        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

      Johannem Beale, Londini 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

Il est d'une importance manifeste pour l'étude de l'histoire civile et militaire du Royaume de France. Blaise de Montluc (1502-1577) servit quatre rois, durant son exercice, Il fut également un partisan austère de la centralisation monarchique. A 75 ans il demanda à être libéré de sa charge de gouverneur de Guyenne afin de pouvoir se retirer et ainsi dicter ces célèbres ''Mémoires'', considérés par Henri IV comme le bréviaire des soldats et cités également par Napoléon dans une lettre adressée au Directoire: >. L'oeuvre livre des rapports très détaillés sur les principales batailles auxquelles participa Montluc avec un grand courage et une réélle science de l'art militaire. Montluc dresseainsi un tableau très vivant du combat de Cérisolles, qui permit de dégager Carmagnole et ainsi assura la possession momentanée du Piemont par François Ier. Pour montluc, le moment le plus intense de sa vie de miltaire fut la défense de la ville de Sienne. En 1555, lors de son retour en France, il reçut de ''son bon maître'' Henri II, un accueil tel que jamais aucun sujet n'en obtint de semblable d'un souverain. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        NUEVO DESCUBRIMIENTO DEL GRAN CATHAYO, O REYNOS DE TIBET, POR EL PADRE ANTONIO DE ANDRADE, DE LA COMPANIA DE JESUS, PORTUGUES, EN EL ANO DE 1624 [caption title]

      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

      - 11, 8 x 17,6 cm, Tadell. 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] 1000 gr.

        Compendium maleficarum, ex quo nefandissima in genus humanum opera venefica, ac ad illa vitamda remedia conspicitur. In hac autem secunda aditione ab eodem authore pulcherrimis doctrinis potentissimus ad solvendum omne opus diabolicum; nec non modus crandi febricitantes, ad Dei gliriam, & Hominum solatium. Seconda edizione (la prima del 1608).

      Ex Collegii Ambrosiani Typ. 1626 In 8°, m. pelle no coeva, pp. 391 + 39 inc. xilografiche (7,5 x 6 cm) raffiguranti Satana, nei suoi molteplici aspetti, con i suoi adepti ed alcune scene di malefici. Front. su ricca e pregevole inc. Testata. Capilettera. Tagli spruzzati blu, piatti marmorizzati. La stesura del Compendium Maleficarum si colloca molto probabilmente durante il soggiorno del suo autore in Germania, alla corte di Guglielmo III, duca di Julich-Clevenberg nel 1608. Frate dell'ordine di Sant'Ambrogio ad Nemus, Guaccio nacque a Milano in data incerta ma collocabile nei decenni centrali del Cinquecento. Risale, infatti, proprio al 1605 la sua convocazione al capezzale del duca Guglielmo, afflitto da una strana malattia. Ravvisando alcuni sintomi che per l'epoca non erano per niente rari, il frate pronunciò la sua diagnosi: era Satana, il perfido signore degli inferi, invocato dalla detestabile figura di un mediatore terreno che in cambio d'effimeri vantaggi gli avrebbe ceduto l'anima. Dopo aver giustificato il suo libro con lo scopo di contrastare l'arroganza degli stregoni, che andava sempre più crescendo, egli elencò i vari tipi di maleficio di amore e di odio, i legamenti, le malattie causate dai demoni; nell'ultima parte spiegò i rimedi divini e naturali per le vittime della stregoneria, oltre a dare formule per esorcizzare cibi e medicamenti.

