux et le reflux de la mer"? Car dans son ouvrage il souhaitait apporter une confirmation de l'héliocentrisme grâce à une explication du phénomène des marées fondée sur le mouvement de la terre qu'il considèrait comme vrai. Le prince Cesi, Giovanni Ciampoli et Benedetto Castelli l'encouragent à se rendre à Rome avec le manuscrit du livre. Certes rien n’est assuré car, comme le montre un entretien entre Castelli et le cardinal Francesco Barberini, le mouvement de la terre paraît être en contradiction avec les vérités théologiques, mais la situation est propice puisque le nouveau maître du Sacré Palais, le dominicain Niccolò Riccardi, responsable des permis d’imprimer donnés à Rome, connaît Galilée depuis 1624 et lui est favorable" (Beretta). Belle typographie baroque. Quelques traces de mouillures sans gravité. Ex-libris manuscrit du couvent des Recollets de Sainte-Marthe, près de Nimègue (Hollande) daté de 1654. Une autre note manuscrite ancienne indique: "Ce livre a este achepté à lyon par le R.P. louis manis de lyons pour le Convens de nyons il a couste 15#". Cachet postérieur sur le titre et quelques feuillets de texte. Bon exemplaire. Sur le rôle de Riccardi dans la publication des Dialogi, voir notamment Francesco Beretta, "Urbain VIII protagoniste de la condamnation de Galilée". [Attributes: First Edition]

        Henrici Spelmanni equi. anglo-brit. archæologus: in modum glossarii ad rem antiquam posteriorem

      Londini: Johannem Beale, 1626. Londini: Johannem Beale. 1626. "First edition, folio, pagination is erratic throughout, but the book is complete, as issued; *, A-2O6, 2P4; full contemporary calf, recently rebacked with original spine laid down, unadorned spine in 6 compartments, raise bands, 19th-century manuscript ""Spelman's Glossarium"" on upper cover; extremities rubbed; pages darkened, tear to bottom edge of 2G6, else very good and sound. 19th-century bookplate of ""G.S.C"" mounted to front pastedown, small ownership signature ""Th. Holden"" on ffep.& & STC 23065, with the 13th line of the title page ""Chartis & Formulis"". The title and the first leaf were subsequently reset; this copy is in the first state. The work evolved out of Spelman's studies of early English law, but ""at the outset he experienced so much difficulty in assigning the proper meanings to Anglo-Saxon and Latin terms, that he determined to postpone his legal researches"" in favor of the philological question. ""In 1626 the first volume of the Glossary, extending to the end of the letter 'L' was published. Spelman had offered it in vain to Beale, the King's printer, for five pounds, or for books of that value. He consequently bore all the expenses of publication. The importance of the volume was immediately recognized by the great scholars of the day, but the greater part of the edition remained on Spelman's hands for ten years. He was collecting materials for the completion of the work until 1638"" but it was not published in his lifetime. An imperfect continuation edited by Dugdale appeared in 1664. ""As an ecclesiastical lawyer he ranks among the best informed that this country has produced, and his Glossary gives him a title to the name of inaugurator philological science in England"" (DNB)."

        Imagen del Mundo sobre la esfera, cosmografia, y geografia, teorica de Planetas, y arte de navegar