        STAMPA PAESAGGIO

      BOLOGNA, metà del XVII secoloIncisione originale eseguita all' acquaforte su matrice di rame, in basso a sinistra indicazione dell' autore. Raffinato paesaggio animato inscritto entro tondo tipografico. La trasposizione su lastra eseguita con abile e fine tratteggio è opera di Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi, artista, scenografo ed architetto bolognese attivo perlopiù a Roma, noto per la sua abilità di disegnatore, incisore e pittore di paesaggi. A Roma dipinse decorazioni con vedute paesistiche nella villa Doria Pamphili ( da lui stesso progettata in collaborazione con Algardi ), nel palazzo Borghese, al Quirinale ed in S. Maria ai Monti. Grimaldi rappresenta la prosecuzione del particolare tipo di paesaggio creato da Antonio Carracci e dal Domenichino, che egli diffuse anche in quadri da cavalletto, ben identificabili per il colore brillante e smaltato, e in numerosissimi disegni di accurata fattura . Allievo dei Carracci a Bologna nel 1626 si stabilì a Roma, dove nel 1636 divenne membro dell'Accademia di San Luca .La sua attività si estese fino alla corte parigina di Luigi XIV , affrescando anche il Louvre ed il palazzo del Cardinal Mazzarino . Alcuni contributi recenti della storia dell'arte e della critica hanno approfondito aspetti specifici e peculiari delle sua produzione, impegnato nell'ambito della scenografia e degli allestimenti effimeri, emerge in particolare la sua forma di decoratore di interni in importanti ville e palazzi secenteschi di cui disegnò anche gli arredi e i giardini. Esemplare in buone condizioni conservative.

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".

        Barbiere di Tiberio Malfi da Monte Sarchio Barbiere, e consule dell’arte in Napoli Libri Tre. Ne qualisi ragiona dell’eccellenza dell’Arte, e de’ suoi precetti. Delle Vene, e regole d’aprirle. Dell’applicatione de’ remed

      Naples: Ottavio Beltrano, 1626. Very rare first edition of this handsomely illustrated work on barbers giving detailed instructions on both the medical and aesthetic aspects of the profession. Published at a time when barbers saw their territory increasingly contested by professional surgeons, Malfi’s work stresses the medical knowledge of barbers and their expertise in performing important medical procedures. Illustrated with portraits of famous barbers in history, anatomical models and scenes showing surgical procedures, the work is a mirror of a profession that would undergo major change by the end of the century. The work is divided into three books. The first is concerned with the art of hairdressing, and includes chapters on the dignity of the beard (Malfi’s own consists of a large twirled mustache and a thin strip of goatee) and on the damaging and deforming effects of long hair on men, as well as descriptions of the instruments and techniques needed for hair cutting and grooming. The second chapter is dedicated to bloodletting, explaining the medical rationale behind it, and introducing basic anatomy and the location of veins and arteries. The instructions for the various procedures are detailed and practical, including advice on how to position the patient, what to do when the desired vein is difficult to raise, and how to collect the blood. The illustrations to this book range from anatomical woodcuts to engraved scenes with several figures and fully realized background landscapes. The final book covers various other surgical procedures which a barber might perform, including the application of leeches, suturing and other treatments of wounds, and the more macabre practice of cutting open a live chicken and pressing it to the head of a mentally afflicted patient, in order to infuse him with the dying bird’s animal spirit. Malfi, who was a barber and consul in Naples, emphasizes his erudition, citing a great number of classical and contemporary authorities – his list of sources runs into three pages and precedes the table of contents. In addition, he seeks to underline just how indispensable the barber’s art is to the more socially distinguished physician, comparing the latter to an architect who relies on skilled craftsmen to turn his projects into reality. Malfi also gives a historical overview of his profession and lists illustrious barbers in history, including those of Cleopatra, Louis XI of France and the Italian poet Domenico Burchiello. This section is accompanied by eight quarter-page engravings of portraits with Latin inscriptions. The engraved title page has two barbers, extracted from works by Fulgosus and Horace, holding the title scroll inside an architectural frame. The early seventeenth century saw a number of publications on the art of the barber, written probably in response to the increased competition from surgeons and various kinds of charlatans. These include Courval, Satire contre les charlatans et pseudo-medecins empriques, Paris, 1610 ; Gilles, La Fleur des remedes contre le mal des dents, Paris, 1621, and D’Amato, Prattica nuova et utilissima di tutto quello ch’'al diligente Barbiero s’appartiene, Napoli, 1632. Barbers, along with surgeons, were usually allowed to attend medical lectures, and were sometimes called upon to perform anatomical demonstrations in universities., As a manual, rather than intellectual, trade, surgery was considered inferior to medicine. By the middle of the seventeenth century, the advent of ever more elaborate wigs led to the gradual separation of hairdressing from surgery, with the barber’s profession being eventually split into two. The present work is part of a small corpus of texts trying to uphold the unity and professionalism of that trade. OCLC lists UCLA, Yale, NLM, College of Physicians, Wellcome. The work was reissued under the title Nuova prattica della decoratoria manuale in 1629, and received a German translation in 1676. * Krivatsy 7316; Wellcome 3998; Waller I, 275 (2nd and German edition).. Large 4to [25.5 x 18.25 cm], (12) ff., including engraved title and author portrait, including 8 engraved portraits of barbers, 2 additional portraits, 11 full-page engravings of anatomical figures or surgical operations, 10 woodcuts.

        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]

      Lisbon: por Mateo Piñeiro, 1626. Quarto. (7 1/2 x 5 5/8 inches). Collation: A-E4, F3 (ll.1-22 text, with caption title and 8-line woodcut initial at start of text on recto of l.1; [1 leaf] "licencias" on recto, verso blank). 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.

        ...RELACION VERDADERA DEL VIAJE, ENTRADA, Y RECIBIMIETO QUE LA CIUDAD DE BARCELONA HIZO A LA BUENA VENIDA DEL SEÑOR CARDENAL LEGADO, EN 18, DE MARÇO DESTE AÑO DE 1626

      Madrid: Bernardino de Guzman, [1626].. [4]pp. In Spanish. Woodcut illustration of ship and boats landing near a castle on first page. Small folio. Dbd.

Wear along folds; all losses filled by silk. Good. Spanish newsletter account of the historical visit of Cardinal Barberini to Barcelona during his 1626 diplomatic mission to Spain. Francesco Barberini of Florence (1597-1679) was the nephew of Pope Urban VIII and a prominent church leader during the 17th century, noted for his diplomatic activities during the Thirty Years' War and his extensive humanism. A lifelong supporter of artists, scientists, and intellectuals, Barberini was one of three of ten judges at Galileo's trial who refused to sign Galileo's sentence, and he was the founder of the renowned Barberini Library, a central meeting place for scholars in 17th-century Rome and home to one the world's great collections of manuscripts (now part of the Vatican Library). In February 1626, Barberini departed Rome as legate a latere to Spain, where he negotiated with the Count-Duke of Olivares on the question of French and Spanish control of the Valtellina. On March 18, 1626, Barberini arrived in Barcelona amidst much fanfare, which is recounted in the present newsletter. The text describes the visit from the landing of the Papal embassy to a series of musical performances and celebrations and the various meetings between the young Cardinal and local dignitaries.

        Compendium maleficarum, ex quo nefandissima in genus humanum opera venefica, ac ad illa vitamda remedia conspicitur. In hac autem secunda aditione ab eodem authore pulcherrimis doctrinis potentissimus ad solvendum omne opus diabolicum; nec non modus crandi febricitantes, ad Dei gliriam, & Hominum solatium. Seconda edizione (la prima del 1608).

      Ex Collegii Ambrosiani Typ. 1626 In 8°, m. pelle no coeva, pp. 391 + 39 inc. xilografiche (7,5 x 6 cm) raffiguranti Satana, nei suoi molteplici aspetti, con i suoi adepti ed alcune scene di malefici. Front. su ricca e pregevole inc. Testata. Capilettera. Tagli spruzzati blu, piatti marmorizzati. La stesura del Compendium Maleficarum si colloca molto probabilmente durante il soggiorno del suo autore in Germania, alla corte di Guglielmo III, duca di Julich-Clevenberg nel 1608. Frate dell'ordine di Sant'Ambrogio ad Nemus, Guaccio nacque a Milano in data incerta ma collocabile nei decenni centrali del Cinquecento. Risale, infatti, proprio al 1605 la sua convocazione al capezzale del duca Guglielmo, afflitto da una strana malattia. Ravvisando alcuni sintomi che per l'epoca non erano per niente rari, il frate pronunciò la sua diagnosi: era Satana, il perfido signore degli inferi, invocato dalla detestabile figura di un mediatore terreno che in cambio d'effimeri vantaggi gli avrebbe ceduto l'anima. Dopo aver giustificato il suo libro con lo scopo di contrastare l'arroganza degli stregoni, che andava sempre più crescendo, egli elencò i vari tipi di maleficio di amore e di odio, i legamenti, le malattie causate dai demoni; nell'ultima parte spiegò i rimedi divini e naturali per le vittime della stregoneria, oltre a dare formule per esorcizzare cibi e medicamenti.