      The Strait of Anian legend, a rare Spanish treatise on Navigation. 1626. Alcala. Juan Garcia. In 8vo (193 mm x 135 mm). 4 ff. + 276 + 2 ff. Old vellum, recased, endpapers renewed, spine lettered in ink. Title page with marginal restorations away from text, usual toning; overall fine.First edition. Maldonado was a Spanish writer, skilled navigator and explorer. Little is known about his life, except that he became a sailor at a young age. As Ferrer?s only book, it comprises the full array of nautical, cosmographical and geographic knowledge accumulated during his lifetime. At one point, he offered to divulge how to find longitude at sea, for a 5,000 Ducats fee. One of his works on navigation at the Biblioteca Nacional of Spain "Señor. El Capitan Lorenço Ferrer Maldonado, dize, q ha mas de ocho años que con curioso desseo de saber cosas de importacia.. estudio prolijamente el arte de fixar las agujas de nauegar, de tal suerte que permaneciessen rectamente sobre la linea Meridiana por todos los Paralelos y Meridianos del mundo"Ferrer became known through a memorial given to the King of Spain. In 1609 submitted a relation to Philip III claiming to have participated in a voyage to the Northwest Passage in 1588 where he had discovered a northern pass; most specifically, that the Strait of Anian linked the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans ?the Strait?s alleged existence had been represented cartographically earlier in the 16th century- and thus the controversy began. This memorial to the King had at its core the purpose of giving impulse to exploring the region, and it eventually resulted in the stimulus necessary for the exploration of the Pacific. This is the first printed work to assert his allegation."Maldonado urged in strong terms the necessity of Spain?s fortifying the Strait of Anian before the English reached it, and he dwelt glowingly upon economic and other advantages to the nation of controlling this short trade route to the Far East. Maldonado was evidently familiar with English voyages of the period, especially those of John Davis, and probably he knew of Michael Lok?s support of Juan de Fuca, who claimed to have discovered the Strait of Anian in 1592. Despite the ingenuity and persuasiveness of his argument, he was unable to obtain official interest in his supposed discoveries or support of his plans." (Alan Cooke, "FERRER MALDONADO, LORENZO," in Dictionary of Canadian Biography, vol. 1, University of Toronto/Université Laval, 2003)As it turns out, what he described resembled greatly the Bering Strait, and thus it was believed to be true by many. His 1609 relation, not easily discarded, was subject to works by Bauche, Fernandez de Navarrete and Novo y Colson later in the 18th and 19th centuries. As per Spanish enterprises go, this memorial is a predecessor of Malaspina?s expedition aboard the Descubierta. In 1798, Bauche and Zevallos published a "Disertaciones sobre la navegacion a las Indias Orientales por el Norte de la Europa", dealing with the "supposed discoveries of Ferrer Maldonado" (Sabin). In 1881, Pedro de Novo y Colson dedicated a work to his theories and those of Juan de Fuca "Sobre los viajes apocrifos de Juan de Fuca y de Lorenzo Ferrer Maldonado, Ultima teoria sobre la Atlantida". "A very rare book by the famous Spanish navigator, whose pretended voyage in the Arctic regions in 1588, has excited so much controversy" (Sabin).Rare, last copy offered at auction was Sotheby?s, 2009, L09774, estimated 10,000 ? 15,000 GBP, the next in line was 1962. COPAC lists only the British Library copy.Sabin, 44108. Medina, BHA, 812. Palau, 90524. JCB II, pp. 199-200.

Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 954. Den holländske köpmannen och ekonomiska skriftställaren Willem Usselinx (1567-1647) förvärvade som ung ingående kunskaper om handels- och kolonisationsmöjligheter i Amerika. Sedan han 1623 utmanövrerats från det holländska västindiska kompani han själv varit med om att bygga upp, erbjöd han sina tjänster till Sverige och Danmark. Han argumenterade för att Östersjöländerna skulle utvidga sin handel med Amerika. Usselinx idéer fick snabbt framgång i Sverige och Gustav II Adolf lät grunda ett svenskt kompani för handel med Västindien och Nordamerika redan 1626. Det fick namnet Söderkompaniet och i planen för detta ingick även den koloni som Sverige skaffade sig i Delaware. Finansieringen av kompaniet gick dock trögt och Usselinx försökte ihärdigt finna finansiärer utomlands, framförallt i Tyskland

      Lisbon: Mateo Pineiro, 1626.. 23 leaves. Small quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Manuscript foliations in upper outer corner of recto of each leaf. A bit of faint spotting. Very good. The first Spanish language edition, following by a few months the first edition (which was printed in Portuguese), printed in Lisbon the same year. This is the second overall printing of Andrade's important letter. The first authoritative, printed account of a European traveller's visit to Tibet. 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 two more times, consecrating a church at Tsaparang in 1626. Andrade's printed letter is crucially important as being the first authentic report of Tibet by a European who undoubtedly went there (the 14th-century visit of Odorico de Pordenone remains in dispute). It was very popular and quickly went through many 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" - Lach. A most important European account of travel in Asia, and the first European experience of Tibet. Lach, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE III, pp.338-39, 1773-1775. SOMMERVOGEL I:329.1. CORDIER 2898.

The movement through recitative to aria, or to choral and instrumental polyphony, is thoughtfully crafted and paced, though the recitative itself lacks melodic and rhythmic variety. Mazzocchi tried to articulate the recitative with what he called mezz’arie. These are single phrases or brief passages in song style that were at the time also labelled ‘in aria’, ‘alla battuta’ or even ‘ariette’, and now usually ‘arioso’. Pirrotta cites Mazzocchi’s mezz’arie as the ancestors of the later introspective cavatina." Margaret Murata in Grove online. Pirotta also "saw in the character of Arsete in La catena a precursor of Seneca in Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea." Frederick Hammond in Grove online& & "Mazzocchi noted that his many mezz’arie [in La Catena] – brief passages in aria style – ‘break the tedium of the recitative’. Simple, fluid recitative dialogue, monologues with judicious harmonies, tuneful arias and ‘half-arias’ are further contrasted by large choral ensembles with dancing at the ends of each of the five brief acts. The scenic effects, executed by Francesco de Cuppis, were the most elaborate yet staged for musical drama in Rome." Murata in Grove online
